Well well well, after 800+ I think I can finally give my honest opinion of this game. Where oh where to start, lets talk about what this game does well.
For a start IT IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING in terms of graphics, and would look an perform a lot better if optimized.
Its combat system while widely criticized, is good in some areas in most of them in fact. The concept of mouse dragging is great, however because of what it is, it will always and I mean always be controversial.
The map design mixed in with the visuals, especially on some of the Team Objective based maps is actually really well done.
I could and would list tons of other good points about this, but I am going to keep it short here's my opinion on whether or not you should pick up this medieval simulator as it where.
I really think that if you are someone that has a lot of tolerance, and is willing to accept mechanics as they are and not how they should be then this is for you. There is always room to improve in any multiplayer game, and this game excells in most areas. I admit, it is not a very straightforward game to newcomers. It never will be, however if you have the patience to put up with some of the many annoyances this games system has then go for it!
It is not realistic, that you can spin your sword around your back and dodge out of the way of a sword. It is still possible to find fun in this game, if and only if you are willing to actually learn it.
That is all-Krsko
