BEST game ever!!
This is the best game I’ve ever played.😄 I’m pretty picking when it comes to mobile games but, this game is a great strategy game that takes some thinking to strategize a good win. Now I’ve read some reviews about the game being to hard but, this game has ways around the...for example fishermen zombie just use the infi-nut power up and it covers all the lanes from the fisherman hooks from killing the plants. If you like fun games that you never get bored of, or a games with tons of plants to collect and zombies to kill, and 12 whole maps to beat, with and tons of game modes and daily activity than this game is for you. Now if you are a giver upper and get upset because you can’t beat a level the first try and are losing because of the fisherman zombies than this game isn’t for you. This game takes a good amount of time to complete but when is over you just want to play it all over again but don’t worry there’s still penny’s pursuit, and the arena which are super fun and you can still collect plants from. I don’t usually write reviews but this game deserves it and I’ve been enjoying this game ever since this game came out, I just love it . So download the game and you won’t be sorry, and thanks to the people who made this amazing game. God bless.🥳
I saw complaints about this game being hard to beat, but I disagree. This game is so fun and way better than the first one. I loved the first one, but I have to admit this one is so much better. They give you plenty of opportunity to get the good stuff to beat the levels and win plants. They let you win plenty of gems, coins, gauntlets, and mints so you can purchase the necessary items or win in the Arena. If you’re not willing to spend extra money then you can watch videos to earn the extra stuff. I’ve been able to beat almost every level without having to spend extra money and I’ve had so much fun. I watch the videos and earn enough to make it through the game. Even without the videos I would make it through. They give you that much help. This game is worth downloading. Don’t listen to the people talking bad about it because I’ve yet to find a problem with it and I’ve played it nonstop since I downloaded it. I’m already to the second to last level and I still enjoy it. The Arena, Penny’s Pursuit, and all the extra little levels thrown in daily keep you occupied when you’re not playing the Adventure mode. The point is, this is a great game. Download it!
(This Revivew is for PvZ 3 and about this game.)
PvZ 2 Part: This game is good but, I agree with the people when EA came in, they added EVERYTHING to ruin the game. Now they did add some good things, like more worlds and battlez, battlez is fun. But until they added plants to premium, the game got.. out of hand and not fun.. people who got these plants lost them. EA made The game lose its follower’s and fans.. I hope in PvZ 3, They Remove and rather fix the way premium plants. Like you have to buy with diamonds (like some in PvZ 2) and coins. PvZ 3 Part: It look’s fun, it looks like it’s a remake of the first game, but please add extra worlds, like a graveyard level, that could be for only the good player’s. Because of this graveyard themed world, near IO zombie’s would shuffle faster to the plants. And, change the art style to how it is in this game, I think it would work well, but, I’m gone with the current art style I just don’t like the color’s, just fix the color’s to how they where in this game. Pea shooter in a olive green color doesn’t sit well, I want the pea shooter color from this game. And that’s all, I’m sorry this review is wrong. Anyways, thanks for reading!
Plants Versus Zombies 2
This game is the best game I’ve had as a kid, about 4 years ago, and still have! I had Plants Versus Zombies 1 and it was great. I beat it twice! I was so excited to hear they were making a second one, and heroes, unless that is fan made. All the worlds, special events, and upgradable plants. I don’t remember is that was in the first, but if it was, I forgot. I can’t believe such a game would grab my attention like this for years! I think of it as a strategy game, and I have many games like this one with decks kinda like yu gi oh. I have certain “decks” for this game, too. My sisters and I play this game, and PvZ heroes as well on trips in the car because it’s possible offline, which is my favorite part. A fun, strategic game, with a long campaign and new unlocks of plants every week or day! And it’s offline! All my other games are mostly online, as in require network or WiFi, which I probably should have said that that’s what I meant earlier. Well, it’s a great and fun game, competitive, strategic, and some could say educational. I love it, thanks for making a second! Seth Shoemake
game is great, only writing this review for one thing.
