Why you should NOT buy or play War Z
READ THIS FIRST! - Its hard to type all this in order, so I just basically did what the game did. Puke on a plate and call it dinner.

First off, the game has so many hackers it makes the game literally unfair. Second, you get hit 4 times by zombies and your dead, bandages do not heal you fully. The game is so hard to survive to where when your crawling around to avoid detection, you crawl so slow that magically zombies will "WALK" over you and then notice you. This game is NOT better than Day Z. It is a clear copy of Day Z and the only thing better about it is its FPS mode and graphics. I do however like the armor and stuff related to that. But its hard to survive even with armor. Players on this game can be the biggest ******* about helping people. Never trust anyone, when they invite you to a group, they know your location and they just shoot you. When I got the game I expected getting a weapon. Not a flashlight that does so little damage to where your screwed if 2 zombies see you at once. When you sprint, EVERY DANG ZOMBIE IN THE AREA KNOWS WHERE YOU ARE. Something I did find that was cool is that they had rifles and pistols from the world war and things like that. But the fact the weapons are soo common is unrealistic. It doesnt make sense. This game is pay to win and should only be played if your rich. :) Also, when you buy a weapon with real life money. And you die. You just lost everything. Like seriously, this is prolly what you will be thinking "Wow I just bought a gun for 2 dollars what a deal!" Then you get killed by another player and then your thinking "Wow, I just wasted 2 dollars. And he got the gun for free." Also, FIX THE SPAWNS! What is the point in spawning in a safe zone all the time, Once I leave a player is just camping, and that is practically on every server. If your looking to buy the game. DONT, you will hate its guts, its a copy of Day Z basically. What I also dont like is when your crawling around and you dont notice a dead body near you (Its not dead man, its just not EVER) and it gets up and attracts all the other zombies. I can never get back to the safe city after I loot items even if im in an empty server, there is always someone who joins just to kill you. its not fun. I played the game around 30 - 40 minutes and was done with it, I was just done. They have so many patches, but they arent patching the important things! They are patching the melee weapons so they hit slower! WTF man. NO It already takes too long to kill a zombie with a melee weapon and now your taking speed from us? You are out of your dang mind! Now dont get me wrong, I loved Day Z and at first thought this was made by the same person. But sadly, I was horribly wrong, the creator of Day Z would of never made his loyal players suffer like this. If this doesnt convince you, maybe this will. The top player on the leaderboard for killing players has killed 910 players and the second is 889. That is too many, now I dont know about you, but those players have no life and most likely are hackers.. IT IS NOT WORTH $15.00. Ya know what? Scratch that, the game is so horrible, they should owe you money, the game should be -$15.00! There ya go, that woulda sumed up how much I dislike this game. ENJOY the CRAP GAME.


This game was not before Day Z and if you have played War Z you will clearly see that it is a copy of a mod. I mean come on. seriously? they have practically the same name and the creator of Day Z is making a stand alone game to blow War Z out of its stank water. Also, why do you think War Z was taken off steam? Yeah, cause it sucked that bad. Im suprised its back

Majority of the criticism is how the game is like dayz then you bash the mchanics dayz and the warz share. You didn't spawn with a weapon? people shoot you? You have to crawl? zombies take 4 hits to kill you? Bandages don't really heal? You never played DayZ in your life since it has the same exact formula. Nice try, but try not to vomit up everything you read on the internet.

Lets go over why all you said is wrong. 1st (You didnt spawn with a weapon) Actually you do on Day Z if the admin makes that so :) problem 1 solved. 2nd + 3rd (People shoot you? You have to crawl) Yeah people shoot you, but its hard to spawn kill since there are random spawns. And yeah you have to crawl, but not so slow that by the time you get across the street your already 50 years old. Problem 2 and 3 solved :) and 4 (Zombies take 4 hits to kill?) Actually no, depends. If you have a hatchet it takes 2 unless a headshot. ALL semi auto rifles take 1 shot to kill no matter where you hit. The only weapons that take 4 hits are the crowbars and pistols if you are really inaccurate. Problem 4 solved :) (Bandages dont really heal?) Your right they dont heal, they stop you from bleeding which is more relistic than healing, you have to find blood from blood packs so yeah, its more realistic than war z will ever be. Isnt it sad when a mod is better than a $15.00 game? :) I have the actual War Z game if you didnt notice before you actually posted so dont give me crap (try not to vomit up everything you read on the internet.) about a game that I have played and have disliked. K? :)

Read the "READ THIS FIRST!" and it will tell you why you cant understand :)

The fact that you think that mechanics that work in one game will automatically work in another shows that you have zero understanding of how game design works. Bandages not fully healing you in DayZ works because it actually takes a lot of hits for a zed to kill you, and the biggest threat to your health is bleeding. Spawning without a weapon works because people don't really camp the actual spawn points. Potentially unbalanced PvP works because it's difficult to locate players and you have to work to get the really good equipment. Hordes of zombies chasing you relentlessly works because with a little practice you can fake them out and escape in cities.

Any way are the servers up yet?

this game is awesome and emergency matemance thats why this game is good.

Wow there really are many things wrong with the OP.
I just want to point out the most glarring bit of this rant:
" I played the game around 30 - 40 minutes and was done with it, I was just done."
If you have only spent 30 - 40 minutes playing the game how can you really have an informed opinion on it? You haven't even gotten past the learning curve yet.

Does the game have problems? Yes, this is very true. But should you listen to someone who by their own admission can't possibly know what they are talking about? Nope.
There is a lot of hate for this game floating around, some of it is deserved some of it is not. But what it comes down to for me is that I still keep playing it and having fun.

Im only gonna reply to the first part, well if im already finding things that I massively dislike about the game, then I shouldnt even try to continue playing it. Also, have you seen any of the other people commenting on the game? They all say the same thing. This is what I KNOW not think. So don't give me crap. This game is a copy of Day Z I dont think I even needed to of said all what I did, just that. This game is horrible. Shouldnt of even been created. You cant win unless you pay with real money.

How can it be a copy of Day Z?
The game titled "Day Z" still isn't out, and a release date still hasn't been announced.
Sounds like another casual gamer who's used to COD or something complaining about the difficulty of a zombie survival game.
30 minutes isn't even enough time to get a good feel for any game.
Forrestero Apr 1, 2013 @ 7:48pm 
/\ This I have been playing most of the day and despite spending most of the day looking at the loading screen and getting blasted out of nowhere and eaten by zombies its my new favorite game.
Quix Apr 1, 2013 @ 7:49pm 
If you dislike the game within a short amount of time then no you shouldn't have to continue playing it. But you also should not make a post which attempts to make you sound like you have any real knowlege of the game.

"Also, have you seen any of the other people commenting on the game? They all say the same thing."
Obviously not, I am not saying the same thing you seem to claim that everyone is. And obviously your contention is wrong because a lot of people continue to play it.

Is this a copy of DayZ? Yup, pretty much the same games. I own both games. I spent 200 hours in DayZ and 120 hours so far in WarZ. So I know what I am saying when I say that I enjoy WarZ much more. Almost every aspect that WarZ and DayZ share in common is at least somewhat better pulled off in WarZ.

The only things Day Z has going for it
1.) Build on a military sim engine (designed for arma 2) meaning bullet droop, windage etc for realism <3

2.) Working Vehicles

i think the map is a little bigger too.

aside from that i agree, WarZ is currently better.
