It almost makes up for how you quickly start going through the motions of obvious puzzles peppered with the odd COD-esque moment or two just to get to the next part of the plot. Without spoiling much, Ubisoft has managed to pull of a poignant tale that will have you playing till the very end.

This isn't just a WWI game; it's a WWI game releasing on its centenary and intended to commemorate, not simply recreate, those events. It does that wonderfully, musical car chases, duff puzzles and all. The level of research evident here, the fact that the story never takes sides, never asks you to shoot identikit soldiers and never credits you, the player, with turning the tide on the conflict, is a big deal.

Ultimately, that story-game switch comes a little too often, every truly heartfelt moment balanced by crowbarred button-mashing. It's an uneasy mix, and an unnecessary one. The tale behind all this is more affecting than such a simply-constructed game could hope to be.
