With intuitive gameplay, charismatic characters and many features, it's hard not to be charmed by Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. The problems are practically insignificant when compared to the length and refinement of the title, which has a high replay factor, even more if we consider that it is in its Complete Edition. It is with high spirits and very good humor, this is one of the best shooters available on Switch.

PVZ: Battle for Neighborville's messy maps and repetitive solo campaigns are rescued by an exciting and cute roster and varied multiplayer modes.

Garden Warfare 3 in all but name, but while it's not an emphatic improvement on the previous games it's still a highly enjoyable, family friendly online shooter.

Despite strong competitive and cooperative multiplayer action, the PvE elements fall short of those marquee modes. The progression leads to more frustration than satisfaction

Battle for Neighborville seems targeted towards an audience that arguably doesn’t exist in any meaningful capacity — PvZ players who wanted a more competitive shooter with fewer customization options.

Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville doesn't go out of its way to surpass expectations, but it's a silly, strange, joyful game – one I'm glad was greenlit. If PopCap can continue what it started, this stands a fighting chance of becoming my favorite PvZ spin-off. I hope it gets that opportunity.

Plants vs. Zombies Battle for Neighborville for Nintendo Switch is a really good port, in a technical level, of a fun shooter. It has a good diversity of game modes for single and multiplayer, and a charming art style. We do regret, however, that the game launches on Switch after EA abandoned the game on other platforms.

Even at times Battle for Neighborville seems like a elaborate remaster of Garden Warfare 2, but there is still a lot of fun to be had. However, some of the game's more obvious issues cannot be ignored, including its unbalanced online matchmaking.

Plants Vs. Zombies: Battle For Neighborville Complete Edition is one of the better shooters on Nintendo Switch, with tons of content and modes to play around in. The framerate isn't great, and the lack of two-player split-screen is a shame, though.
