There is only one other Earth Defense Force game has been on PC, EARTH DEFENSE FORCE 4.1 The Shadow of New Despair is the one that gets it right: 1080p, 60fps, and even anti-aliasing. While the game itself isn’t a visual powerhouse, this is the best a Earth Defense Force game has ever looked. EARTH DEFENSE FORCE 4.1 The Shadow of New Despair is also the best-playing game of the series – combine this with the ability to play cooperatively online with a friend, and you’ve got magic in the making. EARTH DEFENSE FORCE 4.1 is not technically or visually impressive, but it makes a case for unadulterated fun being core to a game experience over the latter.
