Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3):
Kids say (5):

Though not as serious as some, this card battle game does have a complexity and depth that will appeal to fans of the genre -- if they have a sense of humor. While Plants vs. Zombies Heroes doesn't mark the first time the mutant flora have battled the undead, and it won't be the last, this card battle game does put more of a strategic spin on things than we've seen from the ongoing conflict since the original Plants vs. Zombies game. This also adds a fresh take on this war by adding new boss characters, each of whom not only commands the usual minions but also has its own individual attacks. Just don't be fooled by the cartoonish antics of the flowers or flesh eaters; this is a deep and somewhat complicated card battle game that requires strategy. It's possible younger gamers might get frustrated at first, or their parents might get frustrated when their kids get the hang of it sooner than they do. Of course, fans of serious card battle games won't appreciate the goofy humor or silly characters, while fans of action games won't like that you have to politely wait your turn. But if you're looking for a chuckle while fighting for your survival, or if you're as big of a fan of card battle games as you are this series, Plants vs. Zombies Heroes will give smart warriors a strategically good time.
