    This games is very similar to the PC version so if you want to see what the fuss is all about you can download a trial PC version and give it a spin. If you like that you won't be disappointed with the DS version.
    I find the zombies hilarious and the plants a quite comical, it is a little bit repetitive despite some good efforts to have some special levels that are different to the normal

    I find the zombies hilarious and the plants a quite comical, it is a little bit repetitive despite some good efforts to have some special levels that are different to the normal place the plants and shoot the zombies. I measure a games success on how long I play before I lose interest; Plants vs. Zombies got about 2 hours game play so far (not that great) but for the novelty of having plants shoot down zombies this is pretty awesome!

    Nowhere near as good as on the PC and Mac, but still a great title if you are a fan of Nintendo and own a DS. Great for on the go/on holiday, so still reccomend you get it if you go on holiday yearly, or just love handheld gaming. Certainly better than Bejeweled 3, but not as good as Plants vs Zombies on the PC. Not bad PopCap!

    The game's many levels and wide variety of zombie-crushing activities represent good value for money. It's simple to play, highly addictive, and entertaining... and best of all, it's portable.

    In the end, Plants vs. Zombies is a very apt game on the Nintendo DS that successfully ports this franchise to this console. With perfect controls thanks to the stylus and the exact same gameplay you find on any of the other platforms, this is one game that DS users should investigate because casual gaming doesn't get any better than Plants vs. Zombies.

    Plants vs. Zombies has been well ported, the good concept of gameplay works on the NDS.
