    If you have played Garden Warfare 1 and liked it, you will love this game. New characters, new hub world, story like missions, hold the flag, tons of coins, new defender modes for zombies, secret areas, and new animations for the bosses. The game features nice graphics as well but the gameplay is where this game shines. The only gripe i have is with the multiplayer. I find myself sticking to single player because the multiplayer is a bit unbalanced at the moment. New every other day challenges with give you a boost to XP was a great idea, not only does it keep me engaged but it gives me something to work for while doing other things. This game built upon the first one in all the right ways, even so far as to not put links to their micro transactions(for coins). Speaking of which, like i said earlier from playing the game you generate enough coins to get new characters and other sticker packs. All in all the game is great and i gave it a 9\10 borderline 10.

    I finally remembered to pick this game up, after forgetting to pick it up, at launch. This game is definitely fun, and doesn't take things seriously. PvsZ is a great option for kids, who want a first person shooter game, but the parents don't want them exposed to too much violence. The players get kicked out, rather than some sort of gory death. As for adults, they'll find it fun too (obviously I do). It has humor, and the game is still challenging. The gameplay is like rush, in battlefield; capture an objective, then a new objective becomes available. Don't skip over this game, if it looks too "childish" too you. My only complaint is that the game suffers from occasional lag issues. Usually once, per evening, I will have a moment where my player jumps back, from a lag spike. It's annoying, when it happens, but isn't an overwhelming issue

    This is a worthy sequel and the new characters add to the game. But there is nothing revolutionary about this if you have played the first one. The things I liked: Base mode is a nice addition. It doesn't really add to the base game play but is nice if you don't feel like getting into a full game session. Graphics are still high quality and the environments are detailed and well suited to the theme. Playing the Zombie side is a nice bonus and is a fun way to play through the game. Things I don't like: Online play is still not very compelling. The match is fun but I can't find myself staying in the game for multiple matches. There just isn't enough there. Co-op/split screen. This game is begging to be played buy a bunch of friends sitting on the couch. It's casual. Why only 2 player split screen? We have 4 controllers! Seems like a missed opportunity.

    Very fun game with lots of depth and customization. There are many multiplayer modes in this game along with single player story type missions. Every multiplayer mode can also be played solo with bots, which is really nice if you want to practice before playing against other people. You start out in a zone called "the backyard" and it is a open world zone with all the single player quests, garden ops, challenges, back yard battle, secrets, and a multiplayer player portal to play different game modes. I haven't done it yet, but I believe you can invite your friends and/or play with others in the backyard zone, which is a nice touch. I highly recommend this game, it is very beautiful with a lot of depth and personality

    I love the 3rd person format of this remake of PvZ. I did not get to play GW1 so I am not sure how it compares with GW2 but I like the fact that everything seems to be accessable via "play to win" vs "pay to win". New characters are obtained through quests or via coins that are gained via quests and matches (either solo or multiplayer, your choice). Some of the quests can get monotonous given the rewards but you can gain characters on both teams so your will probably find something to appeal to your play style. Warning: there is grinding if you have your heart set on a particular character and you are not lucky with the (random) character packs.

    I like to say I'm an avid gamer, I like to play all types of games. However I'm quite picky when it comes to online multiplayer. If it doesn't interest me or if the gameplay is clunky or boring I drop it right away. Not this game, I found this game to be extremely entertaining. The gameplay is fun and engaging, the online community is friendly, and the game modes are plentiful. What I like most about the game is how much the developer themselves care, and how they're constantly updating the game; especially the fact that all future DLC is free! If you're looking for a fun MP that's great for all ages, then I wouldn't skip this one.

    And my oldest kid always wanted this game since it came out. I finally saw it on special so I decided to reward him for the good grades he brought me this year. According to my son this game is way better than the first one. It allows two player to play at the same time. So my kids take turns in playing against each other. The first game was only a one player so this game for my kids is much better. Now the only con I have against this game compare to the first game is that it required the purchase of the PS Plus Membership to play online against other players and to also continue the game.

