    Presenting the lore of Robin Hood in a whole new way, there’s a really fun and unique game in Hood: Outlaws and Legends. While it has a number of balancing issues that can impact matchmaking in various ways, it’s all wonderful when it works. Hood is a game that frustrated me on numerous occasions, but was also one of the most thrilling and distinctive multiplayer stealth experiences since Assassin’s Creed’s multiplayer modes. With some long term love and care, Hood has a ton of potential to really stand out. Hopefully that means the growth of the community with it in order to establish the kind of healthy player base that a multiplayer title needs.

    Lacking a story, bot matches, or any other form of single-player content, Hood: Outlaws and Legends is committed to a very specific multiplayer model that may or may not have legs. The game feels unbalanced, populated by a large number of surprisingly high-level players wreaking havoc on newbies, and squads interested in subverting the flow of gameplay. Some of these issues will get ironed out in time with tweaks to balance and matchmaking but what remains is still a fairly limited experience even under ideal circumstances. Additional modes, a wider variety of classes and especially, some sort of alternative to PvP combat would all potentially bring Hood: Outlaws and Legends’ fundamentally solid gameplay to a wider audience and give it a chance at longevity.

    Hood: Outlaws & Legends features an impressive amalgamation of gameplay elements that will have you hooked. However, its overall gameplay loop will start to become monotonous sooner than you'd hope due to its repetitious nature.

    Hood: Outlaws & Legends does not make enough of its good opportunities and disappoints with monotonous rounds and small scope.

    Hood: Outlaws & Legends has a strong premise on paper and at times is fun and exciting, but its gameplay shortcomings mean that it never reaches its full potential.

    There’s a framework for a good multiplayer game here in Hood: Outlaws & Legends, but it needs tweaking and building upon to truly give it legs. A PvE mode that actually awards progression would be welcome, too. As it stands, the clunky close combat, somewhat unbalanced characters, and a single match type results in a game that doesn’t quite meet its potential. Despite its frustrations though, it’s at least fun to play – well, until the action starts to begin feeling repetitive, which doesn’t take all that long unfortunately.

    Hood: Outlaws & Legends tries too hard to mesh different game types into one unified multiplayer experience, and its lofty ambitions get buried under clashing elements. What could have been an exciting co-op title ended up a frustrating slog, and in a heist — whether it’s a movie or a game — if the main caper ain’t good, the rest doesn’t matter.

Couldn’t put the game down all weekend. Once you get a grasp of the game’s mechanics and character specialties, it gets even better. Give it a chance past the first few multiplayer games and you’ll be hooked. Even better if you have a regular squad to play with.

    I can’t think of a better 4v4 multiplayer game made since Factions in Last of Us. More of a strategy based game with a building intensity level until the last seconds of the game. Give it a chance!

And this game needs more support in the gaming community, because frankly its outstanding. Its rare that I go to sleep thinking about a game. But this is like chess but with a bow and arrow and a death hammer. The stategy and gameplay of this new style of pvp is incredible and I am truly addicted. It also looks and feels outstanding, with force feedback on the triggers its next level and truly pushing the envelope of gaming . I cannot recommend it enough. Its takes awhile to formulate in your brain, but when it does, I guarantee you will be hooked. Well done guys, on making a truly unique and enjoyable gaming experience. Expand

    Totally addictive game, once you understand the different characters and their abilities. No server issues which is amazing, after repeatedTotally addictive game, once you understand the different characters and their abilities. No server issues which is amazing, after repeated disasters cough Cyberpunk, Anthem etc. If you have a good team jump in and enjoy the mayhem. Cross play is available for all platforms as well. Graphics are excellent on PS5, and if you are looking for something new and different, do not hesitate to join in the fight.

    All that being said.... Matchmaking needs to be improved and would be nice to see overall character statistics for your game play added in the dlc... like you would see in COD or other games. Only other slight bone to pick, is an ability to keep team together if you stumble across a good random group.

    Some seriously unjustified negative ratings here, yes the game isn't perfect, yes there's some extremely good players (because the pros knowSome seriously unjustified negative ratings here, yes the game isn't perfect, yes there's some extremely good players (because the pros know it's good). Don't flame because you can't play a game. This game is challenging, rewarding and frustrating (when players are better than you) but when it clicks and your team is on point there's nothing else like it. As a base to build on it has a solid foundation, visuals are beautiful (if you get time to appreciate it) the concept is excellent and it's easily the best value game I've bought. If you're not down with multiplayer and strategy, this may not be your thing...but if you're looking for something new to dive into you're in the right place.
    hopefully I'll see you in the heist.....(before you see me)
