    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

ThisThe multiplayer is a knockout, it's very skill based and extremely fun! There is complex movesets and plenty of characters to master. This gives the game a kind of steep learning curve which is refreshing. The campaign mode is a bit underwhelming honestly but the multiplayer carries it a lot. It's a hard buy if you're not committed to the game but if you like skill based competitive games and fighting games then go for it. The devs are planing to support the game as they've done for R6:siege, which bascially means free maps and characters to come. 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.

    The Game could be great but it has to many problems and Systems that are just not working.

    The Game could be great but it has to many problems and Systems that are just not working.

    Pros

    Interesting Combat System

    Cons

    Basically everything else
    The Game is carried by the Combat system but the trash Mechanics from some of the heroes just destroys the fun and skill especially in the lower lvls where most of the people are.

    The Gamemodes are also pretty trash and not well thought trough.

    The Heroes are exteremely unbalanced

    The Costimization seems like a lazy money grab, yeah u can earn everything for free but to even grind a full set for one heroe is just too much

    So you rly shouldn't buy For Honor the game will probably never be good.

    Cheaters here and there, mostly untlimited stamina and more OP stuff.

    I wouldn't buy even if I chose to buy it or get myself killed.

    Ubisoft, fix this **** game. Really bad. Honestly I got this game for free so I don't give a ****
