It’s a title that is rich within the lore of Robin Hood and his Merry Men, but also, it’s amazing well scripted, offering a story that is often told through the scenery itself and the overall design of the game. It’s a damn shame, however, that many may not experience Hood: Outlaws & Legends for quite some time, if at all, as it’s one that truly tries to bend the mold, do something new, and offer an experience, unlike anything we’ve seen before.

There is a roadmap in place for future content, including new maps, weapons, and more, which bodes well, and the game is also budget-friendly at its $29.99 price point. Throw in some solid visuals and a truly fun and satisfying gameplay loop and you've got yourself a one-of-a-kind Robin Hood-themed adventure that will have you coming back for more. That said, it could be even better, and it will be interesting to check in a year from now and see how far it's come.

Overall, Hood: Outlaws & Legends is a strong effort that has a lot going for it. It's different and often fun, and when it works, it works. The current experience is dampened by a lack of meaningful content and a few balancing issues that frustrated me to a point where I had to stop playing - but I always came back for occasional matches. If Sumo Digital manages to keep the momentum going with much-needed updates and additional content and if the community stays active, Hood could be a very fun multiplayer title across the board. Until then, I'll wait to see which direction Hood takes over the coming weeks.

Hood: Outlaws & Legends has a strong premise on paper and at times is fun and exciting, but its gameplay shortcomings mean that it never reaches its full potential.

Time will tell if Sumo Digital can iron out the many creases prevalent in Hood: Outlaws & Legends. Providing that the early player-base is patient and/or willing enough to stick around for what's coming.

Right now its lifespan, that will determine the amount of continual improvements and new content to be added, lies on the fact that Hood is pretty much available everywhere and embraces crossplay.

‎Hood Outlaws & Legends is an extraction PvP similar to Hunt: Showdown in which the Sherwood Forest. You have at your disposal 4 eligible characters, each with their own abilities, 4 scenarios and a limited variety of cosmetics that you can win. Although it has power, this game offers a much less solid experience than similar games, on account of its fallacy. Among those, the biggest complaint is unbalanced matchmaking, among other server issues, and gameplay in general.‎

Hood Game: Outlaws and Legends is a mixture of fascinating ideas and high-profile mechanisms that have not been well implemented.

By and large, I really enjoyed Hood: Outlaws & Legends. The game’s setting and structure are interesting and an expertly executed heist is very rewarding, especially when you get to unlock some new progression items for your characters during the early levels of gameplay. Unfortunately there are still plenty of rough edges, from questionable enemy AI, class imbalances and uneven matchmaking that combine with relatively shallow content that could give Hood: Outlaws & Legends a somewhat short shelf-life if the developers don’t address those concerns.

Perhaps the Robin Hood mythos is not your cup of tea, but Hood: Outlaws & Legends at least tries to add something new to the team-based formula.

Hood: Outlaws & Legends dissapoints for a few reasons including the fact that players are not encouraged to take a stealth approach. Futhermore, the technical problems and the fact that you can't launch a game with a partner controled by the AI really hurts the experience. Let's hope that the additional content will be a bit more diversified.

Full of poorly executed good ideas, Hood: Outlaws & Legends had everything to be a title worthy of the iconic character on which it is based, but it fails in too many elements to be recommended at launch.

A flawed and dull game that is saved by a wonderfully tense end game.

On May 10th, after a weekend of early access for those who had preordered, Hood: Outlaws & Legends was released. This PvPvE title combines elements of action, strategy and stealth to create a unique new experience centred around the Robin Hood myth. You’ll join Robin Hood’s band of merry men, helping to steal from the wealthy and give to the poor. In the process, you’ll fend off against not only the state but also a team of four enemy players. As such, across each of the five maps, you’ll need to watch out for potential ambushes and obstacles. When transporting your hard-fought-for loot to your team’s chosen extraction point, don’t get cocky!

Hood: Outlaws & Legends could have been good game. You can see a lot of good ideas here and games with good coop is alway lack. Developers tried to make the best they could, but they messed up everything they could and that's a shame.

Hood: Outlaws & Legends is the best PvPvE game I've played in quite some time. Sure, it has its issues; the AI can sometimes feel braindead, class balancing needs to be tweaked, and animations can be a bit janky, but the adrenaline rush of the heist makes up for all of that. Not to mention, this is only a $30 game, and the developers have released a fully fleshed-out roadmap for ongoing support. Players can expect new characters, game modes, seasonal events, cosmetics, and more. And did I forget to mention that the game already has cross-play matchmaking at launch? Hopefully, the developers can expand the party system for cross-platform friends.

Hood: Outlaws and Legends has potential when it comes to its team-based, stealh-oriented heist gameplay concept. That cannot be discussed. However, issues related to its gameplay and how easily it can be exploited, as well as that overall sense that it’s not bound to retain its community for long, make it quite hard to recommend, even if I’m hopeful the developers will continute to support it over time.

Hood: Outlaws & Legends, the new medieval multiplayer of digital Sumo, a very fun game set in sweet medieval Britain covered in murders. Combining stealth and PvP in its unique game mode. Without a doubt, a title that should add much more content to avoid repetitiveness.

Hood: Outlaws & Legends is a multiplayer title with good potential, but it doesn't manage to express all its qualities in the right way. The excellent level design and artistic component end up being overshadowed by technical problems, a lack of content and, above all, a limited and unbalanced matchmaking system.
