    Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville takes the foundation of the Garden Warfare series and expands upon it. No longer is the game just about competitive multiplayer, there’s now a wide variety of co-op activities for friends to play through. Whether you’re a fan of Garden Warfare, or new to the Plants vs Zombies series, there’s something for everyone in Battle for Neighborville.

    Outside of the server issues, I’ve certainly enjoyed my time spent with Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. It’s a solid follow-up to a unique shooter series that I don’t think gets enough attention, and if you haven’t given this series a shot yet, this would certainly be a good jumping on point. It’s a nice alternative to the more serious multiplayer shooters out there and even serves up a solid alternative to more like-minded games like Overwatch. You may want to give it a little time to iron out some flaws here and there, but definitely check it out when you get a chance.

    Plants vs. Zombies Battle for Neighborville is a beautiful title. We have fun online with different modes of play. Teamplay is important but playing alone s not be the key to success. A time of adaptation is required to master the game and its gameplay. There are a lot of things to do in the game and the title takes on a more significant scale when played with friends. A good surprise in short.

    Oozing with things to do and inventive classes to do them with, it elevates the act of shooting plants and zombies to fresh heights. [Issue#169, p.97]

    Considered that "Variants" has been completely taken away, and "Abilities" are simplified, Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville definitely failed some expectations, but now it is more rookie-friendly. We can still have tons of fun within, thanks to the new characters and maps.

    Battle for Neighborville doesn't go out of its way to surpass expectations, but it's a silly, strange, joyful game – one I'm glad was greenlit.

    While the art, gameplay and music are fine, it feels like EA made a game so exclusively for children that their parents won't want to play it with them, leaving them to be influenced alone. Even if you can tolerate the tone and have the wherewithal to not spend too much money on DLC, Neighborville is fine. It just won't be your best purchase EVAR.

PVE is such a leap from the previous games with epic bosses and hilarious quests. The new characters are great additions especially the combiner characters (acorn and space cadet). Battle Arena rocks and scratches that competitive itch.

    I hope they add new characters or variants down the road

The PCThis game would be great if there wasn't such horrible optimization on PC, the consoles versions seem to work fine in this department. The PC version of this game sucks a lot, random crashes textures, not loading in, not to mention the program which you must download (Origin) sucks aswell, it also has randomly crashed on me and takes for ever to download a game; for example, I have a 250 mpbs download plan and the program for somereason downloads the game at between 10-15 MBs which is no where near my 250 mpbs plan. If you're thinking my internet is just busted I checked online and other programs like steam and they seemed to be working fine giving me around 35-45 MBs. The FPS on this game is horrible don't get me wrong I can get over 144 FPS on this game is just very hard to get above that this game is very demanding even with low settings also random FPS drops. There is also a lot of limitations in the settings at least of PC like the game can only cap the FPS at 30 and 60, I've never seen anybody play at a 30 FPS cap don't even know why that's there. The game itself is very fun I have to admit but the optimzation is what ruins it aswell as the origin app. Expand
