    It's still a great game but they've added a bunch of ads and annoying features. Because of course they did. Thankfully, they were too lazy to alter the core game. Pro tip: Turn off your internet connection while playing and all of the prompts for ads and such will be disabled. Update: Most of the ads are for clickbait garbage and some are borderline pornographic. Do NOT let your kids play this without disabling ads.

    By Coated Cosine
    Plants v.s. Zombies is a game I used to, and still do, play when I was younger. It would burn time when I was bored and I would play the game even when I wasn’t. The game is based off of zombies trying to eat your brain, or your neighbor’s. Then you use these plants to fight them off. The plants are extremely adorable 🌱 I have fallen in love with a plant. My favorite is the nut. Which is a temporary shield to block the zombies for a reasonable period of time. Instead of a nut, I see it as a potato 🥔 There’s many different types of zombies. Which makes me want to play more. Since some have buckets which is like armor, they have more durability than the Normal Zombie. The Bomb Cherry, I use when I am in an emergency and need to act quickly. Many zombies come and each round will get harder, so the Cherries come in handy when a huge mob comes. I adore PvZ. My children love to play this game as well, it is kid friendly and boosts of creativity. My child, Cameron, has played this game for a long time now, and he has gotten more brave. In game, you fight off zombies with plants. My kid has become braver from this game. Thank you! I will continue to enjoy the game, I look forward to any upcoming updates. Again, thank you.

    I very much enjoy this game and played it when it originally came out. I recently downloaded it and bought the ad free version. I was pretty far in my play through and when I went to play it had completely reset. I was pretty annoyed, but thought maybe I had reset it on accident. Started playing through again and the app has reset again. Not sure if there is some kind of glitch, but I can not bring myself to play right now wondering if all my progress will be lost again.

    Everybody knows this classic series, and even though it’s currently broad (until PVZ3 gets released), the first game is WAY more fun than it looks. The reason it’s so popular with beginners and professionals is because the game is easy to play, but hard to master. Even after you complete Adventure Mode (1 & 2), There’s still so much to do, especially mini games! My favorite is I, Zombie, where you take control of the zombies and play from their perspective. My only criticism to the game is the micro transactions. I mean, I get it, EA now owns PopCap (cry about it), and EA is infamous for their sextillion micro transactions. But, once you take away the micro transactions, PVZ becomes a fun game! As soon as it becomes repetitive, the game hits you with a game changing plant or zombie, like the menacing, 3 feet tall Gargantuar, or the strong Doom-Shroom! Overall, this game used to be perfect before EA came to the scene, however, it’s still fun! If you haven’t played this game yet (Like, seriously? Been living under a rock) PLAY IT, it’s a must-play!

    I think it would be a 6 out of 10. Reason 1: There's excessive ads and half the time it's the same ad over and over again. Reason 2: When I try to play Survival: Day, the game just crashes. Reason 3: There's a lot of microtransactions (even though that's expected from EA). Reason 4: I have to watch an ad to play a minigame. Reason 5: Why do I have to beat the game twice to fully finish it?

    Straight to the point...I love PvZ (Though the first person BS needs a break) I have supported PVZ for years and I was so excited by the new update with penny and opened the app...where was it? I thought maybe I need to unlock it? I went to worlds...no...shop?nope...I pressed learn more and it said once you get 15 plants it’s unlocked...I’m way past 15 plants...were is it? I closed the app fully and re-opened and still couldn’t find it I looked more in the shop and then the app crashed, I thought maybe the app realized something wasn’t right...nope just crashed...please fix it I really want to participate Ps. I also for some reason can’t make a new account and I accidentally deleted my old account when I wanted to re-name it and I couldn’t get it back so maybe add a warning before you erase your progress? Pps. I bought the Apple motor and I don’t have many other plants other than the gem premiums and I wanted to level it up because Apple motor was my favorite plant...and every time I bough a premium piñata I got random premium plants I don’t own so I was wondering if you could make it so it’s more common to get seeds for plants you ACTUALLY OWN?

    This game is so much fun. The dialogue is hilarious, you get a plant each level to try out, and each "world" has a new element that makes it interesting. Night levels have no falling sun and graves, pool levels have water tiles, and fog has well, fog! It's too bad EA had to step in and ruin everything with microtransactions. I'm currently working on trying to beat the original pvz without sun producing plants!

    I love nearly everything about this game. In my opinion it is one of the best games on the appstore and I’ll explain why. The game is completely and utterly unique in theme, planting plants to defend your house from incoming zombies. Now that’s already a great game that you could play for a pretty long time, but eventually you’d get bored of it. They knew this and added plenty of mini games for you to entertain yourself with and it gives the game much more longevity. Also all the levels are not too hard but easy enough that you don’t have to redo them millions of times. I love crazy Dave, I think he is a hilarious character but that’s not the only reason I think he’s great. Other games will have characters who are entertaining like him but most of those are mono dimensional, and they don’t really effect the plot. Yet Crazy Dave is intertwined perfectly. He is your guide for the basics of lawn safety via plants. I think the art design is really good, it’s not too extremely realistic, but it’s not too cartoony either. I love the soundtrack it fits the game really well, it really captures the essence of the game. I love all the little things you can do around the menus as well. I love the entire currency system, unlike many other games it only has one currency. I like that you purchase everything you need from the back of crazy Dave’s van and I like the zen garden concept as well. That’s why I think this is one of the best games on the appstore.

