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: 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: Just about anyone who hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t been living under a rock for the past 4 years and has an Xbox has heard of Halo and its widespread success in the gaming world. You may enjoy slaughtering your opponents with the Master Chief, but why not eat their brains as a zombie? Stubbs the Zombie has been made out of the Halo engine from former members of the original HaloÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s development team.
Excerpt: When you think about it, zombies have a pretty limited skill set. But the things they choose to get themselves into they're usually really, really good at. Take eating brains, for example. Zombies eat brains like no one else can. It's like they were born to eat brains. Eating brains is the primary activity in Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pause, a third-person-perspective brain-eating-zombie simulator.
Pros: Zombies, Terrific sense of humor, Superb speech, screams, and moans, Great soundtrack, Exciting gameplay
Cons: Painfully short, Great soundtrack is underused
