Here is a nice little preview of what to expect from the co-op (local and online) and boss (using any mobile device using smartlgass as a third player) modes:

The smartglass integration sounds pretty fun actually. In fact, it reminds me of the gaming options that we have seen using the WiiU tablet controller. If it works as described, I can see that being great. It would also demonstrate what is possible using smartglass, which is certainly needed.

I was on the fence about this game but the local co-op and $50 price point pushed me over the edge and I ended up pre-ordering yesterday. Bring on the 27th!

I hope this game isn't bogged down with a bunch of microtransactions.

It's going to have microtransaction but they are taking the same approach as they did for Mass Effect 3, which IMO handled those microtransactions\rewards better than most games have.

Oh ok that's fine. I remember I won the lottery a couple of years ago and spent all the money on Premium Spectre Packs.

Metacritic: 77

 

From Polygon (they gave it an 8.5):

 

 

Plants vs. Zombies is an elevating factor in a tired genre

 

"Different" doesn't always mean good. Unexpected combinations of action and subject matter don't always work out. But here, they're elevating factors in often tired genres. Garden Warfare could have been an underwhelming exercise in missing the point, of mismatched agendas. Instead, it takes the best parts of PVZ to make an experimental shooter that feels freed from tired conventions or compromise.

 

 

 

Major's hands on:

 

Anyone getting this?  I haven't played any PvZ but heard it's a lot of fun and I'd like to get something for Xbox One that has more casual co-op so my fiancée and I can play together.  Seems like this might be a good get for that purpose.

It's worth noting that the local co-op is only for the survival mode.

 

I'm picking this game up on release tomorrow and really looking forward to it!

I think it's available right now isn't it? I have the option to buy for $39.99.

Just doing it now so we have an official topic in place for PC users when it's released.

Looks like a lot of fun but for some reason $40 just seems a bit steep to me

Crap... PvZ does look like a lot of fun... This wasn't even on my radar, but it looks like it's trying to get up there though :-)

This one will have to wait. With TitanFall and inFamous:SS around the corner, there is no way I'm doing 3new games in such a short span of time.

I'll be getting it soon.

If someone here gets it, I'd love to hear how well the smartglass functions work. The demos they had of the third player using a smartglass device reminded me of stuff we have seen on the WiiU.

Really wish there was some kind of demo to check out.

At $40 and considering everything else I currently still have to play and what is coming out this month, I have to pass.
