One of the best creative survival sandbox type games out there at the moment. The developers are constantly working on it, and the updates are consistent and usually include quite a bit of new content and bug fixes. I give a lot of credit to the developers for really keeping in touch with the community to improve the future of the game. Awesome to play with friends. Geared more towards long term survival where you need to tier up your gear and skills, be a bit creative, explore, scavenge. If you want to just smash zombies in 1 hit right off the bat, then you might want to look at something else.
If you're someone who loves zombie shooter games with an open world and enjoy crafting with survival elements, I'd highly recommend this to you, the first time I looked at it on steam the graphics didn't pull me in so I glazed over it, but I received it as a gift and played a bit, got over the initial learning-curve and then discovered its a great immersive game. The new experimental release of alpha 16 added a lot of new content and mechanics, including distant view of POIs which takes the game to a whole other level and as a PVE player I enjoy the game in single player, but the game shines best in multiplayer.
Minecraft was too boring for me (I'm not a creator for creations sake). Terraria was fun, I enjoyed the additional combat focus. DayZ didn't have 'it' for me, I didn't like the lack of building (at least when I played it) Ark was fun (dinos!), but it got stale as there was no forced conflict. No reason to explore, no reason to keep building. So it fell into the minecraft trap. 7 Days to Die allows me to be creative, but gives me a good solid foundation of conflict and purpose to my building. Not only that, but it creatively forces/encourages me to get out of my safe keep and risk exploring which causes me to engage with the game content in a very enjoyable fashion.
After having spent over a day total on 7DtD, I must say it is my favorite game as of now. It combines all of the best aspects of The Forest, Minecraft and DayZ with few bugs that are hardly noticable and it lets you take the game into your own hands. Build a massive corn field? Sure. Keep a cage full of living dead? Go for it you sicko! Build a giant statue of Shrek? I have 3 already! You can do what you want and more whenever you'd like, and it doesn't require internet, which is an important aspect for me because I live in a rural community and thats why I never really got into Rust. Overall I say it is completely worth the money
Im going to break this review down in 4 parts Gameplay, Dev support, Performance, and Price each with Pros and Cons. Ive play 239 hours as of this review Gameplay PROS- This is one of the most addicting games I have played that I can constantly want more and find myself playing 6, 8 even 12 hours at a time and wishing I didn?t have to go to bed ive even rented my own server so my friends and I can always work on our base even when the other are not on to host the game. I?ve played many of the zombie apocalypse style end of the world survival games. But this is hit the nail on the head. You are constantly battling the elements hunger, thirst, stamina, wild life, and of course zombies! The game give you a small introduction on how to craft and make the bear essentials but after that its up to you how you want to play do you want to be the lone wolf that travels the waste land aimlessly living like a nomad, or do you want to be the home body that builds a nice home and decorate it with pictures, Tvs, chairs, kitchen cabinets, refrigerators (all craft able get to that later), or you could be the crazy wacky prepper that builds and concrete underground fort Knox ? ME . All of this and more for what though you might ask well a horde of Zombies that comes on every 7th night, that progressively gets worse and spawns stronger zombies every 7 nights. Cons- This game has a learning curve to it mostly due to the different playing styles you can choose ie skill points. For example if you wanted to just scavenge and loot you could put all your skills in making you player not need to eat or drink as much as well as decreasing stamina needs for running. The only other kind of a con is the sheer amount of content this game has I have play right at 240hours and still learn stuff every time I play like a new type of block or something I didn?t know was craft able is. Dev support Pros- This Is the games biggest PRO!!!!! The devs listen and actively support and respond to the gaming community. If you don?t believe me go to 7 days to die.com and browse the forums and you will see the Devs posting in a lot of the thread as well as keeping the gaming community up to date with videos and posts about what they are fixing/adding to the game. They are about to drop Alpha 16 which will add so much new content its not funny over 88 pages of content and bug fixes etc. They also allow mods the workshop is full of addons, and full game mods check out starvation mod for and example. Cons- The only Con here is the game is still in alpha and subject to change at the Devs discretion for example if with this patch you like a feature they may take it out the next patch or adjust something that was over powered etc. Performance Pros- Game doesn?t take a super computer to run at lower settings, and will run on multiple OS systems, and even comes on Xbox and PS4. The graphics are getting better with each patch from when I started playing to now is nothing short of amazing. Cons- This game is a resource hog from hell! Not because of stunning visual but because of everything that is going on in the world wildlife, bases being built, Zombies, and other things i'm sure. The game has a memory leak also, I was noticing at about 3-4 hours of gameplay I would start getting lag spikes, so I pulled up my resource monitor on my other monitor and noticed I was using 97% of my 8gb of memory 7.2gb by 7 days to die. This can be simply fixed by logging out of the current server and logging back in. Lastly is Price Pros- even at full price $24.99 this game is a steal but I would recommend waiting for a sale or a good promo code from Greenman gaming here and snag a copy. You will not be sorry!. No cons on price that game is work more then the $24.99 in the current stage of alpha.
