    A brilliant mix of high skill and low comedy, and the best medieval combat game out there.

    Torn Banner and Tripwire Interactive have poured no shortage of love into Chivalry 2's environments, objectives, classes, and player customization. It’s that dedicated level of support that will keep me coming back to the game and crossing swords for a long time to come.

    Chivalry 2 was a pleasant surprise, and something totally different in the PvP realm for me. There are a few bugs that need to be fixed, but the maps are gorgeous and the gameplay is engaging and fun. The humor and endless ways you can die are very appreciated.

    As is the case with many good multiplayer games, the game itself is well made, but mileage may vary with your actual experience playing it. Mechanically, I was impressed with the depth and breadth of everything that you get to play with. Combat itself is incredibly detailed, and the capabilities to have such a compelling game in a crowd of warring factions is impressive. However, the chaos of the battlefield may be a dealbreaker for you; you may find it compelling, or you may find it frustrating. At best I can say it is part of Chivalry 2’s charm, but I’m not able to say that I always appreciated it. Regardless, the specific flavour of madness it provides makes for a fun, violent time, even amongst the varying degrees of chaos.

    Chivalry 2 offers up some exciting, large-scale battles, and a variety of melee weapons at the ready. The balance is almost there, with archers perhaps being too powerful due to their generous aiming. The automatic team balancing system does remove some of the pressure of winning or losing, which can be a net positive. So, unleash a battle cry and join the fray!

    Chivalry 2 delivers plenty of intense, blood-soaked action, without taking itself too seriously. But you might eventually want to do more than blindly swing a sword around.

    Chivalry 2 is a rambunctious, bloody, and slapstick multiplayer action game that is perhaps a little bit chaotic for its own good. With a deep combat system that doesn’t get a proper showing due to a lack of a duelling mode, and a proliferation of archers who sap a lot of the fun out of the game’s messy brawls, Chivalry 2 is a hair away from being great. Whether it stands the test of time will depend on how much attention Torn Banner gives it over time.

    This puts Mordhau to shame. Is it simpler? Yes. Does that make the game any less fun? Hell no.

    This puts Mordhau to shame. Is it simpler? Yes. Does that make the game any less fun? Hell no.

    Running into battle, I wielded a giant axe and swung wide, accidentally hitting a teammate but also slicing through two enemies before they land a blow on us. The one closest to me swings erratically and I lift the axe and bring it down on his head, killing him. His friend charges me but I quickly block his attacks and catch him with a slash - but suddenly an oilpot gets thrown at us and we both go ablaze.

    In the heat of the moment, thinking I'm already dead, I simply jump through the wall of fire and rush the enemy I engaged earlier and cut him down in the madness. Reinforcements were right behind him and make their way to me - swords branded and in the midst of swinging. And in the fury of the moment I swing wide again and slash all three before getting hacked to pieces in their next barrage of attacks. And that's only ONE moment of the match in this f**king masterclass of a multiplayer game - only one point off for not having crossplay lobbies implemented.

    Tl:dr - this game is amazing and so much better than chiv 1 or mordhau

The developers may not play it. There is no other explanation for such problems. They released patches, so what? The balance has been flawed. The saddest thing is that Canadian developers have been frustrating for years... Hope you fix the game. Expand

    The game is amazing, lots of fun. The party system is horrendous. I could a bar of drunks into a straight line better than these guys can make a party / invite system.
    If you have no friends, play the game.
    If you have friends to play with, go play literally any other game and avoid Epic.
