Any brief read of the multitude of reviews out there will show that the zombies are a joke in this zombie game, which is mostly about vigilante vs vigilante. If you actually play the game, it is mostly composed of griefing for the sake of griefing, PvP, or concern for your safety (grief just in case they were trying to grief you).
The UI, controls, etc. are horrendously bad. The graphics are total crap, and the animations are absolutely hysterical. Manipulation of the world is very limited (not even close to simulation or a do-anything style of gameplay) and other zombie survival games (ex. Project Zomboid) pull off the design idea infinitely better.
While I understand the IDEA of the game's design is a great IDEA, and the IDEA sounds like a blast- the game is nothing like the idea in any way. IMO, and in the opinion of thousands of players who wouldn't play this even if it is free, I don't understand the cult following it has massed.
Sure it isn't a large following, but it is indeed large enough to be considered a "cult following" number of fans. Fans of what? The idea? The actual horrendously designed griefing?
While I understand there are thousands of players who would literally enjoy a game where all you did was spawn camp newbs from the spawn using cheats (not saying DAY Z is like this, but the example shows that there are players for just about any game, however ridiculous it is, however bad the design, however awful the implementation of the design). I simply don't understand why this game has so much hype.
Many write off those of us who ask this question, thinking we are just carebears, don't have what it takes, or some other irrational attack when someone has a valid point on why the game isn't as good as the cult hype believes. For those of you who won't retaliate against me for making this thread...do you know why people like this?
Or is this another one of those psuedo-games where people claim it's awesome, but don't actually play it? You know... those people who go on and on about how amazing a game is, but don't play it anymore, haven't played it in forever, and barely played it for more than 20 hours but claim it's "one of the best"?
I just don't get people sometimes. And yes, I HAVE read what people say is the "good parts" of the game. However, I don't see how they get past the 99.99% other failures the game has to offer. But then again... there's still a devoted following for WAR Z, and that is one of the biggest scams in the recent history of gaming. Heck, there are even fans of WAR Z's creator's other horrendous games.
If it has zombies and is a FPS game, does that mean free phat lootz for devs no matter how flawed or awful the game is?
