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. This one on the other hand, introduces a host of crappy non-gameplay mechanics, annoying objectives, worse enemies, worse controls, worse weapons, and overall is trying to be too much 'better' than its...
Summary: Earth Defense Force: 2017 was one of the best games I've ever played. This game did not live up to the standards set by 2017; Insect Armageddon has better looking enemies but there's significantly less of them, they have removed the Dinomechs, Helicopters, and Airbikes. They have made the Carriers and Walkers significantly harder to kill; to the point where it's just not fun anymore.
Summary: I was excited when I heard they were making a sequel to EDF. The original was one of my favorite games! Not much production value (like a B movie), but boy was it fun. I loved the fact that there was only 5 achievements, one for beating the game on each of the 5 difficulty levels. Another thing that I liked was the fact that after you played through the game once, you could try any level on any difficulty level.
