A fantastic break from your regular FPS

SpatterAnalyst | May 2, 2013 | Review of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Overflow

Let's start off with the good bits; This multiplayer game is awesome! The sword-play in this game is great, it makes Skyrim seem like an arcade game; you use the mouse to do three different attacks (stab, slash, and crush) and block either with a shield or your weapon. There are many different weapons, spread across four different classes. All DLC so far has been free! Great fun by yourself or with friends, the game still averages ~3000 people on Steam, so you'll always be able to find a game instantly! A really fun break from traditional FPS such as COD/BF.

The not-so-good bits (of which there aren't many); the game relies a lot on ping, so if you are facing someone with a much lower ping, you probably won't win. Also, shields can sometimes seem a bit over-powered, in my experience anyway!

Overall, a fantastic purchase that is well worth £15.
