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?
... I can't even think of what they want. Maybe expecting CoH or AoE or even a Starcraft like game, but it's not even trying to be a strategy game like that. (2 Hours ago)
@rayy: I think so. If I hit on something later in the game that I haven't gotten to yet I'll let you know, but so far I don't see any control flaws. (2 Hours ago)
If you took the sword work and handling from Witcher and put it in Skyrim, you have the ultimate game in that genre. Mods made Skyrim in my opinion; vanilla was stunted outside of stealth backstabbery (2 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Both games in my eyes had spotty combat. I played W3 for its story and life. As for Skyrim, the vanilla version of the game felt bland without the mods. (5 Hours ago)
And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (5 Hours ago)
I get that you think Skyrim is crap, but The Witcher 3 aint "a good version of Skyrim" because they have totally different goals. TW3 doesn't even attempt half the systems that Skyrim does. (5 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: Nah, that's *really* not all there is to it. You're comparing a broken apple with a poorly designed orange. (5 Hours ago)