    I bought this for my son, who was a fan of the first game, and he wasn't the least bit amused. No matter how many times he tried to go back and play it, it just wasn't his cup of tea. According to him, the gameplay changes are what hampered the game most. They took a simple indie-type arcade game and tried to make more out of it and turn it into a big budgeted game. I myself am not a fan of these types of games, as they feel very lazy to me. Very reminiscent of an iPhone game ported to consoles, then it seems they tried to turn the sequel into an entirely different style of game. 2 stars on the behalf of my son and I.

    Really nice sequel to the first PvZ

    I'm a massive PvZ fan. I got the first garden warfare game and it was the only game I played for 1.5yrs. They did a great job of this game, rewarding players like myself by allowing us to transfer all of our unlocked characters to the new game and giving us coins as a bonus. The new characters are fun to use as well. My only critique for this game would be that something seems somewhat off/lacking with the audio. I still love it, though, and if you were a fan of the first one or are curious about this game, I'd say just go ahead and give this a shot. I think you'll really like it. Good fun and great for all ages.

    PVZ GW was better

    I started playing PVZ GW1 on a laptop to getting the GW2 on the PS4 and honestly its still fun but I prefer the other set up It was more organized and neater to me as a computer game vs a console game. The servers are a bit glitchy but the game play is still fun I do prefer the first version over GW2 tho. I would still recommend as there are not many people still playing the first one to still make it enjoyable.

    Better than the first PVZ

    It's an amazing take on the first PVZ. It has great multi-player and the backyard area is super fun because you can join or invite people to your/their backyard and play together. They also have dedicated multi-player which has the old team style against zombies or plants and a vs which is incredibly fun. They've also incorporated a solo quest line for both plants and zombies that are very fun and gives a good story for those that like playing games for that story element. All in all this is a great game!!!:)

    I bought this looking for a new couch co op to play with my husband and seven year old son. Works great for that. I actually play it more alone thab with them because I really enjoy it. It does require PlayStation Plus to do a lot of additional things. But even without that there is plenty to do. For example, there is a quest board that updates every two days to give me something new to work towards completing.

    This game is an overall improvement to the first game, in almost every way. The new hub world is the best addition and the single player missions are great as well, for when you don't want to play multiplayer. The mechanics remain the same, but the leveling system is a bit more advanced and the customization is rather extreme, in a good way. Overall it's good fun and family friendly, however it won't keep you hooked for all that long, but your kids will love it.

    Fun, but Online Connectivity Required

    This game needs to be connected to the EA server to be played, even in single player mode. along with a PS network account. This game also needed a 11.3 GB patch before it could be played, which really bummed my son out because he was really excited to play it right away. He like the game alot however, although playing as a zombie, this is pretty much a first person shooter game, which is surprising for a 10+ rated game.

    I bought this game for my boys, 6 & 9 yr olds. But I find myself playing it more and more. I'm actually getting very good at it. Compared to the 1st game, our favorite thing about this game is being able to play as zombies not just plants. The new characters are pretty cool too. I wish they would release a few more maps. And my biggest gripe is that player 2 doesn't get to keep any of the relearned points/rewards. All in all, great game.

    This is a fun game. I purchased it for my kids, because they liked the original. I have to say, they care completely different, and this one seems to be based a lot on online competition. Which is something that I really don't prefer to do. Otherwise the game is pretty cool and has plenty of stuff for 1 and 2 player locally playing people, as well as the online content.

    A great alternative and breath of fresh air from the typical competitive military shooter. Genuinely funny and also genuinely fun, this game has tons of variety and a great cartoony aesthetic brought to life through amazing graphics. Lots of characters and modes for competitive and cooperative play. Split screen mode is here which is welcome. Don't expect a deep story mode though.

    Bought for my 2 young boys. Not sure if its the game or playstation but had tried for 45 minutes to activate and download the game but EA kept telling us that we could not play unless we signed up for one of their accounts which we did not want to do. I just want to be able to put a game in and play. Will think again when buying another EA game.

    Definitely a much needed and appreciated update to an already cool game. Play is much better, as are any of the effects. The best part is multi-player mode and ability to play as one of the zombies. If you enjoyed PvZ Garden Warfare you will love this sequel!
