Plants vs. Zombies 2 It’s About Time: A Deadly Follow-Up That Delivers
Warning: if you suffer from insomnia or you don’t need another excuse to procrastinate on your duties at work or at home, do not download this game.
PopCap Games released Plants vs. Zombies back in 2009 and it changed the game altogether for many a game enthusiast. With that in mind, the arrival of its successor and follow-up to the megahit Plants vs. Zombies 2 was anticipated by many and dreaded by some. In a nutshell, I would say that the game does not disappoint in the least. In comparison to the first game, PVZ 2 has definitely stepped up a notch when it comes to both the length and level of difficulty of the game.
It’s almost impossible to get bored as I personally had to pull myself from my iPad just to get my day’s work done. There are four worlds that are accessible on Crazy Dave’s Time-Space Taco Map (and yes, you read that right, Crazy Dave made it to PVZ 2). These worlds include Ancient Egypt, Pirate Seas, and Wild West. The fourth world will only be revealed once the first three have been mastered.
Graphics are stunning in PVZ 2 and I really enjoyed seeing what new species of zombie the creators would come up in each succeeding level. One main objective of the game is to collect a certain number of keys so that you can unlock certain bonus levels. These keys are dropped by zombies as you attempt to kill them off with your choice of plants.
While in-app purchases are available for coins, special plants, and other unique weaponry, they are not necessary to get ahead in the game; although your progress may not be as quick. Overall, the game is a success in every way and it will take some time to finish it which in this case is definitely a good thing as you don’t want the fun to end.
