Really fun and wacky multiplayer game

When I first saw this game I was not sure I would like it that much, but I thought to give it a try anyway and I have to say that it is brilliant. I am no fan of shooters really, but the innocence and fun that this one brings compares to nothing. The violence is all a joke as well there really isn't any (unless a sunflower falling over is a bit much). There is no talk of death in the game either instead of team death match it is team vanquish to make it more family friendly and it is really fun. To make it even better now free downloadable content has been made bringing a whole new level, mode and more character customizations. At the moment there is a real mix of modes with classic survival to team vanquish or gardens and graveyards (not forgetting the classic modes of these and the all new gnome bomb mode). Overall: violence 3/10, family friendliness 8/10, fun 9/10. Hope this helped

PvZ

as a learning tool kids and teens can learn to strategize but that is about it. This games violence is nothing to be concerned and the humor is top-notch. My only concern is the ability to talk to players who think it is "funny" to swear at small children. I highly recommend this game.

Violent and very fun

Great shooter game for those kids that like PvZ. And it's rated E10+, so those kids who aren't teens yet can play. However, there is pretty bad content, for example: the engineer zombie, his pants run a little low, so that probably boosted the rating to E10+ immediately. And then there's the "blood", which is really green goo, but it's close to blood. Fortunately, it's very rarely seen, and I've only seen it in a picture (Bonk Choy punching a browncoat, having goo fly out of his arm) and a mini clip (chomper chomping a zombies neck, then head). AND, if no restrictions are set to chatting with people and them chatting to you, 0-20 people can hear what you are saying with a headset on, and they can talk to you. Fortunately, what they are saying SHOULD be okay because, well, almost everyone who plays this is likely to be a kid. Also fortunately, you can mute players and unmute them anytime. Other than this, no chatting online gameplay is really fun, because there is pure co-op, garden ops, and team vs team modes. Also, people can revive you (sunflowers do it best) and heal you (sunflower only), and are likely to work with you on doing something like capturing a garden, or vanquish a plant/zombie. So overall. This game has some pretty good co-op. Oh yeah, also, this game is not really that "scary", because the blood, zombies, plants, basically everything, is animated. Also, this game was made a bit better by replacing "death" or "kill" with "vanquish". And this game is also really fun, having the experience of being one of your fun PvZ plants or zombies, and using a variety of weapons to beat the other team strategically, and also the co-op is amazing. So I suggest you play this game, but just keep it to the 10+ year olds. P.S. Weapons are like guns and stuff, but not totally bad.

Garden Warfare: A Unique Shooter

Garden Warfare is not like today's "black and gray" shooters like Call of Duty. PopCap made a really bold move to go from a casual genre like tower defense to an intense one like a shooter. Most would think that this game would end up in the bargain bins in no time, and yet, it is quite amusing. This game combines shooter elements with the quirky elements from the series' two previous entries. As Common Sense said, green blood does show up when zombies are shot, but it is hardly visible and shouldn't be much of a problem for kids who are 8-9 and up. This game may look like a child's game, but this would appeal to pretty much any age of gamer. Remember this one thing, though; if you are a fan of casual games, like the previous entries in Plants vs. Zombies, this game probably isn't for you. If you have a friend or family member who wants the Xbox One version, you may be better suited to use the exclusive Boss Mode, which uses a tablet and is a mini-game like setup that is very similar to the previous games. All in all, this is a very well-made game, and with a pricetag that is half of most games AND free DLC, this is also definitely worth the cash.

My favorite game!

This is my favourite game but it can be a bit violent and can be boring for younger players. Be mindful that while having an head set on 3 to 20 other people will hear what you are saying. There is no blood unlike the game rating and there is some crude humour on the engineer because his pants run low and you can see his but crack.

Shooter + Comedic = Great for older Kids

this is a shooter game which contains guns and pea shooters and many more comedic weapons but you can go on multiplayer mode which people can use voice chat so if they go on multiplayer tell them to mute all people in the player list that has a speaker icon next to their name or the people that have a mic connected may start swearing. other wise, great for mature 9 year olds

I used to enjoy this game a lot

Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare is a pretty fun game. I mean, its basically a children's version of a multiplayer shooting and fighting game, what kid isn't gonna love it. And in this version you can control plants, and ZOMBIES. It is pretty easy to play, not a lot of different or hard to use controls. It has tons of gamemodes, but for learning, not so much. The point of this game is to beat your enemy in different ways and to defend the garden if you are a plant, their is really not much learning here. Violence is at a low, plants can swallow, bullet seed, pea blast and neddle zombies, some can catch zombies on fire or poison them. Different plants have different attacks, but its not very bad. Zombies can shoot (with guns) and use rpgs and etc. attacks but its really more of a funny game then a serious shooter. No language, should be fine for anyone 9+. You can play online with others, but it is probably pretty secure. If you want to have a lot of fun play Gardens and Graveyards. Its the best mode

Blood and Violence

This game has a lot of blood and killing.It always has a bunch of people who hacked it. It needs internet and gold membership. It is fine if you want to here a million people talking in the background. You should probably be at least ten to play.

A Must Buy For PvZ Fans!

Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare Is A Spoof Of Games Such As Call of Duty, Battlefield, etc. It's Goofy, Colourfull, But Not Totally Innocent. Players Cna Compete Against Each Other In Online Game Modes, Or Play Together In 'Garden Ops' Which Is 4 Or Less Players Protecting A Garden From Hoardes Of Unique Zombies. In This Gamemode Specifically, Killing A Zombie Is Depicted Gruesomely. The Zombies, When Shot, Can Emit A Green Liquid, In Great Amounts. Some May Even Be Dismembered When Shot. The Engineer Character Sometimes, *Ahem* Passes Gas, And Minor Sexual References, Such As An Accesory Which Is A Bra Covering The Characters Face, Are Shown. Language... Well There's None, Unless "Gabba Gabba Gaaa" Is Code For "F**k", Which I Highly Doubt. It Is However, A Nice Strategy Game. Protecting A Garden From Hundreds Of Zombies Isn't As Easy As It Seems. Altother, This Game Offers Lots Of Fun, But WARNING: It Gets Very, VERY Repetative.

It has some guns but it's not realistic guns it's made up guns not that bad

Animated colored blood but it's just a little bit. You might expect animated made up guns but not as bad as like realistic shooters. It's about shooting plants or zombies with some weapons that seem like they hurt. But the game does not include drugs/smoking/knifes. So it should be fine for a 9 year old.

I think Plants vs Zombies Warfare is a fun game for kids 8+. There is some violence but not as bad as you might think. The graphics are cartoony realistic but not to real. There are guns but there is no blood or gore. Instead of blood you rarely see green puss. If you don't want your child playing with chatting you just do not plug your headphones into the controller. If you don't want your child to be a zombie shooting cartoon guns your child could just play Garden Opps. There is a choice to buy game coins with money. It is addicting so make sure you have a time limit. It is easy for people to get used to the controls.There is a zombie that shows the top of his butt but you have a choice to play that character. I would recommend this for you.

A fun colorful shooter

No blood or gore, no foul language and no alcohol or drug references or use. This game is perfectly appropriate for anyone 6 and up. But please notice online play is required and you or your child may here other people that may use foul language. But you can always turn it off.
