Do you have a friend that would be willing to play it with you for 100+ hours and get all the achievements? If so, this game is absolutely worth it. If you plan on just playing single player, don't bother.

I still have 0 points for this game - I guess I will have to pop it in tonight. I would say its worth roughly 20$ max .. it's a fun little gem, plus it's a great conversation piece "you wanna play this game where we shoot at giant red ants and aliens?"

The problem with this poll is that it isnt subjective. It is not a $60 dollar game for me at all. My usual standard is I need more than 1 hour a gameplay for 1 dollar in price for it to at least qualify as a good buy.

You have more than that in hours in this game, but there are a LOT of hours that are just farming weapons, not really anything interesting playwise (this games biggest downfall, really.) It does not mean it isnt a good game, just doesn't qualify as a good buy at $60.

Now at $20 it is a great buy. When I bought it used at gamestop, I paid $14 I think. For that price it is excellent.

as many hours as people are saying that you have to put into the game in doesn't even seem like a wise choice to rent because you either won't get many points from or if you do you ll end up keeping the game for months, i picked it up a couple days ago in a 2 pack from amazon(2 games for ten bucks each!) has two packs with this game to. now the time to buy it

Worth it? Depends how much it costs...

I'd say that this game is fun. Sure, it repetitive and very simple, but it offers an addictive game-play. If you don't like grinding too much, don't bother. I personally picked up this game for only 10$ used at GameStop, so I was barely paying anything. I'd say it was worth it. I do enjoy this game, but it will take a LOOOOONG time before I get the full 1000g. It's fun, but I can only handle playing so much at a time. Pace yourself, and the game is decent. It's really cheesy, but oh well. I can't wait for the sequel. It looks even better.

If played with a friend, this game can be one of the best on 360..Especially if you play it through to it's entirety.

This is actually the third in the series, the first two were budget games on the PS2 here in Japan. They were so popular that they became a big hit and moved up to next gen world relessed with EDF 2017.
I can't wait to play the new one.

Ignoring the terrible graphics and clunky control feel, this game is absolute gold! It's crazy fun and it's nuts! Total destruction of buildings in each mission, hordes of ants and spiders and giant robots! It's just plain fun! Simple as that! The sequel is as good, but less aliens on screen at any one time (due to increase in graphics) which is made up for by the addition of xbox live co-op!
