MORDHAU had such a huge launch that server issues were a problem for quite a lot of people, however in my hefty hours of gameplay I didn't experience a single issue and have been offered a ton of gold in compensation for issues I never even faced.

Even with the struggles over the last week, the launch of Mordhau has clearly been a success for Triternion and players alike. Even as horrible as I am at the combat it is impossible to deny the melee fighting is a welcome reprieve from the usual first-person shooter or Diablo-esque hack-n-slash combat. The dev team seems intent on keeping the community updated on issues as they arise, and they have already announced they will be adding more content to the game.Score: 9.0

High skill cap melee combat is equally rewarding and daunting, though the archery and support roles could use some work.

Mordhau is a slap in the face and a pleasure at every moment. Much more than a spiritual sequel to Chivalry, it's an exciting game. Deep, easy to understand but hard to master, it's a breath of fresh air for video games.

Mordhau's heavy and complex gameplay boasts a level of fun only a few other multiplayer games can offer. and although there are some balancing issues, its sheer variety and deep combat system more than make up for these problems.

Launch issues aside, Mordhau is a brutal, chaotic medieval first & third-person slasher with an engaging combat system, satisfying one-on-one duels and rich customization options.

Mordhau's incredibly satisfying melee combat and slapstick ultra-violence make for a riotously good time on the medieval battlefield, though a lack of maps for the best mode and lingering technical issues are cracks in the armor of this otherwise thrilling multiplayer slasher.

The fighting system is fun and the game gives the atmosphere of the middle age battlefield in a good way. Even though it loses its magic when playing for a long time. It has potential if future update able to keep players in the game and fix frustating bugs and Server issues.

A medieval combat simulator with a robust physics and combat system, Mordhau shows flourishes of brilliance but can't be crowned champion just yet.
