Reviews for Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons

I got something in my eye

I do not want to spoiler, [I already did it with the title (duh)] Good graphic style, very good story, great to play alone or with a partner, it is more enjoyable with a partner! 10/10

Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons

A surprisingly heart-wrenching tale with beautiful graphics, interesting control structure and a great story. I was able to control both characters with my keyboard (one with WASD, the other with arrow key pad), but it was a bit confusing at times. Once you got the hang of it though, it wasn't too bad. I am not an avid "platformer" fan, but I quite enjoyed this one!

Short but bittersweet

This game has no audible language (tho it sounds very Arabic because of the developer) but it doesn't need one for you to enjoy the gameplay and appreciate the story. I played with a controller as the game suggested and controls can prove challenging but fun since you control both brothers and have to make sure they're in sync in most of the puzzles. The story is just beautiful as you see the strong bond between these 2 brothers searching for a cure for their father. The ending made me tear up. It's very short and I did buy this during a sale, but even at full price, it's very much worth it.

Amazing experience

Brothers A Tale of Two Sons is one of the best Indie co-op games I've ever experienced. It's an adventure game with an emphasis on the story. It's presented in a really beautiful way - in every aspect it has this specific sense of a fairy tale. The graphics are colorful and look really nice - everything is like a beautiful illustration from a book. The music is remarkable. It represents the main feel of the whole game so well. When you hear the main theme at the beginning you will probably have some expectations of what's going to be happening later in the game. The story is simple and it's really easy to follow, so that's a good point. It gets very emotional at times and you will remember your playthrough for sure. I liked how the whole story is told in a fictional language and not a single actual word is used. That's an example that you don't need a language to tell a story in a truly remarkable way. I loved the gameplay - it feels like a journey in the mountain - it gets harder when you are close to the top. There are some little puzzles and challenges that make it more interesting. You can play the game in single player, but I strongly recommend playing it in co-op (you will need at least one controller for that). I think playing in co-op is the way this game is meant to be played and the best way to experience the story. So, in conclusion, the game is beautiful in every way. It's quite short, but it's definitely remarkable. It's one of these games that really get to you.

See the ending from a mile away

The graphics, soundtrack and artwork in this game were beautifully made and presented and I personally found the weird non-word communications quite entertaining, however the story forcibly tried to make you feel things. They gave you plenty of time to prepare yourself for the emotional bits because the arcs of the story were rather... cliché. Still, excluding the awkward keyboard controls, it was a sweet and endearing story told about the journey two brothers take to save their dying Father. I would recommend you play it purely to appreciate the art, but is it worth the full price? That's up for debate.
