Stubbs The Zombie Previewed, Six New Screenshots
8:57 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Yesterday Gamespot posted a preview of Wideload Games' upcoming undead action game Stubbs The Zombie. The preview explores the increasingly polished graphical look of the game as well as gameplay features such as the new ability to harm enemies by tossing Stubbs' head like a bowling ball.

Here's a bit from the preview:

We had the chance to try out the post zombie invasion Punchbowl level and were pleased by how the game handled. Stubbs was surprisingly responsive and spry for an undead creature. Using his detachable hand to possess enemies or pitch his head for bowling down foes handled well. Better still was managing your undead minions who'll tag along and help spread the insanity. We were especially pleased to see that, if you possessed the right soldier, you'll basically have access to any of the firearms in the game. The other sweet new element in the game that we were able to try, albeit in an early state, was the two player co-op mode that lets you and a friend tear it up through the game's story. The only catch is that, unlike other games, you won't be able to swap between the single and two player experiences on the fly.
Stubbs should be shambling into a store near you this fall. Follow the links below for the entire preview and six new screenshots.
