    A great story. Touching, brilliantly developed end elegantly depicted. Ubisoft shows once again that video games are indeed art and a great storytelling medium.

    Valiant Hearts accomplishes what only a small number of games can: it educates you on the highs and lows of a significant event in history, while creating a tragically beautiful game experience.

    The five hours or so of gameplay that you’ll get from a single playthrough are rewarding and memorable, with that fantastic storyline backing up some great puzzling action.

    A story-driven journey through a war that's been overlooked by video games.

    Valiant Hearts strikes a difficult balance in depicting the horrors of war and the hope that peeks through its cracks, but it does so with grace.

    Often more engaging than its simple puzzles should allow it to be, the presentation and variety of gameplay ideas go a long way to making this an impressive, if small, adventure.

    Visually, the game is crisp, but looks to me like a glorified flash game.

The puzzles are not overly challenging, and I estimate the game should take between 7-10 hours to complete. The music and voice overs are amazing. Best WWI game I've ever played.

    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 is almost impossible to look at the game and not smile or enjoy what has been made. For anyone who enjoys a good story with lovableIt is almost impossible to look at the game and not smile or enjoy what has been made. For anyone who enjoys a good story with lovable characters i strongly recommend this, yes it can be repetitive in some areas but what game these days isn't. It's never a boring game and if the story or gameplay doesn't keep your eye then you can lay back and listen to the breathtaking soundtrack. For under 20$ and up to 8 hours of playtime this is a puzzle adventure game that knows what it is and will never let you forget it was made from the heart. Expand

    I was really looking forward to this game and although I liked the story and the history lesson I really have to say I almost hated the gameI was really looking forward to this game and although I liked the story and the history lesson I really have to say I almost hated the game play. I found the game side of it to be tedious and annoying and couldn't wait to finish it. I am very sad to say this as I really do love what they tried to do with this game. The first world war as a setting and the puzzles all should have worked for me as this is what I normally love in gaming. Why this didn't work for me I can't really put my finger on but It was a chore to play for me. I can only guess that it might have been the repetitiveness of the game that was the culprit. I hope this kind of game continues to be made but I think the developers need to work a bit on making them more fun to play. This sounds shallow to say this about a game that tries to let you feel what the first world war was like, which I think is does very well, but games still need to be fun to play. Expand
