Jermain of RGN writes, "Earth Defense Force 2025, isn’t a beautiful looking game nor is it a technical marvel. It is a budget title and it clearly shows, with its terrible voice acting and buggy frame rate. Despite that the game is fun to play, especially with a group. If you don’t mind the B movie stuff or the $50 price tag (It’s fun but that’s almost AAA game pricing) and want to spend a weekend blasting away your enemies just for the hell of it then Earth Defense Force 2025 is right up your alley. If not, look elsewhere or at least give it a rent."
