    Synopsis


    Your garden has saved you once already from a massive horde of fun-loving zombies in the original Plants vs. Zombies. Those creepy, brain-seeking beings jumped the fence at the edge of your yard, limped toward your house and met their match — your loyal yet incredibly unlikely army of petaled and leafy friends. Now the tattered monsters are back for more. Try your hand at ultimate garden warfare — and sow the seeds of victory once and for all.

    The eternal struggle between plants and zombies rages on. In this fast-paced third-person shooter, you choose between Zombies or Plants, and mercilessly beat up on the opposite team with the multitude of weapons at your disposal. Explosives, landmines...nothing is out of bounds in this battle royale. Customize Zombies and Plants alike with hundreds of unique items and a huge variety of new abilities. Duke it out on more than 10 dazzling multiplayer and cooperative battlefields. Battle it out in 24-player online combat, or team up with up to three of your friends and annihilate the enemy in four-player online co-op. Haven't you ever wondered what it's like to be a sunflower tasked with eliminating the undead once and for all?

      If you're expecting to buy a typical Plants Vs Zombies experience, you've come to the wrong place. Popcap has taken the game to a whole new genre, shooter. Many were initially concerned with the direction the franchise was going. Could Popcap pull this off? Would EA be more of a roadblock than a help? I'm here to say that Popcap and EA pulled off what I thought to be impossible. They were able to pull together the silliness of mobile plants and zombies as a legitimate shooter. Now, this isn't your CoD type of game. It's a 3rd person shooter. As well, the game has very little, if any, rage inducing moments. At times where you'd feel a little bitter about how a situation played out, you tend to enjoy the experience and the humor that is popping across your screen. I've played for about a dozen hours thus far, and this game isn't a novelty item. It should, and will, have plenty of users on a daily basis. That being said, once a day I would randomly get booted from a server. However, I'd restart the game and run without an issue. Secondly, I do have a small concern that I'll start to become bored with the limited number of maps. I won't focus on that too much, though, because Popcap has decided to release content on a consistent basis for free, including new maps and potentially new game modes. The controls are so simple that my 4 year old can adequately get around the map and aim. It doesn't mean the game is easy, but it means the learning curve is very small - you should be able to jump in and start enjoying the game immediately. I highly recommend this game to everyone. There's a lot going on in what would seem like a simple idea to really enjoy. There's so much color on the screen, and so much going on in 12 vs 12 multiplayer, that the game is so enjoyable to play. You won't be disappointed at all. This game is worth more than the retail price.

      I purchased this game for my 9-year-old daughter, and she loves it. As far as violence is concerned, it's plants and zombies... Nothing to get too worked up over in my opinion. Because this is an online multiplayer game, however, I was a little nervous about her interacting with others considering her age and gender. I was able to disable the microphone and turn down the volume so she could not hear what others were saying, so that seems to have worked out okay. The reason for the lower rating is that you must have a XBox Live GOLD account to play the game. My daughter had a free XBox Live Silver account, which was not adequate. After looking closer at the box, I did see is indicated (in a very small graphic) that a gold account was required. The requirement could have been denoted much more prominently on the case, though. As I mentioned before, it also took a little bit of effort on my part to ensure the online interaction was restricted to what I would have considered an age-appropriate setting. (With that being said, I still prefer being able to modify those settings myself as a parent, as opposed to some games which simply limit access under a certain age, whether I deem such restriction reasonable for my child or not.) Long story, short... My daughter really enjoys the game. Just be prepared to buy a XBox Live Gold account if you do not already have one (and do some work to make the online interactions age appropriate, if the purchase is for kids).

      I was looking for some game I could play with my two sons (one who is 12) so I though I would give this a try. We all love it! Don't be fooled into thinking this is a dumbed down kids game, the gaming action is pretty hardcore and it does get very hard very quickly! The graphics are beautiful and the comedy style of animation is a lot of fun. We found the Split screen game to be the most fun for us. Especially when we added the SmartGlass app on my laptop, my youngest son played as Crazy Dave using this and provided air cover for us on the ground. It is great to see a game developer really trying to extend the gameplay using this technology. The only issue we had was with the EA Servers which would occasionally drop us out of a lobby in Multiplayer mode so I am hoping EA gets that fixed soon. All in all I probably would have given the game a good 4 stars but because of the SmartGlass app I give it an excellent 5, I love to see games that try something new and this game does that, keep it up EA!

      Update the Online Details, XBOX GOLD Required!

      When I found out this game was for 360, I looked it up on the website and looked up the closest store's stock, I rushed over and super excited to try out the game. Finally found it in a back shelf and read the cover over finding out that its XBOX Live Gold Required. My son is an obsessed PVZ fan and was really looking forward to playing this game with me. The price was a great deal and that was all that I was looking forward to, but then paying monthly or yearly for an account that I would hardly use and ONLY for this game? Makes it NOT worth it at all. No wonder the price is low, they make more money off the subscriptions, and even if not off the subscription, someone is. It's not fair to push consumers into something they don't want. I wonder how this is going to pan out when its released on the new iPad..

      Can't Play without XBox Gold

      I bought this for my son, he was so excited for MONTHS. I pre-ordered from the Best Buy website. The picture on the webpage is fairly small, and I couldn't enlarge it. I read the description, didn't see anything too out of the ordinary, I just kind of figured it was like any other hard copy CD video game. You stick it in the XBox and it works. I guess you take that for granted. Apparently there is a little icon on the game itself (once again not visable online) that says that an Xbox Gold account it required to play it. We don't have one, and I am not going to get one for this one game. I will be trying to return it since you cannot plan without it.

      My son really likes the PvZ line so when he saw a YouTube review of this game he wanted to try it out. I went out and bought it. Had no issues linking it to my EA/Origin account. The problem came when it wouldn't let me actually DO anything in the game until it downloaded a huge update that was something like 8 GBs. Yes. 8 GBs. Not a typo. The game was, at the time of purchase, only 5 months old at the time so it was quite unexpected. Needless to say it caused quite an uproar when he couldn't play the game that night and was expecting to. After that was taken care of though he's had a great time playing it. Great to see that Multiplayer is alive and well with plenty of players. Graphics are cute. The maps are medium-sized. No complaints so far!

      This game is great for all ages, plays like multiplayer on Mass effect. But younger kids can play as the story involves plants and zombies(no gore or blood/excessive violence) like pervious games. Unlike previous games this one can only be played online and unfortunately no split screen on the Xbox 360 version, only on the Xbox one version. They should have made all features available on all game systems but the Xbox one being a new system got more features than the others. Overall the game is great for players that love multiplayer warfare or team up with a couple people and go against waves of different zombies while defending your garden.

      This is an amazing online game. There is plenty of action for even the most intense gamer. There are just a few things I think could be better about this game. It needs boss mode like the xbox 1 version of the game. The only other thing is I can not figure out how to play co-op in split screen and I thought this was available in the game. If it is available it is very difficult to find, and if it isn't then that is really a drag as it is also available on xbox 1. Overall I like the game but the advertisements for boss mode and co-op (split screen) play were two of the reasons I purchased the game. I suppose I will need to purchase an xbox1 in the future to get these features.
