CNET Editors' review
Plants vs. Zombies surprises its users with its gorgeous graphics and onscreen directions that help you get familiar with the app and focus on enjoying the entertainment. Its clean, simple, and easy-to-understand interface with its care for details will drag each gamer into the world of plants and zombies from the very beginning.
We liked how the game scenario makes you hungry for more levels. The great introduction for first-time players with the first levels of the game and the feelings of success are among the key incentives that will drive you to the next level. When you defeat the evil zombies of one level, you'll automatically advance to the next. On each level you now have more and more tools to keep your house safe. And you'll definitely enjoy keeping that house defended from those evil faces. However, as you advance, the challenges get more difficult and the speed of the zombie invasion increases as well. In other words, we loved the way the game is designed.
However, the app comes with several limitations besides the $2.99 price. To start, you can only play the Adventure mode, which comes with the price paid. In order to play other modes you need to unlock those levels.
The bottom line is that we loved the graphics, and how the game scenario contributes to excitement and finally to relief; your reward for great performance is another tool for keeping zombies away.
Plants vs. Zombies is a great game for any level of user. There is no learning curve, as you'll be guided throughout the app to be successful and enjoy being entertained.

"Best Game on iPhone so far!"
Version: Plants vs. Zombies 1.3
-Interface/Controls perfect for iPhone/iPod Touch
-Pacing is great
-Has good level of difficulty, but also humor throughout
-No real complaints
-Would be awesome to see more levels in a future update, but the levels provided are more than fair for the price
The bottom line is that I've played over 100 games made for the iPhone/iPod Touch, and this is the best one by a decent margin. Hands down better than Angry Birds or any of the most popular games on the platform.
