10 Biggest Boss Battles In Video Game History - Ranked By Size
4. Mothership (Earth Defense Force 2017)
Approximate Size: 365 metres
In a modernisation of the classic arcade shooters, Earth Defense
Force 2017 (actually released in 2007) sees unnamed protagonist Storm
1 of the EDF (Earth Defense Force) deployed across Japan as aliens
descend over the planet. With their massive mothership hovering over
Tokyo, UFOs attack from the skies while bug-like creatures attack
from the ground.
With Michael Bay seemingly directing the EDF forces, Storm 1 uses
a range of explosive weaponry to take down the invading enemies in
caves, towns and cities, with little to no regard for human life or
thought for the infrastructure and buildings around them. Storm 1
seems set on stopping the alien invasion, no matter the cost – and
we love him/her for it.
The final mission sets the protagonist and his allies against the
imposing mothership itself. The rest of the world has been conquered
and the mothership is preparing a cannon to destroy all of Japan.
However, in true climatic fashion, Storm 1 takes control of the
cannon and fires on the mothership until it explodes into a glorious
ball of flame.
Writer, aspiring author, and I won't stop travelling until I've seen it all. Whilst I might take a break now and then to rant about politics or muse over philosophy, I'm not afraid to roll up my sleeves, buckle down, and spend some solid hours gaming!
