Unpolished and seriously underrated, yet quite fun game on the mainstream theme - "zombie rampage". This time - in the distant town somewhere on Mid-West of USA. What I like about the game - is that it stays on the bright side of things. You know, the Zombie Games are usually Dead Serious. Not a bad feature, but all of them are so similar on the basic level, that it is absolutely no fun. Stubbs the Zombie was different, one-of-a-kind gem... But there are too little count of games trying comical approach on the zombie pattern - and that's a mile behind the cinematography. Which is strange, as generally games are far more creative with things, in comparison with Hollywood...

Now, Pound of Ground is not something worth a long review, really. The "Hero" there doesn't have Ash Williams charisma and chainsaw, but other than that - it's the same type of guy.

The game starts a bit confusing, but quite soon you'll get a bat to crush z-sculls, then a car, a pistol, a shotgun, a long-ranged crossbow, and finally, a dynamite. Zombies will be upgrading as well, there will be monsters with distant attacks, sages-which-raising-hordes, and even bigger things on the dessert. Controls are a bit off, but only a little. In general, it is rather easy-going arcade game with semi-open world, some zombies to kill and some hills to jump with your red cabrio. Full complete in less than 10 hours, and way better aftertaste, than with so many other Zombie games. Especially when we're talking about smaller ones, like Dead Pixels, which so many people seems to like without proper reason...

Sure, Pound of Ground has many flaws, if you care to look for them - like strange name in the first place, followed by wacky start of the game, somewhat clunky controls and gameplay in general... and not-so-good code, as the game tends to crush every now and then, usually on the loading screens.

On the other hand, it is doing well the thing the games are generally made for - it is entertaining. I really like it just the way it is (except for unstable code, of course). It is short and fun, if a bit mindless, comedy action game about zombies. With great fusion soundtrack, which I really enjoyed.

My mark is 8/10. I usually play serious long-winded games, like epic RPGs and strategies... But sometimes you just can't force yourself to take the playtime so seriously. After 16h-work day, for example... And Pound of Ground is perfectly fitting that niche of short and easy action. There should be more games like that!

What happens when you throw Rare, Shiny, The Evil Dead, The Residents, and the hillbilly Midwest (Colorado?) into a sausage maker and wrap it with Tim Shafer's intestines then look at it through the peephole of some guy's front door in Prague? I'm assuming this game.

Uninteresting story, dull combat and a brand of humor I just couldn't appreciate.

Pound of Ground is a (mostly) open-world zombie bashing, redneck loving, apocalypse saving, nightmare of a title.

The gameplay can be fun...sometimes, but in general it's painfully clunky. Car driving mechanics are decent and I'm always a sucker for games that let you run over people/zombies. Plus using a Louisville slugger to launch zombies never gets old.

The story is god awful wacky with voice acting to match. The best thing about the story is that the developers obviously weren't shooting for something serious--and they did a superb job in that regard.

Overall I have mixed feelings, but because the game crashes too much, I have to go with a thumbs down. It's playable, but I came close to uninstalling it on several occasions.

Gameplay mechanics are decent.
Driving is good, way better than the driving in Watch Dogs.
You have some weapons you can choose from.

Story is cheesy - and that´s a good thing. The game doesn´t take itself too serious.


The negative comments probably come from the fact that the section where you get
hunted by a rocket-launching truck might seem too hard at the beginning and the savegame
isn´t placed that well either for this section.


The art-style is fascinating - it´s not good but it has something steam-punky that catches you.

The soundtrack is a bit misplaced - sounds a little bit like grunge. But it is bearable.


Definitely a buy when on sale or in a bundle. - and don´t freak out during the chase-section - it´s really not that hard.

If the developers had spent more time and budget upon the actually improving the core gameplay? I have no doubt it would of still been a crap sort of game, but slightly less crappier. It seems that a lot of development time and budget went on cut scenes and voice actors? Trying and so failing to make this game appear zany and quirky? Baseball bat ten zombies and you have seen all the best this game has to offer, and then uninstall (trust me). Sometimes I hate being a game completionist glad I am not a achievement completionist too with sucky games like this one, lol.

