You’re dropped into a harsh environment with almost nothing – not even clothes on your back. Through scavenging, crafting, and hunting, you’ll eventually put together the basic items you’ll need to live. You’ll have to deal with cold, heat, hunger and thirst, and there are wild animals that see you as prey. But that’s not the worst, because you’re not alone — the undead wander all around you. Slow and relatively easy to avoid by day, at night they become merciless, fast-moving killers, hungry for your flesh. Expand

    7 Days to Die is a lo-fi, budget survival-horror sandbox that surprisingly breathes some new life into the tired zombie template. It’s a powerful example of how a game, even when executed without the technical wizardry of big AAA publishers, can become a canvas for your own personal stories. It’s arrestingly compelling and, in the right hands, infinitely replayable. It’s a diamond in the zombie-infested rough.

    7 Days to Die has a lot to offer for the zombie genre but hides beneath glitches, bugs and bad graphics.

    It's an enormous game, but a bit of a shambles. [Sept 2016, p.103]

    7 Days to Die is a horrible porting of a game that could be appreciable on PC. The good crafting and building system doesn't justify the horrible combat system, the bad animation and the old style graphic; there are also bugs everywhere. Maybe it could be good for you, but only if you are blind.

    Right now, 7 Days To Die is an extremely shoddy release on the PS4. Hardcore fans who love crafting and survival games may find a potential time sink here, but I find it hard to recommend this title to anyone else just looking for a game to occupy themselves with during this summer drought. Don’t Starve is available on PS4. Try that one instead.

    Even three months and numerous patches after release, it’s clear that this project is nowhere near complete.Worse, the developers are clearly prioritizing the more successful PC version over this compromised port job. Console-owning fans of the survival genre may find something to enjoy in 7 Days To Die, but my advice is to steer clear all the same.

    7 Days To Die is a retail release of an alpha build of an Early Access game, and a downright scummy thing for Telltale to market as a finished product.

I walked in the store and perused for a while. Was in a dilemma between dynasty warriors 10 and this game 7 days to die. It had horrible raitings from online bc of bugs.

    This game is amazing. The way the detail in every part of the game makes so much sense. I started out in the desert. I found this house and it took me a while to figure out how to get yucca juice but then eventually started getting better, tracking airdrops, and planning ahead to make sure that i would survive to the next day. Once i figured out how to build storage containers that changed everything. I thought i was pretty badass in the desert and then figured out that there was a much LARGER population of zombies next door. Fortunately it took me a while to reach the next sector or time zone of the map. The game is very detailed and I havent experienced any bugs and im prettty sure they patched it. You really have to play it and try it, very adddicting because of the open world and anthing can be resourced. I feel as if its minecraft with zombies and the graphics are better. I dont know what else to say but this was an incredible find at a random gamestop and im happy i chose to buy it.

I have watched a couple of videos of this game on YouTube and I would have to say that this game looks pretty good even though the game might not be as good as other Zombie games that has parkour like Dying Light but the fact is 7 Days to Die is pretty impressive. I am also very skeptical because I have played a little of Minecraft but not much it to be totally invested in it but this game just might appeal to my taste a lot better than Minecraft. Definitely going to try this game out this evening when I get home from work. Can't wait!! Expand

Especially if you have friends or a girlfriend to play with. Some of the things this game does right is co-op, crafting, surviving and exploring. From the get go this game looks very much like minecraft, but not with pixel graphics. The framerate drops often if you play on splitscreen, but after a while you won`t notice it. You can decide if it is a good thing or not. If you find the game for 15 or 20 bucks or have someone to play with I recommend it. Expand

    Game play - 8/10 Game play if quite good, matching the overall feel to the game.

    Crafting - 5/10 Crafting could be better, it is what it is though.

    Graphics- 4/10 This is running on a PS4 graphics should be better.

    Enemy's - 6/10 Enemy's are boring to look at but once night rolls around a survival horror
    aspect comes into play

    Pretty good game overhaul. If you like minecraft you will most likely enjoy this game. Graphics could be 10 times better but you don't really realize it so much once you play it for a few hours.
    Role play is important for this title.

    Literally unplayable, not worth a dollar.
    Constant framerate issues, below 25 FPS at all times I would say, lame graphics, lame gameplay,
