The Plants vs Zombies franchise has been dominating the markets for years. With its incredible tower-defense gameplay and colourful art style it has been impossible for players everywhere to resist. Now, in a massive deviation from the norm, the Plants and their Zombie foes have come back with a vengeance – in a third person, squad-based shooter. Now the Plants are mobile and are taking the fight to the Zombies. With a brilliantly coloured backdrop, Garden Warfare makes the shooter genre fun, friendly and approachable for players of all ages.
