EDF is a game that most people haven't even heard of so i thought i would post a thread about it to maybe get people interested... hopefully, lol.

PS: the name "Nungus" (as seen in the title of this thread) is a name of one of the weapons and has been a running joke among my group of co-op partners for this game (skidmarkgn and andremal).

This game has a tall order for its platinum and will take many hours (unknown at this point how many)

I was looking into this, I know it's not a AAA title, but makes up for it with humor and action.

Zairozen- Wow, he can hold his beer as well (Sammy adams). *Applaud* I underestimated you, SteelSatan.

its one of those games where it just looks "meh" but once you start killing bug after bug it gets very addictive... plus the crazy weapons and stuff... This game wont go in the video game hall of fame or anything but usually everyone who gets there hands on this title gets addicted to killing bugs...

I sort of remember reading about this in GameInformer, I think it was in a section going through all the good recent coop games.

How's the coop in this? (unless I'm mistaken and it has none lol)

Interesting. I might need to pass this information along to my brother then, he's always looking for a good coop game to play on Friday nights. Is it local coop? If so, how many players at a time?

1st EDF was Xbox only, if there was a petition to get it ported I'd sign that sum' bitch twice!! Funny thing is I'm pretty sure the 1st EDF was local co-op only though...

Insect Armageddon's only real flaw in my eyes is a lack of bosses, there's plenty of giant creatures but I only consider one of them an actual boss. When you're fighting giant bugs and robots the potential for epic bosses is through the roof and they didn't really capitalize on it.

Beyond that, it's a budget title ($40 dollars new on day 1) with online co-op that focuses wholesale on fun factor. The trophies come rapid fire at 1st but the plat. requires a hefty amount of time due to having to max out each of the 4 classes (which takes no less than 12 playthroughs) and having to survive 500 waves of enemies in survival. That being said, you could do a lot LOT worse for $40.

Well technically the first EDF was actually on PS2 and was called Monster Attack in Europe, then the was Global Defence Force / Global Defence Force Tactics then Earth Defence Force 2017 and now Insect Armageddon

Seriously cannot wait till I get this though, so just hope I can get it before Earth Defence Force 4 releases sometime next year (I'm hoping)

I'm bumping this thread in an attempt to gain as much attention for this underappreciated gem as possible. Seriously, if you like games that are all about pure fun give this one a chance!! It's a budget title (albeit a hard to find one) that will easily give you your money's worth in entertainment value. There's 3 player co-op for the campaign and 7 player survival to keep you going for many-an-hour. My buddies and I have been playing it for about a year and we're still having fun.

Iv re-started playing this again. Im very close to reaching rank 8 on my 2nd class. No idea how many hours iv put in so far, but its an awesome game. Shame its been hacked to fuck though as it would be interesting to see how many people actually got the plat legit

I haven't taken the time to actually check but I heard the list is legit now (at least here). I'm getting pretty close to plat and I know Piggie_Pie should be there any day now, we're both only one trophy away. Getting every armor to 8 and the 500 waves of survival take forever but they have NOTHING on buying all the weapons for every armor. So. Much. Grinding.

No chance is it correct. Too many people have plat in 4 hours or a couple of days. It takes 300 hours to plat so your talking a few weeks if you never stopped playing it. Just those with the plat in 2 minutes have been wiped off the leaderbords. I reckon about 50 people have it legit

Someone on my friends list hacked it and are still on the leaderboard. People can change the timestamps so it would be hard to tell, however anyone with the plat knows it takes longer than a few weeks
