What Gamespot Users have to say about Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon

  • User Rating 7

    Not as good as it's predecessor but this budget game is still packed with explosive, yet mindless enjoyment.

    The first Earth Defense Force game I played was EDF 2017 back when I had an Xbox360. It was, and still is, one of the funnest games I have ever played. It didn't have a sweeping story line, the visual...

    Anti-climax of the year

    Finally, the sequel to Earth Defence Force 2017; Insect Armageddon is a good addition to the series but how does it stack up? The only real game to compare with is the super fun EDF:2017 so as I play...

    A game that I had heard a little about and was interested in playing it so this was a rental from Gamefly.. The game puts you in the role as a squadmember of the Earth Defense Force which is tasked in...

    This game is great by itself but it's best when played split screen!

    I play this with a partner and we always can't wait to see what new weapons are unlocked after every level-up. The four different classes of armor are a joy to control. I've played half way through th...

    I didn't know blowing stuff up could be this fun. <br /> A good bug is always a dead bug.<br />

    The first EDF game is like a hidden gem I never played. Low price, massive destruction, overwhelming number of bugs, and big bosses. I was told about it, but I always forgot about it, because of all...

    Its Fun But Only with a friend:)

    Rated on July 15, 2011 by MidNightStrikes

    I bought the game not very long ago, and i played the single-player and tried to co-op with my bro. The graphics is just below normal games u play like (GTA IV) on the PS3. The gameplay is great even ...

    A game where using a wash bucket to rinse and repeat is a clear understatement.

    Rated on July 21, 2011 by SynthR

    Article Summary - Long, but repetitive campaign. - The campaign is significantly shorter than EDF 2017. - Four classes to choose from; each with their own skills and weapon load outs. - Online cap...

    This game is not too bad. It's not to good either. But it will grow on you and it plays nicely.

    "Waypoint up". The bugs come at you, you shoot them and they disintegrate into nothing, You also get to listen to the dialog between useless intel briefer and the helping ops briefer. Haul ass and way...

    Joyful destruction and arcade shooter appeal allow for lighthearted diversion despite a somewhat superficial makeup

    Imagine our planet overrun by gigantic insect and robot enemies only the Earth Defense Force is prepared to confront. In this case, Earth is the fictional city of New Detroit, and the defense body Li...

    A very uninteresting experience from a single player perspective.

    Rated on March 10, 2012 by dead888

    Now I am not sure how the co-operative mode plays, but it's basically what most reviews brag about. As for the single player campaign, that's where this game starts to show how boring and uninspiring ...
