At least six hours of gameplay, if you rush it, and a beautiful and heartbreaking story. The music and atmosphere are absolutely lovely and the puzzles are challenging enough to be interesting without having that seemingly logicless progression of some puzzle games. The worst thing I could say about it is that the gameplay formulas are repeated throughout the game, but to be honest this didn't bother me at all.

Valiant Hearts is a game with an involving and emotional story. The gameplay is more or less puzzle solving and exploration of the different settings. If you're interested in history, you can read up on facts ingame explaining how it really happened. The artstyle may at first seem out of place for World War 1, but it works out really well.

I recommend this game because it's beautiful in so many different ways. First, the artwork is beautiful. Some may say it isn't fitting for a game about World War I, but I can't picture this game with more complex graphics. I think that would take away too much from the story and themes of the game. The story is emotional and leaves an impact. It's also quirky and even cute at times. I don't think I've encountered a fictional piece about WWI as beautiful as this. More people should play this game. I would recommend it over and over again.

Valiant Hearts: The Great war- is probably the best game about the 1. world war

I dont say "set in" i mean about- it potrays the terror, and idiotic waste of life, while staying charming with the clever use of music, the sweet art style, and humor.
The ONLY downside would be the gameplay, as the puzzles can get a little simple and boring. But this game is not about the gameplay. It's a game about the 1.st world war- with no combat. And thats what makes it amazing
9/10 must have

A quaint little action/adventure-ish game with puzzle elements thrown in, created by the Ubisoft studio that made the recent Rayman games and Child of Light. Set in the First World War, it revolves around four main characters and their ordeals during the conflict, and left me with a case of the feels by the end. If you have any interest in war history or just want a nice short story-rich experience, give it a try.

It's a pretty good puzzle game. The story is catching with a very few "too real" scenes thrown in. It isn't Life is Strange or Undertale, and you probably won't walk away with a new outlook on WW1. I liked playing it. If you end up playing it and liking it you should try reading Fall of Giants by Ken Follet. It's the best Fictionalization of WW1.

Very sad and tragic story... This game is unique in so many ways. It amazes by its art style, story, characters, locations, music, the background information about World War I. But the gameplay sometimes can be very repetitive, tricky and unjustifiably difficult (it demands you do strict pixel- and timing-perfect actions) which immediately throws you off the immersion and the story. Especially the QTE scene at the very end. And by repetitive I mean very unnecessary repetitive element, some scenes would definitely benefit from less forcefully complicated repetitive pazzle-elements which were already done in similar way numerous times earlier in the game.

But nevertheless, it is a great game with a very strong and important story, a lot of real facts about WWI, and I receommend everyone to experience it.

Incredibly good story based game. The gameplay has light puzzles and isn't at all difficult (if you screw up, it usually just lets you start the sequence over). The illustration, animation, music, sound effects are all really really well done. The story is good, and the added facts and tidbits about WWI are very interesting. It's sad that for many, it has become the forgotten war, having been overshadowed by WWII.
Highly Recommend this game. It's not long, but very worth it.

A game which contains several puzzles, a few boss battles and is relatively short (around 7 hours). Valiant Hearts is more like a game that tells you a story, a story about WW1 of course. You have characters from different nations that end up meeting each other for different reasons.

The puzzles aren't complicated and boss fights aren't hard, but they are fun to do. The best part about this game for me is all the knowledge you get from the many facts and curiosities that are given as reward for collecting optional items and such. As someone that loves the subject of wars, specially the 2 world wars that happened, it was a good experience for me since I got to learn about things I didn't know before by playing this game.

The story is good. Before I played this I saw a lot of people saying it was really emotional heavy and I was expecting lots of things to make the players cry or feel bad somehow, but after completing it I must say it isn't that heavy. You'll probably only get the "feels", as they say, by the end.

The only thing that I think is missing from the game is another character with a different perspective from the others (they are all on the allies side), it really bothers me how there's no one having their story told from the German side (Karl doesn't count), specially since that kind of perspective is very often not known by people. I wouldn't say the game tries to deliver the "good guys vs bad guys" crap, but if I was making the game I would add another character.

I rate this game 7/10 and recommend buying it during a sale if you like games that focus on the story and find the history of WW1 interesting.

I have never written a review on Steam before but this game was just too good not to. As of today, it is the only video game I have ever played that made me cry. This story is brilliant and unique; not to mention it's filled to the brim with emotion. A robot could play this game and still be bawling its eyes out by the end of it. The gameplay is fun, interesting, and special. You don't see many puzzle games based around war but Valiant Hearts pulls it off. I can not recommend this game enough. Just buy it, whether it's on sale or not. Even f this game was $1,000, I'd still say you should buy it.

Valiant Hearts: a tribute to human compassion in harsh times

So much has already been written on Valiant Hearts: The Great War that it seems almost redundant to add yet another glowing review admiring all the things this game does so well. Situated in the First World War, Valiant Hearts is at heart a 2D side-scrolling adventure game with quite some puzzles added into the mix. While the gameplay itself is top-notch on its own (controlling the different characters is a breeze and solving the puzzles offers a decent but surely not too steep challenge), the true genius of the game lies in the way the story conveys all the emotions that can be linked to a catastrophic event such as the First World War.

The story tells in a gripping way the effect of the ware on four characters: a French soldier Emile, a German soldier Karl (the son-in-law of Emile, which offers a lot of possibilities for the story-writers), an American volunteer Freddie who gets befriended with Emile and a Belgian nurse, Anna, who tries to help and comfort as many wounded a possible, without looking if they are friend or foe. The game surely is not "heroic" in any sense: it's not the (often false) heroism of the war that stands in the spotlight, but rather the life of different "ordinary" people who try to survive amidst the carnage. If there is one theme that stands out, it's that of human compassion even in such horrible circumstances: not only does the nurse tend to all soldiers she meets, the familial relationship between Emile and Karl puts the French-German conflict in a completely different light. The unexpected but true friendship between Emile and Freddie offers yet another layer of interaction. Furthermore, on several occasions there are situations in which soldiers of the different armies help each other out rather than blindly slaughtering their enemies. You even get a dog as a companion, who helps out on many occasions and is often the key to solving a puzzle.

