Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons was released last Wednesday as part of this year's Summer of Arcade and here are a bunch of videos of the game. From the different comments you can read online, it seems Starbreeze's latest title hasn't managed to convince everyone. As far as we're concerned, we are totally under its spell. Although the controls sometimes make it hard to do what you want, the gameplay mechanics are pretty unique: both character can actually be controlled simultaneously with the two analog sticks. The game's puzzles are quite easy to tackle but they make a good use of the "play co-op on your own" idea. We also love the feeling conveyed by the environments and the atmosphere itself, each - optional - encounter giving the striking impression that the world you're discovering is full of life and interactions. The story is dark though and can even be moving at times, making this new downloadable title a short but unforgettable experience, for us at least. What about you?

In at just over the halfway mark and I've come away far more impressed than I thought possible for a game of this type, and it's for reasons you don't expect. Looks to be a short game but at this stage I don't think I'm going to mind. It's also better I think to just play it rather than read anything about it before hand. Some things are about the memories they create

Been looking forward to this for awhile. Will have to pick it up when it hits in Sept.

    GriftGFX I mean they can keep upgrading it but why bother when they have more capable engines already. (7 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it shows its age in a lot of ways in FC5 and they have better tech so they should use it. (7 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth if they still pay royalties to crytech when using it they probably should (7 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Although I think it's kinda time to retire Dunia. (7 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @HR2: a lot of studios used modified UE3, games like Arkham Knight, XCom2, both being very problematic on pc. Interesting to see what those studios will do for their next games. (7 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @HR2: Ubisoft uses their own engines. They have like.. three solid in house game engines. (7 Hours ago)
  • HR2
    HR2 @Melmoth: agreed. speaking of Ubisoft, I wonder which engine they're using for the next Splinter Cell. a heavily modified UE3 like Batman AK or UE4? (7 Hours ago)
