First I'll just say that I am fairly obsessed with this game, whatever the platform. With it's originality, inventive game play, and the wide array of mini-games and puzzles makes this is one of the best games I've ever played, especially on the DS. With the stylus, control is even easier. And the fact I can play this on the go is a huge selling point.
Plants Vs. Zombies is basically a "tower defense" type game, in the sense that you must defend your house from approaching zombies using your large arsenal of funny little plants.
Thanks to it's simple game mechanics and easy learning curve, this a great game for all ages. The main game itself isn't very challenging (may prove a nice challenge for younger players). However, once you beat the game a first time, the difficulty is ramped up a bit with your second play-through.Read more ›
With that said, I was curious to see how it plays on the DS. The answer is very well. You do a lot of dragging and dropping with the stylus but the game (music and sound effects as well) are essentially the same. As you complete different levels in the adventure mode, you will unlock all of the mini-games. I haven't gone through the entire thing yet but at level 3 you unlock the mini-games and they appear to be the same as the computer version.
The three main differences are
1. The Zombinator - a way cool avatar creator to make your own zombie!
2. After Level 2 is over, you can play head to head against a friend.
3. You can earn different awards like blowing up 10 zombies with 1 cherry bomb. (Easter Egg on this screen!!)
I've found 1 easter egg so far :) I'm hoping to find more!
Am I happy I purchased it? Yep. Now I can play Zombies at lunch :)
You start off with only peashooter seed packets, each peashooter cost 100 suns, which comes from the sky every once and awhile. After you fight off the zombies on the first level, you earn a different seed packet: a sunflower plant, letting you get more sun. Then you get all sorts of different plants, like cherry bombs, doom-shroom, lily pad, plantern(yep, half plant and half lantern), and watermelon-pult. You can also buy upgrades for you plants with money you get through out the game.
I have also played the this game for the PC, and it is mostly the same. I was really disappointed when i found out you could not save your game in survival endless(a mini-game that goes on forever until you die). They have the same modes, but they have about 4 different mini games, all 4 more fun then the others.
Concerned parents, this dose NOT have any blood and is NOT that violent. No guns, nothing gross, and more like 5-years+ for age group(i have a 4 year old brother that likes to play but needs help with the fast zombies).

From me, a 12 year old, this game gets 5 stars.
My 8 and 10 year old sons love this game. Just enough gross stuff to keep them feeling like they are getting away with trouble, but nothing really bad that I have to be concerned about. Pretty innocuous.
But, the fun thing here is that this is a great game. My kids love it. They play for hours. And hours, And hours. Handy for long car rides or a shopping trip to Costco.
I will let kid reviewers tell you about the mechanics of the game and how well made it is - but my primary concern is that this is good clean fun for kids that they really do enjoy.
