A bright platformer is just what we needed on Xbox One and Max: The Curse of Brotherhood’s vibrant setting and terrain-altering puzzles deliver. But the adventure doesn’t quite feel next-gen. With unintuitive controls, puzzle mechanics that’ve been done better elsewhere, and a story with the depth of a coloring book, it’s hard to stay invested in this short adventure.

It became more and more irritating as the game progressed, missing the presumed destination of “charm” and instead arriving at “extroverted brat”. It certainly felt more asinine than it was endearing, although I’ll happily concede that as a matter of personal preference. ...So, while it has some great puzzle design and some gorgeous scenery, it’s got just as much working against it thanks to a frustrating control system, some technical glitches and irritating character realisation.

It’s a game full of wonder and magical moments, that while light on actual narrative, still delivers a world that is hard to forget. The visuals are Pixar-esque charming and the combination of cerebral puzzles with thrilling action offers up a bite-sized experience that is a welcome addition to the Xbox One’s library. If you’re looking for a change a pace, I couldn't think of a more fitting way to finish off this gaming year.
