You Lose Tuesday: The War Z!


The War Z was supposed to be the next addictive PC game, where you and your friends would work together to survive the zombie apocalypse and have fun in the process. Unfortunately, the immediate reason this game sucks is because of Microtransactions. BLEURGH. But this gets even more sickly, because The War Z isn't even free, and if you don't want to wait 4 hours until you can respawn, then PAY UP. Seriously, I could just end this review right here, but for visual entertainment reasons, i will continue.

Hackers pretty much owned the game, and there were so many guns everywhere that it took away the challenge of the game. But the worst, worst part is that they didn't fulfill their promises that they talked about when they announced the game. There was no levelling system or skill system, so the game got stale after a couple of playthroughs, the servers only supported 50 players (64 in Battlefield!) and there were no private servers (Also in Battlefield.). Sure, they fixed these in updates, but if you promise features when the game is announced, surely you should implement them in the full game, or even delay the game! Late features is the reason that GTA Online hasn't been as popular as it should have been!


People also claimed that it plagiarized the DayZ mod for Arma 2, but seeing the state of the DayZ Alpha, I don't care about plagiarism, as long as I get a good multiplayer zombie sandbox game! Castleminer Z is better than these games combined! Also, The War Z was forced to change it's name to Infestation: Survival Stories, which sounds like a game were you're a Termite infesting a wooden house, but then the house is put into quarantine and you have to survive the gassing. No one take that idea!

And to top it all off, some people that worked on Big Rigs: Over The Road Racing developed this game too! You'd think they'd be hiding in Siberia or something like that...

So, for your microtransactions and unfulfilled promises, we don't salute you, The War Z, but instead we play State Of Decay, and pretend that the NPCs are real people.

Why'd you do it War Z?
