I will talk about my review on playing this game (200h) , some informations about the game , zombies , is the game worth it?
Review: I played this game for over 200h and i still can say i am not bored , the game is very funny and challenging for the survival games lovers. The game is very interesting , being on of the best survival games comes with an interesting mechanics of building and environment. You can even add mods for a more interesting experience. The game is not to be played alone even if you like survival games like me , you should find a friend to play with on servers or coop , because in my opinion this game is pretty hard alone.The game keeps updating and improving so i will give a 9/10.

The game takes place in a apocalyptic world where only way to survive is farming , hunting or looting form cities or villages guarded by zombies who lived there. This world beeing the consequence of nuclear fallout. When you start the game you spawn in a random location. The game includes wildlife that can be hunted for food (deers/bears/pigs) or will hunt the player(bears, vulture). The zombies beeing the biggest problem for you , as the game says you have 7 days to die , that means evrey 7 days a hord of zombies will atack you and your base , ofcorse you can select how loing a ingame day last and same for the night. The game has a day/night cycle for the zombies (can be turn off) when is day they are moving very slow , but in the night they can run as fast as you do.
Let's talk about the crafting, the game use a preatty basic way to craft , if you have the items you need to craft something you only need to click on the item and press craft. The game use a level/skill system , some skills can be upgraded by using points you made evrey level up (perks) or crafting items of that type of skill. ex: For Tool crafting skill just craft tools. There are many skills like The Camel which helps you carry more items. Skills photo:
As you can see in the photo the games uses a quality system , more quality means more dmg to enemys or blocks and more durability. Now let's talk a little about the food , well how much food is in 7days you ask?
