It may sound like I am over-enthusiastic but, to me, Brave is the best kids RPG so far and it's so because developers are treating their little gamers audience with the respect they deserve rather than looking down at them. Yes, the game is not as complex as Dark Souls or Skyrim but playing it is challenging and interesting even when the players are grownups. I consider Brave an RPG primer because many if not all RPG elements are in the game and they are not only well implemented but everything is packaged in a way that makes the game appealing to a little girl in the process of developing her gamer skills.
The story... it's based on Pixar's movie, of course. The hero is little princess Merida whose mother and little brothers need to be rescued because they've been turned into bears by some evil... thing. But it's easier said than done. There are ghosts and other bad enemies to defeat, puzzles to solve, charms to collect, skills to develop and there is a lot of exploring, strategising and combat, maybe not grownup hard but hard enough to challenge a player to the point where she learns new skills. But let me discuss some of the RPG elements that are experienced in Brave.
- Combat - It's as good as it gets. Merida fights with swords and bows and she can't win unless she learns how to do combos, roll and dodge and manage her health.
- Weapons - There's a variety of swords and bows including some quite familiar to us, experienced RPG players.Read more ›
There's no real gore or violence despite the fighting - it's all creatures and fairy tale things, and they pretty much just vanish when they "die". Closest thing to reality are birds.
It's very similar to one of the spongebob games, including the "double jumping" thing that I always detested. And as with most games like that, it can be frustrating because it's tough to judge just WHERE you are in relation to the platforms until you're right on top of them (and then you can see the little shadow circle underneath, showing exactly where you are).
Bosses can be tough but since you can change the difficulty in-game, if a kid is having a tough time it's always easy to just tone down the difficulty for them to try again on an easier setting.
Not much for finding things though - some clothes, and some artwork, and swords and bows. Seems you spend most of your time hitting plants trying to get cash to buy more powerful spells for your weapons.
Each level can be gone back to at any point, and one thing I *DO* really like is that at the entrance of every different level, it specifically tells you how much of what you can find in there you've gotten - i.e. 0/1 swords, 1/1 bow, 0/3 mural, etc... So it's easy to find out what you're missing so you don't wander aimlessly hoping there was something in a level that you must have missed.
I got this on a gold box deal for cheap, so not sure if I would've paid retail price for it knowing how quick and repetitive it is, but for the gold box deal, or if you find it used, it's worth it, especially if you have a kid who liked the movie.

Fun game. The husband and I picked it up after playing it at Disney World. Not overly challenging (what I would expect from a 10+ rating) but a good way to kill a few hours.Published 8 months ago by Jenna P.
