This trailer has such a high production quality, it could easily be mistaken for a new CG animated feature. However, unlike most movie trailers, PopCap have been careful not to give away everything about the new release - but enough to seriously whet the appetite of gamers all over the globe. For example, the introduction of a time machine already has us wondering what the lawns of ancient Egypt might look like.

Everything about this trailer excites us, from the familiar sight of the dumb zombies placing a cones on their heads and the feisty vegetables preparing for battle, to the clear nod to cult film Back to the Future at the end. We're just itching to try PvsZ2 out, safe in the knowledge that as soon as we do, we'll be hooked, once again, immediately.
