Wait, wait, wait... wait.... Did PopCap just make Plants vs Zombies... CoD clone?!

I was so let down by EA announcing plants vs microtransactions 2, that this game that was announced the day after they fired George Fan just doesn't phase me. Wait, I mean this game that was so under wraps that no one knew about it.. just doesn't phase me.

I'm assuming airstrikes will be replaced with the Cob Cannons?

OT: I gotta admit, this looks like a pretty interesting twist on original gameplay. While it is very "Gears Horde" mode, I can't wait to see how they connect tower defense with TPS aspects.

Fan-TASTIC!

I always loved Grave Buster but it's pretty useless for most of the game, maybe now he can be some kind of Demoman.

Speaking of...

Cactus = Sniper
Pea Shooter = Scout
Threepeater = Heavy
Sunflower = Medic
Imitater = Spy
Torchwood = Pyro

I'll admit that the models on display are pretty true to the designs of the original PvZ.

But why they thought the audience for a single-player tower defense game was a natural fit for a multiplayer first-person-shooter is beyond me, other than that being EA they think everything should be multiplayer and have the possibility of real-money transactions.

I think they are going for the gamers that love the PvZ IP, but play more than just tower defense games. I have friends that love PvZ and they also play a ton of Battlefield 3 and other shooters. I don't play many shooters, other than Halo, but when I do play multiplayer shooters, I like the strange concept type, example, Gotham City Imposters. That is why I actually like the looks of Garden Warfare.

this is wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiierd!
but it looks interesting, ill see maybie ill play it :P
