TotalBiscuit

"It needs a little bit more skill, it's less defensive, it's a more aggressive combat system in general - particularly with the addition of abilities. The combat can be quite fast paced at times but it still has the weight of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare"

Angry Joe

“You know Chivalry: Medieval Warfare? Take that, take the training wheels off, take the historical restrictions away and then just go crazy with it and that’s what you have here with magic and special abilities.”

Game Informer

“The premise is easy to love, and with a focus on blocking magic and melee attacks at the right time while finding an opening for magic spells, Mirage is more than just your average FPS with swords and fireballs.”

Tom’s Hardware

“These days, you’re bound to see another multiplayer game with some variation on the first-person shooter (FPS) mechanic. However, Torn Banner stuck to its guns (pun intended) to deliver competitive multiplayer with a melee twist. Adding magic to the mix makes for new ways to take out enemies without overpowering the melee combat that serves as the game's backbone.”

Force Gaming

“Having played the game I’d say this is definitely a positive direction that they’re taking it in. They’ve got the the similarly deep combat mechanics [as Chivalry] but then with the extra layer of magic they can make combat a bit more interesting and add an extra layer of depth”

PC Gamer interview

“We’re bringing fighting game mechanics into multiplayer.”

Hardcore Gamer

“After every convention, certain games seem to stand out as the clear winners of a given event. After spending forty-five minutes with the brutal, intense Mirage: Arcane Warfare, it’s safe to say that players should eagerly anticipate Torn Banner’s next title. After all, there was a reason why fans kept on flocking back to hop in and get another match in rather than seeing something new.”

  • Adjust your attacks and blocks in real time with the mouse for precise and full control of the action
  • Wield an arsenal of up to 60 brutal weapons ranging from broad swords and battle axes to longbows and javelins
  • Dynamic objective system brings team tactics and strategy to the forefront as players batter down gates, raid villages and assassinate enemy royalty to achieve victory.
  • Use a variety of siege weapons ranging from catapults, boiling oil, ballista, battering rams and more
  • Vast, lush environments that transport the player to a gritty and immersive medieval world.
  • Offline play options that allow players to gain familiarity with the controls and gameplay before being thrust into the action.

Very good game overall.
But after the latest updated the game seem to not be very good ported for mac users..
And you think like yeah there is not many games for mac ported..
Not be that guy, Iknow some about Unreal Engine, created some games just for fun.

So unreal engine is really good, creating good working mac games but notice me mac is no gaming computer, but there is some games that runs perfectly even Triple A games, but this one was just bad ported for some reason don't know why...
But it is even bad ported for PC.. But overall good game, but the bad porting and modelling takes away the experience..

The devs should focus on, created game ready assets with some low poly.

0-15 servers are good, but then it's 15-30 and then? 30-50! and from there it becomes ♥♥♥♥
Spinning more than a helicopter in this game is considered "gud" from the elite players, and you're a noob if you can't be a ♥♥♥♥ing human helicopter
The devs don't fix this ♥♥♥♥♥♥ mechanics, instead they add more cosmetic ♥♥♥♥♥♥ items that only kids with their moms credit card buy.

3/10 remove the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ mechanics and it would be a 7/10

This game is brutal, TOTALLY brutal and sooo much fun. Pretty easy you just find a game pick a class and you start dissecting people, lots of screams lots of head cutting arms cutting legs cutting, everything. There are four available classes they cover any taste of game play you have and all the popular medieval weapons, the game play is really simple it just needs some timing and awareness but you'll probably still get your head cut off by a teammate who just rushed in with the longest sword and had it swinging towards everybody. The graphics and the sounds are decent and it has multiple game modes, dueling a friend is fun oh and killing someone with a throwing knife to the head is very satisfying.

This game is something I didn't expect to be THIS good. Like, seriously, I've poured some hours in and, even though I suck, every single death feels like it's worth it. It isn't really easy to learn, it's REALLY hard to master, but every single step of the way is fun and enjoyable.

If you like medieval combat and first-person-style games, this is a must-buy.

Had to change my review to not recommend this game. Why? Well, back when I first bought it in 2013, the game was fun, great, had awesome duels and massive battles.

