About This Game

Besiege castles and raid villages in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is a first-person slasher with a focus on multi-player.

Inspired from the intensity and epicness of swordfighting movies such as 300, Gladiator and Braveheart, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare aims to bring that experience to the hands of a gamer.

The game is skill-based and controls like an FPS, but instead of guns and grenades, players are given swords, shields, maces, battleaxes and longbows. Set in a fictional, yet gritty and realistic world, players will fight in fast paced online battles besieging castles, raiding medieval villages and fighting for glory in the arena with up to 32 players.

Key Features:

  • Deep melee combat system provides players with a huge range of responsive combat options
  • 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

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is an extremely fun game with interesting mechanics that give it a great longevity. It is very fun to play.

For about 9 hours(ish).

Chivalry unfortunately is a game that doesn't get better with age. Rather, it ages like milk. After 9 hours of brutal slaughter and decapitations you will begin to enter the game's seamy underbelly.
This is due to their two different server types: Beginner and Advanced.
Beginner is where you will spend the first 9 or so hours in Chivalry, playing with those under level 15. Matches in these servers are incredibly fun to play, with everyone at an even level allows for fun, fair - albeit gratuitous- fights.
This part of the game I loved, playing nearly daily to get my fill of medieval mediation.
But then we level up, become a big boy, and the gates to beginner servers close.
Due to this you have no choice but to play in the advanced servers, but this seems fair right? I mean, isn't it good that there is a separation in skill levels?
True, but as you begin your first tentative steps into advanced matches, you'll notice that the game you loved so much is just a little bit different. That fiery girl you fell in love with turned out to be no girl at all; in fact, as she undresses before your eyes you realise, she's a tumour.
And a pretty bad tumour at that, poor thing.
What I mean to say, through poor analogies, that the advanced section of the game is unmoderated garbage.
Hey, did you enjoy intricate duels where you used the mechanics to simulate a real fight?
Not any more, now it's a lot easier: majority of players seem to instead prefer exploiting the game's mechanics by switching to third-person and violently moving there mouse in various directions to break the physics and strike with moves that are near-impossible to defend from.
And if you love that notion, then I'm sure that knowing that (at least in my personal experience) about 1 in every 3 players has some kind of cheats or hacks enabled will come as an absolute treat.
This wouldn't be a huge issue, if the devs did anything about it, such as enforcing better anti-cheat policies, or even setting up moderated servers specifically for those who want actual battles.
But in the meantime we just have to make do with a cancerous community and a broken game.

So yeah, with the state that Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is in, I just can't reccommend it.
Which sucks, because under that pile of broken garbage lies a genuinely fun game.
I could semi-reccommmend picking it up in a sale, just so you can play the early servers; or just create another steam account once you reach level 15, whatever helps you sleep at night.

Alternatively you could sit pretty until the devs decide to change some things up.
But to be honest, I kind of doubt that much - if anything - will change in the game, I doubt the devs are gonna put much more time into it.
But hey, could be wrong, hopefully I am.

So pick Chivalry up if you want some limited fun, or if you're into broken games.
Or save your money for a rainy day, or Mafia III, or whatever.

This game started off sooooooo good. You felt like a powerful medival warrior...

At least it used to be.

Knight class (Heavy Armor) got nerfed so now it gives you only one more hit than a man-at-arms (unarmored).
Same with the vanguard.

Archers are limited to only 3 a team, so expect to never get to play them.

To many DLC weapons and skins. It can be real confusing when trying to tell if your opponent is on your side (several skins run about without shirts on) and you never know what the other guy is swinging at you.

The worst thing is the "rank up" system.
It tracks your skill purely by how many battles you've been in, it doesn't matter if you do well or not.
After rank 15, I got it in a week, you are dumped into the same player pool with everyone rank 15 to 100, and most of them will be in the 30s or higher.

Play until you hit rank 15, after that the game loses any value of fun.

I did really like this game, and I put a bunch of time into it, but the developers have been making a lot of bad choices in it's updates since launch, and are slowly killing the game.

P.S. - Do NOT waste your money of the Deadliest Warrior version. It is everything wrong with this game, and so much more.

Can take heads off. 10/10 would buy again

All jokes aside, chivalry is a great game. I remember my first time playing, hardly getting 4 kills but being happy at the end of the match just because of the pure enjoyment and rush of battle.

This game really needs some more population, at least for the central United States area. Most servers that are populated now days are east coast servers that I'll do good to get ping around 80 or so, instead of the 30 and below mark. Ping is crucial to enjoying this game. Lag kills the fun. Everyone knows that.

I have a few words of wisdom to all players considering buying the game or players who are just new to the game. Chivalry is a fairly straight forward game, though there is a very steep learning curve if you so choose to progress in the game. a good 85 - 90% of the people you run into will be seasoned and have many tricks up their sleeve, thus making it extremely difficult for the newer guys to have fun and stick with the game. I've seen it many times. Example, a level 17 going against a horde of level 35's who have been trained by vets or are on alternate accounts. Usually the 17 will just quit out of frustration and never play again because they literally stand no chance. That was their experience of the game. Some will argue that "That's what the level 0 - 15 servers are for..." But, what good does that do if you have the people making alternate accounts to exploit the low level servers? On top of that, from level 0 - 15, in an environment made strictly of those levels, you will NOT learn how to efficiently protect yourself from the higher level and more experienced players. as soon as you hit 16, you're thrown out with the sharks. The point of all this being to practice, ask questions to the higher level players, look up videos, and observe.

My overall review would be to recommend you purchase the game. But do it knowing what you're getting yourself into. Hope the review helps you gain an understanding of what this game consists of nowdays. Good luck my friends.

To coat it plain and simple this game ♥♥♥♥ing sucks after getting to rank 44 nothing surprises me anymore. I see the same overused tactics like the reverse overhead and the 360 spin, it's just boring when all high levels just do this and the same loadouts e.g the norse sword or the mual. Every high level in this game is a cancerous ♥♥♥♥ constantly teaming in ffa and they will kick you if you own them.

TL-DR: Wait for Mordhau

got a heavy crossbow and started shooting enemies as they tried to cross a bridge. Killed some, hurt others and eventually I ran out of ammo, so I started charging with a shortsword. Cut a dude's arm off, and had a lengthy fight with an armored dude, was countering all his hits and was trying to stab him, when a teammate with a massive battleaxe charged through, chopped both our heads off, and then got nailed on the rocks behind him from a mounted ballista.

10/10 would medieval again

Broken hitboxes. Strange maps. Sometimes fun, but mostly annoying as hell.
Armor just for cosmetic purposes. Doesn't feel like I'm playing as knight.
