Rated 10 out of 10
by EightBit its awesome
The gentleman told me upfront that it was only online play. It was so fun I went and bought a second copy so that we could play with our daughter. Family of gamers. All these bad reviews are ridiculous. Do your research before you buy a game. And I would say 99% of Xbox users have a gold membership. Its not a waste of money. I would definitely recommend this game for anyone of any age.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Wolfmoon Epic game!
This is the best shooter out right now! All of these people giving the game a bad score because they don't have xbox live gold... seriously? You are going to lower the rating to a 1 because you didn't know you needed gold to play an online only game dude!? Ignore them! Anyone over the age of 12 knows that you need gold to go online with xbox games and anyone over the age of 9 reads the front of the case and can see it's online only! Think of Battlefield only third person and highly colorful! Do not be fooled by this games child like exterior because it's not a kiddie shooter at all! You will need to think about how you play and it's very strategic, the graphics are great, the controlls are perfect and the classes are varied with tons of customization and FREE DLC! It's only $30 new right now, it has co-op... i mean what more do you want for $30? There is no offline campaign... big whoop! No one bothers with those anyways, it's not 2002 anymore! Buy this game, you will not regret it!
Rated 8 out of 10 by Gmun Way more fun than expected
Graphically for what it is it looks great. Controls are slightly clunky but more then efficient. Sound is on par for PvZ and of good quality. Gameplay is fantastically fun! We bought this because PvZ was a great fun game that held our attention for years. The spunky attitude has been recaptured magnificently. The game isn't nearly as competitive as "normal" shooters but is just as captivating, if not more. Now foe the bad. The loading is regular and rather lengthy. Time between matches is 1 minute. And the big "killer" is you can't join a match as a party. One member must find a match and then invite their party to the game. At the end of the match tour party will move as a group in the next. But a lack of party join has proved to be frustrating to say the least. Garden Ops does have a party option. So why this was left out for multiplayer I am unsure. Lack of party joining aside, this game is great fun and will continue to provide us a much neeses break from the dull grey that is standard shooters:) Hope to see you on the battlefield!

Rated 10 out of 10 by Wehrmkid Super Fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This game is so fun. It is my favorite game and I play it as much as possible. Sometimes it glitches and you can't see other players/ yourself or you can't shoot but it is a great shooter for both kids and adults.
Rated 1 out of 10 by 1gamermom HIDDEN COSTS
MEMBERSHIP REQUIRED plus the cost of the game. Yes, it says so on the box in a half inch by half inch square. Right next to 3 other squares. Very shady way to get the money. Legal? Yes, but very slimy
Rated 3 out of 10 by lisatwin1 Dissapointing :(
My 10-year-old son likes first person shooters (thanks to his older brothers), and I thought this game would be appropriate for him due to the cartoonish appeal and it supported multiplayer meaning he could play with his cousin. After I purchased it, I couldn't figure out how to do local multiplayer, so I googled it only to find out split-screen is only available on the Xbox One. Also, you have to have Xbox live Gold to play (which I have on one account.) I am sure that most parents know that when you go to online multiplayer, you get a lot of language and noise you don't want. I would not recommend this game.to anyone. Hard core gamers will not like it and the online multiplayer is not good for younger players (unless you mute all the other players and yourself.)
Rated 3 out of 10 by autohog Disappointed...
My daughter and I have had such good times playing both the coop mode and vs mode in the original PvsZ. We were so looking forward to battling it out together in the open world of Garden Warfare. We had been so excited and had waited months for our preorder. Honestly it never even dawned on me that we would not be able to play together since that what was so cool and diff about the xbox version of the original game. We were both so disappointed to find out there was no split-screen to play vs mode or even coop to play online as a team. Super disappointed in EA, no more preorders and will be sure to double check the back of the box before any future purchases. On top of that our preorder redemption code didn't work.
Rated 9 out of 10 by stevetherobot Don't listen to all the negativity
When looking at the reviews for this game I found that the only real complaint was that it was only online and you have to have gold for it.
This is true, but so is Titanfall. Titanfall is being highly praised right now for it's gameplay, nobody cares that it's only online.
I will go over some of the pros and cons of this game
Cheap price ($30)
VERY fun gameplay
Easy to get into
Free DLC in the future
No micro transactions yet
Not a lot of content at the moment
No splitscreen on Xbox 360
Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare is definitely worth the $30 I paid for it, if you want a shooter that is more relaxed then COD or Battlefield then you should definitely pick this game up, it is really worth it.
Rated 1 out of 10 by CF07 Requires Xbox Live Gold to Play!
Do not be fooled into thinking this would be a fun game to just pop in and play. It isn't that simple. This game requires you to not only have an EA Origins account (which you can only sign up for if you are 13+), but it requires you to have an internet connection and Xbox Live Gold. There is no offline play whatsoever. Trying to access anything without both internet and XBL provides you with the same prompt of, "Please connect to Xbox Live to continue.". The game itself isn't too bad to play, but just like Call of Duty, it gets old really fast when you don't have friends to play with. I would only recommend this to hardcore, Xbox gamers who are really into CoD, Battlefield, Gears of War, and/or Halo.
