    Just about every aspect of DayZ is in dire need of some degree of polish, however, if you persist (and you should) a deep and ultimately ingenious title lay underneath that places a premium on player-made stories. All the same be aware that in its current state, it will take a remarkable degree of patience to get that most from DayZ - such quantities that more than a few folk simply won't have.

    The catastrophic technical condition obscures the gaming experience enormously: glitches, bugs, poor sound mixing, zombies without hitbox make DayZ a nightmarish gaming experience that is hardly fun.

    DayZ is a complete and utter disaster on PS4. Not only is it profoundly outdated in 2019, it’s also technically inept. A horrendous frame rate brings the experience to a standstill on a worryingly consistent basis, while numerous bugs and glitches are a bewilderment. After taking five years to release, we can’t help but feel like this was an outright waste of everyone’s time.

    Dated, buggy, and irredeemably wearisome, DayZ on PS4 offers an experience as empty and uninteresting as Chernarus itself that was certainly not worth waiting nearly half a decade for.

    DayZ has a rich history, a long lineage of war stories and strange survivor tales that have drawn thousands down its rabbit hole, but its reality is very different. There’s nothing here but a dull, vacuous wasteland, devoid of character and relying solely on players to make their own fun.

    It's unbelievable that this broken mess of a game appears on the PlayStation Network in this basically unplayable state. It's worse if you consider the steep asking price. Steer clear.

    Much buggs and Lags, but it's the first kind of genre on the PS4 and I love it!

Technically it does fall short in graphics, frame rates, etc. Experience wise, it has a wide open set of opportunities. I have poured hours upon hours gathering stories and events that have left me laughing, sweating, and even seconds away from a heart attack. I wouldn't even recommend this game to the average gamer, nor would I claim it is the best game out there, worth the cost. I cannot deny I am having g fun, but I know it is limited to players like me and my crew. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The better you get at the game, the worse it gets. Incredibly unreliable, for example, I spent three days looting up, got into a fight with a zombie which are very easy to kill, game froze, lost everything. We can sit here all day bringing up the endless bugs and glitches that riddle and writh throughout dayz, but we won't, because this game is not worth the time. Save your money, or make a better purchase. All this game is going to do, is piss you off. Expand

The game is buggy and has some serious issues with its servers. The fact that they are charging money for this is absurd, given that I wouldn't even recommend playing if it was free. It looks horrible, it feels horrible to play, and half the time this broken mess isn't even playable.

    Fallout 76 is way better than this.
