    It’s really a beautiful thing that Valiant Hearts: Coming Home exists today. It’s a blessing because is both the sequel-conclusion to one of the most beloved and didactically valuable games ever produced by Ubisoft, and the opening ram for a different way to publish games. However, this must not blind from evident flaws like low duration, low difficulty and some plot issues, such as the excessive dependence to its prequel.

    When viewed through that lens, Valiant Hearts: Coming Home is a success story. It tells an emotionally resonant story through multiple episodes, each with simple gameplay mechanics and a difficulty level that's welcoming to many players. That being said, seasoned video game veterans will notice the lack of substance in gameplay, even if they're moved by the story being told.
