Plants Vs. Zombies

First of all, I'm sorry for not posting as much. Right now I don't have any underrated games that I can review without a T.V. recording device, so I'm just gonna review a game I thought was pretty good.

Plants Vs. Zombies
The first thing you discover about the game is visible even before you install it. It is one of the most unique games of modern gaming. The next thing you notice is that it's made by PopCap, a company known mostly for casual games. Now, onto the gameplay.

If one were to generalize this game as one type of game, most people would call it a tower defense game, but at the same time, it's sorta, not. You have five rows of lawn (or whatever else the game gives you) on which to plant your army. You start out with simple weapons, weak peashooters, wall-nuts which serve as barriers, and sunflowers, which give you sun, the currency for planting plants. as you play the game, you unlock more complicated and powerful plants.

The game is split into five chapters, each comprised of 9 levels, and a minigame. The levels are never too hard to overcome, but you still can fail if you're reckless. Each level is just long enough to be satisfying, but not long enough to be exhausting. Every level also has a set-up time of around 30 seconds, and then continuous zombies with 2 or 3 massive waves, the last being the biggest.

While the main campaign is not very long, (2 or 3 hours) after you fight the final boss, you get minigames, a zen garden, puzzle mode and survival. and you can start the adventure mode again, but your neighbor Crazy Dave, picks out 3 plants that you must use for that level.

Overall, this game definitely makes the $10.00 worth it, with lots of replay value, addictive gameplay, and a distinct personality that is guaranteed to make you laugh.
