Earth Defence Force 2025

Were you to hand a game developer from the late ‘80s a world of 21st century technology and talent, it’s likely they’d make Earth Defence Force. It’s a series about hundreds of guns, millions of giant bugs to fire them at and an entire planet’s worth of skyscrapers to demolish. You’ll love it because, like Contra 3 or Smash TV, it feels great and everything explodes. But those games had five and three levels, respectively, while EDF 2025 repeats that same bit of dizzying violence for 85 levels.
