What starts life looking like a repetitive experience soon becomes addictive, add the welcoming online community and you have a game which will keep you going for many hours.

Revenu du passé, ce jeu de niche ne parlera toujours qu'à une minorité de joueurs avertis, tandis que les autres le qualifieront probablement de honte vidéoludique. Nanar de pixels assumé, bouillie technique d'effets cheap, Earth Defense Force 2017 n'en reste pas moins un titre d'action fun et exigeant. Pour ne rien gâcher, le jeu est désormais soutenu par des options multijoueurs en ligne, ce qui ne manquera pas de ravir les aficionados.

EDF is a decent game that will give you some enjoyment for a few hours, and as long as you don’t mind the repetitiveness of the missions, there’s just enough story here to make you interested in finding out how it all shakes out. However, the simple and repetitive nature of the game means you’ll probably only play it once, beat it, and then forget about it, because there is no reason to go through it all again, even on a harder difficulty level or multiplayer, which is just the same missions with human players instead of AI. For all that, I would still have recommended this game, because if you’re just looking for a game that’ll give you a good weekend of fun, it has that capability. However, I do find the $39.99 price tag on PSN a little steep given the complete lack of depth and long-term playability. I’d wait for this one to hit the bargain bin.

Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable is a strong Vita port of the Xbox 360 original that adds in solid new content and online play while retaining all the charm of the original, and while it’s not the most slick game and fans of the original may find it a bit of a retread, it’s still a pretty good game overall.
