    The Great Zombie Survival Experience

    • Pros
    • Realism
    • Mods
    • Character System
    • Large Open World
    • Wide crafting options
    • Multiplayer
    • Lots of content
    • Interaction with Environment
    • Many Hours for Gameplay
    • Unique Skills
    • Cons
    • Simple Graphics
    • Hard for Mastering
    • Some Bugs
    • No Real Endgame
    • No Achievements
    • Lack of NPC

    Amazing game, well worth it. Start off dying a lot, turn into a pro, then download a bunch of mods and play it again.. Like every other game in the genre, you will learn some mechanics and struggle to get them under control. Once you grasp them, you will move on to the next few, repeat. In learning alone, you can spend 100–200 hours mastering the game.

    After mastering the game, there are plenty of mods and an in-game sandbox editor to change everything about the game. The only issue I have is other than pure sandbox survival you lack a bit of endgame other than “Clean out Louisville” or something, but this is after hundreds of hours of play so that’s not being super fair.

    Amazing game with a great modding community
    10
    • Pros
    • Still being worked on and updated
    • Active modding community
    • Super fun to play solo or with friends
    • Simple enough to learn, but hard to master
    • Cons
    • Can be brutal, especially playing solo
    • Multiplayer can be buggy & laggy

    I absolutely love Project Zomboid. I don’t play it constantly but I do come back to it every few months and have a super fun time with it. The base game itself is already awesome, and there’s a ton of amazing mods to enhance the experience even more. I’m not much for combat in games, more of a homemaker, so I tend to lower the difficulty down just a bit for myself lol

    There are so many things you can do in this game. You can live in the city, out on a farm or even camp in the wood if you really want. You can cook, craft, build, forage, fish, and fight. You can be more of a stealthy pacifist or go all in with guns blazing. There are so many places to explore, either on foot or in a vehicle. Definitely my favorite survival game of all time, and honestly I’m not even that into zombies as a genre

    Everything you do matters, and you will die a lot. You’ll go into a very inconspicuous looking house only to find there are 10 zombies inside who will jump you. You’ll try to run from a hoard, get exhausted, trip over a fence and get ripped to shreds. You’ll forget to check one room in a house and wake up to being attacked. The world is brutal and unforgiving, but you’ve gotta make the best of it and use your resources wisely. Every fight could result in a bite or scratch that will quickly lead to your doom, and getting injured in certain areas will strongly hinder your ability to fight or move quickly.

    My favorite things to do personally in the game is farm, hoard food, cook, and collect the plushies (which you can then decorate your house with!) Also, I very much recommend checking out the many different mods on the steam workshop as well, for more cooking recipes, more plushies, better backpacks, and cool cars.

    Surviving the Undead: Project Zomboid
    9

    As I love survival games, especially the ones with zombies, I had to try the Project Zomboid, and I can say that it truly is an awesome game. It is a gritty survival game that throws you into a zombie-infested world, where every decision matters. Even though it has pixelated graphics instead of the flashy one, it is the thing that brings a nostalgic charm to the bleak setting, adding to the game’s unique atmosphere.

    One thing I really like about Project Zomboid is its survival mechanics and the depth it goes. From scavenging for supplies to building barricades and fortifying safehouses, every action feels meaningful and contributes to your chances of survival. The game isn’t easy, and it won’t hold your hand, and it is certain that you will die more than once, but exactly this adds to the sense of accomplishment when you finally successfully survive the dangers of the zombie apocalypse.

    As any other game, there are things that could be improved. For example, the learning curve is pretty steep, and the game can be brutal at times, especially for new players. It took me a while to get the hang of things, and I died more times than I can count before I started to figure out how to stay alive.

    Other than that, once you get past the initial learning curve, Project Zomboid offers a unique experience. The constant threat of zombies keeps you on your toes at all times. Whether you’re scavenging for supplies, fending off hordes of the undead, simply building your base, every moment in Project Zomboid feels tense and dangerous.

    In a nutshell, it is a challenging and rewarding survival experience that will keep you busy for a long time. Don’t be put off by its simple graphics, as once you scratch the surface you’ll find that beneath it lies a deep and engaging game that will surely keep you at the edge of your seat. So go ahead and try it, you won’t regret it.

