Hands-on: Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Earth Defense Force is a very beloved series here at Destructoid. Various members on the team, especially Colette Bennett, adore this franchise to death. I've never played any of the games before so I've never quite understood the appeal.
