It’s not unusual for a console to receive ports of other games early in its life cycle. What makes Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable unique is which system it came from; what started off as 2007 Xbox 360 exclusive has migrated, in 2013, to Sony’s flagship handheld: the PlayStation Vita. Bringing with it a completely new character, new weapons, and ad-hoc multiplayer, EDF 2017 Portable is a mixed bag of content. This is by far one of the most unpolished, buggy, and poor looking games on the PlayStation Vita, yet at the same time, there’s no other experience like this on the market. Despite all of its bugs (pun most definitely intended), EDF 2017 Portable can be a fun, enjoyable experience. Sometimes.
