Chivalry: Medieval Warfare

"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 a first-person slasher with a focus on multi-player. Featuring competitive online combat that seeks to capture the experience of truly being on a medieval battlefield.

Great And Unique Multiplayer Game With A Large Learning Curvecombodombie | March 5, 2014 | See all combodombie's reviews »
Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is a great multiplayer game. For only $25, you should check it out. The game looks pretty good and it is easy to control. The issues is that it is a bit buggy at times, the third-person camera is mostly pointless, and (the worse one) is that this game has an incredibly steep learning curve.
Get past those issues though and you have an incredibly fun multiplayer game.
Chivalry: Medieval Review ------> Buy it or Not?koticpaxx | Feb. 16, 2014 | See all koticpaxx's reviews »
Hold on, let me just swing- HO CRAP, SORRY, I DID NOT MEAN TO HIT YOU, YOU WERE ON THE PATH OF MY SWORD.......
Chivalry: Medieval Warfare brings a whole new meaning to "Medieval Warfare". Here, it is all online, and a first-person view that really makes this game unique. So here, there's no magic or powerful staffs, so your stuck with good old fashion medieval weapons, which is fine because they provide a plethora of different weapons and styles. So the presentation isn't too bad, with the potential to have really nice graphics if you have the computer, and really bad fps if you don't. The sounds are thrilling, with such ridiculous war cries that you'll laugh your chain-mail skirt off. It's quite bloody, which can lead to hilarious parts being dismembered and dislocated. The gameplay itself is a different story. It has a REALLY steep learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, you'll pour endless of hours into it. The thing is, the multiplayer. This is what can make or break your game. If you have a good ping, and are in a decent server, you'll have tons of fun. Or if you have friends who own this game, rally them up and play together for even more fun. To conclude (that's new), Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is a great game. Just make sure you have the right computer and internet connection, and you should be fine. Also, keep in mind that you'll need to be patient to really get the flow of the game. As always, no game is without glitches and bugs, and this game has awesome ones (Anyone see the Reddit picture of a character from this game that has like, a thousand arrows stuck on him? Yeah, stuff like that). So I'd say buy it, preferably if when it goes on sale, and make sure you have the time to invest in it. So lace your chain-mail, equip your armour (Canadian, okay?) and buckle-up for a medieval ride.

I really enjoyed playing this game. The mechanics are very well balanced and gameplay leaves you coming back for more. The action can get quite intense at times. I would recommend giving this game a shot if you love the FPS genre and want to try something different for a change.

When I first picked up this game, I didn't know what to expect. I barely know any games in the Medieval genre, so it really sparked my curiousity. What I found was a game that was like if Call Of Duty decided to create a medieval game, and although that sounds weird, it is very, very well executed.
Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is a medieval game, as you can tell from the title, where you get to choose a number of classes, which varies in speed, strength and range. Many of these kinds of games I play, they're usually unbalanced due to one class being able to destroy all others (besides TF2,) But this is actually fairly balanced (Archers,Vanguards,Knights,Man-to-Arms.)
This game shines in its multiplayer, and man is it fun. The most common servers are free-for-all and team deathmatch, like normal fps games, but what is unique is how much thinking has to be done. For instance, when fighting, you can do 3 things: Attack, like normal, Block, also normal in these games, but the most interesting and cool is to Fake. You do this by pressing the button bound to it while attacking, and you'll stop mid-attack, and you can attack or block after it to fake out your opponent.
These may seem small, but this really changes the game, and makes it that much better. Not to mention the community. Everyone I play with is usually skilled in the game and brings a challenge, plus they're usually friendly.
All in all, a great buy for 25$.
Potential to be my favorite game, but not as multiplayercappincrunch | Feb. 6, 2014 | See all cappincrunch's reviews »
This game is really hit or miss.. or hit in your screen and miss on the server...
Buyers beware, this is one of those games where the community in your country determine whether or not you get to play this game. If your ping is too high, you won't have a good time.
The only way I can see this game surviving is if they start including bots in multiplayer, but clearly they've moved onto DLC and other projects so as soon as this game dies, it will likely go free to play. Bots would have truly saved this game.
