There’s something special about Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse. It’s a bizarre thing too, and not just from a gameplay design choices from 16 years ago. It’s peculiar because it’s a game from three console generations ago, and it just resurfaced as it got re-released by publisher Aspyr. Now available on all modern consoles and PC, it looks and plays just how I remember. Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse may not have been a massive hit, but it’s looked back on fondly. Now this is different kind of zombie game, and it’s a good way to kill the time. “Would Anyone Like A Peanut?”
Layers of Fear: Inheritance is a great compliment to Layers of Fear, as it came out at the right time and is a rare instance where the DLC exceeds the quality and storytelling of the core game. Layers of Fear ended up being more about jump scares and mind-bending visual tricks while telling its tale of insanity-ridden artist. Together, these games form the cleverly named Masterpiece Edition, and are two different games that creates very effective gameplay.
