The new Plants vs Zombies Heroes is the latest plants and zombies game by Electronic Arts. It won our heart in their previous games is back again in an entirely new avatar (well, they have got capes and fancy names now). The premise of the game is that an evil scientist with indecipherable ambitions creates a machine to make zombies heroes. Of course, this means that their bald skulls are suddenly topped with slick hairdos which will make Clark Kent green with envy. They also get nicknames with one handsome zombie being called ‘Super Brainz’. This giant hero-making robot malfunctions and causes even some plants to turn into heroes, complete with supposedly cool names and masks. You will recognize some of the usual plants from the previous games and also notice how much they have changed for this one.
Whereas the previous games were a slightly modified tower defense game, the new Plant vs Zombies Heroes is more of a turn-based card game (like Hearthstone) with the plants and zombies alternately utilizing energy to attack the other side. There are a number of different types of lanes in each lawn as you move on. For example, there is a water lawn with certain specific plants that can be used there and an autumn lane for certain other plants. Even those unfamiliar with the game’s mechanic will pick up very quickly. The game looks just as great as the previous ones in the series. However, while this game is a fine edition to the Plants vs. Zombies collection, it does not really surprise with innovations.
The game is pretty standard and the art changes only cursory. To make things interesting, Plants vs Zombies Heroes also has a multiplayer mode. For fans of the franchise, this game might just rekindle the love for the entire collection of games. And fret not, even if you haven’t played any of the predecessors, this is as good a place to start as any.
