Valiant Hearts: The Great War Review
Strong storyline which packs an emotional punch
UbiArt visuals are gorgeous
- Point-and-click puzzles aren't the best
- Some of the touchscreen controls are a bit stodgy
The gameplay doesn't quite live up to its presentation, but Valiant Hearts is an heartfelt and engaging story which aims for the heart.

While it's fair to say that World War II has been covered from every possible angle in the gaming world, the First World War is comparatively under represented.
Valiant Hearts: The Great War not only focuses on the first major global conflict of the 20th century, but does so in a far more subtle and nuanced way than your average military shooter.
As Pocket Gamer's Jon Munday discovered, this point-and-click adventure uses both humour and solemnity to tell its story, a combination that works on a number of levels.
