This is a spin off of the low budget Earth Defence Force series made by an american devolper instead off the original japanese team(who are working on EDF 4) and as a result this are a bit differant this time around. Dont let that put you off though as the game is still imense fun especially in split screen mode or 3player co-op online. The premise of the the game is simple,giant bugs and robots are attacking the city and its your job to stop them,your never told why they are attcking but thats irrelevent because its not about story here its about action, and this is what the game delivers in spades. Choosing 1 of 4 diffent soldiers(which you can level up to get better amour,weapons ect.)you shoot,derstory,stamp and crush your way through 15 missions of arcade action, taking out giant ants, spiders, 100ft tall robots and half the city to boot(all buildings in this game can be destroyed) its tremndous fun but the game is quite short, around 3-4 hours on fisrt playthrough on normal setting but thats not really an issue as the game has good replay value. Once finished you unlock a remixed campaign mode which is a bit harder than standard campaign. Also availible is survival mode which sees you(or up to 5 other team mates online) stay alive as long as you can racking up big scores agains never ending swarms of bad guys.
The graphics in this game are average at best, being a budget title thats what you would expect but the frame rate stays steady 90% of the time only dropping now and again, its not as bad as the other guy reviewing this game said, trust me. The game does play a bit diiferantly compared to the last game(EDF 2017) which may upset some fans(the levels are longer,the enviroments are less varied and it does get a bit more repetitive) and its a game that your either going to enjoy or not, this wont appeal to everyone but i enjoyed it and im on my third playthrough.
