I was actually kind of annoyed when GF decided to send me Brave, way at the bottom of my GameQ, but I decided to give it a chance.. To my surprise I enjoyed it all the way through! It's cute, fun, and short, which is somehow appealing even though it shouldn't be..

The game is pretty simple and efficient in it's mechanics and setup, and isn't too challenging, even on max difficulty (Brave mode).. There are checkpoints like every 2 minutes in game progression, so it doesn't even matter if you die a lot in certain areas.. I only had a hard time during two boss fights, one of which was the final boss.. Oh, and if you're looking for an easy platinum, I would say this is definitely it compared to 99% of the games out there.. I got the plat in one sitting (with plenty of little breaks in between), that took around 8~10 hours.. lol

The only thing I regret is that this game obviously has spoilers.. So if that's something you're concerned about, hold off and watch the movie first! :P

Anyway, even though I enjoyed it, I'm still only giving it a 6 out of 10, because it really isn't anything special.. Try it out if you're bored and want something simple or mildly amusing, if you've got children who like video games and are still developing good hand/eye coordination, or if you want an easy plat! :)

Entertaining, but can be frustrating

A solid, pretty fun game. However, I wouldn't recommend it to those seeking an easy Platinum trophy. A fairly quick one, yes, but easy? No. On the hardest difficulty, Brave can be exceptionally punishing, especially during boss battles.

Still, it's entertaining, and one could certainly do much worse when it comes to licensed games.

Brave Review

I really enjoyed the game adaptation of the movie Brave. If you haven't seen the movie (I haven't), then you might be confused of the story, but I skipped the cut scenes due to the fact that I haven't seen the movie.
The gameplay is just another action adventure game with the jumping, shooting stuff, etc. I really like the bow, where you have unlimited ammo (which really helps), and you control it with the right stick, instead of pressing a button. The camera can be an issue at times, where it doesn't want to catch up to the action, but it does it's job most of the time.
You have two weapons, a sword and a bow. I rarely used the sword, due to the fact that picking off enemies with an unlimited use of the bow's ammo, makes the game easier. The difficulty of the game is decent for the movie based game. The 'Brave' difficulty can be punishing if you don't know what you're doing.
The trophies aren't hard to get either, just a lot of grinding for unlocking the abilities. I platted the game within 8 hours.
All in all, I really enjoyed the game, and it probably would have been better if I watched the film.

(Unlimited bow ammo, good combat, and moderate difficulty make the game enjoyable.
Camera issues, and about 2 hours of grinding for a trophy was a bummer.

Soundtrack was ok. Nothing special. The pause screen has music which gets annoying if game is paused for a bit.

Replay Value:2
I guess, if you want to play it again, then whatever, but no need after one play through.

Trophy difficulty: 4/10
The only thing hard was the last boss on 'Brave' difficulty. The grinding sucked, but pretty much straightforward.

Overall: 7
Good rental. Good game. Another platinum for the collection.

Add me on PSN at cometback13 if you enjoyed my review.