Nowadays? It's just a bunch of tossheads spinning about as they break the limited mouse turning of the game, as they ramp their FOV to a massive amount and play in third (wrong) person. These players are ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥ heads and honestly need to go for this game to retain its fun... But they won't, because TornBanner don't give a ♥♥♥♥ about fixing it!

Anyway, you should check out Mordhau if this game looks appealing to you. Although it might be worth buying if you wish to see it finally die?

After breaking lvl15 it lets you into the other servers. Where people 20+ levels group together and beat on you and chuckle, it's not a fun game at all after a couple weeks, it's ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.

Worth what I paid for it, though.

Well, 365 days and 365 hours later, I've decided to compose this review. This once decent game was graduately ruined by the dev team's focus on profit and not on improving the game. Last major update happened 11 months ago, when 2 maps were added. Since then, nothing. Even beside that, the game goes on sale every month at a price of 2,5 euros or something. Ruined by elitists, noobs, and the catasrophycal policy of the dev team. Better pay your local junky for a hand job instead of buying this.

This is one of the few medieval themed games with a big focus on melee combat.

The fighting takes place on decent sized maps with some general objectives to accomplish. Those are mostly kill the enemy team's king, push the battering ram towards the gate, kill peasants or burn houses. They are pretty fun for both teams.

Sadly, for people expecting anything realistic, it is a dissapointment. The actual skill of this game focuses on exploiting bad physics. The combat against "experienced" players is immersion breaking as they are using all the exploits possible to gain an advantage, all while looking downright silly at the same time (knights doing moves no human being could do). It might take skill to do it but it simply isnt proper swordfighting.

You could probably find some fun in it if you're not looking for a interesting spin on melee combat, while not focusing on the realism whatsoever, or you plan on doing some fights with friends.

Personally I cannot recommend the game. I bough it for 1 eur along some other games (humble bundle) and found it quite fun for a limited time, but at full price it's definetely not worth it.

It's a very intense battle
There's a constant mosh pit at the gates
I see a figure fighting 3 men at once, taking every single one of them out before repeatedly crouching as a truce
After closer inspection i realise it's an enemy
His name is Creamdos
I stand with him and we get along, there's no fighting or bloodshed
Whenever one of my faction approaches him, he easily takes them out
Whenever one of his faction approaches, he calls them off or i take them out
We spend 10 or so minutes watching the battle and exploring
But then it happened...
A knight, in dark smoky armour approaches us
He swings for me
"RETREAT" I hear Creamdos shout repeatedly
"RETREAT"
"FALL BACK"
The knight swings at me, and hits Creamdos while doing so, decapitating him.
He stops and looks at the body
"you killed my friend...."
"now you must die"
I switch to my fists
I relentlessly assault the knight
punch after punch
He is knocked back into the corner trying to block my attacks
"FOR CREAMDOS"
I punch his head off
I crouch down next to Creamdos' body and await my death
A true love story.
10/10 play this game if you want to make a friend and have them taken from you brutally. :(

The best medieval fighting system out there, it's very responsive, alot of fun.

if you asked me if i recommended this game when I first got it, I would have said yes.

but guess what!!!! it's a no now!!!

ok first and foremost: why in god's name does this game have the option to go 1st or 3rd person? To me, the whole point of the game was supposed to be a first-person melee knight game. But now people can go third person and have greater situational awareness in the midst of multiplayer. That's just dumb. Ya, sure anyone else can do it to, but it kind of ruins what the game was to me just so that I can (try to) play better.

for a game that focuses on melee, the game feels sluggish and slow. The classes seem unbalanced and i found myself playing knight the most even though he's probably the worst. There's something about this game just makes me feel like the whole thing has been dipped in really stale honey. it's kind of sweet and all that, but it's sticky and doesn't leave a good taste in your mouth.

Admittedly, I kind of suck at this game. so that's cause for further frustration. But pretty much the only people who are left playing this and the ones who are going to dominate the scoreboard, are the people who play in 3rd and know how to angle their attacks and aim their camera so they dodge things. It doesn't seem like skillfull playing, it seems like taking the baby way out to be good at a game. I feel like if they were to disallow 3rd person on certain servers (or altogether for all i care) they would lose the tiny player base that still dwells in this game. The Chiv devs are pretty muched cucked into keeping it in in an attempt to maintain these unfun players.

all-in-all it's a really fun idea held back by abused mechanics and a dying community, as well as some bad honey.
