Plants Vs. Zombies Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story has published a new review of Plants Vs. Zombies, PopCap Games most recent entry in the casual games market. The tower defense title challenges players to make use of a variety of plants to defend their home, and their brain, from a horde of hungry zombies. GamersInfo recommended the game to fans of tower defense and casual games.

From the review:

Apart from the garden variety zombie, there are some that use buckets as helmets and screen doors as shields, and even a dancing zombie spoofing Michael Jackson’s Thriller video. Every zombie has a particular weakness that is matched by a particular plant, adding an element of strategy into the mix.

As the game’s Adventure mode progresses, the difficulty is ever so slightly increased from level to level but never so much that it becomes daunting. As you face a greater number and variety of zombies, the game unlocks new plants and abilities to even the odds. All the game elements combine into a game that hooks you in right at the first level and doesn’t let you go until you conquer the final map.

Only after you finish Adventure mode do you find the real value in the game. Where so many other games have fallen short, Plants vs Zombies succeeds in offering extras and minigames that are actually just as meaty and compelling as the main game. One game switches the roles, letting you command a squad of zombies and challenging you to get through levels filled with plants. Another starts you with a lawn filled with vases. Some vases contain plants, some contain zombies, and you don’t know which. Break open all the vases and kill all the zombies to win.
