    Just about every aspect of DayZ is in dire need of some degree of polish, however, if you persist (and you should) a deep and ultimately ingenious title lay underneath that places a premium on player-made stories. All the same be aware that in its current state, it will take a remarkable degree of patience to get that most from DayZ - such quantities that more than a few folk simply won't have.

    The catastrophic technical condition obscures the gaming experience enormously: glitches, bugs, poor sound mixing, zombies without hitbox make DayZ a nightmarish gaming experience that is hardly fun.

    DayZ is a complete and utter disaster on PS4. Not only is it profoundly outdated in 2019, it’s also technically inept. A horrendous frame rate brings the experience to a standstill on a worryingly consistent basis, while numerous bugs and glitches are a bewilderment. After taking five years to release, we can’t help but feel like this was an outright waste of everyone’s time.

    Dated, buggy, and irredeemably wearisome, DayZ on PS4 offers an experience as empty and uninteresting as Chernarus itself that was certainly not worth waiting nearly half a decade for.

    DayZ has a rich history, a long lineage of war stories and strange survivor tales that have drawn thousands down its rabbit hole, but its reality is very different. There’s nothing here but a dull, vacuous wasteland, devoid of character and relying solely on players to make their own fun.

    It's unbelievable that this broken mess of a game appears on the PlayStation Network in this basically unplayable state. It's worse if you consider the steep asking price. Steer clear.

    I had low hopes for this game, but i had nothing better to do so i installed it. Don't regret it, it is a really good experience. TheI had low hopes for this game, but i had nothing better to do so i installed it. Don't regret it, it is a really good experience. The interactions in this game are interesting, people are unpredictable, and you never know what will happen if you interact with them, they could kill on sight, team up but then betray you. Run away, or you could become friends with them. It is a very intense survival game, one little choice could determine if you die or live. And i will say, there is some truth to the points tat the graphics are really bad, and the frame rate drops all the time. And that happens every now and then, but not often. Usually my game runs smooth as can be, but it can be a real pain when you lag out or your frame rate drops low. And yes, the loot can be stupid sometimes, sometimes i go into a town and all i find is clothes. But sometimes i find good **** and that pays off. So, if you are looking for a good game, this isn't a bad choice. Expand

Technically it does fall short in graphics, frame rates, etc. Experience wise, it has a wide open set of opportunities. I have poured hours upon hours gathering stories and events that have left me laughing, sweating, and even seconds away from a heart attack. I wouldn't even recommend this game to the average gamer, nor would I claim it is the best game out there, worth the cost. I cannot deny I am having g fun, but I know it is limited to players like me and my crew. Expand

Playing on the PS4 Pro, it constantly has frame rate drops and screen lock ups. the inventory is not optimized for consoles and it gets irritating after a while.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The better you get at the game, the worse it gets. Incredibly unreliable, for example, I spent three days looting up, got into a fight with a zombie which are very easy to kill, game froze, lost everything. We can sit here all day bringing up the endless bugs and glitches that riddle and writh throughout dayz, but we won't, because this game is not worth the time. Save your money, or make a better purchase. All this game is going to do, is piss you off. Expand

It's terrible! You walk, eat, maybe find a human after walking around and then die or fight them off. The game is laggy, **** in quality, and overall boring as all hell. The price of the game is a slap in the face. Expand
