    PopCap Games didn’t just recapture their old thunder, they magnified it to Zeus-like proportions. The quirky series from three years ago has managed to become a masterclass example in value.

    The fun of the original title is still here but has been amplified with the addition of new maps and classes.

    I feel sorry for Garden Warfare 2. It’s a great game (right now the best utilizing Frostbite 3 engine) that probably will be dismissed contemptuously by those too “adult” to shoot corn kernels at zombies. [04/2016, p.38]

    Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 has a massive amount of rich, entertaining and wacky content for players to enjoy. I know I’ll be spending another 30 hours on Garden Ops alone, but EA has managed to bring some interesting, new ingredients that help make this series as fun and addicting, as it was the first time around.

    Less of a sequel and more of a big expansion, but that’s not a bad thing.

    Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 offers tons of content that don't necessarily drive people intro micro-transactions. Lighthearted and colourful, it never punishes the player and it's only held back by its limited narrative and unfair progression system.

    Despite its pretty environments and swollen production value, Garden Warfare 2 feels a lot like its smartphone cousins, less a videogame, in the noble sense, and more a tar pit, swallowing down your time and providing little in return but useless virtual tat.

It got me through so mu years of high school. It definitely was it's predecessor to gw1 but that's because it improved upon the game. Variants, gun play, story, and game modes. Story mode is a bit off. But I still loved the missions. Infinity time is amazing solo, or with friends. This game is a must play. Expand

The new characters, maps, and overall feel of the game make it feel as though great strides have been made while keeping the same sense of familiarity as the first game in the series.
    While I did not find the single player modes to be all that interesting, the multiplayer experience was excellent. I found myself sticking to the multiplayer only and ignoring the bland signle player modes.
    Controls were find, AI was ok ( a bit aggressive), and graphics were exactly what was expected.
