Initial warning this post has a-lot of spoilers about the still unreleased plants vs zombies 2. Well unreleased in the U.S anyway. You have been warned!
5 reasons you should play plants vs zombies 2 (once it hits the U.S.)
#1 new plants
The new plants are awesome, especially with the updated graphics. The bloomer rang is great for dealing out damage multiple times. These are great for some of the tougher zombies the game throws at you.
The bonk Choy is a nice option for zombies that are flying or in those cases where zombies get past your defenses since they can punch backwards.
The snapdragon is also a good addition that covers a wide area with fire although not the heaviest damage dealer in the game.
#2 new zombies
The Ra zombie is probably one of the most annoying of the new enemies since it will steal your sun when you are distracted by other threats.
The camel zombies always come in threes and are very tough to take down. Bloomerang works really well on these.
The explorer zombie is the second most annoying zombie in the game since it literally walks through your defenses unless you can freeze it.
#3 new touch abilities
These abilities change the way the game is played since it marks the first time you can directly affect the zombies. You do need coins to buy them though. Of course you no longer need coins to buy new plants so it evens out.
#4 new interface
As mentioned before, you don’t have to save coins to buy new plants. This is because the way that the new interface is designed,all plants are unlocked by traveling to specific places on the map. This means you can save your coins to buy power ups. The design for each level is also very whimsical.
#5 free to play
Yes it’s absolutely free! I know this is not always a good thing ,but as you can see, pop cap decided to go with a system where you can buy things ahead of time but don’t really have to. Everything that is available can be unlocked in game.
