    A multiplayer experience that offers a realistic point of view of the Medieval melee battles. It's not fit for everyone, but if you get past the glitches and the high difficulty curve, you'll find an enjoyable and addictive game.

    Chivalry: Medieval Warfare's focus on melee combat with lots of people might frustrate some, but it's an impeccably designed system that throws a huge curveball at anyone who thinks they've mastered the controls.

    Both technical and brutal, Chivalry doesn't take itself too seriously (especially with an over-the-top sound design), and it's really playable. Its only true shortcoming comes from the network code that sometimes dies on you in the middle of a fight.

    A pseudo-medieval multiplayer action game that's definitely above-average. However, it's pretty middle-of-the-road, it's something between an instant mild entertainment and a challenge for hardcore gamers. The game clearly has the potential to be something more, but the creators' unskillful design decisions made Chivalry more for the first group of gamers.

    Compared to the similar War of the Roses you get tighter controls and more game modes, but it lacks in entertainment value.

The joy of brutally killing other players is nice, but the mechanics fall short making it a slasher with little skill involved. This game will provide some thrills, but I would only pick it up on sale. Full Review »
