Great tower defence style game where plants meet zombies, in hope to defend your home with the right plants. Have to say this game can be addictive, and a good time killer if you feel like just mucking around for abit. Give it a 8 out of 10, wouldve liked if the missions were harder

This game is an instant classic. Though it may not be as challenging as other tower defence games, it certainly makes up for it with its charm. Partnered with an amazing soudtrack composed by Laura Shihira it's a must have for any gamer, no matter what age or preference in games

Would it be possible to add Plants vs Zombies 2 for Stream. Even though this one is very fun, but it is pretty short. Plants vs Zombies 2 offers alot more worlds.

What is there to say that already hasn't been said?

The game is amazing and offers a ton of replay value despite each stage being almost identical. Once you figure out the format for victory it is almost assured if you don't mess up, and even then, the game is pretty forgiving.

The hardest part in the game are the mini-games and puzzels with adventure mode being mostly just a tutorial in how to play the other two modes.

But you know what? ♥♥♥♥ this game and ♥♥♥♥ PopCap for turning into money hungry ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s. This is one of those games that could have had amazing sequel after amazing sequel for all platforms, but instead they opted to sell out to EA and release a micro-transaction nightmare of a sequel for mobiel devices. This is what we get when people sell out. A great first product with hope for something more, then a big fact "♥♥♥♥ YOU" to the fans, with nothing but ♥♥♥♥ afterwords.
