Still the same incredible experience it was two years ago, only better. For new players it's a game full of twists and turns, daring level design and terrifying foes. For veterans it's the best version yet of an amazing formula, just as fresh and thrilling. It's a stunning experience from beginning to end, but I do hope the developers can fix the metagame elements and bump perfection up to the next level.
EDF delivers more fun, as strange as it gets. You know is going to be weak on the technical side, but it's really strong when it comes to entertain. If you're ok with its weaknesses, it's a game you should try.
My Honest opinion
~This game is AWESOME.
-Can't believe I never played it, or any EDG game until the month before Destiny 2 comes out..
-Destiny 2 has been out for a week and I have yet to play it once because I'm soooo **** into this game..
~ which makes No Sense cause it's to a popular game.....
~ here's why it's awesome
~ RANDOM WEAPON DROPS like all games..
Enemies can drop 1 of 3 boxes.
Red - permanent health boost.
- it's random which they drop, or if they drop at all..
At the end of a round you're boxes are unpacked and you find out if you found a NEW WEAPON.. and how much permanent health
You increased..usually 30-60. And as you're health increases it's easier as you have more &a more hit points..
--5 difficult settings. Easy -to-inferno
-the higher the difficulty the faster and re advanced the enemies and the whooole reason for playing on harder or inferno. Is because the weapons you get from drops are higher level based on the difficulty..
--THERES ONLY 1 LEVEL FOR EACH WEAPON..
SO a flamethrower thermal is a level 65 and powerful. Ur can only be randomly unboxed from a weapon box on inferno difficulty and on the latter half of the games levels...
And this is why the game has such amazing replay value..
I/you can't always beat a mission/level on inferno or even harder,,so you play it on hard or normal until you figure out which weapon...
---best part of this game is the weapons!!!
There's firecrackers- 5 different kinds..each its own weapon..
Firecrackers are light grenades. But the uber highest version of the firecrackers are amazing. Like 30 mini grenades that u can throw wicked fast one after another...
--there's 8 categories of weapons.
Specials, specials are where flamethrower, all kinds of full heal guns..their guns that fire health at u & teammates or vehicles and it heals em..only way AI teammates get health..
Oh yeah, u can only bring two weapons into a round/level and can only use those two the whoooole Round..
-so the rockets pretty much fly straight and fats and umph..
Misses tend to fire many at one time to area attack or highlight 20 insects and off goes the misses. Lighter power but easy way to
Cheese-snipe. Fire a 2nd time and most are dead..
Snipers are powerful ur slow reload. Same with shotguns..
I haven't played Multiplayer..which is PVE or coop..
I will though, PS4 name is Mcsipp
Guess the addictive part is the grind for new weapons sinc they are soooo unique.. I never know how the new weapon will work..
-the weapons do such unique,weird stuff. Like shoot double shots that go out in a V,,or bouncing shots off walls,,
And the environment is fully destructible..
In a fun **** means you can now walk through a area where the building made you go around,,and it means if a box drops on the roof= you can blow up building and get it on the ground...
Also means the insects can't walk onto the building and sneak attack or snipe u...
--I haven't had any glitches and bugs that effected immersion..
-- they announced a NEW eDf game coming out soon..
To my surprise :)
If you like LOOT hunting games,,or games with simple rules and basic controls,,and high quality control schemes then this is it..
Probably why I like it so **** I never do many xboxOne or PS4 reviews anymore..
If you click my name you'll see all my reviews are to help someone decide..
Not just a blind 10 or ZERO...
So worth it!!!
This is basically old EDF 2025 with better FPS and some graphical tweaks. Oh and some extra added content. Intentionally cheesy hoaky B movie science fiction fest. Facing off against huge insects and robots to combat the mother of all alien invasions in destructible environments. Four diverse classes with loads of weapons to unlock and weapon/health upgrades to grind. Very repetitive, but it never really gets old grinding for loot/health and 85 missions just like wow. Intense fun alone and loads of fun in local co-op with IRL people.
This game is fantastically terrible. This is what happens when Troma decides that they want to make a video game, and then they pump steroids into the guns.
- It is crazy repetitive
- Graphics are sub-par
- Animations almost amature
- Takes an incredible grind to make any progress on higher difficulties
- Script is silly and nonsensical
- Voice acting is laughable
I wouldn't change a thing.
new person to the Earth Defense force series. been playing with a friend he is a nut for this game series. for the last few weeks we play this every now and again. the game itself was pretty fun all the way til you reach at level 26 it is the prelude for when the game starts to become unfair. then 27 was fun but then 28 is when it becomes hell on earth. the game beyond that point becomes unfair and you have to start playing classes and using weapons that will carry you through it. level 31 becomes unplayable and unbeatable on hard difficulty even normal was unfair in a lot of ways. i was told this is a release/remaster of 2025. this game is **** so much to the point i have to warn those who think its a good starting point. DONT!! this game will chew you up and make you hate the game series.
ive been told and what i saw from other reviews that other games like EDF insect Armageddon and Iron rain is far better if you wanna try the series. hell looks like EDF 5 looks better as a starting point. but this game the devs should feel ashamed for what they did to EDF 4.1 just a waste of a remaster.
holy **** how did this get good reviews? I bought this game because most reviews said it was a good entry. Ive beaten 2 other earth defense games, they were amazing. I could not beat eve the second stage on this game. The weapons system? terrible. The classes? unbalanced as all hell. In fact most of them are useless. graphics are crap. controls haven't improved. reload system has changed for the worse. gameplay features have actually been taken out? This is the worst video game sequel Iv'e ever played, nothing like insect arm. Worst 60$ game ive ever bought in my life.
SummaryThe sci-fi action of the EDF series comes to the PlayStation4 for the first time in this reimagining of Earth Defense Force 2025, now with improved framerates and graphics, and over 50% new content. After selecting from one of four unique playable classes and customizing their weapons, players lead NPC troops into city-wide battles again...
