I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming purchased a physical copy of Brothers on the Xbox One on Black Friday. It is one of those games I was interested in playing. I did not know much about this game except it was controversial. After playing Brothers, and going through the Director’s behind the scenes I know why. Brothers is dark, with all kinds of adult themes in it.

The dark themes of death, murder, suicide, hopelessness, false gods, idol worship, despair, ghosts, blood, and gore are bad in Brothers. To make matters worse the controls in Brothers are horrible. The jumping mechanic is a classic example. The timing on this is annoying. A button press would have made intelligent sense. Nope, Brothers has us press the direction, hold the trigger, let go of the trigger, and press it again (and hold) to jump to the next hand hold.

There are two brothers that one player controls in Brothers. The right stick controls the younger brother, and the left stick controls the older brother. Herding cats would be easier than trying to move the two brothers around. Why not have this be a cooperative two player experience where each player controls a brother? That would make so much more sense.

SPOILER ALERT! The only time Brothers controls partially worth a hill of beans is when the older brother dies. Ultimately the entire journey in Brothers feels like a waste of time. Like going on the quest in the first place was a bad idea. Should have stayed home, the father got better. The one positive I can see from the older brother dying in Brothers is there will be no sequels.

The language in Brothers is odd. It can be difficult to understand what they are saying. Sometimes the hand motions help explain the story. I also noticed Brothers expects players to stop and smell the roses within this short game. Interact with all kinds of things to find more offensive content. I passed on that once I found out the demented minds behind Brothers thought the dark subject matter was funny.
