If you told me that PopCap was looking to branch out its Plants vs. Zombies franchise into other genres, I'd simply shrug at its inevitability. If you told me that their first attempt at expansion was the class-based shooter Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, I'd raise my eyebrows quizzically. If you told me that Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare was a genuinely good game, said eyebrows would lift right off of my head and soar into low orbit.
Yes, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is a class-based, multiplayer shooter--an obvious attempt, given the popularity of Call of Duty and EA's own Battlefield franchise--and it's a surprisingly competent one that manages to work really well in spite of the legacy of its franchise. Taking the previously strategic game and reworking it as a pseudo-Team Fortress 2 is a ballsy move, and in spite of a few missteps it's a worthy addition to the franchise. »

Not only did developer PopCap Games plan to turn the series into a multiplayer only shooter, but they also took what was originally a top-down 2D game and instead switched it into the third person perspective.
It was a bold move, no doubt, and one that could have potentially backfired tremendously. Fortunately, however, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare turned out to be fairly enjoyable, with enough laughs, easy-to-grasp gameplay and creative design that it makes it easy to overlook the game’s shortcomings.

Loadout is an over-the-top arena shooter that delivers an impressive arsenal of firepower for you to lay waste upon your enemies with. It’s a simple concept, but it’s one that Edge of Reality has managed to construct as a solid beginning for their venture into the realm of free-to-play. The only question that remains is whether or not Loadout’s gory and comedic violence is enough to keep you coming back for more.
Before you start any free-to-play game, it’s important to distinguish the difference between what real world and in-game currency gets you. For many, this makes or breaks their decision to jump in with everything they’ve got. It’s hard to justify investing time into a game to earn the best equipment when you wind up facing off against someone that simply dropped a bill payment on a decked out weapon.
Loadout isn’t that game. »

Tomorrow, a new Free-To-Play Fps takes the field to take on the king of the hill, Team Fortress 2. There are a lot of the same sensibilities and even certain aspects of the art style that can be seen in both Loadout and Team Fortress 2 but Loadout looks to deliver a much more over […]
