Traditional Rating: "8/10"
Genre: Tower Defense
Plant vs. Zombies from Popcap was a bonafide critical and commercial success that resulted in many GOTY awards at the end of 2009. It's not difficult to see why. With tongue firmly planted in cheek its a beacon of humorous light in a genre that has much less thrills than it has humor in it these days.
Taking on the role of a homeowner who's only way to defend their home from the advancing shuffling hoard is to use an arsenal of plants else suffer the fate of having said zombies snacking on their brains. Plants vs. Zombies exudes a simple charm that makes the game difficult not to fall in love with. Offering a surprising amount of content once the player has blasted his or her way through the main campaign don't be put of by the flash style graphics as this is one of the better themed Zombie games out there to date.
I immensely enjoyed my time with this title and I am sure many others will feel the same. Well worth a purchase considering the price is now a cheap $4.99. If you want to be even cheaper you can head on over to Origin and grab this as the free game of the month (May 2014) on the Origin Client.
