10/10
Je n'arrive pas à comprendre comment les gens peuvent se permettre de juger un jeu en ayant jouer maximum 2h dessus.
Je trouve que ce jeu est un véritable bijou et j'aimerais sincèrement qu'il y ait plus de développeurs qui s'inspirent de celui-ci.
Pourquoi?
D'une, le niveau de difficulté est très bien jaugé. On commence avec des épreuves simples qui servent de didacticiel aux mechanics du jeu pour ensuite arriver à des épreuves et des boss où il faut 20 à 30 essais avant de réussir en appliquant des stratégies intéressantes et intelligentes.
De deux, le multi est absolument génial. Si toi et tes potes vous cherchez un jeu qui nécessite de la dextérité et de la véritable coopération, ce jeu est fait pour toi!
De trois, ce jeu ne vaut pas son prix. Il nécessite beaucoup d'heures de jeu avant de le terminer à 100%. On y a joué avec deux potes déjà une dixaine d'heures et on est pas au bout, je vous l'dis!
Pour ce qui est des bémols, il n'y en a qu'un seul. La technique. Il y a des bugs techniques de temps à autre mais il faut savoir que ce jeu a été conçu par des jeunes danois en kickstarter donc avec les moyens du bord et put*** ils méritent un peu d'amour pour leur jeu.
J'espère que ce commentaire vous aidera à vous lancer dans un jeu qui sort des sentiers battus à l'heure des jeux simplifiés pour la populace.

10/10 Must have.
J'ai passé du temps à lire la plupart des commentaires précédents (que ce soit sur la communauté anglophone et francophone) et je suis effaré de voir qu'un argument revient bien trop souvent: celui de la difficulté et donc de par le fait de "non amusement". La difficulté est bien entendu un critère de notation d'un jeu (même si les plus vieux se souviennent qu'à l'époque des guides papiers la difficulté n'était pas évaluée parce que le jeu était presque toujours hardu et les vrais critères d'évaluation apparaissait en filigrane). Mais que l'on note un jeu aussi durement réalisé la plus basse note possible je ne suis pas d'accord.
Ce jeu est fun, Intelligent et diablement addictif. On m'a un peu forcé à acheter ce jeu parce qu'on me disait qu'il était vraiment bien, j'ai décider de lui donner une chance et bondieu que je ne suis pas décu.
Casual passez votre chemin, si vous n'aimez pas refaire 20 fois un boss parce qu'il vous atomise sans stratégie viable, ce jeu n'est pas fait pour vous. Un challenge elevé (sans être infasable).
Quelques bugs par-ci par là certes, mais depuis le patch sorti en juin la plupart des bugs de connexions / graphiques sont résolus.
Nous jouons actuellement à 3 et le jeu nous plait énormément et j'espere que la nouvelle communauté s'habituera à de nouveaux mecanismes non éculés.

Ce jeu est un des meilleurs jeux coopératifs auxquels j'ai pu jouer. A la fois drôle et exigeant, celui-ci vous procurera de nombreuses heures de plaisir avec vos amis.
Le public visé est clairement "gamers" : certains passages requièrent vraiment précision, patience et stratégie (et le tout en coop).
Personnes ne supportant pas les "die and retry" s'abstenir.

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.

If you are looking for a couch coop game, this one is the best or one of the best.
Levels include increasingly challenging puzzle and hack n slash level. Some levels are almost purely slow puzzly levels, some are fast paced fighting levels and rest are some combination of those two.
Game mechanics are simple and are introduced sufficiently smoothly so you don't feel overwhelmed. Later on these mechanics are combined in various ways and the game never feels boring.

Biggest con for this game would be that its not a single-player game. You can play it alone but its not even half the fun.

So if you are looking for a coop game to have fun with your friends this game is for you.

Incredible game. Hits the right balance between "these developers are evil!" and "holy crap I just pulled that off!". The four classes are well varied and the skill trees are very interesting. Toying with characters builds is quite fun. The story is simple but the early twist plus good characters and good voice actors make it engaging. Coop (and local coop!) makes this a great party game too. All that together and the result is a game I haven't been able to put down. I think about it when not playing and push for the "ok just one more unlock" when I am playing.

This game is AMAZING.

Play it co-op with 2-4 people and it's endlessly fun. I haven't been as addicted to a non MOBA since Starcraft 2!

Simply the best 'Diablo 3' style local arena game I've ever played.
The more local players you have with xbox controllers connected the better your experience will be but this can still be enjoyed by yourself.

The story is well done, the gameplay never gets boring and is fair, the enemies are challenging but too much and the traps and obstacles are intense and will make you think.

