The War Z Review
Hello everyone today I'd like to talk about the still developing game called War Z. The War Z is an open world zombie survival horror video game developed by Hammerpoint Interactive. The game features both first person and third person shooting abilities, allowing the player to switch between the two. The game only offers players the option of playing against other users. It had the lowest score on Metacritic in the year 2012. The game is set five years after a zombie attack which has wiped out the majority of the world's population, leaving most of the world either dead or infected. Shortly before the game's start, a new and rare type of zombie mutation has been discovered that allows the world's living citizens to create a vaccine that will cure infected humans of zombification. The gameplay will have users looking for these zombies to create vaccines and to fight against packs of zombies. The War Z is a zombie survival game, where players must survive in the post-apocalyptic zombie infested world. Survivors can find weapons which are lying around the map, and can increase their chances of survival by joining in with groups of other players, which feature currently is not available, regardless of what the company's website promises. The game incorporates "realistic" survival features such as hunger and thirst trackers, which can affect the player's health. Supplies such as food and water are also available around the map, and can be picked up and used to reset these counters. If no supplies are collected to remedy this, hunger and thirst can kill the character over time. It is also possible to buy food or drinks if you cannot scavenge any. Overall I'd give the game a 3 out of 10. I expected more when my friends told me to buy the game and hope that Hammerpiont will continue to improve the game. So don't buy it until it reaches a playable stage that's enjoyable and to all War Z players, don't be camping jerks. This has been Jacob Arnold, signing off.
