In word, that is the description of what this game is. Not much in the way of tactics (Besides what to shoot, when to run for a health pack, when to go and revive your friends and using your characters abilities). Its just wall to wall blasting, all the time! Which is why this game is brillient.
Those who played and enjoyed the last game (EDF 2017) This game is how a sequal should be done- better in every way.
- Better controls (Manual reload button, separate roll button, a sprint button)
- Better graphics if you care for such a thing (now just average instead of just plain bad)
- Better sound (Many enemies can be identified just by the sound they make)
- The vehicles actually work this time (charging through the city in a tank with two friends manning side-mounted turrets is great fun, no helicopters this time though)
-More types of enemies (Ants, spiders, wasps, ticks, praying mantis, boss spiders that shoot ticks, really big robots, REALLY REALLY BIG ROBOTS,UFO's, Dropships, daddy long legs) Some with "Metal" varients that hit harder and are tougher.
- Armor classes: Trooper- standard but can use most weapon types, run faster and revive team mates more quickly. -Battle: slow but tough and can use the largest of weapons. Also has a riot shield to block attacks and an "Area effect blast" which is useful when your surrounded, just watch out for any nearby team mates! Jet: Fragile and weaker weapons but is really fast and can fly. Tactical: Average in weapons and stats but can build turrets to kill enemies. There are several different colours you can colour them with (Preset).
-Online multiplayer: 3 player online on campaign, 6 on survival. "jump in jump out" bots fill in if somebody quits. However there IS a host so if they go, everyone goes.

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.

Insect Armageddon is one of those games that can be surprisingly fun in short doses, but after extended play it becomes repetitive and boring. The gunplay is competent and shooting giant spiders into mush is mindlessly enjoyable, but given ten minutes it dawns on you that that's all you'll ever be doing. The game doesn't evolve or complicate in any way at all - apart from introducing bigger enemies and the occasional new weapon. There's never a sense of progression, or any compelling reason that would make you want to play on. Missions simply consist of running and gunning between checkpoints, with breaks here and there to take on a boss or hack into a terminal. I'm not entirely sure if the game is supposed to have a story, but if there was one it never grabbed my attention, and following five hours of bland and unrewarding combat, I was left empty and dissatisfied. In short, Insect Armageddon is a decent shooter wrapped in an experience that doesn't play well.

It in good condition and works just fine. This is a fun game especially if you have a few friends to play with. I got this cause i played the old one for the PlayStation 2 and it was great fun. This is also a great game there is a lot of chaos and its great fun to kill a lot of giant bugs. Would recommend this to people who like a lot of action.

I'll start with what I like - namely online multiplayer which boosts the fun factor going through the game with more people. It is definitely a blast in coop mode. The survival mode is also pretty good fun but no leaderboards (why?!!!). The graphics are much better this time around and everything looks much more detailed.

However there is an awful lot I don't like. The game is short - very short. The previous game (2017) had around 50 levels whilst this has 15. Took me around an hour to beat normal difficulty and that was on my own.

The nature of getting more powerful weapons I also do not like. In order to use more powerful weapons you must level up. In 2017 it was much simpler letting you use any gun at any point. Beating alot of the harder difficulties in 2017 simply required doing a level in inferno to get a decent weapon but that isn't possible in this.

There is a lack of variety in the environments. There is city, city, city, and yes - you guessed it - MORE CITY! Where are the mountains, beaches, etc... from 2017?

Before this game was launched, we were promised a constant framerate of 30fps but that gets chucked out of the window very quickly. It is no better than 2017 AT ALL. There are much less enemies on screen than 2017 and it never manages to reach the level of chaos as the previous game.

In terms of enemies there is - again - no variety. There are less types than 2017 and no bosses. There isn't even a final boss!!! The ending is a complete cop-out just to add insult to injury. No joke, the worst ending in any videogame - EVER!

Maybe a tiny gripe, but in 2017 when you killed an enemy they pinged across the level but in this they just disintegrate.

If this game didn't have online multiplayer then it would be a complete failure but my advice to anyone who hasn't heard of the series is just buy the previous game, 2017. Much more fun and also much cheaper.