Let's start by the fact that it has a demo (+1), Always better trying a demo than buying a game and feel like being cheated.
It is an open empty world. Meaning that you can run a lot, everywhere, and find nothing. just plain fields.
Run, or drive.
You got a car to enhance, by buying new engines, protective gear (SPIKES) And Nitro, helpful if you've got one of these moments where you want to jump from high cliffs. Careful tho, as your car is damageable and can lose parts of its body.
Driving is quite enjoyable and responsive.
You got 5 weapons (One of them is a baseball bat which sends zombie flying scoring home runs).
You simply are an average hero who's going to save the world from a zombie invasion. Nothing more, nothing less.
It's an average game, with a debatable humor (I found it funny, tho.), go-there-and-do-this-then-come-back mission type,
a race, an entire city to free from mafia (Zombie).
The soundtrack is pretty good, it's jut a bit limited and you'll end up hearing the same song three times in a row, too.
Graphics aren't the best, but cities and other places are, in my opinion, detailed. By detailed I mean that there are a lot of particulars that add a bit more dynanism and entertain the eye. I often found myself moving the camera around, trying to find something odd, unexpected.
After all I still recommend it: calling it the worst game ever is overly exaggerated, although there aren't 5 bosses and the story isn't exactly well written. It's just an average game, enjoyable if you don't expect that every game you own is a GOTY or received a score of 90 / 100.
The only real advice I can give is to not buy it on full price, wait for at least 50% discount.

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.

I went into this game expecting it to be one of the worst games I have ever played and in that I was disappointed, I am a bit of a Masochist when it comes to games and I do seek out bad games as well as good ones.

The other user reviews on this game plus TB's "Why do I own" video made this one sound like that would be that bad it would make a great video, So when it came on sale for 1€ I grabbed it.

The game is average. It does not do anything well but doesn't suck at anything to badly nether. It is what it is. If people really need tips on actually bad games they can feel free to drop be a line because this is not it.

Would I recommend this game? if it's on sale for a euro or two I guess why not but not at full price. but note it's just an average game with nothing that really stands out it doesn't do anything to wrong but nothing to right nether.

For those who want a hot tip on a game that far worse than this and to prove my point. Get "Dark Apes: The Fate of Devolution" Play that a while and this game will seem rather good :P

It's not a horrible game, but there are many faults

Good:
-Music is ok
-Wide open environments
-Graphics are not too shabby
-Driving is decent

Bad:
-Music is all over the place sometimes. Different styles.
-Nothing in the wide open environments
-Story telling / voice acting is absolutely atrocious
-Consisted of fetch quest. Go from this place to this place and then back again.
-Crappy framerate in busy parts...dropped down to 10-20fps
-Guns are weak. Gunplay is meh. Only 5 weapons, 1 being melee
-Easy game
-Animation quality is poor
-Lots of stupid dialogue
-Forced Humor


It's an indie developer so i can't really be too harsh on them. It was an ok game. I got it on sale (obviously)

I"d say 4-5/10

An interesting mostly free-roaming game., Gameplay mechanics are acceptable, graphics are decent, voice acting decent, storyline.... convoluted but acceptable.

Overally, not so bad that I couldn't complete it but there's really no reason to start it over nor is there a free-roam reward mode after completing the storyline.

If you've got it, its worth a playthrough if you're bored.

This is the stupidest, most hilariously inept game I have played in years, and yet it has this sick charm like a brain-damaged boxer who keeps trying to fight... you know it'll get savaged when you put it up against anything at all, no matter the opponent, but it'll go down swinging with a smile on its face.

You play as ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ Johnny Five-Aces! (Except they call him "Johnny Major" but look at the dude. He has the whole damn outfit.) Everyone speaks this hilarious not-quite-English that results in things like a farmer mangling attempts to hit on you for half a minute, and a hero who sounds like a drunken Garcia Hotspur from Shadows of the Damned.

Bonus for some of you who will remember it: this is the game that was infamous on launch for having a RED, RED CAR! as a selling point. That's the kind of quality you're getting out of this whole game. Get in on the ground floor and pound it. Pound the ground. Pound of Ground.
