Turning a beloved base defense game into a first-person shooter seems like something a major publisher like EA would do, but it actually works in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. The demo looked like a hilarious send-up of the genre–I saw nods to Call of Duty and Borderlands–while preserving some of the concepts of the original game. Zombies still attack in waves, and players can plant stationary flora to assist in the fight. And in 3D, those colorful cartoon zombies really pop.
Release Date: Spring 2014 for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One
