    That`s the spiritual sucessor of Ico, even more than Shadow of Colossus, heartbreaking story and inovative gameplay!

    A whimsical, emotional adventure that explores the relationship of two brothers and the bond they so deeply share.

    Rated on September 07, 2013 by xXdraky

    Let me start off by saying that Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is one of the most emotional games you'll ever play. This is truly a tearjerker, and can be quite morbid at parts. From the get-go, Brother...

    While the results definitely have religious overtones, this bond of brotherhood could move a person of any belief.

    Great

    Rated on December 25, 2013 by Xtian10Angelo

    Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is a beautiful and sometimes darkly mature echo of the fairy tales that taught us about the world as children. Throughout the journey of two siblings trying to save their ...
