    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.

    For honor è un gioco dal potenziale infinito... Che tuttavia viene distrutto dal necessità quasi forzata del competitivo.
    Purtroppo generalmente tutti i personaggi per quanto affascinanti possiedono le loro mosse che però risultano fin troppo forti in certi casi. Senza contare che in for honor Il migliore attacco è la difesa. Questo perché tutti i personaggi sono in grado di infliggere enormi danni dopo una parata andata a buon fine. Questo è il più grande problema del gioco, in quanto va a neutralizzare l'attacco e renderlo superfluo. Se siete dei maestri della difesa avete praticamente vinto visto che ogni parry prevede un contrattacco. Per non parare della legnosita del meta. Risulta un gioco molto macchinoso per i novizi e ciò impedisce il punto forte di tutti i videogiochi:il divertimento. Certo anche he chi ha preso il gioco fin dal day one si è potuto godere a pieno il titolo visto che non c'era nessuno di effettivante forte all'epoca. Non è dunque il gioco su cui puntare se siete giocatori occasionali. La campagna? Scordatevela. Purtroppo non presenta nulla di speciale cosa del tutto ingiustificabile vista l'esperienza del casa che vanta grandi gemme la saga di assansins creed. Malgrado tutti questi diffEtti è davvero una manna dal cielo per i giocatori competitivi. Visti le decine di effetti e contenuti surreali fatte davvero a regola d'arte. In sostanza ppuertoppo for honor non riesce a centrare il punto:l'ambiente è l'immersione medievale. È questo è veramente un peccato vista l'evidente bravura e dedizione con qui vengono fatti eroi ed esecuzioni. Sconsigliato per chi cerca un passatempo piacevole,consigliato per chi ama competere con gli altri giocatori. giocatori occasionali dunqudel gioco

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.
