Yo gangsta gamin’ nation, listen up. I picked up this here game, Earth Defense: Legend of Defender, and it has been kickin’ my sorry ass to the curb. Seriously, I just can’t hang with this game. I can’t tell if I’m just a pathetic excuse for an earth defender or this game is just straight up clunky and unnatural. Considering the fact that I am the OG gangsta gamer, I’m blaming the game. Let me give you the low down and what’s going down….
First of turning your space tank is ridiculousy difficult, last minute turn arounds are damn near impossible. It’s just unnatural. Personally, I think it’s just a cheap cop out for a remake of Space Invaders. At least moving around in that was easier and manageable, this is just absurd. Also, since when do space enemies fly in distinct patterns? Last time I checked space was crazy…not some maze of pathways. I mean come on, that’s just basic science, even a gangsta like me can figure that one out. That ain’t the point the homies. The point is, there is too much challenge and too little enjoyment. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good challenge but this shit just ain’t pleasurable. On top of all that, if you earn extra defense systems, why the fuck do you have to wait a few seconds for them to deploy. I earned this damn bonus weapons and I want to use them when I need them, not three seconds after I’m already dead. That leads me to another topic, it needs to be a little more clear how close you are to dying and if you’ve been damaged or not. The batter logo at the top just doesn’t cut it for me because I’m too distracted by the actual killing rampage I’ve got to be on.
Bottom line: For a game that’s free, I’d give it a chance. It’s not the worst game out there but it’s certainly not the best. Don’t expect efficiency or excellent graphics. It is what it is. A free shooter game.
