For Honor recently came out, but before that I played around with the open beta, and I decided that it wasn’t for me. That is not to say it isn’t good, because it seems like it is, it is just for other people. For Honor is a mix of a fighting game and an action game with a focus on 2v1 combat. It is an interesting concept, but the way the controls work along with the counter/block/attack system means that you will have to put a lot of time in to get good and stay good. That is a problem for me. I barely have time to play games I like, let alone devote myself to being okay at a Dark Souls/Soulcaliber mashup.
All that being the case, I’m happy Ubisoft made this game. It is different, and games that are different need to be made to keep pushing the industry forward. All games are based on other games, so if someone sees what For Honor is doing and tweaks it a little, there may be a game for me down the line, and to be fair For Honor borrowed more than a little from other games like Chivalry. If you are out there looking for a game where you can show your skill and ability, For Honor just might be for you, and I hope you enjoy it. Though you will not see me playing it any time soon.
