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: After invading PC, Mac, iOS, Android, XBLA, PSN, and the Nintendo DS, PopCap Games has finally shambled its way over to Facebook via its new outing Plants vs. Zombies Adventures . Mixing the series’ classic brain-eating tower defense mechanics with a simulation/social network setup (a la Farmville ), PopCap has created a hybrid that’s as addictive as the original game. With the impending release of Plants vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time (not ”It’s About Thyme”?!?
Pros: Addictive l More PvZ l Robust gameplay
Cons: Micro-transactions l Being on Facebook l Inviting Friends
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.

This iteration of PvZ features all the same content from past iterations but everything has been appropriately translated to fit the Vita.

Excerpt: Although this game has been out for awhile, Impulse Gamer was finally given the opportunity to review this entertaining puzzle game that pits Zombies against Plants. Reminiscent of those tower defence type games, players must use a variety of plants to stop the never ending hoard of undead from reaching one side of the screen to another.
Excerpt: Plants vs. Zombies is one of the most high profile and popular releases to emanate from PopCap Games. It’s essentially a tower defence game, where you place a wide variety of militant plants on your garden lawn in order to stave off waves of zombie invaders. Plants vs. Zombies is in many ways quite a simple variation on the genre, all of the levels are an identical size and everything is packed onto the screen-sized grid in front of you.
