Tech giant Microsoft and Japanese firm Sony both announce free downloadable video games every month exclusively to Xbox Live Gold subscribers and PlayStation Plus members.
Forbes said, "Valiant Hearts is a really different little Ubisoft title, mixing 2.5D puzzling with a real sense of sadness over the horrors of WWII. The art style is really terrific, but this isn't a traditional war game."
For The Walking Dead, the video game is described more as an interactive move than a traditional video game because it forces players to make tough decisions at a very limited amount of time. The game is touted to present a significant parallel universe to both the comics and the hit TV series.
The report added, "Ground Zeroes is the fairly short prequel to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. If the relative shortness of the game turned you off from buying it at release, the price-tag now should convince you to download. It's a tiny affair compared to The Phantom Pain but it's still top-notch gameplay. Not sure how it performs on Xbox 360 but it was lovely on PC."
