Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon

 

The Japanese B-movie style of previously released games in the series has been replaced with a slightly more serious tone. Don't be fooled though, this is still Earth Defense Force inside and out; and its heart is in the right place.

There's also a bit of a trick when playing with other human players. Out of health packs? Try killing them with friendly fire and then reviving them, it's unlimited and they get full health.

It's extremely buggy.

Killing lots of giant bugs; 3-player co-op campaign; Cool weapons, simple leveling system

Gets repetitive after a while; Could be more graphically polished

Greater than the sum of its parts. Its a commonly used phrase but I can't possibly think of a more apt description for Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon. Due to its mediocre technical presentation and a fair amount of tedious repetition, it falls...

The Ugly: "Wait...wait...no checkpoint? Are you serious?"

EDF can become monotonous – mindless even, if you let it – but with the right frame of mind, there's a remarkable amount of fun to be had here.

Unlike its predecessor, there are four character classes to choose from. Or, to be more precise, there are four suits of armour to wear - you'll always play as the same gruff-voiced squad commander, Lightning Alpha. Trooper armour is the all-rounder,...

Despite lacking the scripted set-pieces of a so-called 'AAA' game, Insect Armageddon does a remarkable job of showing what a focused team can produce on a minimal budget. Vicious Cycle have produced a sequel that is fun, accessible, and most...

There's very little story, no characterization at all, and no real ending, so if you need those things in your game, look elsewhere. If, on the other hand, you're content with the pure, elegant beauty of trying to kill every blasted thing that comes...

There's nothing quite like EDF's insane thrills. Simple, old-school, but oh so very good at what it does, Insect Armageddon is well worth a look. As long as you don't mind a bit of ant vomit, of course.

At least EDF is honest about what it is, and delivers the same thrills and more often at a significantly lower price. To put it sweetly - and with a delicious culinary metaphor! - Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon is all cake and no icing. As long...

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon is a classic example of too much of a good thing. Repetition and grinding prevent it from being a B-game classic, but taken in short bursts its unique brand of giant bug slaying mayhem is unlike anything else out...

Consumer review by:

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon- PS3

 

Insect Armageddon feels trapped between the competing goals of trying to emulate its cult classic forebear and trying to be a modern video game. It splits the difference, and the result is a game that probably won't please fans of modern shooters or...
