Excerpt: Based on the very successful Plants VS Zombies franchise this latest game from PopCap delivers a new online-only fragging experience where you play as either the Plants or the Zombies in a variety of modes as you put your skills to the test against the best The Internet has to offer… unfortunately for me The Internet has some pretty darn impressive players and usually that diminishes the fun as they are just too good.
Conclusion: What at first seems like a bizarre experiment actually turns out to be an accomplished and brilliantly entertaining multiplayer shooter. Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare might not manage to hold your attention for more than a few hours, but while it does, you can't fail to have a blast. Suitable for carnivores and vegetarians alike.
Excerpt: Chaotic chlorophyll! For all of gaming’s designs on greater reach, bigger audiences, and more diverse experiences, the industry loves shooters more than any other genre. There’s no escaping shooter fans, festering and Xbox-green like a shambling horde of brain-dead zombies eager, to gobble up the living and now... now , they've nibbled on the folks at PopCap. Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare takes the developer's characters and shoves machine guns into their hands.
Get comfortable before you play the new Plants vs Zombies pinball table
4 September 2012
Excerpt: I hate to be the wet blanket who doesn’t like Zen Studio’s enthusiastic cheerful Plants vs Zombies table for Pinball FX2. But I don’t really have any choice. It’s more a matter of exhaustion than cynicism, or any sort of high pinball standards, or problems with the how the source material was adapted. On that last count, the Plants vs Zombies table is beyond reproach. It hits all the right notes from Popcap’s enthusiastic cheerful game.
Conclusion: For fans of strategy, tower defense, and cartoonish zombies, there’s no reason not to pick this game up. “Addictive” deserves to be its own genre, especially with the growing popularity of handheld and throwback games. Plants vs. Zombies adds fuel to this argument; it’s incredibly addictive, and it has plenty of extra features, mini-games, and completion obstacles to retain the attention of both kids and adults.
Pros: Highly-addictive, strategy-based gameplay ., Unique, cartoon-like art direction ., Zombies!
Cons: Lasting appeal plummets upon beating the game.
Summary: Plants vs Zombies
can be bought as a standalone Xbox Live download for 1200 points or as disc bundled with
for $20. The game is a great deal whichever way you choose - for those who don’t have the two included games, the extra $5 on the disc version makes it a steal.
Pros: Extremely, fun and addictive, more than any game since, Harvest Moon: Back to Nature., Cute graphics, clever subversions of everyday items and plants into something utterly different and amusing, funny gameplay and pleasantly silly sound effects. Plus that great video., It carries a reasonable price, for a, change, Plenty of mini games to keep you busy.
Cons: Why can't you go back and play the music video again after beating the game?, Can’t have a Thriller with Michael Jackson anymore. Spoilsports., The action gets too crazy in later levels – with all the things flying back and forth across the screen and sound effects layered on top of each other, it’s hard to pay attention to everything happening onscreen – which can lead to a gruesome zombie death!, No level select., Hard drive installation disabled.
Summary: Now over a year since the first release of PopCap's take on tower defense, Plants vs. Zombies has arrived on the Xbox 360. Destructoid gave that game a perfect score and I couldn't have said it better myself. If you're unfamiliar with the basics of Plants vs. Zombies , I'll refer you to that review as this one will be focused entirely on what separates the Xbox Live Arcade version of the game from the original.
