About This Game

Armed with an alien nursery-worth of zombie-zapping plants like peashooters and cherry bombs, you'll need to think fast and plant faster to stop dozens of types of zombies dead in their tracks.

  • Earn 49 powerful perennials and collect coins to buy a pet snail, power-ups and more!
  • Open the Almanac to see all the plants and zombies, plus amusing “facts” and quotes
  • Browse Crazy Dave’s shop for special plants and tools to stem any zombie assault

Liked: It's easy to understand how to play! There were a lot of levels and achievements to unlock that makes my money's worth. I also liked how there are mini games to play if you're really not feeling story mode.


Disliked: Other than waking up the snail in the garden every now and again, there's not much I have to complain about.


Recommendation: Definitely play it if you're looking for tower defense games while waiting for something else to load. A great in-between game.

Great casual tower defense/strategy game. I've played probably 50 hours of Plants vs Zombies all up and enjoyed myself the whole time. For $5 that is great value, and with even the slightest discount it's all the more worth it. Lots of content, pretty sweet art/music. Plants. Zombies. The whole nine yards basically. You'd be silly not to finish this game once imo.

Tower defense terbaik dan paling adiktif.
Game casual terbaik dan paling adiktif.
Salah satu game zombie paling unik dan menarik
Salah satu game yang entah sudah berapa kali aku menyelesaikannya.
Metacritic rating 87/10. Nilai dari gue pribadi 9/10

Satu hal patut disayangkan, game ini tidak mendapat update untuk fitur HD resolution seperti halnya versi X360 dan PS3. Plants vs Zombies steam masih berjalan di resolusi 800 x 600. Tapi tetap gameplay adalah nomor satu, sekaligus alasan terbesar kenapa aku membeli versi orinya dan akan segera memainkannya lagi.

This game is great. If you havent played it yet I honestly can't recommend it more. I've played everything in it all the way though about 2 times and now that I noticed I had it on steam and didn't have all the achievements after not playing it since it was new (on my xbox360 & old disk non-steam version) I decided to go back and do it all again and it is just as enjoyable the third time around maybe even more so since I kind of remember the old strategies and tricks that worked and then adding to them & trying new stuff to make it more fun and take a slightly different approach. If you've played Bejeweled, Peggle, or any other Pop Cap games then you should know how simply fun and addictive their games can be this might be the best game they've put out ... now it's less than $2USD so if u want a game where u can kick back and waste a buncha time killing zombies with plants I definitely think you should check it out ... fun for all ages.

Having just bought this classic during the sale, I was dishearted when it refused to launch.

A few quick searches led me to others having problems running the game.

Having tried serveral different workarounds and "fixes" finally I spotted this one comment on the steam thread I was reading.

If you have a monitor with G-Sync and this is enabled, the game will crash on launch. Disable G-Sync for C:\programdata\popcap games\plantsvszombies\popcapgame1.exe in NVIDIA Control Panel > 3D Settings > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings.
Origin version has the same problem and can be fixed in a similar way, so it is not a Steam problem.

Just wanted to share my solution if anybody else still plays this game :)

So a big THANK YOU! for getting my game running KTC

Once I had the game running I had to disable "3D Acceleration" in the game options to stop the black side panels strobing.

Still a great game. 10/10

Man, me and Plants VS. Zombies go way back. I love it so much! It might be an old (and dare I say wierd) game but it's definitely well worth the money if you haven't gotten the chance to try it!

If you are vegan, this game will be perfect for you! No animals will get hurt. Cabbages, pea, corn, pepper and potatoes get hurt instead! Oh, and you hurt zombies using them, too.

This game is truly amazing, those who say its bad, They truly didnt live in the mario/old ages, Those people, SUCK FOREVER. Listen, if you were holding plants vs zombies and call of duty i would pick plants vs zombies. Its simply addicting but it gets boring after a while when you completed endless survival. i recommend this game.

Simple, easy, fun, tower defense game.

I like it, my sister likes it, hell my mom liked it.
You probably already own this game unless you've been living in the woods for the past few years.

I consider myself a pretty big Plants vs. Zombies fan having played through all of the games multiple times. That being said going back to the start and playing this GOTY Edition makes me realize I really want another plants vs zombies game that's not a shooter. I love the Garden Warfare series, but that's no reason not to give us release of both. The more fans the better right?

If any of you are not familiar with PVZ yet this is the perfect place to start. it really is as simple as Plants vs. Zombies.
