    It’s Left 4 Dead with aliens down to the very core, but a flattering rendition of the formula that’s worth playing with friends.

    Earthfall is a cooperative FPS with a few interesting ideas that it fails to deliver on. Built on a poor foundation of unsatisfying combat and repetitive mission structure, every aspect of the game is mediocre at best. With some serious retooling, its light building mechanic could be an interesting twist, but there’s little reason to play Earthfall in its current state with so many better examples of the genre already out there.

    Parts of Earthfall present a certain charm, and the co-op shooting experience could certainly be fun with the right group of friends. But it’s hard to get away from the fact that Earthfall is a lesser incarnation of a decade-old game, with fewer modes and missions, at a higher price.

    Earthfall just isn’t fun. The game has a solid foundation but that structure doesn’t hold anything that’s entertaining or interesting enough to merit the effort of playing it, especially when there are already several superior games that inhabit the same subgenre.

    Earthfall is not a bad game. But it's also far from being a very good one. It's biggest problem is the lack of epic fights. In a FPS you expect a good feeling in weapons but here every weapon feels like a paintball rifle - not enough recoil and not enough feeling of power. Overall, the game is too generic and too close of Left 4 Dead but without the fabulous mechanics. A game to have a bit of fun for one evening with friends, but nothing more.
