What do players say about FORCED?

If you a looking for a couch coop game, this one is the best or one of the best. Levels include increasingly challenging puzzle and hack n slash level. Some levels are almost purely slow puzzly levels, some are fast paced fighting levels and rest are some combination of those two. Game mechanics are simple and are introduced sufficiently smoothly so you don’t feel overwhelmed. Later on these mechanics are combined in various ways and the game never feels boring.

Biggest con for this game would be that its not a single-player game. You can play it alone ,but its not even half the fun.

So if you are looking for a coop game to have fun with your friends this game is for you.

Highly recommended for any Co-OP experience. This game is quite fun with a lot of potential for growth in the future. 9/10 for what it is, and for my experience

I really owe this game a review. I’ve had more fun with this playing with friends than any other game. No other game has permitted me to talk at such loud levels to the people sitting next to me (…)
Games are fun, but to me this one was an experience. One I could share with some good friends.

Forced is absolutely brutal, requiring constant team communication, clever problem solving and the mastery of combat skills. It can be an incredible amount of fun and is highly recommended for any group of gamer friends. This game pleasantly surprised me: simple in concept, but with an incredible amount of depth to it. I can’t stress enough how much fun Forced is when you’ve got even just one other player. It’s a smartly designed cooperative action game with a great variety in its challenges, and a great combat system that encourages teamwork over all else. Forced is an honest cooperative RPG with some good ideas suitable for 3 or 4 players, but a hard nut to crack for lone wolves. Playing solo is oftentimes more frustrating than fun. However if you’re itching for a hardcore co-op action experience, then you’ve struck gold with Forced.
