'Plants vs. Zombies 2' Review

Guys, I have a confession: I am addicted to Plants vs. Zombies (PvZ).

Let me explain. After I first owned the original PvZ for the PC – and played it extensively I might add – it simply wasn’t enough. It later released on iOS, and bathrooms trips went from mundane to something I could look forward to. Then it was ported to the console with new features, and who wouldn’t want an HD version of PvZ on their big screen?

After completing the story mode for the umpteenth time and getting all of the achievements, I reached a dead end. They came out with a DS version of PvZ, and it even came with a small figurine of the Yeti Zombie, enticing me to buy the game a fourth time, but at this point, I acknowledged my ridiculous addiction.

More of the same game wouldn’t cure this disease. What I needed was a new entry to the franchise; a sequel to what is already an addictive take on the tower defense genre while improving upon the formula and simultaneously tweaking some issues I had with the original game.

The gaming god’s blessings fell upon me when PopCap released a trailer for PvZ 2, revealing the game as “Plants vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time,” and the title couldn’t be more perfect. It not only describes the game’s plot, but it also articulates my frustrated feelings of waiting another month for the game to reach North America’s shores. I couldn’t help but scream “It’s about time!” when I received the press release from PopCap telling me the game was finally available to download. Rest assured though PvZ enthusiasts – PvZ 2 is well worth the wait. (EA, iPad, iPhone, Mobile, Plants Vs Zombies 2, PopCap) 8.9/10
