Chivalrous combat can cut deep

IF you're fond of King Arthur and similar tales of knightly heroics, you've at some point probably imagined yourself donning plate and taking up the sword.

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is the perfect game for removing all romance from that notion.

Become a knight, man-at-arms, archer or pikeman before choosing a team and charging into battle with swords or axes waving.

This is a combat game that doesn't shy away from the reality of combat. It's fast, confusing, and frequently ends when your mate accidentally runs you through with his pike.

I don't blame him though. Unlike previous games that treated swords as though they were guns and calculated only if they hit your target, Chivalry treats swords as though they're sharp blades of steel that cut through things when they're swung. More than once I was saved from a two-on-one attack by one idiot accidentally executing his fellow knight with a poorly timed swing.

I admit, there's a lot of fun in this game. It's well worth playing if you're not squeamish and it does feel a more authentic "medieval" experience than almost any game that's come before.
