Classic Arcade Fun

  • 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!

Near Mindless 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 .

like a firework; thrilling but short

  • 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.

80's Arcades meets the 360!

  • 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!

  • Summary: *Einleitung Heute berichte ich euch über den X Box 360 Action Shooter Earth Defence Force 2017. Produziert und herausgebracht wurde dieses Spiel von der Firma Koch Media die schon des Öfteren negativ auf sich aufmerksam gemacht hat. Und ob für rund 20 Euro dieses Spiel auch wieder eine Enttäuschung ist, werdet ihr nun in meinem Testbericht erfahren. *Game In einer kleinen Vorgeschichte erfährt man dass im Jahre 2013 Außerirdisches Leben im Weltall entdeckt wurde.
