You shouldn’t need this review to tell you that Plants vs. Zombies is a must buy. Plants vs. Zombies, originally released on the PC in 2009, has come to just about every platform since then (and has done well in all) and now has come to the new PS Vita. So this review will be to tell you if the Vita is another great version and if anything was messed up.
In Plants vs. Zombies, players place different types of plants and fungi, each with their own unique offensive or defensive capabilities, around a house in order to stop a horde of zombies from eating the brains of the residents. The playing field is divided into a number of horizontal lanes, and with rare exceptions, a zombie will only move towards the player’s house along one lane. As you progress through the beautiful game, you unlock new weapons (like the jalapeno that incinerate everything in its path), new zombies (like bucket-as-a-helmet zombie), and new parts of your yard.
This is your basic concept of Plants vs Zombies, if you have experienced it the Vita does bring some minor new things to the game, the graphics and gameplay for a mobile device is the best one so far, for the Vita version you have the choice to use the touch screen or the buttons for your controls, and a neat feature is you can just gently shake you Vita and it will collect sunlight and coins for you off your screen rather having to touch or select them.
Overall if you don’t have a mobile version of this game and have a Vita this might be what you been looking for. The PlayStation Vita game is just as good as any version if not better. Fighting against screen door shield-packing ghouls is brilliant, and the controls feel perfect. Plants vs Zombies is one the best downloadable games the Vita has right now. The only thing is the hefty price of 14.99, all depends if you want the game on the Vita or not. If you haven’t played any or if the first one you did play was on PC in 2009 it might be time to upgrade to this version.
