    I'm rather enamoured by the unique flavour of online combat presented by Chivalry. It's fresh and fun, and like the very best games is easy to get into yet incredibly hard to master. I've honestly not had this much competitive online joy since Battlefield 3, and to think a $25 indie title can provide a level of enjoyment up there with a $100 million game like Battlefield is testimony to the skill of the developer.

    Excellent multiplayer slasher, full of sound, fury and blood. More object maps, please. [Dec 2012]

    Chivalry is Quake to War of the Roses' Battlefield, and those seeking a faster-paced bloodier experience will undoubtedly prefer Chivalry's type of steel. [March 2013, p.65]

    Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is up to a better start than War of the Roses. Torn Banner Studios have shunned any historical accuracy or character editing options, but their fighting system is easier to learn, while at the same time offering a surprising amount of depth. Dynamic rather than authentic, these skirmishes are much easier to enjoy.

    It offers loads of fun and a simple but deep at the same time fighting system. Still far from perfect, but it could get closer to it with a few patches or updates.

    Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is an interesting first person melee combat simulation, quite similar to the Mount & Blade series. The game made by Torn Banner Studios is funny and beautiful but doesn't have its own identity.

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

I love the sounds and the combat is excellent. There is a learning curve but getting your butt kicked is hilarious. The carnage and gore combine to make it feel like a battlefield. Expand

Has many choices and you almost never feel underpowered as any one class. Larger servers really do feel like giant medieval battles and it really accomplishes its goal. If it can fix the small issues (hit detection, block and collision detection problems) it could really improve. Is definitely a game to get. Expand

Same goes for any beat em up game.
    Does that make the game bad? Not at all. When first playing the game, you will die. Often. Mostly because you end up inside the mobfight and there is one guy swinging the biggest and nastiest weapon he could find. Given some time to play this, you will find tons of ways to counter these (as again, with a lot of beat-em-up games). Only at this point, will the game reach is potential. It does lack any visual customization or a way to discern your friends from other teammates, but i'm pretty confident those things will come in the near future.
    The visual style is grim and dark. Just the way it should be.

It has slightly better graphics, some added combat features, and more weapons. The game is VERY buggy as of writing this and the game is its beta stage - It's not a polished product. The combat is pretty decent but it feels slow and clunky compared to Age of Chivalry. Combat seems to favour attack spam more than accurate controlled hits and blocking/dodging. A lot of times due to bugs/lag or just flawed game mechanics combat is inaccurately depicted on your screen - Things like players blocking with shield before it's equipped and shown in their hand or someone parry/blocking an attack an no parry/blocking animation is shown or player's hitting you without facing you - stuff like that. Anyway it's not a horrible game and for $25 bucks it's pretty decent. If the dev team fixes all the bugs and issues like they say then I would give it a 8/10. Expand

    Can you believe that after four years of beta, this game might actually be worse than what they started with? If you didn't like what consolesCan you believe that after four years of beta, this game might actually be worse than what they started with? If you didn't like what consoles did to Call of Duty, you can find more of the same in this game. This game STILL has bugs galore, and it is now being altered to drastically in time for an Xbox/Playstation release. They have nerfed the archer class to the point of complete uselessness, and the death knell for the class came over two patches AFTER they released data showing the archer class was already by far the least played class in the game. Presumably all in an attempt to create a fair environment for consoles and "auto-aim". Amazing concept marred by inept, amateur developer that lacks the resources to create a separate gaming experience on console and pc. Expand
