80's Arcades meets the 360!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Earth Defence Force 2017 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I have to admit I wasn't expecting great things from this game from the start , and I have been surprised.
It took be right back to the 1980's when I spent money in arcade machines 'killing' very similar looking aliens. The plot is to be expected, as are the weapons ... right from the start - It's a classic retro sci-fi shoot-em all!
The number of levels, aliens,and differnt weapons helps to keep you amused, and this all adds up to a nice little run-around-shotting-anything-that-moves game ... something that I feel some developers have in recent years over-complicated with plotlines that don't mesh. Simple is often best with this kind of game, and I feel this may end up being a bit of a dark horse.
All in all, it's worth buying just for the retro look and feel :o)
