Stubbs The Zombie At Quakecon
8:16 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Gamecloud has posted a critique of the Stubbs the Zombie playable build made available at the recent Quakecon event. Wideload Games' creation includes innovative third person action allowing players to use the zombie's body as a weapon. It may well draw in players looking for a new twist on the action game genre.

The PC build of the game was created by Aspyr (they will also develop the Macintosh version while Wideload concentrates on the Xbox version) and in our time with the game at QuakeCon we were impressed with Stubbs the Zombie's neat take on action games. The third person title doesn't allow your character to hold any weapons or items; his body is his weapon, litterally. In addition to attacking living human beings and eating their brains, Stubbs can also use things like his gut as a grenade or throw his head as a gas grenade. The most fun comes with throwing his arm. The arm can be controlled and moved to a human being who then is controlled by the zombie via the hard attaching to the human's head. You then control the human and if he or she is armed it can do a lot of damage before other humans take it out.
Stubbs is scheduled for a fall release. To read the full critique follow the link below.
