A nice game. I like to play it, beside...
Its very straight and a lil bit glitchy. ...and we dont even wanna talk about the dogs wayfinding intelligence.
What bugs me most, is the bug, that I have collected 23 out of 22 in the last level (yea, right - its not even counted propper) and did not even get a fukkin Medal.

Since the grafx are nice, its not really difficult and you can learn a lot of interesting fact if you want, I would really like to give this game a thumb upwards.
Too bad its Ubisoft and has build in thumb down! :P

I've had this on my wish list forever and I only wish that I had gotten around to it sooner. The effort they put into the story, narration, characters and artwork is off the charts. The game play is simple but they do a great job of weaving in the puzzles and challenges as the story unfolds. A perfect blend of casual game play and story telling. A fantastic experience all around.

I don't care *too* much for the gameplay or for uplay and ubisoft. I found it easy to look past all of those things and love the story and atmosphere.

Easily a game that made me sigh and cry at the end. I love this game.

It starts simply with charming animation and cute character design and ends with heartfelt and heartwrenching truths.

A game that made me stop violent fps shooters for a few days and think more thoughtfully about what I know about violence. What I know about history and what came before.

I'm incredibly thankful this game exists.

This is another very short game with roughly 6-7 hours of gameplay. I can describe it as an easy hidden objects, point and click graphical adventure with many easy puzzles, with a mix of some easy arcade moments and some easy stealth touches here and there.

You can think the price is way too high for a game like this and indeed the first paragraph sounds bad. So if you like playing games but you are the kind of guy that just focus on the gameplay, maybe this is not for you —or if you hate Ubi of course.

Why all the positive reviews then, even my own?

Well, if you however value charming characters, feelings and you are a more emotional, empathetic kind of person, keep reading. There is potencial you will love this game.


Valiant Hearts excels in many ways. It has gorgeous comic style, cartoonish graphics. It is very polished. The characters have their story and it's very easy to empathize with them. But for me the most interesting feeling the game teaches you is there are not good or bad sides in a war. There are just people dying and suffering, both inside and outside the trenches. And there are too some nice persons caught into the nightmare the war is.


Because of the negative points listed at the start I wont give it a 9/10 like other players, but maybe a solid 7,5/10

One of the saddest games I have played. The visuals highlight how barbaric WW1 was and how awful war is in general. This game will tug on your heart strings.

Loved the art style of this game, well worth it just for that. Puzzles were fun and varied, but did tend to repeat a bit too often. I wouldn't have minded if it was shorter in order to keep the mechanics from getting repetative. The story was outstanding, I love how character arcs overlap and combine. Would highly recommend for people who like simple puzzle games with a focous on story.

Valiant Hearts is a 2D WW1 puzzle game the art style makes the game almost lighthearted, like you're 'playing' a comic book. This game is a masterpice Ubisoft should make more games like this in placea of one the annual Assassin's Creed games. By far the best Ubisoft game i've ever played only downside is Uplay.
