Our XB1 videos of Garden Warfare 2

We put an end to our series of Xbx One videos with Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. Released recently despite what the rather discreet media coverage seems to indicate, the game definitely deserves your attention, especially its crazy introduction accompanied by the sound of Highway To The Danger Zone. One last time today, we must thank the guys at the Xbox network, without whom we could not offer you as much content!

Yeah... that doesn't look like a paint job at all.

I mean, It's not like they should have made a completely new engine, but even MW2 looked superior to MW.

Yeah.. you lost me. The amount of content in this game is astounding compared to the original, and it's filled with new assets and new gameplay. This is a pretty hefty sequel.

but even MW2 looked superior to MW.
And yet.. it was a worse game.

Shit, really? My judgement was based on videos only, and having played the original on all three systems, I consider this game to be a side step, not a step up.

As for MW games, that's debatable. I for once see MW2 as a superior MP game, but an inferior SP game.

I'm giving it a miss myself, but it's not because it's re-hashed or insignificant or anything. It seems like it's full of content. There are loads of new modes (and new SP/co-op features), new classes, etc. It's just a crowded space. I have a pretty loaded plate when it comes to multiplayer games already. Overwatch and Street Fighter are already fighting for my time... and EA will get my attention again if Battlefield 5 isn't a hot mess.

I think it's a pretty fun casual shooter though. And I wish EA would make more cartoony games on Frostbite... they're beautiful!

I think they're both bad SP games and but COD4 is the last and greatest multiplayer Call of Duty :D

But... I don't really love COD4 w/o promod either.

It's the same engine, it's a sequel. What do you expect it to turn into a rts?

I actually had ZERO interest in this game until I watched some developers play on Twitch today. I might actually buy this game now, it looks really great. And it looks like anything but a quick coat of paint.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the arcade shadow dancer is also nice, built on the same gameplay foundations as arcade shinobi, but a bit weaker level design. i also love rolling thunder 1&2, which are also very similar (4 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i played a bit of shinobi and kunoichi on ps2, but they are really just shinobi in name. (4 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth game gear shinobi is more like the arcade version than the mega drive ones. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'd love some kind of real Sega revival. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I like a bunch of Shinobi games. Even the Game Gear had great Shinobi games. Also the PS2 Shinobi was too quickly forgotten. (4 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth my fav Sega game is Shinobi (original arcade). I still play it now and then. I think they have other, more recognizable and iconic characters/brands, but for me those games don't hold up as well today (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Wasn't really bashing it anyway. I love a lot of Sega stuff, and I think Shenmue is okay. Maybe a bit overrated is all. (4 Hours ago)
