Plants Vs Zombies

Video Game Generation
19 January 2012
  • Summary: Plants vs Zombies can be bought as a standalone Xbox Live download for 1200 points or as disc bundled with Peggle and Zuma 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.

Plants vs. Zombies

Destructoid
5 January 2012
  • 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.

Plants vs. Zombies Game Accessibility Review

21 February 2011
  • Excerpt: Plants vs. Zombies sounds like a silly idea – seriously? Plants? Fighting zombies? Really? However, this real-time tower defense game from PopCap, despite having an absurd premise, is quite simply one of the single most enjoyable titles available today, and it is appropriate for all ages. It’s a happy game, filled with bright colors, cute plants and fun music. Plants vs.

Plants vs. Zombies

Gaming Evolution
22 October 2010
  • Conclusion: Plants vs. Zombies is a very addictive tower defense title, which is right up there with the likes of another PopCap Games title, Peggle. While it does retain some of the core characteristics that other tower defense titles use, PopCap Games made sure to give this title its own flare and own personality to separate itself for the rest.

Review: Plants vs. Zombies (Xbox 360)

Gamer 2.0
27 September 2010
  • Conclusion: The simple truth is that Plants vs. Zombies on Xbox Live Arcade is one of the best values on the entire service, as I’ve already put just over 25 hours into the game as of this review and my time with the Steam version knows that I’m maybe halfway to the possible limit of what there is to do in this game. So not only is it the best tower defense game out there, it’s a great value at 1200 points ($15 in US dollars) that tower defense fans should give a shot.

Plants vs. Zombies (XBLA)

20 September 2010
  • Conclusion: While Plants vs. Zombies lacks the superior control scheme of iDevices (and even a good old fashioned PC mouse), the extra modes are worth a purchase: even if you already own another iteration!

Plants Vs. Zombies

11 January 2012
  • Conclusion: PVZ is certainly one of our favourite games, and now we can co-op and go root-to-toe with whoever makes the mistake of wandering into 360 Gamer Towers late at night. Sa-weeet! The core game is nigh-on perfect and the huge amount of extras makes it total value for money. It's got zombies and plants in it, fighting each other for goodness sake - what's not to love? PopCap, if you had a womb we'd like to gift it something.
