Plants vs. Zombies

 

Who knew zombies were omnivores? Plants vs. Zombies presents a cuddlier take on these murderous undead. They really want to eat your brains, but they shamble in a straight path to your house, snacking on landscaping that gets directly in their way....

Clever and cute zombies and plants. Strategy runs deeper than the simple premise. Nearly endless modes build variety. ESRB rating: Everyone 10

Visuals are locked into 800-by-600-pixel view, lacking extreme detail. You can't speed up time while waiting for slow-moving zombies. The main campaign gets repetitious if you play again

You'll smile at the clever Plants vs. Zombies animation and sound, but compelling strategy rules give it even deeper roots.

Plants vs. Zombies (DS)

 

You're trapped inside the house; brain-craving zombies are closing in from all sides; and there are no firearms or weaponized power tools in sight. What do you do? In Plants vs. Zombies, now available for the Nintendo DS well over a year after it...

While the graphics in the game seem to have ported well to the DS, it is by no means any comparison to the HD version of the iPad, not to mention the steep price tag that goes along with it. In later levels or survival mode, the game bogs down...

Plants Vs. Zombies from Pop cap games is one of those games that if you have spent any time playing with a PC you should be familiar with. Its one of those rare games that hits at the right time and with the right attitude. While not as big as say,...

Great translation from the PC game + Great graphics + Highly addicting

The sound is kind of bad - Sometimes the game can slow

Plants Vs. Zombies for the uninformed among us is a simple strategy game where you defend your home against the brain eating hoards of the undead using various plants and fungus. While you get more plants, the zombies become more varied. Ranging from...

The name says it all.

Accessible gameplay, great sense of humor, excellent competitive mode

Frame rate issues, new minigames aren't very interesting, top screen not used well

A Higher Body Count Than Gardening Mama, Cuter Than Resident Evil: Deadly Silence

Perhaps the biggest factor in deciding to buy Plants vs. Zombies DS over any of the other versions of the game is that of value, which the game doesn’t lack. Although the actual game doesn’t take too long to finish, the achievements, minigames,...

Remember when Apple first announced the App Store for the iPhone. Remember all of the skeptics about gaming on the iPhone? I was one of them. Sure

Although not the optimal version of Plants vs. Zombies, I would say that this is a worthy entry into the Nintendo DS lineup. If you haven’t yet tried this amazing game the DS is a good version to see what all the fuss is about.

Plants vs. Zombies has been an absolute winner for Popcap Games on the Apple platforms, PC and Xbox Live, so it was just a matter of time before it would head to Nintendo's insanely popular handheld. Granted, it's not as exciting as a 3D version of...

Plants vs. Zombies Review

 

The DS version of this great tower defense game can be a little confusing but is a lot of fun to play both solo and competitively.

Accessible, satisfying tower defense gameplay ; Stylus controls work well ; Loads of things to do beyond just beating the campaign ; Competitive multiplayer option is a blast

Early campaign levels offer practically no challenge ; Touch-screen is overly crowded which is occasionally detrimental to gameplay

Despite its overly busy visuals, the DS version of Plants vs. Zombies is still easy to recommend because it boasts the same ingenious game design, uncomplicated controls, upbeat audio, decent difficulty curve, and frequent player rewards. Both the PC...
