Anyone ever play Chivalry: Medieval Warfare?

Postposted on Fri Jan 25, 2013 7:17 am

This game is insanely fun.(A little hard,since it's multi player-only).

It's best described as a first-person slasher.

Take your usual first-person shooter,replace the guns with swords,maces,and spears..and set it during medieval times.

Beautiful graphics,and IMO it's very addictive.
(I've played 52 minutes so far last night,and considering I have to go to work this morning starting at 8 AM..I'm tempted to start playing but worried I'll be late for work if I do start playing.)

It's 50% off on Steam this weekend,ending Jan.28,2013.

My friends and i have been playing for a few weeks now. It's super fun. I suggest everyone pick it up if you want a game you can just jump in to and play without a huge commitment or a lot of brain work. I'd be game for playing with some gerbils if anyone wants to play.

I play at least a few matches almost every day. Very fun and I'm excited for some content updates.

Tonight is a WoW night, but I've already got it downloaded for the free weekend, so same goes for adding Steam IDs at that point.

Unfortunately, I can't seem to get the free weekend download to work - the link does nothing in Steam, or gives me a 302 error :(

It's a great game, but it isn't very polished. It feels like an update from the mod it was originally, not really a complete game. Hitboxes are also strange and require a lot of thought to see where they actually are; many times I would fail to block with my shield because their horizontal swing somehow hit my side instead of the shield while I was looking directly at them. It's a slower game, one that requires a lot of forethought and timing. It's quite fun to out wit your opponent with a simple fake out or to punish those without shields with an arrow to the knee.

I agree with all that. The coolest part is that it's super fun even with it's quirks.
