  1. Whether you live to jump or not, if you can stifle your inner graphics goblin long enough to get a sense of what Brave has to offer, you might be surprised at just how engaging a well-polished PS2 port can be on 360. If only there could have been a 360 or PS3 version, Brave might have soared considerably higher.
  2. Brave is obviously designed with children new to gaming in mind, but even they shouldn’t tolerate this glitchy mess. There’s a pretty good game here, hiding amongst the bugs, graphical issues, and poorly designed platforming sequences. It’s called Brave: Search for Spirit Dancer, and you can find it for a very reasonable price for the PS2.
  3. Brave: A Warrior's Tale for the Xbox 360 is a game only recommended for children who are just picking up gaming.
  4. I love the concepts, story, and gameplay ideas behind Brave but they just aren’t executed in a fashion that is remotely playable or enjoyable, especially if you have played anything better.
  5. From the glitchy programming, the poor graphical quality, a camera that never listens to the player, and horrific level design, Brave: A Warrior’s Tale is an incomplete product.
  6. 30
    Brave is basically a PS2 game with the ability to play on a 360 with no effort to upgrade or enhance the experience to even to average standards.
  7. Our disgust was solidified near the end of the six-hour campaign, as the PS2 version's final boss fight is astonishingly cut short to insert an hour-plus of new fetch quests. We understand padding the game a bit, but lazily dumping these bland challenges within seconds of what should have been the conclusion shows a total disregard for the players who slogged through hours of sloppy programming to get to that point. And if the developer doesn't care, neither should we.
