A different kind of multiplayer shooterBlockAgent | Aug. 31, 2014 | See all BlockAgent's reviews »
Garden Warefare is a fresh take on the multiplayer shooter genre. It definitely looks, plays and vibes different than the usual troops in the desert war games that flood the market. It has a lot of personality too. All your favorite characters are included as well. While the game makes you happy in some ways, it disappoints in others. The controls feel very clunky and cumbersome. This makes aiming and dodging enemy attacks very slow and difficult. Despite the games different personality, there are no unique game play modes. There are just the usual capture the flag, team deathmatch, and hold the base for longer than your opponent modes. I think this game will be a hit with players 12 or younger, while it will leave adult gamers a little short handed.
Great Game!bclubdave | Aug. 20, 2014 | See all bclubdave's reviews »
Different than other PVZ games, but just as fun and addicting, if not more so. I like it because its just as fun for me as it is my seven year old, and we can play it together! Just good, clean fun. Strategy and many different ways to win make it fun while repeating the same scenes over and over.
Refreshing FPS Experience (Better with recent patch)Alco4real | July 29, 2014 | See all Alco4real's reviews »
Note: a recent patch has allowed microphone muting, new game modes, and enhanced group playing features.
PvZ Garden Warfare has a good mix of casual game play elements and challenges. While both the Plants and the Zombies have classes more suited for less skilled players, the availability of class variations allows you to play each class in a slightly different way and with a higher skill ceiling.
For example, the Pea Shooter has a large splash radius on his ranged attacks. You can play as the Toxic Pea instead to trade a smaller splash radius for a damage over time effect on your attacks.
These class variations are unlocked by collecting all the components (stickers) that you gain from card packs. You can spend small amounts of in-game coins for smaller amounts of common stickers, or you can save up for a bit to guarantee a new character unlock. Although these unlocks are random and therefore could be a class you rarely play, you gain coins at a fast enough rate to feel rewarded at the end of a play session (not like you are tirelessly grinding for coins) .
The game is mostly balanced, although many players tend to lean towards playing the Soldier/Peashooter which can lead to somewhat stale matches. If you play a variety of game modes however, you will see more class variation.
If you are a fan of the Plants vs Zombies franchise and/or a fan of FPS games, you really should pick this game up.

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 PvZ77Bottles | 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.
