"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. We've drawn our inspiration from the intensity and epicness of swordfighting movies such as 300, Gladiator and Braveheart and we want to bring that experience to the hands of a gamer.
The game is skill-based and controls like a FPS, but instead of guns and grenades, players are given swords, shields, maces, battleaxes and longbows. Set in a fictional yet gritty and realistic world, players will fight in fast paced online battles besieging castles, raiding medieval villages and fighting for glory in the arena with up to 32 players.
Deep melee combat system provides players with a huge range of responsive combat options
Adjust your attacks and blocks in real time with the mouse for precise and full control of the action
Wield an arsenal of up to 60 brutal weapons ranging from broad swords and battle axes to longbows and javelins

To begin with, i must admit i didn't really get into the game the first time i played it, but as the time passed by i could not avoid spending lots of hours trying to improve and get to a next level. The game offers what many gamers had always dreamed on, epic medieval battles, with original an enjoyable game dynamics and funny dialogues, interesting objectives where every player plays an important role in order to succeed. Customization is not the best but at least you get to personalize a few things (Weapons are all unlockables). Graphics are very nice and the game is well optimized. It is also modable, which is nice due to of the good mods out there. Quite easy to learn (it offers 1st person as well as 3rd person mode!) together with a nice community!. Overall you get to have a great time if you decide to invest some time into it. GL HF

Not many kickstarter games turn out to be good enough for your investment , but Chivalry Bedevil Warfare was totally investing into ,and it's a fresh experience away from all the modern warfare shooters and sci-fi First person Gimmicks that are flooding the gaming market today ,with it's interesting take on melee combat and timed moves,blocks and swings. the battles are absolutely brutal and hectic , you start off the round by choosing your time of weapon depending on your play style , many weapons are available from ranged to extreme close combat , heavy 2 handed swords , bows and daggers, as well as protection like shields, all dispersed in 4 distinct classes (Archer , Man-at-Arms,Knight and Vanguard). the game also has a very gory dismemberment system that depends on the direction of your blows , nothing is more satisfying than seeing your foe's head rolling on the floor after a successful swing with your claymore, Chivalry offers few types of gameplay with differ from objective modes and free for all modes or team death match . map design is key , as the locales are very authentic and beautifully designed and offer a unique look to the game using the Unreal engines capabilities . a very well executed game and blood pumping combat that keeps you on your toes , but it may not be for everyone who;s looking for one button cheap finishers , if you're into hardcore simulators, this is worth checking out.
First person slasher!!!killgreen1 | Nov. 14, 2014 | See all killgreen1's reviews »
Fun first person slasher game which is mainly multiplayer. So as you already guessed it this game sets in middle ages. There's 2 teams the Agatha Knights and the Mason Order. And you can choose from these following classes: Archer, Man-at-Arms, Vanguard, Knight. Every class has it own weapons. Also this game has a lot of different multiplayer mods like: Free For All, Duel, Team Deathmatch, Last Team Standing and more. The gameplay is smooth, controls are easy. Graphics are well made, Soundtrack of the game is good. For new players it could be hard to even get a kill, but with some practice they will also start killing their foes. In overall this game is great. But it's not something I would play everyday. So if you want a good first person multiplayer slasher get this game, you wont be disappointed.

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.
