Gameplay is simple, clear an area and progress. You wil almost never be able to rest as action is intense and enemies wil never let off. This game is essentially starship troopers set on earth, the B-movie feel is done perfectly. There are mission objectives in the loosest sense as they will generally be destroy everything in this area. The reason I find this superior to previous entries in this respect, is because this allows for you to utilise the sandbox city to its maximum. You get to run around in giant areas with vehicles and mechs to utilise when you get to the new objective.

The game is a case of quality versus quantity, the game is a much more solid product with decent visuals, no slowdown or frame rate issues and lagless online. All issues that plagued previous entries. This game is best played in co-op either local or online, the campaign can be played with AI bots but they are never a replacement for the fun you can have playing with your friends.

There is a mass of weapons 300+ in all, 4 characters classes and many reasons to play this game over and over. Weapons are bought with in game currency, and you can only access weapons after reaching a specific level. All characters have different weapon sets. There are 3 difficulty settings, but the higher difficulties are literally impossible unless you play through every difficulties campaign to access better weapons. The true ending of the game can only be seen at max difficulty. There is inclusion of split screen co-op, 3 play campaign online, 6 player survival

From hearing all that you should be able to establish if this game is for you. I think its worth checking gameplay videos to see if this is a style of game you'd like.

Someone get the Oxford English Dictionary boys on the phone, because the definition of 'criticproof' has just been rewritten... by giant ants. Yup, turns out it's pretty hard to say mean things with any conviction about a game that lets you blow up colonies of lorry-sized creepy crawlies, UFOs and unhinged robots with jetpack-sporting soldiers.

Carrying all the narrative weight of the ingredients on a box of muesli, it's clear from the shonky production values and budget price that this is a B-game. But seeing as EDF revels in B-movie clichés, the games fugly engine and ludicrous physics actually work in its favour. And when you can level city blocks while fending off 50-foot tarantulas with a rocket launcher, who cares if the textures aren't Uncharted 2 standard.

The range of gargantuan insects to send to that great back garden in the sky is obviously the game's strongest selling point. Pleasingly, though, all this bug brutality is backed up by meaty shooting mechanics, which makes painting the sides of buildings with oversized tics a constant (albeit guilty) pleasure. The quantity of content also impresses, with four different soldier classes, over 300 weapons and dozens of campaign missions to plough through, alone or in online co-op.

Played in small bursts, EDF's knowingly daft, trashy action is an unapologetic hoot. Admittedly, the relentless pace and lack of variety grates after a while - this is a game about shooting until your eyes start to go funny after seeing your 143rd explosion in five minutes. But with more and more PS3 titles setting themselves up as worthy forms of artistic expression, it's hard not to root for the game with all the giant ant murder.

Earth Defense Force was originally a japanese game released under the simple series of low budget game titles by it's publisher D3, at least so says Wikipedia. What I do know is that Insect Armageddon is great fun despite it's lack of production values.

So what are the games about? Nothing and everything. The earth is being invaded by an alien force referred to as "Ravagers". They come in many forms with giant robots called Hectors, carrier space ships, gun ships as well as modified terran life forms such as giant ants, spiders, ticks, wasps etc. You play the role of a generic unnamed Earth Defense Force Soldier tasked with defending the earth. That's pretty much it.

The game plays out across a mission like structure. You choose from one of four classes with various abilities including jet packs, shields and portable turrets. Each class can be leveled up with battle experience giving access to bigger and often stranger weapons, some of which need to be found or purchased, my favorite is the overwhelmingly powerful, stupid and hilarious Pesticide Mortar. Your chosen class is then dropped into it's open world location and sets off.

Most of the game has no real objectives, go here, kill that, go there kill that etc the whole while having some (intentionally i'm sure) bad dialogue and comic voice acting chatting over the EDF radio. None of that is important though because the fun is having a huge wave of killer ants charging at you in large swarms while you let rip with your weapons often leveling buildings, destroying cars and generally causing carnage, everything is destructible. It's simple mindless fun, nothing wrong with that sometimes.

As fun as the game is the main story is really pretty short and just sort of stops out of nowhere.
