Plants Vs. Zombies made its way to the X-Box this past week via the X-Box Live Network. If you haven’t already done so… you should buy it immediately.
This is one of those rare games that only comes out every decade or so and that absolutely everyone in the entire world seems to enjoy playing. No joke, go wheel grandma into the living for some Plants Vs. Zombies gaming if you don’t believe me.
The idea behind Plants Vs. Zombies is that your lawn, roof and backyard are all battlefields that you the player must defend in an effort to prevent the zombie apocalypse from reaching your house and thus, your deliciously tender brains.
To do this you set up a defensive barrier built entirely out of various plants. Each plant performs a specific task and therefore to fend off the rushing zombie horde you’ll need to combine a variety of plants in creative ways to hold off the horde and advance to the next round.
As you progress you’ll be able to genetically beef up your plants as well as acquire new plants to help in the fight. The main storyline consists of 50 different stages and will take you roughly 4 – 5 hours to complete. In addition to the main storyline there are also many entertaining mini games to complete as well. All-in-all, you can easily blow 10 hours playing this video game and enjoy every single minute of it.
Nothing’s really changed from the original PC version other than the addition of a two player mode. So, seriously, go get grandma and the two of you can tag team some zombies together.
The menus and graphics have had a few tune-ups but overall it’s the same memorable game that has found its way across multiple platforms. I saw a young Asian girl playing it on her iPhone the other day. I asked her if I could play and she started to cry… I nearly said, “whatever bitch, I don’t care” … but my better judgment got in the way… that and her mother gave me a look like she would end my life if I said another word.
Buy the game!
