"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.

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

I love this game! this game is vert fun when you can find the right servers and people to play with. the weapon progression system is good as you need a certain amount of kills with a weapon before you unlock the next in it's class, i like this as it give you a feel of mastering a certain weapon or weapon class. the bow is a hard but very rewarding way to play. i would high;y recommend this game if you have at least 2 friends to play with
So here are some great things about this game: The gameplay. It's quite unique and different from other sword fighting/close quarters combat games. It's easy to jump into, but it's difficult to master, which is a very very good thing about this game! There is also long range weapons like a bow and that can be satisfying to kill with! The animations are a bit jerky, but overall pretty well done. You can chop others limbs off, from heads to legs and arms. Visually appealing game! The sound design is absolutely incredible and the way everything is done is just so nice. Some bad things about this, sadly, is that it can be just a bit unbalanced with classes. But since that's really it, I would say that this game is very very good and worth some looking into, for the price it's good value.
Let me start off by saying, I have put hundreds of hours into Chivalry. Let's start off with the good. This game NAILS the atmosphere of medieval combat. From the clashing of swords to the whizzing of arrows, this game makes you believe that you are actually there. The combat is brutal. It's very simple to learn, but hard to master. Each weapon has its own unique feel, but they all feel real. When you master this game, you will feel unstoppable as you tear through the enemy line. Until, some jerk with a maul mashes your head into your body. Combat's great when no one is "Dragging". This is what I HATE about this game. Dragging is utter nonsense. The game uses real-time animations, so you control your weapon's movements as you attack. Sounds cool? You would think so, but it's ridiculous. This gives the player the ability to speed up or slow down the attack also known as dragging. I understand bending backward to increase the power of your swing or lunging forward in order to be more accurate, but this concept of dragging isn't carried out that way. Imagine a knight in full-plate armor carrying a massive hammer. Now, imagine him charging another knight, turning around, walking backwards towards him, bending backwards, and swinging the hammer from the ground up for an instant hit/kill. It does not make sense, and jerks like those guys ruin this game. It totally takes you out of the atmosphere. I don't hate this game. In fact, it's one of my favorites. I just think the community ruins the experience. If you love medieval combat, try this game out. If not, don't waste your time.
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 polearm 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 deatmatch 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.
I decided to give the game a chance, after seeing it on sale. Let me start with the beggining: Wow!! Graphics: The graphics of the game are fantastic, though consisting of High-Res textures applied to fairly crappy models. The way the battle field looks is very war-inspiring though. Gameplay: After the tutorial you're offered in the beggining, where you learn the basic actions of a chosen class, you get the chance to jump straight into a Multiplayer game, where you can get easily frustrated at first. Chivalry offers four classes, from which you can choose whichever you want, with the game even letting you customise the chosen class. Story: Apparently, this game is Multiplayer-Oriented, so it lacks story, but that is not necessarily a bad thing.
