What do these ratings mean?

The Good: Does a good job being a bad game, completely destructible environments, tons of massive enemies, two player mode is a blast

The Bad: Down right laughable voice acting and story, gets extremely repetitive after the first 5 levels, no online play, lame achievements

EDF is a bad game. Yet it's a very well done bad game. The game has bad graphics, cheesy voice acting, a dumb story, repetitive action, lame achievements (only 5 for completing the game on each difficulty), but does it right.

            What makes the game enjoyable are the thousands of giant ants you fight in each level, entirely destructible environments, and some strategy needed to play the game. You go into each of the 56 missions with only two weapons, and this is where the strategy comes in. If you have other EDFs with you you might want to take an assault rifle and a rocket launcher so you don't kill them. If you have tons and tons of ants instead of just tons you can bring a grenade launcher to do massive damage, and when I mean massive I mean MASSIVE.

            Everything in this game is over exaggerated. You can shoot down sky scrapers with one rocket launcher and watch them tumble, take out a whole UFO with just a few bullets. This makes the game both funny and enjoyable. Thanks to many weapons in the game and the two player mode you'll have hours of non stop fun. The game is a technical feat, though, with the thousands of massive enemies and smoke effects, and ginormous UFOs without much slowdown. So if you want some mindless fun join the EDF and be happy.
