Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville
Top Critic Average
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 takes the foundation of the Garden Warfare series and expands upon it.
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.

Battle for Neighborville is fun and bursting with humour. It's packed with content that you can play co-operatively in PvE and competitively in multiplayer, but some balancing issues at present can make the competitive side feel a bit of a slog.
There aren’t that many shooters out there that have me consistently chuckling as I play, and that is in large part to the wonderful characterisations PopCap has given each one of its characters.
While it might not be every shooter fan's bag, Battle for Neighborville has certainly got the ability to entertain just about anyone... young or old, experience shooter player or first-timer.
