A brand-new copy of Earth Defense Force runs you $50, which is one of the best entertainment values out there so far this year. As long as you can overcome your own biases and enjoy some old-fashioned plotless alien blasting, you’ll get hours of fun out of Earth Defense Force 2025.
It's the most cheesiest game I've ever played and it's awesome. Each class feels powerful and reliable. The only problem is the game can lag. Playing on multi player and having the fencer class can all most ruin the experience becouse of the lag issues
I am appalled to see this game get such low scores, critics are such idiots. any ways, this game is a perfect video game, solid gameplay, action, controls, and context, at time of this review I beaten every level on normal (theres 85) and am going to go do them all again as a different class. there is just SO MUCH replayability its insane. anyone who doesn't like this game suffers from a damaged brain which can not register fun.
Words can't explain how awesome this game is! I liked 2017, Insect Armageddon was good but wasn't as good as 2017. 2025 surpasses them both in every way. There are over 85 levels too; more than most shooters this gen.
You have to do a lot of walking around and scavenging in the game to unlock items and with one character type this can take ages. In fact, getting through any level with this character feels like it takes forever. I feel the game can also be a tad bit annoying. Here's why: You pick up many weapons crates on the hardest difficulty and almost get to the end, you die. You now have just had to not only restart the entire level, but also you don't get the loot! And to top that off you can get many duplicates of the same weapon, and you don't even know what you get until the end of the level. So that means the game has grinding for weapons if you want a specific one ( and NOBODY likes grinding) but, also you don't even know what you're getting so you cant just quit and restart until you get it. Moving on to the gameplay the game is actually fun and enjoyable. Besides a few minor glitches (most of which were actually funny ones) the game didn't have any major glitches. The loading is HORRIBLE though and it takes a really ling time even to load cutscenes. After you finish watching the unskipable (which is the worst idea, ever) cutscenes you face yet another loading screen. This is every time you die! You have to watch the same cutscene over and over. The loading screens are very long as well. So once you've finished the aging process and finally get to see the game you may be thinking " Wow this Armored guy with guns looks like every other generic futuristic sci-fi shooter solider what can i do to make them not so simplistic and make them look like less of a boring **** and more of a colourful one" so you go to customization. Well, its less then mediocre but, at least its there? You have colours you can pick to slightly shade your characters armour and I'm pretty sure there's 2 colours you get to pick. Sort of like a primary and a secondary. It's not really noticeable at all. So once you've finished colouring your **** and start playing after 3 more century long cutscenes you get to play the game for real this time. The controls are pretty nice for the most part except for some characters it can be catastrophic. While the controls do work they take some getting used to because playing for your first time you're going to notice that they're about as confusing as a nun watching porn on a Sunday morning. Once you do graduate your 2 year college course in learning them however, they do work surprisingly well. The game doesn't have a tutorial I'm pretty sure so it's inevitable that you're going to be left to figure this out. After that you move on to the levels and the design of them. After playing the game for a while with several of the classes i noticed the game pretty much didn't have any objectives besides: Go here and kill the things, Done? Now go HERE and kill these things! I never really payed attention to the story either because I was too busy killing the things but, I'm pretty sure it was mediocre just to give you an excuse to go from point A to B and kill the things. Now lets look at the things your killing. Go look at a book full of insects and imagine them giant sized. There you go. All you're doing is large scale pest control with high powered weapons. The civilians all do the same thing as well which is run in the opposite direction of the things and get eaten anyways, and the characters you play as aren't really that interesting either. Except one looks like it was copy-pasted from a vocaloid and given a jetpack that for some reason has what appears to be hair made of plasma energy coming from it. One thing that really bothered me about all the characters is their movement speed as well. You either go significantly faster than your allies or you lag behind them in the one character that takes ages to get anywhere. Surprisingly, they are actually kinda useful in this game of you're playing on a harder difficulty. If you're playing on an easier one though they're about as useful as my grandma giving you tech advice. Graphically? the game isn't really impressive, but I've seen spiders and ants before and I've played other futuristic sci-fi shooters so I pretty much knew what everything was supposed to look like, anyways. The game itself is really fun though when you play it and I could assume it is really fun to play if you have buddys to play it with. Sadly I'm an antisocial **** who stays at home all day so I can't tell you whats that's like. The game is just a good game to play if you're bored and want to do something. Anyways, 7/10
Can't say a good word on this port. Maybe the 360 version was nice, but not this crap. Don't think i'm a hater, i love the series, but it's been years and i still remember that looooooow fps and it's dropped in action even more! I've tried **** version, Eng version - no difference at all. Annoyingly long loading times, poor split screen reduces the whole perfomance to the floor. DO NOT play this on PS3.
PC, X360, PS4 is OK! Look forward to these versions. I'd personally recommend EDF 4.1.
This is by far one of the worst games I have ever played, how can anyone sane give this game anything higher than a 3????This game came out in 2014!!!And I have played games from 1999 that play better!! The graphics are bad, the **** gameplay is atrocious!! Shooting is terrible, moving is terrible how can anyone give this game good reviews? A 69 on metacritic is too high. Just cause it's japanese doesn't make it good.
