    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.

    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...).

    I give a 10, it isn't the best game ever but within it's genre it is the best I have played. Journey and Flower being rated above this isI give a 10, it isn't the best game ever but within it's genre it is the best I have played. Journey and Flower being rated above this is beyond me, I haven't played Rime yet to compare. It is like both of these games except for a number of things: It isn't boring, the game looks nicer, sounds nicer, story more emotional, slightly longer, more fun, easy controls and camera. Yes the camera is awkward every blue moon but nothing that spoils it. It is a short game but considering God of War is 30 hours, I got bored after 1, or 2 hours and traded it in. From bad camera to annoying controls and cringy voice acting, it cost me about £22.50 an hour for 2 boring hours. This Brothers game lasted 3-4 hours, was very satisfying and free with a trial of PSNow. There was something odd and I don't know if it is just the version I played but the language was all foreign without subs. This didn't affect the game as dialogue was very little and obvious what was being said but it seemed weird having no translation at all. It was nice to meet friendly beasts and creatures along with the bad ones, scenery was fantastic, especially towards the end. It is a great concept having one half of the controler per character. I thought the whole control system was incredibly simple but clever and still engaging. Puzzles are simple and help keep the game moving at a steady pace making a great balance between story and cut scenes and gameplay. Just a great game worth your time and money. Expand

The story is simplistic, and the dialogue is in a sort of fictional foreign language. Yet it's very easy to follow the plot, which progresses and actually becomes more and more fascinating.

    The story is very well-done and emotionally driven. I won't spoil any more about it, you just gotta play it. good game, could be longer....but well done.

BallaBrothers - a Tale of Two Sons, PS4 version è una bella storia triste di legami e perdite. L' amore fraterno nel dolore e nella speranza. Balla la grafica e il design dei Troll, cascate, montagne, foreste, cimiteri e fuochi accesi. C'è tutto ed è molto godibile e semplice come leggere una Fiaba. Consigliato a chi ama la natura e le storie in stile fiabesco. Expand

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