    For Honor is a game that I am not even close to finishing with. Its campaign is big enough to not feel tacked on, but the draw of the multiplayer action keeps dragging me away from finishing it. I can feel my skills improving after every round because it’s a new way to play against other players and that deserves highlighting in a highly saturated section of the market.

    For Honor offers up one of the most visceral multiplayer experiences in video games. The single player campaign is a nice diversion, but won't satisfy those seeking a full experience. Once you hit multiplayer though, you'll be hooked and finding time for other video games will be the real problem.

    For Honor is a real surprise. In terms of gameplay mechanics it’s top-notch, visually it’s excellent, and there’s a decent if fairly formulaic campaign to play through. It’s in For Honor’s multifaceted multiplayer, however, where Ubisoft has has struck gold. Testing your combat knowledge against real players, either in one-on-one duels or in large conquest-style battles, is both thrilling and unique in the action genre.

    If For Honor were a game that [] didn’t rely so heavily on its internet connection, I could rave about it for hours. It is beautiful. The move sets for each character are well thought out and balanced, meaning people who put in enough effort will succeed with any of the available heroes. The campaign offers an interesting enough solo experience that lets people gradually face greater challenges. The multiplayer is extraordinary, when it’s working properly. It’s just that Ubisoft has once again not anticipated the needs of a game such as this. I feel like peer-to-peer wasn’t the right system for such a game, and that it would have been better for everyone if this had been a client-server game.

    For Honor does a great job trying to find a new way of telling a very old and very familiar story. It accomplishes so much that it does provide an entertaining way to push you through the repetition of a hack and slash game. However, when you least expect it, you get impaled right through the heart by a broken multiplayer experience where the fragments of microtransactions and more splinter through the game, and while the blow isn't fatal now, if the connection issues aren't addressed, it will be.

    It’s a frustrating reality, but one Ubisoft is already working diligently on a fix for. Like Siege, For Honor is in the beginning stages of becoming something truly unique and brilliant. If you’ve ever struggled to get into fighting games, are eager for a new multiplayer game to try your hand at, or are simply interested in what happens when Ubisoft diverts its resources out of populating open worlds with content and into an experience that thrives because of its nuanced design, then try For Honor – you won’t regret it.

    Fun in furious bursts, Ubisoft's scrapper is simply too one-note to honour its potential. [April 2017, p.86]

    For Honor!

    Игра мне сразу же понравилась с момента анонса.После ЗБТ я убедился,что эта игра будет хорошо работать на моем ПК и оправдала гемплейные и атмосферные ожидания.Игра куплена.

    Положительные стороны:
    -Хорошая оптимизация,особенно для слабых ПК
    -Три воюющих фракций(культур):Самураи,Викинги,Рыцари
    -В каждой фракции есть свой персонаж с уклоном на :атаку,защиту,проворность,гибридность
    -Каждый герой уникален по боевому стилю и ведению боя
    -Разнообразные комбинации атак и защит
    -Приятно радует возможность эффектных блоков,парирования и контратак
    -Боевая система проста в освоении(клавиатура или геймпад - это не имеет значения)
    -Сражайтесь в 4-х режимах:"Дуэль(1vs1)","Бойня (2vs2)","Захват территории(4vs4)","Уничтожение(4vs4)"
    -Игра передает атмосферу тех времен

    Отрицательные стороны:
    -Дорогая игра
    -Отсутствие масштабных сражений
    -Нету комадных заданий
    -Командные режимы включают в себя уничтожение противкиков из 5 ранудов и захват точек.Слишком банально.
    -Незначительные проблемы с нахождением игроков и серверами.

    Вывод:"For Honor" - это игра нового поколения.Вы не найдете более атмосферную и реализированую игру в данном жанре.В жанре файтинга на холодном оружии.
    Рекомендую!

    Eigentlich hatte ich For Honor auf meiner Liste für spätere Anschaffungen da ich persönlich nur auf die Singleplayerkampange aus war und ichEigentlich hatte ich For Honor auf meiner Liste für spätere Anschaffungen da ich persönlich nur auf die Singleplayerkampange aus war und ich mich vor langer Zeit vom kompetitiven Spielen verabschiedet habe (Halo Multiplayer). Das Kampfsystem hatte bei mir aber Interesse geweckt und so wollte ich warten, bis das Spiel günstiger in den Regalen stand.

    Tja, jetzt hab ichs zum Geburtstag gekommen :-). Und was soll ich sagen, es ist genauso wie ich es mir vorgestellt habe.
    Ich werde hier nur die Kampange bewerten. Den Multiplayer habe ich ausßer gegen Bots nicht gespielt und kann somit keine Aussage treffen.

