Stubbs The Zombie Examined
8:50 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

IGN recently reviewed the PC version of Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse, the zombie action game from Wideload Games and Aspyr Media. Stubbs puts players in the role of a disgruntled zombie bent on destroying the hapless denizens of Punchbowl. Although the lack of cooperative multiplayer hurt the final score, the game's undead theme and sense of humor still managed 7.5 out of 10 from IGN.

The intelligence of Stubbs' enemies ramps up as you progress though the game and based on what level of difficulty you've set before you begin. Your zombie horde can be controlled through some rudimentary commands like whistling and shoving, but generally they'll do their own thing, and they prove to be pretty effective. However, your undead pals will start getting wiped out faster and faster as the enemy weapons improve, putting more of the onus of progress on yourself. Given your speed limitations and dependence on brain eating for special move charges, this can become frustrating. Thankfully, one meal of brain results in a fully charged hand icon.
