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.
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.
Every now and then, appears a game that brings something new to the gaming society, something different than the other concurrent, rather replicating, sets of games. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is one of those games. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons has an epic, faerie tale-like story, filled with mythological concepts and emotional moments, mainly discussing the story of two orphan brothers making a journey to find a cure for their sick father, with an exceptional demonstration of the bond between the old and the young brother, and how every single one of them is taking care of each other. the story is combined with stunning visuals and great music, but the most distinctive aspect of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, beside the great story, is the gameplay, which requires you to take control of the two brothers simultaneously, and coordinate between them to be able to solve the simple, yet creative, puzzles. Another aspect of this game that must be mentioned is the relying on gestures rather than spoken language to communicate with the characters ( they do speak some imaginary gibberish language), and this gives a theatrical value to the game, and makes you really feel that this game is in fact, a work of art. I understand this game may not be for every one, but for true gamers, I think this is a must have.
Few games can call themselves art. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is one of those. This emotional adventure game uses the gameplay to tell a poignant coming of age story set in a minimalist yet beautiful world. Completed with an absolutely gorgeous art and great soundtrack, it's an incredible experience that worth your time.
