It's something between Minecraft & State of Decay or DayZ. The crafting is becoming better with every update. World generation is not added but planned.

    The first thing everyone notices about this game is the price. But what is early access?

    Early Access is commonly accepted to mean you are paying the developers and funding the game development. You are not "buying" the game but rather helping to further the development and help pay bills.

    So is the price something that should cause you to forget this game?

    Answer: Yes & No. It depends how you think about Early Access. With the description above, I see no room for complaints, you are supporting development with your wallet. As a reward you get the game free when it is released. Since you also get the game early, as in right away, you also can help bug test and report issues to the developers.

    So yes, the money is a high price to pay. Was it worth it? Yes. I would buy a second, third or fourth copy if I had friends/family interested in playing.

    Will this be the next Minecraft craze? It could be, but the price holds it back, the multiplayer in general is a disaster unless you play with friends only.

    Multiplayer is what Minecraft multiplayer would have been if there were not plugins.

    Now, the building in this game can be hard, it is what I had always hoped for in other crafting/building games. The blocks all have physics, which means buildings can fall and crush your face. But as in real life, if you provide the proper supports you wont have a problem.

    The mining in this game leaves much to desire, it's rather slow, and is based on Stamina & Tool damage points, which drain from every hit. Water refills stamina but your tools will require repairing or replacing.

    The good point with mining though, there are not caves to search, you just start digging down and you will start finding ores. Which is great, it's not realistic in anyway but is a improvement over Minecraft's mining in a lot of ways, (which was not realistic either.)

    Overall you have both Multiplayer and Single-player and both are great in there own ways.

    You have many options when starting a game and they can be changed at anytime before starting one of your saves.

    If you don't want to play with giant wasps and hordes of zombies tearing through your walls ready to eat you, you don't have too.

    Play in a war torn landscape as the soul survival or join MP and find other survivors and rebuild civilization.

    Build a giant bunker underground or a giant castle. Build a wall with many traps and defenses surrounding a small town and build a community. It's all up to you and as any role-playing game with unlimited replay-ability it is up to you to find the fun. It's yours for the taking.

    I for one hope to see you soon.

    Cheers,
    Tobias

    I find myself coming back to play this game every few months because it’s just so enjoyable. Obviously this game is still in Alpha and asI find myself coming back to play this game every few months because it’s just so enjoyable. Obviously this game is still in Alpha and as such, can be rough around the edges. But half of the fun is just testing what does and does not work against the zombie’s erratic AI. With that being said, this game has it all... survival, crafting, brain smashing and terrifying greatness. The custom game settings allow a great range of replay-ability and variety in each new game. Think you finally have a solid grasp on combat? Think the game got too easy? Well... try to play with a horde every night. Do you just want to build things? There’s a creative mode with the option to turn off zombies. If you want to build hardcore zombie smashers and then test them on ridiculous hordes, well... you’re free to simply change your settings at any time.

    Each new release offers new things. Alpha 16 to 17 was almost a completely new game. New POIs were introduced and nearly every house now has a unique dungeon layout.

    I got this game during the Halloween sale on steam (2017) for $7.50. I recommend you do the same. The $30 asking price is worth it, if you simply can’t wait to delve into this game.

    Survivre dans un univers post-apocalyptique ou les zombis font la loi, mais pas que, voilà ce que propose le jeu.

    Entre les Z, les piafs tueurs, les chiens, les ours et j’en passe, l’univers de 7 Days To Die se montre bien agressif, c’est naturel pour un jeu de survie, me direz-vous. Le but, à l’image d’un jeu de tower défense, est de préparer ses défenses, afin de résister aux hordes qui viennent attaquer lors de la lune de sang, tout les 7 jours par défaut.

    Ce que j’ai vraiment bien aimé, c’est de pouvoir hautement paramétrer les parties, de A à Z. Il sera ainsi possible de modifier les délais d’apparition des hordes cité précédemment, d’obtenir plus ou moins de loot, d’avoir des caisses de ravitaillement parachutés plus ou moins souvent, et j’en passe tant il y a de possibilité.