Fisherman zombies. The worst zombie in the game. PvZ is supposed to be a fun tower defense game and having a strategy to deal with zombies with mechanics. Most zombies are bearable, the torch zombie and shovel zombie can sometimes be annoying but have their weaknesses. Gargantuars are easy enough. But the fisherman. It doesn’t make the game any more fun, and it doesn’t even feel good to beat the level with the horrid amount of fisherman zombies because you’re so stressed out by their stupid mechanics. They’re just so dumb, literally. It’s so hard to defeat them, because in beach there are tons of zombies blocking your plants from attacking them, and tangled kelp helps a bit but there are sometimes more than 5 all the time, and the kelp can’t take them all. And you always use your single use plants to defend your plants with the zombies upfront, but you end up losing because you didn’t defeat those stupid fisherman zombies. If I waste my cherrybomb to attack a group of fisherman in the back, the bucket head swarm gets my plants and I lose. I don’t have the jalapeño, and it wouldn’t even work because it only gets a single lane of fisherman zombies. I don’t expect you to remove the zombie, maybe not change it at all, but I just want to voice my opinion on how it ruins the game experience for me. But I still have arena so I guess this is alright 😔
Amazing but Vases
This is an amazing game. The graphics are pleasing, the zombies are repeated with different out fits but the outfits look funny and or amazing. Each world has a few twist, like the dark ages where your sun plants won’t work so you have to use the sun shroom and other very unique plants. The outfits for the plants is hilarious and cute. The only complaint is the vase smashing game, it is an alternative to doing arena and normal levels, but the thing is that the vase is completely turned against your favor and you are completely outnumber when they give you the worst plants, you can’t even defend your lane when you run out of plants and lose, and if you upgrade it helps, but the upgrades don’t do much all it does is make it stronger, after 5 or 6 levels you get a 25 sun reduction and very little damage upgrade. What good is the sun reduction in a vase game? Never mind the fact that the upgrades cost INSANELY large amounts of coins, where if you don’t buy the coins and you grind, it would take over 300 levels to get to at least level 6! Maybe reduce the coin amount and make it where you have a slight advantage over a zombie horde behind a vase where you don’t know if it’s deadly or not, it probably is.
Great game but.......
First of all,I <3 this game, but they took a few things that kind of ruined it a little. First of all, I have noticed me winning against a few zombies and then not appearing in the almanac. This is annoying because I sometimes check the almanac when I can’t beat a zombie. And sometimes they make a zombie rediculously annoying and it doesn’t even appear in the book so I have no way of knowing how to defeat it easily! Also, if someone has found a way to get the bucket of money in the piñata I would like to meet them because the alternative is spending MORE money on the bucket. Not only that, I’ve encountered a glitch that makes me unable to play the game on my phone. It shows the title screen and then kicks me out! What’s more, this hasn’t happened on any other device so could you please fix it? Another thing is that they took the really good plants and then charged money for them! The ones they didn’t charge money for they make you play gems or mints for. And then I end up spending more money on gems! Like I’m trying to beat this game without spending money but it’s complicated. So please take these things up with the creators thank you
Fun game, but some problems
I love Plants vs. Zombies, and I’ll start off with the positives by saying that this is a very fun game. It’s addictive! I like all the different themes and the cool new plants. Power ups make the game exciting. There’s a lot to do and endless hours of levels to play. I probably enjoy playing this one more than the first one. However, my main complaint is that everything is RIDICOUSLY overpriced. Some plants you have to pay for with real money, $5 a plant is insane!!! It should cost maybe $5 to unlock all premium plants, then that would be reasonable, and Popcap would get way more purchases. It’s sad that Popcap is turning a classic family game into a money grabbing charade. It’s sad and greedy. You can have a lot of fun with this game, but about half the things are locked unless you pay like $50 to buy it all. Anyway, Crazy Dave is back again, but I don’t like how differently he acts compared to the first one. His new personality is annoying and you should’ve left him as the original way he was. There’s a lot to explore in this game, and it may seem a little overwhelming to a new player. It’s a complicated set-up when you open the app, so maybe organize it more. But yeah, I still really like this game, it’s one of my absolute favorites. But please LOWER YOUR PRICES. And continue making Plants vs. Zombies games.
Good but greedy
The original Plants vs zombies game is a classic. You had the core game and didn’t really need micro transactions for anything. Now cut to this one where after every level is an Angry Birds ad and pop up ads for the “premium” plants that should’ve been included in the base game. This is another example of EA taking a wonderful franchise and ruining it. I played this game when it first came out, I only got back into it because I remembered that PvZ turned 10 to find it not as I remember. Instead of awarding keys to levels after you got a challenger of a level done, now you get all of them after Egypt level 8 I believe. I wanted to love this game now but I can’t. It was amazing when it first came out but now I end up stop playing at times because of the ads. And I refuse to buy anything because I don’t to sell my soul to EA for one plant. Please if you ever make Plants vs Zombies 3, don’t do this again. Update! After playing this game for more time and thinking about how this games state is I have come to a finale conclusion, EA did right for a bit. Going by other games this company has made its good. Sure it has a lot of ads and it’s almost a necessity to eventually get a premium Plants it runs smooth, and it’s fun that’s the rest thank you for reading if you do.
It was good until...
