    This is a very fun shooter game. There is four character classes to choose from, lots of weapons, vehicles, and blowing up all the environments and huge bugs are a blast to do. There's local co-op split-screen play or with 3 other players for online missions. Game loads fast. Graphics are nothing special, a little buggy and choppy at times, but decent and crisp enough.

      It'd a really fun fame about killing bugs to Dave the world. Has 2 player split screen, or 4 player online. It's a fun game that give you and your friends a common goal.

          Comments about XSEED 1008701 Earth Defense Force 4.1 : The Shadow of New Despair for Sony PS4:

          First things first, if you're looking for a triple-a production (Uncharted 4, etc), go somewhere else. Also, keep in mind that this actually a remake of EDF 2025 which game out a few years ago for the Xbox 360 and the PS3. If you're a fan of the EDF games, BUY THIS NOW!

          For people that are unfamiliar with this series, EDF games boil down to shooting up waves of 50's sci-fi tropes (giant bugs, cheesy robots, flying saucers, etc). This game series also a huge throw back to the days of 16 bit action games in the regard that every level basically plays out the same. While this may sound repetitious, it can be a load of fun in short bursts and especially during couch co-op. As far as the gameplay itself goes, you have 4 character classes to choose from, and to a degree they do play differently, but remember every level is basically run and gun. This takes place in a third person perspective from behind your character. You can only carry two weapons at a time, which you select before beginning the stage. This leads to an element of strategy because once you enter the stage you can't change weapons (there are not pick-ups). As you mow down the enemies they'll drop new gear that can be used once you complete the current stage. The gear drops based on RNG and difficulty selected, so if you're trying to get all the weapons it can definitely be a time sink. As far as performance goes, the game is ok. While there is no screen tearing that I've noticed, the frame rate does fluctuate. It's never hit sub-30fps for me, but the constant 40-60fps can be a bit jarring. My only other minor complaint is that I would have like an option to retain the green enemy blood (as opposed to red in this game) that was used in EDF 2017, it definitely went better with the cheese-fest atmosphere. Overall, I'd recommend this game for people looking for a good time waster or something to play couch co-op at get togethers.

            Yes, it's basically the same setting as the previous games. However, those who love the EDF series is why the game still hold its charm. If you love the old campy giant monster movies of the 60's and 70's then you should give this game a shot.

              As a longtime fan of the series, i love this game. Sure it's cheesy, and the graphics aren't the best, but what do you really want out of a game? I want it to be fun, and this game is extremely fun. For some reason, i don't get tired of shooting alien insects and robots, recommended.
