Brave: PlayStation 3 Game Review

Brave: PlayStation 3 Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Jul 01, 2012
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Play through the scenes of the popular movie and more in Brave, the video game! Check out our review for the details!

Princess Merida has accidently cursed her mother and brothers to become bears. The only way to restore them is to hunt down and defeat the cursed bear Mor'du. For the most part, the game follows the story line in the movie. However, the game does go more in-depth at certain places and also allows you to explore more areas from the movie.

Princess Charming

For the vast majority of the game, you will be playing as Princess Merida, who is an excellent archer. The left analog stick moves Merida while the right analog stick fires her bow. This means you can shoot in any direction at any time, which comes in handy when enemies attack from all sides. When enemies get close, you can use Merida's sword. And when things get overwhelming, Merida can also use her magic charms to blast enemies.

As you progress through the game, you can get skill upgrades for Merida to improve her attacks with extra damage or special abilities. Occasionally, you get to play as Merida's mother, Elinor, in bear form. As a bear, Elinor can brute force her way through levels. The game does have a co-op mode as well, where one player plays as Merida and the other plays as a Wisp with unlimited lives, which is great for younger siblings.

Hit or Miss?

overall, Brave is a solid game. The default difficulty is good for young kids an the harder difficulty is challenging enough for experienced players. However, there is a lot of boring fights and, despite the minor minigames, the game is hardly worth playing through more than once. Definitely worth renting, especially if you are a fan of the movie.
