Latest review on metacritic
"The War Z is plagued by too many mistakes, but the developers seem to be unprofessional. I've watched the development of the game for too long now - without realizing improvement."

"And then there are the aforementioned hackers who fly by us or want us to do with a shot of three hundred yards away. After the umpteenth death we got tired, we again create a new character. Here's are theoretically an anti-cheat system. That is, appropriately, "Fair Fight". We say "theoretically" because reports about blocked accounts accumulate whose owners have never cheated - and at the same time it gives players who admit openly that they cheat, and yet are still active. In short, "Fair Fight" is about as fair as a boxing match between Vitali Klitschko and Maya the Bee."

Rating: 3.9

Translation: 3 would be too harsh so here's a 3.9 while we ignore the fact that you ripped your entire concept off of DayZ.

Almost a 4, pretty generous really.

3.9 is far too generous.

I hope they mean 3.9 out of 100

Highest score yet. Hammerpoint must be really happy.

3.9 is too objective

3.9 is too number-y

speaks for itself really but i do like how 255 players give positive reviews where as 44 give mixed reviews but 2147 give it bad reviews. It has gone up by 0.1 points since i looked at it last though so i erm... Guess that's something.

It just beg's the question, how can a handful of loyal players/consumers still support this and call people Day Z lovers, War Z haters, biased reviews (by almost every legitimate review magazine on the face of the globe, even IGN say the games aweful) in face of such over whelming odds and evidence.

I still like the game AND think a 3/10 is not only a fair review, but the score I would give the game myself. It ISN'T good, but it IS a fun and unique gameplay experience I was glad to have.

It's sad to see a game score a pathetic 3.9 review and actually disagree and believe it should be lower.

While I get that you are kidding fanboys have seriously thrown at out with the other reviews when the reviews were discussed. It's sad that people can be so detatched to reality that they think there would be some global gaming review conspiracy and that even professionals who dislikes this games must be bias and must like DayZ.

I find it very hard to rate this game tbh. I mean I luv the new genre/concept of the game it's very refreshing and exciting which means I enjoy the game alot but at the same time it's released with barely any content. I would rate it 9/10 for fun factor and 4/10 for nowhere near fulfilling it's potential, offering very little features and being very much unfinished.
