Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons is a very linear, story-based game. it follows the journey of two young brothers on a quest to save their father. With little to no intro to the game, you're thrown right into it with just the briefest of tutorials.
Your father has fallen ill to an unknown virus, and the only thing that can save him is water from an ancient tree (a slight cliche but I can overlook it). The doctor who is taking care of your father sends you away to find the water, and there your journey begins.
You must journey through woods, mines, castles, battlefields, and icy waters. This quest takes you through all of these different environments but at the same time makes it all flow seamlessly and beautifully. The animation and artwork in this game make it by far one of my favorite games to date. With a cutesy (but just realistic enough) design style, this game comes across just realistic enough to keep you immersed, even with the fantasy involved.
