    Valiant Hearts: The Great War is both touching and educational, a rich experience that lives between two worlds: comics and videogames.

    Valiant Hearts: The Great War teaches us that even the most difficult situations can be useful to learn something. It offers an emotional story that can be enjoyed from beginning to end, despite its short duration.

    If you didn't have a chance to play Valiant Hearts yet, go ahead. This Switch version is very good, with untouched graphics and a vast choice of gameplay, with the option of tactile or gamepad controls depending of your liking. We would have loved a new chapter about Georges though.

    Valiant Hearts: The Great War is an elegant mix of 2D adventuring, simple logic-based conundrums, and effective storytelling. Its puzzles are a little uninspired, while the game's QTE segments can grow rather tiresome. But Ubisoft Montpellier has told a poignant story with real spirit and invention, and that makes this an easy one to recommend.

    Valiant Hearts: The Great War on Switch adds nothing new, but it is - like four years ago - the same wonderful game.

    Valiant Hearts: The Great War is an impressive and highly educational graphic adventure, now also available on Nintendo Switch.

    Valiant Hearts is a game that I like more in theory than execution. I give Ubisoft Montpellier a lot of credit for taking a level-headed look at a period of history that usually gets overshadowed, but the gameplay didn’t get nearly as much attention as the aesthetics. If the puzzles had been more unique or interesting they could’ve propped up the story instead of dragging it down to mediocrity. Instead Valiant Heart turns one of the greatest conflicts in human history into a dull, repetitive chore.

    Beautiful and emotional masterpiece.

    The games story is well paces, the historical information is relevant and poignant. This is a story with puzzle elements, not a puzzle game with a good story. Changing the gameplay could easily ruin the pacing. This is a audiovisual journey through one of the most difficult times in human history and its a tear jerker.

    Sin previo aviso Ubisoft nos mete de lleno en la gran guerra, probablemente una de las contiendas más infernales de la historia.

    El título nos cuenta historias sobre la primera guerra mundial desde diferentes puntos de vista, cosa que es de agradecer y que es muy raro de ver, también tenemos un apartado de Datos históricos sobre el conflicto que ayuda a entender cómo se vivió todo.

    En el Gameplay nos encontramos un juego basado en puzzles muy amenos y dinámicos.

    La banda sonora es excelente, llena de música clásica que pega de maravilla y acompaña muy bien en todos los momentos de la historia.

    La campaña es espectacular pocas palabras describen lo que te hace sentir el juego al terminar...

    欧美漫画风的小品解谜游戏,育碧的小游戏都不错的说,难度不高,偶有卡关的,中间有一关以物换物想到了织梦岛。 故事还是挺不错的虽然主角光环影响战局比较扯。 打完后的感觉是希望不再有战争。欧美漫画风的小品解谜游戏,育碧的小游戏都不错的说,难度不高,偶有卡关的,中间有一关以物换物想到了织梦岛。 故事还是挺不错的虽然主角光环影响战局比较扯。 打完后的感觉是希望不再有战争。

    Nice and small game about WWI, with creative mechanics and nice history pictures and facts. This is really the one, where you play and learn a lot.
