Polygon – 8.5/10
"PLANTS VS. ZOMBIES IS AN ELEVATING FACTOR IN A TIRED GENRE"
"Different" doesn't always mean good. Unexpected combinations of action and subject matter don't always work out. But here, they're elevating factors in often tired genres.Garden Warfare could have been an underwhelming exercise in missing the point, of mismatched agendas. Instead, it takes the best parts of PVZ to make an experimental shooter that feels freed from tired conventions or compromise."
Digital Spy – 3/5
"The unpredictable unlocking system - combined with dealing with a very specific set of challenges and a small array of maps and modes - means that Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare runs out of steam far too quickly."
GodisaGeek – 8/10
"Garden Warfare is different enough to compliment those long sessions of other online shooters, and acts as a great palette cleanser in a genre dominated by greys and browns that often takes itself far too seriously. The inclusion of local multiplayer is also a huge plus and, depending on how often you play with family and friends, can add much to the value."
"Against all odds, somehow the team at PopCap have managed to craft a fun shooter that remains true to the series. More commendably, they’ve created a shooter that takes you by surprise and makes you laugh."
Destructoid – 8/10
"Great: Impressive efforts with a few noticeable problems holding it back. Won't astound everyone, but is worth your time and cash."
CVG – 7/10
"Like homemade fertiliser, it does the job, but the proper stuff gets it done better. Also it occasionally smells. Like poop."
