With more generous pacing and worthwhile single-player content, Garden Warfare 2 would have been a truly outstanding game, but even without those things, it's a robust shooter with an astounding level of mechanical diversity that all but guarantees you'll encounter something new every round you play. And of course, its endearingly ridiculous presentation remains true to the series roots, further proving shooters don't have to be gray and gritty to offer a rewarding experience.

Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 is a masterclass in sequel creation, an example of what happens when you listen to criticism and strive to create a fun game more than an addictive business model, something people want to spend time and money on as opposed to something they feel compelled to do.

The love and care that was poured into this title is obvious, and translates into a terrifically entertaining experience that I encourage everybody to try out. Play with your friends, your parents, your kids; anybody who has ever enjoyed a video game should have a blast with PvZ Garden Warfare 2. In fact, I think I'm going to go load up Rose and turn some more zombies into goats right now.

A triumphant follow-up to one of 2014's most unexpected treats, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 fleshes things out with loads of modes, new characters and the Backyard Battleground, making for an exciting shooter that never fails to raise a smile. Tuck in.
Stefan LFeb 23, 2016
Even with other additions like the Backyard Battleground and new characters, this largely feels like more of the same. It’s not as exciting and refreshing as two years ago, but that’s not too big a complaint when it’s more co-op defence and liberally borrowed and adapted multiplayer, all slathered in the quirky Plants vs. Zombies universe.

PopCap Games paid close attention to the criticisms of the original game and ultimately crafted a worthy sequel. Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 doesn’t change much, instead building on the successful gameplay of the original. In many ways it feels like an expansion, but one that comes packed to the brim with new content.
Brad ShoemakerFeb 26, 2016
It feels like a little piece of cosmic justice that while the Medal of Honor reboot failed to make any inroads with that audience, Garden Warfare somehow became a runaway success that warranted a full-priced, fully featured sequel. While a potential third Garden Warfare will need to do more than simply pile on additional plants and modes to justify itself, this quirky shooter's second installment ought to stay green for a good long while to come.
Dave RuddenFeb 23, 2016
Under its attractively bright and cartoony art style, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 has a great amount of modes and customization options to enjoy, whether alone against the AI or with online allies and enemies. The interesting abilities options of the six new character classes gave me something to sink my teeth into, and the customization options are a great reward for playing outside my comfort zone.
Arthur GiesFeb 18, 2016
If Garden Warfare was an attempt to make a multiplayer-only shooter that just about anyone could enjoy, Garden Warfare 2 takes that a step further by removing the original's budget-priced compromises. Making the original PopCap concept into a shooter isn't novel anymore, and I hope that the developers pay attention to the game's potential balance challenges over time to make sure that "asymmetric" doesn't become "lopsided." But Garden Warfare 2 stands strong on its own, and with friends.

Overall, though, it’s the childlike qualities at the center of GW2 that are the most important — a seemingly limitless energy, a fearlessly goofy aesthetic and a commitment to making playing fun above all else. Sure, you’re not going to see this at any serious competitive tournaments, but you will laugh and smile a lot if you round up some friends and family to play with, and that seems to get to the heart of why we play video games in the first place.

