4.0 out of 5 stars The EDF Needs You! August 10, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It's rare that a game gets panned and, upon reading about it, I realize it's the perfect game for me. Earth Defense Force (EDF) 2017 is a bit of a clunker, with unrealistic physics, repetitive enemies, and a terrible vehicle mechanic. Folks accustomed to the first-person smoothness of Halo or the gritty action of Gears of War would most certainly turn up their nose at EDF.

But I loved every single level of it.

You've probably guessed what the plot is: flying saucers invade and deposit hordes of giant ants, spiders, robots, and Godzillas--sorry, "Dino-mechs"--onto the Earth's surface in an attempt to take over the word, Independence Day-style. You are Storm 1, EDF's premiere ground soldier. You and a bunch of your hapless fellow soldiers are tasked with repelling alien invaders several times your size with nothing but handheld weapons. Remember Starship Troopers? It's like that.

With apologies to Winston Churchill: You fight on the seas and oceans, you fight in the air, you defend your planet, whatever the cost may be. You fight on the beaches, you fight on the landing grounds, you fight in the fields and in the streets, you fight in the hills...and you never, ever surrender. From Aliens-style bug hunts in cramped tunnels to bitter Children of Men-style warfare in ruined cities, EDF drops you into every environment imaginable, puts a gun in your hands, points you at a giant monster and asks you to take it on mano-a-giant monstero.

The enemies are glorious to behold. The giant robots are 1950s style automatons reminiscent of the Iron Giant, clunking their way through city streets with gigantic beam weapons, one eye, and weird rope-like limbs. The giant dinosaurs breathe atomic fire and smash through buildings and troops.

5.0 out of 5 stars WoW! Intense Addictive FPS - Escapism at $20 March 15, 2008
Verified Purchase
Bought this based upon reviews on Amazon and thought what the hell $20. Yes, it seems to be brainless shoot-em up in the mode of Serious Sam somewhat which I'm a fan of but damn is this thing addictive. It starts out sort of Starship Troopers corny and seems damn is this easy but damn does it build level by level. The intensity of the Hardest/Inferno levels are amazing and the vibrations on the controller so extreme the controller is about to pop out of my hands.

As others have noted this doesn't pretend to be an RPG beauty combat game but you best use some strategy as the game progresses the intensity levels are extreme. In some levels the difference between Hardest and Inferno are quite dramatic. Also, the destructibility of the surroundings is amazing while you battle and the scope and vastness of enemies are. Oh well, if you need safe escapism for a cheap $20 this is the ticket IMO.

I finished Halo3 on Legendary several times but this is a totally different creature again in the mode of the Serious Sam series IMO. Fun as hell in it's own way. I've bought so many games that sucked it's wonderful when you come across sleepers you've never heard of before.

As a follow-up --- Completed at 100% levels three times and 100% weapons (171) and no second controller cheating.

TIPS ---

Do your harvesting of stamina on Level 52 "Inferno" at "normal" which is easy but the quickest way to farm stamina - follow-up TIP if you don't do second controller cheating.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Funnest Experiences on the 360 February 10, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Earth Defense Force 2017 is definitely not going to win any major video game awards. The graphics are clunky, physics are off, and it suffers from some insufferable slowdowns at times. But besides those flaws, it's by far one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had with my 360.

The game is essentially a battle between the Earth Defense Force and an alien army of bugs and robots. It's a button mashing blast. One of the best parts of the game is that it isn't easy. Many of the levels require a sound strategy and you'll have to pick your weapons wisely. It's a tough game to beat without a friend playing alongside you.

Longevity is not a problem either. You can easily login over 100 hours trying to beat all the boards on each level. You'll want to do this to acquire all of the many unique weapons. Many of the levels are fun enough that you'll play them over and over. The ultimate goal is to receive the crown jewel of weapons, the Genocide gun.

At its current price, this is a must buy. The game seems extremely cheesey and it is. But you'll find yourself one of the true hidden gems on the 360.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best co-op experience I've ever had. June 2, 2011
By Mollip
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I said it. Meant it. Put aside concerns about graphics or depth of gameplay, because this sleeper hit is an absolute blast. It's simple: Two guys, a crew of wise-cracking AI soldiers, constant weapon upgrades made charming by how random they are (you pick up generic upgrade packs then find out what they gave you when the mission is over), and wave after wave of insects, with a few giant monsters thrown in. The weapons aren't amazing but they're varied and clever, such as my favorite: the Tortoise missile. It's basically a homing cruise missile packing ridiculous power, traveling slightly faster than you can run. Just fire one and watch it slowly travel across the sky to whatever target it feels like destroying. Each player chooses a set of two weapons prior to level starting, so it's fun to organize weaponry for max effect.

On Easy setting, the game is frantic and challenging enough to still be fun. On the harder levels it gets INSANE. Item rewards scale with difficulty, so it's fun to play a level several times through, escalating the difficulty until you gathered enough upgrades. I don't know how people do it at the hardest setting.

Only con I can think of is the vehicles. They're utterly worthless. But they're optional so you can just ignore them.

Bear in mind you HAVE to play this co-op to really appreciate it. Grab some snacks.

Replayability: High. This may seem odd because it's the same thing every time, but there are so many weapon upgrades that you couldn't possibly get them all on one play through, and you'll need them in order to play the levels at higher difficulty (you keep all your upgrades even when replaying levels). Plus the game is so fun we found ourselves playing many of the levels over and over again for laughs.
