What happens if you mix the epic invasion of Earth in Independence Day with the cheesiness of the original Godzilla’s “man in a rubber suit?” You get Earth Defense Force 2017 (EDF). On the surface, EDF has one of the silliest setups around with intentionally stilted dialogue, non sequiturs and logic that goes against the known laws of physics. For most movies or games that would be a sign of a complete disaster but not here. Heck, even the title screams B MOVIE through and through. This is a budget game made by a budget Japanese developer that knows exactly what it is that they are striving for – pure balls to the wall non-stop action.
