    Synopsis


    When two young boys' father falls ill and clings to life, they are left with only one option — to set out to find and acquire the Water of Life that will help save their patriarch. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is an epic fairy-tale journey from Starbreeze Studios with film director, Josef Fares, that sends the young lads on an adventure where they need to rely on one another to survive. Control both brothers at the same time, as each one is operated by your controller's thumbsticks. Navigate the immersive locations, engage in boss battles and solve puzzles. In this partnership where one must be strong when the other is weak, brave where the other is fearful, they must be brothers.

      Different kind of game

      This is a pretty cool game. The story line is really good. The language spoken in this game is a made up language drawing off bits of Arabic and other languages, but the story is very clear nonetheless. A touching and moving game. There's only one difficulty setting. As a result it's not incredibly challenging. The most challenging aspect of this game is that you control both characters (Brothers) at once using the right and left analog sticks. This can lead to a lot of lost lives if you're not very attentive to coordination during jumps and climbing. Though this was quite frustrating at some points it still gets 5 stars. Beautiful landscapes and a great story.

      I really enjoyed this game. The graphics and music are nothing but amazing. There is a great storyline to the game. The game isn't very long, but all things considered it's a great buy. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a nice game that is not overwhelmed with violence. The game itself is challenging considering you have to control both brothers at the same time. Each side of the controller will control one brother so you must understand the coordination of moving and functioning each brother with each side of the controller.

      The game is very short, and the story is quite simple, but very well told along with some great animation and visuals, with just enough little dark undertones in the story and visuals to keep you interested. The game play is a new challenge, that even when learned, will remain a challenge when you're not concentrated on it. Very happy I got to experience this game!

      I bought this game for my children who are 8 and 9. It's not too challenging for them where it will turn them off. It has a grand adventure feel to it with a touching story and many great sceneries. Both my son and daughter enjoyed it.

      I like the idea of strategic gameplay with the two brothers helping each other in puzzles to get through the environment. Controls are a little clunky but it keeps my interest and I enjoy it for the most part

      Beat the game in one afternoon, but it kept me interested (clearly). A simple adventure game. The controls were confusing at times but after a little hand-eye coordination it really is enjoyable!

      If you like to try a different type of game, you need to play this games. Great puzzles, awesome history, you control the 2 brother with one Controller (each joystick control one brother)
