    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.

Yes, there are still occasional connection errors and the stability of the game is still not perfect. But every update has indeed improved the situation, and they are indeed listening to players. Check the subreddit if you're in doubt. Things are actually looking up. It's like deja-vu from Rainbow Six: Siege really. Expand

However, that is a significant aspect of the game, so I have to dock it points as well. You guys, have GOT to start providing servers for AAA titles.... was saving that money by cheaping out on dedicated servers really worth all these negative reviews UBISOFT??? Apart from those issues though, This is proving to be an original, innovative take on melee combat, and I am a big supporter. Expand

    A very good game with very bad decisions.
    I have 100+ hours of gameplay and the biggest issue right now is p2p which make you sometime impossible to react to fast attacks. The second problem is the balance, some characters are overpowered if played right, because you can't do nothing against them if they take you in the right spot.
    I'll start to boycott any Ubisoft games from now on until they start thinking with their head and not arse.

    Campaign history would be good, but otherwise a useless game. It's not even worth to play it's multiplayer game mode.

You lead the mouse to the left, in the stand selects the top, the same situation with the movement to the right. During the fight it is not possible to think about the movement and everything should happen quickly, but you can not normally defend from the sides. Add: There is no balance in the game. I just logged in, and my opponent was a man with 2,000 hours... Perfect. So the game is going on what year, and from the bugs or cheaters (hackers), she did not get rid of. Caught a bunch of players who simultaneously beat and pierce protection. That is, begin to hit, you get damage, although standing in the block, and the enemy strike was simple, not piercing. In general, it's just another squeeze of your money and nerves, I do not recommend it to anyone! / Игра полностью не адаптирована для игры с помощью мыши. Ты ведёшь мышью влево, в стойке выбирается верх, такая же ситуация с движением вправо. Во время боя невозможно думать о движении и все должно происходить быстро, но нормально защищаться с боков не получится. Добавил: В игре нет баланса. Я только что вошел в игру, и моим противником был человек с 2000 часов... Идеально. Итак, игра вышла в 2017, а от багов или читеров (хакеров) она так и не избавилась. Попалась куча игроков, которые одновременно бьют и пробивают защиту. То есть начинает бить, получаешь урон, хотя стоишь в блоке, а удар противника был простым, не пробивающим. В общем, это очередное выжимание ваших денег и нервов, никому не рекомендую! Expand
