It's about time. Again. Months after its iOS debut, Plants vs Zombies 2 has finally moved onto Android. And not just in China, either. The game is now available worldwide on Google Play.

Like its iOS cousin, it is free-to-play--but don't let that deter you. The Android version requires Gingerbread (Android 2.3) and a device with a 1GHz processor and 1GB RAM.

Now that the game is out on both platforms, perhaps we'll start seeing expansion packs soon?

        Same here. It really feels like its the same level over and over and over and over. I tried to power through but just couldnt.

          Yeah, and they REALLY artificially limit your coins and keys. It's really disappointing.

        It's really amazing how they could fuck this up.

          They're still probably making a lot of money. That's the saddest part.

      Thought it was pretty darn good. It added some clever new things and I liked the way the levels unlocked. Definitely picking this up. A very worthy successor to the original.

      I also thought it was great, especially for free.

      I hope it loads faster than on my ipod touch. The first launch was 6 minutes and it still takes a couple of minutes to launch every time.

      No offense but refusing to play a great game just because of In-App Purchases is just plain stupidity.
      The game here, contrary to what you might have read from most reviews, doesn't force you to buy something. I heard someone complaining that ads to buy something popped up every 2 minutes - maybe that person somehow downloaded a hacked version from outside sources with malware programmed in it. The genuine game from Google Play Store doesn't have such ads. Heck, the only time I noticed that this game had IAPs is during the tutorial, showing what the Shop Button does.
      If ever the game seems to force you to buy an item, it's either you badly want to complete the game in just one sitting or you've skipped the first game, making the later Levels in this game hard for you because of lack of experience that one gets from playing the first game.

      Also, I read a lot of complaints why the Premium Plants (plants from the first game plus a new one) were included in the IAPs. Just what is it with those old plants other than nostalgia that people wanted to have it in the game?

      With all those points presented, the "I'd rather buy a complete game than to purchase contents little by little!" complaint doesn't apply to this extremely fun sequel. If you have this kind of attitude toward this game, you're like a person who, after being given an option to get a free phone but has to buy the jelly case separately, would complain why it didn't come with the phone in the first place.

      I don't doubt that people would still complain if they removed those Premium Plants and the purchasable optional Upgrades, and say something like the "Bah! The game doesn't have the same amount of content the first one did so I won't play this" - This is totally $%!@*#^!!! Why complain if the game is totally free?

      Lastly, don't rush to complete this game, you'll just end up with frustration. Instead, you should take time and admire the challenges it presents. If the game can indeed be completed in one sitting, you wouldn't like waiting for possibly another 3, 4 or 5 years for the third game.

        It's not great by any means. It could have been great, but having to grind levels over and over pretty much ruins that.

        i stopped playing because of the tedious gameplay that was put in to drive in app purchases, not the in-app purchases themselves. in-app purchases aren't always a bad thing.

        Your first premise is false making this whole post stupid. It's not a great game, it's a shit game. Read the rest of this thread for just a little data.

        It's impossible finish this game in one sitting because they block off huge amounts of content behind things that require a fuckton of grinding or instant in-app purchases.

        Fucking retarded.

          Oh, also...some levels are impossible to complete without spending coins.

      I still love me some PvZ2 and all of the whining about DLC is beyond my understanding.

      But I will bitch about the 3 minute load times you get when there is an update. I'm half way done REDACTED by the time the game loads.
