Not many people know about this game. There has been a demo in ops2 but they didnt review it.Trust me this is a good game and deserves buying if you love platformers like rachet and clank or jak and daxter.You can climb trees and use a bow and arrow and a tomohawk.You can ride buffalo and hawks.You can travell about in a canoe.Whats not fun about that?The game takes you from lush jungles to scorching hot deserts and ice caves.It has a working volcano!Plus you can mimic the shape and noise animals make.If i was to score it i would give it:
Graphics - 8
Gameplay - 8
Sound - 7
Lifespan - 8
Theres plenty to do so if you like platformers/action/adventure games then this game is for you
SCORE - 8
Plus its rare!

I'm no hardcore gamer, not by any leap of the imagination; just like to have FUN playing, rather than end up nutting the tv screen! I love this game ... the colourful graphics and gorgeous backdrops, the story and native american theme, loads of dreamcatcher health and also spirit-energy top-ups that make it hard to die, the 5 feathers you earn during the game that allow you to become more powerful during a slighter tougher fight (i.e. for hardcore gamers out there, a pretty wussy fight but GREAT fun). Only towards the end of the game did I find it a little more difficult, but it was just enough to be a bit testing (for me!) but fine after trying it a few times and realising the technique. You can use the 'give me all the help possible' setting too, so e.g. if you are canoeing and bump the canoe too many times and have to restart that part, a tip comes up.

Lots of fun to be had canoeing, tracking, mimicking, fishing, using ice-picks to climb, flying on the eagle's back dropping boulders onto enemies in order to get the pieces of an amulet, morphing into spirit bear and thumping and eating cemetery warriors, having a sasquatch help you fight wolves, whacking skeleton things while riding on a buffalo, and scrapping with first a stick, then a tomahawk, then a bow and arrow ... killing beetles, wolves, freaky dead warriors etc. And the end-boss, the Wendigo, takes quite a while to kill, but as you are on the eagle's back you can at any time fly through a huge white orb to refill your health and blaster, so no problem.

The controls are fine, plus the help system can display the controls when needed anyway, e.g. for lighting a fire. The game very regularly autosaves too, another feature that means you can just enjoy playing it.

The only frustration was that occasionally near the end when climbing along the lava, jumping, and using the throwing axe, sometimes Brave'd seize up and get splattered by the lava creatures. As the next bit was to quickly scrap with some small stone ogres and then summon lightening and jump back over to zap the huge stone ogre, I restarted (made Brave drop off the wall) if it seized up and he got hit, as you need your health fully topped up to beat the big stone ogre. Beating him, and the little stones that drop off him, means going round the outskirts of the area, and, as your lightening circle around you grows, pressing Square to zap the stone ogre when he's within your lightening circle. Took about 7 hits and some running and dodging, but that's the hardest it gets really! And towards the end, you need to time jumps well, but, again, not difficult.

There aren't any secrets or hidden levels to unlock etc, but that doesn't detract at all. The game can be played in a few different languages, so I am now playing it in spanish, to help with my spanish studies ... fun way to learn. Highly recommend Brave; fun to play and replay.

I really love this game.

Its constantly changing, so you dont get bored of having to slave your way through long arduious levels that just seem to reapeat themselves over and over. One minute your running around in the deepest darkest pasrts of the rain forest, battling the watery rapids in your cannoe and attacking evil wolves, the next your scaling snowy mountain peaks with bigfoot. What fun!

The strong structure of the game makes it really easy to follow, i mean, you are pretty much going where your told to, but the fun graphics and interesting scenery make up for the lack of independance.

All the characters are great fun and the cut scenes are short so theres no hanging around repeatedly hitting all the buttons trying to figure out a way to escape long pointless conversations.

I think its great fun, but dont expect your gaming intelect to be challenged.

What an absolute joy to play. This game had a little bit of everything in it. It starts off in a vast area that you can explore to your hearts content, using skills like mimicry and being able to possess an animal to get further into the game. Halfway through, the game gets a lot more linear but this is definitely not a bad thing. It helps there to be more variety. It can be very tough in places but it's also fun. There was a really tough part where I was racing with a herd of buffalo's but it was such a unique gaming experience so it didn't bore me or make me lose my patience.

I thought the graphics were lovely too, and just the whole layout and style of the game was incredible. I would highly reccomend this game, even if you are a harcore player or not.

This is an ok game. With a lot of variety in it. There is another game like this called Tak and The Power Of Juju which is really not as good as this game. not bad for a new game which is about 10 months old. Good Game
