Review: IncGamers - Set it on fire/10
More focused on the shady and cynical conduct of the developer this one.

The War Z is not just a bad game. Bad games happen all the time. This is something far more insidious; a shameless attempt to cash-in on a popular trend with the minimum possible effort. It’s different from the regular band of clones, copies and derivations because most of those at least attempt to fashion a half-way decent game. This is a focused cash-grab, as plain as there ever has been.

...

The War Z’s development has been characterised by duplicity, amateurish customer relations, shoddy craftsmanship and basic design flaws. It’s an unfinished, bug-ridden shambles and the fact that substantial amounts of cash have already been funneled to the charlatans behind it is a crying shame.

...

1/10
If you see this game approach you, do not panic. Simply aim for the head, attempt a decapitation or set it on fire.

No surprise there. just as it will be no surprise when the fanboys come in this thread claiming the reviewer just like all others before him are DayZ fanboys without knowing anything of the reviewers. But a global conspiracy over WarZ in the gaming media somehow makes more sense to them than the game actually being terrible.

Insidious. LOL

I love the reviews for this game. This is going to be the most infamous game in history of video games...Possibly usurping Big Rigs or maybe even sharing the podium.

War Z should be rebranded as New Gamers Instructional Guide.

Patience let me explain. We all hear gaming terminologies yet have no idea what they look like in real practice.

1. Why is game hacking bad? Play War Z

2. Why is cheating and what are exploits? Play War Z

3. What is spawn camping? War Z

4. Whats server hoping mean? War Z

5. Why is good marketing important? See War Z

6. Why is good community relations even more important? See Kewk

7. Is it really that big a deal to release a game unfinished to be patched later? See War Z

8. What price gouging mean? See War Z and early adopters.

9. What are micro transactions? War Z

10. Whats F2P? Whats Pay To Win whats both mixed together? War Z

11. Whats a great game to add in the Idiots Guide To Bankruptcy?

12. Whats false advertising?

13. Why is math in school important? 100km 2 = 10km x 10km

14. Why is lying a bad thing?

15. What is karma?

16. Whats money laundering?

17. What are shell corporations?

18. What copyright infringement?

19. How not to apply for trademarks

20. Whats alpha? Whats beta?


Maybe everyone is being too hard on War Z. It could be a very useful tool for new gamers. Every possible bad thing in gaming ins in War Z. Its like a terminology mecca.

Never got why being mad is seen as bad on the internet.

I mean, which would you rather be: User987 the Mad, or User 987 the I Just Get These Headaches? ;)

You know what the sad thing is? People will still continue to defend this.
Skyforger Jan 22, 2013 @ 5:17am 
Indd there is a new one every few days, they come and defend for about 3 days to a week then either get banned or leave from hopefully realising the game is terrible.

It was that yeti dude for a while then he got banned, then we had this person that copy and pasted some drivel about "trolls" now we have some person called kuriso something.
