4.0 out of 5 stars Defending Earth with great Force!, 22 July 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Earth Defence Force 2017 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I bought a 360 for this game, honestly; the first game that I personally wanted to play on the 360 was Earth Defence Force 2017.

Anyway, it takes the best elements from Third Person Shooters (MDK, Giants, Armed and Dangerous, Gungrave, The Ratchet and Clank series, etc) and the enemy overload of Serious Sam 1+2 and blends it into one jap-originated game that single handedly re-defines a new standard for Third person shooters.

Basically, theres an invasion, starting with ants, and you end building your soldier up using weapons, armor and collectibles making your soldier stronger, along with other EDF teams aim to overcome the alien invasion with brute force, mission by mission.
The giant cities most missions are set in are almost fully destructible, you can shoot and destroy buildings, for fun or just for strategy, trapping, crushing and killing the giant creatures. The enemies get bigger, stronger and badder, throughout the missions and on the difficulty settings.
The graphics aren't state of the art for the 360, but with all the pure chaos, enemies, explosions, screen shakes and fabulously detailed hovering motherships...you begin to seriously wonder how the 360 can cope with this game, oh, but it does...with such grace. It even plays in a co-op mode...

This is for those who enjoy pure, no brainer, pick up and play third person shooter chaos...

Turn your brain off and enjoy 'Defending the Earth with great force!'

(If you DON'T have a 360 and want to try some of this action try 'Global Defence Force' for PS2. Then you'll want a 360, believe me.)
