    An excellent hybrid between a tactical fencing action and a fighting game, which wins thanks to a complex fighting system and balanced characters. [Issue#272]

    For Honor is an entertaining game on the PlayStation 4 and after the 4GB initial patch which addresses a few issues, you’re ready to be transported back to the violent time of Knights, Vikings and Samurai. Sure, the story in the single-player campaign is a little contrived at times but it’s a great introduction to the game and more importantly the controls. Given that, the combat mechanics of For Honor is quite sturdy and can be very brutal at times, particularly in multiplayer but the amount of grinding and use of both in-game and real-world currency may deter some people.

    Ubisoft has managed to bring a fresh experience to the genre. It is true that we've already seen medieval themed games, but not a single one like For Honor. Solid gameplay mechanics, interesting visuals and remarkable sound effects. However, it is a shame that it lacks content, with a single player campaign that adds nothing to the experience. These lacking elements can overshadow Ubisoft's good work and bury the game before they expect.

    For Honor is brutal fun. The fighting game mechanics take some time to truly get used to, but once you do, there's a unique, clever and deeply engaging multiplayer experience to be had here.

    For Honor has big production values and great combat, but a myriad of issues - server stability being chief among them - prevent it from being a classic.

    Its deep and engaging combat system is very much worth experiencing, though a lackluster single player campaign and clumsy visuals keep it from reaching the lofty heights Ubisoft was aiming for.

    As it is, this is a game with a disposable single-player campaign, multiplayer matches that crash or disconnect as often as they complete, and a slew of fantastic mechanics that only rise to the surface in a single game mode out of a half-dozen...If there was ever a game to take a "wait and see" approach to, it's For Honor.

Everything about these three armies fighting each other makes for a great game. The unique controls for fighting are perfect. The story is a bit bland and is only really intriguing when getting into "boss fights".
    Where the game really shines, though, is in it's multiplayer. The thing hurting this game right now is the network connectivity. I'm very lucky to get into a match where I don't have connection issues or lag. Which, at the moment breaks the game for me. A game where in just a few moments you can get cut down, lag can have a huge effect. I run in and start a duel with another opponent, game studders and I get a connection icon pop up on screen, then when it finishes connecting, I find myself dead. Or the connection icon comes up, followed by my opponent disappearing, followed by a new player joining, with full health. This becomes a problem when you've been fighting that other character, you've lost health, then this new player comes in and has full health, Basically giving this new player a free kill. That's if I can stay in a game, I'd say that 1 out of 8 games I get kicked out for no apparent reason.
    In the games current state, I can't really recommend it. I really like the game, but the connection issues ruin it. Hopefully, something will be done to fix this.

The story was pretty decent, but most everyone plays this game for the multiplayer, however over the years this game has slowly lost most of its casual player base and has been drowning in high reputation (level) players that know the in’s and out’s of the combat. not all players mind you are that bad but most of said players are unnecessarily toxic and sweaty and sap out all of the enjoyment out of most every match. The combat is still very fun but it’s difficult to appreciate when the game is so unbalanced and unbearable to play. If you were to pick up This game I recommend playing with friends, even the most infuriating parts of this game are still somewhat bearable with people suffering with you. Expand
