Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule

Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

What do these ratings mean?

Do not buy Earth Defense Force 2017 (EDF) if you are expecting another triple A game like Halo

or Oblivion. However you should get EDF is you want some of the most fun and addicting

gameplay since the original Serious Sam.

Gameplay

The game plays as the most basic third person shooter it can possibly be. There are only three

buttons you will be pressing. Right trigger is shoot, left trigger is jump, and right bumper is 

change weapons. Thats it. The game places you in the roll of some no name grunt who is in

the EDF. Before each of the 50+ levels you get to choose two weapons. Choosing weapons is

actually very stratigic because some guns won't work as well as others on certains enemies.

Eventually you can choose from 150 different weapons. The goal of the levels are to kill

everything that moves, some are easy (one wave of enemies) to really hard (destroying nests

that the giant bugs climb out of).  This is a very epic game. There are twenty foot ants climbing

on buildings  while fifty foot robots destroy buildings with their plasma cannons. The game can

get pretty overwelming when you are surrounded be giant spiders trying to kill you.

The best part about this game is two player co-op play. You and a buddy can destroy every

thing in your path and its a whole lot of fun. The vehicles dont work very well (except the

tank) but you wont have to go into a vehicle in the entire game. When you kill enemies they

drop 2D pickups such as health,armor,and new weapons. The weapons add up to your 150,

so you will be constently searching for them.

 

Graphics

EDF is not the most beautiful game out there, but the graphics are great. The details of the

robots and dinosaurs are amazing. One of my favorite things about EDF is when you blow

up a robot, more will emerge from the fire. This effect is truely epic, and makes the game

fun. There are some bad effects. When a spider shoots its web it is very blocky and not very

web-like. When you blow up a building, it starts to fall, but then disapears.

 

Overall

+Fifty plus epic levels

+150 weapons

+Co-op

- Can get ugly when enemies surround you
