As part of Sony's PlayStation Plus subscription service, free games come up every month. For March we had the likes of OlliOlli 2, CounterSpy, Oddworld and the hidden gem that was Valiant Hearts.
To be quite honest with you, all four games this month have been played a lot by me, and they are all really decent games for players of all ages and abilities. However, I have seriously enjoyed playing through Valiant Hearts. The story line caught me from the start and I was hooked, I just had to finish the game.
To me, however, it was more than just a game. It was an educational journey through World War I. I found myself stuck many a time whilst playing the game, and with the little help of Walt I was able to get my way out of a sticky situation.
The hints secion also came in handy on more than a few occasions, however Ubisoft built it incredibly well so that you had to wait a certain amount of time before you could unlock a hint, and then wait again until you can unlock the next (if there were more). That way, players are more than likely to work out which way to turn next.
