Review: Valiant Hearts: The Great War (New Gamer Nation)

There are countless games covering World War II, but very few, if any, take place during the first Great War. The most obvious reason is how easily WWII can be romanticized, where different countries came together to stop a rising madman. There are heroes, villains, and all sorts of amazing inspirational struggles. WWI was the opposite. There was no clear villain (not to the extent of Hitler at least) and it seemed every side was sitting in trenches or using outdated strategy tactics against modern weaponry. Every battle was a horrifying massacre that caused an entire Lost Generation afterwards. Not exactly triple AAA game material. Valiant Hearts takes on this challenge and does not pretend to be anything more than telling the story of a very tragic time in the history of the world. (PC, PS3, PS4, Valiant Hearts: The Great War, Xbox 360, Xbox One) 8/10
