People like to complain that this game is inferior to the rest of the series, i dont think so

It might not share the same sense of scale with 2017 and 2025 - where everything is gigantic and comes in stupid numbers - but its still a fun game. Also it isn't as cheesy and funny

I like the different classes, although they play differently they're fun and fairly easy to get around with, unlike 2025 where you get your @ss kicked if you play with anything other than the base class (at least at first). There's plenty of different weapons, each one with advantages and disadvantages that will keep you hooked, looking for the best combo.
I dont like that it takes so long to level up a class to the max, and the campaign could be longer.

Overall is a fun game, and if you like 3rd person shooters you might like it

I never played a EDF game before and I heard of it being watered down and not as good as its japanese counter parts, This is the first American made Earth Defense Force! Thus, I thought this would be a good introduction to the game franchise!

It was! I had so much fun playing this game. Its like a third person Serious Sam! Run and Gun down millions of enemies down. that keep bum rushing you so much that even the strongest of soothing anal cream would not suffice! You got to endure the onsluaght, and hope for the best!

You get 4 armor sets. I love playing as Tactical, Spamming sentries and SMG gun fire! One thing I noticed is the difficulty is sporadic! Missions can be downright easy, but when replaying the same mission it would be difficult as hell! Very random outcomes and I dont know what to think of this. It keeps me on my toes but sometimes a relaxing smooth mission to level up would be nice!

Speaking of leveling up, this game is almost MMO levels with all the grinding!! Which kind of bores me a bit but overall? I can recommend it! It's a nice little game to pass the time.

Only play(ed) this because a friend bought it for me, as kind of a joke with how much I hated EDF 2017. Not much better in terms of gameplay (actually many less missions) and worse in terms of achievements.

Very generic feeling game engine, but I have played much worse before. The game starts off pretty basic and there is not much to say, but eventually you unlock badass new weapons machineguns and RL and stuff and get to drive tanks and mechs and fk up enemies big time. The four classes all feel the same because of the weapons all feeling similar but they all have different skills which is neat. The game gets props for making the enemies giant ants, spiders, ticks, hornets, aliens, and what not. You get to fight massive gigantic boss versions of them too but the bosses aren't just the same texture made bigger they look like metal monsters. I can only imagine how much worse fighting millions of giant bugs would be than any other enemy. Well maybe if the enemy was hundreds of thousands of gigantic gay marriages. That would be a nightmare come true.

Generic engine, basic game, but is a lot of fun as the game goes on. Satisfying mindless fun for sitting down from a hard day and just letting your brain rest. If it was a AAA title it would be amazing 10/10 but it is just too generic to be anything over 7/10.

"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!

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!

Looking for a cheap game that is a blast to play? Do you like killing gigantic monsters and aliens that take up your whole screen? Then get this game. It's definitely worth the price it's at and extremely fun but I'd recommend bringing a friend or two along and take note that the co-op is only 3 players. But the wave defense mode can go up to 6. All in all if playing as cool looking soldiers with four different classes who kill gigantic alien bugs and huge bosses. All while having an epic arsenal at your hands sounds fun, then this is definitely the game for you. It does only have three chapters with 5 decently lengthed missions each in them so the game itself is kinda short but definitely does have some replayability like the different difficulties. I'd recommend starting on normal but after you get your characters leveled up boost it up to the next ones and try playing again. The game becomes much more challenging almost dreadfully so. I give it an 8/10.

It's nothing groundbreaking nor praise worthy, but gosh darn it, it sure is fun as hell. You are pitted against endless amounts of ants, tarantulas, ticks, and more because they are trying to end all life on the earth. I mean, come on. That sounds awesome, and it is. The story is lame, but the game play is pretty solid. I really liked the different classes that had differing strengths and abilities. It adds a bit more flavor to game. Oh, and don't get me started on the arsenal. It's overwhelming. A plethora of weapons from , If I am correct, around six categories. Now imagine all that, but with friends. It's a damn good time. The co-op adds so much more fun and I loved the survival mode. Literally endless amounts of bugs versus you and whoever you wish to tag along. And as for bugs, I encountered millions (haha get it? Humor). But the bugs that ruin a game? I encountered none. It ran smoothly and nothing hindered me from enjoying the game. It's cheap, fun action. $10 is a steal of a price, so if it goes on sale pick it up instantly. It might BUG you if you don't (I'm funny). Oh, and if you like weapons be sure to pick the DLC as well because it adds more of them which is always a good time.

This game is so awesome! Shooting giant things with enormous explosions and destructible environments. Just mindless shooting fun. The graphics aren't that great but that keeps the frame rate soled because there's a lot of ♥♥♥♥ going on the screen. I hope EDF 2025 comes to the pc because a lot of people say it's even better! EDF! EDF! EDF! EDF!
