It’s been a while since we originally began our journey into the apocalyptic wasteland of Chernarus. At launch, we scored DayZ a dismal 2/10 in our review stating: “DayZ has a rich history, a long lineage of 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.”
