The zombies are getting smarter and challenge your reaction speed in a number of ways, though you also have a whole new complement of plants to use. Stages have special terrain features to keep every round fresh. Plant food can be collected to super-charge any plant when things get especially hairy, plus gesture-based powers can help you clear the bigger waves.
