For Honor gets scored an 8 out of 10 by both IGN and Gamespot. Opinions?

Personally I think it deserves a higher score. Pre-ordered the deluxe edition from Game with the official soundtrack on CD and exclusive lithography. What do people think so far? Even if you don't have it, do the reviews for the game help you decide to pick it up?

Cosmic Engine is probably my favourite when it comes to a trusted review. He did a good one of For Honor...

It's dump /10

I really didn't enjoy the beta, will stick with chivalry that can be picked up for around £1 when on sale

Really warm for the time of year

I hated it during the alpha but now think it's fantastic in the main game. I suck at anything other than Raider though.

Like most games today it looks crap

Most sophisticated/skilled 3D fighting game ever made by a long shot but ok.

Ubisoft have hit it out the park with their multiplayer games Rainbow Six Siege and For Honor creating new unique experiences.

The same can't be said for their formulaic single player stuff.

It's actually brilliant

Played the beta, really liked it, not something you can just pick up and excel in, although I don't think it's worth the current price tag, I'll wait until it drops

My son is really into it, personally i found it boring and not much depth to it.

Blimey. Maybe I'm overly harsh but it felt lacking in that department to me. Attack or block left, right, up... No real control over the weapon movement.

It's tactical, but I really didn't think its combat mechanics had any real depth.

A lot of games are going to find it difficult to compete with 'Nioh' in my opinion

Really love it! Not really liking the 3 new warriors that weren't in the beta though. I'm always using the Peacekeeper as that is what I'm best with but when I play as something else like The Shugoki, he's so slow it is really frustrating. Can be handy in certain maps though

There's combos, feints, cancels, Parry's, guard breaks, unblockable moves that can only be parried.

Every character has a completely different play style and moveset. Being able to play one doesn't mean you can play anyone else well.

How is there any game that comes close to it? The difference between skilled players and average players is large.

I've played against a few beginners in duals and you genuinely feel sorry for them lol

Yeh I wanted to like it, I suppose it's just not for me.

The thing I love about chivalry is the fact you have full control of the weapon movement and parrying, so very fluid. For honor is just.. different, and felt more mechanical in the way you play.

Mordhau looks good and that's coming soon hopefully, so will wait and see if thats any good.
