I really do not see why this title gets such hype, from the gameplay shown at E3 is still looked like the glitchy, buggy unpolished mess that the mod was.

The buggy Arma 2 engine with geometry glitches galore and the completely out of wack animations.

DayZ is a great concept but it needs some serious polish.

Although I pretty much agree with you, the game can be extremely suspenseful at times. You might have to invest some time to get to those moments, but they are there so it almost makes up for the lack of polish.

Oh yeah I completely agree, when night sets in and you cannot see anything it is very suspenseful, never had anything like that since I played stalker.

Just if it could get some polish, I'm thinking they should have waited and used the arma III engine, it seems much better.

Now on the other side of things, you can finally get to a really fun/suspenseful moment and have some game related issue completely ruin it. When I decide to play DayZ I always have to tell myself that there is a big chance I won't have any fun yet there is always that chance to have a lot of fun. Dying for that polish...

I suggest that anybody with XB Live who is interested in this game go download the arcade trial of State of Decay. Similar feel, although faster paced, and engrossing. Should provide yiu with some of your Zed fix.