    Der Singleplayer ist eine kurzweilige (bei mir 10 Stunden) Reise in eine fiktive Geschichte über die bekanntesten Kriegerkasten unserer Vergangenheit. Bleiben wir von der Logik und vorallem vom Realismus weg (hätten Sie aus zeitlichen Gründen schon gar nicht aufeinander treffen können :-)) schließlich ist es wie erwähnt fiktiv... und genau deshalb spaßig. Man spielt nacheinander alle Fraktionen (Ritter, Wikinger, Samurai) in jeweils 6 Missionen.

    Der Kern des Spiels und der postivste Aspekt ist wohl das Kampfsystem. Schnell zu lernen aber schwer zu meistern - die Aussage vieler Spieler trifft hier wohl definitiv zu. An sich ist das System aus drei Angriff- und Verteidigungsrichtungen, leichten und schweren Attacken, Deckungsbrecher und Ausweichen simpel. Was es aber fordernd macht, ist die Tatsache das einfaches Buttenmashing keinen Erfolg bringt. Hier ist es tatsächlich notwendig mit Taktik und Reaktion den Gegner zur Strecke zu bringen. Perks die man via Level Up freischaltet und von denen man jeweils zwei vor Missionsbeginn ausrüsten darf, verfeinern den jeweiligen Spielstil weiter.

    Des Weiteren kann man sagen, dass sich fast jede Klasse (von denen man in der Story einige aber nicht alle spielen kann) sich anders spielt. Jeder hat sein eigenes Moveset und hat seine Stärken und Schwächen. So ist die Klasse "Orochi" auf Schnelligkeit und Konter ausgelegt, erfordert also ein etwas höheres Maß an Reaktionsvermögen um alles aus dieser Klasse herauszuholen. Im Vergleich hierzu ist der "Kriegsfürst" eher träge, aber zäh und legt viel Wert auf Verteidigung. Leider darf man vor Missionsbeginn nicht selbst entscheiden welche Klasse man spielen möchte - diese ist immer vorgegeben.

    Ohnehin ist die Singleplayerkampange eher als langes Tutorial zu verstehen. Zwar stellt sie eine Art Vorgeschichte zu den Ereignisen des Multiplayer dar, ist aber stets vorhersehbar und bietet keine wirkliche Tiefe.

    For Honor bietet Potenzial. Das Kampfsystem ist überaus spaßig und fordernd und die taktische Tiefe durchaus groß. Ich kann mir Vorstellen, dass jemand der die Meisterschaft in diesem System erlangt, sich durchaus erhaben fühlen wird wenn man einen starken Gegner nach langem Duell aus Finten, Kontern und dem Abwarten nach dem einen Moment endlich zur Strecke gebracht hat. Doch diese Geschichten werden sich vermutlich nur im Multiplayer abspielen. Ich für meinen Teil hatte effektgeladene 10 Stunden Spass am Spiel aber nachdem ich noch einigige Male gegen Bots gespielt habe, wird es denke ich im Schubkasten verschwinden.

    Abzuwarten was Ubisoft aus diesem Potential in Zukunft machen wird.

Then the actual work began. There the story was ok. When I would be running forward I would get a quick tutorial prompt except it stopped gameplay completely. And there was something about the cut scenes I didn't like. I just wanted to get to the action. Combat needs... Changing a little bit. The games doesn't give you enough time to react to block an attack. Ubisoft should give difficulty settings. I think they did for maybe the first two assassin's Creed games then stopped. I don't play multiplayer so I can give any opinions on that Expand

It hasI have over 800 hours logged into this game and all I can say in its current state is that you should most definetly not buy this game. It has been in a downhill slide since its release. The game itself has good mechanics until you reach the higher skill levels, which basically comes down to which character has the fastest attacks that cant be blocked on reaction. ( This game has 400-ms attacks with 30 fps+input lag from TV. ) This makes the community of the game VERY toxic because most matches evolve into spam fests or staring contests and promotes a false sense of skill.This game uses a p2p system and there have been constant connection issues since the beta that happened 4months ago, which means you can get disconnected from a match at victory screens or at half-way point without getting any reward, this with a slow progression system tied into the free2play microtransaction model is not a good thing. I cannot recommend this game to anyone in its current state. The game got its first DLC characters a month ago and they were, and still are, so broken they basically killed the 4v4 gamemodes for many people. The developers also seem to be uninterested in fixing these issues and instead keep releasing over priced microtransactions for the game. The game literally has a business model of a free to play game, except it being a full price triple A game. (+ a pay2win gimmick with gear stats) I'm giving it 3 stars because the graphics are good and the gameplay was solid until people started to exploit the game mechanics.

    TL;DR: Bad p2p system, free to play business model with a pay2win gimmick. Toxic community and uninterested developers.
