    If you have already played the game, you won't find anything new here. If you haven't, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is one of those special titles everyone should, at least, try.

    Loses [10 points] for being essentially the same game as on last-gen, but this is nonetheless a unique adventure that tugs on the heartstrings as much as the analogue sticks. [Nov 2015, p.78]

    Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is a remarkable game. Even with the frustrating controls, Starbreeze Studios has managed to craft a superb puzzle-adventure game with mature themes, while still capturing those crucial moments that makes the relationship between two young brothers special.

    If you played it already on a older system, the playthrough video with the director’s commentary is the only thing new to you. But it is worth the full admission price tag? Not really. If you missed out on the thoughtfully crafted adventures of the siblings, this is the version to get, though.

She uses the right joystick and right trigger and i use the left joystick and left trigger, I walked the game through on my own first so that I knew how to help her,.

    It's so good. It is short but it's long enough. The mechanic at the end is incredible and it's amazing to see gameplay used emotionally. VeryIt's so good. It is short but it's long enough.

Highly effective story that just wouldn't have had anything like the same impact had they gone the 'other' way. Expand

    Oh la la, ça va pleurnichiarder (de : pleurnicher et : chiard) dans les chaumières des joueurs indés, très prompts à se tirer la virgule surOh la la, ça va pleurnichiarder (de : pleurnicher et : chiard) dans les chaumières des joueurs indés, très prompts à se tirer la virgule sur les jeux indés trop frais pleins d'émossion et de pôôézie...

    Pensez donc (ou essayez), deux frérots dont la môman est morte et dont le pôpa est sur le point de claquer, alors les deux chiards vont chercher un rémède et partent à l'aventure... enfin, c'est ce que l'on suppose vu qu'ils baragouinent une langue fictive sortie d'on ne sait où.

    Evidemment comme c'est frais, la jouabilité est fraîche, très fraîche elle aussi puisqu'il faut contrôler les deux trizos en même temps avec les joysticks et les gâchettes analogiques gauches pour l'un et droites pour l'autre, sans doute parce que l'un vote à droite et l'autre vote à gauche. Ou l'inverse. Bref, faut être un poulpe pour diriger une merde pareille.

    La musique pleurnichiante est à s'ouvrir les veines (émossion, t"entends !) et les graphismes (pourtant en Unreal 3) sont en 256 couleurs, le tout boulotté à la va-vite (tu la sens la pöézie, là ?).

    Et ils le "vendent" ce truc-là, c'est fou, c'est fou ! et y a même pas de Perrier.
