I like the game and I recommend. If you have any questions about the game just post it here and I will answer.

I havent played Rust so I can't compare the two.
I enjoy the game. It has its flaws but it is still an entertaining way to pass the time. It is made more fun if you find people to get on voice chat with and run together.

depends on what kinds of games u like

just go watch some game play video lots of it

and yes if u like this kind of game this one is loads of fun and if u have the hardware it plays, runs, looks, sounds great not problems to really speak of

keep in mind this is indie game u will not be getting the polish of aaa game, but u will quickly not see those things if u see them at all cause u will be having too much fun

this game is sort of like easy version of dayz for people who like dayz but dont want a military simulator getting in the way so animations, movement, controls, ect work like regular pc game not military simulator

and its well worth the price when on sale and its often on sale so wait for upcoming sale ;)

also check out unturned if u can overlocked the graphic difference its about the best in the genre other than that one this is...

i like indie survival games , i played rust , dayz. but dayz is so terribly buggy and difficult. i just want a simple survival shooter game and i thought that infestation was that. is that true?

It sounds like this game is what you are looking for then.
ISS and DayZ are very similar games. They take the same basic concept (Zombie Shooter in an Open World PvP enviornment where you need to scavenge for food/water and items to live) but have different focus from each other. DayZ is more focused on military simulation realism, and ISS is more focused on accessable quick action.

The game has issues, its not perfect. There are bugs (mostly minor), cheaters, you get lag spikes from time to time, slow load in times, and if you enjoy the game you will be constantly flamed and attacked on the forums for it. All in all I have gotten much more than my moneys worth of enjoyment out of it.

If you want cheaters on every server
There are cheaters in the game yes, though they tend to stay on high population servers. And again if you can show me even a single FPS that doesnt have cheaters then your point might be valid. That problem is no worse in ISS than it is in the majority of FPS games.

lag, disconnection issues,
Both do occur from time to time, though most of the time disconects are the result of a known bug and are not "random" disconects. That being said it's hard to say "oh this disconnect isnt that bad because it was the result of a bug and not just random", so that isn't a defense of the issue just an explanation of it.

pay to win, market where you can buy most items in the game,
So far from the truth yet so often said that people seem to believe it. What you can buy (food, meds, ammo etc) can be bought with in game dollars. You can't buy guns at all. And you can find everything in the game with even a little bit of patience. The market is pretty much irrelevant, and this game is not even close to pay to win.

shi.tty developers shi.tty game, devs lying to the communty all the time,
Whatever. The devs lied and mislead when the game was released. They suffered for it. Since then they have continued to add into the game everything they promised but that was not there on release (Cars, Super Zombies, Stronghold Servers, new maps, crafting). Personally I feel like the whole "devs" argument is the weakest one you haters have against the game but it is one of the most commonly made arguments. I play games for the game, not because of the Devs.

no anti cheat, random bans,
Both are untrue. There is an anti-cheat, Fairfight. If it is not one you like, or you think there are better ones then make that argument, but lieing and saying it isnt there at all is... well its a lie. As for "random bans" I don't believe it, prove it. You see people on the forums saying they were banned for no reason all of the time, yes that is true. But that is exactly what you would expect to hear from a cheater, a total lack of any ability to take personal responsibility, so why would you expect them to come on the forums and do anything except try to shift responsibility (for their getting banned) and focus onto someone other than themself?

you can get banned for walking nuff said
Yup, that pure lie is enough to be said out of you. I mean seriously, there are valid points that can be made against the game without the need to blatantly lie to try and make it sound bad. And yet the majority of the haters jump straight to lies, exagurations, and bringing up long ago fixed issues.

@Quix Pretty good post i disagree with 2 things though.

1 The bad Dev team and company with a history of lying and really not very good at there job is a big part of why this game ain't a great game but just an ok one. Also people keep backing companys and DEVs that pull this kind of stuff there going to keep doing it because they know people will buy there product anyways.

2. Random bans do happen i seen a few post about people saying they got banned for no reason and later got there account back because they where banned for no reason. Is this the majorty no not even close most are like you said hacker's crying they got banned for no reason but it does happen random false bans do happen but yes rarely.

Other then that can you get your moneys worth of enjoyment out of it yes could it of been a lot better of a game yes. If they would not be so lazy or maybe they just lack the knowledge to fix bugs that plaged this game from day one would be a big improvement. Also if they would finsh things they start would also be a big improvement for the game. Don't hold your breath on any of that though all in all it's worth what i paid for it i got it on sale though. I'll also contuine to play it off and on till some of the upcoming game like this are released then i'll probley say my goodbyes and move on from it since it seem like it hit a stale point and not going anywhere futher then where it is now.

Fair enough Snake on the Dev point. Some people get all excited about "social justice" type issues (like when someone makes a misogynistic facebook post and everyone jumps on a bandwaggon to attack them), and thats kind of how I see this point. I just can't get behind it.

I mean if the developers of Shadow of the Colassus were shady SOBs it wouldnt change the fact that it was one of the most enjoyable and unique games I've ever played. If the developers of Red Dead Redemption sacrificed orphans to make more money it wouldnt change the fact that it is a beauty of a game. Or if the developers of Ultima Online released a buggy unfinished and flawed game (which they did) it wouldnt change the fact that I've never had as much fun in another game before or since or that it spawned a whole new genre of video games.

Now let me be clear, I am not saying that ISS is anywhere near the caliber of those games. Not in the same ballpark, not even the same sport. All I'm saying is that *TO ME* the Devs don't change whether I enjoy a game or not, and I enjoy this game despite the Devs. Other people can have a different opinion on that and that is perfectly fine.
Just like you could have the greatest, most honest, best intentioned Dev team in the world who listen to everything players want and do everything right but if they release a game that isn't fun then I dont care how good or morally upright they are, all I care about is the experience of the game.

You'll get no argument from me that when this was released the Devs lied, mislabled, and did all kinds of shady things including releasing the game missing many features they promised would be in the release. But slowly over time those things have been added (despite the near constant wave of haters yelling that" it would never happen" and the "Devs are going to close the servers in a month or two and run off with the cash" and how everyone who supported the game would be proven so wrong).

"keep in mind this is indie game u will not be getting the polish of aaa game"

Boy thats an understatment if i ever heard one. And about fun? if your not getting hacked, the game crashing or freezing or other players killing on sight, I guess you could call it fun.

Pay to win is debatable. It completely DOES fall into a great many people's definition of it, so if it falls into yours you're definitely right about it.

I keep seeing "indie" game for this... WTF are people using for that designation? This game started with millions of dollars, had a publisher behind them, and had a team of 30+ people. So what are people using to say it's indie? Because 'the devs say so' to defend their poor work?
PitViper Sep 7, 2014 @ 4:07pm 
@destrierr I don't think you can even blame that one on the DEVs i could be wrong but pretty sure it was just a few player's that came up with that line about the indie company. The same player's that knock others for coming here and making stuff up. Yet they throw out the same garbage or try to bury the facts in a page long rant about mostly nothing. Now yeah i did get my money worth out of the game and did come back to playing it. Still a lot of things bug me about it that they still have not fixed and i don't think they ever will. So i guess i just get my fix here till some upcoming games get released then i'll probley be saying my goodbyes to this one forever.

They claimed it in the beginning and it's listed in the indie category here on Steam.

But yeah, people like to throw it around for this game, one person in particular, but that's why I'm asking. What the hell are they using as criteria for 'indie'?

The game can be fun, just keep in mind that the graphics are mostly bad, and i am not sure if the game as the current price that the game stands at is worth buying then other zombie survival games that are actualy better.

but short awnser the game it self can be fun.
