    Brothers: A Scandinavian fairytale game

    Being a Scandinavian I feel a desire to play any game that draws inspiration from our regional folklore and culture. Especially when it is the frame of the setting, and not the main point of the story.And so I found myse... Read Full Review

    Beautiful game

    There should be more games like this one. Beautiful story with stunning scenery. The puzzles were not too difficult nor repetitive. A couple of scenes may not be appropriate for younger children. I almost did not buy it ... Read Full Review

    A tragedy filled with beauty and a delight for the little things.

    Brothers: A Tale of Two sons checks off a lot of boxes on my list of things that make a great game: innovative gameplay, great storytelling, gorgeous visuals and a good soundtrack. Controlling both brothers at once is th... Read Full Review

    [8.5] A Tale of Two Sons is everything that makes for a profound narrative-focused game.

    Many of the finest narrative-focused games contain an involved plot with carefully developed characters and well-written dialogue to top it all off. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons undoubtedly concentrates on its story; aft... Read Full Review

    Surprisingly great game - One of the sadness story ever told in a game

    First of all, I want to thank Sony again for giving free great game. I am a Plus member and I do not consider (as many think) that Plus cost should include game for free. One reason I rather PS over Xbox. Back to the ga... Read Full Review
