When Broforce won PS+ vote to play, I was excited and eager to play it. What I got was not what I was expecting.

Broforce is like a cross between Contra and Spelunky done as an adaptation of The Expendables. You play as characters such as Rambro, Commanbro, Bro Hard and the Brodator ( you can see where this is going) among others, and use their abilities to kill the bad guys, cause lots of explosions and carnage and rescue your friends. For the first few levels, this is a fun game and it seemed fine even if the controller stopped working right every so often. I thought I could handle it…..How wrong I was.

Broforce on PS4 is completely broken, the controller has massive input delay and sometimes won’t respond at all, which can lead to dying in a jump, dying walking into enemy fire, or just not shooting your weapon. It gets worse as you progress with slowdown and framerate drops into single digits. The further I got, the more unplayable it was. It eventually got to the point that I gave up in frustration and stopped playing.

I wanted to like this game, since on PC this is one of the best games I ever played. On PS4 however, its still broken after a patch tried to fix it. I would say get it while its free on PS+ and wait till it gets fixed. I would not pay money for it in its current form. The fun factor that is present in the early levels completely fades a few levels in. I wanted this to be good and even voted for it and I regret that.  This needs another patch or two before it will be anywhere near playable. It just is a bad experience really, and I feel bad for people who are experiencing this for the first time and don’t realize what a good game this actually is on PC. As of now, this game isn’t really Broforce, its more like Brokeport.
