Story & Themes
In Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare players can choose to play as a single plant character while trying to defend your garden against hordes of zombies. Alternately you can play as a plant or zombie character and then engage with other players in a tower-defense third-person shooter. The concept is pretty simple, and no story exists beyond the continuous plants vs. zombies conflict. You earn "packs of cards" that unlock new characters and customization options for your characters. Additional packs can be purchased for real money.
Garden Warfare saves after the completion of every "game" regardless of mode. It's not possible to save while within a game.
The garden defense mode has multiple difficulties you can choose from. That mode is fairly easy on the easiest setting, but can be extremely difficult on the hardest setting. The online competitive modes don't have any difficulty settings.
Violence Very cartoony violence, though some semi-realistic explosions do occur.
Scary Imagery Some very little kids might find the zombie characters scary.
Sex & Nudity One of the zombie characters shows a plumber's crack. You can taunt other players using a variety of motions. One of these involves smacking your rear end.
Consumerism Additional packs of cards can be purchased for real money.
Garden Warfare can be played cooperatively and in multiplayer mode. If you chat with other players, you may run into unpleasant language, but it's easy to mute the chat. Chatting is not necessary to play the game.
