Stubbs the zombie in Rebel Without, is a remaster of the Xbox classic of the same name, released in the distant 2005. The video game tells us about a dystopian past in which we will play a Zombie Who just wants to eat human brains and find love?
The original game was not a mega-hit in its day, although it did have a small impact. A design with enough personality, hooligan humor and absurd situations They have made it stay in the memory of many over the years. Still, it was a surprise when his return was announced last month.
They were simpler times
Stubbs the zombie, always updated, it’s a game of its time, we won’t be wrong. The main mechanic composed of fight against everything we find in 3D scenarios in which we will have a bit of platoform and exploration. Games like The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King The Star Wars Episodio 1, Jedi Power Battles
To be able to end all our enemies We will have 4 main skills that we need to unlock. Launch a wind that paralyzes enemies. Throw our guts like a pomegranate. Get rid of an arm that will help us take control of an enemy. And finally, use our head as an explosive remote control bowling ball.
Better to play the Zombie in company
The funniest feature of video games is the ability to turn our enemies into allies while we kill them. We are often outnumbered by enemies, but it only takes killing a few to see how our zombie army grows exponentially.
Finally, the video game presents us with some driving moments and a dance mini-game, which, although anecdotal, are not entirely poorly resolved. We also recommend enjoying them in company, although it doesn’t affect the story (we’ll be taking the exact same character), it’s something more fun.
Why do they say remaster if it’s Port?
Technically, Stubbs the zombie in Rebel Without, is almost a carbon copy of the original. In his time, the one who would do him better justice, I did not have the opportunity to play him, so to document myself I saw a video in Youtube. Well my clinical eye was never good for details, but I even think I can say it the game has not changed at all in this new version. Animation, control, design, textures, everything seems to have been “respected” as it came out in 2006.
This fact still appeals to some nostalgic, but the game has undoubtedly paled a lot over the years. Other companies, like Capcom, have shown us how to make a remake, and these minor approaches leave us with a bittersweet taste in our mouths.
Is Stubbs the zombie a good or a bad game? Well I have mixed feelings. Clearly this is a game that takes a lot of the nostalgia factor, it’s a complete copy of the original which wasn’t a bad game. Even though I am an old school player, I am not the same as 15 years ago., so I missed a playable improvement. Mostly hints or clearer signs of what to do at all times, as I got lost on some occasions.
In addition, the duration is not too generous. We can spend between 3 and 5 hours. There is up to one feat to complete it in under 2 hours. What about the history of the game? Said in a way that seems random, it will assault us between the different screens. We’ll find out who we are, who killed us, why we’re zombies, or who the girl we’re chasing is, but the reality is, the story here is the lesser.
On the other hand, and it’s less forgivable, the game crashed on me 3 times, completely exiting the Xbox main menu. The bloodiest of them was in the final streak of the match. This forced me to rehearse the entire final screen in order to see how the story ends and get the achievement for completing the game.
