The Zombies Ate My Brain!

As anyone who knows me realizes: I love zombies and cute things. I occasionally think zombies are cute, especially in the new PopCap game, Plants vs. Zombies. In this fun and fluffy game, zombies are trying to cross your lawn to your house to eat your brains. To stop them, you must plant different varieties of plants to protect you. (The plants have cute little faces too!) There are numerous types of plants, including peashooters, sunflowers, and "wall-nuts." The zombies are just as numerous, with different types that vary in speeds, modes of attack, and size. My favorite zombies is the Dancing Zombie, which looks just like Michael Jackson in the Thriller video. This zombie calls up back-up dancer zombies who proceed to do the Thriller dance across your lawn.

If you get bored of adventure mode, there are some great alternatives: the Zen Garden, puzzles, survival mode, and mini-games. The titles of the minigames and puzzles are funny puns on zombie films and pop culture in general, which gives it an extra dimension of fun. Plus, who can resist dancing and singing to There's a Zombie on Your Lawn? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0N1_0SUGlDQ

I would recommend this game to any casual gamer or any zombie fan. The only problem with this game is that it may be over too soon for those really talented gamers out there to be worth the cost of the game. I, as a decidedly untalented gamer, love this game and will be having fun with it for quite a while.
