    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 Not only is it profoundly outdated in 2019, it’s also technically inept.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 honestly loved the story of the game it wasn't the best like RDR2 or God of War even though those games had flaws of their own. Of courseI honestly loved the story of the game it wasn't the best like RDR2 or God of War even though those games had flaws of their own. Of course this game isn't perfect but no game is. I had a few frame issues it would be fine then it would drop some of the side missions feel repetitive but the main story is honestly a breath of fresh air even for a zombie (my opinion). I really hope this game gets a sequel down the line and i hope this post helps you :) 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