The story is told both during the actual gameplay and in different scenes between the chapters and portions of the game, and it turns out to be a true rollercoaster of emotions with a gripping, desolate end. It is rare for a game to move the player into tears, but Valiant Hearts managed to do so on more than one occasion. I truly felt emotionally shattered once the game had ended. Ubisoft Montpellier also went to great pains to provide a lot of historical background on the First World War, and it manages to do so without giving the impression one is playing a mainly educational game. It was a very smart move to introduce "collectibles" throughout the game, which add a lot of information about daily life during the war and which can be picked up during actual gameplay. Together with the diaries of the protagonists and the historical facts which unlock when the game progresses, one gets a ton of interesting information.

There really is no reason not to try and probably love this game. I know that it is a Ubisoft game and that it forces to use Uplay, but believe me: the quality, also from a technical point of view of this game is miles above the big budget games Ubisoft have released over the past years. The only downside is that there are no Steam achievements, which could have been a very fine addition - the Uplay achievements, though well done by themselves, are no match for the real stuff. Be sure to use a controller for this game; the controls are nigh-perfect and very intuitive.

In every other department the game shines as well: graphically it does a very good job at conveying the often bleak atmosphere of the front - using a cartoonish comic-book style was a risk, but it pays off very well in the end. The sound department is even better, with a wonderful soundtrack and exactly the right background sounds at the right moment.

Essential purchase and gaming experience, a true classic of the adventure genre and a deep emotional experience.

A beautifully designed, highly polished and all-around impressive game of mild/average difficulty combining environment/physics puzzling with cutscene-ish time-based trials having you endure the hardships of World War 1 through the perspectives of characters of different sex, age, race and species (persons and a medical/rescue dog).

The game has great art, great music, highly varied levels and gameplay executions (as much as is possible within this theatre of war anyway) and generally feels very thoughtful. There is a brief encyclopedia updating itself throughout the game giving info on the places you're finding yourself in and there are collectibles that are actually interesting to seek out because they relate to specific situations, behaviors or events of the time - for example bullet/artillery casings turned into other tools or decorative items by soldiers out of boredom, logistical necessity or in an attempt to keep the mind occupied when hunkered down in the trenches (I can't always be bothered with the brainless collectibles in other games; I might actually replay this one at some point just for those).

The story has you switch between characters rather frequently, each having their own abilities of sorts and reasons to join the war (willingly or unwillingly) in some form or another until the individual lines of at least parts of them converge into one. This was done rather well, and has you wonder how everyone is holding up when not playing them, even though at times it can feel a little artifical how by the unlikeliest of circumstances and against all odds they still find each other again in a conflict as chaotic and brutal as this one consuming lives left and right regardless of ambitions and hopes.

The story itself has some emotionally striking moments but otherwise left little impression to me. That's no real issue though since this game is more about the people and their imminent struggles within this time period which all works well enough as it happens. Even so I could've lived without the first half or so of the game having you chase down some evil German general criss-crossing Europe in his Zeppelin because that was just too much a cliché for my taste. There is a genius scientist of sorts too, fortunately not a mad one. If you can forgive these stereotypes you still have a beautifully designed and emotionally engaging experience that can be called bold for presenting things in such a rather unique, thoughtful manner and tackling a war that might be criminally underrepresented in games.

BUY THIS GAME!

This is difficult to type because it's hard to see through all my tears.

A puzzle adventure game containing an extremely touching story and characters that you surely will become attached to. Game also contains factsheets for some historical information about WWI. Puzzles were not too easy and actually required some thinking (though that didn't really matter to me because I continued playing for the story alone). It was an absolute pleasure to have played this game.

One of the best games I've seen in my entire life. Simple, meaningful, and, most of all, cute. A war game with no actual combat. Not in the widely-accepted sense, anyway.

I'd recommend this game without hesitation.

A work of art


Now, to get that out of the way quickly: From a pure gameplay perspective Valiant Hearts is mediocre at best - the difficulty level is low, puzzles are easy and there's not much variety in the gameplay. But that's not what this game is about anyway, so if you think you can overlook that, stick with me and keep reading.

What really stands out, and I mean really stands out in this game is the storytelling.
Valiant Hearts follows four different personas with interwoven stories throughout the course of World War 1, "The Great War". You quickly become attached to the characters - a French farmer serving in the French army, his German son-in-law in the German military, a US soldier and a Belgian student serving as a medic - and feel involved in their and their families' fates, which lets you be a witness of the gruesome war in a way no documentary can convey.
The game depicts the war in an authentic, accurate and thus very cruel way, not hesitating to show the suffering of women and children - war doesn't stop where the battlefield ends. Still, there are many moments of joy and humanity to be found within the tragic, war-torn story - it simply is an impressive, eye-opening and absolutely beautiful experience.
If you enjoyed Telltale's The Walking Dead you'll most likely love this game - same goes if you're interested in history, of course.
The game comes with 2D-optics, so there's not much to say about high fidelity graphics, but the game has a really nice art design. The drawn, sort of cute graphics stand in stark contrast to the the terrible, all to real horror that was World War 1, but somehow that doesn't hinder you from identifying with the characters of the game - quite the contrary, actually.
When I finished the game, it seriously send a shiver down my spine.

Valiant Hearts really shows the potential of the medium videogame. There aren't many other games that left me as impressed as this one.

-> 10/10
