FOR HONOR

Ubisoft



Fire at Will!

FWATOONG!

OW!

Poor Will.

Heís not the only one to cop arrows to the knee and elsewhere in this natty medieval kill-fest though. Itís a time of war. In fact, itís been a time of war for so bloody long that they donít even really know what theyíre fighting for. But fight they must!

They? That would be the three factions going at each other hammer and thongs in whatís essentially a giant land grab. There are The Warborn (Vikings), The Chosen (Samurai) and The Legion (kerniggets!) Curiously, none of them have the ability to jump.

If you dig a solo experience then each of the three has their own six-part story to play through, which are in many ways elongated tutorials Ė but still fun to assail. The copious tutelage of myriad finesses to many moves is handy, seemingly harbouring the intention of preparing you for the main event Ė online multiplayer, complete with five different modes to conquer.

Things play out much like one of Koeiís Warriors games spliced with the subtleties/complexities of Street Fighter combos. You can get away with mashing for a while, but it wonít be long until youíre utterly endeadened due to your ignorant hamfistedness. Those tutorials we mentioned? Seriously, live them. Some strategic nous wonít go astray, either.

Most everything you do that isnít really dumb earns steel (for levelling up) or perks (fun stuff), which tend to be handy when youíre down on your knees as another Viking/Samurai/Kernigget is ripping you a new one.

Often stunning to gawp at, and really quite a blast to play once you do a spot of learning, weíve definitely had worse melee action than For Honor. Anyway, weíre off for another slash...

Oh, running away, eh? You yellow bastard! Come back here and take whatís coming to you! Iíll bite your legs off!

take me back to the start...