  • +Fun, +Time Burner, -Ads, -Glitches Aug 8, 2021

    By Madison Rudloff
    I would have given five stars, because this game is amazing. It helps me “tame” my ADHD & it satisfies my OCD without fail every time. HOWEVER when I first played the game, there were no ads. Next thing I knew, there were ads every five freaking seconds. Any time I tapped on anything, there was an ad. Most of which, I couldn’t even skip. And then the glitches. The first glitch made it so I couldn’t play my favorite mini game, survival, I had to figure out a way to fix it which ultimately led to me having to restart some of my progress. AND THEN a little while after this, I was playing the game and it deleted ALL of my progress. I love this game & would love to replay it. But under MY circumstances. I had so much stuff. I’m so mad. To end this on a lighter note, if the game makers see this somehow and want tips on adding to the game, I would suggest making an endless survival out of all of the places. So the grass, night time, roof, so on and so forth. Or even making a new place! That would be cool. Anyway I don’t hate this game. I just hate the fact that the glitches literally ruined everything.
  • PvZ is awesome!!! Mar 9, 2019

    By Brian Leverett
    Now this game is the best game for all ages because it starts out nice and easy for beginners and the new update allows more detailed practice for starter players. This game has everything you want to do and it is very long! The only thing that I would like to see added is a co-op mode and a vs mode with a friend or with the computer. Other than that this game is the best for all players. If you don’t know what this game is than download it right now and play and play it! I hope that it keeps getting updated for more stuff to do. The new modes that I said about would make the game never ending and more fun! As always download this game now you will have fun with it! Trust me. I am still playing this game today on adventure 2 day 8. I love survival endless it is a good way to get coins faster. One thing that doesn’t work for me is the cob cannons explosions. I doesn’t blow up the zombies for me. But to end this download this now it’s a good game to do if your bored! This game is great and keep updating it please! 100/1 rating!

    This game gives you TRIPLE ads! Almost every time an ad comes up you have to wait through a brief pause and then find the button to close the ad. 3 times in a row! If I have to concentrate harder to get through the ads than i do the game itself, you have failed. I will just find another game
  • All for money... Jul 22, 2020

    By AwesomeSauce866
    There are so many ads now in PvZ it actually hurts me to play sometimes. I have to turn on airplane mode so I don’t receive an ad each time I complete a level or go to the main menu. They are quite annoying especially since playing before this time there was zero ads. Why did EA have to change this?? Leave the old game to slowly sputter out they literally had to change nothing and the game would still be perfect but they had to go and add so many ads into it. Not only that but a large thing that makes me mad is the fact that marigolds are sold in the shop for $5000 (previously $2500). This is a terrible price when you think about it because of these reasons. The marigold when finally grown to an adult size you get $1000 (one diamond) and can only be sold for $3000 and also in the intermediate levels of growth you get less than $500. This was the whole idea of the marigolds so that players can make a profit but instead you are losing money from buying these. There utterly is no point to them and should be reverted to their previous price of $2500 to “reward us nicely” as Crazy Dave says. I am putting this review as 1 Star because EA and popcap took a great game and made it just annoying. Hopefully this being 1 Star someone might see it but I highly doubt any change will be made. Thank you for reading my frustration!

    Awesome game from my childhood ruined by EA's greed. When I first started replaying this there were basically no ads. Now between every single round I get hit with 2-3 ads and I'm only on the night levels (level 2) I can't wait for the later levels when I spend more time watching ads than actually playing the game. Whatever happened to paying to remove ads cause at this point I would do that?

    It's great and all, but for one, I can no longer play the last stand endless puzzle, all because I didn't restart and leave, so now it just kicks me off, and I've had to restart so many times, and nothing gets saved? You can't even connect it to google play so your stuff can be saved? What's the point if you're not always on it or you leave for a few months. Just fix it. Connect it to SOMETHING! And stop having us waste money if the process ends up disappearing!
  • Listen I love PvZ with a passion, but this game is a trick Jun 2, 2021

    By Ethan Angelo perches
    Have you fine people wondered why this game doesn’t capture the same nostalgia as the PvZ you once knew and loved? Check the publisher. That’s not our beloved Popcap making old moves. That’s EA getting their hands somewhere it doesn’t belong again. This game doesn’t feel like the old one because it’s not. I’m sorry EA I love you and I love the Sims, but you’ve once again stuck your grubby little hands where they don’t belong. I was only able to figure this out because when I noticed this app was free and there was no 99¢ option I looked in my recent purchases and there it was. The exact same game (we all know not exact but you get what I’m saying) same plants, same zombies, different publisher. I didn’t think anyone could screw up a game already published so badly, but are you folks really so strapped for cash you have to not only put ads before each level, but also offer unremovable ad options for items that no player should be using because it’s absolutely immersion breaking and just in general not fun like the exploding walnut and extra lawn mowers? I’m willing to bet I could play a whole game without planting a single plant, and for that you break my heart.

