    Silly magazines - this is great stuff

    When I dreamed of the next generation of games, I dreamed of two things. Firstly there was the idea of truly open, involving games. Games that let you walk through any door, talk to any character, go ...

    Before you read this review, I should probably tell you that this game was originally released in Japan, so a lot of the game isn’t going to make any sense, but that’s ok. Anyhow…Are you bored of Lost...

    Earth Defence Force 2017 will give you plenty of bug-blasting bang for your buck.

    E.D.F is throwback to the arcade days, though a mediocre one at that.<br /> (contains spoilers)

    Kinda dumb fun never the less

    Rated on May 13, 2007 by Megavideogamer

    This game is a blast to play, shoot the hell out of everything simple enough. Destroy the giant ants,Robots,spaceships and the odd Dina-mech. This type of gameplay is good for zoning out, for a couple...

    Despite reeking of a budget title, EDF 2017 is a ton of mindless fun.

    Rated on May 13, 2007 by drswank

    EDF is ugly, budget, clunky, dated, cheesy, and ridiculous. However, it gets one important element right: it's fun.

    Earth Defense Force 2017, developed by Sandlot and published by D3, is a clumsy, ugly, messy, and in some ways disgraceful third person shooter for the Xbox 360, but despite all its flaws, it still de...
