This game's target audience is hardcore players who are itching for a challenge!
Don't expect Diablo III easiness, or even Path of Exile kind of challenge, in terms of game mechanics.
I played TONS of RPGs of all kinds back in days, and this is the hardest of all.

If you like easy RPGs (such as Sacred 3) even in Hard Mode, this game is not for you.

However, I recomend it to RPG fans who could use some hardcore challenge, for HC's sake.


Played Dark Souls? Want similiar difficulty in isometric play? RUSH, GOGOGO!


- Ingame Controls are bad. I mean not as bad as gamebreaking, but there should've been a dodge/fast run in part of movement controls, even for a limited use/limited to spesific weapon choice.

- Single player gameplay is extremely hard, but if you're an oldschool hardcore RPG player, you can always find a good tactical/strategy (choosing a good shield build & having some patience for example).

Best co-op game for hardcore players I have ever played.

Grindless hack&slash with puzzle elements for up to 4 players. It is divided into 25 diverse 5-10 minute missions, each with additional challenges (one speedrun and one tied to specific level features). Furthermore, there are 3 co-op survival maps available as well as a competitive "last man standing" survival map.

After first missions the game gets progrssively harder (from the 12th level onward you will die regurarly). The game is fair in its difficulty though - every attack can be avoided if played properly.

There are 4 classes available, each with its own niche. You can change your class and build anytime. The secret to the victory is finding the right team composition and strategy to beat the obstacles.

There is no grind. Progression is based on a number of missions and challenges you managed to finish. "Leveling up" does not change character stats, but unlocks new abilities you can choose from, diversifying your arsenal rather than making you outright stronger. You can take up to 3 active and 3 passive abilities, so respeccing for particular challenges isn't a chore.

The game can be played single player. It tunes its difficulty to the number of players quite well (some levels are a little bit harder, some a little bit easier when playing with friends).

That's not gonna be an in-depth review, sorry.

This just isn't my kind of game, I expected something else.

HOWEVER! It's not a bad game and I believe it's definitely worth trying. Do not expect a "classical" aRPG like Diablo, no. This is more about strategy than loot. Each level requires you to think ahead a bit before you tackle it, so it's a bit of an action(lots of it)RPG(kinda)puzzle game. ;-) It's not your regular "let's just wipe all of those mobs off the map to hopefully collect some valuable loot", no.

It's also more fun when played with friends, not solo.

FORCED is awesome, great combat, while still having mind melting puzzles. Singleplayer is very, very hard, but sadly EVERY COOP GAME has to go through steams connection system. And even more sadly, servers suck, and you cant host a game on yor own, so, you have to play with huge ping to the steam server, making a game that relies on skill and split second reactions unplayable.

Singleplayer is advertised but every level is still built for multiplayer, and not enough people use the multiplayer, so unless you have friends to play this with you're never going to experience it how it was meant to be played.

Most of the enemies encourage range to deal with them especially when they're swarming you in large groups, but 3/4 classes are primarily melee.

Ultimately I didn't have fun trying to play this

Do NOT buy this game if you plan to play single player. It's miserable.

That said, I absolutely recommend this game for co-op with 3 or 4 players. This game is a very tough gauntlet-style game, with puzzley elements frequently thrown in. Yes, you are smacking monsters and trying to stay alive, while doing puzzles at the same time. It's freaking hard.

But, it is very satisfying to complete the levels.

The only downside is that the netcode still isn't rock solid. For whatever reason, I have a 20%ish game freeze rate when trying to start a group game, requiring me to totally shut down the game and restart. Other than that, it seems ok.

Forced is a co-op tactical arena game. It can be compared to games like Diablo, but it's not another Diablo clone - there's no loot in this game and its more co-op than any Diablo-like games I played.

In this game you play as slave gladiator who is forced to fight to amuse god-like creatures. Thus this game is based around Trials - rather small arena-like challenges. They can vary from "kill everyone" kind of thing to puzzles, mazes and boss battles.

You have 4 classes(or to be more precise - 4 weapons) - Volcanic Hammer(AoE melee damage), Frost Shield(Tank), Spirit Blades(Single target melee damage), Storm Bow(Ranged damage) (Each of them have skills to heal each other). In each trial you can get a maximum of 3 crystals (1 for the completion of the trial, 1 for challenge(these will vary from trial to trial) and 1 for time attack). These crystals will unlock new skills(you have a total of 8 active and 8 passive skills for each weapon with only 6 slots(3 for active and 3 for passive)). Also note that your progress is shared among all weapons, so you will get all skills for all weapons simultaneously,

Another thing is Spirit Mentor(named Balfus) who is one of the key features of the game. Balfus is your way of interacting with environment and is vital to every trial. To spice things up, you can't just order him to go somewhere. Instead, you can only call him on your current position, which makes everything a bit harder.

