    If you want a game unlike anything you have ever played get DayZ. It is really good for it being in alpha and with some more updates it can only get better. You can go the same place 100 times in DayZ and every time it will be different. You will see players, do you trust them or not? Need to eat? Kill a sheep, cow, lamb, rabbit, chicken, or find some good ol' DayZ Heinz Beans! You can also go into shock, break your leg(s), bleed to death, etc. Its a scary world out there in DayZ get some buddies and get to playing. Expand

    Is this mod a bit broken and unoptimized? Yes. Does it show a lot or promise? Yes. Is it still fun to play? Absolutely. This mod is by far one of the most entertaining games I have installed right now, but it's not for everyone, easy to learn or easy to play unless you have the right mindset. Expect to die the first few times and experiment, read up a bit on it - if you are looking for a challenge and suspense then this game will bring it, and more. Expand

    Great great game with good potential with some glaring issues. Because it is a mod there have been dozens of times where zombies would sprint through walls and windows and break your leg, make you bleed, or even kill you in one hit at full health. Since the servers are unregulated if you accidentally join a server with a piece of S**T hacker then your hours of saving supplies will vanish in a instant when your spawned into the middle of the sky and fall into a pile of other unfortunate survivors. If this game gets dedicated regulated servers and bugs fixed and a more accessible map (aka you can go inside most buildings instead of a few) it would easily be a 10 but that is not the case just yet. It will become its own game since the modders are now funded by the creators of ARMA 2 but till then I would just find another survival game to pass the time, unless of course you enjoy being unfairly at others mercy.

    i love this game but a lot of people will just shoot on sight NOT FOR EVERYONE it is good with great potential although the zombie mechanics i think are complete **** on account of this it is a great time waster i do not like how you lose all progress such as no vault though i love the hardcore aspect from die you lose items on the person between dayz and warz i would choose warz but if i am playing with a group of players i would without a doubt choose dayz for the great multiplayer aspect where you have to rely on others to help you get to different points on the game over all i think this is a great play with friends to join you on the experience but if you are looking for a softer core version of this game one that you can play on your own with out hacks i would have to send you to warz keep on mind these games are both till in progress i believe all i have to say is give each game a chance Collapse

    What zombie survival? The AI zed is so unintelligent that the only fear is the ever growing base of prepubescent players willing to kill you just because their "kill death ratio" (KDR) somehow matters in a game that doesn't measure such a thing. New players will inevitibly be killed continuously by overpowered players (most of which hack to do so) who assume kill on sight rather than help. The best bet is to save for a game better than DayZ and better than War Z. Expand
