    This is a fairy tale of "hope" and two brothers will bring the weight to the end.

    Sense of wonder, emotions and clever approach make for an overall brilliant game that goes well beyond its technical limits.

    Brothers is a beautiful tale of love and loss. A marvelous adventure that will hit your heart.

    Enchanting and unique, this is a very welcome new member of the PS4 family.

    The worldless storytelling is some of the most compelling of the year and the purposefully frustrating control system an outrageously daring experiment.

    The best way to play the game on consoles and it's very much worth playing if you're yet to experience it.

    Style and emotions remain deliciously unchanged, yet this re-release on current generation consoles isn't exactly a luxurious one (and it's even pricier than before...).

    Puzzle game with no dialog, and yet, it got very emotional. It's probably my favorite game of all time.

    This game is a story telling master piece. First, lets talk about the beauty of this game. It looks gorgeous, and I believe it could competeThis game is a story telling master piece. First, lets talk about the beauty of this game. It looks gorgeous, and I believe it could compete with 2019 graphics. Now the story is well made. It focuses on the two sons (Brothers) and doesn't drift away from there story too much. Now there still is a story with their mother, and father, but it emotionally ties in with the brothers frustration and depression. I could awe about the story line all day, but theirs also some neat mechanics within each chapter of the game that gives brothers a unique taste. One other thing I like about Brothers is its co-op when playing with people. Doing puzzles with Friends or Family is very fun.
    I hope you buy this game, it would be a very pleasant experience with friends, and family, or just as a standalone experience.

    Interesting idea and concept. Even though there is no words in the game you can still get attached to these characters. And what a unique wayInteresting idea and concept. Even though there is no words in the game you can still get attached to these characters. And what a unique way to play the game with both joysticks. Also the length was great and it didn't overstay its welcome. Expand

    A fun and emotionally intense game. The controls can be a bit messy at times, but for the most part, it's a great experience.

    Very predictable story and not a lot of game play. I was quite disappointed with this one.
