"The best game you've never heard of."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

In an era of gaming filled with pretentious stories, pretty graphics but very little interesting/fun gameplay, Earth Defense Force 4.1 brings cheesy voice overs, giant insects and utterly chaotic and frantic 3rd person shooter fun in this updated version of EDF 2025 (originally on PS3/Xbox 360). Also with a very rare feature that most games lack nowadays, COUCH CO OP! If you're looking for the video game equivalent of 90s action film Starship Troopers, you've come to the right place.

Killing giant bugs and robots is fun and this game has them both.

"Seriously fun"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I really like this title, and have been playing it in couch co-op mode, a rare feature. It's not an absolute 5-star game, as the dialogue is “interesting” (count how many times “Giant Insect” is mentioned) and the difficulty curve goes from easy to “Holy 5h17” relatively quickly. Still, this game is worth every cent, and I regret nothing.

Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair reaches new heights in its gigantic military vs kaiju gameplay on PlayStation 4! Huge monsters clash with squads of giant robots as bomb-mounted tanks and flying troops equipped with laser rifles shoot it out with alien bug armies in the streets! With the new heavily-amoured Fencer class, the action has never been bigger or more explosive!


  • Play as four unique classes, the Ranger, Wing Diver, Air Raider, and the new Fencer!
  • The new Fencer class is a heavily-armoured juggernaut armed with a powerful melee weapon and shield and huge weapons like the mini gun!
  • Fight through nearly 100 unique missions in single player, two player couch co-op, or four player online co-op!
  • Utilise hundreds of different weapons, gadgets, and vehicles, from rifles and grenades, to giant mecha with rocket-powered fists!
  • Call in huge airstrikes or command armoured vehicles like tanks and troop transport!
  • Cities crumble to dust as massive kaiju battle gigantic mecha!
