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 got this game as part of the Playstation Black Friday sale, it was on sale for a whopping $5. I can let you know that I have currently spentI got this game as part of the Playstation Black Friday sale, it was on sale for a whopping $5. I can let you know that I have currently spent around 15 hours in game and am thoroughly enjoying myself. The graphics are bad compared to other games, but the customization in game makes it all worth it. Follows they Minecraft style of bad graphics but let you build anything. I like survival games, also enjoyed Ark, this is a great take on the horror style. The largest part of this game is exploring the world and seeing what you find, thus far I have encountered Nurse zombies which I was strangely attracted too, biker zombies wearing a helmet so they are very tough, and Giant Lumberjack zombies who were surprisingly sneaky. Progression is hard but fair, there is ample grinding in this game, and once you've think you are set up here comes a horde to destroy and you run the risk of starting over. Have encountered some glitches where some zombies get stuck on rocks, spawn on a ceiling type of thing it never ruined the experience. Overall if you don't mind games that require grinding, like the zombie experience aka horror, and don't want to be handcuffed by other games crafting mechanics this is a great game for you. Expand

    Este juego es una combinación entre minecraft y no man sky en un mundo lleno de zombies, debe conseguir recursos para construir perímetros,Este juego es una combinación entre minecraft y no man sky en un mundo lleno de zombies, debe conseguir recursos para construir perímetros, resguardarte, cocinar, limpiar el agua, crear trajes y sobrevivir a la noche, este juego realmente vale la pena si tienes a alguien con quien jugar, las posibilidades son muchas y la obtención de recursos puede ser muy divertida, pero al no contar con objetivos propios, o que debes hacer puede que se te vuelva muy monótono.
    Puedes construir un imperio, como el de Negan The walking dead, jugar solo y obtener recursos, o meterte en mundos ajenos y robar a los demás jugadores, ud escoge, pero el juego no vale más de 30 dólares.

    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.

    Great concpet terrible execution. I wish time would be put into development before slapping some unfinished game down. Also it runs horriblyGreat concpet terrible execution. I wish time would be put into development before slapping some unfinished game down. Also it runs horribly on PS4 on my PC I average 70-80 even with High Specs. There is potential in the game. However it's up to the developers to reach that standing. Expand
