  1. If you've never played Plants vs. Zombies before, then this is - wait for it - a no-brainer. The game is an amazing gigglefest of unbridled fun, overflowing with game modes and replayability.
  2. The simple truth is that Plants vs. Zombies on Xbox Live Arcade is one of the best values on the entire service.

    While I'd still point to the touch-enabled iPad edition as the definitive version of the game (thus far), Plants vs. Zombies makes a very impressive transition to Xbox Live Arcade.
  4. At 1,200 Microsoft points ($15), Plants vs. Zombies is a bit more expensive on the Xbox 360 than on the PC, where you can snag it from Steam for a mere $10. If you've never played the game, it is well worth the cost.
  5. Zombies are once again invading our garden in the Xbox Live Arcade version of Plants vs Zombies. And really, it is just as fun as ever and highly recommended to everyone.
  6. If you've never played PVZ before on any platform, then purchasing it is a no-brainer because it's hands down one of the best video games ever made for any platform.
  7. PopCap Games' best game and probably the best ever Tower Defence – and it works just as well as you'd hope on the Xbox 360.

    Plants vs. Zombies is filled with fun all over it. There are tons of plants, different kinds of zombies, and 6 different scenes. AdventurePlants vs. Zombies is filled with fun all over it. There are tons of plants, different kinds of zombies, and 6 different scenes. Adventure mode will take about 6-7 hours to finish, and extremely fun letters for you from the zombies themselves. You can play it with a friend. There are mini games, survival mode, and even a garden which you can store virtual plants in, including a tree that will give you tips if you give it food (that you get with money earned in-game in the shop, made by Crazy Dave - a great, fun character - and has some other stuff too). Plants vs. Zombies is like a delicious chocolate cake topped with fun and filled with great content. The only fault that I see in this game is the absence of online multiplayer, but overall, it is amazing. Expand

Big improvement in graphics, sound etc. The classic formula is well preserved with some new impressive twists. It's funny and fun. Those are all you could ask for with a game like this, really.

It has that elusivePlants vs. Zombies is charming and addictive, standing right up there with the best of PopCap's offerings like Peggle. It has that elusive "special something" that gets its hooks in you and convinces you to forego food, sleep, and other essentials just to see what the next level has in store. Even if you've already played through the game on PC or iPhone, the versus multiplayer mode is definitely worth checking out. Expand
