It'd be easy to mistake this app for something in the Plants vs. Zombies series, thanks to its copycat gameplay and aesthetics, but while it's more violent, it's still entertaining to play. SWAT and Zombies Season 2 differs from the friendlier game by using human fighters instead of plants, raising the blood factor of the on-screen action despite the cute and colorful look of the app. That said, the app succeeds in co-opting what makes Plants vs. Zombies so much fun. There are lots of human fighters with different abilities to choose from, and more than 50 weapons. There's also a load of kooky zombies (Skateboarding zombies? Zombies who kill by throwing bowling balls?), all of which do ridiculous kinds of damage. Things start slowly enough, but with each level, the difficulty rises and the need for strategy grows.

Around chapter two, your upgrade progress slows way down, and that's when the amateurs get separated from the dedicated zombie killers. Though currency and upgrades are fairly easy to earn both by completing levels and by watching ads, the trickle of both is slow. More ambitious or impatient types could prefer to pay for faster progress as well as the luxury of not watching ads. Still, different difficulty levels and different modes provide plenty of ways to play, and the selection of agents, zombies, and weapons provide plenty of reasons to stay. Never mind that SWAT and Zombies Season 2 shamelessly emulates another company's hit game series -- just be glad it does it well.
