Play OverviewPlay Overview

Plants Vs. Zombies (2019) Garden Warfare is a series of third-person shooting games about the battle for supremacy between weaponised plants and attacking zombies. It's good for families because the comedic zombies and funny plant powers keep things away from pure violence.

*Plants vs Zombies (2009) available on PC, Mac, iOS, Android and consoles. It was a static screen battle where you placed plants to fend off zombies.
  • Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare (2014) is available on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. This took the game into a 3D world battle. A little like Call of Duty or Battlefield but without the blood and with a lot more humour (and plants).
  • Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 (2016) is available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. This adds split-screen multiplayer, new maps and characters.
  • Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville (2019) is available on PC, PlayStation 4 Xbox One. Taking a cue from games like Overwatch, this adds more refined classes of characters: attackers, defenders, or supporters. It also adds objective-based Turf Takeover mode and the team deathmatch variant Team Vanquish.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville is rated PEGI 7 for violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to fantasy or mythical beings and creatures and non-realistic violence in a child-friendly setting or context. The violence is unrealistic. You must shoot zombies with peas, needles, lasers, rockets etc. Depending on the unit and weapons used, the number of hits needed to kill an enemy differs greatly. When a zombie is killed, it falls over and ‘plops’ away. There is no blood or gore. It’s all cartoony (plants die in the same way as the zombies). The sound effects strengthen this cartoony vibe, as do the graphics and models used in the game. There are loads of oversized objects, a bright colour scheme, loads of goofy sound effects and there’s never a real sense of danger.
 
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.

Skill Level

8+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it’s important for parents and guardians to ensure they understand in-game purchases and have spending limits set-up.
