So... I actually like the game.
And I don't work for Hammerpoint.

Why am I writing this? Because I hear people complaining about how bad it is that it takes 40 hits with a flashlight for a Zed or that you get instakilled when joining a game and so on and then calling it a horrible game.
You people don't get how the game works. Of course it takes 40 Hits to the stomach to kill a Zed. Ever tried hitting them over the head? And it's supposed to be hard to survive when you only have a flashlight on you.
And if you don't want to be spawn killed, don't log in next to the Campos supermarket or any other highly frequented areas.

What I like about the game:
It gives me the shivers when creeping up on a fellow survivor. It's tense. But compared to "That Other Zombie Survival Game", it's alot more casual. You don't have to log in every seven days or your tent/vehicle will be gone. You can just jump into a game and run around for an hour offing Zeds.

What i don't like about the game:
Yes, it has a long way to go. There are dozens of features not yet implemented that were promised at release. Like cars. I don't see vehicles appearing in the game for another couple of months. probably not until "TOZSG" is out. And the Steam release was a bad decision. Hammerpoint should at least have been honest and portrayed the state the game was in instead of using false advertising.

What I hope for the game:
To reach it's goals in terms of feature implementation and that it'll get another chance and a honest one when it's done (duke nukem forever reference there). Because in my opinion it does have potential.

Again it seems that someone wants to try and state an opinion without actually reading WHY people are complaining about the game in the first place.

The main issue has never been the development of the game (minus the deception of features that were non-existant), but rather Hammerpoint as a company who has engaged in unethical practices, including copyright infringements, stating customers were 'misreading' false information, and unlawful practices regarding refunds.

I think people knew the learning curve was going to be horrific, but then again, no tutorials were ever given to the 'new' playerbase, which is a feature I'd certainly like to see implemented to inform individuals to hit the head of zeds, and not the body, as well as the survival elements.

tl;dr - we don't like the game because of the actions of the developers/mods.
They shot themselves in the foot, even if they made the greatest game to even grace our pc's.

Gotta be careful. Your dealing with gamers with morals. They would rather pay for a ♥♥♥♥ty game with nice dev's then pay for a nice game with ♥♥♥♥ty dev's. And before anyone says, WarZ isn't a nice game, please name one standalone game of this genre that's better. TY

Just because this is the one nut standing out in a massive pile of sh i t that is the genre atm, doesn't make it acceptable or ok by any margin.
Your slanted view is not ok.

Hey I think osama bin laden was better than hitler cause he killed less. He is a good guy in the genre of mass killing ♥♥♥ hats.
NICE LOGIC JPATE YOU'RE WINNER!

The lack of competition doesnt mean WarZ is good.
By that same logic, if "Sally" had sex only once, and it was against her will... the ♥♥♥♥ was great sex.
Just because it was the only sex she had- doesn't mean she liked it.

And Yes the devs ♥♥♥♥ me off,
And yes, I believe (along with many) that WarZ is actually a terrible game. But what would all the professional reviewers and the vast majority of the general gaming public know? 22/100 metacritic score isn't THAT bad, is it?

Oh ♥♥♥♥, cool guy theolaf. Okay for one, If Sally had sex only once and SHE thought it was nice, when it actually was ♥♥♥♥, then yes it was nice to HER.

Who gives a ♥♥♥♥ about metacritic? Reviews are still opinions. And like ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s, everyone has one. This is the first standalone of this genre. Until another game comes out and gets reviewed, I don't give a 2 ♥♥♥♥♥ or a ♥♥♥♥ about the reviews.

If you don't like the game, why are you still trying to be cool hanging around the forums? Oh wait I just answered my own question.

Seriously that is the best argument you can bring to defend this game. This must be the most pathetic argument ever used to defend this "game".
Sorry but OP was doing a better job in defending the game than you...

Your almost as bad as cool guy. Okay I'll give you an easy one. Name a standalone game of this genre that is worse?

Yadda yadda yadda...

Someones' opinion on the game makes no difference, when compared to 99% of other games out there- completely objectively- it falls short. It is below average, sub par. Frankly, the game just doesnt meet the mark when it comes to quality of video games today. Sorry to break it to you, man... the game is bad. Period.
If you liked what Hitler did to the Jews, does that make it good? No. Bad is bad. Period. Dot. End of story.

And for someone who Doesn't care about others opinions- you sure do rage a whole heck of a lot when someones opinion differs from yours.

It is the fist "stand alone" Zombie survival fps/tps. Correct. Not sure why you care so much about that- or why that is the sole reason you get so butthurt about it- but to each their own.

I would figure someone who cares so much about the "Stand alone Zombie Survival FPS/TPS genre"- Would care about the quality of the titles within, and not just the quantity.

Actually yes I would rather invest my money into developers that actually care and try. Though your point is wrong, this game is both terrible with terrible devs. Also your last statement isn't logical. I am a terrible singer take my word for it. But just because I may be the only one willing to sing in the karaoke bar doesn't automatically make me a great singer because I have no one there to be compared to.

In-fact I created a genre of video-game back when I was in highschool. I called "hope ruse". The game was real simple. You have a character that can move around and two walls slowly close in and crush the player. I had friends play the game for hours trying to figure out how to survive. There was no way to survive however. They search over and over again begging me to tell them the secret that I never suggest even existed to survive. Each time they restarted they were always hopeful and determined to win just as I predicted they were rused into being hopeful. Eventually they all gave up and to this day none of them know it was a simple trick to mess with them, To my knowledge there was never a game existing of that nature before then and I cannot think of one now. So would you automatically claim that my gag game is somehow a "nice game" like you label WarZ? Or are you special pleading for WarZ and that your flawed logic only applies to it?

I hope the game shuts down. I also hope you get a full refund before that happens. I also hope that you learn to take all the information that's provided to you and use it to your advantage in order to save you some grief in the future.

The media and all the users on metacritic can't be wrong. This isn't a good game, it's a terrible game.

To be fair the users on metacritic can be touchy and vote 0 on a game simply because of one issue such as DRM. While I don't think it's unfair to speak against and even hurt the score of a game because of extreme cases of DRM like Diablo or SimCity's always online requirement they don't deserve a 0 for it.

The professional reviewers on the other hand have much more credability. Because if they didn't and had a reputation of scoring too high or too low against the real general opinon on games then they aren't going to be successful because no one will take them seriously.

I believe user scores dont factor in once a professional critic reviews. the 22/100 is based prely on professional reviewers. If it included peoppe, it would be closer to 5/100 or so.

So this is really the last straw you take on defending this game? A technicality? Really? There are browser based Zombie Survival MMOs you know that. Or will you just add more characteristics until in the end War Z will appear? This proves or disproves nothing.

But maybe let me ask you back: How many of your Friends could you convince with this single argument to buy this game, so you can play togehter?

Why does everyone like to tell stories? Okay to your first part, Yes, if you were the only singer of the night, you were the greatest singer of the night. Apparently also the worse too.

To your second part, Yes, out of all the "hope ruse" genre games, yours was the nicest.

Do you guys not understand this. You do not compare WoW to CoD. LoL to PlantsvsZombies.
Only thing you can compare it to is DayZ, and since DayZ is a mod, you can't.
