    Plants vs. Zombies is great fun, and is one of those games that will have you playing just one more level until you find that you've played for another hour or more.

    There's a reason PopCap has ported this game to almost every platform under the sun, and its embrace of zombiemania only hints at it. As with brains this is delicious. [April 2011, p.78]

    While I'd be hesitant to recommend it to hardcore FPS players, gamers looking for an easy going way to unwind should have quite a bit of fun with PvZ on PSN.

    The huge amount of plants and the various zombies are the right ingredients for a good tower defense game.

    Only minus the satisfying touch-screen interaction. [Apr 2011, p.118]

Extremely addicting, several mini-games, a good soothing challenge for those tired of the mainstream FPS or any other media that's usually pushed down our throats to buy. This is a buy, because of its originality in an already infested zombie media. I give the game a solid 9, because of its co-op, multiplayer, and addicting single player campaign. Don't waste your buck, if you think you'd get bored, because its a strategy game, and often you find doing the same thing over and over; otherwise a great entry to PSN. Expand

    What do you get when your mutated garden is your only defense from the undead, this game!
    Right away, I gotta admit, I didn't like this at first, simply because the levels start out slow and the night levels were boring at first. However, as you progress into the game, the challenge ramps up and you have to think on your toes.

    Probably one of the best tower defense games out there, that has lots of extra modes that are a nice distraction from the main game. Pop Cap made some pretty fun games, in the past and this is one of their crowning jewels.

    Overall: A great game that starts slow, but builds up fast. LOTS OF FUN, once you get into it!

Su mayor éxito, y en lo personal el mejor de todos los juegos casuales hasta la fecha. Un videojuego de estrategia que combina un buen humor y una gran banda sonora, con una jugabilidad IMPECABLE. Quizá muchas personas lo noten bastante fácil, pero el modo en el que se aprovechan todas las mecánicas jugables es en el modo supervivencia. Aquí es donde tenes que armar y aprovechar estrategias con tus 49 plantas!!! Ademas de que esta versión es mejor que la versión de PC en todos los sentidos, incluyendo mejores gráficos y mas contenido a un juego que ya lo tenia. El modo multijugador es una pasada, aunque es una lastima que solo sea local y no tenga modo online. Tambien he notado que la versión de PS3 es mas fácil que la versión de PC, ya que tenes los arbustos para predecir el movimiento de los Zombis (especialmente útil en los niveles de niebla), y te suelen dar muchas mas plantas para el jardín zen, cosa que te proporcionara muchísimo mas dinero. Aunque esto puede ser ya que hay mas objetos en la tienda, como la posibilidad de comprar y mejorar tu casa. Si ya jugaste la versión de PC y te gusto, o directamente no lo jugaste en ninguna plataforma te recomiendo que te pases a esta versión. Las mejoras en la jugabilidad y el contenido hacen que valga la pena! Expand