Just a really top game I would recommend this to anyone looking for a game that won’t disappoint!

I strongly recommend this game if you're looking for an awesome (local) coop game, that you can spends entire nights with 1-3 friends and some beer on. The levels are challenging, but never unfair and completing a challenge is extremely rewarding.

I've played it with 3 different groups of friends so far and always had lots of fun. Even if you know the levels, your friends will still suggest different ways of solving the puzzles sometimes which makes the leves never become boring.

Absolutely Positive, regardless few minor bugs (but since it's an indie game, i guess its fine). The boss fights remind me of WoW raid boss(which is fun and chanllage), and this game is not time consuming at all. (due to the fact that it is not a grinding game)

Buy a 4-pack for you and your gaming friends (friends who had experience on video games, since this is not an easy game), you will have a wonderful 20-30ish hours gaming experience!

I played this game co-op with a friend. I have not tried single player. That said, the game was quite fun with one other person and requires a signifcant amount of teamwork to complete challenges and to fight bosses.

FORCED is an interesting take on the action rpg genre. Instead of running around solely fighting hordes of monsters, you have arenas that you must enter and complete challenges. You also have an NPC that you must guide around who is an integral part of completing these challenges, which usually involves calling him to particular locations, causing him to move over shrines or other objectives to complete objectives while monsters are there to get in the way and make things more difficult. I wouldn't go so far as to call these challenges puzzles, as it is usually pretty obvious what needs to be done and is more a matter of execution.

There are a panoply of abilities you can unlock to help you destroy monsters. They are unlocked by completing arenas, completing them quickly, and by doing special objectives in them. There are four classes and you are not tied to a particular one. You can change your class any time you are not in an arena and you will have the same tier of abilities unlocked on each character, so you don't have to level each one or anything like that.

The boss arenas are fun and each one has their own interesting set of mechanics. A few of the arenas and one of the boss fights in particular (the skeleton, for reference) are quite difficult, but that just makes beating them all the more satisfying.

So all in all, a fun game to play co-op. I'm not sure about the single player aspect of the game. Having had a multiplayer play through, I have no interest in going through a second run solo.

the game 'Forced' is a very well playaible game.

the art of this game is stuning
When I first played this game I didn't know what to think of it.
But when I started playing more I fell in love with the stuning game art, It looks great!
I like the nature overgrown in this game it really makes the arena's intresting to enter.

Nice combat system
I also like to way your character fights in this game, you can just slash your opponents with your sword or shoot them trough the head with your mighty bow, but you may also use some neat skills you gain when you set down your roots to victory! these skills are very nice it's not just a button you press so your character slashes more differently than normal, the animations of these skills are just lovely I really like it when you teleport with your green assassin your character fades for a second cause he is to fast for tracking him, the game desingers really had there minds at this game they didn't just made a new game that looks like all those others it is a little bit different than a normal RPG game, I really like the arena's in this game.

I would recoment this to you if you like gladiators or rpg games.
you need to try out this game, it is in the sale now so be quick -75% that is a very very very good deal if you ask me!

go ahead and try it out yourself!

I will rate this game a great 4 out of 5!

Exellent local CO-OP game ever!
Play like Impossible Bosses but with some sub-boss to fight first before fighting the big boss!
The combination of characters gives you ability to win the game easier and funnier. You and your friends may need more communication during the game to solve some simple logic tasks!

Forced is a multiplayer heavy game. i really dont recommend playing alone, as it is not as much fun and also some of the challanges are very hard or even impossible without other people helping you control the orb/ fight the mobs.
it would also be pretty cool to see each class have their own "combo" with each other that can change your playstyle if you change class instead of just holding the attack button and use your skill when enemies are fully marked (marks is a system where if you hit the enemies they will get mark, more marks=more damage to skills)

gameplay is basically a multiplayer coop puzzle action rpg game, where gems act as "levels" , more gems you have means more skills/shortcuts are unlocked for your character. i dont really like the only 3 shortcuts at max, but maybe this is so the game wouldnt be too easy, as the skills dont have that long cool down.

my favourite part is probably the bossest. each have their own way to kill and each works differently, you may need to swap a few classes to see which is most efficient for which boss.

graphics are pretty good, not in a high res way, but it looks pretty unique in the enemy/your character design, though i wish there is more customization done for your character other than picking out which skill to use.

fun game, even more with friends. get it if you have friends to play, if not then they do have lobbies for that but it seems like the servers have wobbly connectiong or net code because it connects whenever it feels like, only when its a private game your friend or you make will work. at least, thats what happened to me. this will probably get fixed soon.
