The Valiant is a serviceable, squad-based RTS with a sturdy story, but it’s bogged down by backtrack-heavy battles and a bad final boss fight.

The Valiant is still a solid, compelling and, above all, enjoyable tactical strategy game that comes highly recommended for fans of Medieval action.

The Valiant is a decent enough game. It most likely won't amaze you, especially if you've played other small-scale RTS games before, but its campaign is the right amount . And if you've liked Dawn of War 2 in the past, you'll feel right at home.

The one packaged by Kite Games is a formula full of proposals, appreciable by admirers of real-time strategy, especially in a medieval setting, which however would certainly have benefited from further study and care.

Overall, The Valiant offers an engaging strategy experience that, while not offering anything ground-breaking, will keep RTS fans entertained. While the single-player campaign is presented in a traditional run-of-the-mill format, its multiplayer modes are sure to delight both old and new strategy fans. For that reason alone, the game is worth picking up.

If you're looking for a new RTS and don't have high expectations, you can spend your time here with an extensive campaign. Multiplayer doesn't have enough players and it hardly gets any better.

The Valiant is inspired by the classics, but also fails to live up to those lofty heights.

The Valiant is a competent strategy game with great visuals, sound and decent UI. The game's story holds it back due to the bland characters that inhabit it, in addition to this, while the gameplay can be intense, the excessive micro-management and consistent 'back and forth' make it far more tedious than needed. It is a game only massive RTS fans should really get.

While The Valiant has a lot to offer, not all of it is readily accessible. There needs to be a serious boost in active PC players, or the fun online modes will just quickly die out. The campaign may last around eight hours and doesn’t have a lot of replay value. While the game looks good and sounds great, only the most hardcore RTS lovers should really pick it up now. Others still new or tepid to the genre should wait for a significant price drop.

"The Valiant" give players hungry for a squad-based RTS something new to chew on. Its aesthetics are in the right place but certain design choices may frustrate even fans of the genre.
