    "It is very good that one may have an interest in history through gaming, but you must not let games taint the facts that have taken place throughout history. Games are like books and movies, potentially can reveal alot of truths, yet they can also run with a story from a biased perspective, and in turn will destroy any type of credibility they may contain."

    "Valiant Hearts is a good game, but the "history" element is very slight. It's not so much a game ABOUT the period of history it takes place in (World War I) as the emotions and relationships of the characters, with the historical element as a backdrop: it could just as readily take place in any other historical period (or the modern day).
