Earth Defense Force 2025 Review - The Digital Fix

On the face of it, there are a lot of similarities between Earth Defense Force 2025 and our own English Defence League. It’s violent, stuck in the past, filled with idiotic characters and repeatedly yells incoherent nonsense at you. Yet here the comparisons end, as EDF takes a leaf - or, more truthfully, several handfuls of pages - out of Heinlein’s Starship Troopers and takes aim at Giant Insects which are plotting to take over the world. Yes, Giant Insects. You’ll hear that a lot in EDF, as it seems a spectacular lack of creativity in the naming department appears to have escalated it to a proper noun, even if some of the Insects are in fact arachnids, or other things containing more than six legs. But let’s gloss over that. (Earth Defense Force 2025, PS3, Xbox 360) 5/10
