Don't Let The Cheesy Cover and Title Fool You--This Game ROCKS!,
This review is from: Plants vs. Zombies: Game of the Year Edition (Video Game)
A few weeks ago, I bought Zuma's Revenge because I liked the original Zuma. Well, on that PopCap PC game, there were several trial games, one being Plants Vs. Zombies.
"How stupid", I thought. But for some reason, I decided to install the trial version to see what it was.
Holy cow, talk about instant addiction!
I won't describe the game because it's been done here ad infinitum, but just know this game is SO FUN and addicting! I finally finished it last night (yes, I was having so much fun that I bought the full version in a store a few days ago, even though the trial offers about 1/3 of the game), but there are STILL a lot of fun mini-games to play and unlock. These are about as much fun as the actual game! (Beghouled, a twist on Bejeweled, is very clever...)
Basically, this is a strategy game, because different zombies have varying strengths and weak points (for example, a zombie carrying a screen door is best defeated with a bubble plant). So before the game, you have to choose exactly WHICH plants you want (which also have various strengths). These plants are powered by sunflowers, and clicking on the suns they provide to grow the plants.
The music is light-hearted (and hard to get out your head!), and Crazy Dave is, well, crazy! LOL My 11 year old pulled up a chair when I was playing the trial and wanted to have it. So of course, when we saw it in the store, we both lunged towards it! (He's about 3/4 through it and LOVES it. He frequently laughs out loud, too. The Garlic Plants are especially funny--zombies are grossed out by them and switch lanes...)
Get Plants Vs. Zombies. You won't regret it! It's the best PC game I do believe I've ever bought (and I own dozens).

I agree this is an addictive game! Actually the best way to defeat a screen door zombie is the spikeweed/rock and mellon-put. The spikeweed/rock pokes him to death from below and avoids the screen. With the mellon-put a few well placed watermelons on the noggin of a screen door zombie and their head pops right off with screen door still in hand! Very satisfying!
