Über das Spiel

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon spielt im fiktiven New Detroit, erscheint für Xbox 360 und PlayStation 3 ist ein komplette Neuentwicklung der Entwickler von Vicious Cycle. Insect Armageddon nimmt das Konzept von Earth Defense Force 2017 und setzt die spannende Geschichte rund um das spaßige Gameplay fort.

Insect Armageddon fügt der Reihe neue Spielmöglichkeiten hinzu. Die Spieler können im Kampagnenmodus für bis zu drei Spieler online oder zu zweit im Split-Screen Aliens in einer komplett zerstörbaren Stadt bekämpfen. Jeder EDF Soldat kann über 300 Waffen sammeln und zwischen vier aufrüstbaren Rüstungssets, inklusive einer Jet-Rüstung für Kämpfe auf dem Boden und in der Luft, wählen. Die Spieler kämpfen in einer erstklassigen Arcarde-Action gegen einen scheinbar unaufhaltbaren Schwarm von Insekten und gigantischen Alien-Invasoren.

Zusätzlich bietet das Spiel einen Survivalmodus für sechs Spieler, die sich als Team gegen einen unaufhörlichen Ansturm der größten Gegner wehren müssen, die die Aliens zu bieten haben. Das gigantische Ungezieferproblem in New Detroit kann nur durch die Earth Defense Force – die letzte Hoffnung der Menschheit – gelöst werden. Auch wenn die Stadt dafür komplett in Schutt und Asche gelegt werden muss.

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon ist ein völlig absurder Third-Person Shooter bei dem man ein Sondereinsatzkommande zur Rettung der Erde gegen riesige Killerinsekten und Roboter in die Schlacht führt! Ein Spiel das sich selbst auf keinen Fall ernst nimmt und genauso muss man auch als Spieler rangehen, wenn man Spaß haben will.
Ich habe mir das Spiel wegen des Fun-Faktors im CoOp Modus geholt.
Nachdem wir es innerhalb von 20h aber merhmals durchgespielt haben, ist so langsam die Luft raus.
Die Grafik ist ziemlich schlecht, aber wem das egal ist und wer ein paar Kumpels in petto hat, der sollte auf einen Sale warten und zuschlagen.

Preisempfehlung: 5€ inkl. DLC's

Dieses Spiel ist genau das, wonach es aussieht:

Ein Trashiger Shooter indem man mit endloser Munition gegen eine Invasion von Rieseninsekten kämpft und das solange, bis kein Insektenbein mehr zuckt und die ganze Stadt (höchstwahrscheinlich) in Trümmern liegt. Kollateralschäden bleiben nunmal nicht aus, wenn die EDF anrückt!

[h1]Klassen[/h1]
Zur Verfügung stehen 4 verschiedene Klassen, jede mit anderen Fähigkeiten und Vor- und Nachteilen.
  • Trooper - Standardklasse ohne spezielle Fähigkeiten dafür in allem anderen sehr gut
  • Tactical - Kann Türme, Minen oder ein Radar aufstellen
  • Battle - Langsam aber tödlich und schwer gepanzert, kann einen Schild benutzen um schweren Schaden zu vermeiden, Elektroschocks abgeben und eine kleine Schockwelle erzeugen
  • Jet - Benutzt Energiewaffen und kann auf Kosten der Waffenenergie fliegen, ist die Energie leer kann nicht nachgeladen werden, bis diese wieder aufgeladen ist


[h1]Modi[/h1]
  • KampangeDie Kampange ist zwar relativ schnell durchgespielt, bietet aber dennnoch einen gewissen Reiz, da nach jeder Mission neue Waffen gefunden werden, mit denen man auch die härteren Schwierigkeitsgrade schaffen kann (um dort bessere Waffen freizuschalten etc... xD)
  • Survival
  • Im Survival-Modus kämpft man gegen endlose Wellen von Gegnerscharen
  • Campaign-Remix
  • Hier spielt man die Kampangenmissionen nochmal aber die Gegner und Bosse werden zufällig ausgewählt, um für etwas Abwechslung zu sorgen.


An den Errungenschaften merkt man schnell, worauf das ganze abzielt... Tausende und Abertausende von Invasoren zu vernichten!

Also schnappt euch eure Freunde und zieht in den Krieg gegen Ameisen, Spinnen, Wespen, Zecken, Rieseroboter und mehr!

Ich hoffe, das in Zukunft noch weitere EDF-Teile ihren Weg hierher finden und es nicht nur bei diesem einen Ableger bleibt!

