  • Summary: Surviving isn’t just about blowing zombie’s heads off. Depression, starvation, trust issues, loneliness, illness, insanity. These are just some of the things you have to deal with in Project Zomboid.

    Di solito recensisco pochi giochi...e quando lo faccio perchè meritano...gioco a questo fin da quando ci fu la prima release su DesuraDi solito recensisco pochi giochi...e quando lo faccio perchè meritano...gioco a questo fin da quando ci fu la prima release su Desura (piattaforma molto simile a steam ma dove passano per primo molti giochi per il 90% indie e solo dopo esser passati di la passano su steam) Giocato da quando ancora aveva una totale e diversa grafica,quasi cartoonesca,ora maturato e dopo anni ed anni diventato un alpha game che di alpha ormai ha poco in quanto totalmente giocabile,ma ovviamente dovuto al fatto che ha ancora moltissimi bug (ma non da renderlo ingiocabile anzi) e ai contenuti da inserire ancora in numero esorbitante,colui che ha progettato a questo gioco lo ha voluto (tanto di cappello) tenere appunto in questo stage...be sicuramente certe software house dovrebbero prendere esempio da questo ragazzo che almeno ammette che se il prodotto non completo non ha senso di renderlo in beta stage o in totale release completa, molto spesso molti giochi tripla A sono veramente delle beta,e molti contenuti vengono aggiunti dopo e pure a pagamento..
    Allora questo gioco a molti non soddisferà per l elevatissima difficoltà,ma secondo me li il bello,morire per poi riprovare e durare più giorni (gente che riuscita a sopravvivere per mesi e qualcuno per qualche anno rendetevi conto,ma sono pochi eletti) ogni cosa e totalmente usfruibile,da coltelli spalma burro,semi di vegetali,mazze da baseball,chiodi e così via...ovviamente alla parola chiodi la gente pensa subito al loro uso ed alla parola fondamentale "CRAFTING" e questo essendo un survival game non poteva non avere una componente tale...
    aggiungete il suddetto chiodo ad una mazza e creerete una mazza letale, tagliate una maglia e creerete bende per le vostre ferite (ai graffi probabilmente ce cura,ma ai morsi addio vita in ogni caso) con i chiodi e travi potrete costruire una roccaforte e quant altro...
    Insomma la fantasia e il vostro modo di giocare cambierà ogni partita e vi farà confrontare con amici per migliorare e durare di più....
    Potrei continuare per ore,potrei persino dire che aggiungeranno presto gli npc (alcuni benevoli altri voltagabbana) aggiungeranno anche zone di contenimento zombie da parte di militari e quant altro (per ora passeranno elicotteri e rumori di soldati che attireranno gli zombie verso il suono) e aprirei un ennesima parentesi a riguardo giusto per solleticare la vostra curiosità verso questo gioco in quanto anche rompere una finestra o far suonare un allarme attirerà i zombie verso tale luogo (a volte potrebbe essere una gran cosa questa) il meteo si compone in soleggiato e piovoso e potrebbero crearvi problemi in quanto se indosserete maglioni pesanti durante giornate calde vi stancherete prima e avrete sete ancora prima (e visto che di acqua ce n poca può essere un casino) e la pioggia abbasserà la vostra temperatura corporea e vi rendere pure tristi e depressi tutti umidificati.....in futuro verranno aggiunti oggetti,meccaniche,crafting vari e renderanno sicuramente questo un gioco addictive...un pò come fece minecraft a suo tempo...insomma quando escono di questi giochi fa sempre piacere...poi un gioco survival zombie così figo merita ed pure più realistico di qualunque altro zombie game giocato perdere non mai stato così divertente

The isometric renderingThis is a phenomenal game - it's just as stressful and challenging as I would hope a survival horror game would be. The isometric rendering turned me off at first, but I have high hopes for the next version of the game that gets released. I've never been a fan of Resident Evil or Left 4 Dead, but this zombie game has me hooked. I wish there was the ability to save games, though! Expand

    I would like to begin by saying that I am writing this as of the initial steam release of Project Zomboid as it is a game that has been inI would like to begin by saying that I am writing this as of the initial steam release of Project Zomboid as it is a game that has been in beta for a long time and will continue to be altered as the developers see fit for some time to come. So it is important for any reader to understand that this is a review of the game in its current state and not throughout its entire development history, with that aside let the review begin.
    Project Zomboid is probably the first zombie game to come out in some time that is truly doing something new and unique and for this alone it should be commended. It is an Isometric survival game with token RPG elements which blends the character management of the Sims with a large sandbox environment populated with zombies, buildings,items and even a few other survivors to deal with. The game is not about head-shotting zombies it is about survival which recently has become a somewhat meaningless term due to overuse. fighting zombies is rarely at any point anything more than an absolute necessity to be avoided if at all possible. this is done through use of the game's stealth mechanics which simply rely on line of sight and how much noise you are making with the only way of knowing how stealthy you are being whether or not the zombies are trying to eat you. Now although the game can be lazily described as survival or perhaps survival horror at a stretch the interesting thing is that you cannot survive. There is no way to win the zombies keep coming in ever larger hordes and the food runs out or goes bad and all the while your character gets crushed under the psychological damage of the zombie apocalypse. Your entire play through is as the game puts it the story of how you died. All in all this makes for an enjoyable and unique experience however it is let down slightly by a terrible user interface and the odd glitch here and there that give the game an unpolished feel.
    in the end i recommend playing this game as it is easily worth the meager amount they are charging for it and it does enough things differently to bring a fresh new perspective to the zombie genre, a remarkable feat in itself.

    There are 2 things every game needs to have:

    1. Fun factor.
    2. A Purpose.

    Project Zomboid is not solid on any of those points. What's the point of a game where all you do is go from one house to another to loot things just to survive until you eventually die? Where are the NPC's? Where are the random events? Storyline? Quests? Mission? Purpose? This game is so mediocre it has no purpose or fun to it.

    I know they are an indie group but this games been out since 2011, I'm sorry but that's way too much for such mediocrity 0/10, don't recommend buying even on offer.
