    A great, unexpected game

    I bought this game based off of game play footage from the beta and the intro video. I am actually really pleasantly surprised with how much enjoyment I've got out of playing this game. There are a lot of game mode types in which to enjoy different play styles. Unlocking characters is fun though at times a little tedious - I wish they had more variety of packs for non-rare to super rare characters or included some consumables in the highest priced pack with the character pieces. The game modes are as follows: Garden ops/zombie ops - you can play both factions coop with 4 players Story quests - both factions Infinity mode - end fun mode with large animal robots and gnomes. PVP - with many different game modes Endless waves at the flag of power. - this mode would be more fun if there was higher multipliers and more coins for this game type so that you could level your characters with friends a little easier while not sinking way too many hours into the game. People said during the beta the multipliers remained from normal quests which I wish were still the case or at least 1x exp and normal money. So far I have been getting more enjoyment out of the playability of this game than FarCry Primal. Farcry is a bit more repetitive and doesn't have split screen for my wife and I to enjoy together. The split screen is a little too limited though. Why can't we play online with other people or do quests together? Overall I would give it 5 stars because it is a great fun game with lots of options for fun game types with friends of all ages.

    I bought this game to play with my girlfriend and my 5 year old son. They both love it. I'm more of a realistic shooter/RPG fan, my girlfriend is a casual gamer, and my son is just starting to play. I played this non-stop for a couple days but grew tired of it pretty quick. Even though I got bored with the game it's still something we can all pick up and get an afternoon of enjoyment from together. It has violence but it's cartoon violence- no worse than what's on children's cartoons these days. The controls are intuitive and easy. The characters, animations, and environments are great, very creative, and humorous. Think of it along the same lines as the Lego games but more exciting and with fewer puzzles or required teamwork. Although this is no Call of Duty, Gears of War, or Fallout, I definitely recommend this game to anyone who is wanting to play casually with their significant other or younger kids.

    Decent Sequel - Needs more Dancing

    I've been playing PVZ GW for a long time. Love the original game. I'm pretty good at it. My favorite part is the dancing and having so much fun. PVZ GW2 has a LOT less dancing. That means it is a lot less fun for me. It has new characters, new maps, new abilities, but a LOT less dancing. The gameplay is faster and more frenzied than the original. The graphics are certainly more crisp, but they're not as bright as the original. PVZ GW 1 was sort of cartoony in the graphical style. PVZ GW2 isn't realistic, but it's darker, which makes it harder for me to target / see other players. Overall this is a good game. I'd buy it again. Just wish EA would add more dances!

    Not as good as the first

    First off I have to say that I love the first plant vs Zombies garden warfare on xbox one. It's probably my favorite game. I had super high hopes for this game. I recently got to play the beta version for a couple days on Xbox one. I have to say that I am a little disappointed. Don't get me wrong, it is a great game. New characters, new world, a whole new playing experience. I guess what I didn't quite like about it was it was a little too busy. So much going on, and it was kind of hard make out everybody's characters. They kind of all blend into the background. I would still definitely recommended it and I'm absolutely going to buy it when it comes out. I just think after playing it for a while I might go back to the original. Maybe not, but only time will tell.

    falls short of original

    Loved loved the original. Loved it for its simplicity, but it lacked good local multiplayer action. In GW2 they expanded on the local split screen play, which is nice but you still cannot play two players split screen online. My biggest criticism is that the characters CANNOT be transferred. If you do a quick search you'll find that it appears you can, but you have to read the details in that transferring of character ability expired Feb 2017. So that is a large disappointment. The new characters are ok, but still prefer the classics. Also with the characters you only gain experience points for the specific character played, not the class of characters.

    Not interested in a game always requiring internet

    I bought this game with the intention of playing it with my kids. I saw clips of the gameplay and thought they were cool. Once I bought the game on sale as part of the deal of the day, I researched further before opening it. I discovered that you always have to be connected to the internet to access some server in order to play the game. It was not built for off-line play. I didn't like that feature at all. I wanted to play the offline version with my kids. I don't want them to always have to connect to the internet to play.

    Super fun sequel

    If any of you are on the fence about this, thinking that it's not as fun as the original, jump over that fence! This one's great fun for all ages. Dads and Moms that like to jump in and play with their kids will have a blast with this gameplay and everything's safe for kiddies of all ages. Keep in mind, though, that online play may change things if you can hear what the other players are saying, so if you want to be perfectly safe, just disable hearing everyone's chatting. Single-player Co-Op is an excellent way to spend a rainy day or a hot day away from the pool or lake. With its new Plant and Zombie classes and engaging environments and abilities, this one comes highly recommended!

    It a great game for kids. My grandson is five and he loves it. It’s plants and zombies and you as the player can be a plant or zombie. GW2 is fun and has many levels and characters. It even has different hats and shirts and outfits for the characters to put on so more fun for all. It’s not like the other games where people are shooting people so i feel it’s safer for his developing brain that other Types if first person shooter games. Protecting your garden and your friends sounds good to me!
