About Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons

About this game

Embark on a journey you will never forget with atmospheric adventure Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons. With this Steam PC key, you'll guide two brothers - Naia and Naiee - on an epic fairy tale journey from award-winning Swedish film director Josef Fares, and top-tier developer Starbreeze Studios.

A man, clinging to life. His two sons, desperate to cure their ailing father, are left with but one option. They must set out upon a journey to find and bring back the 'Water of Life' as they come to rely on one another to survive.

One must be strong where the other is weak, brave where the other is fearful, they must be... Brothers.

AS ONE
Control both brothers at once as you experience co-op gameplay in single-player mode, controlling one brother with each thumbstick.

UP TO THE TASK
Use each of the brothers' traits to help solve puzzles, explore the varied locations and fight boss battles. Choose Naia to help pull levers and lift his younger brother to higher spaces, while Naiee can be used to crawl through hard to reach areas to gain access.

Just an awesome concept, game play mechanics, and artistic creativity. Some of the turns and scenes that the plot takes you too seem like a strange choice (darker than I would have imagined for a kids game) and I do wish there would be a two controller co-op play option, but still well worth a play through.

While I can somewhat understand why people like this game so much it is not a clear recommendation from me. If there was an option to rate the game as "neutral" I'd do that. The game looks very nice and there is a good variety of "puzzles", things to do, things to interact with. You journey through a variety of bioms and different parts of the world, it really does seem like long way you are going. The story starts out somewhat nice but is only depressing towards the end. It is not the bittersweet ending it could have been, sadly. The brothers are also very annoying to control at the same time, sometimes you accidentally drop the wrong one, etc. And walking, especially with the moving camera, is HELL sometimes. This is the second time I played this game, it was okay. The first time wasn't so nice, as my bf reminded me. We played it together on PS4, which I completely repressed tbh, and I hated the end so much that he had to compelete it himself. Playing it again, I kind of see why I was so frustrated lol. All in all, the game is okay. But not worth 15 bucks imo as one playthrough only takes about 3 hours...
