Right now I've being playing Valiant Hearts, a game that is right now free on the PSN for those who have playstation plus. So I decided to make a small review of it.
The game is placed amidst the first world war, the plot follows the lives of four fictional characters during the war. The story is well written and all the characters are interesting, the narrative is helped by the style of the animation that even if the design of the characters is simple the backgrounds are really detailed. Probably what makes the game interesting is that the game has a lot of historical facts here and there about the war that are quite interesting.
The gamplay is the weakest part you play in a 2D plane and you change between the characters as the story advances. Now most of the time is spend doing puzzles, this usually consist of getting levers to open doors, or getting some object to put another object to work, they are entertaining but they get a bit repetitive after a while. Some times also there are some car sequences accompanied by classic music that are quite good, where you have to dodge multiple objects at the rhythm of the music.
Finally the story and the historical bits along with the art design is what holds the game together. The gameplay is good but probably too slow for those who seek entertainment and the puzzles are too easy for those who seek a challenge. At the end if you can get invested in the plot, and have some interest in the historical things it can be quite enjoyable. If you don't have interest in those things is probably better to skip this game.
Now just to wait for the launch of Bloodborne, see you in a couple of weeks.
