Being a huge fan of the EDF games going way back to the budget release of Monster Attack on the PS2, I was eagerly anticipating the release of Insect Armageddon. However on finally playing it i was totally disappointed with the changes they have made to one of my favorite franchises. My main problems being that.....
1: Enemies are now pretty much just insects, before you had all manner of stomping robots and giant earth shattering behemoths to take down, but now the game becomes boring very quicly as 90 percent of the time (other than the odd robot here an there) you will be blasting the same spiders and ants.
2: The weopans no longer feel like they pack any punch. This is mainly due to the fact that the creatures you shoot just disintegrate rather than flying off in different directions squirting green blood like they used to. No longer can you launch a rocket into a busy crowd of bugs, and then chuckle to your self as they are launched pirouetting in all directions. Now they just dissolve in a very boring and unsatisfactory way.
3: All of the battles are set in an american city. No more humoungus sky scrapers, beaches, cliffs etc. This generally makles the game feel incredibly dull in comparison to the areas that battles were fought in the previous games.
Basically I would recommend that you do your self a favour and hunt down a copy of this games predecessor "Earth defence forde 2017", as its the game that this one wants to be.Earth Defence Force 2017 (Xbox 360)
