Amazing game

If you have any doubts in buying this game trust me it's well worth it. Love the storyline and the ability to have to use both sticks at the same time. One of the best twin stick games i have ever played.

Was a great game. Good level design and was just the right length. Hugely depressing at the end though. I seem to associate Starbreeze with sad games though. After The Darkness which was also amazing, and also hugely sad.

I finished it yesterday, in one sitting. It was an overall enjoyable game. I'm glad I picked it up for $5, opposed to $15 though. I can't see myself playing through it a second time.

A beautifully told story which did everything right for the most part. Some small miss-steps but overall a fantastic little game. Only worth one play through but if you are a fan of titles like TWD and prefer story over action this is a perfect choice.

Absolutely this!

Brothers, Twd, the wolf among us and LA Noire are all right up there for me.

Feel free to suggest any others like this.

I started it but never finished it, i couldn't get to grips with the controls. I keep meaning to go back and play it for the story but the Xbox One is just too good!

They do take a bit of getting used to! I would have liked the option to have reali co-op too, with 2 controllers. In fact I'm just assuming you can't. Haven't actually tried!

Got this game during the sales because it was cheap and didn't expect much.
But I agree! I got so into this game that I didn't even realise what chapter I was on and ended up missing all the achievements for Chapter 4.
If I didn't accidentally stumble across the giant horn, I probably would've played straight till the end.

I finished it last night, and really enjoyed it. Have to say I didn't get as emotionally involved as I was expecting, although my wife nearly cried! Not as emotional as The Walking Dead for me though.

A great game none the less, loved some of the puzzles and the controls at times are used in a fantastic way, very good.

Bought it on sale and just finished the game! I enjoyed the heck out of it despite the fact that it had waaay more morbid and depressing parts than I anticipated. And I'll second the comment about not getting very emotionally involved. Though I feel like that might be my fault for going through the game braced for something bad to happen... I'm so jaded...

I loved it regardless! Though even loving the simple story, because of the short length I wouldn't buy it unless it's on sale.

What an amazing and beautiful game. It felt incredibly intimate and almost autobiographical. There are games/movies/books that are soothing/healing for my soul; Brothers was added to that list.

I agree with pretty much everything said above. Bought it on sale and loved it. Going to play it with my girlfriend now and see how she reacts. Should be interesting!

Definitely an amazing game. Got it for free because Playstation is awesome, and it truly did not disappoint. It's one of those games that you just wish there was more of. One of the most unique games I've ever played. I hope Starbreeze isn't done with it.

This game was great! Although it was short, it was very enjoyable! I absolutely loved the graphics in the game; this game is definitely a piece of art. The ending also made this one of the saddest games that I have ever played...I actually cried. :'(
