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.

    Megido It's fascinating how Nintendo always make like 3 copies of everything, especially when it's super in demand. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Why can't retailers keep doing pre-orders, anyway? (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They need to do a better job at meeting demand too. How are people supposed to keep interest in a thing they can't buy? (5 Hours ago)
