Microsoft’s annual Summer of Arcade extravaganza is now in full swing, and what better way to immerse ourselves in what this glorious promotion has to offer, than with the emotionally-charged, story-driven adventure of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.

Developed by Starbreeze Studios – the team responsible for shooters, The Darkness and Syndicate – the game’s narrative centres around two young brothers, who must undertake a dangerous journey to retrieve a mystical cure for their dying father. The intrepid siblings must work together, relying on each other to overcome obstacles, solve puzzles and progress through a world that is as perilous as it is picturesque.

Joe Pring reviewed Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons for GameGrin, awarding it an impressive score of 9/10, calling the game “fantastic” and recommending it as “essential to anyone”.

In this conversation piece Joe and I will break down exactly what it is that makes this experimental enterprise so exceptional, comparing and contrasting our thoughts and opinions, and arguing our respective viewpoints. Welcome, to Brothers: The Thoughts of Two Gamers.
