5 images of Earth Defense Forces X

5 images of Earth Defense Forces X

D3 released five sweet screenshots of Earth Defense Forces X, last instalment of an excellent PS2 action series. The game is available in Japan since last week, and the impressions from the people who imported it are very good. Hopefully, with the US version planned to hit the shelves in march 07, we can hope an Euro release date to be announced quickly.

I just picked this game up yesterday, and I've got to say it's a fun little action title and for the price you can't go wrong!

The graphics are actually quite decent, and while the controls seem a little quirky at first, it doesn't take long for the average gamer to get into the swing of the things. The coolest part about this game is the size of everything. Some of the aliens you fight up close are 10 to 20 times larger than you - - - the audio isn't anything to scream about, most of it is just loads of Japanese through radios - people shouting, screaming, dying - everything you'd expect from an alien invasion really.

Sounds like everything I wanted from it, and more!

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but i don't see him as THE drake. and so i'd rather they get someone else to do that. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog you don't need to see the same actor take on the role and grow up and age with it. in fact i'd rather they not do that. i can see tom holland as origins, U3 street urchin drake (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @droezelke: depends entirely how they tackled it. i could totally see a movie situation where a young drake is being played by holland and an older drake being played by fillion. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @KORNdog: He's a bit too old to start a possible movie franchise. I'd rather see a fairly young and good actor. On the other hand, game movies.... (2 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: His character in P&R was too unbelievable? So Nic'sk, Aubrey's, Aziz's,...characters were believable in comparison? (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog He really should have been Drake in movies back when firefly went down the drain. He was a good age and fitness level at that point. I'm interested to see how Tom Holland does in the role. (11 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I think Fillion is like a perfect Drake. But he'd need some serious training to do it full justice. Right now he's a bit too out of shape. But personality wise he nails it. (11 Hours ago)