    Ads! Ads! A flood of ads! This is one of the best tower defense games I've ever played! But EA brutally punishes you with 45 to 60 seconds of ads before and between every level! Want a power up? Ad! Want a bonus level? Ad! I deleted the game because I couldn't take it anymore!
  • The game got EA’d, what a shame Jun 21, 2020

    By Puri101
    PvZ, at its core, was a wonderful experience. If you’re playing this in 2020, I assume you know what the gameplay is. Compared to PvZ2, The adventure mode is streamlined and encourages using a variety of plants in each world, the bonus games are fun, and Zen Garden is a relaxing and simple collectathon if that strikes your fancy. Those are the things it does right. However, going back to play this game now (which I had purchased before it was F2P), the staggering amount of ads they’ve implemented make this a headache to play through. Forced ads before AND after levels, ads to play bonus games, ads to supplement the pathetic amount of coins you get when you used to be able to comfortably buy everything just playing the game. And to top it all off, it’s clear the game wasn’t originally designed for ads and they are poorly integrated, since very frequently the level will crash after serving you up the pre-level ad which forces an app restart and watching an ad once more. I understand making it F2P is appealing, but anyone who had purchased the game previously should automatically have the ad-free option unlocked. This wasn’t done, hence my low score. Play something else.

    I love this game. I've been playing it since it first came out years ago on PC, but I only gave 2 stars because it has glitched on me and started my profile over from the beginning TWICE which is frustrating especially after I had won tons of achievements. So I will be deleting this until this issue is fixed.

    Just like the desktop version and that would've rated it a 5 star, but thanks to the ads, it gets 2 stars. I get ads generate revenue, but after each level, switching screens, starting the game, exiting the game ... it's excessive. More than half of the ads can't be stopped after a 5 second delay, either, so you are stuck watching the whole 20 -30 second ad no matter how distasteful that ad is. I've uninstalled, and btw I never clicked on or downloaded any of the content advertised.

    I used to love this game and still do, but after losing all of my progress as well as the coins I had PURCHASED and the game modes I bought with my PURCHASED coins, I have no desire to play anymore. I also paid for the ad-free version, which is ALSO GONE. Yes I could reach out to EA for help, which I attempted to do, but they require you to jump through so many hoops to get that help that it makes it more of a hassle than it's worth. Thanks EA, for ruining one of the best games ever made.

    Okay so the first time I played this, it was on my grandma’s iPad. I loved it. (My parents didn’t really approve, but I didn’t care and neither did my grandma) so I was pretty decent at this, beat all the levels. Now I’m sitting here playing it, and it’s totally addicting years later. I prefer this one to the second one, mostly because the game mechanics seem simpler to me I guess. I just realized that this was the first review I’ve ever written for a game 🤔. So this pretty much had no purpose, I just wanted to let y’all know that this game is great! I mean, for some younger kids, it might be a bit scary... but if you think they can handle it, go ahead and get it for them! Seriously, great game. Can be played online and offline, with WiFi or without it. So it’s great for road trips, being on a plane, in a dead zone, pretty much anywhere your device won’t be harmed. I have no problem with this whatsoever, just wanted to let you guys know what a great game this is! 👍

    PopCap's award-winning game that we've all known and loved since childhood, on mobile, and FREE? Heck yeah! Personally, I see no reason to give this a bad rating. Yes, there's one too many ads, but hey, worth it for a quality, free game. Perhaps more coins should be given for watching videos however? It is kinda hard to get coins without paying for them... Still, however, there's nothing to make me change my mind. It's lovely, fun, and you'll have a guaranteed great time. :)
  • There’s no way past level 5 Jun 21, 2020

    By cixXcaxX
    It’s impossible to get passed level 5 on Night, You don’t have unlimited lawn mowers, so you have to continue watching ads after ads, Then when you’re out, You’re out you lose, Play it again the same thing happens, Also when you use a cherry bomb after you kill a zombie with a lawn mover and they drop sun points, You place it down and it only has like, 2 Tiles down and 1 tile over, Like 2 Y and 1 X So what about the other two or three lanes? It also takes about a minute for that thing to be ready to use again, This is super unfair, They just want you to keep on playing ads, When there’s no possible way to beat it, This game was fun a few years back when I downloaded it on my laptop, I beat it and decided to play it again on my IPhone, I noticed it changed a lot, And so has the levels, Please make Level 5 Night at least possible

    I grew up with this game, and it's still running strong after I just turned 20! Granted it's not the most downloaded game, but this is one game that will take at least a century to die. I mean come on, 100M+ downloads?! That's insane! And this game was even out on the 3DS!
  • PvZ iPhone is a good game. But Let’s avoiding the zen garden and portal combat. Aug 31, 2021

    By MC1129
    Why? Because these 2 are gonna crash the game and it’s gonna start from the beginning or the game keeps crashing or it freezes the game. So Do NOT go to zen garden and portal combat because it will crash the game. So what I’m going to do is what i need to get some coins is go to level 5-10 to keep replay it, But what I can do is I’m going to play some survival mode is what i need is to get loads of marigold and some gold magnets so I can start farming coins so it gonna take a while. Now I have a lot of coins I can now buy packs of minigames, puzzle games and also wooden hammers for endless. And one more thing buy ads remove in the shop so you don’t want to see it all in game. And That is how to farm coins in PvZ iPhone! But always remember Do NOT go to zen garden and portal combat cause it will crash! Thank you! 👍
  • Problem Feb 21, 2020

