Ken McKown Writes: There are some games that defy traditional criticism. By all accounts, the Earth Defense Force series fails on almost every level. The games look like last-gen titles, they are mindless and repetitive and lack any sort of polish when it comes to presentation. Still, for some reason, the most recent entry in the series, Insect Armageddon, is massively appealing and a ton of fun to play. Perhaps it stems from the fact that the developers know the game is what it is and never try to force it to be something that it’s not. Either way, Insect Armageddon throws in a few bells and whistles making it my favorite game in the series so far.
