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.

    All that said i had a blast playing this with my friend on split-screen! We couldn't stop playing before 03.00 am (now). The fear of zombies and animals, deep crafting, survival. Just love it!

    great for a local co op game in terms of being unique, and having lots of stuff to build ect. However, I dont think I have ever played agreat for a local co op game in terms of being unique, and having lots of stuff to build ect. However, I dont think I have ever played a fully released game that felt so bare bones and unfinished, the graphics are awful, the game is buggy, the hit detection and animation is awful, and the the actual progress of the game barely exists. There is very little to look forward to, or even accomplish for that matter, making teh best parts of this game simply level grinding and messing around. Technically, this game should be about a 4/10 maybe even lower, but i enjoyed it for its local co op and messing around preferences. Expand

This does work and initiates split screen mode.

    Now there is a lot a fun to be had in the game itself playing with friends. The graphics are bad. It can be laggy sometimes. The UI is horrendous. Zombies are incredibly powerful and tough to kill. However, with all that and more the base game here is something that will be enjoyable with a friend. Building and trying to survive together is fun. Just know this game has it problems and it is hard. Otherwise enjoy.

    Overall (for people who dont like to read) If you can look past the graphics slightly wonky combat and frames (which are set to be fixed) itsOverall (for people who dont like to read) If you can look past the graphics slightly wonky combat and frames (which are set to be fixed) its a very fun horror game, but if you cant stand the combat but can stand the graphics i would recommend the pc version.

    Now a detailed review for people who do like reading.

    Graphics: 2/10 For a graphics guru they are horrible, for a casual gamer graphics don't matter.

    Gameplay: 0.5/10 The stunned feature is extremely annoying with the wonky and glitchy combat, and i dont think you would be stunned by a slam from a brain dead rotting walking corpse.

    Price: 1/10 Really not worth 30$ at the point its at, probably, i would say 15$ is more reasonable

    Playtime: 6/10 You are easily able to put many many many hours into this game if you can deal with the problems listed above.

    Recommendable: Not at all right now, i would just get the pc version for cheaper.

    Constant framerate issues, below 25 FPS at all times I would say, lame graphics, lame gameplay,
