  • Summary: One of the best games ever, totally worth it, astonishing art, simple but innovating game-play and a really touching story, words are not enough to describe, is kinda short but is the type of games, where quality surpass quantity, give it a try! you will don't get disappointing.

  • Summary: I feel obligated to leave a review for this game, As it seems to receive almost universal pandering too by magazine critics, If your looking for a game with a deep and meaningful story this is most definitely not for you. If you like meaningless melodramatic nonsense with tired cliches and Sims babble for speech, intersected with terrible UN-challenging puzzle mechanics reminiscent of 1990s side scrolling adventure games, Guess its visually quite pretty though.

  • Summary: This is a game you play for the uniqueness of the experience. It might have frustrating controls, but its a nice breath of fresh air to see a company put out something different than the usual combat heavy games. I liked the focus on simple but satisfying puzzles, and beautiful scenery and music that marks the game throughout. This game really surprised me with the outcome of its story.

  • Summary: I had read reviews saying that this game had a great emotional story. And although the end tries to be very emotional it fails to deliver thanks to some plot holes and a somewhat forced drama. But the great problem with this game is the controls. Not only is using two tumbsticks to control tow different characters, doing two different things, somewhat awkward but the use of the triggers for action makes it very tiring and painful to play for more than an hour.

  • Summary: I recently wrapped up a 2 hour playthrough of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. I give the developers full credit for creating some astonishingly beautiful art, which truly enables the fairy tale world of the game to come to life. I was swept away by breathtaking vistas of misty valleys and snow-capped mountains, as well as some of the most gorgeous water effects I've ever seen in a video game.

  • Summary: A classic through and through. Hard to fault this game to be honest and wholly justifies it's high praise. Started and finished in one sitting just shy of 4 hours (I paced myself as I didn't want it it end). Will I play it again? Probably not for a few years at least. Even with that in mind, I highly recommend anyone give this a bash as it's worth your money and your time. Enjoy.

  • Summary: Poignant. If I had to pick a word to describe this game in a nutshell, it would be the one above. Brothers, in a shamefully short amount of time, nevertheless manages to do many things that much lengthier and more well funded games fail to do at all. It manages to invest the players in the characters and world, even though there isn't much establishment of said elements.

  • Summary: Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is a game that proves once again that you don't need ultra-long playtimes or gargantuan budgets to make a thrilling and unforgettable videogame. Beautiful to look at, fun to play, exciting, unique and innovative, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is a flat-out assault on the senses. Better still, it's emotional savagery will have you in pieces before the end.

  • Summary: What a feeling of joy and pleasure you receive when you work as a team!! As this is one of it's strong points it also occasionally gets confusing as to which player i'm controlling minus that minor bump in the road this is a must have one of the best buys from PSN!!!
