Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare has recieved mixed reviews from critic websites. Some reviews praise it in its lighthearted, team-based, and comical aspects, but others criticize its lack of diversity and content. Many reviews also praised for its strong balance between the varied classes, enough so that none feel over-powered or weak. However, the greatest common problem among reviewers is its lack of diversity from other shooters available at the time of release. 

Trivia

  • The title "Garden Warfare" parodies Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
  • The title of this game was originally going to be the title of Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time.
  • According to the trailer, Sunflower now has offensive capabilities and the mushrooms are no longer nocturnal. Although a few of them are stronger at nightime maps. 
  • Scaredy-shroom was going to be a playable character, but it's cancelled. It was replaced with Cactus (which wasn't even in the game).
  • Even if the All-Star Zombies and the Engineer Zombies are considered as new zombies, they might be Football Zombies and Digger Zombies that picked weapons.
  • Coincidentally, the four main plant classes are on the loading screen of the original Plants vs. Zombies.
  • This is the first game in where the Sunflower is an offensive plant.
  • The Giga Gargantuar is now dressed in black and wears sunglasses. This also applies to its Giga Imp.
    • It's still possible to view the Giga Gargantuar's red eyes from the side however.
  • This is the only game where the zombies do not try to eat your brains.
    • However, on Team Vanquish Mode, when the plants reach 40 vanquishes, Dr. Zomboss will say: "The Plants only need 10! Don't you want brains?"
    • Its probably possible that Dr. Zomboss feeds the zombie brains as a snack for winning against the Plants.
  • There is an Easter Egg in the Garden Center map. If the player selects the Cactus and find a wall with sheets of paper on them, he or she can blast away the debris in front of the wall and then use the Cactus' super aim to see some entertaining notes. One says "Achievement Hunters needed." This is a reference to the YouTube channel also named "achievement hunters." It even has their logo on the sheet. Another sheet says "What does the fox say?", a nod to the song "The Fox."
  • There is another Easter Egg that if you are in Zomboss Estate and you look behind the thin trees, Slenderman can be seen. However, he cannot be killed.
  • There is another Easter Egg in Chomp Town. When you find a bulletin and used snipe, you will see that Zombie Yeti is Wanted.
    • There is also one paper that says someone has been stealing roadcones.
  • In Chomp Town, you can find an spray in one wall that says "All your brainz r belong to us", a reference to the internet meme "All your base are belong to us".
  • Every Imp in this game blows up.
