A Truly Unique Experience 0

Valiant Hearts: The Great War was announced last September. It's one of those games that peaked my interest right from the start. World War I is a very unexplored setting with a dark story. The art style also really caught my eye. Now that I've played through the game, I'm here to give you my impressions of Valiant Hearts: The Great War.Valiant Hearts is the 2nd non-Rayman game use the UbiArt framework, the 1st being Child of Light. Child of Light looked beautiful, so I had pretty high expectati...

Valiant Hearts: The Great War Review: The Follies of Men 0

To the minds at Ubisoft Montpellier, my heartstrings were just another tool to leverage their storytelling.

Valiant Hearts: The Great War REVIEW 0

Link to Video ReviewWorld War 1 was probably one of the least glamorous conflicts in European history.Men fought and died crawling in muddy entrenchments, thousands of soldiers were thrown into machine gun fire just for very small forward advances, and it was the first time in history chemical warfare was used and the only defense was a urine soaked rag strapped across the nose and mouth.So it's not surprising that the video game industry hasn't tackled it in any meaningful way as of yet.Valiant...
