Pick-Up Post: Plants vs. Zombies for XBOX 360


Did you know that Plants vs. Zombies existed as a boxed retail game for the XBOX 360? I had no idea. I knew it existed as an XBOX Live Arcade downloadable game, but not packaged like this, alongside of Peggle and Zuma. I stumbled upon this over the weekend while video game shopping with my girlfriend and couldn’t let it go.

Why couldn’t I let go of a package of games I already own (at least in the case of Plants vs. Zombies and Peggle)? Part of it was the niche factor. I’ve never seen this game packaged like this before and haven’t seen it since. I like the thought of having this in an uncommon form.

Part of it involved the new features to Plants vs. Zombies. They’ve added 2-player Versus and Co-op modes, which could be fun. I’ve had a lot of fun playing Plants vs. Zombies on my iPad with others huddled around the screen, using their fingers to help me out in a level, and I’d imagine that this could provide a similar experience to that, only on my television.

The main reason why I picked this up though was because I love Plants vs. Zombies and Peggle. I have already beaten both of these games on the iPod Touch and iPad, but they’re always fun to go back to every now and then on any form you get them in. I won’t be in a rush to play them on my XBOX 360, but I know I will in the near future and I’ll likely have a blast with them all over again.
