VALIANT HEARTS: THE GREAT WAR (PS4/XONE/PS3/X360/PC)

OUT NOW

For a downloadable title that offers that something different – you could do far worst than this touching war-based puzzle-adventure from Ubisoft.

With a beautifully-crafted artistic style and bountiful supply of originality thrown in, this tells the tale of five people all touched by the First World War, along the French-German border.

Some of the narration and historical facts are a little in-your-face, but the variety of puzzles – which go from simple object collecting to safe cracking – are an engaging accompaniment to the generally trenches-based story, which runs at around six hours.

For about 12 quid – there’s a lot of heart packed into this little slice of ingenuity.

Rating: 4/5
