For Honor has some dents in its shiny armor, such as the mediocre campaign, the frugal economy, and the snowballing victories in team modes. But it's hard to be mad too long when I consider that the melee combat system is second to none and a joy to learn, take your licks, and then learn some more. I could feel myself becoming a better warrior with this deep, flexible, and complete fighting system. The more I play For Honor, the more I want to play For Honor. I hope Ubisoft doubles-down on support, because it's something truly special.

A tense, tactical medieval brawler that will reward anyone with the patience and will to master it.

A deep and gratifying medieval swordfighting sim that risks putting off newcomers. Persevere and the rewards are well worth it.

One of the best new fighting games of the last several years, and all the more exciting because of its originality and accessibility.

For Honor is as close as most of us will get to our sword-and-shield fantasies, and it is amazing when it all works. Unfortunately, networking and interface issues are a chink in its armor

For Honor is an incredibly entertaining fighter that's satisfying both in single and multiplayer, even despite the narrative flaws of its story mode.

Even the most clumsy and gnarled duel will achieve moments of greatness. And when two experienced players operating on the same wave-length begin stringing together slashes, parries and counter-attacks in an unbroken chain, the resulting exchange feels as much like a choreographed ballet as a fight to the death…if ballets ended with severed heads flying into the orchestra.
