"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

A medieval BattlefieldProtocolGamer | Sept. 28, 2014 | See all ProtocolGamer's reviews »
This is basically battlefield in the 1800s (which is awesome) there are 4 classes archer, man at arms, vanguard and knight (my favourite is the vanguard). Each class has a wide selection of unique weapons which can be used to butcher your opponents. You don't need that good of a computer to run it (and it looks really good). Overall I find it a very entertaining game with loads of game modes and servers.
A bloody, oft hilarious battlefield awaits you.APTiger | Sept. 7, 2014 | See all APTiger's reviews »
Chivalry is a game where brutal, unflinching melee combat is the order of the day. A primarily multiplayer affair, Chivalry's aim is to give you a fairly realistic taste of medieval warfare. The weapon selection is substantial, ranging from knives and swords to giant, physics simulated flails and hammers seemingly designed to crush heads like a feudal Gallagher show.
Combat is fast, straightforward but has surprisingly depth with feints, parries, counters to keep you and your opponents off balance.
If you've ever wanted to relive the bloody moments of Braveheart, Gladiator, 300, and their ilk, this is the game to do it with. The violence is not gruesome to the point of trying to rival a gory horror flick, but you will see heads crushed, limbs lopped off, and at least one person catch a throwing knife with their face.
It's sometimes hilarious, and sometimes gruesome, but every fight feels like a race against your own flagging stamina and the enemy's desire to see you more dead than him.
The game certainly could do with a bit more polish, and the controls are clunky starting out, but if you want a first/third person medieval combat game that finds the right balance of arcade and sim, this will definitely do the trick.

Brutal Middle Ages carving with excellent gameplay mechanics duel. A successful block the opponent's attack and subsequent severed his limbs, little of which has been in the game more satisfying. Multiplayer also contains from from standard mode like CTF, deathmatch, TD and entertaining mod Team Objective, in that, for example, one of the team burn the village and then chose to proceed with a battering ram to the city gates. Mod Duel tournament is 1v1 duel in different arenas. Single player game contains only a linear training and combat with stupid shoes. Graphical aspects of the game is fine. This however, due to ubiquitous geysers of blood does not matter. Customization of characters is relatively Sales and certainly deserved a little more care on the part of the developer. You can change the colours and the selection is quite enough emblems. Unfortunately Skins none. Needless to say, the game is quite buggy and despite the recently launched DLC Deadliest Warrior, for example, was not working unlocking weapon and ranking. But if you love multiplayer FPS based on skill Thanks to the sophisticated combat system and pulls you brutal ambience of medieval battlefield, do not hesitate.

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.
Overall a very enjoyable gamestephenglen98 | July 31, 2014 | See all stephenglen98's reviews »
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.
