Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon

 

There's something about killing hordes of insects and saving the world that's a lot of fun. With the latest installment within the Earth Defense Force series; Insect Armageddon, you have a very appealing and enjoyable game despite its shortcomings....

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon

 

The world is being invaded by insects and aliens from beyond the moon, so of course the logical battleground for this conflict would be New Detroit... Earth Defense Force Insect Armageddon is a sequel to EDF 2017, a moderately okay if somewhat...

Fun ; Some impressive visual elements ; Good Multiplayer

Feels short ; Little to no depth

There is a lot of options for how to play from the single player campaign to on line and even couch co-op. In addition to that there is a survival mode that is pretty good to see included as well. As we all know the biggest question, is the game fun?...

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon Playtest – A B-Movie With More Explosions

 

Explosions are always about ten times bigger than they need to be, which is complemented by the fact that every building can be destroyed with enough gunfire.

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon is based around the arcade-style joy of killing. It’s simple, explosive, over-the-top, and a little repetitive, but alongside a friend or with your favorite music playing, it can be a lot of fun.

Mindless fun ; Co-op mode ; Good replay value

Feels like a budget title ; Terrible slowdown

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon

 

Following on a cult hit is a dicey proposition. On the one hand, there's an expectation that the following product need to be superior to the original. But if you make too many changes, you risk damage to the success of your game among that rabid fan...

If you like the idea shooting a rocket into the head of a twelve-foot tall ant and watch it fly spinning into the horizon, buy this game. If you like squad-based shooters that use more than sepia tones and are willing to accept a little silliness, buy...

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon Review

 

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon has lots of explosions and destruction, but not quite enough variety to keep things moving.

Frantic cooperative action ; Tons of powerful weapons to unlock ; Four unique solider classes to level up ; Destroying buildings is a lot of fun

Gets dull quickly in single-player ; Not much visual or gameplay variety

Finding the right soldier for you takes a bit of experimentation. You may think the joys of flight sound like an unparalleled experience, only to find that the buildings you're desperately trying to snipe from are being destroyed by your trigger-happy...

Action, explosions and lotsa bugs.

Simple and satisfying, but lacking in variety and depth. Still thoroughly enjoyable at times. A great range of weapons and four unique classes give the game some value, and the co-op experience is a real blast. By Gaetano Prestia

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon Review

 

It looks better than the last, but this Earth Defense Force game doesn't stray too far from what the fans love.

Insect Armageddon is terribly cheesy in all the right ways. The performance issues it has, especially during split screen, can become annoying at times, but the mindless shooting is simply too fun to keep me from caring all that much. I’ve completed it...
