Bad Rep = No Buy
When the "Only Positive" responses and reviews on steam say how bad this game is, you know something is up.

At first, I thought this looked intresting, but now reading those reviews...

the bad rep, in a sense, come a lot from guys who were banned.
And too, the way devs took time to make this game amazing.
But now, it s a great game !

To be fair the game was pretty bad on release, it's improved a lot now. The developers have been making real progress and they've addressed a lot of the old issues the game had. And one of the worst members of the team just left recently which hopefully will make a difference with the PR.

I'd say give it a go if you're interested in this type of genre. Just keep in mind the players in game are all pretty much scumbags so don't expect any helpful people. Otherwise I suppose you should go with DayZ, IMO this is more polished.

Same as so many devs but ppl tend to forgive and forget(Remmember "Gothic3&4") so give it time ppl will shift their hate like always. But could be interesting to do some indepthed research into why ppl "hate/troll/flame".

hate is an irrational emotional response (mid lob) not based on facts that clouds (shutdown off) the rational part of the mind (frontal lob) that is why it dont make any sense when you see it play out and thus its inappropriate response.

Over 1000 hours playing this game with no major issues.
Give it a try and see for yourself if you like it.

Most of the reviews mention bugs/glitches and problems that have already been solved.
Like there is a proper anti cheat now so most of the hackers are banned ( there are still a few blantant hackers but not as bad as before ) and there is a new graphics engine, cars ready to be implemented( are being tested by players right now ), strongolds etc.
I think you should give the game a go besides it is not THAT expensive.

good point the reviews, metascore, and the complaints people voisterously repeat are like over a year old... and do not represent the state of the game at this point with them having put over a year worth of continuous development making fixed, changed and adding features. all of which can be seen by going here and checking out the many

You are joking right? I just got off a stronghold server that I was on for only 10 minutes and saw two no clipping/ super jumpers in that 10 minutes going into the town only to have a 3rd (or maybe it was one of the first two) after miraculously getting into town without getting aimbotted come in behind me in the post office through a wall and instant kill me with a flashlight.

The cheating is worse than ever.

Still not as bad as release.

If you play on privately owned servers the hacking isn't that bad, it's the public ones that have issues.

I doubt that WarZ (or Infestation or whatever) would be polished to my satisfaction. The only positive feedback on this game was one single word: "Awesome". It didn't explain why it was awesome, just the word awesome. I'd rather get a already well polished game with a company I can trust more for a bit of extra cash than this. No offence to you, of course: If you like the game, that's fine, I just don't trust these guys enough to buy their product. They will have to earn that trust back.

It also isn't helping that there isn't ONE positive review. I expect a balance of both positive and negitive.

well if u just go by what others say then cya have fun may i suggest if u r interest in this gendre dayz, and enjoy...

but if u just go by bunch of negative reviews u are ignoring all the players that have easily made this one of the top most played games on steam for over a year now...

easily top 100, around top 50 since released...

is it aaa polished, nope never claimed to be, its b-rated game from tiny indie company with about a handful of employees who cant buy good reviews and dont censor bad ones in this place like others do. just go to some other forums and create a post like this and soon it will be locked or deleted... nothing but happy campers at ea forums, and even dayz forums is moderated by the developers. here they are to busy working on the game to bother, then their own forums are often overrunned cause they are too busy to moderate or at times even handle the load of support tickets from people asking why does this game not run on my apple 2e connected to the internet using two old rusty cans and a string or why was i banned for cheating the people who sold me the hack told me that punkbuster would not catch me... so when u have handful of employees and well over 1M customers... many of them not adults and you dont censor u end up getting lots of negative reviews. see how many negative posts in simcity 2013 forum.. u wont find none since they dont stay more than a minute before ea cleans them up.. so much for aaa titles and glowing reviews...

still its been top 50 on steam inspite of all the negative reviews, articles and posts... people cant stop playing it loads of fun, even many of those very members who write nothing but bad reviews are so addicted to it they cant stop playing it.

you want posished wait for major studio with the resources and talent to create one... and prepare to pay $60... and for that you wont get much more than this if even this...

and there are a lot of positive reviews, certainly more than one. they just get drowned out by all the people posting its a scam, the developers are liars and the things is nothing more than a money grab most of which have not played the game for more than an hour, many less than an hour...

There are positive reviews, just not on the front page. People have so much hate built up from this game's developers that even if it were awesome people would hate it. I don't know what your expectations are, but if you were looking for a survival mmo-zombie game then this and DayZ are your main choices, and personally DayZ is just too sim-like with the mod, controls are stiff, animations are bad, and there's too many things to worry about/do, it can be a chore. WarZ has a simple clean UI and in general is just easier to jump into than DayZ. If you wanted a more complicated micromanagement type game then DayZ is the game you want.
