For Honor — Review

Remember when you were a kid and would argue over who would win in a fight between Batman and Superman or cowboys and ninjas?  Ubisoft’s latest game asks you a similar question: knights, vikings, or samurai?  For Honor was on my most anticipated list for 2017 and after almost 20 hours of play, the hype was real.  It’s a simple to learn, hard to master fighting game with some downright brutal combat.

Victorian era London.  Knights of the Round Table.  Seemingly impossible weaponry used to keep human/werewolf half-breeds at bay.  Sounds fun, right?  The Order: 1886 has a cool premise and, if the trailers are anything to go by, some absolutely stunning visuals.  But, it was attacked before it was even release for things like 30 FPS, black bars on the top and bottom of the screen, and a short campaign.

So, is Ready at Dawn’s PS4 debut worth playing right now?  I’m torn.  While I enjoyed The Order: 1886, it’s tough to say yes.
