its actually quite good,
This review is from: Earth Defence Force 2017 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Think space invaders - wave after wave of alien craft
Think Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter or Lost Planet - 3rd person shooter
combine the 2 then take away two thirds of their budget and you have this game..
Theres little to no tactics involved, just keep your finger on the trigger and run into the bugs with all guns blazing.
This game has obviously been made on a cheap budget but at least it doesnt pretend to be something its not and for that you have to give the game respect... this is the B-movie of video games but it works quite well.. the graphics are below average but even so from time to time they do look quite good, the animation is almost laughable and the frame rates are unstable but this game is fun, if you want a few hours of mindless gameplay where you just shoot shoot and shoot then you may enjoy this, it is very repetitive and altho the packaging boasts 50 missions those missions are very short.. theres no plot except aliens have invaded in the form of massive ant like creatures and other different types and they need to be destroyed and on the bright side this budget game doesnt carry a blockbuster price tag.. you get what you pay for and with this you get a no thrills game thats entertaining and as i said earlier, this game doesnt pretend to be anything other than what it is, something some big budget games could learn from... well done!
