Editors' review

Plants vs. Zombies is a game by PopCap in which you have to plant various species of flowers in your garden to keep the zombies at bay. Whether you're nailing them with Pea Shooters, blowing them up with Cherry Bombs, or running them over with your lawn mower, those zombies don't stand a chance.

Pros

Good introduction: When you first open the app, you can jump right into playing, as the app walks you through the first few levels. This way, you'll get the basics down quickly and can continue to apply them as the levels increase in difficulty, and more variables are introduced.

Nice graphics: The characters in this game are cartoony, but well detailed and fun. Just about every element of the game is moving almost the whole time, slowly swaying to the eerie music playing in the background, which sets the perfect tone for the game's action.

Cons

Slow loading: The game is a little slow loading, probably because of the high-quality graphics. But once it gets going, it runs smoothly.

Timed trial: When you download Plants vs. Zombies, you have one hour to try it for free. To keep playing after that, you'll have to purchase the full version for $6.99.

Bottom Line

Plants vs. Zombies is engaging, bordering on addictive, with tons of levels for you to work your way through. It would be nice if the free trial period was a bit longer, but it shouldn't take you long to get a feel for the game and decide whether it's something you'd like to spend money on.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Plants vs. Zombies 1.3

    Version: Plants vs. Zombies 1.3

    Pros

    Easy and quick.

    Cons

    Easy and quick.

    Summary

    It is entertaining for the first 20 minutes or so then loses its appeal for those seeking a more detailed game. This game is appropriate for the short attention span kids/adults.

    incredibly addictive game, simple game but fun.

    so far i have not run into any cons, but i can see this game becoming slightly boring after a while.

    I think that anyone like a teenager and over can pick this game up and learn this in a very short time. people will be playing this game for a long time to come. I have never been disappointed by a PopCap Game, and this one prevailed, i played this game for about 2 - 3 weeks for a couple house a day and i am just now finding my self bored. Great Game

    "A suitable game for different-ages of human. Nice game."

    January 27, 2011   |   By peishanc

    Version: Plants vs. Zombies 1.3

    Pros

    The arrange of characters espiecially in Plants, like Sunflower for producing Sunlight, Plants for attacking, and some exploding mines! Special, and brilliant! The controls, easy get handed, so I think a toddler until a grandpa will addict on this?

    Cons

    The vampires made me feel embarassing, LOL. And maybe if Im keep playing on this I will be bored, it seems like repeating and repeating and repeating, am I right? I can't pay it because Im still haven't get myself hired.

    Summary

    Just try. :) U will be entertained in this few 30minutes.