    By ADD THIS IN ALREADY
    Straight to the point...I love PvZ (Though the first person BS needs a break) I have supported PVZ for years and I was so excited by the new update with penny and opened the app...where was it? I thought maybe I need to unlock it? I went to worlds...no...shop?nope...I pressed learn more and it said once you get 15 plants it’s unlocked...I’m way past 15 plants...were is it? I closed the app fully and re-opened and still couldn’t find it I looked more in the shop and then the app crashed, I thought maybe the app realized something wasn’t right...nope just crashed...please fix it I really want to participate Ps. I also for some reason can’t make a new account and I accidentally deleted my old account when I wanted to re-name it and I couldn’t get it back so maybe add a warning before you erase your progress? Pps. I bought the Apple motor and I don’t have many other plants other than the gem premiums and I wanted to level it up because Apple motor was my favorite plant...and every time I bough a premium piñata I got random premium plants I don’t own so I was wondering if you could make it so it’s more common to get seeds for plants you ACTUALLY OWN?

    I've been playing this game for so long and it's so great but on pool level 9 after I completed it, the peashooter just kept shooting at something that wasn't there and because of that I can't complete the level which means I can't play the other levels and it's really annoying. It will be 5 stars if you please fix this.

  • Paid to remove ads, still unplayable Mar 29, 2020

    By monniewolf
    I paid a few months ago to remove ads. That worked for about a week. Now I’m back to having so many ads that game is almost unplayable. There are ads between every round, ads before and after every bonus game, ads when I visit my zen garden, etc. I spend more time stuck in ads than playing. I’ve contacted EA three separate times (before the lockdown) about it. First time they never responded. Second time they told me it was third party apps playing the ads (lie) and that I need to track down the app and delete it. So apparently according to EA, the inability to restore your purchase of no ads isn’t their fault (it just hangs on connecting to server when you click restore) it’s some invisible third party that they’re not responsible for and that only affects their game and no others. Third time, a response to their third party app theory, got no response. I know it’s only 3 bucks, but how many people are they ripping off? Reinstalling the game doesn’t fix it.
  • Amazing Game, EA ruined it Aug 20, 2019

    By random_nem
    Plants vs Zombies has always been a staple of what a good mobile game is. It is extremely fun to play with an adventure/levels mode, as well as numerous other fun mini games. But now the game that was with me all my life is changed. I got a new Apple ID and got the game again but it’s different from how it once was. EA has made it so that at the begging of every level, you have a rake in the middle of the screen, and to get it you have to watch an add. You used to buy these things with easy to get in game money(no real money spent) but now there’s a focus on watching adds. As well as these optional items, in order to play the game you sometimes need to watch adds. In order to play a bonus game you HAVE TO WATCH AN ADD. Even the adventure part of the game is filled with adds. The final straw for me writing this review was when after completing an adventure level an add popped up. In summary PvZ is an amazing game, but it was much better when although the game cost money, there were NO ADDS. DOWN WITH EA
  • Needs a few improvements to be accurate to the original Aug 29, 2021

    By Asani.M
    For starters. Where is dr zomboss’s revenge, it’s in the HD version? Why not in this one. Same goes for buttered popcorn and also maybe adding the zombies on your lawn song back in to the game would be good. Tree of wisdom was a cool feature I’ve seen in the computer versions of the game and it would be wonderful for it to be in the mobile versions. Another thing that needs to be added is colored marigolds for zen garden, not sure if they are already in the game but if they aren’t then please add them in. And last but not least the trophies you could get for finishing adventure mode for the first time and the trophy you get for beating every mini game would be a very great thing to add to this version of plants vs zombies, money bags aren’t really enough like it doesn't fell like a proper award. But trophies are better rewards. Overall this game was as good as it was when I played it since I was 4. Four Stars
  • I love this game Sep 26, 2019

    By Vampireblizzard88
    This is great. Honestly. I don’t write reviews usually/at all but I had to for this. The graphics are amazing. I see no bugs so far but sometimes my loading screen freezes up and it takes a little long to load. But it seems pretty smooth. The plants and the zombies look really like the first game on the DS. I have been playing Plants vs Zombies for a long time. It was on my DS when I was young and I couldn’t bear to get rid of it or even delete the data to give away. So when I got my 3DS, I still played it on that. It reminds me so much of that, that I am surprised, shocked even at how it’s making my memories come back to me. I am so addicted. I cannot stop playing this game. Home. School. Out with friends. This is quite short but you have done a great job. I really hope you add more to this game. But keep it like the original PVZ one, I love love love this. Thank you for making such a good game!
  • Nice! Aug 30, 2021

    By Parkey boi (ChilliDogz97)
    Ok, let’s get to the point. I love the game. But seriously the ads. If you could just get a paid version of the game, I would rather get it than turn on airplane mode. I love the app though. Suggestion: have a “restart flag” button in survival. I find it highly annoying having to restart an entire survival when I pick the wrong plant. Also, I really hate that you have to grind forever to just literally get 50,000 coins. I love the Zen Garden as well. It feels awesome just getting coins from watering a marigold. Ok, now that I’ve discussed that, I’m going to ask for some new plants once and a while. I don’t think EA taking over is bad, because you have to have ads or a paid game or you won’t earn any cash from making it. But in pvz2 it’s way worse. So stop complaining people. To sum up, PvZ is an awesome game. I also love crazy Dave and his rap. Parko Out!
  • This is great but... May 9, 2020