⚠️ READ TO THE END. IMPORTANT INFORMATION⚠️

It's a great game. You run around a city blasting giant bugs, a lot of giant bugs, and you can choose different classes with different weapons and abilities to take on the bug scourge. Now for the bad part. If you have a modern system, running Windows 10, you can NOT launch this game. There are exceptions with Windows 10 N systems (this is from my research to try and get this awesome game to work again) where you can install the media feature pack from Microsoft to circumvent what ever prevents the game from working. I am currently contacting the publisher to get them to fix this. I implore STEAM to do the same, as they are currently selling a game that doesn't work on current OS systems and I wish to continue to play this game; so they have an obligation to get this game going again...

[h1]IN A WORD: MAYBE [/h1]

[h1]BITESIZE:[/h1]
Zitat:

OF A SIMILAR NATURE TO:
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Third-person shooter. Japanese disaster movie setting. Titanic battles vs arachnid style aliens. Starship Troopers feel. Limited campaign with short missions. Survival and dynamic campaign+ extend play. Dated but passable graphics. Really good soundtrack. Fun but repetitive gameplay. Only four classes. Tons of unlockable weapons with some variation. Average voice-acting. Very grindy achievements. Badly designed survival mode which no one playing. Very slow levelling.
ACHIEVEMENTS: VERY GRINDY.
STATUS: COMPLETE.
WHEN TO BUY: DEPENDS ON EXPECTATIONS.


More info below....

[h1]THE LOWDOWN:[/h1]
Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon is a 3rd person shooter with optional coop play. Set in a disaster movie-esque setting the ambience is reminscient of Starship Troopers and Japanese disaster movies. Up to three players choose a soldier class traverse large city maps and undertake one of fifteen missions consisting of a number of sequential objectives. Arrayed against them are hordes of enemies resembling the arachnic foes of Starship Troopers and numerous large alien boss types with a range of technologically advanced weapons.

Mission objectives consist of shooting hordes and bosses, destroying spawn points, sabotaging downed aircraft and reaching an objective point. Instructions are relayed by voiceactors which do a basic job of revealing what little backstory there is to be found.

The core component of this game is gun and run combat with healthpacks dropped with the death of certain aliens. Other player or AI allies can revive downed allies. Killing bosses sometimes drop weapon schematics that unlock new weapons. Otherwise players levelup with the XP they receive from completing missions. Levelling unlocks weapons, while credits earned allow new weapons to be purchased without schematics. During some sequences players get to shoot aliens using weapons from gunships or climb into tanks, mechs or weapon emplacements to kill more aliens.

[h1]THE GOOD:[/h1]
+ Good implementation of disaster movie concept in a video-game.
+ Good Starship Trooper-esque setting/atmosphere.
+ Well-made large-scale titanic battles versus a good assortment of arachnic style enemes.
+ Rudementary but fun gun and run gameplay.
+ Campaign+ and Wave Survival modes with dynamic spawning provide some game longevity.
+ Nice variety of aliens.
+ Usuable gun emplacements and military vehicles. Turrets, tanks and mechs can be equipped by players.
+ Destructable environments.
+ Great soundtrack. A perfect fit.
+ In-game stats and achievement progress.
+ Enemies can lob vehicles at players.
+ Missions can be played out of sequence or to farm kills once beaten.

[h1]THE BAD:[/h1]
- Needs more of everything really. More perks/classes. I.e No healing class. More enemies. More weapons. More missions.
- Very average voice-acting. Sounds wooden and monotone.
- Bullet sponge bosses.
- Can die out-of-bounds where AI teammates are unable to revive player. Requires mission restart.
- Rare critter spawning out-of-bounds. Requires jet class to get them. Otherwise mission restart again!
- Needs alot more missions and chapters.
- Badly needs damage indicators. Either a health bar or visual damage prompts.
- Very grindy achievements.
- Gunship segments could have been implemented alot better.
- Lacks command menu to issue orders to AI allies.
- Coop scoring doesnt included shared kills.
- Poorly designed, balanced survival mode. Limited offshoot of the core gain.

[h1]AND THE ORDINARY:[/h1]
* Decent albeit dated graphics.
* Narratively fine but let down by the voice-acting.
* Well designed missions with several fairly varied stages/objectives.
* Lots of weapons that require unlocking, seven levels across five categories. Most have little differences.
* Limited combat mechanics. Perhaps just enough.
* Competant AI. Doesnt show allies attacking large enemies. Useless with vehicles. Can revive each other and player.
* Adequate mission completion tracking.

[h1]VERDICT:[/h1]
Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon is a fairly average third-person horde shooter. It reminds me of marmite, you will either like it or not. Gameplay switches between feeling fun or a braindead button-bashing experience. The best features are the apocalyptic ambience and destructable environment. These feel like you're in a Japanese style disaster movie. The epic battles with gigantic bosses and alien hordes make you feel like you are taking part in one. The soundtrack adds to the titanic struggle feeling to overcome the enemy horde.

