Holiday Gift Guide Day 13 - Plants vs. Zombies Review and Giveaway

It's always nice to give gifts that are either really useful or really fun. Today's gift is both. Not only would you be giving an incredibly enjoyable and somewhat addictive computer game, but you'd also be helping your loved one learn how to handle an all out zombie attack!


Plants vs. Zombies by Popcap games, is a strategy game where you use a wide variety of plants to keep zombies from entering your house to eat your brains - don't worry it's not graphic. As you progress through the levels the zombies get tougher and more and more obstacles are thrown in your way.


 Not to worry though, your plant arsenal grows as well.

All in all, the game is simple to understand and play, but at the same time challenging and a whole lot of fun. Also, as you play though the main game, mini-games are unlocked which adds more fun ways to play.

I highly recommend this game as a gift for anyone. But especially for anyone who feels like I do - that a zombie attack is definitely something you should be prepared to handle.

To Buy It - Plants vs Zombies can be downloaded online for 19.95 or purchased at major putlet stores
