Editors' Review

+

Plants vs. Zombies is a fun, funny, and remarkably well-designed game that should prove addictive for newcomers to tower-defense games, as well as challenging and satisfying to serious fans of this real-time-strategy subgenre. The interface and gameplay start out simply: you must plant seeds, collect sunlight, and tend a gridded garden that is your only defense against ravenous waves of the cartoonish undead. Zombies advance right to left in rows, and you have to decide which kind of plants to use and where to put them, whether you choose sunflowers to accelerate sunlight production or a variety of other plants to shoot, chomp, freeze, block, or otherwise frustrate the zombies.

From here, the game gets crazy-good (not to mention addictively rewarding), by endlessly tweaking this basic recipe on almost every single level, over time adding 49 kinds of plants, 26 kinds of zombies (from basic brain-eaters on up to pole-vaulters and Michael Jackson lookalikes), different rules for day and night, and a play grid that eventually includes a swimming pool and then even moves to your home's slanted roof--and that's just the 50-level Adventure mode. Plants vs. Zombies also includes Survival and Puzzle modes, 20 surprisingly good minigames (which let you do everything from fight invisible zombies to switch places and take on the plants), and a relaxing (but still useful in game terms) "Zen Garden."

Overall, this is an excellent game at a good price, with many interesting qualities and few flaws. Plants vs. Zombies is a must-buy for fans of tower-defense games, and even casual Mac gamers should check out the 60-minute demo.

"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!
