For Honor Is A Decent Hack-And-Slash Game But Thrives In Its Multiplayer Mode

Ubisoft’s latest game, which acts as the historic hack-and-slash game, reminiscent of other games that use precise, strategic, one-on-one combat much like ‘Dark Souls’. However, the game also explores the addictive gameplay mechanism from games like ‘God Of War’ and ‘DmC’ that blends perfectly with the strategic one-on-one battle mechanism. It is a cohesive package but does it fare will with the rest of the game? Let’s find out.

The game is set in a world which flirts with history in a fictional sense and involves Vikings, Samurais and Knights. All of them have been thrown together into a battlefield and they are fighting with each other for a thousand years. The story involves a god of war ‘Appollyon’ however there is no other detail mentioned as you play along with the story. It felt like the campaign mode was more of a glorified, long and detailed tutorial for trying to find the right class for you and discover different types of fighting styles.

Not all is that bad, though. It is worth playing the story mode if you want to take a few notes about the plot. However, the combat mechanism is that star attraction here with all its brutal intricacies. You can form an attack from three stances and also learn how your enemy responds to it. You need to learn your enemy’s movements if you want to win a fight. You will need to learn how to defend yourself, how to parry, learn how to break your enemy’s guard. You will also need to be aware of your surrounding and use it to your advantage when facing multiple enemies at once. Once you have mastered these skills, you are ready to test them against real people in the multiplayer mode.

While the campaign mode of ‘For Honor’ is less than spectacular, the game really shines when played online. The multiplayer mode is where the game is the strongest as you utilise all the skills you’ve learned in the campaign mode. Dominion mode is by far my favourite mode where you and your teammates have to capture territories to win. The 2v2 survival matches were a visceral experience when you sized up your enemy and became a part of a beat-em-up bout. This is not a game where you have to simply shoot your enemy much like any other FPS game, here you have to think and take action accordingly.

Now that you know how the game works, you should know that there is a lot of grinding involved in order for you to progress in your class. Each class is playable from the beginning but certain models are restricted and you will need to work hard to unlock everything. You can, however, use microtransactions to hurry your progress up by buying virtual currency to purchase upgrades, steel or some other items that are required to complete daily tasks. 

Andrew’s PC Experience 

Let’s get one thing straight, ‘For Honor’ isn’t a bad game. Personally, I had a lot of fun learning the combat system and slicing and dicing my way through a whole horde of cannon fodder. But, as soon as the novelty wore off, I found myself rather bored with the overall content of the game.

As far as graphics go, ‘For Honor’ looks goddamned amazing! I ran the game on a GTX 970 and it was incredibly well optimized for the PC. You can see the sparks fly off your sword when you clash with an enemy combatant and feel every blow landed. The one big problem I have with the game is that it’s repetitive... painfully repetitive. If you are excited about the single player campaign then you’ll be incredibly disappointed. The multi-player is where the game truly shines. It forces you to get good at countering, parrying and planning out your strategy when confronted with a real-life player.

The game is also relatively linear, which means that the developers concentrated on making every environment look like you’ve stepped into the medieval age. On the PC, the game runs at a steady 60 frames per second and not once did I ever experience any frame rate dips. I’ll say it again; Ubisoft optimizes the shit out of their games for the PC. If you are looking for a decent hack and slash experience with excellent graphics and a robust multiplayer world, then ‘For Honor’ is just the game for you. But, if you’re looking for a deep single player campaign with a arresting story, then you’d be better served looking elsewhere.

Verdict

The game is a little rough around the edges, there is a lot of content for you to enjoy and a spectacular multiplayer mode that will keep you busy. However, for better or worse, there is nothing like ‘For Honor’ out in the market yet.
