    Exciting medieval battles with few but specialized heroes in a varied solo campaign, no base building.

    The Valiant is a good low-scale battle strategy game: despite a deep learning curve, the core experience works well and the satisfaction builds the more the campaign goes on.

    What it boils down to is, we have seen this game before. Be it as WW2 soldiers or Orc stomping space marines, this is an experience that has been around for quite some time now. That being said, The Valiant is still a welcome addition to a genre that is currently underserviced. It has been put together by a talented team that knows exactly what they are doing and as a result, have created a game that fans of the genre will undoubtedly enjoy. The Valiant won’t change the world, but it will entertain its target player base for some time to come.

    A simple but engaging action tactics game with solid presentation and a neat setting that’ll easily make you want to take up your sword and go questing.

    Overall, The Valiant offers an engaging strategy experience that, while not offering anything ground-breaking, will keep RTS fans entertained. While the single-player campaign is presented in a traditional run-of-the-mill format, its multiplayer modes are sure to delight both old and new strategy fans. For that reason alone, the game is worth picking up.

    The Valiant is a decent enough game. It most likely won’t amaze you, especially if you’ve played other small-scale RTS games before, but its campaign is the right amount . And if you’ve liked Dawn of War 2 in the past, you’ll feel right at home.

    The one packaged by Kite Games is a formula full of proposals, appreciable by the admirers of the real-time strategy, especially in the medieval setting, which, however, would certainly have benefited from further study and care. After all, the playful recipe works but does not impress, accomplices of the constituent elements unable to interact better with each other. In other words, what The Valiant offers is an experience with a good dose of unexpressed potential, both from a narrative and a technical point of view.

    It's a fun game but the first 2 missions are boring. Also, the soundtrack is amazing.

    What a bunch of absolute nonsense. Please stop it with these uninspired medieval games.
