I must start by saying that I am a Metal Gear fan. While I do not know the specific details about all the games and characters, I still enjoy the series. I have the original Metal Gear game on the NES and have memories of my older brother playing it on the PS1 and PS2. I, myself, have played both Rising and MGS4 on my PS3. As such, I have some extremely high expectations from what could possibly be Hideo Kojima's final Metal Gear game.
It’s been a number of years since Earth Defense Force 2025 was released on the PS3. I had the pleasure of reviewing its PS3 predecessor, Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon, which I had a great experience playing. Even a few years later, I still have fond memories of this series. Does 2025 recapture the magic of its predecessor or is it unable to stand on its own?
