Pros Fantastic, frenzied, whimsical, zombie killin' fun!
Cons No Win8 version for my touchscreen laptop. I'd love to play this on a 13" screen.
Summary Anyone who complains about the IAP model of this game is just a whiner. I understand that a lot of people are just philosophically opposed to that model of gaming. But, PvZ 2 applies it in the most unobtrusive way possible. I'm about 1/2 way through the game and have not felt the need...emphasis NEED...to purchase anything extra. I haven't felt the desire to either. Some people might. That is their choice. Just a great all around fun game. No purchase necessary.
Pros Dave is in it.
Cons EA sucks.
Free model does not fit this game.
Summary Paying ~$2 per plant for the original plants we loved from PvZ1 is ridiculous. you can now purchase in game money you can use to purchase plant food and beat nearly every level by throwing your money at the screen. Take this game back to the original paid model where it belongs. EA screwed up a really awesome game. I'm sad to admit it, but I'm back to playing my PvZ1.
Pros All the flare of the original plus new content
The IAP model isn't too intrusive
Cons Literally no cons
Summary Get it now!
