    Valiant Hearts: The Great War is both touching and educational, a rich experience that lives between two worlds: comics and videogames.

    Valiant Hearts: The Great War teaches us that even the most difficult situations can be useful to learn something. It offers an emotional story that can be enjoyed from beginning to end, despite its short duration.

    If you didn't have a chance to play Valiant Hearts yet, go ahead. This Switch version is very good, with untouched graphics and a vast choice of gameplay, with the option of tactile or gamepad controls depending of your liking. We would have loved a new chapter about Georges though.

    Valiant Hearts: The Great War is an elegant mix of 2D adventuring, simple logic-based conundrums, and effective storytelling. Its puzzles are a little uninspired, while the game's QTE segments can grow rather tiresome. But Ubisoft Montpellier has told a poignant story with real spirit and invention, and that makes this an easy one to recommend.

    Valiant Hearts: The Great War on Switch adds nothing new, but it is - like four years ago - the same wonderful game.

    Valiant Hearts: The Great War is an impressive and highly educational graphic adventure, now also available on Nintendo Switch.

    Valiant Hearts is a game that I like more in theory than execution. I give Ubisoft Montpellier a lot of credit for taking a level-headed look at a period of history that usually gets overshadowed, but the gameplay didn’t get nearly as much attention as the aesthetics. If the puzzles had been more unique or interesting they could’ve propped up the story instead of dragging it down to mediocrity. Instead Valiant Heart turns one of the greatest conflicts in human history into a dull, repetitive chore.
