The Guide: Games: Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons For Steam PC, Xbox 360
(Guardian (UK) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) The brothers' mum drowns and their dad becomes seriously ill, sending them on a quest for medicine that goes well beyond popping across the road to Boots. You control both brothers simultaneously, a process that takes a bit of getting used to, but that works nicely with the game's simple-minded but elegant puzzles. Despite there not being a single line of intelligible dialogue in the game, it still packs a hearty and cinematic poignancy as the boys meet glowing-eyed wolves, friendly giants and trolls.
