Valiant Hearts is a very emotional platform game, focused on the human side of World War 1, a forgotten conflict. Besides, this game has some very intelligent puzzles, accurate historic content, awesome artwork and good role models. But, there are plenty of dead corpses covered in blood, some soldier's and civilians die chocking in a gas attack. Some drinking and pipe smoking.
