Brothers: a Tale of Two Sons Review | GameCloud

William at GameCloud writes: "Brothers: a Tale of Two Sons is the sort of game that the industry needs. It’s not indie, it’s not blockbuster, but instead, a small and expertly designed experience that’s coming from the minds of established studios. It’s arguably a bit steep with its pricing, costing around 20 dollars for just over three hours of gameplay. However, it is my opinion that this slightly higher cost is worth it. The narrative is simply outstanding and does not require dialogue to influence the player to heavily invest their emotions within such a short period of time. The puzzles are a little simple, but the satisfaction of the dual-controlled characters makes the general experience enjoyable as you traverse so many different and unique environments. It’s also incredible the way the player will psychically attach themself to each stick, which is noticeably uncomfortable when one brother is missing. It’s a little disappointing that the graphical design can’t quite live up to its artistic core, but in saying that, it delivers well enough. It’s a wonderful adventure that will keep you invested till the end, and leave you with a strong impression." (Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 8.5/10

To me it seemed to start of rather slowly and even a bit aimless, but from chapter 3 on it really shines. The game world alone is worth the admission price IMO.
Also, the fact that the chars speak gibberish holds the potential to immerse the player in a very personal way, since you're starting to listen for subtle nuances in intonation and tempo to try to make sense of their language. In the end, the chars say what you feel would be right or even wrong for them to say.

The demo doens't hold a candle to the full game. Much like Journey, it's about the game/experience as a whole, not as a sum of its parts (i.e., gameplay, atmosphere, story, setting, ..)
