Content specific issues
The violence is unrealistic. You must shoot zombies with peas, needles, lasers, rockets etc. Depending on the unit and weapons used, the number of hits needed to kill an enemy differs greatly. When a zombie is killed, it falls over and ‘plops’ away. There is no blood or gore. It’s all cartoony (plants die in the same way as the zombies). The sound effects strengthen this cartoony vibe, as do the graphics and models used in the game. There are loads of oversized objects, a bright colour scheme, loads of goofy sound effects and there’s never a real sense of danger.
