A playable B-grade movie that is a blast

Summary: The Good: Does a good job being a bad game, completely destructible environments, tons of massive enemies, two player mode is a blast The Bad: Down right laughable voice acting and story, gets extremely repetitive after the first 5 levels, no online play, lame achievements EDF is a bad game. Yet it's a very well done bad game.
Summary: Earth Defense Force--EDF--is an arcade shoot 'em up that delivers loads of fun but lacks any other appealing factors. Aliens attacking earth; giant insects; special forces running around the city on foot (I know, where's the cavalry?)--all good fun. You play one of the defenders running around the city with your comrades, blowing up alien attackers, and trying to stop the earth from being destroyed. Gameplay: The game is fun!
Summary: This is a Shoot-em-up Game. I got it because it came very recommended. You and or a friend shoot giant BUGS and ROBOTS. There are A LOT of weapons to find and 5 levels of difficulty to find the on. This game really is in need of a refined part 2 for many reasons which is why I rated it so low but is still lots of challenging fun. There is no XBL but could really benefit from at least online co-op. You just get in, choose weapons go shoot!
Excerpt: "...a response and form the Earth Defence Force (EDF here after) just in case. 2017 the aliens, now know as the ravagers, arrive and the EDF is deployed. As for the game it’s self there isn’t really a story outside the whole repels the invaders arc. There are brief story points at the beginning of the mission, but these very rarely stray from the whole “we’re getting pushed back, hold on/push back at all costs” deal. Another disappointment is that your ...
Pros: Great playability, lots of unlockables, five levels of difficulty, budget title .
Cons: Low production values, inferno mode will take time and effort to beat .
Summary: Most console games these days seem to have their mind set on providing confusing intertwined plots, multiple strategic routes to the goal and gameplay that gets as complicated as it can get. Then along comes Earth Defence Force 2017 with a plot so wafer thin that it makes George Bush look like a genius. Gameplay is pretty straight forward; shoot, kill destroy.
Earth Defense Force 2017 (Xbox 360): Protect The Earth (Or Die Tryin')

Summary: INTRODUCTION Ten years from now, Earth is under attack from aliens. Your mission, as part of the Earth Defense Force (EDF), is to eliminate the invading threat before the world is completely annihilated by armies of giant ants, arachnids, robots and flying saucers. So, take to the streets of Japan, in over fifty unique missions, with reams of powerful artillery, to reclaim the planet for the human race.
Summary: what can i say? addictive and frustrating in equal measure. this game is a real treat for the PS2 owners out there, bringing a bit of arcade madness to a console otherwise owned by 18 rated shooters. like playing a Godzilla film or a 3D rendering of Metal Slug, games like this make the console more accessible to the young or overseas markets.
Summary: I have to admit I wasn't expecting great things from this game from the start , and I have been surprised. It took be right back to the 1980's when I spent money in arcade machines 'killing' very similar looking aliens. The plot is to be expected, as are the weapons ... right from the start - It's a classic retro sci-fi shoot-em all!
