Plants vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time Review (PopCap)

What It Is

Plants Vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time from PopCap is the official sequel to the hugely successful first Plants Vs. Zombies game. Like the original, Plants Vs. Zombies 2 is a Tower Defense Game where waves of zombies are slowly marching towards you and the only thing standing in their way are the plants that you place.

Is It Fun?

There are more than 20 varieties of plants and they all have a specific ability that will help you keep the zombies from reaching you and eating your brain. You start the game with a few plants to choose from including the Peashooter that shoots peas, the Wall-nut, that blocks the zombies and the most important plant of all, sunflowers. The reason that they are so important is that they produce extra sun, which is what you need to plant the other plants. As the game progresses, you will find new plants to add to your arsenal and each plant seems to get funnier and more powerful such as Bonk Choy who throws a mean uppercut.

The game is also really funny. Like the plants, the zombies get funnier looking as you play and the game's story line is all about Crazy Dave traveling to different zombie-ridden eras in a time-traveling RV, while looking for his taco.

Who It’s For

Plants Vs. Zombies 2 is perfectly suitable for kids as young as 8 because it's all cartoon-style action and graphics.

What To Be Aware Of

The game is free to play, however, there are many opportunities in the game to spend real money. They are usually in the form of upgrades or unlocking new content. Fortunately, you don't have to spend anything to enjoy playing this game.

Plants Vs. Zombies 2 is currently available for iOS devices only. An Android version is in the works.

This is a huge game with multiple maps and tons of levels in each map. You can replay any level once completed and this game gives you reason to go back and play levels again. The biggest reason is to gather stars, which can be used to unlock the other maps.
