"Like its competition, Chivalry hasn't quite perfected the formula for medieval warfare, but it's a violent, fun time nonetheless." - IGN.com
"This is not a pompous blockbuster, nor a long-term proposition. This is about men hitting each other with swords, and the hitting part works great. Chivalry is a simple pleasure, and a funny game indeed." - Eurogamer.com

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is one of the best medieval games out there. The gameplay is based around swords, bows, and a variety of other medieval-related weapons. Getting a kill is satisfying after properly learning how to dodge and block attacks in the well-done tutorial. Graphics are quite good considering it was made on the Unreal Engine. The environment has been done really well. A lot of detail has been put into the world of Chivalry and it definitely makes you feel immersed in the game. Sound design is just phenomenal. The satisfying slice of flesh as you rip into your enemies, one by one. Overall this game is just fantastic. I would definitely recommend this game.

Much like any other games Chivalry can get frustrating at times due to lag or bugs amongst other things. However, for the price this game is definitely a must have, especially if you play with friends. Going head to head and battling each other with the different classes makes the combat varied and forces every battle to be different and interesting. The more you play, the better your combat skills become and the more challenging it becomes keeping the game interesting and new even past hours of playing. Buy this game and tell everyone else you know to buy it as well. A truly great game.

If you like chopping mens arms / legs off or a simple decapitation of the head every now and then, then this is the game for you! It has different modes, like sieges or objectives you nee to protect or destroy and yes there are a few glitches and lag problems, but hey in the end its an all good game.

If you shy away from the sight of blood, this game probably isn't for you. However, if you're anyone else, this game is a must-play. Chivalry Medieval Warfare is the standalone version of a popular source mod, and it is a fast paced brutal multiplayer experience. The combat mechanics are fairly easy to learn, and hard to master. The melee combat is some of the best I've seen in a multiplayer game, and the ranged combat is decent as well. The game looks fairly good for an indie game, and it runs fairly well. There is also customization for your warrior, which is a nice touch for those who want to decorate their knight. Chivalry is a great and unique game that is a definite buy.
a great combat simulatormirta000 | May 19, 2014 | See all mirta000's reviews »
This game is a solely multiplayer fighting game, but it's good at what it does. There are several different maps and game modes. Weapons in the game range from ranged, light and heavy and they all feel very different.
The combat is what this game is so awesome for and it's something that you have to experience. It's controlled with your mouse alone, but it's more complex than you could think. Where you swing and whether the enemy counters counts, whether you block and where you block counts, whether you're doing a light or a heavy attack counts. It's very fun to play for that sole reason - you have so much control over your swings that it will be your skill and not your stats that will land you the kill.
I recommend this game to all of the PvP enthusiasts out there!
