Video Game Review: Earth Defense Force 2017

Bought this game for $40 brand new, knowing this was a "B" title.

In short, this game isn't supposed to be that great. But oddly enough, I really liked it. Oh, Gears of War makes it laughable and Rainbow 6 blows it away, but for some reason I'm playing through it a second time. There's a few frustrating moments, but honestly the game is pretty straightforward - shoot stuff until it blows up magnificigantly, then repeat.

The robots are fun, the weapons are really varied (over 160 of them!) and the achievements are nearly impossible. Once you get some of the better weapons - tracking missiles with incredible damage and the like - it really starts to boom. All in all this is a game with average to poor graphics, average to poor controls, average to poor sound, which you would think ends up being somewhere south of average ... but instead is a fun, addictive "B" movie game with some nifty explosions.

Definitely a renter, if you can dedicate the time to beat all 53 levels in a couple of nights. B-

I take it you are giving your 360 a little more attention these days? I was reading his blog (which is humorous) and he seems very alone at times.

Mine would probably sound the same.

The podcast is coming ... DF is finishing a book, so he's disappeared for a while. :)
