battlefield 3 is like a mongoloid cartoon compared to this game... which is maybe more like a blueprint of a mid-size townships sewer system or if robert crum were to play pictionary on acid in an old abandoned warehouse by himself. i'ts pretty great.
"more realistic," but also gets to the heart of the matter... because zombies don't exist. If you're shot, you're probably dead unless you get bandaged up real quick by yourself or somebody helping you. if you fall off a building, rocks, etc, you shatter your ankles and have to crawl around until you find some morphine or somebody bring it to you.
there's no point to the game. you just live as long as you can, as well as you can, until somebody shoots you or a gaggle of military zombies emerge from a crashed helicopter and corner you in a swamp. people make up their own stories. dicks 'spawn' camp the big cities with high powered sniper rifles from hundreds of meters away and wait for noobs without guns to make a run for the hospital... then, inevitably, do-gooders recognize the pattern of murders and come to stop them / take their equipment.
but it is still an alpha build and full of painful glitches / bugs. Earlier today I had my first AK-74 glitch into some floorboards when i set it down whilst attempting to put a shotgun in my backpack. dummmb... Switching to what i thought was a larger pack, all of my morphine was glitched out of existence... Later i lag-spiked on some stairs in a barn and fell, breaking a leg or two. As the morphine had minutes earlier glitched out of existence i was forced to climb to the top of a hay bail, throw a circle of flares around my soon-to-be corpse and start firing into the zombies that were attracted to the red lights at night (why not have some target practice before suiciding back to the beach).
but a few hours later i made another attempt... a sniper north of stary nova was tracking me but he was picked off by some guys with aks in the woods around grishino... i hid in some bushes giggling over direct chat while his corpse was looted. now i am at the most northern part of the map, with matches, a hatchet for wood, a knife for hunting / disemboweling, camped near a dam of relatively fresh water... now to start a new day z life, far from the troubles of the city, farmville 2.0.
LIGHT, the summer sale has begun... save your 25% and buy the thing now. turns out my plan was terrible; there are no livestock away from cities and wild boars seem to be pretty random spawn; rabbits are very hard to catch even with 12 ping. become a food mule and bring me sustenance.
