Valiant Hearts: Coming Home is the sequel to the award-winning Valiant Hearts: The Great Waralso produced by Ubisoft Montpellierthis time in collaboration with Old Skull Games and Netflix. Like its predecessor, it is a graphic adventure that takes place within the events of the First World War, with three new characters added to the two already known from the first part. He Motorbike Edge 30 Ultra He put on his helmet so that we can tell you everything about this crude plot in our review!
A hell in its own flesh
This new chapter begins in 1917, within the framework of the entry of the Americans into the war. Throughout the three chapters and a total of 19 scenes, the story of five characters who cross paths is shown. In addition to the already known Freddy (an African-American soldier) and Anna (a doctor who helps the North American army), are incorporated James (Freddie’s younger brother and also enlisted in the troops), George (a fighter pilot) and Ernst (a German sailor forced to participate in the fight).
The game shows the events that occurred throughout the war, with its consequent harshness, although it manages to make us become fond of the protagonists. the cinematics have drawings-like designs, always narrated by the voice of dave pettit.
Likewise, it emphasizes social issues, such as the racism suffered by the Afro-American people at that time, with the history of “Harlem’s Hell Warriors” as reference.
Between puzzles and trenches
He gameplay it is quite simple. The idea is to go through different scenarios as levels, where various situations are presented. The most common is to find locations such as barracks, submerged ships at the bottom of the sea, hospitals and more. But in them you have to use your ingenuity to carry out activities such as using cranes, sending your dog to collect objects, hiding from enemies, treating the wounded, among others. Along the way there are objects that can be used for these tasks (throwing objects onto drop-down stairs to lower them, using irons as levers, using keys on doors…) and others that serve as a collection or daily item.
In parallel, there are other “minigames” included, such as flying airplanes and dodging all kinds of threats, rhythmic game fragments with the band of musicians that James integrates as protagonists or carrying out the entire medical process to alleviate the wounds of the combatants (remove shrapnel , clean the bleeding, disinfect, bandage…)
The controls are only based on the use of touch on the screen. There are no commands on the screen (except for musical notes), you just have to move your thumb or forefinger where you want to move and touch the objects to use or take.
In the name of peace
There is little to criticize this product. Perhaps the only negative is the short duration of the plot. It is that the rest of the points are strong: a story full of emotions based on historical events, a narrative that includes the narrator and voices of the protagonists with their printed sensations (in English and with subtitles), endearing characters, 2D animations with beautiful designs, simple gameplay, collection challenges (if you missed any items, you can play the chapters separately again) and a soundtrack that blends classical music with hints of jazz.

Valiant Hearts: Coming home keeps the good of Valiant Hearts: The Great War with a plot that adds new characters so that all their experiences are crossed, marked by the war and social context of the time, although it is somewhat limited. The artistic section is the best, with cinematics and animations that transport you to an animated movie, and music that sets the scene for each moment without leaving the narrated period. Undoubtedly, a crude adventure, although exciting, that you can live with your Motorbike Edge 30 Ultra.
