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.
A shameless knock-off that repeats many of DayZ's problems. Worst audio ever. Bullets for sale? Really?
If you're even slightly tempted, just remember that at the maelstrom's core is a very basic and ugly game made by a company that is both dishonest and incompetent. Combining disgraceful ethics with endemic failures of design, The War Z is a real disaster.
The only way to draw even the tiniest bit of entertainment from the game is by playing on nearly empty servers to avoid the player-killing cheaters and focus on the undead. Even then, you soon get fed up with the dreary zombie combat, or some hacker shows up and puts you out of your misery. Fighting zombie hordes in an apocalyptic wasteland has never been so depressing.
If you see this game approach you, do not panic. Simply aim for the head, attempt a decapitation or set it on fire.
A staggeringly cynical clone of DayZ, which fails utterly on every level imaginable – and with only the most unreliable of promises that it will ever improve.
All I can say is that The War Z is a bad game that deserves all the controversy it's drawn, and that you should avoid it like the undead.
