Plants Vs Zombies

Plants Vs Zombies was released almost one and a half years ago on the PC and it was recently ported to XBLA on September 8th. Bottom line, buy this game. It is a little pricey on the Xbox Live Arcade at 1200 XBL points, but it is fully worth the price.

Plants Vs Zombies is a tower defense game in which you must plant different types of garden plants in your front and back yards and roof in order to repel the oncoming zombie invasion. Some of these plants include a pea shooter, Venus fly trap, and cactus, all of which are used for defending the house where you reside.  For those of you who have ever played a PopCap game like Peggle, you know of the addictive, psychedelic properties that their games contain. It is hard to describe, but the humor of the game, the controls, and the story (or lack there of), make this game's gameplay incredibly addictive and fun.
In addition to the main campaign, there are also a verses mode, horde mode, and mini game mode that add to the replay value.

So the design of the game can be divided into two different parts: Visuals and sound. The visuals of the game are very bright and vivid, though not HD, but like I've said, the visuals of a game are the first thing that you see but the least important aspect of a game. The sounds of the game are very humorous as sometimes the zombies will say some little catch phrases like "Brains" and "They're Coming!" It really sucks you into the fun that is to be had.

Bottom line:
If you played this game on the PC there is little that has changed. At the price of 15 dollars, this is a really great deal. If you are a fan of strategy or tower defense games you will definitely like this game, and if you're not, play the demo and you'll know whether or not you like the game.
