Summary: Earth Defense Force 2017 is among my all time favorite games. It is elegantly simple. Almost nothing gets in the way of gameplay, no stupid NPCS, no artsy fartsy cinematics, no pointless puzzles, no objectives. All you did was pick two weapons and kill enemies.
Summary: I purchased this because I loved the prior Earth Defense Force. In this installment the graphics are better and there are character classes and colors to choose from. The best addition is online co-op. However it lacks the scale of it's predecessor. The battles seem more immediate.
Summary: The graphics are horrible, the animations are crap, the missions are repetitive but the game is AWESOME. When it comes down to it games are supposed to be fun and that is exactly what this game is. Something about fighting tons of enemies at the same time is crazy fun.
Summary: Earth Defense Force 2017 became a cult-classic due to the excessive, B-movie style cheesiness combined with the solid shooter mechanics and huge variety of weaponry, ranging from hilariously useless (firecrackers) or unnecessarily dangerous weapons (Air Tortoise), to the incredibly powerful weapons...
Summary: EDF: IA is a great game when played with friends, either Online, or with the rarely offered splitscreen mode.
Pros: Fun Co-Op, Spitscreen Co-Op, Destroyable Buildings/World, TONS of Weapons, Cool Armor Options, Cheap Price
Cons: Poor Graphics, Designed for Co-Op, boring by yourself, No Manual, Confusing Briefing System (When killing enemies, sometimes the audio overpowers characters telling you to move, and you may not notice for several minutes), Repetitive
Summary: Game makers FAIL to understand that sometimes graphics are NOT everything. The first Earth Defense Force was days of two player fun with tons of huge maps and awesome weapons with varying difficulties to almost impossible.
Summary: I wasn't planning on writing a review for this game but after seeing this overall for this game i had to. My friend bought this game and we played coop for a few hours.I had no expectations for this game since the first one wasn't very fun.
Summary: This review is compared to the first game. This new installment just doesnt keep up. First of all....Its alot shorter game than the first. The robots although sleeker looking,arent better than the first. The sounds for the guns are just not good.Kinda cheezy in fact.
Summary: This game is a lot of fun. If you're a button masher, like I tend to be, then this is a game for you. The split screen local multi player is awesome. I hate those that make you stay with in a certain radious, and this one does not do that. Good entertainment for the price.
