Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 is an action game that combines elements of tower defense games and third-person shooter games. It is also a sequel to the first game in the series.

This is the first game in the series to come with a hub world. This area of the game gives you access to different levels and helps you find out where to go next. It also provides you with a list of all your accomplishments as well as the missions you must still complete.

While the first game limited what you could do with others, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 comes with a multiplayer mode that is perfect for playing the game with a friend. You can both play in a split-screen mode that lets you both keep track of your actions in the game. It also comes with ways to play online.

Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 includes a number of different modes and mini games too like Flag of Power mode. You play as either a plant or a zombie and control a team of plants or zombies. Your team must stop the waves of invading creatures. Each time you defeat one wave, the game will increase in difficulty. You also receive crates after each level that give you weapons and other items that you can use.

In Garden Ops, you can play with up to four other people. You need to defend your garden from attacking zombies and go up against two big bosses. Graveyard Ops is similar but makes you a zombie defending your graveyard from invading plants. There are nine other modes of play too, including one where you play as a gnome trying to plant bombs and one that asks you to locate and bring back certain objects hidden in the game.

Taking place after the events of the first game, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 includes brand new characters designed just for this game. You'll learn more about the battles fought between the two sides before picking which side you want to help. While Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 is sometimes a little violent, it's still a pretty fun game that you can now play on your own or with others online and in your home.

  • Includes a split-screen option for playing with someone in the room with you
  • Is the first game in the franchise with a solo mode
  • Has lots of impressive graphics
