I played the xbox version of this game and beat it with all the classes. I just started playing the PC version and it feels much better. I has better weapons and more everything. I've been a EDF fan way back modding my PS2 to play the import version of the EDF games. It's not the orig EDF by no means but has allot of good elements. That being said it is worth the 12 bucks it cost and everyone who hasn't played a EDF should and with friends. I had no problems with this game online and off (There is allot to be said about that) The PC version gets a big thumbs up compared to the console version. Only wish the 4k video setting worked. That's to only bad thing I can say about the game. Give it a try and wait until you get to teir 3 weapons before you give the judgement. Enjoy!

Earth Defense force does not try to out do other games with stunning graphics or a in depth story line, Earth Defense force goes for the old Si-fi B movie. The enjoyment of this game comes from killing giant ants and Leaping Spiders. The game that came before it, Earth Defense force 2017 was an embody exclusive that brought me and my Friend countless hours of joy. This game was made for fun. Highly recommend you try it out

5.2/10 A sad off-shoot of a loved title.

EDF has a bit of a following, and to gift those folk with this game could be considered an offence. However for those who have not had the chance yet to experence EDF, you will not exactly be blown away with this one. Unfortunately it lacks immersion, gameplay, graphics, optimisation, sound, weapon quality, enemy AI and general quality, and thats just the top of the iceberg. It's whole foundation compared to the rest of the franchise is just dripping wet with nonsense.

You may think this then to be a negative review, and typically you would be right, but I still had fun playing it. Still had fun bringing down the bosses, still had fun collecting the weapons and leveling up and still had fun rolling through the game again after completing it. Ultimately I have to recommend this title even with it's flaws as it still anchors onto the EDF franchise and there is a smidge of amusement to squeeze out if you want it.

In summary, Earth Defence Force: Insect Armageddon is a title that under-shot it's potential to be a good game, and landed firmly in the OK camp. It's OK, it's fine, just dont expect too much.

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon (Alternative Title: "Kill Aliens With Bloom: The Game") is a game where you shoot giant bugs and some alien ships. If you’re familiar with the other games in the series, like 2017 and 2025, be aware this is a different game due to not being developed by Japan.

Overall, the game is nice. While best played with friends, the game does allow for AI teammates that will try their best to revive you when you go down, as well as supplying supporting fire. Dialogue in the game is humorous, in a silly sort of way. Guns are somewhat unique, although on a much smaller scale than other EDF games. (You ever shoot a rocket launcher and find out it splits into a bunch of swirly plasma missiles that crash down and bombard the area?) The feel of each class is enjoyable, and I don’t feel completely useless if my class’s specialty fails (looking at you, 2025). Each class has their own thing they do, and they stand out from each other. Except... maybe Trooper. That's the normal jack-of-all-trades class. No specialty, just "flexibility" to choose from any weapon class to use. Bless your soul if you choose to play Trooper.

Cons. Campaign is short. I suppose this is meant to be remedied by the Campaign Remix mode, and three difficulty levels, but I know some people tend to drop games once the campaign is finished. Not to mention that repeating missions can get very boring. As far as I’m aware, absolutely nobody plays Survival mode. Story is weak. It doesn’t even get resolved, even with the alternate ending. It's assumed you're just here to shoot bugs and aliens, and doesn't give you much more. This game is kind of old and not incredibly popular, online multiplayer will probably be a little empty. I can’t say I checked. If you want to keep playing after beating the campaign, maybe you think Inferno difficulty will be a fun challenge, understand you will be in for a real grind. Achievement hunting? Haha. You’re in for a long ride.

If those things don’t really seem that awful, well, give it a spin. The game was fun enough for me to play it on two systems.

A fun game to pick up and play for a few hours at a time, this shooter places you into a very well scripted b-movie vibe millitary shooter.(Playtime does not reflect my substantial offline time commitment)

Obviously you fight giant bugs and robot bugs in the streets of New Detroit with either two generic NPC soliders who don't really get a chance to show you much of thier personality except through the generic chatter they exchange during missions. Or you can replace the NPC's with online players (a much more helpful prospect, the NPCs are tragically underprepared for air combat). While the game advances or the waves of survival continue the types and abilities in enemies introdces new ways the enemy tries to bring the battle to you. The enemy types range from simplistic, to ludicrous health walls, or in the case of most flying enemies extremely challenging targets unless you are carrying the right weapons.

Luckily the game gives you a massive list of weapons to choose from as you play through and unlock more weapons with interesting differences like specific weapon spreads, tracking, DOT and explosion radius. These all may sound like basic shooter fare, but when coupled with the class abilities for each armor (which each have thier own weapon classes used and level up seperately) makes the experience drastically different for each armor. Wether you fly around with the jetpack, taking carefully aimed sniper shots (or rain death with a rocket launcher) from far above the battlefield, or use the tactical armor to drop turrets to add another gun while blasting with your weapon of choice, or play with the largest weapon selection with the solider or use the heavy to deliver maximum firepower to the enemy.

Unfortunately after beating the main campaign, there story remains totally static, difficulty increases simply give enemies more health, even in the Game + mode the only difference is that enemy types are changed so advanced enemies show up earlier than normal. This makes going back into the story (the only way to advance armor level since survival uses a set level core trooper armor) something of a chore, but with a few friends playing for fun it becomes more enjoyable. Survival is a fun distraction, but without any advancement beyond a number of waves it can become stale once you stop trying out new weapons (especially since you can't unlock new weapons or amor levels in survival) and maps.

All in All: I really like this game on principal, my first playthrough solo was a huge blast, but I regretably didn't get as much out of subsequent returns to the battlefields of New Detroit. Initial Playthrough: 9/10 (only the prolongued sequences of me trying to shoot down aircraft with a shotgun or gernade launcher prevented the ten). Subsequent Playthrough: 6/10 Man.... it just feels grindy once I change to a new armor... and the NPC playstyle only compounds this issue.

Final score: 8/10

When I first saw this game on Steam, I thought it was just another low budget indie game brught in by Steam Greenlight, and I was skeptical at first when buying, ready to refund it when I expected it to be boring or generic.

I don't know what happened, But 16 hours passed.

Don't get it if you want a good story. Get it for its gameplay, and remember to bring a friend, as the online isn't plentiful in people from what I've heard.

Can't wait for EDF 4.1 to be released on Steam though.

"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!

EDF was originally released as a Simple series game like Puzzle Quest. The Simple series was relatively cheap and varied wildly in quality. This is the first and only game in the series that wasn't developed by Sandlot.
It's an FPS where you shoot giant bugs with various weapons while wearing power armor with various abilities.
There's also a bad end which my friends and I got after our playthrough.
All in all, pretty fun. A nice gem and definitely underappreciated. I'd recommend checking out the other games in the series.

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
