The wild sci-fi action of the "EDF" series comes to the PlayStation4 for the first time in this complete reimagining of Earth Defense Force 2025, now with silky smooth framerates, beefed up graphics, and over 50% new content. After selecting from one of four unique playable classes and customizing their weapons, players will lead NPC troops into city-wide battles against hordes of seemingly endless giant bugs, robots, and other colossal enemies. Two players can enjoy local co-op and versus modes, while online co-op supports up to four players to increase the odds against a massive swarm of enemies.

EDF 4.1 is a mission based game, you do 1 mention at a time. Choose between 1 of 5 difficulties, and 1 of 4 characters (soldier, mechanical winged woman, Heavy Armored Tank-ish guy, and another soldier type that calls in air attacks and tanks instead of using the weapons the standard soldier uses.) The story is about "Aliens" sort of teaming up or working together with giant insects, to take over or destroy the Earth. Of course!
There are 70 or so missions. Each in varying locations, such as giant cities, beaches, underground tunnels, empty desert lands, allover the place. During missions you have a giant open world map to run around blowing up everything while trying to destory the aliens and insects. You will work with CPU controlled military, that you can somewhat control, by pointing them towards a target you want them to focus on. As you kill enemies you will receive health, weapons, or armor. To level your character as you play the game.
The gameplay and graphics are not amazing. They aren't bad either, but the story and commentary from fellow soldiers is hilarious and unlike any thing else. It is a 3rd person action shooter, with tons of absurd weapons, lots of laser guns and RPG type of weapons.
1 of the best features is multiplayer, you can play split screen with a friend, or online with 3 friends. As you play through the story to build up your arsenal of weapons and armor.
It isn't a bad game, but just make sure you understand what you are buying, before you purchase it. Good luck soldier!
This game is great fun, and can be played split screen co-op with a friend, or up to 4 players online.
The gameplay pits you and your friends up against massive armies of enemies, gives you (in most cases) infinite ammo, and sets you loosee. It seema mindless, yes, but as the difficulty increases you will have to plan which weapons you take into battle in order to defeat the enemies.
I'm a bit biased since Earth Defense Force 2017 for the 360 was one of my favorite games, but I think this is just about as perfect as an EDF game can get.
In short, if you like killing giant insects, and if you like explosions, then this is the game for you.
Way over 80 levels to defeat in single player mode. There is also Online play as well as co-op.
Each level has four unique classes, each with their own weapons. You have the standard soldier class which uses machine guns and explosives then there is the wing diver class incorporating an airborne assault trooper who relies on energy to power weapons and the wing suit; the air raider, which is a specialized class able to summon vehicles, air strikes and force shields; and a fencer, the games heavy class equipped with shields, gatling guns and spears. Each available class truly does provide a unique element to the gameplay, with completely different tactics and strengths.
With all these bugs on the screen you would expect maybe some frame rate issues BUT running at 1080p 60fps there wasn’t a single time where I experienced lag or a frame rate drop.
Now the negatives.....Not the best in voice acting and alot of the dialog is repetitive.
This game does not have alot of DEPTH to it but you do get alot of insect extermination!!!!!!
Bugs BE gone!
This game rocks. It supports 4 MP and 2 Co-op. I played Solo.
There are many missions, and you can go back and do any mission you want to. It is also possible to select any difficulty setting for any mission.
Graphics are great and sound is also. The English voice actors were good I thought.
As you play through the missions, the war rages and you get updates on other parts of the battle.
Having the right weapon set is important. I played a Ranger all the way through, and always carried a rifle. Other weapons I liked were rockets and sniper guns. I tried the shotguns, grenade launchers, special weapons and missiles. There are tons of weapons to find in the game.
Defeated enemies drop armor for health upgrades, weapon boxes that have new weapons in them and health boxes (2 sizes). I discovered that health boxes can heal your team even if your soldier is fully healed.
When you fight a battle, there are usually other EDF personnel that will support you. Some of the battles were huge! Tanks and artillery guns support.
Most of the flying enemies are easy to hit. And the bugs are fun to fight. There are many missions until the end.
EDF 4.1 is a really good game.
