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.

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon Review

 

A couple of years ago, D3 Publisher brought the quirky shooter Earth Defense Force 2017 to the US, pleasing Xbox 360 owners with the kind of destructive chaos that you'd find in any given Godzilla movie. And considering you faced off against giant...

Luckily, you’ve got the tools to handle the survival. There are over 300 weapons included in Insect Armageddon, along with various soldier types, including Tactical and Armored, among others. Each bring something unique to the table, and the weapons...

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon Review for the XBOX360

 

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

The Fourth of July is a holiday rich in tradition for Americans, with such staples as gathering with friends, shooting off fireworks, and drinking beer. Apparently, killing aliens may soon be associated with the holiday too. Will Smith saved the world...

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon is simultaneously better and worse than its predecessor. While the core shooting gameplay against hordes of bugs and robots has never been better, Insect Armageddon lacks the humour and charm that made the...

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...

Old hands will still find much of the personality and singular vision of the franchise intact, but it's the newcomers, ironically, who might find Insect Armageddon a jarring mix of old-fashioned thrills and modern gameplay trends.

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon- Xbox 360

 

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...

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- Xbox 360

 

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...
