There are only a few For Honor Reviews online with most of the major websites waiting longer to give their final thoughts on the latest release.
The reason to the shortage of reviews is the game being unavailable to review ahead of its release date which was a move made by Ubisoft due to the massive importance of online gameplay. Attack of the Fan Boy provided the first look at For Honor following the closed and open betas earlier this year.
“The story is kind of a confusing mess, presenting you with a world that saw some sort of calamity a thousand years ago. This caused the globe to become embroiled in conflict for that thousand years, with peace only becoming a reality in the last few years. The three groups in these conflicts are the ones you choose from in multiplayer: knights, vikings, and samurai. Why they’re in the same region? Who knows. What we do know is that a new warlord named Apollyon is trying to bring back the wars that just now ended. You play as alternating characters, with a specific chapter for each faction. You’ll work for and against Apollyon, trying to figure out what is happening in this world, and maybe how to avoid plunging the globe back into endless combat.”
AOTFB gave For Honor a 4.5/5 review, also saying “For Honor is heavily focused on the multiplayer components, but it has a surprisingly strong single player campaign.”
Are you upset about the lack of reviews about the game? Do they influence your decisions to by a game?
