GameShark: Plants vs. Zombies Review

Some will find the lack of any score or stat tracking a bit unnerving, especially after PopCap's history of score-based games. This is a new direction, however. Everything in has been absolutely drenched in adorable art and brilliant humor. Crazy Dave, a maniacal shopkeeper that gives you goodies and upgrades for cash you've collected is just one example. Garbled dialogue and nonsensical musings emphasizes the cheery approach to everything in this game. In this case it happens to be psychological trauma. From the enemy biographies (take special note of the zomboni) to what is probably the best help screen in the history of games, Plants vs. Zombies is brimming with clever details that will vigorously pull laughter from your lungs.

It's this light-heartedness that makes it so gosh darn likable. Plants vs. Zombies is an immensely fun and wonderfully imaginative strategy game that makes for one of the most enjoyable experiences of the year. (PC, Plants vs Zombies) A/A+
