    With its gorgeous visuals and seldom-explored historical setting, Valiant Hearts: The Great War is a beautiful and original game, one that taxes our brains while stirring our emotions.

    C'est développé par un studio français s'il vous plait je tiens à le souligner : Ubisoft Montpellier allez cocorico lol.
    Nos protagonistes se retrouvent embarqués malgré eux dans ce terrible conflit mais l'espoir va renaitre à force courage et de dévouement tout au long de l'aventure.
    Dés le début, on sent tout de suite un jeu crée par une équipe de passionnés et enrichie par les bases de données d’Apocalypse la 1re Guerre mondiale cela donne vraiment un jeu très convaincant.
    En effet tout au long de vos pérégrinations vous découvrirez les lieux et faits marquants de la grande guerre mais également pour les plus curieux d'entre vous des notes, objets ou anecdotes viendront enrichir vos connaissances.
    Bref foncez acheter le jeu, il vaut vraiment le coup aussi bien pour sa direction artistique façon bande dessinée que pour ses personnages attachants, émouvants et drôles.
    Tout simplement le meilleur jeu d'Ubisoft en 2014 !! =)

It's unique visual style looks fantastic, the music is great and it makes a change to play a game set during a war (in this case World War I) that is more concerned with telling the story of how people are affected rather than just have you shoot everything in sight.

    Unfortunately in terms of gameplay its not actually very entertaining. Much of the time is spent solving overly simple 'puzzles' that often involve little more than collecting an object from one screen to use on another. On the occasions when you are tasked with doing something different the game repeats one of only three different ideas (dodge falling bombs, press buttons in time with a beat or throw an object such as dynamite) none of which are challenging or enjoyable to begin with. As a result the game seemed a lot longer than its 6-7 hour running time, and I don't mean that in a good way.

    I'm glad games like this are being made but when I'm playing a video game the gameplay needs to be at least somewhat enjoyable if I'm going to really immerse myself in its world and despite all its positives I can't honestly say Valiant Hearts is a title I'll remember a few years from now.

Valiant Hearts is a "story" with some gaming aspects to it, which are very rudimentary by today's standards. Paired with a lovely classical score and chapter-based narrative— these elements are able to fill in the gaps throughout a story who's message is conveyed effectively with virtually no dialog at all. Think of it as an interactive story book— with wonderfully designed characters, paying homage to classic 2D parallax environments. Full Review »
