    This game is great! (Might be scary to younger children)

    Okay so the first time I played this, it was on my grandma’s iPad. I loved it. (My parents didn’t really approve, but I didn’t care and neither did my grandma) so I was pretty decent at this, beat all the levels. Now I’m sitting here playing it, and it’s totally addicting years later. I prefer this one to the second one, mostly because the game mechanics seem simpler to me I guess. I just realized that this was the first review I’ve ever written for a game 🤔. So this pretty much had no purpose, I just wanted to let y’all know that this game is great! I mean, for some younger kids, it might be a bit scary... but if you think they can handle it, go ahead and get it for them! Seriously, great game. Can be played online and offline, with WiFi or without it. So it’s great for road trips, being on a plane, in a dead zone, pretty much anywhere your device won’t be harmed. I have no problem with this whatsoever, just wanted to let you guys know what a great game this is! 👍

    Extremely well made game

    I love nearly everything about this game. In my opinion it is one of the best games on the appstore and I’ll explain why. The game is completely and utterly unique in theme, planting plants to defend your house from incoming zombies. Now that’s already a great game that you could play for a pretty long time, but eventually you’d get bored of it. They knew this and added plenty of mini games for you to entertain yourself with and it gives the game much more longevity. Also all the levels are not too hard but easy enough that you don’t have to redo them millions of times. I love crazy Dave, I think he is a hilarious character but that’s not the only reason I think he’s great. Other games will have characters who are entertaining like him but most of those are mono dimensional, and they don’t really effect the plot. Yet Crazy Dave is intertwined perfectly. He is your guide for the basics of lawn safety via plants. I think the art design is really good, it’s not too extremely realistic, but it’s not too cartoony either. I love the soundtrack it fits the game really well, it really captures the essence of the game. I love all the little things you can do around the menus as well. I love the entire currency system, unlike many other games it only has one currency. I like that you purchase everything you need from the back of crazy Dave’s van and I like the zen garden concept as well. That’s why I think this is one of the best games on the appstore.

    There’s no way past level 5

    It’s impossible to get passed level 5 on Night, You don’t have unlimited lawn mowers, so you have to continue watching ads after ads, Then when you’re out, You’re out you lose, Play it again the same thing happens, Also when you use a cherry bomb after you kill a zombie with a lawn mover and they drop sun points, You place it down and it only has like, 2 Tiles down and 1 tile over, Like 2 Y and 1 X So what about the other two or three lanes? It also takes about a minute for that thing to be ready to use again, This is super unfair, They just want you to keep on playing ads, When there’s no possible way to beat it, This game was fun a few years back when I downloaded it on my laptop, I beat it and decided to play it again on my IPhone, I noticed it changed a lot, And so has the levels, Please make Level 5 Night at least possible



    Straight to the point...I love PvZ (Though the first person BS needs a break) I have supported PVZ for years and I was so excited by the new update with penny and opened the app...where was it? I thought maybe I need to unlock it? I went to pressed learn more and it said once you get 15 plants it’s unlocked...I’m way past 15 plants...were is it? I closed the app fully and re-opened and still couldn’t find it I looked more in the shop and then the app crashed, I thought maybe the app realized something wasn’t right...nope just crashed...please fix it I really want to participate Ps. I also for some reason can’t make a new account and I accidentally deleted my old account when I wanted to re-name it and I couldn’t get it back so maybe add a warning before you erase your progress? Pps. I bought the Apple motor and I don’t have many other plants other than the gem premiums and I wanted to level it up because Apple motor was my favorite plant...and every time I bough a premium piñata I got random premium plants I don’t own so I was wondering if you could make it so it’s more common to get seeds for plants you ACTUALLY OWN?

    Paid to remove ads, still unplayable

    I paid a few months ago to remove ads. That worked for about a week. Now I’m back to having so many ads that game is almost unplayable. There are ads between every round, ads before and after every bonus game, ads when I visit my zen garden, etc. I spend more time stuck in ads than playing. I’ve contacted EA three separate times (before the lockdown) about it. First time they never responded. Second time they told me it was third party apps playing the ads (lie) and that I need to track down the app and delete it. So apparently according to EA, the inability to restore your purchase of no ads isn’t their fault (it just hangs on connecting to server when you click restore) it’s some invisible third party that they’re not responsible for and that only affects their game and no others. Third time, a response to their third party app theory, got no response. I know it’s only 3 bucks, but how many people are they ripping off? Reinstalling the game doesn’t fix it.

