For Honor is a game that shows you a new experience in a fighting style type of game and it is doing that in a really great way. You have 3 factions and 12 characters to play, with 6 more characters coming out this year. Ubisoft is doing a good job with following the game and it has been no dissapointment whatsoever for 60$
What is good about the game?:
-You have a 12 characters that are designed good in how they fight and how they look, and more to come
-You have 3 factions which makes you feel you are a part of something while also makes a commuity growing.
-Graphics are good and up to date.
-The maps look great and more to come.
-It has a simple feel to the combat, yet also showing great depth making this a fighting game EVEN casuals can enjoy.
-Not the best story, this is a subjective point and i'v heard alot of people actually enjoying the campaign. I don't drag the game alot down in score just because of a bad campaign (IMO) because this was displayed as a multiplayer game. The story gives you no feel for the characters, no attachments whatsoever and tells a tale of a warmongering knight, you are given 6 chapters for each faction and the "missions" you will be doing are rather boring. The only good thing is the cutscenes and some of the voice acting.
-Repetitive. The game is repetitive and will get boring after a certain amount of time, just like any other fighting game. I'v played this game for about 240 hours now and i can certainly see the interest of the game dropping down, atleast for me. This has not only something to do with how repetitive the game feels but also the balance and how rewarding it feels to win a match.
-Balance. This is ubisofts first attempt on a fighting game and it really shows. The balance in this game is something that can OFC be fixed, and in every fighting game you will have some kind of unbalancement. Some of the matches feel cheap and it feels like you cant do anything except taking a blow, just because you picked a character that does not have great tools.
-The feeling of reward. There just is no feeling of reward in this game, you win a match and you're like "huh, i guess i won" and will shrug it off. In SFV or MKX i will get the victory with reading the opponent correctly and executing a combo that i'v practiced on, this will really get me riled up! I REALLY miss that feeling in For Honor, and my guess is that it is way to simplistic and you can cheese your way out of most fights, the challenge is not that great when it comes to players, sadly. I will say that they are going to add ranked and tournament mode which will make this game more competitive and maybe even more rewarding, but until then. This is still a problem.
My reasons for judging the game are subjective and the only reason i post this is to have my say in the matter. Some people praise this game WAAAAY too much and others hate on it too much.
I hope this review is a little more helpful than your "avarage" metacritic user reviewer.… Expand

The game is much better than ACR, ACR gave me no experience whatsoever in anything, i played through it and i thought it was **** AC III is much more better, maybe the people are acting like everyother, but what the hell would you expect them to do? make every citizen a personality....
I think this game is amazing.… Expand