    By benjamin the grate
    So this game is great, but I would love a few adjustments. I originally played this on the X Box 360 and I loved that you could get different houses and that you would get different decorations for certain achievements and things completed. I would very much like it for would add is. And a plus side is it would not change the gameplay, so if anyone liked it the way is was, no worries. But most of all I would greatly enjoy if you added a sandbox. You would have unlimited sun and would be able to pick the zombies as they come. I know this would be a big change and a lot of work, but just in case one of you read this and agree, I would be very happy with this game. Thank you for you time, money, and hard work. Even if you can’t change it, I appreciate all that you guys do. Sincerely yours truly, Benjamin R Wallace.
  • Nostalgic game with some revisions ): Dec 8, 2020

    By memefreakingod
    I used to play this game 24/7 eight or so years ago. I loved it. And to say the least, this is an amazing game that will trigger anyone’s nostalgia. I only have a few things I hoped are fixed, A: Where is the Gnome Zombie! He was the thing that made me log in under my bed as a kid and just stare at him for hours! So please please please bring him back. B: Whenever I tap the bonus games it just says there’s an error and the only way I can play them is when the game says I haven’t played it yet. Also, for C: this is for the customer, this game is sorta easy until pool level so yeah. D: and finally, can we have more night levels please? I mean, considering that half the plants I own are ‘sleeps during the day’ ones, I want to use them more but also fight stronger zombies in new levels! All in all this is a great game!

    By Les Abernathy
    It's still a great game but they've added a bunch of ads and annoying features. Because of course they did. Thankfully, they were too lazy to alter the core game. Pro tip: Turn off your internet connection while playing and all of the prompts for ads and such will be disabled. Update: Most of the ads are for clickbait garbage and some are borderline pornographic. Do NOT let your kids play this without disabling ads.

    By Penny Klein
    I very much enjoy this game and played it when it originally came out. I recently downloaded it and bought the ad free version. I was pretty far in my play through and when I went to play it had completely reset. I was pretty annoyed, but thought maybe I had reset it on accident. Started playing through again and the app has reset again. Not sure if there is some kind of glitch, but I can not bring myself to play right now wondering if all my progress will be lost again.

    By Big Jr
    I think it would be a 6 out of 10. Reason 1: There's excessive ads and half the time it's the same ad over and over again. Reason 2: When I try to play Survival: Day, the game just crashes. Reason 3: There's a lot of microtransactions (even though that's expected from EA). Reason 4: I have to watch an ad to play a minigame. Reason 5: Why do I have to beat the game twice to fully finish it?
  • +Fun, +Time Burner, -Ads, -Glitches Aug 8, 2021

    By Madison Rudloff
    I would have given five stars, because this game is amazing. It helps me “tame” my ADHD & it satisfies my OCD without fail every time. HOWEVER when I first played the game, there were no ads. Next thing I knew, there were ads every five freaking seconds. Any time I tapped on anything, there was an ad. Most of which, I couldn’t even skip. And then the glitches. The first glitch made it so I couldn’t play my favorite mini game, survival, I had to figure out a way to fix it which ultimately led to me having to restart some of my progress. AND THEN a little while after this, I was playing the game and it deleted ALL of my progress. I love this game & would love to replay it. But under MY circumstances. I had so much stuff. I’m so mad. To end this on a lighter note, if the game makers see this somehow and want tips on adding to the game, I would suggest making an endless survival out of all of the places. So the grass, night time, roof, so on and so forth. Or even making a new place! That would be cool. Anyway I don’t hate this game. I just hate the fact that the glitches literally ruined everything.
  • PvZ Gone Down Hill Sep 2, 2019

    By jamievlong
    Originally bought the game back in 2012. Every few years I like to go back and play the game. I recently started playing again. I re-downloaded the app to see they did some updates with the interface. Nice. My one biggest pet peeve is that the game is now laden with adds and annoying suggestions to watch videos for a stupid item or upgrade. Is this what the game industry has come to? After every level you beat there is a stupid ad. What prompted me to write this review is that I just beat a level that I was working on for a good 20min and then had to watch an ad(ok, normal), then once the ad started, an “x” to close the ad that normally appears after about 8-10secs never appeared. I then went , “fine I’ll just open up the ad to see if this gets it going”. Nothing. Ok. So I then close PvZ then re-open it only to find out it didn’t save because of a stupid ad that glitched and forced me to exit out, close the app, then re-open it. Cmon PvZ team. Your game rivaled Angry Birds years ago. One of the top mobile games. Now you guys are pumping low-tier crap. The stuff you are doing is what sketchy rip off mobile games do.
  • Oct 27, 2021

    By Mal Dorov
    The game itself is enjoyable, but anytime the screen changed an ad would pop up that I was forced to wait through if I wanted to get to the next screen. Some of those ads had 3 different things in 1 instance that I had to wait awhile before it would let me exit back to the game. For myself and anyone who got the game to PLAY the game, the amount of ads just thoroughly ruins the game experience.
  • Good, but could use some work Feb 18, 2019

    By LegendaryDragon1355
    I enjoy the game very much, but it’s not nearly as fun as it was 3-4 years ago The zombies should do more or atleast feel like they more damage every level so if a normal zombie does 3 damage at level 4 it should do 3.5 or 4 damage level 5 as well as the plants costing more al little for another example on level 3 a pea shooter costs 100 on level 5 or 6 it should cost a little more like 105 or 110 see what I mean it would make it harder because right now with a easy to master sunflower farm making sun pretty much infinite so hard to run out and lawn mowers and plants that can 1 shot any zombie meaning you could just spawn them when a high health zombie comes and with its short respawn time you could spam them if you have an efficient sunflower farm which is easy to make. I understand you may think that the game will be be to challenging for kids, but if you look back at the old Mario games they were hard very hard and the kids adapted to them calling them easy. It just strengthened their gaming skills, but you can have a better explain system or tutorial if you want take care.

