    All in all, it's a decent port of a great game that hasn't lost anything in it's translation to the PC.

    Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare brings to PC gamers a solid, frantic, fun multiplayer-based third person shooter experience.

    While this game might have the look and feel of a "family friendly" shooter, the reality is that the people playing it are of a standard to make it one for the shooter veterans who want a change of scenery from the brown wasteland battlegrounds.

    The freshest shooter to sprout in recent memory, PvZ is shackled by asinine DRM.

    Garden Warfare gives out a weird vibe. It has solid gameplay, cool look and almost no game-breaking bugs, but it doesn’t have a heart. As if even its creators did not care about their project and made it only because the higher management told them to.

As a big fan of the PVZ franchise, I was very curious to see what were coming. And the result, at least for me, is an instant success. Graphics are simply amazing running on 1080p on ultra, even with antialiasing set to high (and I play on a laptop with a gt 555m!), gameplay is very addictive, as different plants and zombies play in a unique way, sounds are very nice, the servers are working wonderfully (at least for now, while i'm writing this review). Overall a VERY polished game and for a little price for what it offers. There are several game modes, going from the classic deathmatch style, to garden ops (an up to 4 players coop where you can plant things to help you stop the zombies) and things like capture the gardens (like a capture the flag), and others. The replay value is incredible. Oh, and the game has a card store, that makes it freshier over time, as you unlock a LOT of things with it.

    I highly recommend it to anyone. Been a while since I had this fun playing an online shooter.

Although there are loads of character customisationsIn conclusion, this game has an amazing design with sharp colours and beautiful shadows. Although there are loads of character customisations with thousands of unlocks to achieve, gameplay sometimes feels tedious and repetitive but is easily overcome by trying a new gamemode. This game is completely different to anything I’ve ever played before; it feels brand new and energizing. If you’ve never looked at this game in detail, I heavily recommend you check it out! Expand

    Great game +9, lazy porting -2. Gameplay is solid and a good evolution for the franchise. Think a 3rd person, asymmetrical version ofGreat game +9, lazy porting -2. Gameplay is solid and a good evolution for the franchise. Think a 3rd person, asymmetrical version of Battlefield without vehicles. Unfortunately, mics are defaulted to transmit for everyone with no option for push-to-talk or to permanently turn off all voice chat. At the start of almost every match, you will be sonically assaulted with audio clutter including annoying white noise, slight feedback, or irritating chatting/music from players, some who don't even realize they are broadcasting. The quick fix is to mute everyone at the start of each match. And then again if anyone with an annoying mic joins in-game. And finally again in the between game lobby. This is the epitome of lazy porting even though there are multiple articles where devs deceptively claim this game will not be a simple port. There is no written chat function. You cannot create a party with friends in-game, it must be done out of game thru Origin. There are a handful of minor bugs, quality-of-life issues, and rare crashing even though the game was released almost half a year ago for consoles . Ultimately a fantastic and humorous shooter soiled by terrible porting and not enough polish. Expand
