Valiant Hearts - The Great War - The Review

Valiant Hearts: The Great War is a puzzle adventure video game developed by Ubisoft Montpellier, and published by Ubisoft. Much like other Ubisoft titles, you launch the game through Steam, and then you use Uplay which then uses steam to launch the game.

The pictures for the achievements look really nice.

What surprised me most about the game was that there was Russian or something under my Uplay activity. I went to the Uplay website to change my password believing I had been hacked, but whenever I tried to change anything, I was given a blank page. It's reassuring to know that if my account has been hacked, whoever was trying to access my stuff would probably have trouble getting to it.

The font used for the error message when launching the game was both eye catching and easy to read. Steam is also giving me trading cards occasionally which is nice. I'm also racking up gameplay time with it somehow. I guess it's teaching me that life is the only game worth playing.

Some of the puzzles were a bit beyond me, but I tried to solve them myself without resorting to walkthroughs. I want the full experience the developers wanted from me. I don't play many puzzle games, admittedly, so some of you may fare better than me. I still haven't beat the last bit of the game, though, which has the protagonist figuring out how to launch the game.

All in all, it did pass ten minutes of time in my life that I'll never get back, and it did allow me to vent my anger as I expelled numerous verbal obscenities. I just wish the game was a bit longer as it ended before I could truly grasp the genius of its creators.
