The lights are on
Brawlers were in their prime back in the 16-bit era, but the genre seemed to stall a bit once the industry shifted to 3D gaming. Despite the lull, Eidos and Core attempted to emulate the beat-em-up heyday with the 3D Fighting Force. All of the genre standbys (eating food off the ground, beating up environmental objects, swarms of similarly-named baddies) were present, including co-op play.

I used to love this game when I was younger but another great replay episode thanks.
O man, its in 3D!. Great replay.
Oh I used to play this with my friends, it was super fun

Loved that referee, the whole second half was AMAZING. I used to love Fighting Force when I was younger. Does not hold up at all.
I miss this game
I love a good replay

Fine choice, I had some good times with Fighting Force. Not exactly Streets of Rage, but still!
Part 2 kind of confused me, though.
I wish they weren't so bad! I think it holds up just fine!