    By Connor Payne
    The game itself is fun, but the ads are absolutely beyond excessive. If you have a lot of people complaining about there being too many ads then you should fix it. There should only be one ad every 3rd or 4th time it loads. My other issue is that I can only hold my phone in one orientation when playing the game. Sometimes I'd like my phone to go the other way so I can charge it, but when I play this game I have to unplug it or deal with it. It also stops loading when I look at my notifications.
  • Great game, A LOT OF ADS Nov 13, 2021

    By J054ngrhngg
    Really, really awesome game. 3 stars because of excessive ads. I’m a person that is normally fine with watching ads, but this is too much. The pattern; Game…(insert prize)…but before you see it, watch an ad and before you play another game, watch an ad. It goes Game, Commercial, Commercial, Game, Commercial, Commercial, Game. And…you have to click the arrow for it to move on from the ad, but it takes you to the App Store, then you click “back to P v Z,” but it takes you back to the end of the ad. You click the “x” button, but it takes you to the title of the product, then you hit the “x” again and you go back to the game. Either way, great game. But if you won’t pay, be prepared to wait. And remember…you can’t just put down the game during commercials and walk away, then come back…it requires clicks to continue. Sorry. First and last ever review of a game.
  • I have.... mixed feelings. Mar 9, 2018

    By Hahagurlhahalol
    It was great to come back and play this again, but I noticed several things that changed from when I lasted played it. Most noticeably the fact that ads. are. everywhere. As much as I hate them, they didn't anger me too much, it was all the small things. My most massive gripe, is that they removed the groovy song written by the original developers! That song was great! I wanted to hear it again. But E.A removed it for normal credits, without changing the "music video" button. I did see potential use of some the changes, like the fact if you were REALLY awful at keeping money, and still wanted your zen garden to produce, you could watch an ad to get the resources. I hate ads, but nice that they added that. And I swear, I do not remember imitater being buyable with coins. Maybe that's just reverse runoff of PvZ 2 or something, but I swear I don't remember that.

    It's great and all, but for one, I can no longer play the last stand endless puzzle, all because I didn't restart and leave, so now it just kicks me off, and I've had to restart so many times, and nothing gets saved? You can't even connect it to google play so your stuff can be saved? What's the point if you're not always on it or you leave for a few months. Just fix it. Connect it to SOMETHING! And stop having us waste money if the process ends up disappearing!

    I love this game. I've been playing it since it first came out years ago on PC, but I only gave 2 stars because it has glitched on me and started my profile over from the beginning TWICE which is frustrating especially after I had won tons of achievements. So I will be deleting this until this issue is fixed.

    By frinj
    Just like the desktop version and that would've rated it a 5 star, but thanks to the ads, it gets 2 stars. I get ads generate revenue, but after each level, switching screens, starting the game, exiting the game ... it's excessive. More than half of the ads can't be stopped after a 5 second delay, either, so you are stuck watching the whole 20 -30 second ad no matter how distasteful that ad is. I've uninstalled, and btw I never clicked on or downloaded any of the content advertised.
  • ADS ADS ADS!!!! Feb 24, 2021

    By Max dds
    When I played this game a decade ago as a kid, I didn’t remember this many ads. This game is FILLED with ads. Sometimes two 30 second ads back to back! (Once when you receive a new plant and once before you select which plants to use.) the ads also take you directly to the App Store without even clicking on the ads, so you have to manually go back to the game by leaving the App Store and opening PVZ again. Sometimes, the ads break the game after you watch them and you have to close out of PVZ and re open it again, only to watch, you guessed it, more ads. Untimely, the ads are EXCESSIVE. It really takes away from the magic i remember as a kid. Onto a different point, the game is far too easy. Through the entire game, I never lost (exept for the final boss). The lawn mowers take away from the purpose of the game and make it really really easy. Even if they get through you have another chance. I had to challenge myself and not buy the roof lawn mowers or the pool lawn mowers to make this game is even remotely hard.
  • Declined Over Time Jun 22, 2020

    By somebody that lives on earth
    Just redownloaded this classic. I was surprised to see how much worse this has gotten. The biggest problem is obviously the ads. They pop up after a level, guaranteed, and sometimes even BEFORE the level as well. Honestly it’s pretty sad how much this game has gone down in value. Sometimes, if you get an ad before a level, it can glitch the app and force you to start again. This can even happen after the level and can reset your progress completely on that level. I won’t go into detail about all of the other minor changes, but just to sum things up, if you’re here for nostalgia, turn back. Also, if you have in app purchases that you’ve made, don’t expect to get your money back. Apparently EA is just going to keep it. Honestly, PVZ is an ok game now, a shadow of what it used to be on mobile. I can really only recommend playing if you’re playing it casually. EA needs to improve. This feels like an ad-ridden shady mobile game. Get it together, EA.
  • TOO MANY ADS Oct 30, 2019