    Amazing Game, EA ruined it

    Plants vs Zombies has always been a staple of what a good mobile game is. It is extremely fun to play with an adventure/levels mode, as well as numerous other fun mini games. But now the game that was with me all my life is changed. I got a new Apple ID and got the game again but it’s different from how it once was. EA has made it so that at the begging of every level, you have a rake in the middle of the screen, and to get it you have to watch an add. You used to buy these things with easy to get in game money(no real money spent) but now there’s a focus on watching adds. As well as these optional items, in order to play the game you sometimes need to watch adds. In order to play a bonus game you HAVE TO WATCH AN ADD. Even the adventure part of the game is filled with adds. The final straw for me writing this review was when after completing an adventure level an add popped up. In summary PvZ is an amazing game, but it was much better when although the game cost money, there were NO ADDS. DOWN WITH EA

    PvZ Gone Down Hill

    Originally bought the game back in 2012. Every few years I like to go back and play the game. I recently started playing again. I re-downloaded the app to see they did some updates with the interface. Nice. My one biggest pet peeve is that the game is now laden with adds and annoying suggestions to watch videos for a stupid item or upgrade. Is this what the game industry has come to? After every level you beat there is a stupid ad. What prompted me to write this review is that I just beat a level that I was working on for a good 20min and then had to watch an ad(ok, normal), then once the ad started, an “x” to close the ad that normally appears after about 8-10secs never appeared. I then went , “fine I’ll just open up the ad to see if this gets it going”. Nothing. Ok. So I then close PvZ then re-open it only to find out it didn’t save because of a stupid ad that glitched and forced me to exit out, close the app, then re-open it. Cmon PvZ team. Your game rivaled Angry Birds years ago. One of the top mobile games. Now you guys are pumping low-tier crap. The stuff you are doing is what sketchy rip off mobile games do.

    Good, but could use some work

    I enjoy the game very much, but it’s not nearly as fun as it was 3-4 years ago The zombies should do more or atleast feel like they more damage every level so if a normal zombie does 3 damage at level 4 it should do 3.5 or 4 damage level 5 as well as the plants costing more al little for another example on level 3 a pea shooter costs 100 on level 5 or 6 it should cost a little more like 105 or 110 see what I mean it would make it harder because right now with a easy to master sunflower farm making sun pretty much infinite so hard to run out and lawn mowers and plants that can 1 shot any zombie meaning you could just spawn them when a high health zombie comes and with its short respawn time you could spam them if you have an efficient sunflower farm which is easy to make. I understand you may think that the game will be be to challenging for kids, but if you look back at the old Mario games they were hard very hard and the kids adapted to them calling them easy. It just strengthened their gaming skills, but you can have a better explain system or tutorial if you want take care.

    All for money...

    There are so many ads now in PvZ it actually hurts me to play sometimes. I have to turn on airplane mode so I don’t receive an ad each time I complete a level or go to the main menu. They are quite annoying especially since playing before this time there was zero ads. Why did EA have to change this?? Leave the old game to slowly sputter out they literally had to change nothing and the game would still be perfect but they had to go and add so many ads into it. Not only that but a large thing that makes me mad is the fact that marigolds are sold in the shop for $5000 (previously $2500). This is a terrible price when you think about it because of these reasons. The marigold when finally grown to an adult size you get $1000 (one diamond) and can only be sold for $3000 and also in the intermediate levels of growth you get less than $500. This was the whole idea of the marigolds so that players can make a profit but instead you are losing money from buying these. There utterly is no point to them and should be reverted to their previous price of $2500 to “reward us nicely” as Crazy Dave says. I am putting this review as 1 Star because EA and popcap took a great game and made it just annoying. Hopefully this being 1 Star someone might see it but I highly doubt any change will be made. Thank you for reading my frustration!

    Listen I love PvZ with a passion, but this game is a trick

    Have you fine people wondered why this game doesn’t capture the same nostalgia as the PvZ you once knew and loved? Check the publisher. That’s not our beloved Popcap making old moves. That’s EA getting their hands somewhere it doesn’t belong again. This game doesn’t feel like the old one because it’s not. I’m sorry EA I love you and I love the Sims, but you’ve once again stuck your grubby little hands where they don’t belong. I was only able to figure this out because when I noticed this app was free and there was no 99¢ option I looked in my recent purchases and there it was. The exact same game (we all know not exact but you get what I’m saying) same plants, same zombies, different publisher. I didn’t think anyone could screw up a game already published so badly, but are you folks really so strapped for cash you have to not only put ads before each level, but also offer unremovable ad options for items that no player should be using because it’s absolutely immersion breaking and just in general not fun like the exploding walnut and extra lawn mowers? I’m willing to bet I could play a whole game without planting a single plant, and for that you break my heart.

