Brave: The Video Game
15 July 2012
Conclusion: Brave, though a game based on a movie IP, doesn't follow the horrible trend we have seen for the past decade. Like I said earlier, this is an enjoyable experience for all ages. For those who enjoyed the movie and looking for a bit more to hold them over until the DVD and blu-ray release, I recommend picking up this game.
Conclusion: SouthPeak is asking about $30 at retail for Brave: A Warrior's Tale, and though that's a substantial savings from your average Wii release, it's still about $20 too much. There's a solid adventure here, one that will offer hours of playtime, but it's far from up to snuff for this generation of games. From top to bottom, A Warrior's Tale feels like a Virtual Console game, and as such it should be priced accordingly.
Summary: Parents need to know that this action/adventure game let's kids assume the role of a young Native American warrior who is on a heroic quest to save his village. There is some fantasy violence in the game as you defeat enemies using bow and arrows and other weapons. Some enemies, like giant insects, will bleed. Unfortunately, most kids will be frustrated that camera angles block your vision of the environment in which you play.
Average movie spin-off has mild but persistent violence.

Summary: Parents need to know that Brave : The Video Game is an action/adventure video game spin-off of the movie with which it shares its name. Kids who view or play one will likely want to view or play the other. The game’s heroine is just as strong and courageous a young woman as she is in the film, though her strained relationship with her mother -- the focus of the film -- is downplayed here in favor of presenting a steady stream of battles.
Summary: An erratic and sometimes possessed camera along with ho-hum and lackluster controls really prevent this former PS2 game from shining on the Wii. The added content feels just like it is, tacked on, and really breaks up what should be a great climatic sequence in the game by hitting the breaks and basically running you through a bunch of hoops all over again.
Excerpt: You can tell that Brave: A Warrior's Tale has aspirations to be a pretty game, but the execution falls pretty far from that. Characters are blocky and look as if they've had a few too many bee stings to the face. Environments are often a boring, blocky expanse of the same texture and color. More confusing is the fact that the scale of the environment seems gigantic. Is this supposed to be a game about Lilliputian Native Americans? The graphics have other problems.
Summary: I don’t know, I just can’t recommend this game to anyone. I mean; I had an all right time playing through the middle portion of the game. You could relate this game to one of my buddy’s Halo skills; Terrible in the beginning and end, but decent between 3 and 6 beers. The graphics are very dated, the game play is repetitious and you don’t get a lot of content for your money.
Excerpt: Platforming action video games have been around since the dawn of gaming way back in the proverbial day. Just about every developer in the world has made an attempt to create a new game of this age-old genre. Many have tried, many have failed and despite that, the genre is far from dead. In this latest effort, Collision Studios tried their best to create a child-friendly experience not entirely unlike the Zelda series. At least, not on paper.
