About This Content

Chivalry: Deadliest Warrior is a massive expansion pack for the best First-Person Slasher, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare.

MINI REVIEW – CHIVALRY: DEADLIEST WARRIOR (DLC)

Details
Developer: Torn Banner Studios / 345 Games
Genre: Action
Mode: Multi-player
Release year: 2013

The Good
☺6 new classes with new weapons and abilities
☺Much more variety in faster paced combat
☺Once again, very well composed music and funny voice acting

The Bad
☹Very bad team balancing
☹Not enough maps to keep the DLC interesting and replayable
☹DLC shares the same technical issues as main game
☹Lack of gamemodes which require teams to work together

Worth Noting
  • Tough for new players. One of those "easy to play, hard to master" -games.

  • Steam doesn't show my real playtime on this 'game' as it's technically a DLC.

The Verdict
Personal Rating: "Grab it during a sale"
Traditional Rating: 6/10

"Offers a fun and silly experience, but you'll probably get back to the main game before you know it."

This is Chivalry: Silly Edition. In a good way.
I die repeatedly and laugh. I get my ♥♥♥ kicked everywhere, and it's funny.
For some (if not most) That will put you off. For others who already bought it and didn't like it, you'll scream 'unfair, unbalanced and buggy'
Yeah it's buggy, and mass brawls in this game get messy, and some low life ninja will hit you in the back while you're facing 2 angry spartans.
But nothing will bring a smile to your face quite like 12 angry samurai screaming 'dishona to famiweeee' while sprinting into a crowd of vikings

I still remember the first times I played this game and I knew right from the start that this is a high quality game that would keep me coming back for more. The game has 'more' mechanics than CMW (different damage at different parts of the weapon release, more classes, and faster pace) offerring a higher skill ceiling for advanced players. Kicks aren't totally useless like in CMW,comboing with spears, if you accidently panic and parry before you should then you can jump out of danger instead always getting hit by the enemy that sees your panic parry, and many more differences for CMW that add to my gameplay experience.

When Deadliest Warrior came out, I stopped played Medieval Warfare. It reminded me how fun Medieval Warfare was when that first came out. It's a lot of fun, and It's challenging.

There are no in game micro transactions (which Medieval Warfare started to introduce, and any game that does that immediately loses my interest). The developers have not (or at least i haven't noticed) changed the gameplay or unit balances, again something they started to do with Medieval Warfare.

if you have Chivalry, you must buy this too.

Where do I start... I love Chivalry: Deadliest Warrior almost as much as I hate it. I might as well start from the good.

The idea of the game is good and the formula improves upon its predecessor, but this one is targeted more for fun, rather than the competitive experience Medieval Warfare was. The class roster is well rounded and everyone is guaranteed to find a warrior that fits their playstyle. The combat system is essentially the same as in the previous game with some improvements- as in, the blocking now works more reliably, the combat seems faster, less clunky and more exciting, with a far better flow to it. The game also looks and sounds great: the models are detailed, the enviroments are pretty and the sounds are particularly well done- both the combat and the voicework, which, considering it wasn't done by proffessional actors, is nothing short of amazing.

Now the bad. This game is a buggy mess. It's not on the verge of unplayable, but you WILL get killed in combat due to game errors, and it is extremely frustrating when that happens. All sorts of things can happen- swings going through perfectly placed blocks, hits not registering even though the weapon clearly passed through the enemy, getting hit out of range while clearly seeing your opponent miss, animations can desync, making you receive damage without ever seeing the swing that delivered it, etc. Also the maps, while decent looking, have all kinds of objects with invisible hitboxes that you can get stuck on while moving, or your weapon can hit plain air and cancel the swing, costing you a fight. It happens and it happens frequently and it is extremely annoying.

Then there's also the balance issues. The weapon roster in this game is impressive, yes, but it's terribly balanced. There are some weapons that just triumph over others and in certain cases there's just no reason to pick an inferior weapon. The classes that seem to have a somewhat balanced roster of weapons are the Samurai, Viking and Pirate. The rest, however, have a superior weapon in their loadouts that generally makes the rest obsolete and rarely seen in high level gameplay. Which is a shame. Also, some weapon mechanics are unbalanced to the point of seeming broken- the Ninjato stab and the Spartan shield bash particularly come into mind. The former is riddiculously fast compared to any other attack in the game, which means you either guess right or you die, because there is simply no time to react accuarately, while the latter seems to have no reliable way to block it, again, relying mostly on luck. Both seem cheap, easy weapons to wreck an opponent with and stand out in constrast to the other weapons.

And the final problem with this game is that there is almost no developer support. While its predecessor, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare gets frequent upgrades and balance patches, Deadliest Warrior, with all its issues I've mentioned here, has been that way from the start. It has been over a year now and none of them have been addressed. There hasn't been any attempt to balance classes, fix the multitudes of bugs, or even add something new, save for a few cosmetic items. The votekick system, the autobalance and the chat post-match have never worked propperly and still don't.

Therefore, my final verdict is this. I can't in good conscience recommend this game to everyone. The only reason I play it myself is because I am a die-hard melee combat fan and both Chivalry games are currently the best the multiplayer game market has to offer in that category. But they are far from GOOD games. They can STILL be extremely fun to play- otherwise I wouldn't have dedicated almost 600 hours split between both games and counting. But at other times it can be an extremely frustrating experience and a constant disappointment in the regard of what it COULD be, but isn't, mainly due to apathy from the developer side. If you are, however, seeking a multiplayer melee combat game, then this is the best bet for now. If not, then there are far more well made and supported competitive multiplayer games out there and you should skip this one.

