best value game I ever bought on steam!
and I've bought a lot of them...from crappy "indie" titles that people rave about just to be trendy, to big titles for near $100...
This game "Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons" would be the best value ever, for its modest $15. In particular if you have kids and you're looking for that elusive game that you can play with them, that makes them think a bit, but also that adults can enjoy too - this is it. Gorgeous graphics, atmospheric sound. Decent puzzles and an engaging story.
sounds like a chessy review? well, so be it. I have no links to the game, and i don't usually take the time to comment this way on games or any other products for that matter. but once in a while I feel I got such a great product, I owe the positive feedback. Someone put huge time and effort into this. you can tell how much they wanted it to be good.
yes - the game's probably only playable once, but thats cool. if it gives me a few hours quality time with my kid, then $15 for one play through is fine by me.
in saying that, i really hope there's downloadable content later, another story etc..etc.. that would be awesome.
EDIT - the above was written when I was probably about 1/3 through the game, now that i've finished it, (and as others have suggested) this might not be suitable for younger kids. My opinion of the game's value (even at full $15 price) remains though. Its brilliant. Just excercise discretion and supervision with the young-uns. Cheers.
