Fighting Force 64 is the long-awaited and certainly delayed Beat em up more or less translated from the PSX to the Nintendo 64. The storyline involves Dr. Dex Zeng, of course he is an evil doctor trying to end the world hiding behind his multitude of employees. Fighting Force allows players to select from four brave warriors risking their life to save the world including Mase, a private eye seeking the truth, Hawker a vigilante who's mind is as much on Mase as saving the world, Smasher a prisoner serving multiple life terms and Alana, daughter of the evil Dr Dex who obviously is not on her father's side.
Fighting Force 64 is set over 25 distinctive 3D locations throughout seven terrifyingly dangerous levels. Locations include bridges, the bronx, offices, lift, subways, streets, slums, car parks, police emergency zones etc. Enemies range from in-suit business men, security guards, leathered chicks, street punks and toughs and thugs just to name a few of the more common enemies. Weapons also come in large numbers, as often players will be able to pick up rather useful tools just lying around or claim them after pulverizing their head into the asphalt. Weapons include pistols, shotguns, bazookas, knifes, bottles, baseball bats, pipes, tires, trashcans, fire axes etc.
Players are also faced with a point system, where bonus points can be awarded from smashing up each location's interactive scenery. Police cars, trucks, vans, doors, vending machines and other objects are often interactive. Special health can also be collected, while bonus points can also be collected in the form of gold, silver and cash. Also enter in two-player co-operative battles taking on the enemies with a friend by your side.
Fighting Force developed by Core and published on the N64 by Crave Entertainment also supports memory cards for saves (though my third party card was playing up) and shock devices for feedback. ~ Brad Penniment, All Game Guide
