The importance of the EARTH DEFENSE FORCE games having a presence on PC cannot be understated. While the PlayStation 4 versions have proven to not only be successful, but also very good, their performance has been a bit lacking. EARTH DEFENSE FORCE 4.1 The Shadow of New Despair set the tone for what this series can do on PC, and conceivably introduced a whole new group of people to this series. And EARTH DEFENSE FORCE 5 is no different, offering 60fps in any resolution for b-movie schlock with blockbuster entertainment. “C’mon you apes, you wanna live forever?”
The Earth Defense Force series has dug itself into the B-Tier genre of games. It’s campy, it’s rough, it’s janky, and it’s buggy; quite literally. But for the fans of the series, each new release brings excitement and joy. It’s like those of us in the Dynasty Warriors camp who are excited for new releases, even if it’s their not the best. Just like Dynasty Warriors, D3 Publisher has kept the formula the same for many years. But with Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain developer Yuke’s was to take the series in new directions.
