The game is decent, and they have the right idea, just like Battlegrounds. However, the issue I have with H1Z1 is the poor optimization (Actually, no, it's downright horrid.), connection lag, and the fact that development feels considerably lackluster (up until Battlegrounds came out, then they made a bunch of panic updates.)
This game despite a lot of mistakes is super fun and addictive. It provides a lot of excitement and excitement and joy, especially if you play with your friends! What's important the developers of the game are constantly trying to fix bugs, add something new and change things for the better.
H1Z1: King of the Kill is a battle royal game, where around 120 people are dropped into a map, where they are forced to fight to the death using weapons and armor that can be scavenged from around the world. It should be said that the game is currently in Early Access. Players choose one of the playlists; solo (a lone player attempts to make it to the last survivor), duos (the same, but you can queue with a friend this time), or fives (a party of five people team up to try to win the game.) Choose a game mode, and begin the queue. The queue times were originally very long, and could last up to a few minutes at a time, but now seem to have been shortened to find games very quickly. Once you load into the lobby, you wait for other players to connect, and the game begins. You load into the map, and begin parachuting in a random location. Once you hit the ground, the game has begun, and you need to pick up weapons to try to survive the duration of the game. Weapons range from hatchets and knives, to pistols, bow and arrows, and assault rifles and sniper rifles. These items appear in random locations in the map each game, but weapons are in plentiful supply, so there will always be something you can use to put up a fight. At intervals in the game, toxic gas begins coming in from the outside of the map, forcing players into a more confined space as the game goes on. A map given to each player shows where the marked "safe zone" is. The game really falls flat after the first few games, where you are desperately running around the world with very little knowledge of what to do or where to go. After this amazement wears off, you really find a game that doesn't actually have that much to offer. The map, although large enough, is filled with lots of empty land, and although vehicles are available, you will probably spend a large amount of time running from one place to another without really seeing or doing much at all. Early Access provides a whole host of bugs and glitches. One of the main ones I experienced was random deaths early in the game. Around a minute into the game my character would just drop dead, and a message would pop up declaring that I was "killed by environment," whatever that means. As well as the many bugs and laggy servers for you to experience while playing this game, there is also a whole host of cosmetic items to be forced at you, whether you like it or not. Crates, although not a necessary part of the game, and can be ignored by the player if it is something that does not interest them, are still a large part of the game, and for something in early access, it really makes you question the motivations behind the devs. All in all, you should really save your money on this one, and wait for bug fixes and a large price cut before considering picking this up.
H1Z1: KotK is a good battle royal game. It's a very unpredictable game, you need to adapt to each game very quickly, know the map and that kind of stuff. There are many ways to play it, you can high risk-high reward approach, with a very aggressive playstyle, and that might give a good advantage throughout the game in gear or you can lose the game in the first couple of minutes, or you can play it "slower" more relax, trying to just survive, I found that is the most reliable way to get into the top spots, but will be very hard to fight to win because unless you get great loot at the start you don't have that much to go around and get good gear. It's also not as fun and you will find yourself alone for most of the game. There isn't much diversity in terms of guns you can reliably count on, and some of them feel awkward to use. There is also a ton of customization in the game. At the end it's a good game, it's not a "must play" title but if you are into the genre you will like it.
Surviving here is tough, even if you have friends, to back you up. I play in a group of six, and non of us survived a single game so far! That is partly because of the many gliches that plague the game, and also, sometimes i just die for like no reason. Apart from that, this is a solid surviving game, that never gets boring. Sure, i lost a lot of hair because of it, but at least something always happens.
