    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.

It just became my joy to go home and just hop in for a few duels or a long round of breach. I cant recommend it enough, just try it. it costs almost nothing now and you can unlock everything by playing, except for the arcade pve mode, but trust me. its worth it. Expand

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 game has a very limited content, even years after initial release. The campaign is utterly short, simplistic and uninteresting. OnlineThe game has a very limited content, even years after initial release. The campaign is utterly short, simplistic and uninteresting. Online multiplayer doesn’t do much better. Only a few game modes, lack of depth of range of heroes & weapons.

    Regarding the gameplay, despite that many praise FH’s presumed « very advanced fighting mechanics », I’ve found it to be quite stale, slow and not particularly enjoyable.

    The above reasons make me believe this game is overhyped. I ended up spending minimal time on it. Once I went around everything the game has to offer, I moved on by lack of interest. I respect that people can like the mechanics (that’s always subjective). However, FH’s content is poor, and that cannot be questioned. That said, the concept remains unique and I appreciate the fact that developers are trying to offer the players something new and different.

I feel I need to start this review with that statement unfortunately. The game itself mechanically is good. The premise, control scheme, and setting offer a LOT of diversity, room for expansions, and above all else, lots of fun.

    Unfortunately you'll only be able to reliably experience that fun while playing against AI or through the single-player portion of the game (which is only about 7-8 hours long and VERY barebones). The single-player mode is more of an advanced tutorial to get you familiar with different classes and factions.

    Ubisoft decided to set this game up P2P (Peer to Peer) server-wise. This means that instead of there being dedicated servers for online play, the games are hosted by yourself or other players. This is where the problems come in. The game is unplayable for many due to this because it creates a consistent and regular scenario where the game crashes and sends you back to the main menu.

    This means you earn no rewards, cannot advance your hero in gear, and cannot earn war assets for the metagame to deploy for your chosen faction. it's a shame as well since the game itself is fun and "fresh". At this point I cannot suggest this game to anyone as you're taking a very real chance of spending $60+ on a game that is broken and unplayable.
