Firstly, it's important to state that this is a *really* fun game. You need to know that before I bring in my criticisms of it. Go through this with a buddy (or a couple of 'em!) and you're going to have a great time, as you plough through enemies and unlock all the different 'bros' along the way. It's a 2D side-scrolling game in the mold of something from the SNES or Megadrive, and you'll die a LOT. Be prepared for that. For a fun co-op experience, this will hit the spot.

Now, all of that being said, this game is incredibly buggy. It's loaded up with glitches galore; from spawning errors, to insta-deaths that aren't supposed to happen, to bosses not even dying properly. The game is littered with issues, and many of them seemed to affect the final two levels as myself and a friend approached the ending. Both of the final bosses died on one of our screens and not the other, glitching out and forcing us to tell each other what was happening on our end. I didn't even get to see the ending of the game, having been greeted with a black screen that simply wouldn't go away. Task manager sorted that problem out but, really, I'm disappointed.

There's such a gem of a game in here, and I absolutely recommend it, but be prepared for a bumpy ride along the way. There are many issues to fix, and the developer(s) does seem to be active on the forum and asking for bug reports, so there's hope for this. It just should be a much more polished experience, which I reckon another six months or so of patching might take it to. Again, recommend as a fun co-op game, but be ready for a wealth of issues to plague that experience.

Over the top action movie: The game!

Throws a heap of action movie heroes into one low rez hack and slash shooter. It's like Bullet Hell, but with a lot more explosions. Seriously, there are a LOT of explosions. It's hack 'n slash sometimes, but every now and then you need to assess a situation instead of running in headfirst. Makes you think of strategies. Also this game is really funny. The "bro" puns in the hero's names, the names of the bosses, the setting. As the levels go on, it just gets progressively more hilariously over the top with explosions and you end up killing hordes of enemies at once. It's so much fun!

I have a few complaints, though. In Ironbro mode, half the time your save gets corrupted when you get down to one life. Basic grunts sometimes shoot two bullets instead of one, which seems like a strange RNG-based element in an otherwise completely skill-based game. Kamakaze grunts also sometimes instantly explode, which is just plain unfair. Sky fortress is far too hard to beat without digging underground, which is just a cheap tactic anyway. Aaaaand that's actually it! Besides those little tweaks I'd make, this game is flipping perfect. The ultimate America simulator.

This is fantastic. It starts off like any other platformer, and then quickly spirals into some sort of steroid infused madness.

Brilliant side-scrolling shooter best summarized as "Metal Slug with destructible terrain", and improves on that series in every way other than quality of sprites.

But even that glowing recommendation does not do the game justice: rescuing captives in Metal Slug is of relatively little import, but in Broforce each one is both an extra life and a change of character: hilarious 80s-90s action heroes with pumped up machismo, including "Rambro", "Brominator", "Brolander", etc.

Each Bro plays very differently, as might be expected when they range from a the sword-wielding Bronan to Tank Girl knockoff Tank Bro, who comes with, yes, a tank. As it happens, one of the very few criticisms I have for the game is that some of the bros play so differently that it can be frustrating being forced to change at every death -- it's difficult to practice.

The comedy doesn't end with the bros, either; the story-mode plot is a delightfully pitch-perfect parody of action movie stereotypes.

The strongest recommendation I can give is that when the most recent update was made I thought I'd play a few levels just to see the new characters and I ended up playing through the full game again. It's that good.

The most fun coop game in my 1000+ game steam library.

If you've seen an action movie in the past 20 years, you'll get at least a few of the references. It's MURICA in the best way imaginable. Everything explodes if you wish it hard enough.

Playing through this with a friend or 3 will be the best evening you've spent in months, if not years.

BROFORCEEEEEE is an adrenaline fulled , sidescroller shooter that proudly parodies and embraces the 80's and 90's B-class stupidity and cliche'd action, mixing them with Contra-style gameplay and terrain destruction .
It features many completely different characters from a gameplay and mechanical standpoint, a brilliant rock soundtrack, putting you against a varied set of enemies and platforming based levels ( there's a fully fleshed editor as well for you to mess around ) plus some fun COOP and VS modes.

You also get to literally kill Satan at the end of every stage and then "pay your respects" by urinating in his grave.


If this game does not sound fun, then you're a terrorist, no exceptions.
