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.
Watch below to see Tim and I bash faces in while playing as Hawk and Smasher.

I think Brawlers can come back if done correctly. I hope someone sees that and does.
Cut to commercial!

Great replay, would like to see some of the Smackdown games on future episodes especially Here Comes The Pain.
Sorry but fighting game replays are definitely not my thing.
I remember renting out this game a lot when I was younger. It's awesome seeing this in a Replay episode.
Do Blast Corps!
That was amazing
This Fighting Force game actually looks really good! Great choice for Replay, Tim was hilarious in it. The Reported game choice was really unique and different. Really enjoyed seeing that as well. Great job on the Replay.
I actually played this game yesterday : )
