I'm a big PvZ fan and Zen did it right, this table oozes Plants vs Zombies (if you liked PvZ you'll like this table). I wish they'd do a Castle Crasher table next, they could really tie into the XBLA hits (granted PvZ released on PC initially). The table has many lanes that you'll constantly hit with a few ways to grab challenges and other game modes via hitting two "pits" on the table. We also see an iconic crazy individual shows up and helps out with his blue pinto, after which activating results in different plant bonuses.
There's also a currency system in play which ties to PvZ. Threw out play you'll collect sun from the sunflower that sprinkles it across the table, you can activate a frenzy to receive more, to purchase the different plants at your disposal. Each plant has a special ability related to how they act in the PvZ world. There can be some chaotic zombie sequences so they are very useful. I kept saying out loud as I was playing, this is crazy (when fog was on the board and zombies were all gunnin' for me)! I loved it.
The advantage of video pinball, compared to real life pinball, is that you aren't limited to you know reality (I do enjoy virtual simulated physical tables too). The ability for the zombies to materialize and crumble when hit was I thought pretty neat. The effects of fog on the table was really awesome and felt like again, PvZ. The art style to the table feels like it was done by PopCap.
I actually mustered quite a high score of 400K+ and haven't read the rules of the table yet. It is a fun high scoring table like Spiderman imo, multi-ball is easily obtainable and jackpots can be achieved back to back. The only thing I might dock this table is the plant dialogue sfx can get annoying in the long run but that's my opinion about most of the new tables. At first Ccoo coo Combo was funny but it became an old joke fairly quickly. I can see myself playing this a lot more.
