Earth Defense Force has always been a bit of guilty pleasure for me. The equivalent of a fast food burger meal, its series entries have always been cheap and cheerful, and the kind of games that one could waste half an hour over after a stressful day at work.
Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair is a HD re-release of the 2025 game that was previously only available on last gen consoles. As such, it benefits from all the hardware benefits that the PS4 has over the previous console versions – such as improved frame-rate.
At £12.49 the game’s definitely a bargain and is worth picking up if you’ve ever been on the fence with regards to Sandlot’s titles.
