    Online and locally, alone or with strangers, with one friend or with a group of friends, there is no shooter as accommodating as Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. This is my game. It does not belong to someone else’s conception of fair play, of narrow restrictive grinding, of recognizing skill or merit or enforcing something so ridiculous as fairness among people who want different things from their games. Here is a great shooter you can play the way you want, enjoying all its benefits in full alongside everyone else. Now that Electronic Arts has arrived here, it’s time for everyone else to catch up.

    Yeah, it’s a full-priced, online multiplayer game (which can be a tough sell), but it’s one that’s jam-packed with content from a developer that’s been typically generous with delivering new updates and support.

    Ten times the colours, ten times the content... if you don't mind a bit of repetitiveness every now and then, you'll love this sequel.

    It’s not as exciting and refreshing as two years ago, but that’s not too big a complaint when it’s more co-op defence and liberally borrowed and adapted multiplayer, all slathered in the quirky Plants vs. Zombies universe.

    Overflowing with new content, offers much more for soloists, and is just as hilarious as ever. Garden Warfare 2 is not to be underestimated. [May 2016, p77]

    With its less-than-full-price and short list of features, the first Garden Warfare felt like EA wasn't willing to risk much on the odd idea of turning a cutesy mobile free-to-play tower defense game into a console online shooter. It feels like a little piece of cosmic justice that while the Medal of Honor reboot failed to make any inroads with that audience, Garden Warfare somehow became a runaway success that warranted a full-priced, fully featured sequel.

    When it comes to character diversity, Garden Warfare 2 outclasses other shooters in every way.

    Platina N*21-Plants vs Zombies:Garden Warfare 2

    Plants vs Zombies:Garden Warfare 2 e o segundo jogo da franquia Garden Warfare
    e nessa sequencia temos finalmente algo que e sempre bem-vindo em um jogo,uma
    campanha offline e novos personagens,três em cada lado,no lado das plantas temos
    o novo personagem chamado coronel milho com suas rajadas de milhos,e junto
    com ele tambem veio a magica rosa com sua incrivel habilidade de transformar
    seus inimigos em cabras(ate as cabras tem um moveset nesse jogo),e junto com eles tambem
    veio o incrivel citrinador com seu laser acido.Mas o lado dos zombies não fica atras nesse
    quesito ja que eles tambem ganharam novos três pesrsonagens,o incrivel supermioloz e seus
    raios heroicos,o capitão barbamorta e seu fiel papagaio e por ultimo o pequeno zumbinho
    e o seu grande robo-z.

    Com uma grande variedades de itens tanto de cosmeticos quanto de novos personagens,plants
    vs zombies ce torna um jogo com muitas tarefas e objetivos para ce fazer,como as missoes
    principais de cada equipe que mesmo sendo curta as campanhas são muito divertidas,podendo
    explorar o mapa principal,torna as coisas ainda mais legal ja que nesse mapa aonde fica
    localizado as duas principais bases,ficam expalhados varias missoes secundarias onde você
    pode conseguir muito xp e varios segredos envolvendo gnomos estranhos.

    Ja o multiplayer e bastante equilibrado entre as duas equipes o que e algo muito bom
    de um jogo que possui varios personagens onde nenhum tem vantagem muito grande sobre o
    outro,o bom tambem e que você pode jogar os modos e os mapas multiplayer contra bots
    ce você não quiser jogar com outras pessoas.Tendo varios mapas o modo multiplayer
    ce torna algo bastante divertido de jogar com os amigos ou sozinho contra pessoas ou bots

    O que eu tenho pra falar agora sobre plants vs zombies:garden warfare 2 e que ele e
    um jogo muito divertido de jogar sozinho ou com um amigo online ou em tela dividida,e tambem e
    um jogo com muitos aventuras e segredos para serem descobertos.

    DIF:8/10
    Nota:7/10

    This is a quality game, however, it unfortunately takes advantage of the ignorance of casual gamers and implements always-online drm. Even theThis is a quality game, however, it unfortunately takes advantage of the ignorance of casual gamers and implements always-online drm. Even the solo content requires an internet connection. Many short-sighted people mistakenly believe the complaints about this are due to a lack of internet access, so if you have internet you have nothing to worry about. The problem with this is actually that it transforms what could be a quality game to add to your collection to play forever, into a glorified rental that, given the reputation of the publisher, will only be playable for 2-3 years before it becomes nothing but fond memories. Publishers are counting on this, because in theory if you are unable to play the old game, you have more incentive to buy the new one. They also do this to ensure that no tampering can be done with the premium game's free-to-play currency system, which is an insult to gamers that remember the days when those "services" were obtainable not through real world money, but through cheat codes, which were free to everyone. So if you are willing to spend $60 on a disc that will eventually become nothing but a drink coaster and treats you like you didn't even buy the game in the first place, expecting you to pay more after the fact, go right ahead and buy it. But if you value the ability to go back and play your favorite games whenever YOU feel like doing so, and games that allow you to relax in an alternate world instead of requiring you to create a budget for ingame spending, avoid it at all costs.
