    "Having only heard a little about this game before playing I didn't know what to expect going in. I purchased it on sale on for about 5 dollars. The game while fairly standard in the gameplay military shooter department is all fun and good. You have a 2 man squad and can issue attack orders, have 2 weapon slots and achievements are unlocked for number of kills. Where the game really stands out is its surrealistic style of the city of Dubai, and its incredibly dark and powerful story it tells. I really did have to stop playing a few times because it really did get under my skin and disturbed me quite a bit, more so than a lot of other games. The sound effects and music are fantastic in the game. The graphics are stunning at times and are very good at portraying the beauty and horror this game goes for. If looking for something with a bit of substance and a fairly fun shooting game to play definitely give this a try."

    "This war tragedy game hardly looks immersive enough to be considered one of the best war tragedy themed games available on the market. With a more immersive look into war it would be greatly benefited. "

    "I don't think of Metro 2033 as a war game so much as an aftermath-of-war game, set in the post-apocalyptic landscape of Moscow in the year 2033. Call it whatever you will, this FPS is an engrossing and challenging game with some of the best visuals I've encountered in a game of this kind. I like that I can play it on my Mac too."

    "I have been looking for a game that focuses on more than just the typical Hollywood-style power-fantasy. Valiant Hearts: The Great War provides this opportunity by showing the crossed destinies and broken love. I enjoy the mix of comic book animation, puzzles, and action that provide insight into the actual tragedies of war."
