Oct 25, 2013It's pretty amazing how boring this game is, I'm not even sure it can be called a game, it's at best a slightly interactive movie. Sure, this style of game was fascinating back when your choices were this or jumping on turtles- but now it's a fossil that has nothing to offer. Still, it's an indie game, so guess everyone has to give it a perfect score.
Oct 30, 2013The reason this game deserves a three is due in part to its excellence: I've so much enjoyed playing through it that i absolutely want more!
In its current state however, you can easily pummel through the whole thing in about 3 hours!!!
I find that to be very dumb and as a matter of fact the developers' lack of dedication.
They've had a great idea, only to waste it in such a short, needle-length episode.
I'm really glad I got it through a discount on Steam, otherwise I'd downgrade to even a 2.

Jan 1, 2014I feel obligated to leave a review for this game, As it seems to receive almost universal pandering too by magazine critics, If your looking for a game with a deep and meaningful story this is most definitely not for you.
If you like meaningless melodramatic nonsense with tired cliches and Sims babble for speech, intersected with terrible UN-challenging puzzle mechanics reminiscent of 1990s side scrolling adventure games, Guess its visually quite pretty though. And that appears to be enough to get everyone creaming over it.… Expand
Dec 11, 2013They game was beautifully made. Contrary to popular opinion on this site, I don't think the game had much of a story. The 'puzzles' are not really muzzles, but more of mechanical gimmickries, and they do not challenge your mind at all. If you play on PC, the controls can be very frustrating, and in certain parts where you have to control both brothers at the same time, for example to push a control bar, the key combinations that give you certain movements simply make no logical sense.
$15 for 3 hours of game play that has virtually no story telling value or challenge is not worth it. Go out to movie theatre and watch a movie or go out and grab a nice dinner or something with that money.… Expand
Feb 2, 2014Internet, we've gotta have a talk about this game. Yes, beautiful graphics. Absolutely gorgeous graphics. But the linear gameplay, the boring repetitive "puzzles," the forced/melodramatic story, the flat, sim-like characters, etc. manage to suck all the life out of this thing. I seriously almost ragequit the final cutscene. Just showing characters grieving again and again != emotional depth or storytelling.… Expand
Feb 16, 2014The brothers' commitment to their goal and to each other is so strong, the various parts of this game so superbly crafted and woven together, that it's hard not to feel deeply touched when you finally reach the end of the road and see how deftly this game marries its gameplay to its themes in a way few have before.