    Easily one of the best zombie survival games ever.
    10
    • Pros
    • Realistic, to a certain degree*
    • Large Open World with tons of areas to loot
    • Well balanced trait system
    • More Steam workshop mods than you could ever possibly imagine
    • Active and Vocal developers
    • Amazing Multiplayer with great netcode*
    • You can modify almost every setting and play how you want to
    • Tons of zombies can be on screen at once (although you might get some lag)
    • Cons
    • Very difficult for beginners on the default difficulty, but you shouldn't shy away from making it easier on yourself
    • Slow development and inconsistent, but high quality updates
    • Isometric View and Simple Graphics*
    • Hard to run if you don't have a powerful computer, especially if you want mods*

    I’ll explain certain pros and cons here, in order.

    [Realism]
    While the game certainly is realistic, there are some things that aren’t and the developers has a tendency to make certain things unrealistic for balancing purposes. For example, water can be scarse later on when power and water shut off so they made it so you can’t collect snow in water barrels. You also can’t use a crowbar as a crowbar to pry things open (Both of these issues are fixed by mods)

    [Amazing Multiplayer with great netcode]
    Even when playing with someone across the world, with a ping of 200, the game runs smooth. If a zombie is hit by someone else on high ping but that zombie isn’t near you on your screen, the zombie will teleport to where it should be like how rollback works in fighting games. This can be jarring at times, but it doesn’t happen often. The multiplayer aspects are wonderful and can also take away some of the difficulty if you are a beginner.

    [Isometric View and Simple Graphics]
    I put this as a con because it might be a con to some people, but I personally don’t mind it. The simple graphics make it so more zombies can be on screen at once so when you come across a hoard, it truly feels like a hoard and not 40 or 50 zombies packed together (like dying light.) The Isometric view can be jarring at times, though.

    [Hard to run]
    Didn’t I say the simple graphics made it easier to run? Well yeah, to a degree. If you want to mod it, it gets a lot more difficulty, especially when most people run more than 40 and most servers you join probably have 100+ (I’ve seen some with 500+ before.) The game’s engine is also Java, which historically has issues running well, take Minecraft for example. The developers are working on redoing the way things are rendered for the next update, which they have shown in tech demos severely increases performance.

    That is it for my “Review.” I hope I have convinced whoever is reading this to buy this amazing game, if you don’t already own it. It’s one of the best zombie related games I’ve ever played and it is currently my most played game on steam, and will probably continue to be.

    Project Zomboid: Thrills,Chills & Hilarious Spills
    9
    • Pros
    • Complete survival experience
    • Standout gameplay
    • Successful blend of various genres
    • Quick and effective immersion and character identification
    • Abundant crafting possibilities
    • Interaction with a significant portion of the environment
    • Large map
    • Multiplayer mode
    • Cons
    • Graphically simple
    • Very difficult to get the hang of

    In Project Zomboid, you’re not a glistening muscle-bound action hero or a “charismatic” woman armed with a shotgun-grenade-launcher-mine combo or whatever. Here, you play as an average person, with strengths, weaknesses, and most importantly, needs. This game is a true crossbreed of genres: your primary goal is to not die to zombie hordes looking for a snack (Survival-Horror), all while avoiding succumbing to more natural causes like hunger or thirst (Simulation) by scavenging the surrounding environments for essentials (Exploration). This is complemented by optimizing your daily life through learning new skills (Role-Playing), and the list goes on. The inspirations are many and blend well.

    In Project Zomboid, survival hinges on swift prioritization at the game’s outset. Securing a weapon, food, and a safe place to rest is paramount, considering the day/night cycle management. Your character’s need for sleep and the potential scarcity of drinkable water add urgency. Scouring various locations is essential, but inventory management is critical; though collecting everything aids crafting, your human limitations restrict carrying capacity. Move strategically, searching logically placed items in houses: find food in refrigerators, books in libraries, and bandages in first aid kits. Cooking meat in ovens, closing curtains, or hydrating in toilets, if needed, demonstrate the game’s remarkable realism. Exploring a house might trigger alarms or attract zombies with breaking glass sounds, demanding a swift retreat. Importantly, every detail poses a threat, from glass shards to expired food, emphasizing Project Zomboid’s exceptional logic and human-centric approach, a departure from typical zombie game conventions.

    You thought you only had to beware of zombies? The weather will quickly be added to the things to consider. Keep all kinds of clothes on hand to avoid getting too hot or cold or simply face the winter blizzard. The longer you survive, the more resources diminish. Running water or electricity will eventually cut off, so the food will rot faster… quickly find a standalone generator to address this issue. Learn agriculture, hunting, or even electricity.

