Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons review - A short, but a much meaningful journey than most

I got this game a month ago, but with a list of ps3 games I've yet to play and soon PS4 being added to the list, this game somehow got lost in the pile. The list will only grow thanks to how PS plus giving away games like crazy, I needed to pick up the pace, I started with this game and ended with a single on earth did I neglect such a beautiful game?

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is a story about how two brothers travel across mountains, valleys , sea and even battles to save their dad while putting their own lives at risk.  You control the two brothers using left and right stick independently. Which is odd and can be hard to get used to, but, it really makes perfect sense when you consider the theme of the game and is just one of the many examples of how the gameplay mechanics actually plays to the story which is incredibly rare. The gameplay is mostly puzzle based, not hard but still very satisfying.

The journey was short, but it was beautiful and most importantly, meaningful. Fantastic game, please play it if you haven't done so yet.