    The game got EA’d, what a shame

    PvZ, at its core, was a wonderful experience. If you’re playing this in 2020, I assume you know what the gameplay is. Compared to PvZ2, The adventure mode is streamlined and encourages using a variety of plants in each world, the bonus games are fun, and Zen Garden is a relaxing and simple collectathon if that strikes your fancy. Those are the things it does right. However, going back to play this game now (which I had purchased before it was F2P), the staggering amount of ads they’ve implemented make this a headache to play through. Forced ads before AND after levels, ads to play bonus games, ads to supplement the pathetic amount of coins you get when you used to be able to comfortably buy everything just playing the game. And to top it all off, it’s clear the game wasn’t originally designed for ads and they are poorly integrated, since very frequently the level will crash after serving you up the pre-level ad which forces an app restart and watching an ad once more. I understand making it F2P is appealing, but anyone who had purchased the game previously should automatically have the ad-free option unlocked. This wasn’t done, hence my low score. Play something else.

    Fix update!....AGAIN

    UPDATE TO PREVIOUS REVIEW: The game has been glitching the last few days. As I have beaten the game well over 100 times and gotten all but one or two achievements, I typically only get on to play mini games. I was in the middle of playing level 3-5 when the game kept freezing up when I tried to get anything that required watching a video. So I logged off and back on several times. After the last time, my entire game was reset, completely wiped out my progress, FOR THE THIRD TIME. My game started over as if I had never played the game before. I am so annoyed!! Never have I played a game before that the developers think it is ok to reset all progress, MULTIPLE TIMES!! I LOVED this game for a very long time, but now it’s just irritating! I will not be starting over again. I will just finally delete the app, unfortunately, and that makes me very sad to say. The update wiped out my Zen Garden but gave me money for it so no big deal, although I don't need the money and used some to buy back my gardens but my survival mode is locked even though I have ALL of my trophies and most of my achievements!!! Please UNLOCK SURVIVAL MODE!!!! The extras are the only reason I play anymore since I have beaten the game MULTIPLE times!!!!

    Isn’t this illegal or something?

    I have literally purchased this game more times than I remember, in many different forms. I know I originally bought this app on my iPod when I was younger so that’s at least ONE time I’ve paid $0.99. I’ve had it on my DS, my Xbox, etc, not that it matters. And I’ve purchased coins from the shop a few times over the years as well—specifically through iTunes. So what the hell is going on when suddenly it’s a free to download app that refuses to restore all my purchases and forces me to watch adds? I literally own this game and it was taken away from me by an update?? I guess it’s my fault for getting a new phone huh? Honestly this is really scummy. At least let people restore their purchases. This new update only allows the “get rid of ads” purchase to be restored, and I believe any purchase used to do that but I could be mistaken. Even so, for somebody who originally paid for the app and has since made in-app purchases, all on the same iTunes account over many years, it’s disappointing for me to see my favorite mobile game get squeezed for cash like this. 😔 SEGA did this with Sonic as well so you’re not the only ones stealing products back from the consumers I guess

    EA ruined this game with ads

    When I was younger, this was by far my favorite game to play. I would constantly try and beat the next level, but I could never defeat the final boss at the end. I was excited when I saw it optimized for the new phones so I could finally beat the game without my fathers help, but now I’m incredibly disappointed. Both before and after every level, I have been forced to watch a 30 second ad that cannot be skipped. It happens whenever you switch menus or do really anything in the game, which makes it infuriating to play. The game also freezes a ton during each round, which causes you to restart the game and watch another ad upon re-entry, even making you lose all progress. On top of that, everything is nearly impossible to do without spending money for the mini games which is disheartening. Those used to be a ton of fun to play, but now I can only play one and then have to grind 2 more hours to do even one more. I loved this game when I was younger, but now it is almost impossible to play which makes me feel awful. Why did EA do anything to this game? It was perfect before, but now it’s only a money grab.
