Because it's a sequel, Plants vs Zombies 2: It's About Time needs to add new plants. While your winning strategy of cattail and pumpkins may still be effective in PopCap's new game, you'll still want to experiment with some of the new garden defenders.
Perhaps our favorite of the new plants is the chili bean, which causes zombies that eat it to die and fart, damaging any undead behind it. There's also the bonk choy, a short-ranged melee plant that pairs nicely with a wall-nut and oyster sauce.
These plants should be familiar to our friends down under who have been playing the free-to-play game for quite some time. The rest of us, however, have to wait as PopCap figures out exactly how much money to charge us for its various microtransactions.
