I always thought that this game was only available at the X-Box marketplace for download so I kinda lost hope that I would ever be able to play it (no XB live---dont get along well with strangers). It showed up on gamefly and I got psyched. After putting it #1 on my Q, like 3 days later it came. At around 10:30am on that perticular sunday morning I began playing it after some oatmeal. Got sucked in immediately and before I realized, the sun was going down and it was around 6:30pm...got hooked...that thing was frigg'n fun all the way through. The layout of the game is really basic but has no shortage of challenges. Like if you were playing on a checker board but the checkers are zombies and you have to defend your side of the board (your house). I was moving through the levels pritty quickly and it still took hours to beat in one sitting yet gameplay didnt get too stale or frustrating. A crapload of zombies all with unique variations to battle, unlockable plants all with spacific attribtes, every ten or so rounds the level would change to give good variation (standard backyard, yard at night, yard w/ pool, rooftop), comedic undertones, good noises and overall audio, and also has tons of challenges that can be played even after you finish the storymode. Ideal stratagy game.
