Should I buy it or not?
Should I buy it? People have been saying that this game is getting better since the game was released. So I just wanted to ask everyone if I should buy this game or not?

Up to you, But read all the threads about its history before you do!

Also this game is run on Microtransactions and a lot of kids hack/cheat.

Still searching around trying to see how this game is, so far it seems like it is bad.

You pay to win and the hacking. Oh god, the hacking.

The answer is clearly no. But even if this game is very awful. You will perhaps love it. It is one of the great mysteries of Life.

If you choose to buy it. Wait for a very low price. Because developpers of this game are known to make awful games like big rigs over the road racing.

it depends on what type of games you like

this is basically a melee suvival, explore, kill zombies one by one melee, loot. its not run and gun. little ammo.

its just one big map, no vehicles.

while the game does have a complex history, still many, including myself, find it fun on free private pve servers. ive not had any problems with the game. honestly plays, runs, looks and sounds great to me. and ive not had any problems with hackers since punkbuster added.

i would suggest watching some gameplay video

making sure that your computer exceeds the minimum requirements

get and run pbsvc.exe to make sure your box is clean of hacks/cracks

also this is not the kind of game where you want to hack, cheat, glitch and/or exploit bugs, because punkbuster or fairfight will flag you and if you are flagged enough times you will be banned.

also if u r still interested see front page for upcoming ommunity choice flash 75% off sale!

finally if u do get it hit the wiki and learn the map, what to do, where best to loot, what loot is best, where to find what loot, etc.

I got this game right before the name change and have loved it so far. Most of the people that talk ♥♥♥♥ about the game pre ordered it and got ripped of. But if your interested in the game I'd say get it. And I personally havnt seen or dealt with a single hacker yet and I have 60 or more hours in game so there's that
Brody Jul 14, 2013 @ 8:36pm 
Also it isn't pay to win I've never had to use the store and have tuns of weapons and supply's. and a word of advise the games really hard in the beginning until you learn how to play and were to get loot

The only reason which can push someone to buy this game is not a consequence of the content of the game. It's only the consequence of chance.

Avoid this game like the plague (like the...ZOMBIE plague....I made a funny..LAUGH!)

The game is glitchy, shallow, dull...the whole thing feels rushed. Because it was: They rushed this out to compete with DayZ as a way to try and snipe some sales from the fans of that mod who were too impatient for the DayZ standalone.

Then what do they do when they realize their game is getting horrible reviews across the board (and possibly also because of potential legal issues with the name being too close to World War Z)? They change the name of it without making any real announcements so that people who have heard how bad WarZ was may be duped into buying this "new" Infestation game instead.

Gameplay wise....you stand no chance, it's nothing but hackers and people who kill you on sight. Basically the aim of these games was to create living communities...some people being more righteous and helping others, others doing whatever it took to survive, and others simply being ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s and griefing people. But pretty much only the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s exist, the other two groups are few and far between. And even then...hackers galore.

I reiterate: This is a game who'se average score is about a 2/10 from most reviewers....I think I'd rather play Superman 64. At least that game is good for a few "WTF" moment laughs.

It's an awful game. If you want to play a survival zombie game, then play DayZ. It's better, but not by a long shot.

I think it's pretty fun. Me and my friends played it all day today. For $7 bucks I got 8 hrs already that I enjoyed. A movie at the theatre would cost me $10 for 2 hours in comparison.

I would recommend you to watch some streams :)
look after: Dakotaz, Summit1G and Zombie_Barricades on Twitch.tv

They play alot of pvp, but you still learn alot about the game. Not only the good sides but also be bad and not so good sides. Check it out! :)

It's alright
Not the best but I got the full package for $15 when it was on sale weeks ago
I'd just wait 'till it goes 75% off again
