Max: The Curse of Brotherhood is a pleasantly challenging platformer with adorable charm and an entertaining story. It’s a good step for younger gamers to take who might start to feel a bit old for Mario and want a challenge. With great presentation and entertaining voice acting, the only real downside to the game comes in its wonky application of controlling the magic marker itself, which feels sluggish and doesn’t keep the general quick pace of the rest of the game.
For every thrilling moment that you experience from the game’s cinematic aspirations and standout puzzle design, Max: The Curse of Brotherhood fumbles soon after. It’s an uneven adventure, but one that can still celebrate many successes – even if it fails to rival some already strong competition in the genre on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch.
Of course, all this is packed in interesting platformer form with a dazzling cartoonish visual style that was rightly compared with the works of Pixar Animation Studios. All that combined makes Max: The Curse of Brotherhood a real treat for anyone interested in a good platformer action, but also for those players who like to occasionally indulge in some lightweight puzzle game.
