    "One of the best open world survival game that I've tried so far! Zombie outbreaks and the gameplay may be a bit common but I still find DAYZ very interesting"

    "Bought DayZ on the first day it was released but i just played it today for the first time with my friend. I know i read some gamers say that this is very buggy and constantly they bash its developers. But imo this is a great game and i had fun playing it. "

    "DayZ is a gritty, authentic, open-world survival horror hybrid-MMO game, in which players follow a single goal: to survive in the harsh post-apocalyptic landscape as long as they can. Players can experience powerful events and emotions arising from the ever-evolving emergent gameplay. There are no superficial tips, waypoints, built in tutorials or help given to players. Every decision matters, there are no save games, no extra lives, every mistake can be lethal. If you fail, you lose everything and you need to play again from the beginning with nothing but your wits, and your two hands. Fight the hostile environment, where every other player can be friend or foe and nothing can be taken for granted. "

    "This is a really creepy game, what if monsters where in the world wars and was disguised as humans?"

    "I love the realism of DayZ. Unlike other survival horror games where you have a constant supply of weapons and a small group of friends to support you, DayZ presents you with a realistic scenario. You spawn in some remote area without any supplies. You are faced with zombies - of course! However, other players in the huge world are also challenging. For example, I have played this game and been hunted and killed by other players, which to me is much scarier than playing against AI. "

    "The world doesn't really need any more zombie games, but if you're into that kind of horror this is a pretty decent game. The gameplay is fun and relatively simple, and it's easy to play both single and multiplayer."

    "This game is a lot of fun. It is an open world survival game. This is probably my favorite genre of games. The game is currently in the alpha stage of development, so game play now is helping with the development. "

    "DayZ is not a perfect survival game but it's also not that bad... I actually enjoyed the interaction with other survivors but the bugs can get annoying"

    "This game is in early alpha testing so if you jump on it's likely you will not fully experience what this game will eventually offer to it's players. The game has some interesting features that many will find challenging and interesting. This website fully explains the features, functions and conditions of its current state of development."

    "Multiplayer survival games are difficult to pull off but I think this game did a nice job of it. It can be a little slow at times and the zombie AI acts up but there aren't many of this type of game in the genre and is still worth checking out."

    "If you really want survival game that is hair-raising, this could be the title you are looking for. Set in an alternate timeline with a great storyline, players will have to fight for survival and join other teams to do that. It is a wonderfully executed game overall."

    "I think this game is okay. I am always looking for a great new survival game to play on my PC, however I am getting tired of battling zombies. I would much rather survive something else for once."

    "Again, another zombie survival game with the need of crafting and standing the challenges against another players. Pls avoid getting killed because you gotta be back to square one again. "

    "My friends and I in need of something to do with our time, I decided to check out open-world multiplayer survival games on Steam. We ended up trying out DayZ and it is a ton of fun! The only downside is that the servers are sometimes really slow. Other than that, this game is a ton of fun."

    "I bought this game a long time ago, so long that I don't even remember the exact year. Sadly, this game is still in early release. It seems like the developers are taking their sweet little time. This game has a lot of potential, it just sucks that the developers are being ultra lazy."

    "DayZ is fantastic. It's fun, challenging, and I get to interact with people who behave in the real way people would in the post-apocalypse. I wish it wasn't so focused on pay-to-win though...."

    "This game will be a big hit and I can see myself giving it as a gift to a young male. I'm not really sure that this is completely original as there are several survival zombie themed games on the market but this one looks like fun. My grandson will love this game."

    "DayZ is a pretty intense zombie survival game, but not my favorite. I prefer a game with more options than just to survive and kill zombies."

    "I hate the restless survival phase where I need to collect gears from greenhouse to gas station but of course, greenhouse will keep you alive as it will become your farming spot. Overall, this is a great simulation game."

    "Looking for a good adventure zombie game. I started looking on Steam hoping to find zombie games that are different than the typical games from the genre. I ended up coming across "DayZ" and this is one of the most refreshing games I've played in a while. It's different than a lot of the zombie games and the open world aspect gives it a refreshing feel with a life-like map. I definitely recommend this."

    "This game did not really solve my problems with finding good zombie-related games on Steam. It showed promise a while ago, but has not markedly improved. Many bugs have not yet been fixed. There is also still quite a bit of a learning curve, and it can feel unrewarding to have an entire character or session ruined by one error or misjudgment. "

    "This is not your typical zombie game that you know the undead will be chasing you every single time. You gotta work your way out by talking to strangers, taking hints and clues from them. I consider this a hardcore survival game because of its nature. It is so funny tho when some buggy zombies fail to notice you LOOL"
