Fun bug killing action! Can't go wrong with this game, especially with friends!
Reminds me of playing games in the old days, simple and fun to play! The new suits are great and add alot of different gameplay.
Just don't pick this up expecting an epic story, this is arcade shooting at its finest and its with friends! Love the online co op and local 2 player co op. The number of missions are small but they get longer in length and the different suits add some replay value. I do miss the dino bosses from 2017 but this one still has some cool ones. If you have played EDF before you know exactly what you are getting in this game. The city streets get real repetitive but you'll be doing too much running and shooting to care.
If you always wondered what it would be like to join up with your friends and defend earth from an alien bug invasion then look no further! This game is a blast!
EDF: Insect Armageddon is a game that was made for nothing other than the enjoyment of killing every single bug that appears on screen. The game is very light on story and the sound can get frustrating in that in breaks and makes weird noises. The game is fun on its own but when you either play split-screen or go online, its a whole different game. There is something about killing bugs with your friends that has an un-ending joy to it. The game offers plenty of replay value and the grind that it takes to fully level up each armor type is not a grind at all, it is actually enjoyable and it gives you an excuse to play through the wonderfully joyful campaign and online again and again. I give this game a 8/10 on pure fun alone.

the game play is super fun, its also not the same thing over and over. some missions let you use walkers, tanks, stationary turrets. the online coop is my biggest issue with the game. you cannot host your own game which means that if the random host decides to leave you loose all your progress which is total bs and gives me head aches cause its not a super rare occurrence. single player would of been more fun if the ai didnt bunch up around you cause if u get killed everybody dies and u have to restart the level. this game doesn't have host migration so your loose all your progress in the mission if they decide they got something better to do. im hoping they fix these issues with the game i was going buy it im glad i rented it before spending 30 dollars cause if they dont got some quick fixes in the near future ill just put it back in my mail box bottom line its fun but frustrating
