In Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2, the zombies have conquered, and the plants are on the attack for the first time in this shooter. In your Backyard Battleground you can edit your character’s abilities and customizations, choose quests, jump into co-op or multiplayer action modes, or invite up to three friends in to your backyard to start a party and take on AI – defeat a wave, and a more powerful wave will show up.
You can also switch teams to challenge your friends. Backyard Battleground is your own frontline base to plan your attack before you enter the battle for Zomburbia.
It's fun, beginner-friendly and thanks to the addictive level-up mechanics it offers lots of replay value, too.
Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 is a great online shooter with an unexpected wealth of single-player stuff, too.
Even if it's not as fresh as its predecessor, Garden Warfare 2 still guarantees dozens of hours of stress-free, pure multiplayer fun.
The colourful visuals, fun and varied characters, the range of play modes and the collection aspect with the game packs will continue to keep gamers of all ages entertained for hours.
From a small game has grown a full-featured multiplayer action, that scores on almost all fronts. Only the single-player part could be more sophisticated. But the crazy game world and addictive gameplay will make it up for you.
Characters and decorations are so colorful and lively that they fall just a few inches short of Pixar standards. It’s impossible to play GW2 with a hardcore competitive mindset, but it’s a great specimen of “shooters for all family”. [Issue#207, p.64]
