Plants vs Zombies 2: Garden Warfare: PS4 Review
Released by EA Games
Sometimes, games should be nothing more than simple fun.
So it is with Plants vs Zombies 2: Garden Warfare, a game which explores the decades old battle between the plants and the zombies as they face off in a battle for supremacy.
If you're familiar with the first title, you'll know exactly what to expect here - it's once again the chance to simply pit yourself against the all too obvious third person shooter, with the hook that you're a plant in a world that's not exactly rooting for your survival.
Serious ain't the vibe with this game though - it's squarely about stupidity and playability, which is widely to be commended. Granted, there are plenty of bright colours to keep the youngsters amused and plenty of shooting to keep the hardcore gamer engaged, but at the end of the day, the variety of playing options for Plants Vs Zombies 2: Garden Warfare means the title will continue with its longevity.
It's predominantly the multiplayer which keeps this title alive and the single player is fun, but it's really about taking on others and seeing if you can kill them off that the game starts to really show its raison d'etre. Each character has a different kind of attack and a different melee power, meaning that co-oping is really the only way to go, especially if you're trying to up your class and level up.
Plants vs Zombies 2: Garden Warfare won't challenge you as much as you'd expect, but it will deliver a comic gaming experience that's worth your time.
It'll take some effort to get the rewards of the more powerful weapons, but at the end of the day, when it all falls into place and comes together with a degree of strategy, there's nothing to beat it.
