Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 for PC, PS4 and XONE is the sequel to the multiplayer TPP shooter Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare released in year 2014. The game is a part of the Plants vs. Zombies universe, in which plants are fighting against funny zombies, and was developed by PopCap studio, commonly considered to be one of the best companies creating casual games. The company developed such games as Peggle, Bejeweled, Zuma and Bookworm.
Story in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 tells about an eternal battle between plants and zombies. This time the undead managed to completely overrun the Suburbia city, which became Zomburbia. Player’s task is to make things as they were before.
Gameplay in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 is mostly focused on multiplayer, but the developers also created a single player mode in which the player faces enemies controlled by AI. However, the main center of the game lies in multiplayer battles.
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 offers the game modes known from the first game as well as new forms of activity. Herbal Assault allows up to 24 people to play as plants and Graveyard Ops is a four-person cooperative mode in which zombies are defending themselves from waves of enemies. The game takes place on various maps – there are twelve of them available; among them, the player will find locations set i.e. in space. The list of available characters is long, there are more than 100 character to choose from, including both old friends (The Scientist, Foot Soldier, All-Star, Engineer, Cactus, Chomper, Peashooter, and Sunflower) as well as completely new ones (Captain Deadbears, Super Brainz, Citron and Rose). Owners of the first installment can import most of their characters to the sequel. All heroes have different specializations and weapons.
The game features a cartoonish graphic design, typical for the Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare universe. It was generated using the Frostbite engine, known from such productions like Battlefield 4, Star Wars: Battlefront and Need for Speed. It might not be the best looking game available on PC, PS4 and XONE, but it still looks very nice and one can hardly say anything bad about it.
