Plants vs Zombies 2 isn't just a great game; it's a long overdue revolution


#13

Hey, you guys


#14

I think the first game that did this was Borderlands. In borderlands you are not a slave of leveling. Leveling is easy and you can find a awesome weapon anywhere. The first borderlands did this at a time where people where tryiing to figure out how to encrypt savegames to stop hackers, or when other games where forcing people to make a offline and a online character, withouth the ability for the offline character to play online. It was a revolution. Then something horrible happened: Nobody paid attention to that, they just dropped the offline character thing, the offline playing thing, they took the online character and run with it. And is where we are now. :(

I saw some other coverage of this game, but they made no mention of how accommodating this game was in terms of its single player rewards. Pretty cool how different folks can value different aspects of the same game.

Corrections:
"Becuase"
"it still cost the same to [plant] seeds"
"singleplay[er] multiplayer"
"a singleplayer multiplayer games [sic]"
"the one rare instances [sic]"

Once again, thanks so much for the corrections, Merc. You rock!

Wish I could play local split screen with my son on our PC :( That would have been fun. Guess that feature is relegated to consoles.

> Alongside the usual online options, it will let you do whatever you want, however you want, with whomever you want

Same with 3D GayVilla. Try it.


#19

I'll never understand why these games aren't more popular. It's a damned shame.

Arise thread!

So this is on sale:

https://www.origin.com/usa/en-us/store/plants-vs-zombies/plants-vs-zombies-garden-warfare-2/deluxe-edition

But it has three editions.

I have some questions:

  1. How fun is it single player?
  2. How replayable is it?
  3. Which version should I get?

Thanks!

Can someone explain to me why the plants are fighting the zombies? What is their motivation? Zombies crave flesh, specifically human brains. Plants are completely safe from their depredations. Why are they in this fight at all?


#22

Plants love humans, and want us to continue not having our brains eaten. It’s a well documented fact.

PS, hey I own this! I should probably play it.

Oh man, reading this review in the context of the Battlefront 2 release is really depressing. It’s like being all excited that Hillary Clinton is running – a long overdue revolution! whee! – but then having Trump win the election…

I’m not sure if you realize you’re posting in the thread for a review that addresses those questions, but, here, let me save you the trouble of having to read it.

  1. Very.
  2. Very.

:)

As for the choice of platform, it’s really a matter of, well, your choice of platform. I have it on the PS4. I’m not sure whether EA’s PC versions believe in splitscreen support, so if that’s important to you, you might want to take that into consideration.

I probably spent $500 for card packs in this game. I also emailed the developer directly and invoked my internet fame and begged to get the unicorn chomper. Which normally requires reaching some ungodly level in PvZ:GW1 multiplayer.

TL;DR I now have the unicorn chomper, and you don’t, suckers!


#25

I did read it – and it was very good – I just wanted to ask around. Second opinions and all that. I’m on PC as well, so I might just get Origin Access, not sure yet.


#26

Welp, I tried the trial – didn’t even know that existed until today, derp – and bought it after 20-30 minutes. Holy crap this is fun.


#27

I did tell you a couple days ago. Bargain Thread 2017


#28

…and you are?

Seriously, I saw that at work and forgot alllllllllllllll about it. Sorry!


#29

No problem, I’m just messin with ya.


#30

My God, I think I’m in love with this game.


#31

I’ll probably try the demo myself.

I just played multiplayer today for the first time. Part of a special event where you get rainbow stars. SO FUN. SO CHAOTIC. I died a lot, but I actually got MVP for most revivals in one match. My god this is fun.
