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.
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.
Excerpt: Brave: A Warrior’s Tale is the sequel to a similarly titled game on the Playstation 2. If this latest iteration of the series is any indicator, they probably should have quit with the first one while they were ahead. It is not acceptable to make a bad game under the guise that it is meant for children, because I doubt even small children could get through this game psychologically unscathed.
Excerpt: I know a bad game when I see one or play one. It didn't take very much playing to figure out that Brave: A Warrior's Tale was one of these types of games. From the outdated last-generation graphics to the voice work that was seemingly hired off the street, Brave does not hold up well against other platformers on the Xbox 360 and Wii. Read on to find out what you are not missing by avoiding this game.
Excerpt: Il y a de ces jeux qu'on aurait vraiment eu envie d'aimer mais qui ont malheureusement tout fait pour que nous ressentions l'extrême opposé à leur égard. Brave : A Warrior's Tale en fait partie. Remake de Brave : The Search for Spirit Dancer paru sur PlayStation 2 qui n'avait pas marqué grand monde à sa sortie en 2005, nous revoilà plongés dans la peau d'un jeune amérindien pour vivre une aventure pas franchement palpitante...
Summary: Ein Indianer kennt ja bekanntlich keinen Schmerz. Es sei denn, er donnert mit seinem Kanu viermal gegen die Klippen. Dann geht die Rothaut unter. Genau wie ihr Spiel. Das heißt übrigens Brave: A Warrior's Tale. Das gab's vor Jahren schon mal für die PlayStation 2, und jetzt für die Xbox 360. Und es ist schlecht. So richtig.
Pros: gute deutsche Sprecher, einfache Steuerung, Kampfsystem mit Nah- und Fernkampf sowie Magie
Cons: eckige Modelle, schwache Kulisse, Kameraprobleme, schwache Animationen, oft nutzlose Minimap, Kampfsystem ohne Wumms, Grafik- und Clipping-Fehler
