Vampires Vs Zombies
Didn't meet my expectations
I read several reviews which compared this to the Farm Frenzy games, which I love, so I of course had to give it a shot. While I do agree there are a few similarities between this game and the FF games, the game play itself was completely different in my opinion. A number of levels were more tedious than they were fun or even entertaining as there was a lot of just sitting and waiting for something to happen. Overall it was OK, but if given the chance to buy again, I probably would pass on this one. My first time around I played all the way through, earned gold on all but one level, and did so in 3-4 days. My second time through I earned gold on every level and did so in a little over 2-days. In the end, I've only had it a week and its already a game I will never likely play again.

Where are goals?
I actually really liked this game! BUT! Even in the very first level (which I was trying to get through quickly, since this was a 1 hour free trial!) There was no way to check goals! I had NO IDEA what I was trying to accomplish! So Sad! Because the game premise was good this time! Personally, I am not fan of (? vs Zombie games) and have not found ANY that I liked yet! Bummer!

Yes too slow but hope
I was intrigued by the range of reviews on this game so decided to make up my own mind. It's just too slow - the vampires' speed makes me comatose and then I miss the zombie attacks, etc. Great concept and story is promising but clearly needs work. I'm a TMG fan and have a computer more than capable of handling the speeds and graphics.I don't believe it's really TMG quality.

Amazing heroes, excellent graphics, perfect soundtrack, everything is good except for speed of gameplay. It's interesting but so slowly. Playing is intolerable.

It was ok, not as fun or interesting as similar games.

Farm Frenzy but with Vamps and Zombies
Based on the Farm Frenzy mode. Enjoyed the time management challenge. Kept my interest but near the end the goals were very similiar. Would buy again.

Very like Farm Frenzy games with some additional quirks and features. It was too click-happy for me, but many will enjoy.

farm frenzy in the afterlife
Once I realized that the gameplay was pretty much the same than any other farm frenzy game, I lost interest. Once I saw that I needed to replay a level in order to get the required upgrades for the next level.. I quit. I did not like that with the farm frenzy games either. What a pitty because I rather like the vampire vs zombies theme and it is fun to look at. Did not like the slow movement, even with upgrades it was not much faster. I would recommend it for people that love farm frenzy, for me not so much and I love time managment games.

I really enjoyed this game, it was very challenging. It did get a bit monotonous after awhile though.

Hard, slow, and frustrating
I really love the Farm Frenzy series, so I bought Vampires vs. Zombies after playing the demo. The artwork is lovely and the characters so funny, nice sound, nice cartoon style.
But what happened to the gameplay?
1) The gameplay is ultra-slow. The vampires are moving so slowly, as does the car that takes the goods to the market, as does the supplier that delivers goods you need to produce the final products.
When I played the demo I thought things would accelerate a bit when I buy the upgrades later on, but I was wrong. Even with the highest upgrade the car and market are hardly faster than without any upgrade.
So basically, you spend most of the time waiting for the car and/or the supplier.
2) this is the hardest time management game I ever played in my whole life (and boy, did I play many time management games!). I managed to get gold on only a handful of levels, the rest is silver or - more often - nothing.
That's neither funny nor challenging, it's frustrating, nothing else!
3) when I finished the game (with miserable results), I wanted to replay certain levels, but what was that? You can't re-do levels after you've finished the game!
The only way to replay levels is before the last level. After you finished it, the game starts over on level 1.
Despite the funny, cute look and vampire/zombie characters, I can't recommend this game.
