I am so excited to talk to you guys about this Plants VS Zombies game! I never really liked the other Plants VS Zombies games. My son thought they were alright, but that's about it. Rewind a couple of weeks ago to when I was watching E3 on TV mid June and they talked (briefly) about this game. I remember thinking that it looked amazing and I would even give it a try. Well after that segment of E3, I forgot all about this game. Until I noticed it on sale through Games with Gold, so we went ahead and bought it.
This game is setup basically like 'capture the flag' in Call of Duty (that's the closest thing i could think of!). You plant a garden, pot your ally plants in the pots around, and then defend it against the various waves of zombies that come. The zombies run to your garden, but your allies can shoot them if they are within range. This is a HUGE difference from the original game. The original game was pretty dull. The first thing that grabbed my attention was how vibrant everything was. It definitely looked more colorful and there were more things to actually see. Its a first person 'shooter' game, which I like. What you are able to shoot depends on which character you use. You play as the plants and you are able to choose between the Cactus, Pea Shooter, Chomper and Sunflower.
They all look so much cooler now that they aren't boring two dimensional! The zombies look equally cool. And there are so many different kinds which do different things! They also have fun costumes on. And instead of them creeping up to your garden, they run to it. Sorta in a 28 Days Later kind of way (kind of). They come in waves. You have a tiny break in between waves, and then they come a' running again!
Apparently there is a Zomboss at some point at the end of the waves. I haven't made it through all of the waves so I have no idea what that's all about, but here's a picture of the Zomboss:
I actually plan on playing it a little bit this evening, lets hope I can make it more than the first two waves, he he! Even though I haven't made it very far, I still really like this game. its a lot of fun!
Nerdy love to ya!
