Earth Defense Force 2017 review

  • Campy B-movie charm
  • Variety in enemies
  • Tons of content and value
  • Isn't the prettiest game ever
  • Vehicles handle badly
  • Almost certainly tough to find

This constant, enthusiastic urge to one-up itself across a beefy 53 levels is a huge part of the game's appeal - you literally can't wait to see what's going to turn up next. But when you add in more than 150 weapons, five difficulty settings, relatively competent squad members and graphics that aren't prize-winning, but can draw 40 or more giant insects and flying saucers tearing the crap out of a fully destructible city and almost never chug? Then, it's easy to see what this is: a corny, geeky dream come true that's destined to be an underground classic.

    I picked this up for $15 new at a truck stop recently (the same one where I found God Hand, strangely enough), and MAN, it is fun. Mindless fun, with tons of bugs, both of the insect variety and the glitch variety, but still pretty addicting!

    My buddy just got his hands on this the other day. I cannot wait to give it a shot!
