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 oneIs 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 sprintGreat 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 ii 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 Expand

    Want a game that is overhyped, extremely boring, and glitchy? Look no further! I started playing DayZ from the very beginning and thought "WowWant a game that is overhyped, extremely boring, and glitchy? Look no further! I started playing DayZ from the very beginning and thought "Wow these graphics are underwhelming" but I kept going because that wasn't what I was looking for. I was looking for an experience with zombies unmatched! But I didn't find that either. What you will find are a ton of glitchy, slow, and dumb zombies that you can easily escape from. The real threat comes from the people. Usually hackers, liars, and server hoppers. People claim that this game has the best PvP system ever, but if you engage someone they will more than likely log out and move to a different server. Not only that but you will be crawling for hours around a bland map looking for items you will use up and then need again or be shot. The realism is hardly there. The most realistic part is that you need to drink, eat, and die when shot. The time it takes to eat and drink is out of proportion and you can die from a 5 foot fall. Anyone claiming this game is realistic are just fooling themselves. It amazes me that people can even call this a zombie game. This game is nothing but a glitchy, hacker infested, survival game that keeps you playing for hours on end to find something that you will be searching for all over again in an hour tops. TL;DR: Are you looking for a game with bad AI, hackers EVERYWHERE, hours of mindless crawling, glitch galore, and hardly any realism!? Look no further!!!! Expand
