EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: WORLD BROTHERS is one of those games that came out of nowhere for me! I am a huge fan of this series and have been since the first game. They may not be what you would class as a “masterpiece”, however, these are games that I have had a great time with over the years and it was so cool to see this one that is keeping the soul of the game alive, but changing up the visual presentation considerably.
Square Earth Is Shattered!
If you have never played one of these games before, let me give you a bit of a back story. In this series, you play as part of the EDF, and you are tasked with fighting off threats that come to take over or destroy Earth! EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: WORLD BROTHERS is changing things up a little bit.
You see, this one is taking place on a parallel Earth where this Earth is a block/pixel kind of Earth. It is like Lego and Minecraft had a baby and this was the result. It is fun stuff and you need to lead the EDF to fight off this threat and put the world back together again.
Mayhem, One Giant Ant At A Time!
The gameplay of EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: WORLD BROTHERS is very similar to what the series is known for. This is a game that is not trying to be anything fancy. This is a fun 3rd person shooter where you can play as one of many different characters from the series past which I thought was awesome. Each character has different “traits” and you can select up to four characters which you can switch between to fight off the invaders. The enemies you fight are a huge part of the fun of this game as they range from giant bugs, spaceships, and giant monsters.
A One Man Army Or A Squad?
I have mainly played these games by myself over the years and always had a fun time doing so, but I do think it is worth noting that this game has a great multiplayer. You can team up with three buddies and take on the threats as a squad. What is neat about this is that you each can have your own squad which you can switch between on the fly. So, while the gameplay is a lot of mayhem you can still employ a bit of strategy so that you can use the best team members for the threat that you are facing at any giving time in EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: WORLD BROTHERS.
I have always got a kick out of the style of this series it has always had a very B-movie kind of vibe going on and that is something I always liked. This game is the first one in the series to really try and do something different. This time it has a block style and that is the major gimmick of the game. It is like the greatest hits of the EDF games in terms of the characters, weapons, monsters, and so on and that is something I think is very cool. I know a game taking this style is not exactly “fresh” however, it is fresh for the series and something I think is really neat.
I have to be honest and say that if the past games have not done it for you, EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: WORLD BROTHERS is probably not going to win you over. However, I do think this is a very fun 3rd person shooter series and the new style this one has going on is something that I think is a great deal of fun.
- I love the whole block style of the game
- It features many of the classic characters, enemies, and so on from the series
- The game is very fast-paced
- It is the kind of game that will be a lot of fun to play with your friends
- This “new” style may not be exactly fresh
- The gameplay is the same as it has always been
