Summary: Parents need to know that Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare is a fantasy-based third-person "tower defense" game that pits garden vegetation against zombies. It's very cartoonish, but there is a lot of violence in the game, including plants that shoot peas and cactus needles as though they were bullets, plant potato mines, and pilot flying garlic drones. Zombies emit green "blood" when struck, often losing their heads in the process.
Summary: Plants vs. Zombies has been on one wild ride since PopCap was acquired by Electronic Arts. What started off as a grassroots (hah) series with humble beginnings on the PC has become an exclusive-heavy franchise -- with Plants vs. Zombies 2 originally launching on iOS, and Garden Warfare launching on Xbox platforms and the PC. In many ways EA has hurt the overall image of PopCap, but there are some benefits to being owned by a major publisher.
Summary: The Plants vs. Zombies IP is a particularly interesting case. After creating one of the biggest casual hits of all time in 2009, Popcap kind of just sat on the property, keeping quiet about future plans despite its popularity. Well here we are in 2013, and there are at least two PvZ games on the way -- Adventures , and Plants vs. Zombies 2 . I must warn you, Adventures is a social game made exclusively for Facebook.
Excerpt: The property taxes may be too high, the air is filthy and your neighbor is crazy, but your home is your castle and zombies are hell bent at eating your brains and taking over your crib. With the democrats having taken away all your guns and the cops being too busy harassing minorities all that you have left at your disposal are your ferocious plants and mushrooms. Welcome to Plants vs Zombies, let the war begin!
Summary: It may not be as flashy as Uncharted or wipEout, but Plants vs. Zombies makes up for that by offering a ton of great content. Sony's powerful hardware ends up making this one of the best versions of this Pop Cap hit. This download-only title will be the game you come back to time and time again, making it a fantastic investment! This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on.
Excerpt: Plants vs. Zombies originated as a PC game way back in 2009. Since then, the popular strategy title has garnered a large amount of acclaim and found several other gaming platforms to call home. Now the botanical struggle to defend your home from zombies has landed on the PlayStation Vita. This iteration of PvZ features all the same content from past iterations but everything has been appropriately translated to fit the Vita.
