TGH Review: Plants vs Zombies

TGH: "As of late, the "Tower Defense" genre has generally been tackled by independent developers exploiting flash games to their most addictive capacity, forcing players to defend a fixed, critical points on a map using other fixed defenses of varying degrees of effectiveness. Some games even let the player take a more direct role by activating one-use items to clear the area of attackers, or send their own army to battle their oncoming opponents. The original games which birthed this concept stem from the original cult following from Battle.net game "Starcraft," and have become well known to hardcore and casual gamers alike with names like "Defend Your Castle" and "Desktop Tower Defense." While they boil down to mindless fun, with a dash of strategy built in, the initial concept has not changed much; protect yourself by using all the means at your disposal and preserve enough resources to effectively advance through the game without being overrun by enemies." (PC, Plants vs Zombies) 4.5/5
