Earth Defense Force 5

Action 11 December 2018

The fifth major installment of the popular Japanese third-person science fiction shooters by Sandlot. The story of Earth Defense Force 5 continues the storyline known from its predecessors. The Earth is attacked by aliens again, and the players, who represent the eponymous organization, have to repel the invasion. Mechanics-wise, the title doesn’t deviate from the typical formula of the series. The action is presented from the third-person perspective. At the heart of the gameplay is elimination of enemies with the use of a varied weapons arsenal. Our targets are, first and foremost, all kinds of oversized insects, and the key to success is to devise the right tactic. For exterminating enemy forces, we are awarded points that can be then spent on various bonuses. Compared to the previous installment of the series, the modernized graphics are a breath of fresh air. Moreover, the enemies on the screen are more numerous than ever before.

Action 26 April 2018

A spin-off of the Earth Defense Force series. It was created and developed by D3 Publisher. Contrary to the main entries in the series, it is a classic shoot’em up. The story of the game takes place a few months after the events presented in Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair. The player controls members of the Pale Team. They are equipped with completely new jetpacks and their task is to eliminate space insects that attacked Earth. The action in Earth Defense Force 4.1: Wingdiver the Shooter is presented from a top-down perspective. The gameplay is focused on combat against hordes of enemies. During the battle the player can use varied weapons and power-ups that increase their combat potential. In addition to regular opponents, the player must face much stronger bosses. The action is also made more interesting thanks to the “Shoot Up Times” – sequences, during which the player stops and fights legions of enemies coming from all directions. The game lacks typical multiplayer mode, but players can compete with each other through online scoreboards.

The game takes place in 2025, when Earth is once again attacked by the insectoid alien invaders. Before we can face them, we have to choose one from a couple of available classes, like the universal infantry soldier, air strike specialist or the heavy arms expert. No matter what class we decide to play as, we have a wide array of weapons at our disposal. Even though we cannot control them directly, tanks, helicopters, and mechs aid us in battle. The game focuses on fighting creatures that look like overgrown ants, hornets, even dragons, or armored vehicles. Along with the single player campaign, Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair offers multiplayer cooperative missions.
