Ken McKown writes: I was more than a little shocked to learn that this is not Max’s first rodeo. The Curse of Brotherhood is actually a follow-up to 2010’s Max and the Magic Marker. Needless to say this is my first time with the series. The concept involves a boy named Max, who just so happens to have a pretty magical marker that he uses to solve puzzles. There is no combat involved outside of the occasional struggle with the drawing mechanic. Xbox One owners looking for something new to tie them over are definitely in for a treat.
