Addicting

This is a very addicting game in which you kill zombies. Because that's what plants are supposed to do, right? Even though it might not make a bit of sense, it is fun to play. once you start you can't stop. Basically a plant COD. Its worth the price.

Nothing like the OG PvZ

77Bottles | July 4, 2014 | See all 77Bottles's reviews »

Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare is the sequel to Plants vs Zombies. With Garden Warfare there is nearly non-stop action as you blast your way through plenty of zombie enemies. With many different plants, equipment and abilities the game lasts for a while if you like to collect everything in a game, but if not, then the Garden Warfare becomes boring rather quickly unless played with friends.

Easily one of the best multiplayer shooters available

cappincrunch | June 25, 2014 | See all cappincrunch's reviews »

I'd rather play this over any other shooter available today? Why? Because it's more than shoot, reload, and repeat. Strategy comes to play in this game and if you play with caution and as a team, you'll dominate. Try to go Rambo and you won't do much for your team.

Multiplayer: There are game modes. Team Vanquish (Team Deathmatch), Gardens and Graveyards, Welcome Mat, and Gnome Bomb

Team Vanquish: Your typical team deathmatch. Every game needs this. You kill, respawn, and kill again. First to 50 kills wins, but 1 kill can be taken away with a revive. Every class can revive.

Gardens and Graveyards: Battle it out plants vs zombies that spawn defense and offense A.I. and compete to take over territories head on.

Welcome Mat: A great place for new players. The more you are killed, the more health you spawn with. This brings a little more balance between skilled and unskilled players.

Gnome Bomb: Both teams fight for the bomb which is used to destroy the opponents' base.

Classic: This allows players to have access to all characters and upgrades so players who join late don't have to compete with high levels who are better geared.

Mixed Mode: A mix of everything

Coop: If you've played dungeon defenders, you get the idea. You will always play as plans and you will choose a garden to defend as a team of 4. You can plant defenses in premarked areas. Players take on a total of 10 waves of zombies. Wave 5 and 10 contain boss fights which are randomly picked. You could end up with 1000 coins and 1 Yeti, or you can have 3 yetis, or 1 yeti, 1 disco zombie, and 1 gigantuar. So 3 bosses can spawn in 1 wave.

Coin system: Whether you win or lose, you earn coins at the end of every game. The least I've made was 1,000 and the most I've made has been 8,000. You earn coins for just about anything you do to contribute to the team.

With these coins, you can purchase booster-pack cards which unlock weapon mods, character skins and costume items, or plants to use in coop. I think this system is a bit unfair. The more multiplayer versus you play, the more coins you earn towards plant defenses in coop. That means players who stick with only coop will eventually have a hard time collecting money and buying booster packs for defenses.

Booster packs: There are a series of cards that range anywhere from 1,000 coins to 40,000 coins. Obviously the more you spend, the better the loot and the booster packs give details on if you're guaranteed a certain item or have a high probability of getting a rare/very rare item.

Classes:

Plants: Short to Long Range Peashooter: Fires at single-round burst. Upgrades: Mounts and fires rapid shots Speed/Jump boost for a short time Chili Bean Bomb that rolls out and explodes for massive damage

Chomper: Melee Upgrades: Tunnels underground and pops out and eats the opponent in 1 attack Other upgrades currently unknown

Sunflower: Short to Long Range, Support Class Upgrades: Healing pot that heals people nearby Mounts and fires a sunbeam that fires rapidly at your opponents Heal: Channel a heal to 1 friendly at a time

Cactus: Long range Upgrades: Defensive barriers Potato mines in the ground that explode for massive damage when stepped on Drone: Allows you to fly a garlic drone that fires rapidly from the sky and is able to call in an airstrike of corn on a selected location. This can go down in 1 hit and does not harm the cactus, but the cactus will be vulnerable during operation.

Zombies: Footsoldier: Short to long range Upgrades: Stink bomb that does damage to any enemies within the stink. Also a good way to prevent someone from seeing through it.

Rocket Launcher: Takes a couple seconds to fire and has a cooldown. Not as overpowered as you might think but can be very effective when aimed properly.

Rocket Jump: Jump a high distance. Great for getting on rooftops or avoiding enemy fire.

Engineer: Close range Upgrades: Sonic Grenade that allows the engineer to stun anyone within the radius Other upgrades currently unknown

Scientist: Close range/Support Upgrades: Warp that allows the scientist to teleport a short distance in front of them Sticky bomb: a bomb that sticks Heal Station: Heals anyone within the radius

All-Star: Close to Middle range Upgrades: Tackle that rapidly sprints a short distance to hit the opponent for damage Shield: Acts as a barrier. It absorbs damage like the cactus' barrier. Imp Put: Launches an exploding imp at the opponent

So as you can see, the classes are quite random yet it seems to work well. I can't say I've seen plants or zombies win more games. It really depends on which team plays well together and can play their class. I feel the zombie healer is inferior to the sunflower's heals, but the zombies seem to have slightly better weapons all together. It's really difficult picking one class to play because they're all very fun. I just don't like the scientist, but I play him to offer support heals for my team.

Garden Warfare Review

mrminecrafter1 | June 24, 2014 | See all mrminecrafter1's reviews »

This game is pretty fun. Not made for hardcore gamers, so don't expect too much for this game. After all this game is marketed for casual shooters and children, so the game might not appeal to you. The artistic style and graphic fidelity of the game is wonderful. Sound design is excellent and the soundtrack barely loops. The game is fun to play, but only at short bursts of 1-2 hour sessions. Depth and customization is fairly limited compared to shooters like Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4. But I think it deserves the slide here. Overall this is a fairly fun game that you should get. But only at a discount.

ATTENTION PC GAMERS

vofenn | June 24, 2014 | See all vofenn's reviews »

First off, the game is fun, but as of launch, here are some issues you need to be aware of.

There is no way to mute your own Mic in game, you can mute other people (Every new person who joins the lobby must be muted additionaly). This is not good because I am constantly talking on Teamspeak, so I am basically adding white noise to the lobbies.

There is no in-game party system unless you count Garden ops which allows lobby play. As of this review me and my roomie could not play a single match together.

These issues may be fixed in the future, I will update this review accordingly.
