Review Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons

Brandon Girod
9.5Excellent
Emotional story, interesting mix of controls and story, great graphics
Stuttering, awkward controls
If you’re into gaming, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons for Android is probably a game you’ve already hear lots about. This was a game that took gamers by storm a few years back with the masterful way it combined it controls with the story. It was an emotional roller coaster of a game that many claimed as their favorite game of the year. I wasn’t so won over by it, but I can definitely appreciate it for what it is.
This is literally a tale of two brothers. Their father is dying and the only option his sons have are to set off on a dangerous journey to find the “Water of Life.” So, the brothers do just this. There are two very important aspects of the game’s dynamics. The first is how you control these characters. The movement of each character is guided by one of two joysticks, and on mobile, even their actions are determined by these two joysticks. The other aspect is how each brother eventually grows to rely on each other to survive the journey - the younger brother relying more on the older brother.
The story remains unchanged, and I don’t want to say much because it’s arguably the strongest part of the game, though even the mechanics play an integral role in the story. That said, it’s worth playing through, just know that. The game’s puzzles are great exercises, though none of them will leave you stumped for very long.
My quip is that the game simply doesn't control as well without physical controls. Actions are performed by tapping on the center of the joystick attributed to its respective character, and you have to move your character into place in order for the game to acknowledge what you want to do and highlight the action so you can perform it. This is sometimes clumsy to do with virtual controls, and it really detracts from the experience.
If you have a computer and a controller, play this on your PC. It’s still the best way to experience this game. But even if you don’t, once you learn to get past the somewhat irritating controls, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is still one of the best gaming experiences to date.
