    Not sure which I like better, PC, PSX or N64. The game is pretty neat though!
    It is easy for me to post some more N64/PSX screens of all baddies.
    The PC version is harder since one has to manually play through all the levels...

    There is a PC version of this game? I thought it has only PS and N64.

    By the way, I like the JPN version box art of this game :ORLY:

    GREAT box art! I especially love how Smasher looks!
    I haven't tried looking up any JPN footage of the game,
    so that is something for me to put my teeth in.

    I saw someone posted a request for this on the forum somewhere.
    I'll add some screens of Fighting Force here whenever I can.
    Perhaps I can also try the PSX version, though I am not sure if that version
    has different sprites than the N64 or PC version.

    EDIT: I tried the PSX version, it has the somewhat different graphics than the PC version.

    I've always wanted the PC version! Where did you find it? I wanted it assuming the graphics might be different, and the different zako names (really!)

    Great screens by the way. I've always loved the game and spent a huge amount of time with these ladies. Definitely important in finding out what I like. I always liked how much sluttier (for lack of a better word) the girls appear than the two heroines, for example. I would love to see a true 'HD' remake of this game.

    I must admit, I'm not huge on the N64 version. From my experience, lots of the sounds were removed (when the zako are hit, they don't moan/groan etc and stay silent) and there were some other niggles such as not being able to stay grabbed when playing as Mace or Hawk with their repeatable attacks. Also, there is no blood. It's somewhat tamer than the PSX version. There are various other differences also, such as a few gameplay tweaks and different soundtrack. It isn't worse, just down to preference I suppose.

    I use to love this game in the day. It doesn't hold up nearly as well these days, but it's still one of the more passable 3d beat'm ups out there.

    Definitly, I agree with both DynamiteFetish and Soviet_Missile, though I do think the appearance of the zako henchwomen in-game is the best of the genre. A HD remake of the game would be even better, but I would be pleased to see any game in which one can hold and throw zako in scuba-diving outfit.

    BTW. The PC version is available online, I doubt there are any actual hardcopies circulating there these days. You will also need the XP Patch, besides the CD. Feel free to PM for help.

    I took the time of taking some more screenshots.

    High quality goodness. I also tried getting some screens of the lovely female scuba divers. However the frame rate of my recording was disastrous...
    Also, the camera angle on the hovercraft mission is not working out so well. Maybe I can reclaim some frames with some of my other software.
    We'll see what happens next time

    Apparently there was a lackluster sequel unsurprisingly called 'Fighting Force 2'.

    Any info on female mooks in this title?

    I haven't played it for a while but it's like a cross between the first and Tomb Raider. The demo had a level featuring female mooks. Think bitchy Amazon chicks with bladed sticks. I liked the way they would idle whilst you fight with their (male and female) comrades etc. I am pretty sure there's more from reading old FAQs, so now I have an excuse to play and record the game.

    Fighting Force 2 Female Mooks

    The female mooks are just as bad as the game itself. If I recall, you don't see the first female enemy until the fifth stage, and the second one is on the last stage. Their attacks are exactly the same: swing the weapon and kick.
