A qwerky mix of action, comedy and driving. A visually nice game with a HUGE map to drive around and strange characters to meet along the way. The game is a difficult one to figure out, it's trying to be a game like Psychonauts but also trying to be Grabbed by the Ghoulies. It's fun and has lots to do and explore but at the same time I can see alot of people getting bored with it. Driving is alot of times just going back and forth and it gets boring and hell, its a pretty big part of this game. However if you are a fan of Psychonauts or any of the games from Double Fine Sudios and early Rare Ware, like I am, then you may just find some gold in them there hills. 8/10

An interesting game with an art style that reminds me of Psychonauts or Oddworld. Combat can be irritating because of the camera angle. The dialogue and narration sounds like something out of a fever dream. I'm not sure if this was intentional or just poor translation (if, indeed, it was translated). The cutscenes can be a little frustratingly long, but there's something about this game that makes me keep playing. Pick it up while its on sale, but don't spend full price.

"Mindless fun". Literally.

Pound of Ground is a simple, open-world game, focusing on stemming the tide of a zombie horde in what is presumably the Western Wastes of the USA. The operative word here being "simple". You either shoot zombies, beat them about the skull with a bat, or run them down in your very own hot rod. There are little "metagames" strewn about, such as setting distance records for jumps in your car, or how far you can knock away a zombie with your bat, and these help stave off the monotony that sets in with every zombie-killing game.

The graphics are chunky, and the voice acting is evident of a development team whose first language wasn't English, but the music is pretty cool, and the cartoonish nature of the visuals make up for any cutscenes you'll inevitably want to start skipping.

The lack of polish on this game makes it hard for me to recommend to anyone when it's not on sale, but it's definitely worth at least a run through it's demo.

I really want to like this game. I do.

But it truely is mediocure. 5/10

I spent far too much time driving around trying to find locations. The humor is poorly translated.

The graphics and art design are decent. The play is challening enough. The music is great.

The pace-ing of the game is just too slow for it to hold my attention.

Might be worth a couple bucks, but there are so many issues with this game that it is not even worth the full $10 it is listed for.

Multiple unknown crashes and just bad graphics and game play are negatives. Only played it for the easy achievements.

This little game is incredibly stupid. The story, the protagonists, the dialogues. Really. In-cre-di-bly. But i would lie, if i'd say that i didn't enjoy it. Especially the zombie killing part. Actually it can be A LOT of fun, if you don't expect too much and switch off your brain for a few hours.

First of all, let me just say I have no clue when or even how I got this game in the first place. Maybe I inavertently got it during a sale, or perhaps I got it from a friend...I honestly don't know. What I do know is, Pound of Ground is definately one of most awful and boring games I have ever played in my life.

The story/script feels very uninspired, practically to the point where it almost feels as if there isn't a story at all...mostly just humor that feels forced and can be hard to listen to. The gameplay itself feels very bland and dull as well, considering practically all you do is run/drive place to place to engage in boring combat with zombies with whatever weapons the game gives you (mostly the baseball bat) and blow up the occasional generator. The pacing feels off at times, some levels are long and tedious, while others are rushed and sloppy. Oh, and sometimes the game just crashes for no apparent reason.

Really the only redeeming factor to me is that some of the music is pretty cool, but the characters are too annoying and the gameplay is too repetitive and gets old quickly for me to enjoy it for long. Really the only way I can reccommend Pound of Ground is if you like to play terrible games with badly translated dialogue. Otherwise, steer clear from this one. 1.5/5.0

I bought this game for my Let's Play channel, all I can say is this game is really bad, the reason this game is almost unkown to people is because while it's awful it has nothing that makes the game memerable.

This game cracks me up. Sometimes it tries to be a little too funny and you end up scratching your head wondering WTF just happened. I never finished it, but still one of the better silly Zombie games.

This was possibly the worst game I have ever played in my meaningless existence; and I've played a lot of games. A lot of really bad games. So many, in fact, that one might say I am a masochist. And yet this remains the most horrid, putrid, wretched game I have ever had the misfortune of playing. I hate Bohemia for making it, I hate myself for buying it. 1.75/10

The pacing with this game is all off.
Most of it is slow and tedious, others are suddenly fast and annoying.
The humour in it felt forced too.

Dull, unpleasant gameplay. Pathetic animation and voice-acting. Laughable (in a bad way) story. Might be one of the worst games ever made. Don't buy it. Just don't.

I give this game 0/10 pounds of ground.
