If you take a look at action movies from the 1980’s , you’ll notice a trend. Big action, big explosions, and non-stop action. This is the core of the experience in Broforce. Using a team of inspired action heroes from movies of this era, each with their own “Bro” title, you fight to defeat terrorists and save the world.
Action all the time
Armed with among currently 19 Bros , most inspired from films like Rambo , Terminator , and Robocop , along with recent heroes like Mr. Anderbro ( The Matrix ) plus Brochete ( Machete ), you barrel your way through different levels. Levels are designed after a rainforest and cityscape, but you spend more often than not destroying everything around you.
Broforce has different enemy varieties, from the simple assault rifle soldier, to mini-gun enforcers, nut you might have different Bros, each with different weapons and abilities you use to defeat them. The variety in the Bros permits a lot of replayability because you unlock various Bros as you rescue them in each stage.
Broforce is available on Steam Early Access , so it’s not the complete game and still a work-in-progress. This also means there are game a crash bugs and some glitches during phases. Although this doesn’t break the experience, it can lead to some frustration when the online game crashes to desktop.
Free Lives is continually releasing updates to make new content available. The available multiplayer modes are usually fun, but also lack stability, even though developer is open to feedback.
A work in progress
Since Broforce is an Early Access game, it might be prone to crashes and bugs. The single player campaign is generally stable, but there are issues which can result in the game to crash to desktop computer.
When playing the game, using a controller is preferred to using a keyboard because the action can get very intense, to the point where you have to navigate through a lot of bullets plus explosions.
The campaign is great and on the first playthrough, you a lot of the Bros. It takes a lot of rescues in order to unlock all of them, but it’s worth it. Each time you rescue a Bro through capture, you will transform into a randomly Bro with their attacks and abilities.
Broforce features some other online multiplayer modes, but the vast majority are still in alpha stages and aren’t fully developed. The game works excellently in local co-op although.
Action and explosions all in 16 bit type
Broforce uses a 16 bit graphic design. Characters and levels are designed from a combination of colored blocks to create the game. This also allows tons of action to become displayed on the screen.
Characters are easily recognized through particular player models and the frame rate generally stays very smooth. The original loading of a level might take a few extra seconds, but the game never needs to load once it’s going.
Audio in the game is all about keeping up the tempo. Honestly, you might forget about the music once you’re blowing up everything you see, but it will provide an excellent support for each stage. The sound effects in each degree are amazing, as weapons all have specific sounds. The explosions, however, are some of the best in any game.
Free Lives has created a great package of old school action combined with stellar sound.
Worthwhile to play early
A lot of Early Access games aren’t ready for a lot of people to play. Broforce is different . During this early stage, the core of the game is already amazing. Since Free Lives add more content and fix bugs, Broforce will only get better.
The one player of the game is solid, and the multiplayer looks like it’s going to enhance a lot before the official release.
If you like 80s action films, Broforce is a game you need to enjoy.
