Guide two brothers on an epic fairy tale journey from visionary Swedish film director, Josef Fares and top-tier developer Starbreeze Studios. Control both brothers at once as you experience co-op play in single player mode, like never before. Solve puzzles, explore the varied locations and fight boss battles, controlling one brother with each thumbstick. 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. This is one journey you will never forget.
Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons shows how a game has to look that in the absence of language the plot is able to carry on the shoulders of the characters. Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons is about the story of two brothers whose mother has already died and...
whose father is dying. From the father's doctor they learn of a special ingredient that can still heal the father and save him from the inevitable death. The two brothers then set off to explore landscapes that are so different and bubble over with the developers' love of detail that art is the only appropriate expression for the game world. I'm in the middle of playing this. What is conveyed here in emotions I recently felt in Bioshock Infinite for/by/with Elizabeth and alone this personal connection to the protagonists of the game makes it stand out from the crowd and lifts it onto a pedestal on which Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons towers above the masses. If you don't want to or can't get involved with the story, you will at least enjoy the controls, because you don't control one, but both brothers at the same time with an analog stick and the shoulder buttons. Control alone requires a certain amount of thinking, as there are many puzzles in the game that can only be solved by moving both characters simultaneously. The end and many other passages leave you speechless and pause in front of the screen - a masterpiece. No more, no less.
