    I've heard of it a time or two but know virtually nothing about it. Here's a recent review of it on RPG.net:

    Enjoy.

    By all indication, they are one and the same. I've not seen a physical copy of this book myself, only heard the name mentioned a time or two.

    I wonder if that means it uses Palladium's system... *yuck*

    Yes it is the one by Palladium.

    Web, i'm not sure what the Palladium system consists of exactly, due to my lack of RPGing XP. but i do believe it is that system. I bought the book before i posted.

    I had always wanted to do a zombie game. Ever since i play Resident Evil on the PS1.

    I do agree with the review on the part of the lack of combat rules. It took me awhile to grasp what they were saying, so i just took what i could and went with the flow for the rest.

    We did play our first game about a few days ago. It went smoothly. I actually set it in the city where i live. Chi is player her real life self. Its been fun so far.

    I really like the class options. Especially the ordinary people occupation options!

    Can anyone compare/contrast to All Flesh Must Be Eaten?

    Unfortunetely, I've never played AFMBE. There's a bunch of reviews on RPG.net, though.

    I own and have played AFMBE. Very excellent game. Indespensible as far as Zombie Horror goes. Highly recommended.

    althought AFMBE sounds really good i refuse to buy the game because i and my players would probably only play one or two campaigns with it, and with alittle tweaking i would rather play nWoD mortals for zombie's (how i would work it is pretty simple only called shots to the head would dmg the enemy and it takes full aggravated to bring him down...instant super zombies!)

    One of the coolest elements of AFMBE is its "Zombie Creation" system which allows the GM to customize a particular campaign's zombies (read: monsters) to his likings. The most profound example of which is that "the head" doesn't always have to be the weak spot. A particular campaign's zombies might instead be only vulnerable to fire, or to a shot through the heart, or only killed by holy water, etc. As such, AFMBE can be as stereotypical or unique as the GM wants to make it. You could have flying, acid-spitting zombies if you wanted to.

    But yeah, if the "zombie" genre isn't something that would hold lasting appeal for your group, you may be better off saving your money for other things. But, the fact that it runs off the Unisystem also means that it is fully compatible with every other Unisystem game if you want it to be (Witchcraft, Conspiracy X, Terra Primate, Armageddon, Buffy*, Angel*, Army of Darkness*). *The latter 3 games use Cinematic Unisystem which is a slight variation but still ultimately compatible with "classic" Unisystem games.

    It is a very good game for those who have any interest in that sort of thing.

    I like the Kung Fu Zombies that pull out their intestines and use them as a whip.