    Visuellement parlant, rien d’éblouissant c’est certain, mais la version PC a une sacré longueur d’avance par rapport à la version PS4, version sur laquelle j’avais joué auparavant et qui soufrait d’un épais brouillard, limitant très négativement la distance de vue, c’était l’enfer. Ici, aucun soucis de ce côté, et que ça fait du bien.

    Il y a une véritable notion de RPG, avec la possibilité d’investir des points de compétence pour améliorer son personnage, dans de nombreux domaines.

    Lors de mon aventure, quelques traductions n’était pas faites, vraiment dommage pour les moins bilingues, surtout que les développeurs indiques que le Français est supporté, ce qui n’est donc vrai que partiellement.

    Pour conclure, le jeu est en phase d’alpha depuis bien longtemps maintenant, avec pas mal de changement entre chaque version. Les développeurs finiront-ils par obtenir le résultat qu’ils escomptent ? C’est tout le mal que je leur souhaite. En tout les cas, ils sont sur les bons rails.

Perhaps feeling like I had beenAfter tossing around if $35 was worth it for this game I finally just bought it against my better judgement. Perhaps feeling like I had been stolen from didn't introduce me with the best taste, but the game falls flat. It looks like it has a great concept but it halts up and becomes unplayable whenever you enter combat. Hostiles teleport from lag (While playing offline D:) and zombie dogs begin to flying around you in a dizzying orbit when they reach you and become unkillable. The crafting system is wonky, putting in a design MIGHT cause the game to recognize it. Put it in many times, and it might only work once. And the building mechanic makes no sense.

    It's painful to see a game with so much potential and promise fail on this scale, leaving you feeling robbed and cheated.

    05.04.2020 UPDATE
    Many people write general about game, gamepIay etc. Because I have over 1000h on multiplayer PVP experience I will focus about multipalyer aspect ofthe game, staem forum moderators and, servers and theirs admins.
    1. Because "every fish breaks down from the head" I will start from steam moderators. If you will try to write something bad about the game, servers, you will try to warn other players to aviod some admins and theirs servers, your psot will be delated and you banned.
    2. Game mechanism: SUCKS COMPLETLY!!! You need looooooong time to skill up, earn exp, buy perks to unlock recipes or what will allow you to make better tools, bows and other equipment. To reach lvl 50 which will allow you to to start PVP you need about 100-150h of playing time. If you will discover **** on the server or you will be baned your skills, exp, level is lost, It is not moved from one server to another. Therefore now what about servers.
    3. SERVERS: there are no any dedicated servers, players own servers, so admin pay for it and then he do what he want with other players who are tied to their server because as I wrote above, tehy spent teens of hours and now they do not want to start everything from the beginning. PVP is completly broken due to that. Powerfull admin tools, maps, etc. gives playing admin and his friends strong adventage over others. I heard some stories that for donation of server player could get exp/level or rare stuff as gift GOD ADMIN.
    Everything is nice until you will kill or try to raid admin base. Then he will use all his power to destroy you like cockroach.
    When you will break into theirs base fast you will see that they are cheating, duping items or taking them from cheat global inventory.
    My last super embarrassing situatuin about PVP experience was that on PVP server I have been kicked because I killed admin, and he wrote that is toxic to rush 2vs1 and he will ban us if we will do the same again.
    If you will try to warn other players to avoid some servers and admins on steam forum, you will get BAN!!! Reason? QUOTED "You need to stop this. Sure you have some personal vandetta with some server admin where you played and got boned. That's great. Don't poison our forum with the crap"

    AVOID THIS GAME AND DAMMED STEAM FAR AWAY!!!!
    Unless you want to play single player
    Here on of the most fresh embarrassing situation on server documented:
