    With all the playtime, all the free updates, all the unique class-changing items, and the online community that will surely stick with the game post-launch you’d have trouble finding a game with much more to offer.

    When all is said and done, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is just a delightful game, and a ton of fun to play with friends.

    Gripes aside, if you are looking for a colourful, fun and humorous shooter, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare should fit the bill nicely.

    Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is surprisingly adept at multiplayer mayhem and character balanced, making for a seriously enjoyable diversion from military shooter ad nauseum.

    Casual shooter's perfect example. Playstation 4's version, with most of the additional content available to date, finally gives the feeling of a complete game, contrary to it's first release. Limitless fun with crowded games. A perfect option for both old and young gamers.
  7. There's just too much wrong at the grass roots level. [Nov 2014, p.92]

I loved Plants Vs Zombies 1 & 2 on mobile/console and when I saw this, I knew it was going to be good. It's a very stable online 3rd person shooter and boy is it fun. 4 characters with unique customization makes this game a blast. Also the achievements and all the free content EA gave out was amazing! It's really addicting and the amount of respawning is fun. Expand

PvZ is a perfect multiplayer game for anyone who likes a little competition with a laugh. The only downside about this game is having to complete challenges to rank up instead of just earning xp to rank up. The challenges can get pretty tough. Expand

I liked the original PVZ games but hadn't brought into this new shoot em up version. Then it was released as a free download with PSN+ this month.

    Now picking it up for free rather than paying £15-£20 2nd hand may be a cop out but let me say that I have been soooooo surprised by this game. My two boys old enough to play (5 and 7) have not stopped playing this game. They absolutely love it and I love being able to play this game with them.

    The 4 main type of plants or zombies that you can choose from can then be customised and different varieties of each are available providing great replay appeal.

    The game is clearly aimed at a younger audience which considering it was launched soon after the next gen hardware launched was maybe why it didn't sell too well at retail. Consider that most people that buy into next gen hardware are adults with disposable income and not children.

    However this game really is worth getting, chargeable extras in the game (coins) are very reasonably priced which you then spend on sticker packs (again highlighting that this is aimed at a younger audience) which work a little like a football world cup sticker book in that you need all the stickers related to a plant to then get that character in the game.

    Areas to improve....
    split screen is limited to only 1 mode so my 2 kids can't play the main campaigns together although you can choose to do this solo or online with friends so i can't see why they left out a local split screen option.

    multiplayer modes restricted to team deathmatch, survival/horde mode and multiplayer campaigns.

    overall however this is a solid game and most importantly has enabled the family to play together. now where are those brainzzzzz!

    Why am I giving this a 0/10? Why? There is a reason why. It's a online multiplayer only. Because it's on PS4, you need to pay a $59.99Why am I giving this a 0/10? Why? There is a reason why. It's a online multiplayer only. Because it's on PS4, you need to pay a $59.99 subscription to PS+! Also, it's $39.99 to buy. If you want a shooter that isn't expensive, get Blacklight Retribution. You can play online for free, AND IT IS FREE. I got this game when it was free and am glad I didn't have to pay $39.99 to play it. If you want it, get it on PC, I am sure playing online is free there. Expand