Playing solo is okay but coop is better. Despite the short campaign length, the lack of objective variations in missions results in gameplay that can be described as at best repetitive and at worst shallow. The dated graphics are actually quite passable even if the experience descends to one of constant button-bashing. It can be fun at times but I found it to get old fast. Button bashing for short bursts is okay but doing it for the entire mission just feels very repetitive. Add to this the design of all gamemodes it adds up to a very, very grindy experience. Something that is amplified by the nature of the achievements.

The game could definitely do with more class types. There are alot of weapons but most of them feel underwhelming and once you find the perfect ones for your style of play you rarely change them except when you level-up. At least then the AI is competent for both the enemy and friendly AI. Allies come to revive you. They jump into vehicles and weapon emplacements when available. They also help take down the large bosses while keeping enemy hordes at bay. The enemy AI works a treat focusing on killing players and their AI comrades. They keep moving to avoid being sitting ducks. They also jump onto players to trap them and damage them with bites. Impressively they also throw vehicles at players in order to crush them prone. While I experienced no crashes, there were a few missions where bugs would spawn out-of-bounds and could not be killed and the mission had to be restarted but, only a few.

There have been times I have enjoyed playing Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon and others when Ive hated the monotony of it. Fans of Starship Troopers and Japanese style disaster movies may find it appealing. As anyone who likes simple, repetitive gameplay. Enjoys button-bashing combat. Gains satisfaction from tearing down city landscapes or enjoys constant mindless destruction. Especially if they dont mind dated graphics from what is an old console port. If thats you then this could be a cheap introduction into this franchise when on sale. What could have been a solid recommendation turns into a MAYBE. Maybe if this is played occasionally rather than in long stretches anyone interested in playing this game may get the best out of it.

Mostly played on PS3 around the time of release but when I switched over to PC gaming I couldn't resist picking this up a second time. I admittedly played a lot less on PC, still all the gameplay elements are the same.

As with other EDF games the action is fun and frantic, expect to be swarmed by more enemies than you can count and expect explosions going off everywhere at the same time. Best experienced with a friend in couch co-op but I played most of this one solo and still had fun. Having a friend pop in for missions was just a bonus.

The EDF games are generally pretty fun, and i was hesitant to replay this game again. Its EDF in name, but a lot of what was fun about 2017 (as its the game before this one) is lost here. There's only 15 missions and not only do they all look kinda the same, they all kinda feel the same...and I never really felt that way playing the other games. Run here, kill some enemies, hit a beacon, run over there, rinse and repeat a few times level after level, it felt all too similar. Every other EDF game had stages where youd defend a beachfront or destroy a certain number of X enemies, but here its like they just threw everything in every level and ran with it and it shows.

Another thing is that this game looked better than 2017, but at the cost of drastically reducing the number of enemies on screen which hurts it a bit. It ran ok on 360, but thankfully it runs much smoother on PC, and with an unofficial 60fps patch its miles better than the console version ever could be.

Granted, I did pick this one up again on PC because it was 99 cents at the time so i couldnt resist, but all in all its a basic but underwhelming game. And with 4.1 out, there's much better options out there anyway. Only play this one if you can grab it at a huge discount and have some buddies to play with, otherwise just go straight to EDF 4.1.

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon gives off b-movie vibes by featuring big ants and other animals that are attacking America. As a part of the Earth Defense Force (EDF), you can choose between several classes, a big variety of weapons and unlock many more. There isn't a lot of story, but the game has funny banter between the mission commander, the intelligence officer and a pilot. The biggest flaw this game has is that it takes so long to level up in order to unlock the strongest weapons. You can either play alone, with two bots or with two friends.

Recommended to anyone who likes shooters, a coop game and the unique setting.

Bought this game luckily on a sale as I love the edf mainline franchise like 4.1 and 5.

Also as there is no neutral option I feel I dislike it slightly more then like it, but the game is well playable.

I knew going in that this game would play differently and was looking if I liked it just to know the spinoff series.

Sadly the areas feel too small and one just moves from moshpit to moshpit taking out a cluster of enemies.

The guns also feel too lackluster compared to edf 4.1 and 5 and it feels like the weapons do little to no damage and then suddenly an enemy dies.

The AI helps out from time to time which is nice even tho they are not the smartest bunch but at least they help out a bit.

I love the enemy designs and how stuff looks, but it just feels like a small arena shooter instead of fighting in a city like the mainline franchise does. There is no real feeling of urgency or the feeling of a greater world war, just a small conflict in a city, rince and repeat.

If one gets this game on sale, fun can be had, but I feel it is lacking and if looking for an edf game to start with get edf 5 or 4.1 instead.
