Have a look at this cute trailer first:
Plants vs. Zombies Heroes brings back the same delightful experience as its first two installments with an all new twist. This time, players can choose their side, their superheroes and go head to head against both the game as well as other players on a global scale. Heroes implements another odd little story mode in the game which sets up for a lot of laughs throughout, and the gameplay still has the same charm while offering all new bells and whistles for players to deal with.
In short, players are sure to find both a lot of what they liked about the first two Plants vs. Zombies games as well as a slew of new powers, plants, zombies and skills to enjoy the game. With the theme being superheroes now, the grand scale war between plants and zombies definitely reaches new heights in both action as well as adventure – still, the game remains a casual enough experience for players of any skill level to enjoy, which is quite nice.
The biggest problem with Heroes is the multiplayer. While it is an excellent idea, the connection issues that became more and more obvious upon playing really hampered it. Several times, when close to winning, it popped a connection failure error. It goes without saying that the multiplayer needs a lot of work. There are also occasional bugs with the gem systems and gems being lost or taken away incorrectly, but it seems like the developers are at least working on rectifying these mistakes.
Art and Sound Design
The art of Plants vs. Zombies Heroes falls right back into the classic Plants vs. Zombies cartoonish style, save for being superhero themed this time around. It is still colorful while remaining dark and has a charm all its own all throughout the game. The sound design is still springy and helps add to the atmosphere, with new soundtracks helping to bring Heroes to life even more than part installments.
For fans of Plants vs. Zombies, Heroes is a great installment. The story, the gameplay, the art and sound design have all improved from the last two games and makes for a lot of fun. The biggest issue, again, is with the multiplayer connectivity, but it seems like the developers are working on a fix. Hopefully, when that fix is implemented, it will make Heroes just as great as it should be. Definitely give it a go for yourself if you were a fan of the last two or are just looking for a new game to sink a lot of time into.
