    Ubisoft have done a great job with For Honor. This version runs smoothly with the most common graphic cards, offering a really fine experience to all the players.

    For Honor’s peer-to-peer networking woes do it great injustice, for it is, in its core, a truly unique game that provides us with a competitive multiplayer experience no other game can claim to offer.

    For Honor will inevitably be a favorite title. It combines easy to pick up, complicated to master fighting and action-style gameplay with compelling gameplay types and there's nothing quite like it. However, if you were looking for a single-player game, you might not want to purchase this title. The heart and soul of For Honor are its multiplayer modes, and unfortunately, at this time, there are enough issues with matchmaking and peer-to-peer connections that you may want to wait until Ubisoft has some time to fix those problems. However, once For Honor has a solid networking backbone I can say it'll be one of my go to multiplayer titles for the next few years to come.

    While the game’s fairly high skill ceiling and emphasis on micro-transactions might be off-putting to some players, For Honor is an experience that’s truly fit for those that are warriors at heart.

    Amazing rich gameplay that is sadly let down by an overly complex UI and hidden barely there tutorials. Sure to be a long term hit. [Issue#260, p.60]

    For Honor's tactical, forceful swordplay is extremely well-executed, especially for a first attempt. It's just a shame it's attached to so many distractions, including a bewildering story mode.

    I love the different classes and how unique each style is. If you take the time to learn one hero you can beat higher level players with better gear. the game looks great visually and so far I have no network issues aside from sometimes taking a minute to get into certain game modes on occasion.
    The fact they wil be supporting this game with FREE dlc is a huge plus to me. I am very weary of ubisoft but I have to give them credit where it is due they seem to have done this game right, the only thing imo it needs is some rebalancing of elimination mode and dedicated servers so we can customize game modes, other than that the story mode is great and the online is addictive.
    Everyone complaining about P2P either hasn't played the game or they are just unlucky as I have only encountered maybe 1-2 times throughout closed beta and open beta and launch where I had a game disconnect. YMMV but my friends have the same experience. the game is so much better with teammates you know but not necessary to have fun. If you think this is a regular hack and slash you are in the same boat I was when I first saw it but I'm telling you your mind will be changed after you play it. if you enjoyed mount and blade warband or war of the roses the combat system is similar although improved. I hope to see this game succeed to it gets more content to keep it fresh for a long time to come. If you have any doubts about this game I am confident playing a few games of brawl is enough to change your mind=)

    The lack of dedicated servers is a troubling prospect, but in actual gameplay, the worst I've ever seen happen is an occasional pause whenThe lack of dedicated servers is a troubling prospect, but in actual gameplay, the worst I've ever seen happen is an occasional pause when someone leaves. The combat is fluid when you learn the animations, and while some classes are generally better than others, none are excessively overpowered. All cosmetics (apart from a few that are linked to buying other games) can be earned without purchasing steel (in-game currency). Stat-boosting gear does not affect smaller game modes; it only provides cosmetic changes. The various classes allow for diverse gameplay. The game includes a co-op campaign. The graphics are a little gritty, but they look great overall.

    The only real drawbacks are the learning curve, some strangely long animation recoveries (there is no indicator for when an animation is over, by the way), and very minor hitbox issues, in addition to minor class balance problems. Many people will complain about strong classes and certain parts of the combat that they don't like, often because they don't want to learn to play around them, but all can be learned with some dedicated practice. Matches versus players feel lag-free; they just have occasional hiccups (pauses for everyone at once) when someone leaves.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Nice graphic, nice setting, animation, story. But one question to Ubisoft - Why i can`t play this game offline? - WTF? It`s really sucks. Then i was playing the campaign and there was internet failure for few seconds and what i see? - Message that said to me "There is no internet connection and you will be thrown to main menu". And that thing was happened to me in the middle of campaign mission, so i need to play this mission from start again. Are you kidding me? Does you really think that this is a good gaming experience? Terrible - just terrible, nothing to say anymore.

    And a little spoiler, last boss in Knight campaign is just a crap. Infinite wolfs is a very bad idea. It was not a challenge - it was just annoying, annoying as hell.

    Одни из МНОГИХ плохих поделок Ubisoft, тут абсолютно НЕТУ баланса, тут нету нормальных обновлений, как и отношения разработчиков к игрокам.Одни из МНОГИХ плохих поделок Ubisoft, тут абсолютно НЕТУ баланса, тут нету нормальных обновлений, как и отношения разработчиков к игрокам. Последнее обновление живой пример, когда можно наблюдать, что из игроков просто высасываются деньги и не более, сначала раздали игру бесплатно ВСЕМ (хоть и стартовое издание, всем кто кудкудахтает что, стартовая версия ничего не стоит, вспомните о людях которые покупали ИМЕННО эту версию издания), далее выпустили ПЛАТНОЕ обновление, с ПвЕ режимом против БОТОВ! Против БОТОВ Карл! В 2018м!!! Просто мозги плавятся... Короче говоря, этой поделке прямая дорога в условно-бесплатный трэш, коего полным-полно развелось сейчас. Кто задумывается покупать или нет, ответ - однозначно НЕТ. В For Honor не окупается абсолютно ни одна копейка с сумы её стоимости. Expand

Devs ineffective at making any real changes, the defensive meta and DLC characters will always reign supreme.

    Advertising was outright lying around launch, selling it as a completely different game than what it is. Campaign is a glorified tutorial.
