Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is a brand new release in the PvZ franchise. However it’s much, much different from the original, 2D, RTS-based strategy game. Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is a first person action and survival game.
Now since it was just released I’ve not had a ton of game time yet, so I don’t know how much this game has to offer. But from what I’ve seen already, it’s a pretty freaking awesome game. You play as one of four plants: Peashooter (soldier), Sunflower (medic), Cactus (sniper), or Chomper (melee). Each one has a different play style, and a lot of character customization. You can customize your plants with different hats and costumes, but not all costumes are just for looks. Some costumes are complete sets, and when you have a complete set you get a bonus effect (I.E if you have a full hazardous material suit for the Peashooter, he gains a poisonous attack).
Once you’re done looking at customization, you can “try” joining a game. Why do I say “try?” Because even though the game is great, I had a lot of trouble actually getting on a server, and staying on. It seems that the developers need to upgrade their servers a bit before the game is fully playable. But it’s not impossible to get in a game, it’s more of a hit-or-miss.
Once you do get in a game, get ready for the fun. There are many different game-modes. The one I like most is survival, where you and three other players must build and protect a garden. Another game-mode is Versus, when you can play as plants, AND zombies! It’s pretty fun. There’s also something called “Gnome Bomb,” but I’ve not played that yet.
Now talking about prices and where to buy it, currently it’s available on the gaming app Origin for $30 (or $35 if you want the deluxe). Personally I’d say that’s a fair price for this game, as it has a ton of first-day content and will most likely receive updates later. It’s also available on Xbox and PlayStation. My overall rating for this game is a 9/10, I highly recommend it, and I hope to see you planting!
