"Stay clear, the whole game is crap"
1 stars"

Played this game and is actually rubbish, Crap sound, crap graphics and gameplay is even crap. Stay away from this, would have to be one of the worst Xbox360 games, ever. This game is a real low budget game, with dated graphics and sound. Very dull gameplay and levels don't seem to change that much.

"Big, Stupid, Low-Budget, Hilarious, Fun."
4 stars"

It's no classic but damn it's a lot of cheesy fun. The voice acting is bad, Resident Evil bad. i.e. so bad it's funny. It's a game that knows what it is and doesn't pretend to be anything else: over-the-top stupid fun. Best played with two players but I had a lot of fun on my own. Definitely not for everyone and not for anyone looking for something serious. But if you have the right sense of humour and perhaps if you're an old school style of gamer, you'll appreciate it. (I guess you could say it was a sort of 3D Robotron 2084). The gameplay basically consists of relentless attacks from alien bugs, but there is always a limit to amount of enemies (although that limit may be in the thousands) so there is some room for strategy (knowing when to retreat and which weapons to choose).

Be warned, it can get boring on an easy difficulty so be sure to set it to something that will challenge you or you'll lose interest. The hardest difficulties are near impossible so there's a challenge for anyone who's looking for it.


The Earth Defence Force needs you! Planet Earth is under attack from alien invaders and the Earth Defence Force (EDF) is the only chance for survival. Earth Defence Force 2017 lands players on the front lines of an onslaught of alien invaders with non-stop swarms of hundreds of enemies on screen at once.

The arcade-style third-person shooter equips players with an arsenal of weapons, vehicles and loyal team mates in order to defeat a wide variety of attackers ranging from giant ants and spiders to robots and monsters standing more than 20 stories tall. Players have more than 150 weapon variations to choose from including assault rifles, rocket launches and flamethrowers and the support of AI-controlled Earth Defence Force team mates who will battle beside them throughout the gameplayers can also join forces in co-op mode and battle together.

With more than 50 missions to complete and a seemingly endless barrage of attackers, the Earth Defence Force has their work cut out for them. Fighting within a wholly destructible environment where bridges, skyscrapers and other structures can just as easily be destroyed by friend or foe, players can either save their world or demolish it in the process.

  • Epic Battles Against Hordes of Alien Invaders - Players will face off against a wide variety of attackers ranging from giant ants and spiders to robots and monsters standing more than 20 stories tall. With non-stop swarms of literally hundreds of enemies on screen at once, these chaotic battles are like nothing you have ever played.

  • More than 50 Missions - Engage the enemy in more than 50 all-out battles. Battle alongside your EDF squad through city streets, underground caves, coastal zones and more to repel the alien attackers on all fronts.
  • Military Vehicles at your Command - Take control of battle tanks, armoured mechs, attack helicopters and hover bikes to help complete your mission.
  • No Man Fights Alone - Though the odds may seem impossible, you are not alone. Fighting by your side are your AI controlled EDF team mates. This crew of soldiers will fearlessly charge into battle and assist you throughout the game
  • Team-up for Victory - Join-up with a friend in co-op mode and work together to battle your way through the alien swarms.
