DayZ has the power to create incredible stories, but the twitchy, weightless combat and buggy zombies let it down.
DayZ is still broken, still beautiful, and still unfinished
DayZ has a rich history, a long lineage or war stories and strange survivor tales that have drawn thousands down its rabbit hole, but its reality is very different. There's nothing here but a dull, vacuous wasteland, devoid of character and relying solely on players to make their own fun.
A bad adaptation that stills looks as an early access game.

Stumbling on other survivors is a thrill, but in reality those encounters rarely lead anywhere interesting. DayZ is an anecdote-generator, but the odds are you’ll need to feed it more hours of your life than they’re worth.
DayZ is a complete and utter disaster on PS4. Not only is it profoundly outdated in 2019, it's also technically inept. A horrendous frame rate brings the experience to a standstill on a worryingly consistent basis, while numerous bugs and glitches are a bewilderment. After taking five years to release, we can't help but feel like this was an outright waste of everyone's time.
Just about every aspect of DayZ is in dire need of some degree of polish, however, if you persist (and you should) a deep and ultimately ingenious title lay underneath that places a premium on player-made stories. All the same be aware that in its current state, it will take a remarkable degree of patience to get that most from DayZ - such quantities that more than a few folk simply won't have.
Total technical failure, which hides a rather exciting survival simulation somewhere

Boring post-apoacalyptic zombie world, which is after 5 years of circuitous development not very attractive for players.

I really can’t say enough about how disappointed I was with my time playing DayZ.
