And play till the end you shall, since Valiant Hearts is a short game that clocks in at around five to six hours and doesn’t overstay its welcome. However this is fair since it’s a mere $14.99 purchase. Everyone loves a war game. But does everyone love a game about war? The answer is a resounding “almost”. If you can look past the odd issues in pacing and super easy puzzles, Valiant Hearts is worth your time for the story alone.

All entertainment media has a tendency to glorify war and games are no different. On most occasions, we select our loadout and happily headshot anything with a pulse. Valiant Hearts tackles the harsh realities of what this war did to regular families. It tore people apart and, conversely, brought strangers closer together. It’s a beautiful tale of love and woe, with a consideration for the chilling realism of war. History may be in the past, but it should never be forgotten, for the people affected truly were Valiant Hearts.

Valiant Hearts: The Great War is, to use a topical analogy, a game of two halves. One half is serious, with heart-breaking voice overs, battlefield massacres and historical facts, while the other half features comedic bad guys, platforming and a dog that does a “Lassie” and yaps at the heroes to alert them of the game’s equivalent of Timmy being stuck down a well.