    I can’t cover everything about the game in this review; there’s too much to talk about—the player’s skill improvement system, base construction, various vehicle-related aspects, multiplayer mode… The game is constantly improving, and updates are always planned, plus the game has over 10,000 mods created by the community to enhance the gaming experience.

    At first glance, I can understand that it might not attract your attention, but it’s the most complete zombie survival game I’ve come across. Through your gameplay, you’ll narrate the tale of your end… and only your end: you’ll need to survive, plain and simple, until you can’t.

    One of the best survival games ever created
    10
    • Pros
    • Large Open World
    • Character Creation options
    • Tons of different ways to play and approach the game
    • Fun skill system
    • Better with friends
    • Cons
    • Difficult to learn
    • Kinda Unforgiving

    I played this game for the first time solo, I enjoyed it but wasn’t something that really locked me too much, but, the game really shined when I played it with friends, one of the best if not the best survival game to play with friends, it can give you and your friends a good laugh (and sometimes break your friendship ._ .).

    The game gives you a lot of freedom of what you want to do, either be it to just rush through the game by killing everything on your way, or play on a more recluse way, learning new skills and growing a base (either with new defense mechanisms or even growing food). The game also has a trait system when you’re creating your character where you choose between a really vast traits quantities, or sometimes you need to choose some “debuffs” for your character to be able to get newer or better traits. The game is kind of confusing in the beginning, you’re just thrown into the world (even with the tutorial sometimes activated, the game just leaves you to figure some things out for yourself). Also, the game is kind of unforgiving and forces you to make the best choices instead of just play like a mad man.

    The most realistic Zombie Survival Game yet
    9
    • Pros
    • Realistic Metabolism
    • Modable
    • Realistic Character Trait system
    • Active Devs
    • Cons
    • Rough learning curve (for Survival-beginner)

    I’ve been playing Project Zomboid for years. Why? Because it’s the most realistic Zombie-Survival Game out there.

    Everything you do ingame will have an effect: You made to much noise? Run! You cut yourself on a window? Hello infections! You ate an old fish? Ohohoho!

    The Metabolism-system is very detailed: Hunger, thirst, infections, temp, emotions etc. You have to find a way to keep your MC physically and mentally balanced.

    To survive you can to a lot of things: Create a hide-out, build a garden to grow your own food, plunder the city.

    While you try to survive your MC will get better: Learning by doing and reading specific books.

    If you are looking for a realistic Zombie-Survival game, this is it! (Try the Demo first, to see if you like the style and handling)

    Most Detailed Survival Game Yet
    9
    • Pros
    • Detailed Character Trait system
    • Large Open World
    • What Ever You Think Up You Can Probably Do It
    • A Lot of Different Ways to Play
    • Multiplayer
    • Cons
    • Difficulty Curve

    Project Zomboid is one of the if not the most detailed survival game that is currently on the market.

    At the time of this review the game has been out for almost 10 years now so a lot of content is to be expected.
    But Project Zomboid takes it up to another level.
    When first starting the game it can feel both really overwhelming with the amount of traits and skills you get to choose at the beginning, Luckily most of these skills can be gained over the playthrough.

    When you spawn into one of the four areas of the game you can pretty much go and do what ever you want to do. you can go and live on the road with a car, stay and secure a house or even build your very own and furnish it with what ever you can find in other houses.

    There are a good amount of skills for all sorts of activities such as farming, carpentry and running away from the massive zombie hordes.
    This game is not messing around and will throw you right into a town filled with hundreds of zombies that will come towards you if you make a little to much noise.
    I recommend playing in some of the smaller towns even though the loot is less plentiful this is a good option for learning the game.

    There are a lot of systems in Project Zomboid and a lot are not obvious, It really is learning by trial and error and following a guide series might be something you want to look into if you don’t fancy figuring it all out.

    You can also play this game online either on a private server where you can play with your friends or a public server where most of the time you find looted broken houses so I would stick with private servers.
    Multiplayer has its own changes and additions to the game, like inspecting a friend and looking if they are wounded and you can even help them out with some meds or bandaging their wounds. A downside about multiplayer however I find is that you can no longer sleep therefore you are stuck in the dark at night.

    I definitely recommend Project Zomboid if you are a fan of survival games. There is a lot to do and it is not expensive.
