Brave: A Warrior's Tale is an action-adventure video game developed by Collision Studios and published by Evolved Games and SouthPeak Interactive for the Xbox 360. The Xbox version shipped to North American retailers on August 4, 2009, with the Wii version shipping shortly after.[1]

Controversy[edit | edit source]

"Brave: A Warrior's Tale" is a HD Port of Brave: The Search for Spirit Dancer a PS2 game from the year 2005, Wii version is 1:1 copy of the PS2 with only changed control scheme. Developers renamed it to hide the mediocre reviews Brave received. But still the new remade Xbox360 HD and the Wii SD version suffers from the same PS2 issues, only changes made in this version are (this counts only for the XBOX360 version): Game plays in native 720p resolution and has 4x AA with V-sych turned on.

Reception[edit | edit source]

Brave has received generally negative reviews.

Chris Watters of[3] claims "A cruelly hijacked story makes this otherwise serviceable game a pale shadow of adventures past." Watters scored the game a 4.5/10.

Tom Price of teamxbox[4] calls the game a "standard third-person action-adventure game" that "lacks all the charm of a Banjo-Kazooie type of world." Price also noticed several game-bugs, stating "I can’t tell you how many times I fell through solid objects or had the game completely freeze up on me." Price scored the game a 2.5/10, accounting for its lowest rating.

The staff at Gamezone scored the game a 5.5/10, saying "In bringing the game to the 360 [from the playstation 2 ], Collision Studios added some pretty terrible new content, and not a small number of bugs and glitches." They also stated that "The moment-to-moment gameplay of Brave’s sequences are fairly fun (though bugs are far more frequent than they should be), but the beginning and ending Courage segments are frustrating, poorly designed, and ridiculously glitchy."
