Brute Force is an early western-developed arcade-exclusive beat 'em up from Leland with a classic urban setting. It plays like a watered-down Double Dragon with far fewer attacks, enemies, and bosses. However, it does have plenty of weapons and even guns. It's mainly notable for its extensive use of voice-overs, not to mention its goofy rap intro.
This is the very first brawler to feature a rap intro, although B. Rap Boys would also have one years later.
The characters in this game are named Krush, Buzz, and Snake.
Brute Force isn't the very worst brawler, but it is pretty bad. Although it's combat is functional, it's also shallow and puts a little too much emphasis on weapons. Its graphics are awful, especially the miniature sprites. The sound puts far too much emphasis on voice-overs that might have been impressive for the time but are super annoying now.
