Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons - Game of the Week
“Guide two brothers on an epic fairy tale journey from visionary Swedish film director, Josef Fares and top-tier developer Starbreeze Studios. Control both brothers at once as you experience co-op play in single player mode, like never before.”
You play as two brothers who have lost their mother and are on a quest to get the curse to save their father.
Beautifully rendered this game is visually stunning! The game can be forgiven for some clunky motion animations because of it’s rich vibrant graphic style.
It takes a bit of getting used to controlling both brothers at once but it’s a nice dynamic. You must complete and solve some basic puzzles to get around and many of them rely on you to switch between characters as somethings are just too hard for the little brother to do.
It’s odd playing a game that doesn’t have any real narrative and it makes some things a bit more complex than they need to be but don’t let that put you off for one second!
As you progress the puzzles become more challenge and in some sections remind us of the great tomb raider puzzles but one thing is for sure, each one of them is fun to solve.
You’ll meet Weird and wonderful friends along the way as well as reunite families and take on bad guys! However, your journey will not prepare you for what is really in store.
