Product Details:

The bugs are back in Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon, and its no picnic for the world's elite soldiers as the most concentrated giant insect invasion ever threatens human civilization unless the Earth Defense Force (EDF) can stop them! Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon is a co-op multiplayer Arcade Shooter that gives the player the ability to destroy thousands of giant bugs and turn an entire city to rubble in an unforgettable gaming experience built for replay.

Insect Armageddon continues to follow the rich history of casual fun and addictive gameplay that made the franchise a cult classic. Insect Armageddon also adds a new aspect to the Earth Defense Force series that was born in Japan, with additional elements for all EDF soldiers to experience. The Campaign mode that lets up to three players team up online to battle the insects and aliens across a completely destroyable city. Every EDF soldier is armed with over 150 weapons and four upgradeable armor sets and engages in nonstop arcade action that is the fastest and deadliest in the series. 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 to defend the world from the insect swarm, even if it means blowing up the entire city as part of the extermination process.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Simple game, only decent for couch co op This is one of those games that I’m very glad I paid under 20$ for. If I had paid 60 for it, I’d be flipping the **** out! That isn’t saying it’s a terrible game, but It is saying it’s not worth 60. Gameplay is fun. I’m a fan of the zombie apacolypse. The “facing an army of enemies” concept is one I’m not very picky about. This is the same, but it’s bugs/aliens. I didn’t grasp the full concept, but from what I understand the plot is that aliens have invaded, and to add to their tech and numbers, they used our insects (ant’s, spiders, wasps, etc), made them gigantic, and added the giant insects into their ranks. So you start off fighting insects, but soon face insects and their alien parents. Graphics are one of the lowest points in the game. It looks like a xbox game (original xbox) or PS2, but the destruction physics are more then either could handle, or at least would’ve really been pushing them. So it’s no doubt a PS3/360 game, but just barely. I stress the “just barely” part of that sentence. Sound. Nothing amazing, but not much to expect from this game. Think of an arcade shooter in a nickelcade. Sound consists of shooting, insect sounds, splashing, smooshing, vehicle basic sound effects, building destruction basic sound effects…. Basically, nothing but BASIC sound effects. They add a few lines to brief you or update you on what your next mission objective is. That’s about it. So not really any highs, but when you see what kind of game this is, u’ll understand that what little sound effects there are, fit the game that has little of anything else. Controls are solid, it’s basically an arcade game. This is the kind of game that I’d expect to see on xbl marketplace as a arcade game for 20ish bucks. It’s not complex. There’s no lvling up, no looting, no exploring, no anything of basic games now days. The only thing you get is experience to increase lvl. With lvl you don’t upgrade perks or stats or anything of that sort, you just unlock weapons. When looking at weapons you will see “req lvl 6 for unlock” “req lvl 10 for unlock” etc. Don’t mistaken this for a lot of diff guns. There are 4 playable classes, each have a total of… maybe 18ish guns. So 4x18=64 total, out of the entire game…. That’s nothing. Not to mention that weapons only work for one specific character class. The game world reminds me of Mercenaries 2. Every building is destructible, but as old as mercs 2 graphics are, these are even lower. Looks like a 2001 game. The buildings are perfectly square box’s, with windows on them. Not even exotic shapes at all. If you don’t know about mercs 2, imagine grand theft auto 3. Really old box buildings. It gets the point across, but still very low from todays standards. This is a shooter first and foremost. When I consider shooters, there are three types. Battlefield types where it takes a lotta skill, you need to be deadly accurate, know how to lead your shots, all kinds of comples. Simple games like halo where you can spray in the general direction, or with splash dmg weapons (rocket launchers, nades, etc) the blast radius is huge. Or games like call of duty that are right between the two. The shooting in this game is no doubt relatable to halo. It’s simple spray in the general direction and eventually the enemy dies. On bosses there will be weak points that are glowing red, but they are huge red spots, it’s easier to hit them, harder to miss. Last thing to rate, is content. Like I said the only form of lvl up/things to work for (aside from achievements/trophies) is the weapons. All missions are the exact same, no variety, every mission they add a new slightly tougher enemy or boss, but that’s it. All settings are urban, no challenge of any sort. It’s not like most shooters where you go from deserts, to snow areas, to forests, urban, rivers, etc. This is just urban, more urban, with a side of urban. Mission’s I think there are 4 missions, and 4 chapters in each (roughly 16 maps/things to do) which is low. Even cod games that focus on online play still have the same amount of missions, but they are much larger, more variety, batter graphics, etc. I hold COD at low regards, so when I compare a game as lower then COD, then it’s pretty low on the content meter, which is the biggest reason I’m glad I didn’t pay 60 bucks. I recommend this if you want a cheap couch co op game, that is if you have experience and have over played something like borderlands (hail the king baby!). just know that it’s a 20ish buck game, worth 20ish bucks. You get what you pay for, don’t expect a 60$ game for 20ish.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Way Too Short & No Level Diversity Whatsoever My Recommendation: RENT Let me start off by saying I bought Earth Defense Force 2017 years ago and loved it in every way. I bought Insect Armageddon (IA) the day it came out expecting it to build off of 2017 and improve all the aspects of the first game. IA does do many things exceptionally: character classes with unique abilities and guns, graphics significantly improved, enemy designs improved. However, the game is way too short. Sure the levels/missions are a lot longer than the first but as a whole the campaign is about 1/3 the length that the first game's campaign was. The first game (2017) had over 60 levels and these level environments were very diverse including: large cities, ocean beaches with coastal towns and islands, open fields and hills, massive underground tunnels. I loved this variety of environments and levels. However, Insect Armageddon only has large cities--that's it. No level diversity whatsoever. I mean seriously how can they not include tunnel levels? Honestly when I beat the last mission in IA I thought I was about 1/3 of the way through the game--nope, it was over. I don't understand why they decided to make this game so short. I'm hoping they're going to release DLC with more levels but really any DLC they release ought to be free since this game on it's own is not a complete game whatsoever. I wish I hadn't bought this game even with the many great improvements and additions. They took away too much of what 2017 was and the additions do not make up for this unjustifiable lack of content. Honestly, I have not even touched Insect Armageddon since I beat it with my friend in the first week after it came out and if I'm going to play an Earth Defense Force game I'm going to play the first one--if only for the speeder bikes and firecrackers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MOST EPIC GAME AROUND One day, it was near my best friends b-day, so i was search for the perfect game for him. Then i found this game. I bought it, and played it right away. When i started playing, the game was impossible to stop playing. This game has all types of futuristic weapons you can use! And yes, there is a co-op mode. The 4 characters you start out with is Tactical, heavy, trooper, and my personal favorite, Jet. This characters have their own special ability! I don't recommend playing survival. You will die on like the Third round. But overall, I recommend this game to the HARDCORE GAMERS!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from EDF is just plain fun! EDF:IA, does nothing great... not the graphics, not the sound... but I can't put the game down! It is surprisingly fun! It is very hectic, but in a good way... If you like that the more you play and the more guns/abilities you unlock, then this is for you! The only downside has been, you have to kill all the insects in an area to advance and there have been times when there is one hiding off somewhere and you have to go find it before you can advance but not often... Overall, it is a very fun game, and will last you a long time if you try and unlock everything. If nothing else, it is a great rental at redbox! Enjoy!
