    Battle for Neighborville: Complete Edition is a fun, colorful, silly game with a good amount of content to keep the player busy. While the game is older, this updated version is the obvious choice for fans of the series and newcomers alike.

    Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville brings a fun and addictive online multiplayer mode to Nintendo Switch, which is definitely worth it. We can see low resolution on certain occasions, although it is still a highly recommended and totally enjoyable title.

    If you’re looking for a family-friendly multiplayer shooter on the Switch, make sure to check this one out. It doesn’t shine on the technical side as much as on the other platforms, but it still plays great.

    For its part, therefore, the Nintendo Switch version offers a more timeless title thanks to the addition of an Offline mode which may no doubt appeal to younger players. The portable aspect of Nintendo's hybrid console is also a plus that shouldn't be taken lightly, especially as Plants Vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville allows for short play sessions.

    This isn’t a perfect port to Nintendo Swich, but it’s certainly an impressive one considering the game’s size and Plants vs. Zombies remains as fun to play as it ever was. If you’re looking for a fun hero shooter with plenty of content to sink your teeth into (no zombie-related pun intended) then Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville Complete Edition might just be the game for you.

    Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville is a shooter for all ages, from the most seasoned in titles like Battlefield, Call of Duty, or Overwatch, to the newcomers who see their great opportunity to take on a shooter like their parents or older siblings. This Complete Edition brings new content to the game which makes it highly rewarding having it's place in the market taken back to where it belongs. Although the port is not 100% up to par in the visual field, it guarantees infinite hours of gameplay filled with pure joy and competition. It becomes more than clear: plants and zombies are lifelong enemies.

    Unless you really want to see an ear of walking corn fire machine gun rounds at a zombie dressed as a football player, Plants Vs. Zombies: Battle For Neighborville is far from the best option for a multiplayer shooter on the Switch.

    Offline mode offers many quests through the cptwo cities offered also theres many multiplayer modes to be played offline with bots.

    Only downside to this game is you need Nintedo .switch online account.

    If you played the previous garden warfare games you will love it

    Many modes from games like call of duty are here,

    Kill confirmed, domination, plant the bomb, team death match
    Frame rate is decent and theres hardly any lag

So that it is "no" death game more. Still, it's a great game. Expand