    By X883
    I get you made the game free now and there WAS a paid version. But now the full game is free and filled with ads. Want rakes? Well instead of buying them like you used to now you watch an ad, random mini games in the start menu I guess is ok but it’s not the original. This game has changed too much with ads and content we never asked for. We never asked for rakes with ads, we never asked for overpowered plants removing all difficult zombies with just one ad, no one asked for a random mini game at the start menu, most currency packs are the same price to get the same amount of coins and it’d be great if either we had an option to remove ads with a purchase or if this just wasn’t the full game and the full game (costing money) didn’t have ads. But the point of this is to voice my opinion on the game. I hate why all challenge is removed from the game just by watching ads, I hate why ads are completely taking over the game, I hate some menu changes.
  • Game is fun but doesn’t always work... Jan 24, 2021

    By daniellebarger69
    I redownloaded it just to kill sometime & started to really get into it. Then one day it stopped working. I would tap the app to open it & it wouldn’t load. It would bring up the PopCap game logo then completely shut down. It wouldn’t show up in my launched apps so I couldn’t close it to try and restart it. I originally deleted it & knew I had a login so I could get my info back so I wasn’t too worried. I redownloaded the app, went to login again & it started me back at square 1. It sucked, but I was fine as long as could play. Played for a few days and then it wouldn’t open again just like before. I tried reporting a bug to EA but it wouldn’t let me & just kept saying “refer to the Q&A” which hasn’t had anything posted since like 2018. If it doesn’t resolve & I end up deleting it again, I probably won’t redownload it bc this is just getting annoying at this point.
  • Used to be more fun Nov 12, 2019

    By ForeverBroken
    The game really was a whole lot more fun than it is now. Honestly, I’m sick and tired of endless ads. They just completely ruined the game. I get that you make money from ads, but why do you people have to be SO greedy with it and milk it to the very last drop? It’s sickening. Plus, the ads freeze way, way, WAY too often. Especially when I’m trying to get a rake in the beginning of a level or trying to get more chocolate and the others in the zen garden. It’s ridiculously pathetic how many times the screen freezes and I’m forced to exit the app and start it up again. Please fix this glitch that is driving me and others crazy. Another really big issue is how much it costs for the mini games now... are you kidding me?! 50,000 coins?! That’s such a rip off. And the game doesn’t even give you many coins like it used to so you have to keep playing the same levels over and over again just to get a tiny bit more coins. It’s all just pathetic. Please fix these issues and more of what others are saying as well because the game really was one of my favorites and now it’s 100% just a sketchy knock off game that makes you so incredibly annoyed and frustrated to the point where you just decide to delete the app and that’s it. If that’s what you people are aiming for, you got it. What a let down.
  • E.A is mean Dec 31, 2020

    By Some nintendo fan
    This is a great game no doubt but my god E.A can be annoying I’m not trying to boycott them or anything it’s just that they purchased the rights to this game by PopCap and monetized the franchise like no tomorrow Ads every minute or so lower coin drop rates increased prices on everything at the crazy Dave shop this is just Grindy bull again they basically made it another pay to win game which I don’t like I’d rather pay 2 U.S Dollars up front then have to pay multiples of that just to progress yes it doesn’t technically make you do that but the option would’ve been lovely I put this thing on airplane mode just to squeeze enough fun on a car ride or something I do like the new menus and ui though and it’s still plants vs zombies at its core if you like spending money or are a masochist consider picking this game up 6/2 apple reviewer points when do I get payed again I don’t jeez

  • All for money... Jul 22, 2020

    By AwesomeSauce866
    There are so many ads now in PvZ it actually hurts me to play sometimes. I have to turn on airplane mode so I don’t receive an ad each time I complete a level or go to the main menu. They are quite annoying especially since playing before this time there was zero ads. Why did EA have to change this?? Leave the old game to slowly sputter out they literally had to change nothing and the game would still be perfect but they had to go and add so many ads into it. Not only that but a large thing that makes me mad is the fact that marigolds are sold in the shop for $5000 (previously $2500). This is a terrible price when you think about it because of these reasons. The marigold when finally grown to an adult size you get $1000 (one diamond) and can only be sold for $3000 and also in the intermediate levels of growth you get less than $500. This was the whole idea of the marigolds so that players can make a profit but instead you are losing money from buying these. There utterly is no point to them and should be reverted to their previous price of $2500 to “reward us nicely” as Crazy Dave says. I am putting this review as 1 Star because EA and popcap took a great game and made it just annoying. Hopefully this being 1 Star someone might see it but I highly doubt any change will be made. Thank you for reading my frustration!

