Infestation: The New Z reviews and comments

None worth it! Apart from constant Stills and Game Errors (which really happen very often), the pvp system is of great Nonsense. Add to that the cheap Graphics and bad Animations. Not suitable for Beginners, as work is done with a "super well thought-out" Global Inventory and every other Advanced Player is already better equipped than himself. In addition, the rank system is simply useless. You play on Servers against all kinds Of Ranks and are often inferior to others. There is no Motivation whatsoever through special Game Content. The Spawn System is also bad and you are often killed Seconds after the Spawn (99% by Snipers you don't even see). Also depressed is that other Players often use large Groups on server Joins and you simply have no Chances as a small Group or Single Player player. All together, the Game is actually Worth it for none.

I understand the Excitement surrounding Fredaikis and the Problems he created under WarZ. I had paid 15US dollars for WarZ at The End of 2012, it wasn't finished and had quirks, but still had its own Charm. WarZ was difficult, a found 9mm Wum was Reason for a redemptive "finally" into the Microphone. As a Solo Player, the old Z was another Stage more difficult. It wasn't until Mid-2013 that it wasn't impossible to get killed by a kiddie or a small-tailed Cheater. For me, the End of the Fun. Now, three Years later, now the New Z. Free to Play. Sure I had Doubts, but the good Times under War Z outweighed all the Cheat shrinking, so purely into the Fray. I have about 10 Hours of pure gaming behind me and, as an old War Ztler, I already have a small Pro and contra: Pro:-so far no experienced Cheater actions (the Anticheatsys kicks in 10 Minutes always a good Five Spinners who want to try it)-at least on The Beginner'S Server has a Lot of Items and Weapons-actually wonderful Fights (a One on One like under the New Z I never experienced under War Z), Fights in Cities are super horny-even as a solo player you have a Chance-a huge Marketplace ...-.. For whom you're not really forced to give real Money-Pay to Win I couldn't tell-Global Slotsave-Gfx is revised-old Bugs barely available-in over ten hours of Play have only had two heavy Drop-offs (both on US servers)-different Modes for F Located Contra:-the Zombies are not enemies (with the right Weapon two Strokes and he's gone)-Animations and AI of the Zombies are just as grotty as under War Z, the Worst there is known among me-you have the opportunity to find your items in a g To pack Lobal Slot Sava. With some Ambition, this one in just over three Suinden is filled with the most glorious Items-Which makes a new entry after a Death too easy-Textures are the old Shambles, but only More colorful I am surprised how well the New Z works, plus for Free. I often read that the Air is out quickly, so far couldn't tell, because the Struggles among the Players have become more mature and better. Survival is also under the New Z the Be all and End all, which is with Fun and is the Reason I gamble such Games. The New Z I recommend to any old War Ztler and those looking for a Survival title with a big Map and expandable Options.
