Last Rites takes as its plot the basic
zombies-taking-over-the-world scenario. Except that the apocalyptic
event takes place in the future, thereby ensuring a supply of hi-tech
weaponry with which to clobber the walking dead. Because that's exactly
what you'll be doing. You play one of the survivors of the zombie
plague, commander of a Special Forces unit given the task of ensuring
humanity's survival. Helpfully, this task has been divided up into
about thirteen missions, with different goals to be accomplished.
Succeed, and humanity may yet survive. Fail, and you'll end up as
a la carte zombie food. The sprites are all poorly animated and blocky,
and the background graphics are poor. Let's take a couple of examples
the city is made up of hundreds of repeated (and identical) building
fronts, complete with windows and doors. Can you enter a single one
of them? Nope. And at one point you enter a shopping centre ('mall'
to Americans), a la Dawn of the Dead. Except it looks nothing like
a shopping centre.. there are grey walls all around, no shopping related
items or decorations to speak of.. it looks more like a car park.
