    the games adventure mode is extremely bad. it feels like work. but in the multi player you can play as the zombies so you can see how the zombie get in the house without losing but over all the game isn't that good

    Popcap's classic take on the tower defence genre finally hits Live Arcade . This is the same game that we've all played to death on PC / Mac / iPhone already , but it has to be said that playing on a giant TV in HD is something that will still bring a grin to the face - the gameplay is as sweet as ever and even if you've completed it on another platform , you'll enjoy playing through thePopcap's classic take on the tower defence genre finally hits Live Arcade . This is the same game that we've all played to death on PC / Mac / iPhone already , but it has to be said that playing on a giant TV in HD is something that will still bring a grin to the face - the gameplay is as sweet as ever and even if you've completed it on another platform , you'll enjoy playing through the game again . The controls really have been adapted well for the 360 gamepad , the use of the trigger buttons to 'suck' in the sunshine is an especially great touch . The big draw for some maybe the new multi player modes - while they are fun and welcome , the big news here is that they are local only - no play over xbox Live !
    If you've never played PvZ before - consider this an essential purchase - 9 / 10
    If you've seen it all before , then the local only multiplayer and high price of 1200 MS point will sting a little - 8/10

    This Xbox 360 has the best of the original game, solves the potential control problem, and adds as its main innovation the multiplayer mode.
