    Fun fps for all ages

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    Nice shooter for the beguinners and seasoned players alike, but there is still a mayor flaw that bothers me a lot: you need an online connection to play ANY feature (multiplayerr or solo campaign), why is this?, do the maps must be downloaded every time I play?...

    I got this to play with my son because he loves plants vs zombies. It's a fun game with hours of playtime. The variety of characters is great and it's a lot of fun to unlock and level up new characters. The only downside is you have to be connected to the Internet to play, even if all you want to do is local split screen play.

    My kiddos love the plants vs. zombies franchise. We played the first one to death and bought this one when there was a sale. The chat is very annoying so we usually mute it, but the game is very fun. Lots of material to keep us entertained, and easy enough for all of us to play.

    My son loved playing the original game and couldn't wait to get started on this one. My only regret is that it was not available on PC, because now I have a hard time getting onto the PS4 to play as well. Fortunately, you can play multiplayer on the same system, so I am able to play with him when he allows it.

    An enjoyable game for all ages. I enjoy nonconventional shooter genre games, and this fits the bill. A PS Plus membership isn't required for offline play, but I believe an internet connection is. All modes can be played offline in local co-op. Note that extensive hours need to be put in to unlock new content.

    I really like the added variety of characters, but the player base just isn't there yet. I can always get right in a game when playing PVZ GW1, but there are nearly that many players in PVZ GW2, and it shows when you can't get into full games. That is the only reason I give it 4 instead of 5 stars.

    Garden Warfare 2 is a fun reimagining of Call of Duty-like first person shooters using the Plants vs Zombies characters. The humor is great, and the shooting feels pretty good. That being said, I wish they would make another game in the strategy series instead...

    Purchased GW2 to play with my son-in-law and the split screen co-op battles have been excellent! No grading on a curve in respect to mature gamers, the shooting mechanics in GW2 are in good company with games like CoD or Overwatch, just with an innocent spin. Honest family fun!

    I never played the first game that much. It's a solid shooter and the take on plants vs zombies is neat. There's a variety of characters to choose from and the maps are very detailed. It's a fun experience even if you're playing alone. I haven't experienced any problem playing online.

    I had seen other reviews for GW2 and it seemed like most of them said that this is a polished version of the first game. I disagree and would like to say this is a great game in and of itself. If you are looking for a casual (occasionally goofy) third person shooter then look no further

    My grandson requested this game for his eighth birthday, and really seems to enjoy it. That's all that matters to me. I can only rate this based on his reaction, so I hesitate to give it 5 stars as I really don't know enough about these types of games. (IHAL)

    More to do, new characters, new maps, and new costumes with the addition to side quests, a better way to accept goals and much more. It gets 4 stars since you now have to level up each character and each costume which can take a while to do to collect the abilities.
