After finishing the too-long campaign, there's an Ironbro mode (where each Bro only has one life) and a level editor to tinker with. It seems robust, but I didn't spend much time with it. This all adds up to a decent amount of bro-time if you really want it, but I'm fairly certain whoever you play this with will end up being a not-bro for a little while. Broforce could have been a fun "Hoo-rah 'Murica" romp, but it comes with artificial difficulty and bugs that aren't worth dealing with.
Fine-tuned visuals and audio serve to make its patriotic bent all the more entertaining, and even though performance issues knock the game down a peg for now, there's not much else that keeps this guilty pleasure of a game from resounding triumphantly like fireworks on the Fourth of July.
It's unfortunate that Broforce suffers some technical issues as it really does a lot to prevent a good game becoming a great one. When everything clicks, Broforce is a murderous symphony of perfectly orchestrated destruction, but on those occasions where the game falters, the music stops for a moment, leaving you to lament the silence of disappointment. Then it blares into life once more and all is right in Broforce’s freedom-fightin’ world again.
