Thousands of giant insects and aliens once again ravage the earth, and only the Earth Defense Force can stop them. Defend the city of New Detroit against an infestation bigger and meaner than ever before. Destroy these monsters at all costs, even if it means turning entire city blocks into rubble!
Enjoy raw arcade shooter satisfaction on a gigantic modern scale. Collect over 300 weapons: assault rifles, rocket launchers, energy weapons, sniper rifles, grenade launchers and more! Play with 4 upgradeable armor types: Jetpack, Battle, Tactical, and Trooper. Experience Massive replayability through arcade style scoring, tons of weapons to collect, and multiple difficulty levels in every game mode!
In addition, the game also features a six player Survival mode that pits a human squad against a nonstop onslaught of the largest enemies the aliens have to offer. New Detroit’s giant bug problem is unavoidable, and mankind’s last hope lies with the Earth Defense Force. Defend the world from the insect invasion, even if it means blowing up the entire city as part of the extermination process.
Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon and the soldiers are equipped better than ever in the latest cult classic iteration that follows in the footsteps of Earth Defense Force 2017 (Japanese Title “Earth Defense Force 3” developed by Sandlot), and Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon continues the rich history and hardcore fun of the series.

This game is pure chaos. Missiles and acid spit flying everywhere, explosions that clear 4 city blocks every time you fire.

The online co-op works just fine and is a lot of fun. Several classes to choose from. I think they did a good job maintaining most of the cheesy lines and feel of it all that's within the series.

If you play levels on harder difficulties you have a chance for even better gear. Slow at first, but picks up fast when you get a good couple of items.

Personally I really like the heavy class. Hold up a shield and fire a missile at your feet to explode everything around you? Yes, please!!

EDF!!!!! EDF!!!!! EDF!!!!! EDF!!!!!

This game is good, but there are thousands of bugs and it gets really annoying. I cant play the game for a minute without coming accross a bug, and it gets very frustrating.

"You're it until you're dead or I find someone better!"

Spiders and ticks and ants, OH MY! Where do I start? Bugs, guns, some kind of invisible wall? Seriously fun game that doesn't take itself too serious. This game is well worth the full price.

A third person shooter that's easy to pick up and as fun to play solo as it is with friends. Select one of four unique armors, choose from over 200 weapons, and get ready to kick some major bug butt.

Once on the field, the commentary between allies and the tips provided by the higher ups will have you laughing everytime.

As for those that typically avoid ports for their many faults and issues, you'll find none of that here. Outside of one spelling error this game is near flawless. Complete key binding, full controller support, and satasfactory graphics settings.

So click 'ADD TO CART' and join team lightning today!

If this game is considered one of the weaker Earth Defense Force games, I can't wait to play the other ones because I absolutely love this game.

It feels kindof like Starship Troopers. The missions are quite long and feel like mini-movies. Kill the space ants!

It's almost 3 years after it's release, and they still kick ♥♥♥.

Like Arcade ish gameplay? Check.
Like Explosions...And Lot's Of them? Check
Like Shotguns that have HOMING pellets? Sure!
Like Killing Bugs With a MIRV Missile? It's here!
Aaand many more!

When Ameican Studios Touch Japanese games, They tend to make it WORSE (Take example of Ace combat Assault horizon, it makes the Ace combat look like "Call of duty in skies" They messed up too much, and especially Too many DLCs) But this one, Not many has changed....I'm impressed.
The Campaign is fun, but it's more fun if you're with your friend! And no tutorial needed, You proably know how an FPS Work, So yeah, BLAST THEM TO PIECES!
Although The gun sounds are quite decent, graphics are decent, almost everything is decent, But they're similliar to Sandlot's (The makers of the Japanese EDF games) EDF Games.

PROS
-FAST PACED INTENSE ACTION
-LOTS OF BUGS! (Litterally!)
-MANY WEAPONS!
-CHEESY DIALOUGES!
-EVERYTHING YOU SEE CAN BE DESTROYED!
-UNIQUE WEAPONS!

CONS
-Gun Sounds are....Okay, but not good.
-The soundtrack Needs to Be LOUDER
- Weapon World models are kinda limited
- Kinda Feels "Lonely"
- Multiplayer Seems Dead.

9/10 WOULD BUY!!

AND PORT THE OTHER EDF TO PC!

Screw all y'all this game is great fun. Sure, it's mindless and repetitive but that's sorta what makes it so great. Excellent for a lazy night, especially with a friend (it has online multiplayer and all so go nuts my dudes)

What I liked:
  • Campy stupid enemies and lots of them to kill
  • Fun overpowered weapons
What You Need to Know:
  • This game runs @ 30 fps, unless you download a mod to fix it,stupid developer
  • This game is very grindy in terms of leveling up, pair that with very mindless gameplay, this will not be fore alot of people
  • The reload mechanics is similiar to Gears of War, but the window to perfect reload is so small, it's annoying asf.
  • The bosses are fun, but some take too much damage, like the queen ant, she is a b*tch.
  • You get 4 classes to choose from:
    tank with high capacity weapons and shield
    jetpack with snipers(jetpack is weak though)
    assault is jack of all trades, with fast reload and revive and can use all weapons
    tactical which has deployable turrets and mines
  • Voice chat is always on and is gargabe. You will hear echo from the game when chatting with friends in discord
  • If you don't plan on replaying this game, it is really short and ends restarting the first mission right away. lol

My Score:
C

Recieved as a Gift
Completed in:5 hours( more if replayed)

Games similar:
  • Earth Defense Force 4.1 ( has more content)

I wasn't expecting much but I ended up playing through it exclusively. Blasting bugs felt great and the changing objectives & voiceovers really make you feel like you're leading your squad on a mission in Starship Troopers! BRAVO ZULU, LIGHTNING!

EDF! EDF! EDF! Was a blast to play through on my first walkthrough. Second walkthrough though. Well, it's a good way to get yourself to fall asleep I guess.

Many will criticize this game for "being horrible", "a laughing stock of the EDF lineup", "the ants are racist", and "it gave my dog hives and slept with my aunt Ruth!". The criticizing never ends when this game is mentioned in the same paragraph with "EDF". However it's not THAT BAD of a game. Really, it's got a special spot on the shelf next to other EDF games. I will admit that I DID have more fun with 2017 and 4.1(japan 1st, then PS4, soon *PC) as they had many more levels, more variety, and more replayability in acquiring stuff. (side note: I was so excited about EDF 4.1 that bought the Japanese version when it released on PS4. Then the US version when it released for PS4. As soon as the Steam edition hits a sale I'm buying it too!) So those are better games and are true to the feel of what people call EDF. However this game is STILL and EDF title, it is just by a different publisher and that means it has a different feel and taste to it. Is it awesome? YES. Is it full of bugs? :P YES, and spiders, and giant metal mantis robots too! (no software bugs that I've found!) Also unlike 4.1 (as of yet 8/16) it does have genocide guns for each of the armors, which are freaking awesome.

So is it worth whatever they are charging for it? Yes! On sale? Grab it!

Two things... go out and search for how to change the fps to 60. I was one my last achievement grind before I found out about this and it looks much more crisp and PC-like. Also do yourself a huge favor and spend at least an hour of shooting Kicker (npc) on the first stage. Just get it out of your system early so you won't waste time doing it later. Trust me... that jerk brought me and Cyrus (other NPC) to our knees WAAAAAYYYYYY too many times.

K, awesome game, get it if you like EDF and are bored for some reason. Also EDF 4.1 >>> EDF:IA. It just does. But this is like.... pre EDF 4.1 so... it's alright. Get both!
