Plants Vs. Zombies Reviewed

Game Over Online 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 homes, and their brains, from a horde of hungry zombies. Game Over Online gave the game a score of 83 percent.

From the review:

The campaign that comes with Plants vs. Zombie consists of 50 levels. In each level, the zombies attack from the street on the right side of the screen, and if they make it to your house on the left side, then they eat your brain and you have to start over. The playing field is made up of a grid, and you have to place your plants in the grid squares to set your defense. Most plants do damage to the zombies, but others have special purposes, like wall-nuts, which block zombies from progressing (until the zombies chew through them). The premise of the game might sound strange, but it’s a lot of fun to pelt zombies with a variety of fruits and vegetables.

There is a lot of variety to Plants vs. Zombies. There are 48 different plants and 26 different zombies, and you also have to deal with some environmental difficulties, like nighttime battles and the swimming pool in your backyard. The game exists firmly with tongue in cheek, and so all of the plants and zombies are funny. For example, the newspaper zombie shuffles along slowly until you destroy his newspaper, and then he races at you with a rage (because he was that close to finishing the sudoku). Other zombies include a Michael Jackson-esque dancing zombie, a zomboni driver, a pole-vaulting zombie, and, of course, Dr. Zomboss, who you’ll have to fight at the end.

Besides the campaign, Plants vs. Zombies also includes a bunch of mini-games and special modes to play through. Most of these games are pretty easy (as are the levels in the campaign), but there are also some “endless” games, where you get to keep playing until you’re overwhelmed, and these games are going to be tough for anybody. You can also repeat the campaign if you want. And each time you play it, it becomes more difficult.
