      Had fun but not sure how long it will last

      I was able to play this game at E3 2015. I'm sure the final version will have minor differences but I will share my experience with the game. For Honor is very much a cooperative effort with your four teammates. You will have a tough time if you try to go "5150" on your team members and take down the enemy on your own. During my match I played on the defenders as the second defender. There were three bases A, B and C that we were trying to take a hold of. The goal was to get to 1,000 points to make your enemy army feel defeated and give them the finale blow before winning the battle. From my experience, you earn points the more bases you take over. My defender teammates would call out bases they intended to take over or defend. You and your teammates can team up on an opponent, but it will leave you vulnerable. If no one is there to defend your base, another team can run to it and claim it. Similar to capture the flag type games. There are also perks you earn as you kill off your enemies. You can head over to your fellow soldiers and inspire them as a perk, heal yourself or kill a bunch of your enemies by using a catapult. You do have the option to customize your character. There were different armor options and you can choose between playing as a male or female. There is no statistical benefit from playing as a male versus a female. They are equal matches. I choose to play as a male. I didn’t have much time to look through the armor options, but there were at least four I was able to choose from. The main concerning aspect is whether the gameplay will get repetitive. While the excitement of battle stayed strong throughout the 25 minutes I played, I’m having a difficult time seeing the replay value in the game. The game could get boring once you settle into the game and the controls become second nature. Check out the trailer online for an example of graphics quality. I did find the graphics to be crisp and well polished.

      Skill based combat game.

      For honor is a fantasy based fighting game that pins the samurai, knight, and Viking factions against each other. In terms of skill based game play the mechanics include parrying (controlled with timing) , blocking (directional input) , dodging (directional input as well as coinciding button press), attacking (controlled with directional input), and chain attacks ( heavy and light paired with directional input) While the game is fun, certain scenarios will make you angry, facing a team that gangs up on you will lead to your immediate death. In a game that stresses Honor (it is in the title after all) you may very well be faced with opponents who have zero of it what so ever. The customization of the characters is in depth and relies on a small part of RNG. Gear pieces can be awarded at the end of games or "scavenged" in boxes or bought by using in game currency(that can be earned in game/bought) called steel. The leveling process to get the different tiers of weapon and armor qualities lead to a grind, but at times can feel rewarding. Downside to this game is the ability to boost by buying different armor sets to have permanently and/or status boosts (increase in xp, steel, more item drops) at the end of a game session. This model of microtransactions is common in Free to Play game models, but in a game that costs $60, it has no place in it unless it's purely based on cosmetic items. Overall fantastic game concept but executed rather poorly in a sense of server management as well as built around microtransactions.

      Downhill each beta release

      Posted

      They have completely destroyed the game since the E3 show and after each beta they actually made the game worse and less playably, the revenge mode is so OP it ruins things to no end. The Peacekeeper is just ignorant also. She literally loses no stamina when using small attacks so it is effortless winning by playing her. But again that means their is literally no balance to the game. A good few friends and the right choices of characters and you are unstoppable to walk through almost everyone except those that are just like your team, which means the game sucks for those trying to play on a smaller team basis. So far over 50,000 bloggers ended up cancelling preorders as the final Beta proved the direction and lack of proper programming was corrected, another 20,000 have already given up playing mulitplayer and said the money spent was not worth the story/campaign mode and would only be worth the purchase in several months when the price will drop significantly, will be worth it when it falls below $20.

      Great Concept, Poor Execution

      Great concept and a beautiful game. The Fighting engine is great. Unfortunately, the released the game before it was complete and never really focused on the core issues. Instead of getting dedicated servers they used p2p which means getting connected and staying connected to an online match was near impossible. Everyone in the party had to have open NAT type just to have a chance. I believe they have servers now but much too late. instead of correcting connection issues they tinkered with the warriors. Killing great warriors and making other much too strong. I understand balancing, but taking a player that you have put a ton of hours into and making him unplayable is frustrating to say the least. Also the micro transactions are insane. My friend bought the $100 version of the game and didnt even get his perks. couldve been a GOY candidate

      For Honor is the best swords and Shields multi-player game I've ever experienced. You can play as either a Samurai, Vikings or Knights as different factions at war with each other and each one has multiple different classes to choose from and they all look and play differently. It's also not for children. Some of the execution finishing moves are brutal and could be in Mortal Kombat. They do look good though. Also a very polished looking game visually. Unique combat system with depth. And there are multi-player modes that u can play against the a team of computer controlled characters if u don't enjoy playing with other real players just for fun or to get better until your ready for other players. It also has a single player story mode for people that don't like playing with others at all. Very complete, good game and if your into the medieval time period even a little it's worth a purchase.

      First thing to note is that this game is ALWAYS ONLINE. Even if you plan on playing the Single Player. Sword fighting feels amazing in this game. At its best when it's one-on-one. All about timing and skill at that point. Customization is great. Weapons, armor, gender (on most Heroes), color schemes, helmet ornaments, and emotes can be changed. There's a chance of getting new loot after every match. Combat can feel very sluggish and "button mashy" if you don't take the time to learn the strengths and weaknesses of the Hero you choose. Campaign is okay. It's really more of an extended tutorial than a single player story I think, but has some really interesting moments. Overall I'm really enjoying this game and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a unique combat system that's both fun and easy to learn, but deep and difficult to master.

      Fun But Frustrating

      I bought For Honor caught up in all the hype and it was worth it at first. Exploring the game was exciting and collecting gear while leveling up heros was great. Then the issues began. The game uses players xbox 1 systems as the servers for the game. Anyone with a bad connection who is the server or who leaves mid game freezes game play until another "server" can be found. If a server is not found in enough time the game drops and all experiance and items you may have gathered are lost no matter how long the match has gone (matches can last 20 minutes). After one attempt at a game session of 3 hours i only completed 3 matches. At that point I gave up playing at all and havnt touched the game since. It would be fun but honestly its not worth the annoyance.

      Game is great but has some issues which need fixed

      the game is very fun with a unique playstyle. It is a fighting game in a 3d space, each character has movesets which need to be learned in order to play the game with any level of skill. The problems are there are a few characters mainly the two newist ones, which need some patching they are a bit op. There isnt any dedicated servers so expect lots of connection issues when in match making, and since both the closed and open beta that game has been tweked in such a way that the responsive ness of the character movements and the "fluidity" of combat seem to not work as well. Oh and of coarse MICROTRANSACTIONS other then that it is a great game and i hope things get patched and a good decent player base builds up around it to keep the game going strong
