While we have reviewed both the iOS and Android versions of Plants vs Zombies 2, that was the version prior to this update. Why are we doing a news item on an update? Because this update changes quite a bit of the game, almost creating a brand new game while removing a lot of the annoying In App Purchase mess.
Social additions allow players to invite friends and send them gifts. The map screen is much easier to understand, locked sections are now integrated into the linear map rather than being off shooting paths. New enemies include Gargantuars- really HUGE zombies that will take more than a little plant power to bring down. To the delight of fans, a lot of IAP has been removed- particularly that associated with buying keys to unlock the off shooting paths. Now things are better integrated and overall success is easier to understand. Stars also gone, for better or for worse, I personally liked them- they gave reason to go back and replay levels and they tested your ablities.
