Nine months after its initial announcement, Valiant Hearts: The Great War is finally here and we've been able to complete the game in time for its release. As usual, if you want the full review, head over to the French side as we've only had time to translate the final verdict for you guys. If reading is not your thing, then check out our 1080p/60fps videos of the PC version.
Valiant Hearts: The Great War could certainly have benefited from more content and a bit more challenge, but through the stories of four individuals Ubisoft manages to pay homage to a generation of men and women long since passed. The conflict is presented with humility and respect for those involved simply because it focuses on individuals rather than the ideologies which led to the war. Karl, Emile, Anna, and Freddie want just one thing; some form of serenity obtained through different accomplishments. More than mere patriotism, it is family and friendship through which this game is built, two values which helped give our elders the courage necessary to protect us through sacrifice. Through it's sharp art direction, striking sound design, and the wonderful simplicity of the narrative, Valiant Hearts is not only a worthy tribute to the memory of our great-grandparents but also worthy of players today. It's a great bargain right to kick off the summer before the inevitable game drought begins.

Death Stranding using Guerrilla Games' engine. Guess we can kiss that PC ver goodbye then. [url] (1 Hour ago)
WD2 is more fun than WD1, but it's so easy. Also, the main quests are 'meh'. WD1 had a more focussed story. The story in WD2 is uninspired. (3 Hours ago)
@Sdarts: Don't forget that people are getting sick of CoD, they didn't trust WD anymore after the first. Dishonored 2 got too little PR according to me. (3 Hours ago)
quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (4 Hours ago)
Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (4 Hours ago)
I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (6 Hours ago)
