Excerpt: "Brute Force on visuaalisesti hieno toimintapläjäys höystettynä tiimityöskentelyllä. Peli kaatuu kuitenkin pääosin itseään toistavaan suoraviivaiseen ja paikotellen melko puuduttavaan pelattavuuteen, eikä pelin suhteellisen pitkiä tehtäviä jaksakaan kovin montaa kerrallaan lävitse tahkota. Pieninä annoksina ihan kivaa aivotonta räimettä, yhden taikka useamman kaverin kanssa pelattuna meno paranee hieman.
Pros: + Grafiikka, + Kontrollit ja käyttöliittymä, + Kelvollinen tekoäly
Excerpt: \'Well, it sure took \'em long enough to get this one out.\' That\'s my most coherent thought as I\'m sitting here writing this review. I just beat a very fun, highly anticipated game called Brute Force. This little gem\'s been in development for quite a while; I believe it was announced way back when the Xbox first came out. Yep, it\'s been a couple of years of waiting for us Xboxers. But it was worth it. But first, a little side note.
Conclusion: Although I run the risk of sounding like a total fanboy, I have to say Brute Force is the best game I have picked up since Halo, and I honestly find myself enjoying it enough to give me a hard time deciding which I prefer. Halo is a killer game, it’s just not the same type of game, so comparing the two and saying which is better is probably not really even fair.
Summary: Brute Force is a very good third person action\shooter, sure it has it's downfalls with computer A.I and some areas of the graphics and sound could have been a little more polished but ultimately BF is about killing everything that steps in your way, the attempt at strategy is lost most of the time because the sheer amount of action can lead to you forgetting and ignoring the strategy aspects. It's an excellent game and definitely worth adding to your XBox game library.
Excerpt: Said to be the Next Halo, delayed over and over again, was it worth the wait or was it just to hype us up with Microsoft pulling another one on us. Thats for you to decide but read on for details and more on Brute Force.
Excerpt: When Brute Force burst onto the market, it had been preceded by pre-release hype pointed towards comparing the game favorably to Halo , a first-person shooter and one of the Xbox’s premiere titles. In many ways, Brute Force , a third-person shooter, resembles, but doesn’t come close, to the compelling gameplay, graphic diversity, incredible level design, and story involvement of Halo .
Excerpt: In Brute Force , players are given a team of four specialized troops which they must use to work as a team to complete their mission, hopefully with all four of the members coming back alive. But, even if they do die, they can just be recloned to go onto the next mission or even to restart the current mission if your whole team gets wiped out.
Pros: Team based action is pretty good, Nice audio and visual package, Mutliplayer and co-op gameplay
Cons: Ally A.I. needs a little refinement, Some repetitive environments, No Xbox Live online modes

Excerpt: After months of hype, Digital Anvil's Brute Force arrives on the XBox. But is it everything it's supposed to be? Not quite. Questionable teamwork, glaring holes in multiplayer modes, and some gameplay issues keep Brute Force from being the game we hoped for.
