We got into a very interesting discussion here at Family Friendly Gaming concerning Plantera. This is essentially the same game on the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U that we had previously reviewed. We have a company policy that we need to be provided payment to update an existing review with new information. That way certain companies are not expecting a re-review every single week as they release new content for their games. We would never review anything new without that company policy.

The Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of Plantera had a cross-purchase functionality. So if you bought the Wii U version you could also get it on the Nintendo 3DS for free. Plantera on the PS Vita does not have that. At least not yet. If Plantera on the PS Vita is updated with that, then we get into the definite situation of the first paragraph. I felt like sounding off on this downloadable only video game.

I am a bit surprised Plantera was released on the PS Vita. It is such a dead system. At least Plantera could have been given a physical copy release. Right? I guess my expectations are too high. I need to lower those. The problem is my expectations are so low we are going to need to start digging underground to get them any lower. I am not a fan of companies releasing a game on multiple systems across multiple months. It costs us in the gaming media more money. Not that many people in PR and Marketing care about the costs to us.

Plantera has good colors, nice music, and lots of tapping fun. I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming was given a digital download code for Plantera on the PS Vita. I tried to use this game on the Playstation TV so we could do a video series of it. Plantera failed to work on the Playstation TV. Which was a real bummer for me personally. I was going to do some overtime video work.

I found myself a bit bored playing Plantera. I would plant stuff, tap creatures, and watch it unfold. I spent more time watching than actually doing in Plantera. Why? Because I was waiting for the next level to be able to unlock something else. Plantera can be an addicting game. I can see why others are so into it. Plantera surprisingly did not make much of an impact with me.
