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.
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.
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare review: the chicken and waffles of video games
28 November 2011
Excerpt: When I saw Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare , my first thought was WTF. Still, it was an interestingly curious game. I played a fair amount of Plants vs. Zombies on my iPhone, and I avoided Plants vs. Zombies 2 like the plague. I didn't understand how Garden Warfare was a natural extension of the franchise -- because it's not. By all accounts, this game should not work. But it does. Like chicken and waffles, Plants vs.
Campy, silly zombie romp has plants saving the day.

Summary: Parents needs to know that this PC game contains a fair amount of mild fantasy violence. But that is done is a silly, campy manner because the game is about defending your home from zombies by planting plants to stop them. All the plants can shoot at the zombies, but they do it on their own once you plant them. You do not aim and shoot the undead, you are the strategist. The zombies either fall down or occasionally lose a limb.
Conclusion: PvZ, which is without a doubt my new favorite tower defense game, proves that PopCap are still kings of addictive experiences. PvZ is a game that can be enjoyed by casual and hardcore gamers alike and has the perfect balance of strategy to keep both groups of gamers satisfied. As far as tower defense games go, PvZ is pure gold.

Excerpt: Giving credit where credit is due, the people of PopCap Games are the masters of addictive gameplay. Their seemingly simple puzzle games, bizarre premises, and overly cartoony art style somehow strike a chord with gamers and non-gamers alike. Before the typical player realizes it, they've sunk hours into games like Peggle and Bejeweled. Plants vs. Zombies is no exception to PopCap's line of hypnotic gaming experiences. The adventure mode of Plants vs.
