My Unbiased Review of dayz
Alright i was not a big fan of the engine on arma 2 so i didn't play dayz much but i wanted DayZ standalone Really bad and i grabbed it the first day it came out and i did not enjoy it at all here's why.

I didn't like the movement such as bobble head (Which they had fixed) Now its more enjoyable to play. But Battle logging is a big issue because i love pvp which makes the game not enjoyable. Now about the Zombies... as we all know they are broken as all hell and if you are lucky you probobly never even saw a damn zombie, they walk through walls like they own the place like come on you don't release a damn game if zombies are this bad.... they released the game so we the buyers beta tester's their broken game so they don't have to spend all the millions of $$$$$$$$$$ they made off of us.... But still it is a good game hopefully in a few years it will be perfect. The last thing i said goes with item spawning too You should NOT have to restart your server to get the items to respawn this is freaking ridiculous.....


Would i recommend this to a friend? No/Yes It's a good game but bad developers....

alpha is alpha, you are ♥♥♥♥♥ing about stuff that is already being worked on lol. I give this thread 2/10

Erm... how can the players of this early access game be beta testers when the game is still in alpha stage? Hmmm...
draigan Dec 22, 2013 @ 7:37am 
yeah while those issues might be annoying thats the whole point of an alpha if you dont want to put up with unfinished/bugged content you dont buy it until its in a more finished state. the developers couldn't have made the state of the game any clearer so you really only have yourself to blame

The irony of you guys calling everyone trolls while posting one-line ad-hominem riddled posts yourselves.

The white-knight fanboys are the biggest trolls on here.

Well you know I only ask because half his complaints are strictly because the implications have not been sorted into the game and which do exist in the mod variant and some of the other complaints are centered around him just being ignorant of a settings menu...
But you know, fanboying it up on my fanboy forums. Because I like things, that are nice.

An opinion based on 2.4 hours of gameplay. I don't even.

So far it's not that super great. I can agree with that on how the game was poorly developed so far. But an Alpha is an Alpha. I'm a patient person when it comes to getting games because i've waited for DayZ for awhile. I'm not a hardcore fanboy but I do sure have hopes for this game in the future, I think it'll be great. Until then, good luck and hope things go well for you.

you have played 62 hours of rust, you have no idea what a good game is

for an alpha, this game is actually quite good. The engine is a bit uncommon for those used to e.g. frostbite or unreal, but its more habit than anything else. (in fact, I think this one is "slower" than others, and that has its advantages as well for non-nerd players who won't spent 23h a day perfecting their aim and shooting).

still, I don't think this game will be a success in the long run for different reasons. Namely the investment of time versus the speed of loss is too big. As a mod, the scope was small enough to be a success, but now they are going solo they'll find the market of players they are drilling into won't be .... dedicated/ un-mainstream .... enough to play this.

To put it poetically, this game is so KOS on new talents whom need to look for a (too) long time before they can defend themselves.... it will kill itself....
