    Broforce sets a new standard for 2D action shooters. And it does it with style.

    It's an homage to the Metal Slug era, and it's incredibly well done. Best enjoyed with friends and some beers (if you're of age, both for this kind of game, and the alcohol).

    Carving your way through a level in Broforce is chock full of muscle flexing carnage, and it’s brilliant for it as explosions rock the screen and you tear through the scenery. Though inventive, some of the boss fights halt that fun, and the way co-op deals with lives is too unforgiving, but it’s always throwing out something new, whether it’s a different looking environment to blow up, a new type of enemy to blow up or another new bro to add to the team and blow things up with.

    An intense love letter to old action movies. [01/2016, p.71]

    Imagine Contra meets Kid Chameleon via Super Meat Boy, with a touch of Sensible Software's irreverence, and you're there. One the most enjoyable couch multiplayer games I've played in quite a while.

Broforce was delightful. Funny, challenging to just the right degree, and full of blowing things up. Loved it. It's an homage to action movies and a satire of 'Merica!nism. Show me someone who doesn't love this game and I'll show you someone who is grumpy. Expand

    The best thing ever made by man.
    I could play it for the rest of my life, and not die because my pure patriotism would keep me alive.

    Good job for a game made by some South Africans with minimal equipment.

    Broforce, or, as I like to call it, The Expendables if it wasn't sh*te, takes the irreverent humor that permeated Team America: World PoliceBroforce, or, as I like to call it, The Expendables if it wasn't sh*te, takes the irreverent humor that permeated Team America: World Police and amps it up to truly obscene levels, never letting up on the gore or, perhaps more importantly, the fun. No matter how repetitive decimating throngs upon throngs of faceless terrorists in increasingly creative ways gets, the game excels at keeping things fresh, whether it be via introducing a new enemy type or bringing a new Bro into the action. But perhaps the most unreservedly entertaining aspect of the game is how hilarious it is. Uncalled-for explosions, satirical jabs at the "America, F*** Yeah!" mentality, and a copious amount of muscles permeate Broforce and turn it into an experience you aren't likely to forget. The level editor is excellent and keeps the game from getting old; multiplayer follows suit by doubling (or even quadrupling) the fun.

    On an overall scale, Broforce is easily one of the most hilariously entertaining games currently on the market. Although it still could use some work in some areas, all of these issues are compensated for with explosions and testosterone aplenty. To say it would offers a bang for your buck would be an understatement; this game will turn even the most devoted tea-drinkers into fully-fledged American citizens.

    To enjoy this game, you must:

    A) accept it as dumb, mindless, repetitive fun, and
    B) realize that it's not a love letter to American action movies (as IGN describes it), but rather a satirical view of America's foreign interventions. In this game, there's quite a bit of anti-American sentiment, and missing that is missing a rather big point the developers were trying to make.

    This is very evident in the level descriptions, where America is portrayed as xenophobic, warmongering, and politically inept. Here are examples:

    "Iraqistan? F#$k Iraqistan. Americanize them!" (--Obviously a reference to Operation Iraqi Freedom)

    "The people from this country look, speak, and act differently than we do. We've gotta move fast!"

    "Yourkraine? More like OURkraine." (sic)

    "Something something bipartisanship something something unilateral action."

    As an American, I'm not saying there's anything wrong with this. I actually think it's hilarious. Just pointing out that we're not in on the joke here; we are the joke.

    Gameplay wise, it's fun but best with a party. Some of the character abilities arent well balanced (Indiana BROnes is useless), but overall pretty varied and interesting. I particularly enjoyed the desperate attempt to fit a "bro" into names that can't possibly be used for that pun, such as Ellen Ripley.

    i hated this game; the campaign was stupid; it was too easy and simplistic; ironbro was generic and the concept was absolutely generic asi hated this game; the campaign was stupid; it was too easy and simplistic; ironbro was generic and the concept was absolutely generic as well. I'm sorry, but why was such a game created that is so bad, easy (hard for some idiots who don't know how to play games) and generic made? Kudos for the developer for making the game, however, it needs to be changed a lot; possibly a campaign that is longer as well as good characters Expand
