I'm a guy and I absolutely adore PvZ. I don't know, I guess it just doesn't click for everyone, but I've played it and loved it on PC, PS3, iOS, and Android (only one I haven't finished). Believe it or not it is one of the games I'm most dying to play the Vita when I buy one. I love that game to death (pun not intended) ^_^
Agreed. I've played through the main campaign of the game at least 20 times by now over various platforms (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, iOS, Vita, and Android) and it's fun every time. The Android version is terrible since it's the same as the gimped original iOS release minus the post-launch support and option to turn it into the full version of the game. The iOS version isn't much better because you have to grind hundreds of thousands of coins to unlock all of the mini-games, puzzles, and survival levels, but at least there's a way to get it.
The best stuff is unlocked once the first playthrough of the campaign is complete since all of the mini-games, puzzles, survival, and second campaign stuff are unlocked then.
It's disappointing that Popcap's fucked up the sequel by making it an iOS exclusive with no word of a PC/Console release.
