Worth Getting?
With a Metacritic score of 20, and user reviews averaging 1 out of 10, I'm very... Weary... Of this game.

Is it worth getting?

depends on what kind of game u like

watch some gameplay video

personally the game runs, looks, sounds, plays great. not really had any problems.

inspite of all the negative reviews, articles, threads, posts the game has been since release and to this very date easily top 100 most played game on steam, around #50

if u do decide to get it just wait for sale since its often 50%-75% off

also keep in mind this game is b-rated game from b-rated indie studio, so no aaa title, still to this date they keep working on it making changes, fixes and adding new stuff... so its a work in progress and much has changed since it was first released.

its not very good. if you have your own server its fun but there are a ton of hackers in it

This game is definately worth it! Super fun and its only $15... hackers are going away fast each day! they all end up on here crying that they dont know why they got banned...

true its the best when you have someone to play with you. so you have at least one person you can trust

there are great many free private servers where u can play without having to worry about hackers cause there is an admin to get rid of problem players

plus this game has both punkbuster and fairfight anticheat the same thing industry giants like ea use to protect their multibillion dollar franchises

I have it and it has def improved,it's not great but I keep going back into it so it must have something.I haven't done that many hours yet but there are more loot spawns, but the character is still a bit stiff and clunky and that does let it down for me.

If you want some kind of experience where at the very sound of a stick breaking under someone´s else foot scares you, then this is your game.
You are in a world where EVERYTHING is hostile, and where is strange to find friendly people. If you have a group, trust in them. Everyone else is a very potential enemy.
Here, if you hear a gunshot, thats a problem. If the gunshot was not against you, then you have a second chance to run and hide, or to hide and stalk.

There are cheaters. We will not deny it. But fortunately the devs ban people everyday, and that people cant ever play again with that steam account, so thats money they lose and $15 per time is not very encouraging about the cheating.

Most of the game is the looting and avoiding/killing zombies that roam here and there in the streets of the ruined and poor towns. Finding food, meds, and weapons is most of the game time. Always with fear, always covering urself.
And the funny part (for some players, most of them at least) is to hunt and being hunted with that resources, or for that resources.

Little is lost. Most things are recycled. You lose something at someone´s hands, and that person will keep it... Till he or she dies at someone else´s hands. And the cycle goes.

As a curious fact, you can also leave messages in the map with the Time Capsules. Some kind of capsules where you can place a note, wrote by urself, and it will stay there till... The map is erased because a new map is introduced to the game. Otherwise, it will stay forever.

For a more unbiased answer to your question, just Google "War Z Game". The top search results will tell you everything you need to know.

yeah sure all the reviews, articles, threads, posts are horrible. all based on stuff that happened well over a year ago. lots of old reviews. articles, threads, posts...

inspite of it all, this game has been for over a year since released and to this datem one of steam most played game. easily top 100, around #50

so im not sure what you get from reading old reviews, watching old videos. ect and unbiased. well that is like lol cause every human has a bias there is not such thing. other than to report some numbers and not try to spin them...

over year top 100 around #50 there is your unbiased. numbers. math. everything else is words that can be twisted as needed.

Well, I'll keep my eye on it then. If it ever hits %75 off, someone toss me a comment on here.

Till then, SMOKIN ERRY DAY

Watched em. Player animation looks kinda clunky, but it's cheaper than DayZ. I've been wanting to get into the genre for a while.
