5.0 out of 5 stars Addicting (Game of the Year!!!!!) 26 April 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Its got the status Game of the Year for a reason. From when you start playing you have a variety of plants to fight off a variety of different zombies who are attacking your house. Each level it gets more difficult with different plants and zombie types being discovered. You have a neighbour called "crazy dave" and believe me he is a very unique individual who packs a few laughs. Oh also lastly the main game has seperate mini games, so technically for this small very nice price tag your getting more than just 1 game

5.0 out of 5 stars The food bites back! 20 Jun. 2011
By Sam Quixote TOP 50 REVIEWER
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Zombies are trying to get into your house to eat your brains - how will you stop them? By planting an assortment of fighting plants on your front lawn, backyard, and roof of course! And you'll need all kinds because the zombies range from your garden variety (yuk yuk yuk) type who shuffles along, to the kind that are dressed in American football gear, drive zambonis, bungee jump from the sky, or stomp forwards in goliath form with a mini-Salacious-Crumb-type zombie catapulting itself from its back!

"Plants Vs Zombies" is one of the most addictive games I've ever played. The kind of addictiveness that came from real-time strategy games like Command & Conquer and WarCraft but with more basic, colourful graphics. You use the same kind of tactics from those games - plant your sunflowers to gather sunlight (the currency in this game) to "buy" fighting plants that shoot peas, lob sweetcorn and melons, and block paths with walnuts, or whatever type of plant you need to take down the different types of zombie.

Magnificently structured, each level adds some new element that keeps you going through to the next. I bought the game on a Saturday lunchtime and finished it by Sunday teatime, looking up from the screen to discover I'd missed the entire weekend! But I didn't mind because it's been years since I've become so engrossed in a game like this, and it was all rendered in simple 2D rather than the flashy 3D games coming out today.

The mini-games add hours more playing time. There's also survival mode, puzzle mode, you can create your own "zen garden", create your own "zombatar", and replay the "adventure" mode with added difficulties. Put simply, for the price you pay (in my case the online download was little more than a sandwich at M&S) you get hours and hours of entertainment. Utterly addictive and incredibly enjoyable and fun, "Plants Vs Zombies" has to be played to be believed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant fun 26 Feb. 2011
By Chinatown Blue TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had the original P vs Z and loved every minute of it; a great, funny casual game. The Game of the Year edition has some good extra content, and I found it definitely worth upgrading. The Zombatars (customised zombie avatars) are not that customisable, but your avatars pop up leading the zombie swarms in the gameplay and can be used as avatars on websites. The achievements are fun and I am enjoying trying for them (and I advise you to scroll down to the bottom of the achievements screen, beyond the actual achievement, for an amusing little extra by the makers). I was sad the dancing zombie has been changed from the Michael Jackson lookalike to a generic Disco Stu type, but I understand that was due to complaints from Jackson's legal team. If you liked the original, I would certainly recommend this, and if you never played it - this is one of the best casual games around. Fun, challenging, and with a terrific sense of humour.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brain eating habits! 13 May 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Great fun and extremely habit forming. You just can't stop trying to survive! I'm not long into playing and yet have already lost my brains, to man eating zombies more time than I can count.
Good fun, good graphics, very good value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulously inventive 16 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
What a great game! Fabulously inventive, hilarious and with lots of extras outside the main game Plants v Zombies kicks into touch most games 10 times the price. From the loading screen to the wonderful end credits this game will have you hooked. Don't expect to get near your computer if your family and friends discover it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Package 28 Oct. 2011
By Neal
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The basic game is actually quite short but what you do get is a vast array of add-ons which give the game a depth you wouldn't imagine it could have at first sight. For example, having completed the adventure levels, you don't just play them again from scratch - there are differences like your mad neighbour choosing some of the plants you have to use. There are also dozens of enhancements you can buy with money you pick up during the game and a Zen garden that you can nurture for extra goodies. The puzzle and challenge levels provide a lot of variety as well.

The graphics are fairly crude, but as this is an "arcade-style" game, that isn't necessarily a criticism. The one thing I didn't like is that the game doesn't support wide-screen monitors on PCs, so if you've got one, you have to put up with black strips down the sides of the screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most fun you can have legally! 5 May 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game for a filler until games I want come out, but I am now totally addicted to it! The game is sheer genius, it seems simple, but the variations in it are numerous, and it gets pretty tricky the further you go on.
The zombies are hilarious, and come in all shapes and sizes and various kinds of transport. The game starts at an easy level, then gradually gets harder, as well as the main games, there are loads of mini games and a zen garden where you can grow your own plants.
This game is so much fun, I urge you to buy it, for the price it is brilliant.
I would say that the 12 certificate is about right, as it would be too difficult for young children, as great dexterity and fast reflexes are needed at higher levels.
