Battlefield Patio

When starting Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, you  will not find the classic menu to choose game modes, but start directly to control your character on a big stage, called the Patio. This the base of plants and zombies , and have a central area where battles are fought tireless, with allies and enemies handled by the AI. Within the base of either side, you have access points to different game modes , including competitive multiplayer, cooperative horde mode, the selection and customization of the characters, our statistics and unlockables or player missions , which are part of a sort of story mode.

As for the story mode content, many of them are developed at the Patio own, others in multiplayer maps, and have a certain plot context, which as you can already imagine if you know the story, and this is a crazy humorous story . There are two campaigns , one for plants and one for zombies, and there are nearly 20 missions in each, which is not bad. The missions are relatively varied at first, having to perform certain goals such as pick up an object from defeated enemies or a boss, and there are some other situation that is out of the norm.

There are horde type missions that take place in the Garden Operations maps, and the good thing is that these create a team of four characters, which you can switch control of each of them at any time . In addition to these missions a player can play at different levels of difficulty, so it ends up being a novelty that brings more value to the product and makes it more complete. Yet this mode doesn’t support online or local/splitscreen co-op, like some other modes.

Good

  • Variety of new game modes, characters and missions
  • Campaing mode is finally here and there is fair amount of content to enjoy the game Solo
  • Maps are larger and supporting up to 24 players now!
  • Excellent character customization options.

Bad

  • Some single player missions may feel boring and a little too hard to complete.

As far as I can remember, I've been surrounded by technology. My father bought us a Commodore 64 so I started playing games as a baby, following my passion with Amiga 500, then PC and so on. I love game related collectibles, and when I'm not collecting I review games, watch movies and TV Shows or you may catch me keeping a low profile at Game Events.