Popcap has improved upon the template they laid out with Garden Warfare, fleshing out the sequel with an array of things with which you can wile away your time. It’s excellent family friendly fun but genuinely great to play for all ages. Get it, play it with your little ones, and play it on your own. You’ll love it.
Simon FitzgeraldFeb 26, 2016
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 improves upon its evergreen predecessor by expanding the scope of the title with single player content and new classes and modes. Popcap has responded to the criticisms pointed at the original release well, and while this isn't a revolution by any stretch, the format has been precisely pruned for shear joy.
Melanie EmileFeb 18, 2016
Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 is nothing short of an amazingly delightful third-person shooter. It’s goofy and serious all in one place—the ridiculousness of plants facing off against zombies, but the serious controls and competitiveness of any AAA shooter. I have turned a fair amount of people onto Garden Warfare, and I have no plans on stopping now. It is a solid experience that anyone with a competitive streak can enjoy.
Timothy NunesFeb 19, 2016
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 has the potential to be a sleeper hit. The multiplayer is a major focal point and the classes have a lot of variety and complexity ready for every level of player. The repetitiveness aside, there’s enough here for everyone to have a good time, especially when friends are involved.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 es una secuela que no ha arriesgado demasiado, pero de manera inteligente ataca una de las mayores carencias del anterior juego, la ausencia de una campaña o modo historia. Más personajes, nuevos mapas, un sinfín de desbloqueables y toneladas diversión por delante en un juego en el que uno de sus mayores valores es ser único dentro del género, cualidad que permanece inalterable dos años después.
Jesús BellaFeb 18, 2016
El jardín de EA evoluciona con una entrega que pasa como una apisonadora al primer Garden Warfare. Mejoras jugables, más modos de juego, nuevos personajes, coleccionables en cantidad, un pequeño mundo abierto… y sobre todo interés en que sean los usuarios los que decidan si quieren jugar solos o acompañados, ya sea en online o a pantalla partida.
Salva FernándezFeb 18, 2016
Plants vs Zombis: Garden Warfare 2 hace bueno el más y mejor que toda secuela debe aspirar a proponer. Con una base que es mucho más sólida y completa que la de su predecesor cuando salió a la venta, el juego de PopCap mantiene las virtudes que lo hicieron tener en cuenta a pesar de no ser el enésimo shooter ambientado en la guerra moderna.

Es gibt viele Fun-Shooter. Sie alle sehen lustig aus, haben eine humorvolle, fast kindische Hintergrundgeschichte und sind im selben Comic-Stil gehalten wie Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. Was die meisten nicht haben, ist ein Shooter-Gameplay, das so fein abgestimmt ist. Dadurch hebt sich Garden Warfare hervor: Erst mal ist es ein hervorragender Shooter, der einfach nur gut funktioniert, dann erst macht er Spaß und ist ulkig.
Jan WöbbekingFeb 25, 2016
Die neuen Klassen sprühen vor albernen Ideen und abwechslungsreichen Attacken, die erweiterten Arcade-Modi sind spannender als je zuvor und die idyllischen Schlachtfelder sind auch technisch eine Augenweide. Die Einzelspielermissionen können zwar keinen vollwertigen Story-Modus ersetzen, sind aber trotzdem eine fordernde Ergänzung, zumal man auf der Oberwelt auch kooperativ viel Spaß haben kann.
Carole QuintaineFeb 18, 2016
Ce nouvel épisode reste fidèle à l'ADN de la licence : fun et déjanté. Impossible de ne pas tomber sous le charme de ses fleurs et de se son sens de l'humour ! Les nouveaux personnages apportent de la fraîcheur et Front de Jardin ajoute un cachet candide et sucré à l'expérience. Bref, malgré un petit déséquilibre entre les deux camps, avec ce Garden Warfare 2 la série de PopCap s'étoffe et se densifie pour notre plus grand plaisir !
Laurely BirbaFeb 24, 2016
Lucide sur la pauvreté du contenu de Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare, PopCap Games s’est retroussé les manches pour proposer un menu nettement plus copieux avec Garden Warfare 2. Le multijoueur est toujours à la fête et il y a de quoi faire entre les modes classiques et les nouvelles activités opposant les Plantes aux Zombies.

On ne peut s’empêcher de déplorer le manque flagrant d’équilibrage entre les deux camps ou encore de pointer du doigt les frustrations engendrées par son système de progression basé sur les mêmes mécanismes qu’un bête free-to-play. C’est d’autant plus dommage alors que tout est bel et bien gratuit ici ! Passé ces quelques défauts, les nouveaux personnages et modes de jeu supplémentaires possèdent tous les arguments pour vous charmer.
