Valiant Hearts: The Great War
Seldom has a game been crafted with such a reverence for the events its telling, but Ubisoft’s Valiant Hearts: The Great War is an affecting tale of an oft-overlooked period in recent history. Games often entertain but rarely inform, and Valiant Hearts manages both of these with aplomb, delivering a tale of four disparate characters trying to come to terms with a war ripping apart the fabric of society.
