Since it was released in Đài Loan Trung Quốc almost two weeks ago, PopCap's lademo Zombie versus vegetation tower defense game, Plants versus Zombies 2: It's About Time has been well received. Despite that, many of PopCap's Chinese fans are upmix, claiming they feel "gouged" by the games in-ứng dụng purchasing.

PopCap's original PvZ was a big hit in Trung Quốc. It wasn't uncomtháng to see people playing PvZ on their iPhones or iPads on a daily commute. The full game cost around $3 in China and currently holds a four và a half star rating on the Chinese version of the Apple phầm mềm store. On the contrary, PvZ2, despite being free, currently holds a two star rating with the majority of reviewers giving the game one star. Have sầu a look below:



So what happened in the three years since the first PvZ? According lớn đánh giá và online comments in China, the difference is in PopCap's monetization Model for the game. According khổng lồ đánh giá và documents I received from PopCap's branch in China, people are saying the Chinese version of the game is too "hard."


Some of the review online accuse PopCap & parent company EA of "gouging" the Chinese game thủ for money, making comparisons that the non-Đài Loan Trung Quốc versions of the game are easier—which is odd, because the game is only in beta outside Trung Quốc. Also, it apparently cannot be played on U.S. accounts.



"Even if you want to lớn make back the money you lost on the first version, you still shouldn't vị this (reference khổng lồ piracy with the first PvZ). I paid for the first game. This is garbage. You think we don't have US accounts!!! What you're doing now will only alienate users & thua kém more money!!!"

Very fun! Very creative sầu.

Despite all the negative sầu responses PopCap has received, the company has put out a truyền thông media report about how the Chinese version isn't all that bad. In the report, PopCap points out that the Chinese version of the game has all content available khổng lồ the player without any cost—they only need lớn put in the necessary time:

As you can see, each plant costs $6, two times of the English version. But do not overlook the fragment bar below. It allows you to lớn gain không lấy phí access to lớn target plant by collecting fragments by defeating the Yeti Zombie, five times a day at most.

It takes up to lớn $48, or NOTHING khổng lồ access all content. It’s completely up to lớn the player.

Now, while PopCap's response seems lớn very stern, PopCap Đài Loan Trung Quốc rep Shiloh Cao told me a lot of the negativity on also comes from internet trolls. Cao says that many of the people who rated the game have yet khổng lồ play it, và she also said that some are just frustrated by the difficulty màn chơi. Using herself as an example, Cao says that she was able to lớn get far inlớn the game without spending a single yuan. Cao highly recommends that players try both the Chinese and English versions of the game. (cảnh báo that the game hasn't yet gotten its full release in the West.)

It's unknown how the negative sầu press will affect PvZ 2, but from what I've sầu seen first hand here in Đài Loan Trung Quốc, the game is looking popular. That's certainly anecdotal at best, but people I know offline say they are up to lớn the challenge. Those gamers online, though, beg lớn differ...

Everyone here in China who played the original pirated it, and everyone knows that especially Popcap. Which is why there is no "full version" any more.

No one here has the morals to stop stealing digital IP.., và devs know this so all projects from here out - LOCALLY produced & foreign made for this market, are online with micro transactions.
