Couch co-op is fun

Shane H., Amazon
15 May 2013
  • Summary: I've played this some with my son. Too few games bother to allow couch co-op. Even a mediocre game can have some fun moments if you are sharing it with your kids! Blast bugs. Run around. Cooperate. Good times...

Good mindless shooting fun with some B-movie dialogue thrown in.

Armando N. Roman, Amazon

  • Summary: When I asked a friend about Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon, all he said was "it's Starship Troopers". That was all I needed to know, and so I bought the game without hesitation. Just a few minutes into the first mission, I saw that he was right- this IS a Starship Troopers game if there ever was one.

Had higher hopes, But it isn't terrible

Shane Windham "Shane Windham, author", Amazon
3 March 2012
  • Summary: I watched a few short youtube video reviews of this game before deciding to go ahead and give it a shot. For the sake of clarity, know that I'm normally a fan of split-screen co-op games, as well as sandbox shooters. But I expect a certain level of precision in a sandbox shooter. The weapons don't need to be deadly accurate, but if I'm sighted on an enemy and shooting, the shot should go in the enemy's general direction more than half of the time.

A decent addition to the series

LionHeart, Amazon

  • Summary: While not as memorable as Earth Defense Force 2017, Earth Defense Force Insect Armageddon successfully retains the series' unbelievably high replay value, addicting gameplay, and fun factor. It's not fair to compare both games, but it's difficult for me not to do so since I have logged over 1,000 hours into Earth Defense Force 2017. In short, Insect Armageddon feels dumbed down and restricted while 2017 felt vicious and open.

Remember the Alamo!

Gary Pryor, Game Informer
5 July 2011
  • Summary: Disclaimer: I use the 10 point rating system differently than GI. I rate average games as 5 as apposed to 7 to allow for a greater differentiating between above average titles. That being said if one of my scores seems a little low, it’s not just me being overly negative. The fourth entry in the EDF series breaks from tradition with an excellent spin-off title. After the success of 2017 it’s no surprise that IA has set it’s sights squarely on the western dollar.

Have you got what it takes?

  • Summary: I would firstly like to say I would probably give this game 3 and a half stars but Amazon doesn't do half measures. With more than a hundred weapons and thousands and thousands of enemies this game will keep you occupied for some time. There is a campaign and a survival mode that can both be played co-operatively online. My biggest critisism would be, with only 15 levels (as big as they are) it's just not long enough.

We're under attack... pass the ant spray

Mother, amazon.co.uk
17 September 2011
  • Summary: Someone get the Oxford English Dictionary boys on the phone, because the definition of 'criticproof' has just been rewritten... by giant ants. Yup, turns out it's pretty hard to say mean things with any conviction about a game that lets you blow up colonies of lorry-sized creepy crawlies, UFOs and unhinged robots with jetpack-sporting soldiers.

Not quite as good as Id hoped

Rimmer72, amazon.co.uk
22 July 2011
  • Summary: Im a massive fan of Global Defence Force on the PS2 and it was a very overlooked gem. Costing a mere £5 or so in supermarket bargain bins it revived the old school relentless shooter. It had some problems but it was just so much fun. I had a quick go on Earth Defence Force 2017 and it didnt really feel the same despite the higher production values (and associated higher price tag). So here we are with Insect Armageddon.

Die Insekten greifen an

Yopi
25 August 2011
  • Summary: Earth Defense Force kann man ruhig als "Trash-Spiel" bezeichnen. 2007 habt ihr euch ohne große Hintergrundgeschichte durch außerirdische Insekten und Roboter geballter, was trotz der nicht vorhandenen Story Spaß machte und euch einige Stunden lang unterhalten hat. Nun kommt der zweite Teil raus, und die Entwickler hoffen, das dieser Teil auch so gut, wenn nicht sogar besser ankommt als der Vorgänger. Ob ihm das gelingt lest ihr hier.