Don't buy this, just get the base game. While this DLC may look intresting, it really isn't. The game modes are really crappy. There's no objectives mode like in the first game. Only deathmatch, team deathmatch and last team standing, and they all feel the same and really dull. It's a DLC but it feels completely different than the base game, which doesn't make it good. It feels like some cheap chinese knock-off of the original version made solely to get some cash, which it probably was
They've somehow managed to make the fighting system worse and it's not even slightly fun now. There is absolutely no balance in the classes, they didn't put any thought in it at all. Same with the maps. You can tell there was really no effort put in designing them.
There's just nothing enjoyable about this, and I don't see any reason to play it.

"B-but it has pirates and ninjas and hillibilies and dinosaurs!"
Well, just because I put a pirate hat on my turd and give it a sword doesn't change the fact that it's a turd, does it?

An utterly broken mess of a game that takes everything that was good about the base game and turns it on its head, introducing new bugs and glitches, downgrading the server quality and having been more or less abandoned by the devs (long standing known exploits which the devs have failed to fix means you can expect to see people glitch outside the map on Fjord almost every match, for instance).

The expansion's combat mechanics are fist-clenchingly, rage-inducingly broken and follow little logic from the base game. Terrible hit detection and an even worse spawning system result in almost every death being a cheap one, with little you can do to improve next time. The sense of learning is largely overshadowed by cheap and nonsensical game design.

There are 2 or 3 classes that overpower the rest, and 2 or 3 loadouts that are abhorrently, brokenly OP.

This was a cash-in with the Deadliest Warrior TV show. That should tell you something. Torn Banner made a few skins on their already existing game for little effort and cashed in a nice check from the Spike Network.

In my short time with the expansion I also witnessed 3 hackers (I assume there are many more, if it was that easy to find these in the 3 days I played).

It will be fun for the first few hours while you unlock stuff. After that it's all downhill FAST. I hope I don't get tempted to touch this again and I hope you don't either.

I'm not usually this critical, having been able to find value in even Chivalry: Medieval Warfare with all its glitches and other problems. But oh boy, if you thought Medieval Warfare had problems, wait 'til you try this one! (Just don't).

I never liked the medieval theme but i wanted a game based around hacking ♥♥♥♥ up. There are not as many maps in this DLC compared to the Base Game and there are no objectives (based around FFA and TDM) this game has a lot more classes which offers a lot more variety, and this game is more fun.

Buy Chivalry. Ignore DLC.

It's just bad. Chaotic. Spammy. Random. No strategy what so ever. It's pure luck and randomness and some factions are MUCH more powerful than others. Basically if you aren't whatever faction is currently buffed into god mode, you lose.

This game is addictive, pretty bloody, and overall a very enjoyable product.

You DO need Medieval Warfare for this, which sucks. They couldn't make a standalone or something?

Anyway, you can choose between different classes, and as far as I am concerned, customization and weapons select is improved from MW, as you can actually see the weapons and cosmetics BEFORE playing a game.

The combat is a mixed bag for me, though. The original, in my opinion, had a problem with actually hitting an oponent, especcially at range. I almost never played Archer for this. Although the introduction of certain classes (Pirate, for example) has definitely improved the ranged combat, the melee combat seems to have suffered in return. I ALWAYS had a problem with actually hitting an oponent, and I'm starting to wonder whether or not the hit detection in the game is bad, or maybe the lag. My ping seems to spiral out of control at the worst of times for the weirdest of reasons, even though I SHOULD be able to handle the game.

Despite this, I think this game is worth a look, if you can get past some gameplay faults and maybe the ridiculous ping increases.

This DLC had a potential to be amazing, but instead it failed miserably. Gameplay is unbalanced, everyone are using cheap tactics and OP weapons. Having multiple teams and classes on one map was a stupid idea. Servers are laggy and there is no custom battles to set up for playing with friends or bots. I really see no point in playing it, all you will get is frustration. The only positive thing I can think of is an option to mute chat, whoever made it possible deserves a raise. Fanboys can down vote me as much as you want. It is my review and your opinion is irrelevant. Save your money and perhaps check out the standard game which is only half good, but don't get me started on that. I'm out.

EDIT: Before you say "omg u have 0 hours hurr durr" you should know that Steam keeps hours track only of the standard game, and not the DLC itself.

The combat is spammy and unreliable compared to the original, the modes are a mess, and the mixture of teams results in frequent gangbangs. 4/10

This DLC though might look fun it is NOT. Sure it has fixed few bugs of it's original, but it has plenty of thers. The mode offers basically 6 maps and that is it. You wont even be able to play the maps of the original (why? because Torn banner doesn't care about the game). Team balance DOES NOT EXIST. When the match starts unlimited number of people can go to one team and well you might be the only person in the opposite team (and I see this happen A LOT). The next "best" thing about this game (and this DLC) is that blocking sometimes work sometimes doesn't (mostly 50/50), the classes are very unbalanced and oh lets not forget those game exploiters. Around half of the players of this game are exploiters, the other half is trying to learn exploiting so that they could do it in the future and that way get some kills.

Verdict: 5/10

I basically play this game just because I bought it and don't want my money to be completely wasted.
