For a start, the setting is fairly unique in terms of gaming, with most titles usually opting for more recent historical battles (Valiant Hearts: The Great War visited the same period, but was a very different experience). The First World War isn't the popular choice as far as shooters go. That gives the game room to breathe, but at the same time it brings the added pressure of isolation. Does Verdun stand up to inspection and do justice to its subject matter? Well, kind of."
