Editors' Review

Plants vs Zombies is one of the most popular games on the Windows, iPhone, and iPad platforms, and now it's on the Mac. The goal of Plants vs Zombies is to stop zombies from marching across your lawn or roof and eating you. To defend yourself you have to put various plants in their way, each plant having special skills. Plants vs Zombies installs easily.

The plants in Plants vs Zombies get laid out on a grid. Some plants shoot peas, which injure zombies, some plants eat zombies, and so on. There's about a dozen different plants that can be used to defeat the oncoming hordes of zombies. As plants get eaten by the zombies, you can replant, but they take time to grow and react. And there's always the issue of affording the plants. To buy them you need to collect sunshine, and each plant costs a certain amount of sun. Sounds complicated? It isn't. Sounds weird? It is, but this is one of the most addictive games we've played, and replay is still strong. The music and effects are great, too.

The publishers of Plants vs Zombies have other highly popular games (Peggle, Zuma, etc.), but this is the classic that everyone knows. Play the free version for an hour and you'll likely be buying the full release with its hours and hours of play. It's still one of our favorite games on the iPad, and seeing it on the Mac is great.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Plants vs Zombies 1.0.40.

"Great the first few times you play"

December 28, 2011  |  By ashleigh_k

 |  Version: Plants vs Zombies 1.0

Pros

Addicting at first. easy to pick up, doesn't require a whole lot of skill.

Cons

Too easy to beat. Sound effects are annoying. Takes too long to get to the more challenging levels.

Summary

I loved this when I first got it, but I beat it quickly and then never weatned to play again because I had to start back at the easiest levels and play for hours in order to get to the fun stuff again.

"Great game, plays horribly on Mac"

October 10, 2011  |  By aerolizzie

 |  Version: Plants vs Zombies 1.0

Pros

The game is great fun, especially for people like me who don't like to get sucked in for hours at a time. The puzzle Vasebreaker is my mindless entertainment while I'm on hold on the phone, or when I have a couple of minutes to kill. Definitely addictive.

Cons

Plays like crap on the Mac. Never shuts down properly. And everytime I restart my computer, I have to enter a new license key in...finally I ran out of keys and got a message to "contact customer service" ... but PopCap's customer service stinks. The "nohwid" is an issue many mac users have, and PopCap hasn't done anything to fix it.

Summary

I like this game, and wish I could keep playing it...especially since I paid for it! I hope PopCap releases some sort of patch to get around this bug.

Don't make games for Mac at all unless you intend on making sure they work and supporting them!

"Crashes when it quits."

February 09, 2011  |  By Todd Templeton

 |  Version: Plants vs Zombies 1.0

Pros

Kids like it.

Cons

The game can't seem to quit. It either takes a very long time to quit, or it takes a very long time to quit and then (humorously) reports that it quit unexpectedly.

Summary

Clean up the dumb bugs (application's ability to quit without crashing?), then ask for compensation.

"Average, Not challenge"

June 02, 2009  |  By kevsmyname

 |  Version: Plants vs Zombies 1.0

Pros

Good fun, different strategies, different zombies adds a little bit of challenge

Cons

Too easy, demo doesn't give enough time to see if there's any depth in gameplay

Summary

An average, fun for a few hours game. From playing the demo its not worth 20!
