Stubbs the Zombie in "Rebel without a Pulse" Review
11 March 2010
Conclusion: With an industry constantly looking for something fresh and new, Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse is just the title to fit that bill. This is an experience that is fresh, fun, and completely unique. While the story pushing the events of the game wasn’t quite solid enough, and we weren’t always sure as to the current mission, the gameplay throughout is still solid. Add in a two-player cooperative mode for kicks, and this becomes a title for two.
Excerpt: Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse for the Xbox is, undeniably, one of the most unique games that a person could play. The biggest question raised by this somewhat odd and entertaining game is: How does it stack with the fundamentals of the Christian faith? Let\'s take a look, shall we?
Excerpt: Imagine that after living a crappy life, you were murdered, just like that and even worse, when they threw your ass into a hole in the ground, no one cared. No one came to wish you your best as you began your journey into your afterlife. There were no fancy tombs, no sacrifices, no screaming widows; just a lump left in the Earth after the dirt was thrown on top of you. That would suck.
Excerpt: Features 1-2 players In game Dolby Digital HDTV - 480p The poor zombies, boy do they have it bad as they are forced to play the bumbling, grunting, simpleton villains who lose heads and limbs simply to help make a video game bloodier while the undead get to be the heroes. Enough is enough, already, zombies have feeling too you know...well kind of.
Excerpt: Being the first non-Halo game to be created using the Halo engine really puts pressure not only on the developers of the new game, but it's also a testament to the engine that's being used to create the game; Especially when the game on the outside has nothing to do with the game engine it is using.
Conclusion: Stubbs the Zombie is one of the more surprising games of 2005 and I would consider it one of the sleeper hits of this year. Unfortunately it is hard for me to recommend this game as anything more than a rental, simply because you can complete it in one sitting. However with that being said, this may be one of the best games you rent all year, especially if you enjoy zombies and the fifties.
Conclusion: It really depends on what your taste is in games. If you’re a fan of the horror genre, then this is definitely one for you to pick up. If you’re just a casual gamer then I would be sure to put this on your rental list.
