Summary: This was my first game in the EDF series to play and while I do feel that 2025 has this one beat, Insect Armageddon gave me countless hours of enjoyment. In all honesty, when I purchased this game I did not have very high expectations for it but D3 really surprised me and I think I will be an EDF fan for the long haul. If you have not tried an EDF game I would say start with 2025 but if you like it then give this one a go as it is still lots of fun.
Summary: love this franchise. this game is actually pretty hard on the higher setting. still great graphics and still fun but be prepared to die often and restart from beginning of each chapter. if it had a quick save and continue, would had given it 5 stars. over all though i like the game and price.
Summary: While the Single player is fun to play(and can be completed in a day) the real fun of the game is the co-op. With simple controls anyone can jump in and start playing. This is one of the best couch co-op games there has been in a while and it's just about fun. The objectives are repetitive but as long as you enjoy mowing down endless waves of mutated bugs, then this is the game for you.
Summary: I got this for my brother for X-mas played it too and fun so much fun, there objective mode and survival. Also there an online mode to, but didn't try that yet. Machine gun, snipers, shotguns, rocket launchers, grenade launchers and turrets. Fun with 2 player side by side split screen. Revive other player. Fighting against giant ants, ticks, spiders and robots.
Summary: It's fun when hundreds of insects come straight at you. The weapons are good for an EDF game. It's also fun destroying buildings and seeing them crumble. But what they should have worked on was on making the fully destructible environments more realistic like those of Battlefield series and the Red Faction series. Because seriously, one shot from a rocket launcher to a building and it crumbles down entirely. There's just not much realism in that.
Summary: The first EDF was a bit of a sleeper hit. A throwaway budget title that turned out to actually be pretty fun. In the vein of games like "Serious Sam", swarms of ridiculous enemies flood the screen and the goal is to find the right weapon to counter each type of wave. Its was refreshing to see something so casually absurd in the era of "gritty" military shooters.
