Though a highly conventional game from a mechanical standpoint, Valiant Hearts is one of those games that demonstrate how great presentation can turn the common into something remarkable. As a straight videogame, The Great War did not wow me, and yet I cannot deny the fact that it inspired an emotional outpouring from me that I quite frankly needed at the time.

By the time you perform one of the game's final acts, a moment so brilliantly orchestrated as to be instinctual, you might wonder what it is you've learned in this sometimes sanitized, sometimes upsetting war. There's not really a preaching, obvious message. There is no obsession with the grim minutiae of killing. Valiant Hearts is a war game that recalls, in memories both cheerful and sad, that there is a person first, then a soldier, and then - if you're lucky – a hero.

As it was the tale's lack of complexity and the tension between the storytelling and the interactivity meant I didn't emotionally invest in the characters, which is what the Ubisoft Montpellier team dearly wants. I have cried over everything from Meerkat Manor to mobile phone adverts, but I remained dry-eyed through Valiant Hearts.