I really like the game when you were still doing updating it. I started when lost city part 2 came out and it was good. New plants, old plants and new worlds made things interesting. I even like how each world had a certain gimmick that makes it harder like the cold wind in frostbite caves. It gave more challenge during the story more than the first one. However, now half of the plants are premium and you have to buy them with real money. Plus after level 8 in ancient Egypt you get all the world keys. What happened to the extra hard challenge level that rewarded you with a key. And what happen to the music that made that level fun. All the worlds have now only 2 themes. The normal theme and the end of the world boss theme. I really like hearing the remixes of the mini game theme in each world. (like the matching camel tiles in ancient Egypt or the coconut canons and the buccaneer pirates in pirate seas) Other than that, the game is a good challenge and gives you some good plants. Oh and what’s up with the piñatas in the world map. If you played the game before the update that introduced them, all of the piñatas would be used and you would get nothing out of them. If you just fix the premium plants, piñatas, and somehow get the music back for the mini games and challenge levels (like the levels were you used to get a world key when you had to fight a bunch of Gargantuan zombies halfway through the world) the game will be great. Until then the game is ok.
The game is fun...
The game is fun, don’t get me wrong, but when looking back at the original game, it’s easy to see the heart and inspiration that went into it. When I open pvz, I’m greeted with a calm, memorable menu, it’s the opposite with pvz2, you get a boring background with new, recycled events, and plants you can buy for around 5 dollars, and that’s just the beginning. The original game was never supposed to be hard in my opinion, i mean, if I could beat it as a 7 year old, it seems fairly reasonable that it’s not supposed to be difficult and I think the reason for that is because most people want to get levels over with so they can get the next new plant. With the games accelerating difficulty, the process of gaining new plants becomes slow. You can buy plants for 5 dollars, most of them are pretty trashy cards designed to appear interesting. Some of the purchasable plants can also be won for free in the first game. Another complaint is the music, obviously I can’t expect this game to be perfect, but it seems very far from that on the wide scale. the game lacks the same relaxing music as the original and adds in an amazingly annoying attempt at an ost. Once again the gameplay is great, the same as the first game, I like the plant good idea and the changes in the maps. I like the battlez idea but EA milked money with that idea also.
Good but rigged
So I have been playing for a while, and made a few plants purchases since I love to collect them for my son. The reward system is good, despite the fact that it is obviously rigged. I.e. the pinata will always give 1000 coins on first try every 3rd pop and 1500 on 2nd try. Arena also rigged. You can win fairly easy the first few rounds, but at 6 or 7 you will most likely lose, and it can’t be more obvious than losing to “someone” with level 1 plants that didn’t even do much damage! Once you lose, the system reset and everything is easy again. Heck several times I beat “players” with all mastery plants! Perhaps it was intentionally designed such way and I can overlook that, but when I spent the last few fights to gain ranks and someome mysteriously keeps ahead of me by several points? The biggest problem right now is at 7th victory, you only get half of the reward! It clearly shows 10x pinatas, yet you get only 5x! Contacted EA and all I got were emails that asking for my account info and details on the rewards! So far I got at least 4 people replied, and none of them resolved it! They just closed the email or let someone else replied with the same statement! Sad because I would spend a few more bucks to get more plants... but it seems the end is near.
Could do without the new update
The new update is causing too many crashes... right before completing a level the game will crash and I have to do it all over again. Also, I have to constantly restart the app in order to watch ads for gems/coins because after watching just one ad, clicking the ad button does absolutely nothing. Battlez was a good addition, however it could have been done better. There are too many players with premium plants which makes it extremely one sided. Why not have one player use zombies and the other plants, that would make it more fun. The new travel log is okay I guess but where are the daily quests? I haven’t gotten any since updating, which is so infuriating. It is already hard enough to get gems and now I am missing out on the 10 gems that used to be available daily. Why make the game harder for us to get gems... I don’t get it. Also, please fix the auto load to new level after completing one. I don’t want to be sent to the next level automatically, take me back to the main menu. It is so tedious to have to pause the game and exit out every time. All of these problems have only occurred since the update which really makes me wish I wouldn’t have updated! Everything was better before 😑😒
Ruined by Micro-transaction model
This is a potentially great sequel to an already excellent game in the first PvZ. However, an exceptionally greedy micro-transaction model (especially with the latest update) and new power creep upgrade system ruins any potential for a well balanced game. Nearly half the plants are locked behind a premium $5 paywall (per plant!) including several classics such as the snow pea. There is no way that a game that should cost no more than $20 total should have hundreds of dollars worth of micro-transaction offers in every corner of the game. And the new upgrade system is no less heinous. If you wish to level up your plants, you must grind for random loot-crate like piñatas to slowly collect enough cards. In the first game, I loved the fact that the design of the levels often made them challenging, but I knew I could figure out a strategy and combination of plants to overcome the challenge. When I face a challenging level in this game, I simply wonder if my plants aren’t high enough level or if that particular level is in fact winnable with base-level plants. It saps almost all of the fun and satisfaction out of game with so much potential for those qualities. I feel like the developers and publishers have put much more time and effort into developing ways to get into customers’ wallets than they have into creating a fair and fun experience. If that’s not enough to leave a terrible taste in your mouth, the endless ads should be. What a shame...
