Massive rip-off of Day Z it may be, but you have to give developers Hammerpoint Interactive credit for failing to live up to it in every way. There's the basis for a good game buried deep, deep down here, but it's obvious that it was rushed out the door many months before being finished, in order to pip Day Z's standalone release to the post. A deeply cynical and hugely flawed zombie survival game, then - and one that, perhaps unsurprisingly, just refuses to die.

The War Z was recently removed from Steam due to its misleading description. It's now back, and we don't recommend you buy it.

A shameless knock-off that repeats many of DayZ’s problems. Worst audio ever. Bullets for sale? Really?
