Plants vs. Zombies is a tower defense game in which a home owner uses different plants to battle zombies on his lawn. Its origins as a casual game are still visible, but the different game modes provide a lot of fun and keep the game from getting repetitive too early.

Ha! The good ol' times! I always played this back in my childhood. It was a fun experience for me. I loved the unique and creativity with the plants and zombies. This may not be one of those gruesome, bloody type of zombie games but I can admit this game is pretty cute. All you have to do is defend the survivor that lives in the house just by using plants.

This game has really good graphics, its really fun and addictive. You move onto different levels and it gets harder and harder each time since new types of zombies appear with its own fabulous abilities to escape the defenses of the plants.

10/10
