Fighting Force had the potential of a great beat'em up game
, but it suffered the same problems as Final Fight Streetwise, which was released years after this game. The game looks unimpressive, the gameplay feels nothing more than a mindless button masher and the lack of music makes it a boring game. In the game, you get to play as one of four characters
and your job is to move around the city and beat up some bad guys
. There are some parts when you have a choice of territories to go through, which in theory should raise the replay value, but the other elements of the game make the replay stay at absolute ZERO. Each of the four characters have a different reason to take down the game's protagonist, Dr. Zeng, but to be honest, I didn't even care. The gameplay is downright terrible. There is no strategy involved, making the game to feel like a button masher, the enemies aren't that challenging and some aspects, such as aiming a gun, feel broken. The graphics are ugly, while other games that are on 2D
had better graphics, and the music...well, there is no music at all! Really?! Doesn't everybody know that music sometimes plays an important role in beat'em up games? That draw the line for. I shut off the game after completing the first level and I wasn't even satisfied with the game. Bottom line, go play Final Fight
or Golden Axe
, but stay away from this game!
