    The same excellent game it has always been,but at a very high price.The touch screen works fine with this version but if you've played it on any other system,then you don't need this.

    PvsZ its an interesting choice for PS Vita users , and its better when you haven't played any of the other versions of the game in the other systems . While the Vita version has a nice gimmick , for example , tilting adds a little of flexible game-play and little bit easier . Consider the game a worthy one but ignoring the price tag of $14.99.

    While the price tag is a bit too high for my tastes, the game is still fun and exciting. It looks sharp and runs admirably and controls relatively nice, tilting the Vita to gather sun and coins is a fantastic feature that's never forced on you. There are a few control hiccups but nothing that got in my way of enjoying the game.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. My suggestions for picking levels are:

    It should be a level you feel comfortable clearing. There’s no point in making this hard on yourself. Personally, I suck at the “memory” game with the zombie camels in Ancient Egypt if you’re good at this minigame, you can kill a lot of zombies quickly, though.
    Try to find levels where there are lots of zombies quickly. For instance, levels that use the conveyor belt to give you plants instead of buying them for sun tend to ramp up quicker. Normal levels tend to take a couple of minutes before you’re killing zombies at any appreciable rate.
    Pick a level in the same era that you need keys in. As I said before, keys only work in the era you win them in, so don’t make the silly mistake of grinding in Ancient Egypt when you need keys in Pirate Seas.

    Again, keys are relatively rare, so plan to spend a good amount of playtime earning each one.

    However, if you play a lot of Plants vs Zombies 2, maybe you also like plants vs zombies softs toys, I think toyswill .com is good ,you can browse it

    An amazing game that rightfully deserved to be ported for the Vita, and has been done so superbly probably making it the best version due to its many extras and features (tilt to collect suns and coins). The problem is the inexcusable price which is downright ridiculous when it is available on most other platforms for a fraction of the price.

The problem is the inexcusable price which is downright ridiculous when it is available on most other platforms for a fraction of the price. Unfortunately, the features that make this the definitive version just aren't enough to warrant the hefty price tag. You will be better of waiting for a price drop before picking this one up, but when you do, I can promise you the game will not disappoint. Collapse

    A great version of the now-ubiquitous game, this is definitely worth a bite, so long as you can stomach the price.

    Players in it for the Trophies may find the price worth it, but most will be satisfied with the version they probably already own. [May 2012, p.77]

    Anyone who has already played this tower defense game on the iPad will agree that it's one the most addicting downloadable games ever. The setup is simple: protect your home from vast hordes of zombies using all different kinds of veggies, plants and weeds plucked straight from your garden. [April 2012, p.101]
