Plants vs Zombies has been reinventing and updating its games since its inception and has stayed one of the most popular game series across various platforms.

Let’s explore which Plants vs Zombies games we think are the best in our ranked list below.
Plants vs Zombies Games Ranked
Here are our top picks for Plants vs Zombies games available to play on mobile and console right now.
6. Plants vs Zombies
The original PvZ tower defense game for mobile, this one unfortunately hits the bottom of the list. The graphics are cute but in a retro kind of way, and the gameplay is pretty basic. It is great for nostalgia if you played it when it first came out, but for a better version the next PvZ mobile game is a better choice. Plants vs Zombies is available to play on IOS and Android.
5. Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare
Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare still holds up as a good fun third-person co-op multiplayer but unfortunately the servers just aren’t as busy as they used to be. Also it doesn’t really offer as much as the next in the series Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2. Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare is available to play on Xbox 360, Xbox One and Playstation 3/4.
4. Plants vs Zombies Battle for Neighborville
The most recent Plants vs Zombies third-person shooter has all the elements of Garden Warfare with a more updated look, and some more exciting features. Players can choose to be on the Plants or Zombies team and battle it out in one of many co-op multiplayer modes. With over twenty-three customisable gameplay elements, nine of which are new to this mode, the possibilities are great. For many, however, it just doesn’t offer much more than previous favorite PvZ shooters Garden Warfare. Plants vs Zombies Battle for Neighborville is available to play on Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

3. Plants vs Zombies Heroes
Plants vs Zombies Heroes is a card battle version of the game where players can unlock cards and use special skills to battle opponents. Plants and Zombies take it in turns to choose and place cards to attack the other, winning with skills and clever strategies. It’s definitely a fun departure from the regular tower defense game and well worth trying out. Plants vs Zombies Heroes is available to play on IOS and Android.
2. Plants vs Zombies 2
Plants vs Zombies 2 is a perfectly updated version of its tower defense predecessor. The events, challenges and levels are engaging and the gameplay is a perfect way to kill some time. Players get to complete special challenges playing as either Zombies or Plants, gaining new characters as they go. Plants vs Zombies 2 is available to play on IOS and Android.
1. Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2
It might seem odd having this version so much higher than Battle for Neighborville but it is a well-loved classic PvZ multiplayer. Both PvE and PvP modes are endlessly entertaining, and the various game modes are still really popular so the servers always have someone in them to play with. Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 is available to play on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