And about the difficulty - this game is hard. Like, really hard. Not once have I found myself stuck and not once did I go back to gather some more crystals.

As a closing note - this game is heavily co-op oriented and I don't know how good it plays in single player. So it will be better if you have some friends to play with.

As a downside of this game I can say about quite unstable net code, but devs are constantly working on it.

Don't try this without friends, you'll go mad in singleplayer. Extremely difficult, we've spent over an hour on certain trials (still not done with all of them), especially difficult if you want to do the challenges. Controls work great on a controller, gameplay is overall interesting. The orb idea is a neat one, makes for fun and interesting puzzles, although you might kill your friends over it at certain times. You WILL have to go back and revisit previous levels to do the challenges, which provide the upgrade gems for abilities. I personally like this, challenges are usually fun and they really need teamwork, but I imagine it may bother some people playing the same levels over and over.

Plays best if you have friends over, you really need to communicate (yell, actually). The main reason why you really need friends for this. Everyone should have a mic and lots of patience, really difficult to have this with strangers.

Got a 4 pack in sale a while back, money well spent. We're at roughly 23 hours so far and still has a lot to offer, so I'm pretty sure you would be happy with it even at full price.

I really owe this game a review. I've had more fun with this playing with friends than any other game. No other game has permitted me to talk at such loud levels to the people sitting next to me.

It's a lot like gauntlent but a greater challenge in my opinion. Where as gauntlent is more geared toward grinding mobs down, this is more for how well can you work together on a particular goal. I haven't encountered many games that make you have to be this tightly coordinated. Weak links will become apparent and quick. Each level brings a new way of having to making a plan. Each monster has to be learned how to be dealt with. Kiting isn't an option. Understanding how each fighter operates is vital.

My warnings: This is meant for co-op. You can play single player, but you aren't going to have as much fun. More importantly, you will want to find a consistant person or so to play with, which I know isn't always easy. Pugging this game usually ends in a bad result, and there aren't enough people in the lobby to make games happen when you have time to play. Also, I would not say this is for a casual gamer. If you haven't built up a reasonable degree of twitch, I feel you are just going to get frustrated. I'm not saying people can't learn, but I've seen people that don't play a lot of games say this is not for them.

Games are fun, but to me this one was an experience. One I could share with some good friends.

FORCED is a Action Role-Playing Game heavily pushing a co-op experience.

I would say the weakest part of the game, other than some of the technical issues that some people still experience (see technical) - would be the story. It's a very quick and short tale that leaves a lot to the imagination. I'm not saying it's bad; simply shallow. If your goal is to find a rich story - you will not find it here.

All players have the option to play one of four classes which are determined in the entrance room to each trial room. It is also good to note that no matter the decision of the class; in most cases you will have healing spells, damage spells, and defensive spells of some kind. Other than the inherit differences between melee and ranged; the developers have done a good job at keeping most everything balanced. The true co-op experience comes into play before anyone even enters a trial; deciding who will have which spell to counter the trial mechanics. This is an element that most co-op games don't have.

Once your skills and class has been chosen - per challenge - you will face 25 trials with increasing difficulty. As one may expect the game starts out in a tutorial manner, teaching players how to navigate the trial and use new mechanics. Balfus (your spirit guide) is an integral part of the gameplay, requiring players to move him to destroy shrines or statues, light the path, assist in damage dealing, or in some trials - used against you!The primary game play is to complete objectives which range from killing monsters, finding the end of a maze, or simply lighting shrines. As a side note I wouldn't say this is necessarily a game with heavy puzzle elements; however there is a degree of puzzle solving.

If you plan on being a completionist, to get all 75 crystals and all achievements, expect to spend some time on this game. At the time of this writing I have completed all achievements in roughly 24 hours of gameplay. Most challenges took my team 1-10 tries; the challenge on the last boss took us roughly 4 hours. If you plan on simply completing the trials to have the experience to play - expect at best half of that. I would not recommend this game if you want to just play single player - this is a game best experienced with friends. Disclaimer: Your mileage my vary, every gamer and team is different you could see significantly less or more gameplay.

I have to peck at the game a bit on this level; there are still a few issues with networking that the developers are actively working on. In addition the game is poorly optimized in terms of graphics use. A lot of the options to effectively reduce load on a computers GPU is non-existant. My system with a GTX570 runs this game fine, but quite hot in comparison to other games with a much higher expectation (100% load in some areas running 70c+). I assume as the game matures further, the developers will continue solving some of the technical issues that some players are reporting as problems; they did not effect my team as much as some but it is important to note that they could come up.

Highly recommended for any CO-OP experience. This game is quite fun with a lot of potential for growth in the future. 9/10 for what it is, and for my experience.
