Platform: Xbox 360, PC, PS3
Genre: Third Person Shooter
You wouldn't know it from looking at the Plants vs Zombies logo on the box but there's more than one game in PopCap Hits: Volume 2. The release also includes Heavy Weapons, Zuma and Feeding Frenzy.
Heavy Weapons is a typical enough side scrolling shooter full of tanks, bombs, power-ups and Zeppelins, Feeding Frenzy 2 is a passable enough sequel for younger gamers who enjoy co-op while Zuma is an addictive little puzzle game. Each of the games have been given the HD treatment but whether gamers will spend more than fifteen minutes playing casual games available for free online is debatable.
The real star of the package is the ubiquitous Plants vs Zombies and not since Halo Wars has a strategy game translated so so well onto consoles. Mobile gamers probably have it already and it's been available as DLC for a while but those who haven't will find hours of enjoyment in a simple but inspired castle-defence game which is even more colour-full on a large TV.
