Valiant Hears The Great War is the latest digital release from Ubisoft, in which a German soldier must find his love amid the battlefields of World War I. Get all the review scores as they come in our latest round-up.

It’s the latest game out of Ubisoft to use the UbiArt Framework engine, which was also used in Child of Light and Rayman Legends, helping to give it a distinct art style.

    Everything from a perfect score to a 65.

    I read the IGN one and it seems they took points off because it took a break to tell us history here and there. I have a sense that some of the lower scores might be for silly reasons with this particular game. If I am going to play a game based on a historical event, I like learning some history while I’m at it.

    Love how a game that is outside of the comfort genres (FPS, TPS, RPG, etc) always receive mixed scores. It seems that some reviewers have a hard time playing a game that is not about shooting everybody or cutting asses with a sword.

    As soon as i will get internet connection again, this game, child of light,transistor, and oddworld will be my first purchases for sure.

    This game looks great, in theme and graphics wise.

    “a game based on a historical event”

    From the Eurogamer review:
    “One minute you’re crawling through the mud of the trenches as your friends fall around you, the next you’re avoiding the attacks of a sci-fi mega-tank in an on-rails driving section synchronised to Night on Bald Mountain – or defeating a boss riding a heavily armoured zeppelin by puffing him about with blasts and parps from a shattered pipe organ in Reims cathedral.”

    It seems there are three reasons behind the negative reviews.

    The Melon Collies

    The game is just too sad for many people to handle, simple as. I’ll admit, the trailer almost made me cry, which was enough, so I’m not sure if I have the nads to play this without crying and being left in a shit mood for a week because of my overbearing empathy. Even still, those feelings should not impact a review.

    Edumacation

    Some are objecting to how it bores them with information. I don’t think that’s really a valid justification to be negative, is it? Are they negative towards RPGs for providing them with lore?

    Tonal Shifts

    Tonal shifts have been an aspect of literature for the longest time, now, but in this more mollycoddled society of ours, with all of its simplified entertainment, we’re losing our ability to deal with them… it seems.

    And that’s that.
