I was wondering if the Day Z mod is sufficiently decent to warrant buying Arma 2. Normally, I'm not really a fan of military shootery stuff, but I have a soft spot for survival horror and a friend of mine assured me that its a great (if punishing) experience.
The thing is, I'm not usually too fond of multiplayer stuff either, so how does day Z stand up as a single-player experience?
I'm thinking about getting it myself, but if you are solely against teaming up with people I think you would be better off. From what I hear people tend to kill you only for your stuff rather than work together. The whole open world element with zombies just feels too good to pass up and I want to play it while it is still popular. I'm just curious of how big the game file is if I download it.
In its current state, it's brutally hard for new players. You don't even spawn with a weapon now. This was done to curb some of the rampant spawn killing that was going on.
The learning curve might as well be a right angle. If you stick to it and learn the different mechanics, it's a very rewarding experience. Just keep in mind that it's still in alpha. That means lots of weird bugs that can kill you inexplicably.

Hmmm, my friends love it and complain cause I uninstalled it due to glitches (most annoying is shutting your self in a building only to have zombies clip through doors/walls/floors and kill you, kinda pointless to try to secure a building).
Since you don't like mp this shouldn't be and issue but the DayZ/beta patch was messing with me joining Combined Ops mp which I love and the parachute training mission is glitched. (All could be from me not installing the beta patch correctly, if so sorry :) ).
Once it's complete and balanced it should be good, but as of now I'm staying away. Hope that helped.
