Valiant Hearts The Great War 

 

At first glance Valiant Hearts The Great War was something Family Friendly Gaming decided to avoid. An explosive war based video game raised too many red flags. However someone at Ubisoft explained Valiant Hearts The Great War to me. I changed my mind and gave this home console video game a chance.

I should get a few things out of the way. Valiant Hearts The Great War is based on World War I. The first World War. I know gamers are accustomed to playing games based on World War II. It is nice to see the video game industry and Ubisoft branch out to a different war. This is a downloadable only video game costing around $15.00.

Valiant Hearts The Great War is told from the perspective of multiple different characters. At times their stories will cross paths. This is where they become friends and are reunited. There are shocking and sad moments in Valiant Hearts The Great War. There are also moments of warmth.

The majority of the game play in Valiant Hearts The Great War is puzzle solving. Get this item, and give it to this person. They will now let you pass, or give you another item. That other item is used in another place. There is a neat hint system included in Valiant Hearts The Great War. If you are stuck in an area for too many minutes the game will offer a hint. If you are still there an additional hint. Until you finally reach the third and last hint that pretty much spells it out for you.

Since Valiant Hearts The Great War is based on war, expect blood, death, violence, and all kinds of peril. Bombs fall at a routine pace and can really ruin your day. Players can attack opposing forces with a whack to the back of the head. Animals are used to assist you in this war.

There are mini games in Valiant Hearts The Great War like when the Red Cross lady Anna administers first aid. There is also a neat little driving game. Boss battles usually involve throwing some kind of explosive at the bad guy. He gets away too often in my opinion.

The story telling in Valiant Hearts The Great War is top notch. The music is generally good. Although the war sounds can get a bit tiresome. The art work is a bit on the dreary side. The best part of Valiant Hearts The Great War is the war information. I loved learning about the war while playing this game.

The real deep and important question is how family friendly is Valiant Hearts The Great War? I think we all know the answer to that. The subject matter is for sixteen year olds and older in my humble opinion. There are plenty of bloody images, atrocities, and death. At the same time Valiant Hearts The Great War puts a real human face to the war. As an adult I enjoyed exploring this environment and helping those in need.
