Earth Defense Force 2017 – Review (PS Vita)
25 February 2013
Conclusion: This score is dragged down by the games deficiencies in the graphics and sound department, but if you can look past that there is a lot of fun to be had. It’s the price that will have you on the fence.
Summary: Have you ever found yourself watching television at 2:30 to 3:00 in the morning on the weekend? If you have, the chances are that you have seen one or two campy science fiction or horror movies that happen to grace the airwaves at that time.
Conclusion: The biggest flaw in EDF (other than graphics and gameplay) is the pricing. Charging more for a six year old game than you did on release is a tough sell for something so clearly rooted in the "budget" category from Day 1.
Conclusion: Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable improves upon the formula which mad the Xbox 360 version the instant classic it is today. While the game still suffers from some of the same issues that were apparent on the Xbox 360, the Vita version receives some extra polish to make the experience more enjoyable...
Size matters in EDF 2017 Portable, but not the way you think
Quarter to Three

Excerpt: Earth Defense Force 2017, portable or otherwise, doesn’t look very good most of the time. It doesn’t even sound very good (“Hey, Joe, stop coding for a sec and read this dialogue into the mic.”). It’s simple and dopey to a fault.
Excerpt: Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable delivers exactly what you'd expect from a game with its title. If you ever wanted to take EDF on the road with you, here's your opportunity. If you've never played one of these games before, it's shallow, mindless, and strangely addictive.
Conclusion: Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable remains one of the most demented, wild-eyed shooters you'll ever play. But as funny, ragged, and carefree as it is, until it's available at a lower price it's hard to recommend to anyone but those who revel in flawed cult classics
