So Stubbs The Zombie. I love the title "Rebel Without A Pulse". And that title brings out one of the most important aspects of the game, it is fun. I finished this game I think about a year ago. And I really enjoyed it.
The story takes place in a futuristic town called Punchbowl, that looks like a city from the fifties, except it is a futuristic utopia. The town is supposed to be the modern example to other cities. And then one die Stubbs arises from the ground. And then the fun begins.
The main part of the game is the thing that zombies do best, eating brains, lots of brains. So the entire time of the game Stubbs walks around places, wrecking havoc with a bunch of mindless zombies.
Stubbs has four skills, he can bowl with his head, throw his guts that explode, use his hand to directly control enemies and he can also fart, making nearby enemies stunned.
The game also gets a little story line in the later part of the game. I will not go in to the details.
Anyways, about the graphical side, it is all good. The graphics are nice for the xbox and for the PC too. There are some minor glitches where for example Stubbs sometimes does not bite an enemy's head when eating their brains. Nothing too bad really.
The sounds are really top notch. I really like the game's soundtracks. And all of the in-game voices are really enjoyable.
And now for the worst part of the game, it is way too short. An average gamer usually completes the game in about five hours. That is not impressive, when compared to the other games that cost exactly the same amount as this.
To conclude this review, this game is really fun and addictive. It has been put together nicely. The only drawback, that I can think of is that it is too short in length (about five hours of gameplay). For people who want to have a blast when playing something different, try it and you will not regret it.
Stubbs The Zombie lets you become a man whose luck was so bad, dying was the best thing that ever happened to him. In 1933, Edward Stubblefield was a traveling salesman, trying to survive the Great Depression, when he was murdered & buried in a field in Pennsylvania. Fast forward to 1959, when billionaire playboy Andrew Monday builds his own ultramodern city - Punchbowl, where you can drink your fill of the future. Unfortunately, he built it on the grave of Stubbs, bringing him back as a angry zombie. Stubbs was a loser all his life, and being a zombie gives him power he never had before. He decides to keep eating brains until the city is his -- unless Andrew Monday can stop him.
