The ridiculously awesome action-strategy game features an abundance of zombies that fit no stereotypes known to gamerkind, including those mentioned above. The most refreshing part of the game, short of its funny graphics and why-so-serious attitude, would definitely be the anti-zombie plant arsenal that you, as the player, has in store. Take a trip to the garden store and stock up on Potato bombs, Peashooters, Jalapenos, and dozens of other options! Bet you've never killed zombies riding a bobsled with a Jalapeno! The game is 2D, and has a couple of different courses. Some maps might include rivers in the middle, making it difficult for zombies to cross -- but wait, these zombies have... FLOATIES! Oh yeah, that's right. Zombies: Sink or Float? Float(ies). You are never safe, and must deploy tangle-weed-type plants to latch onto the aberrations, forcing them to sleep with the zombie fishes.
Brought to you by the great guys over at PopCap Games, Inc., the team that became famous overnight for Peggle, I expect nothing less than a fantastic adventure, especially for the great $10 asking price. I know what I will be playing while I wait for StarCraft 2 and Modern Warfare 2 to come out in November. We'll have a review up immediately after launch.
I recommend you view the PlantsVsZombies YouTube channel for some hilarious zombie videos. The music video is my favorite. Well, the King Pong one is good, too.
If you'll excuse me, I'm off to the garden store!
