  1. If you've never played Plants vs. Zombies before, then this is - wait for it - a no-brainer. The game is an amazing gigglefest of unbridled fun, overflowing with game modes and replayability.
  2. The simple truth is that Plants vs. Zombies on Xbox Live Arcade is one of the best values on the entire service.

    While I'd still point to the touch-enabled iPad edition as the definitive version of the game (thus far), Plants vs. Zombies makes a very impressive transition to Xbox Live Arcade.
  4. At 1,200 Microsoft points ($15), Plants vs. Zombies is a bit more expensive on the Xbox 360 than on the PC, where you can snag it from Steam for a mere $10. If you've never played the game, it is well worth the cost.
  5. Zombies are once again invading our garden in the Xbox Live Arcade version of Plants vs Zombies. And really, it is just as fun as ever and highly recommended to everyone.
  6. If you've never played PVZ before on any platform, then purchasing it is a no-brainer because it's hands down one of the best video games ever made for any platform.
  7. PopCap Games' best game and probably the best ever Tower Defence – and it works just as well as you'd hope on the Xbox 360.

    Who can be afraid of zombies when they are trying to pogo stick over you? With amazingly catchy music and classic hand drawn cutesy graphics. This game is damn hard to put down

    Popcap Games always had a unique charm when it came to games, and PvZ is the culmination of their creations. It is difficult to make a gamePopcap Games always had a unique charm when it came to games, and PvZ is the culmination of their creations. It is difficult to make a game that's cute but not obnoxious, easy to play yet difficult to master, familiar yet completely original, and a joy to play time and time again.

    PvZ manages to pull this off with a Tower Defense spin so unique it deserves it's own new genre. Just make sure the zombies don't eat your brains!
