So... the latest updates have made almost every world have 'bonus levels' that are complete bull and unnesscarily difficult. You can't even place a few sunflowers before the first suprise attack shows up. There's also no reason to play them since all you get are pinatas, which can easily be obtained by doing literally anything else. This also ties in with Big Wave Beach, that when it was released it was heavily critized by the community because of tough zombies - and the later levels of Modern Day are almost unplayable due to early balloon zombies and all stars.
yea, seed packets aren't my favorite thing in the world but at least you can earn them at every corner. Premium plants shouldn't even deserve seed packets, cuz that's just extra money for extra seed packets to level up your money-hogging plants.
You can't really compare PvZ2 to PvZ1 as both sides got more powerful.
Most PvZ1 plants got buffed, and sun is worth 50.
The zombies come in bigger groups and faster to counter that.
I'd rather say unbalanced, not hard.
Honestly only Big Wave Beach is really a pain, if you don't include expansions, at least in my opinion. The other worlds can be "easy" or "hard", but that's the only one that really sinks into "really hard", especially day 15...
I did manage to find Big Wave Beach a pain but at the same time the theme and the cool plants kept me there playing over and over. Nothing else was really that hard. Modern day balloons can easily be defeated with Blover, bring one of those. So at the end of the day it isn’t too hard, the packets are pretty annoying but they do give a goal to achieve
