For Honor is a game that just came out where you can play as either a knight, a viking, or a samurai, and duel it out against others in either a 1v1/2v2 brawl, or 4v4 in either elimination, deathmatch, or point capture.

As someone who thought this game was gonna be actual dogshit and was actually surprised how much I enjoyed it when I played it, let me lay it down.

I have 3 main gripes with the game. First off, there's the P2P connection, which actually isn't TERRIBLE for 1v1, but dedicated servers would have been a MUCH better option for a game like this, especially for the 4v4 modes.

Secondly, there's the ability to buy the in game currency with real life money. This wouldn't be a bad thing if the cosmetic armors didn't have stat adjustments added to them in the 4v4 modes, and would be at least a little bit better if the rate that you earned the in game currency was a bit faster.

Last thing is something that isn't a problem with MOST people, but can be an issue regardless, is the fact that you HAVE to be online to play the game. For a game that comes with a single player campaign, and people likely picking it up for just the campaign wouldn't be able to if they did not have an internet connection. It's not as bad as the Sim City debacle, but is still worth noting.

On to the good things. The gameplay is fantastic, it's simple enough that you can easily pick it up, but has enough depth to it that makes it hard to master it completely. Think of it like a fighting game, where a newer player can pick the game up and do some basic things really easily, but an experienced good player can pull off some amazing combos with relative ease.

The animations are on point, attack animations look and feel as if they have weight to them, parries feel incredibly satisfying, the characters movement feels good to how they look, and the various movements in combat seems very spot on to how one would expect a knight, viking, or samurai to move.

The game runs EXTREMELY well, and looks very good even on low settings. A GTX 970 can run the game at a solid 60 FPS at 1080p at max settings minus supersampling anti-aliasing with only around 2 of the 3.5 usable VRAM being used. Given that I don't have a rig with a card that can run 4k, I can't say how well it runs on max at 4k.

Honestly I do believe this game is a good game, outside of those glaring issues. If you like games with good sword play and enjoyable battles, it's a good pick up.

TL;DR Its an actual good game made by Ubisoft, who would've thought

I played it during the open beta last week and did enjoy it, although... $60 is bit much for me (at the moment) which is why i didn't jump on it right away. But good to hear that its a solid game after its relase

Ran great on my GeForce GTX 770 too. had no issues and everything still looked good and crisp

And they'll tell you black is really white, The moon is just the sun at night, And when you walk in golden halls, You get to keep the gold that falls, It's Heaven and Hell

Come to find out (and also remember a part of this) thy're doing micro transactions for bullshit, when you first get the game, you only have half of the skill tree unlocked and you have to buy a season pass ($30) in order to unlock the other half AND you have to buy it each season.

I was a but off about throwing down $60, but $60 + $30 every season? nope... Sorry Ubisoft.

Heard about this game a lot, not something i could see myself playing and would rather spend my $60 on food and BDSM toys.

What can you expect, if they make a good game they have to fuck it up somehow.

Not sure where you read this but that's completely false. Most of everything can be unlocked by playing the game, and the season pass is all early access to future content and cosmetics.
