Welcome to Neighborville, where all is well. Except that a crazy new coniferous conflict between brain-less and botanicals is brewing! What are you gonna do – call the crops? Soil your plants? It’s time to kick some grass in the wackiest shooter experience between plants and zombies yet: Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville™.
Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville takes the foundation of the Garden Warfare series and expands upon it. No longer is the game just about competitive multiplayer, there’s now a wide variety of co-op activities for friends to play through. Whether you’re a fan of Garden Warfare, or new to the Plants vs Zombies series, there’s something for everyone in Battle for Neighborville.
Outside of the server issues, I’ve certainly enjoyed my time spent with Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. It’s a solid follow-up to a unique shooter series that I don’t think gets enough attention, and if you haven’t given this series a shot yet, this would certainly be a good jumping on point. It’s a nice alternative to the more serious multiplayer shooters out there and even serves up a solid alternative to more like-minded games like Overwatch. You may want to give it a little time to iron out some flaws here and there, but definitely check it out when you get a chance.
Plants vs. Zombies Battle for Neighborville is a beautiful title. We have fun online with different modes of play. Teamplay is important but playing alone s not be the key to success. A time of adaptation is required to master the game and its gameplay. There are a lot of things to do in the game and the title takes on a more significant scale when played with friends. A good surprise in short.
Oozing with things to do and inventive classes to do them with, it elevates the act of shooting plants and zombies to fresh heights. [Issue#169, p.97]
Considered that "Variants" has been completely taken away, and "Abilities" are simplified, Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville definitely failed some expectations, but now it is more rookie-friendly. We can still have tons of fun within, thanks to the new characters and maps.
Battle for Neighborville doesn't go out of its way to surpass expectations, but it's a silly, strange, joyful game – one I'm glad was greenlit.
While the art, gameplay and music are fine, it feels like EA made a game so exclusively for children that their parents won't want to play it with them, leaving them to be influenced alone. Even if you can tolerate the tone and have the wherewithal to not spend too much money on DLC, Neighborville is fine. It just won't be your best purchase EVAR.
