Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel without a Pulse

In 1933, travelling salesman Edward "Stubbs" Stubblefield was ungraciously murdered and buried in a remote Pennsylvanian field. After 26 years, a millionaire developer constructs a technological city of the future, called Punchbowl, on Stubb's burial ground, causing the former salesman to rise from the grave with an insatiable taste for human brains. 

Now it's time for Stubbs to get some revenge on this sacrilegious city by turning the living into the undead in this entertaining epic that allows the gamer to use a variety of bodily functions to cause mayhem, death and destruction in the once peaceful city of Punchbowl.

The gameplay of Stubbs the Zombie is rather straightforward with the player using a variety of actions (many humorous) such as deadly gut bombs, limb attacks, explodable heads and also farts that can stun your enemies. Ironically as Halo, Stubbs can also commandeer vehicles and drive around the lovely city of Punchbowl. The beauty of the game is that when you turn a human, you can actually control these new allies.

The control system of the game is perfect, especially the combination of mouse and keyboard that the average gamer should pick up in no time. Match that with a very interesting storyline (some borrowed from the Romero franchise) and a healthy dose of humour and this title has something for everyone. The only downside to Stubbs the Zombie is that the game is relatively short with gamers finishing the title in about 10 or so hours.

Graphically, Stubbs the Zombie is a very impressive game on the PC that actually uses the Halo engine to convey this entertaining storyline. That's right, this game uses the Halo engine so rest assured that this title contains some extraordinary graphics from highly detailed characters with realistic textures to the amazing background environments of Punchbowl.

Musically, Stubbs the Zombie features a rather contemporary soundtrack that suits the game perfectly and match that with a plethora of sound effects from the rumblings of the undead to the screams of living... not to mention Stubb's toxic farts and one cannot but help fall in love with this quirky game.

In conclusion, Stubbs the Zombie without a Pulse is an entertaining game that beautifully uses the Halo engine, unfortunately some of the gameplay does feature a few quirks such as unstable framerate and simplistic gameplay. However, if you're looking for a quick and fun title to play then you might want to check this out!
