19 June 2014
Excerpt: When Max enters his room and finds his younger brother Felix playing with his toys…again, he loses his temper and even makes a wish that he didn’t even have a brother.

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood Review: Saving your kin, one marker stroke at a time
16 January 2014
Excerpt: Little brothers are the worst right?! Annoying, loud, always want to play with your gadgets, and most of the time they wind up breaking them. Max understands this frustration, and the annoyance of brothers provides the premise for this gorgeous 2.5D platformer. Max is most likely going through some teen angst, and takes out his frustration on his annoying little brother. By chanting some sort of incantation, his brother gets whisked away into another universe.
Excerpt: Is Max: Curse of Brotherhood the killer platformer you need to have on the Xbox One, or is it one you should shun off to another dimension and leave it to be forgotten. Check out our video review to find out!
Excerpt: Max: The Curse of Brotherhood feels like an iOS game that wound up on a console without the proper adjustments. Using his magic marker, Max must draw a variety of shapes which turn into objects for puzzle solving, but the right analog stick makes for a cumbersome tool. When you’re being chased by a monster or trying to escaping rising lava, you’ll frantically fumble to approximate a shape within the time limit. It’s the frustrating control scheme that’s the real curse.
Conclusion: For what it is, Max: The Curse of Brotherhood is a charming, yet rather restrictive 2D, puzzle-platformer. Despite its limited scope, lack of replayability and depth, there’s some fun to be had here, if only for a while.
Summary: Max: The Curse of Brotherhood is een prima arcadespel met een leuke insteek qua puzzels. Je tekent namelijk je eigen pilaren, lianen en waterstromen en door die elementen op slimme wijze te combineren kun je de puzzels oplossen. Zelf kun je niet vechten waardoor de focus echt op het platformen en puzzelen ligt. Het is dan ook jammer dat het tekenen van de elementen soms wat moeilijk is; precisie is nu eenmaal moeilijk met een .
Pros: Ziet er kleurrijk en mooi uit, Leuke mechaniek voor puzzels, Gevarieerde en uitdagende puzzels

Summary: Med Max: The Curse of Brotherhood har danske PressPlay snekret sammen et fargerikt og underholdende eventyr for hele familien. Vel, kanskje ikke for den nerdete storebroren som har rundet et titalls vriene japanske plattformspill på det mørke rommet sitt, men resten vil trolig omfavne dette sjarmtrollet av et spill.
