So, basically, should I just get Arma2/DayZ?
I've been reading a lot about both this title and Day Z, checking out reviews and videos, etc. Essentially, what I gather is that The War Z is a complete moneygrab, is inferior to Day Z in every way imaginable, and was involved in a PR nightmare when the developers made promises they never delivered on in order to boost sales of their piece of garbage.

Aside from the posts from the fanboys around here, I've really not read much in the way of positive feedback on this title. I enjoy the idea behind this kind of game, but everything seems to indicate that my money is better spent on Day Z.

The point of all of this is that I don't want to waste my money. So fanboy answers aside, is this game really worth it? If you had your money back and you could choose between this game and Day Z, which would you choose and why?

Yes, get Day Z...

You will not regret it.

Ant experienced gamer will tell you the same, I have played both and normally find myself saying good things about games that are crap, but with this one, the only good thing I can say is... Wait... No forget it theres nothing good to say.

Thanks for the info.. It's good hearing from someone who's seen both sides of it. If you don't mind my asking, I've basically heard either "this game is bad"/"no it isn't" or "the devs are bad"/"no they aren't", without much substance there. If you had to pick one or two things about Day Z that you specifically find better than this game, what would that be?

The graphics.
The stability.
The guns.
The sounds.
The gameplay.
The game engine.
The atmosphere.
The game mechanics.


Basically, what you see in War Z is far surpassed by Day Z.

And Day Z is a MOD, where as War Z is made by "proffesional" (I use the term loosely) developers and yet the MOD is MILES better and much more thought out, War Z was rushed to bounce off the success of Day Z.

Also most bad things you hear about the game/devs ARE true. The community manager "Kewk" on forums is somewhat, uneducated on how to run the community, he will not allow freedom of speech and ALL members of the War Z forum who said FACTUAL bad things about the game, got banned INSTANTLY. Then he wondered why there was "lets hope Kewk and his family dies" groups when he had his car accident, I personally don't agree wth things like that but when you scam so many people, some are not going to be so happy, I for one am surprised their offices have not been attacked.

Dont get Arma 2 CO because standalone is coming out this year I think.Also imo I think the mod can be terrible at time with all of its bugs and unleasism(Shooting a guy 8 times with a makarov and he doesnt even flinch yet he hits me once with an axe and I instantly die)

I agree with Pvt Kia, I think at this point, I'd suggest just waiting for the Standalone version of DayZ to come out. I'm sure you can find another game to play to hold you off until then.

I just want to say kudos to you, Sir Bob Barker, for doing your research first to make sure you were making a good decision.

Hit some 8 times with a makarov and he doesn't die? Next time I advise actually HITTING the target

Get Arma 2 free or lite or whatever the free thing is that lets you play the base arma 2 experience. If you acclimate to the controls and don't hate them, get Day Z (or hold out for the standalone release this summer if you aren't in a hurry).

I've experienced that as well, I assume it was just a lag issue, but I feel like a lot of the cause and effect of actions in arma 2 is on a severe (and random as hell) delay.

Makarov got pitiful damage in the game. If you don't get headshot, it can take 14 bullets to drop full health player.

Thanks so far for your input, everyone! I might just wait for the standalone, but I might take the plunge right now.. That's another decision to make, I just wanted to get some info on this beforehand because I'd heard a lot of negative without being sure whether or not it was actually a decent game getting a bad rap because of bad PR, you know?

Thanks again to everyone! :)

It's not a decent a game getting bad ratings, it's a♥♥♥♥♥♥game getting the reviews it deserves.

Also I would wait for the SA also. (Day Z I mean)
