As a big historical and fantasy nerd, I had extremely high expectations for Ubisoft’s latest venture, For Honor. Let’s get one thing out of the way: Vikings are really cool, Samurai are also really cool and to round it up, Knights are - you guessed it- really cool. All three of those things in a game with an unashamedly shaky explanation as to why is the stuff of nerd dreams.
With these lofty expectations, the combat system really had to be good and I am confident in saying that this is the best melee combat system I’ve played in a game. Ever. It’s visceral and bone-crunching, complex yet accessible, satisfying and punishing. Duelling an opponent in For Honor is so much more than a hack-and-slash button bash experience – it’s a tactical mindgame. There are many nuances to learn but, you’ll be rewarded when you finally land your perfect parry and hit that stupid little Samurai in the face with your flail. (#ConquerorForLife)
One of the best things about this game is the effort that has gone into making each character unique and with a distinctly different playstyle. There’s something for everyone in here, whether you want to play as an agile assassin-type as the Peacekeeper or a defensive tank as the Samurai Shugoki or absolutely everything in between.
There is also a game mode to suit all tastes. The 1v1 and 2v2 duel modes are a more intense experience and will be great for the purists who want to hone their skills and enjoy the best the For Honor combat system can offer. Dominion and Deathmatch 4v4 modes add more variety to the game, introducing capture-points and an array of special abilities and opportunities for teamplay – this does often mean getting ganked by 3 people, or conversely, descending en-masse on your pathetic enemies to do the same. I fall more on the purist duel-mode preference but even so, Dominion provides a welcome change of pace to the duels and there can be few things more satisfying in any game than winning a fight against 3 opponents to win the match.
There are, to be sure, a few flaws in this game. There have been some complaints about the peer-to-peer hosting system and there will be an ever-present challenge to keep the game balanced and fun to play as meta-playstyles emerge. As a player of Rainbow Six: Siege, I really trust Ubisoft to get these things right over time because they did (and are still doing) a fantastic job there with the same model.I’m incredibly excited to see what new characters, events and other content they throw out over the year and was confident enough to buy the Season Pass and know that For Honor will deliver.
For now, I’m having a great time playing For Honor and I’d really recommend it to anyone. I’ll see you on the battlefield and please, please don’t throw me off a bridge if you find me.

For honor is a game that has to be played over and over again. If you fall in love with it (and you will) you will buy the dlc's anyway, so it only makes sense, to invest in this, and save some money while doing it.
Ever watched a movie because the trailer looked badass and then the film itself turned out to be confusing and awkward? That's a decent summary of this game. The gameplay itself is hella fun, and the animation/graphics are gorgeous! However, the story mode is terribly underwhelming and B-movie quality, which leaves you with just the multiplayer, which is both a good thing and a bad thing. This game was originally designed to surround multiplayer, and you can tell by how much effort they put into the combat mechanics. The matchmaking is better now than it used to be (before it was so bad that every single game was a complete blowout), and they've been steadily adding content since release, but you will still run into a surprising number of salty and/or annoying players (I know, you can find them in every game, but it's more unique here). I don't know why, but this game drew in a large sum of unpleasant players faster than most games I know. If it weren't for the quality of online interactions, I'd give this 4 stars. Once again, the concept itself is fun and the gameplay itself is stellar with a high skill ceiling, high-action strategy and an unforgiving learning curve. But if you don't have much patience with online players or learning curves, this game might not be for you. My best recommendation is to play this with friends; it's much more fun when you can chat and play with people you know!
This isn't a bad game as far as what it is trying to be. For me, I have never played a game like this. The problem is the devs don't care about the customers and the game went from super promising during the beta stage, to complete crap now. The devs are now scrambling to "fix" the game when their "fixes" should have been included in the original release. I bought this game on GreenManGaming because I love this site, but for the love of god spend your money elsewhere on this site on a game worth buying. This was the worst use of my money perhaps in my entire life and if I could have a do over, I would have spent my money on a game that isn't complete garbage.
For Honor is a frustrating game. One month in, it feels like the Devs at Ubi are only half listening to the community. Player counts are hemorrhaging and the amount of abuse on the game's mechanics only speeds up that process. There is a very high skill ceiling and matchmaking can't find enough players around the same level, so most games are a blowout in one direction or another. It will be interesting to see if it turns into a R6: Siege situation where the current game is miles better than the release, because that seems to be the current Ubi development M.O.
i played the PlayStation Beta and heard alot of complaints about the PC version but most of the complaints are about boo hoo poor me i dont know how to play against a character that has an attack they have to spam in order to have the advantage it's unbalanced. No its more like they cant use their brains to overcome a challenge more like it. The biggest complaint is no dedicated servers that could be good or bad depending on if you have a great PC or not a top of the line pc isnt gonna be that affected by oh no i got china ping. yeah it is a problem but it's a manageable problem from devs that knowing ubisoft and the way they handled rainbow 6 siege to let something that was more popular then siege in beta and from what i know more popular then over watch currently, not that the 2 have any comparisons or beef with each other; but that means a game like for honer is swaying players away from over watch and both are very great games.
