"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
Dynamic objective system brings team tactics and strategy to the forefront as players batter down gates, raid villages and assassinate enemy royalty to achieve victory.
Use a variety of siege weapons ranging from catapults, boiling oil, ballista, battering rams and more
Vast, lush environments that transport the player to a gritty and immersive medieval world.
Offline play options that allow players to gain familiarity with the controls and gameplay before being thrust into the action.

When I bought Chivalry during a sale for me and me friends I didn't think too much of it, I hadn't heard of the game at that point but was curious as it looked quite like a fun game and I was right! I don't like shooters too much as I am not a big fan of guns, but with Chivalry you always have a fair chance to fight back thanks to medieval weapons. To me the animations seem a bit clunky but that is the only minus in my opinions. If you play it, make sure to play it with some friends for extra fun, I promise, you won't regret that. No game made me laugh as much as Chivalry did with some priceless moments which most of the time included severing limbs and heads..!
Chivalry has a lot of potential. Enjoyable gameplay and mechanics, a truly great game that unfortunately the multiplayer part has some issues. You can play offline with bots, practice your moves. I'm thankful that it has this feature. Practice and you will be really good sooner than you think. It's mainly a multiplayer game (no campaign, unfortunately). Noteworthy feature: the dismemberment you can do while you slice your opponent. Raw and merciless, huh? Oh, here's a thing. Some servers do have some problems and some people there are annoying. There was one time that I joined a server, I didn't really play more than 10 seconds, and they kicked me out for no reason (internet speed was fine, come on...). If you find a good server, or if you purchase this 4 pack and play together with your friends, it's a guaranteed good time for you and your friends. It's just a pity that some servers are messed up. Don't think that the multiplayer isn't active or there's something really wrong with it, it's all good. The game doesn't get boring (or at least not so easy), and sometimes it's just better to gather your friends and play together rather than searching again and again for a good server.
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!
