    It's fun, beginner-friendly and thanks to the addictive level-up mechanics it offers lots of replay value, too.

    Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 is a great online shooter with an unexpected wealth of single-player stuff, too.

    From a small game has grown a full-featured multiplayer action, that scores on almost all fronts. Only the single-player part could be more sophisticated. But the crazy game world and addictive gameplay will make it up for you.

    Characters and decorations are so colorful and lively that they fall just a few inches short of Pixar standards. It’s impossible to play GW2 with a hardcore competitive mindset, but it’s a great specimen of “shooters for all family”. [Issue#207, p.64]

After the initial (very) disappointment, I tried a few round of PvZ GW 2, the game offers so much fun, so many classes and sub-classes which I initially thought they were just cosmetically different, and I was wrong.

    Also to my surprise the game offers very well single player experience, apart from the missions, every multi-player modes are available for single play with AI bot, which is a huge plus for me. Now I simply cannot put the game down, and last time I had this feeling I was playing the Witcher 3.

    I pre-ordered Overwatch and joined the game on day one, but I did not find the game very interesting, the game was very well made, but was just not for me. Fortunately I found GW2, and I am glad I did.

    ADD SPLIT SCREEN PLEASE!!! It it not fair that PC is the only version without this feature!!!

You pay full price for the game, then if you want to stand a fair chance in multiplayer, you gotta pay even more. This coming from a fairly skilled player. The game intentionally screws you out of kills or it artificially bolsters your ability to get them; things like altering your movement speed, preventing your abilities from triggering or cranking up the aim sensitivity when making last moment adjustments before blasting off a zpg or shuck shot, making your imp punt overshot an enemy right in front of you or itll just stall on the ground 2 inches from where you kicked it, deliberately teleporting you or other characters into or out of a projectile's trajectory. Sometimes projectiles go right through enemies causing no damage, other times you vanquish people who just spawned with (obviously) full health in 2-3 low damage shots. The scripted interference goes both ways. There are times I've tested just to see the reticle chase an enemy across the screen while unloading on them hitting every shot without even touching the joysticks. There are so many times where you dont see an enemy until your dead or it's obvious an enemy can't see you acting completely oblivious as you slaughter them. The game is rigged, BAD, right now and not fun at all because of it. If it was actually FAIR without interference from EA's "dynamic difficulty adjustment/monetization" scripts it would be a blast, 10/10. But the way it is now is infuriating, it sucks, 1/10. Plan on it being even worse in gw3. EA destroys every franchise it touches. Expand