    Awesome game from my childhood ruined by EA's greed. When I first started replaying this there were basically no ads. Now between every single round I get hit with 2-3 ads and I'm only on the night levels (level 2) I can't wait for the later levels when I spend more time watching ads than actually playing the game. Whatever happened to paying to remove ads cause at this point I would do that?
  • Listen I love PvZ with a passion, but this game is a trick Jun 2, 2021

    Have you fine people wondered why this game doesn’t capture the same nostalgia as the PvZ you once knew and loved? Check the publisher. That’s not our beloved Popcap making old moves. That’s EA getting their hands somewhere it doesn’t belong again. This game doesn’t feel like the old one because it’s not. I’m sorry EA I love you and I love the Sims, but you’ve once again stuck your grubby little hands where they don’t belong. I was only able to figure this out because when I noticed this app was free and there was no 99¢ option I looked in my recent purchases and there it was. The exact same game (we all know not exact but you get what I’m saying) same plants, same zombies, different publisher. I didn’t think anyone could screw up a game already published so badly, but are you folks really so strapped for cash you have to not only put ads before each level, but also offer unremovable ad options for items that no player should be using because it’s absolutely immersion breaking and just in general not fun like the exploding walnut and extra lawn mowers? I’m willing to bet I could play a whole game without planting a single plant, and for that you break my heart.
  • The game got EA’d, what a shame Jun 21, 2020

    PvZ, at its core, was a wonderful experience. If you’re playing this in 2020, I assume you know what the gameplay is. Compared to PvZ2, The adventure mode is streamlined and encourages using a variety of plants in each world, the bonus games are fun, and Zen Garden is a relaxing and simple collectathon if that strikes your fancy. Those are the things it does right. However, going back to play this game now (which I had purchased before it was F2P), the staggering amount of ads they’ve implemented make this a headache to play through. Forced ads before AND after levels, ads to play bonus games, ads to supplement the pathetic amount of coins you get when you used to be able to comfortably buy everything just playing the game. And to top it all off, it’s clear the game wasn’t originally designed for ads and they are poorly integrated, since very frequently the level will crash after serving you up the pre-level ad which forces an app restart and watching an ad once more. I understand making it F2P is appealing, but anyone who had purchased the game previously should automatically have the ad-free option unlocked. This wasn’t done, hence my low score. Play something else.

    I used to love this game and still do, but after losing all of my progress as well as the coins I had PURCHASED and the game modes I bought with my PURCHASED coins, I have no desire to play anymore. I also paid for the ad-free version, which is ALSO GONE. Yes I could reach out to EA for help, which I attempted to do, but they require you to jump through so many hoops to get that help that it makes it more of a hassle than it's worth. Thanks EA, for ruining one of the best games ever made.
  • Fix update!....AGAIN Jun 3, 2018

    By HCH753
    UPDATE TO PREVIOUS REVIEW: The game has been glitching the last few days. As I have beaten the game well over 100 times and gotten all but one or two achievements, I typically only get on to play mini games. I was in the middle of playing level 3-5 when the game kept freezing up when I tried to get anything that required watching a video. So I logged off and back on several times. After the last time, my entire game was reset, completely wiped out my progress, FOR THE THIRD TIME. My game started over as if I had never played the game before. I am so annoyed!! Never have I played a game before that the developers think it is ok to reset all progress, MULTIPLE TIMES!! I LOVED this game for a very long time, but now it’s just irritating! I will not be starting over again. I will just finally delete the app, unfortunately, and that makes me very sad to say. The update wiped out my Zen Garden but gave me money for it so no big deal, although I don't need the money and used some to buy back my gardens but my survival mode is locked even though I have ALL of my trophies and most of my achievements!!! Please UNLOCK SURVIVAL MODE!!!! The extras are the only reason I play anymore since I have beaten the game MULTIPLE times!!!!
  • EA ruined this game with ads Jan 10, 2021

    By Beastygamer2435
    When I was younger, this was by far my favorite game to play. I would constantly try and beat the next level, but I could never defeat the final boss at the end. I was excited when I saw it optimized for the new phones so I could finally beat the game without my fathers help, but now I’m incredibly disappointed. Both before and after every level, I have been forced to watch a 30 second ad that cannot be skipped. It happens whenever you switch menus or do really anything in the game, which makes it infuriating to play. The game also freezes a ton during each round, which causes you to restart the game and watch another ad upon re-entry, even making you lose all progress. On top of that, everything is nearly impossible to do without spending money for the mini games which is disheartening. Those used to be a ton of fun to play, but now I can only play one and then have to grind 2 more hours to do even one more. I loved this game when I was younger, but now it is almost impossible to play which makes me feel awful. Why did EA do anything to this game? It was perfect before, but now it’s only a money grab.

    I have had this game for a very long time and recently when I went back to play it after a few months hiatus all of my progress was gone. I have reached out to EA for helped but have not received any. I love this game but it takes a long time to grind out all of the extra plants, bonus levels, and make a cool zen garden. I had essentially unlocked everything and now it's all gone.
  • Isn’t this illegal or something? Apr 17, 2019

    I have literally purchased this game more times than I remember, in many different forms. I know I originally bought this app on my iPod when I was younger so that’s at least ONE time I’ve paid $0.99. I’ve had it on my DS, my Xbox, etc, not that it matters. And I’ve purchased coins from the shop a few times over the years as well—specifically through iTunes. So what the hell is going on when suddenly it’s a free to download app that refuses to restore all my purchases and forces me to watch adds? I literally own this game and it was taken away from me by an update?? I guess it’s my fault for getting a new phone huh? Honestly this is really scummy. At least let people restore their purchases. This new update only allows the “get rid of ads” purchase to be restored, and I believe any purchase used to do that but I could be mistaken. Even so, for somebody who originally paid for the app and has since made in-app purchases, all on the same iTunes account over many years, it’s disappointing for me to see my favorite mobile game get squeezed for cash like this. 😔 SEGA did this with Sonic as well so you’re not the only ones stealing products back from the consumers I guess
