For Honor PC reviewFor Honor PC review

The fighting system does appear to be very good, and I found it a lot of fun. However, between classic Ubisoft crap servers, a pretty duff UI for the menus and, mainly, the pretty shallow diversity in game modes I'm finding it difficult to recommend buying this at full price. Maybe on sale later down the line, with more content updates and patches?Reply

My thoughts exactly. I had fun playing the game during the closed beta, but can't justify buying it at full price. I wonder when they'll implement the ranked game system, maybe I'll consider it then.

Sounds like "top level" would play it wrong then, seeing there are ways to counter blocks, either by guard breaking or (at least with some characters, I don't know them all) hitting the opponent with an unblockable attack. There might be other ways as well, but I'm really not that good at the game and don't know all the moves.

Even unblockable attacks can be parried if you time it right!

Didnt they say there would be no season pass for this game and all updates will be free?
Mackles Avatar

If any season pass is in the same vein as Rainbow Six it mainly takes the form of early access to new content, rather than exclusive paid access - i.e. getting to use a new warrior a week earlier, but it is still available free to everyone after that 7-day period.

I played the game once, not good enough for me to just up and buy it again, least without a hefty discount.

But that's not a retarded way to do things. That's not the EA way.

I think the next BF may well be this, or I certainly hope so. There's a huge culture shock to take advantage of after players get engrossed in WW1.

Those "preconceived notions" could also be termed "cost-effective business analysis on development strategy", presumably from someone with relevant experience.

The more I see of BF1 the more it looks like a WW2 FPS with a WW1 skin. I'll get my fix from Verdun!Reply

Because of the Steam sales I decided to buy Verdun, I already asked and got my refund, it's not a great game.

Star Wars Battlefront exceeds EA's sales expectations, according to industry analystStar Wars Battlefront exceeds EA's sales expectations, according to industry analyst

The main problem of the game is that it just isn't engaging enough to retain players once the initial Star Wars buzz has worn off. Good to scratch that itch for half an hour every other month.

Alright, but when you do jump into it, is there an apparent shortage of players?
