    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.

The art style is beautiful and the game has great humor, especially if you pay attention to details. It feeds a lot from the 80s-90s action movie culture and if you are familiar with unlockable characters from Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris to Mad Max, Blade and many others, you will get a much more enjoyment out of it. As much as it can be played with 4 players online co-op, the sweet spot is with 2 players. Otherwise, you might find yourself in a chaotic mess of explosions and it will be quite hard to follow what’s really happening. Each character has its own main and special weapons which all feel quite unique and offer a different style of gameplay. You do not get to choose your character (which would probably lead the majority people to mostly choose their one favorite character), but I felt this was a good choice in terms of game mechanics and motivates you to have different approaches to the level based on your given character for that specific level. This also prevents the game from feeling repetitive, which it otherwise would as you most levels are not that different from each other except the ones with the aliens.

    There are two drawbacks I can think of. The game continues during the cutscenes and when the cutscene is over, you might find yourself in an undesirable situation which is a bit frustrating. The other drawback is that the custom campaigns are offline only, a missed opportunity by the developers. With a good level editor and ability to play custom campaigns online, Broforce could have been a classic.

    Overall, Broforce is a great co-op to play with a friend. It is very enjoyable for as long as it lasts and ends before it gets boring.

    I went into this only knowing what I saw from the screenshots and the trailer. I bought it roughly on the high ratings on steam. I would sayI went into this only knowing what I saw from the screenshots and the trailer. I bought it roughly on the high ratings on steam. I would say that I have had a blast playing this game, both for the humor and the challenge. I have found myself dying multiple times on each level, knowing it was my fault and being excited to try again. Its a great sidescrolling shooter that doesn't take itself too seriously and is a great way to relax when you don't feel like diving into more time consuming games. Expand

    Badass.
    It's essentially an 8-bit run-and-gunner starring characters from old action movies such as Robocop, John Rambo, and.. wait, Chuck Norris is in this game? Ok, it's perfect. I'm clocking out early. 10/10. Anyways, the environment around you is completely destructible, which makes for more gameplay options. Also, there are so many explosions going on, it would make Micheal Bay cry. However, as a result of this, it's easy to lose yourself in all of the chaos and die. There's a level editor, which in some cases is completely worthless, but it allows for you to play other people's levels which is really cool! The game is pretty short, like any indie game, but the excitement, the humor, and the gameplay make this game so much fun. If there's one thing I think this game needed was more explosions.

    BROFORCE gets an 8/10.

    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
