"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.

This is a quick review. I only played a couple of hours. To me it seemed like the combat system was really hard. Try and kill somebody, get killed, try to block, get killed, try to run, get killed. It was only fun because I was playing with friends and they seemed to like my frustration. I'll update this review once I play more, but I can tell you it's very frustrating to start and not be able to do anything.
For such a fast paced game there are lot of good ways to work together with your team, if you can find a good one. There are a large variety of weapons and four different classes with different specialties and with different armor, speed, and weaknesses. Heavily armored knights with large shields can easily defend areas if supported by the pole arm using class and some bow or crossbow users behind them for added support. The game modes include an objective based match, capture the flag, deathmatch, team deathmatch, team deathmatch where everyone has one life each round, and duels where people can challenge each other to one on one fights or where you can watch others fight. I was disappointing that they added a third person view as it makes it difficult to sneak up on people and helps to allows for ridiculous fighting styles where people are spinning around in circles, doing constant jump attacks, ducking and bending backwards while swinging there weapon around them. Enjoyment also heavily depend on finding a good game as any lag starts to make the game unplayable, the developers also don't do much to prevent cheating. Some game modes also seem to be played less in different parts of the world which can make finding a server you like even more difficult. The four pack will get you four copies for the price of three if you are looking to buy copies for your friends or to split the cost, Chivalry is a fun game with friends so if you have others interested it could be a good way to buy it.
Chivalry is a great game! Choose from several classes and dash headfirst into battle. Burn villages, siege castles, and defend the peasantry with brutal medieval combat. The graphics are good, the combat is great, and the game is challenging. The only gripe I have is with the community, which can be toxic at times. Grab some friends, find a good server, and don't worry about any jack holes you come across; Chivalry is just a game!
You're in a medieval setting facing off other players and cutting heads off. Oh, and i almost forgot there's a lot of screaming. But, still, this is just really fun to play. It also looks beautiful when maxed out. You'd be missing out if you never played this!
This game is best played with a group of friends. It delivers a fast-paced crazy-fun experience unlike many of the multiplayer games of today. While there is a slight learning curve, you'll soon be chopping the limbs off of your enemies and poking their dead bodies with your polearms. If you enjoy fast-paced medieval madness GET THIS GAME!
