  • This is one of those titles where I’d imagine there’ll be little middle ground, you’ll either find it tedious and aggravating or full of ripe challenges to discover technique and nuance as you try to wipe up the floor with your opponents in melee combat. Feeling similar but distinct from a title like For Honor this game is all about smart swordplay and developing a mastery of how to block, parry, and slice up your opponents. Even more interesting is the fact that it is meant to be a multiplayer arena game featuring more than just one-on-one matches, and with a variety of layouts across its 10+ areas there’s plenty to think through in terms of strategy and approach. Aside from the steep learning curve to get to the point where you’ll feel confident you can do more damage than you’ll take the other piece of the puzzle in this title’s success will be the availability and sustained interest of its community. At launch there are often people to play with but depending on the time of day and your luck it can be hit or miss. Unfortunately the connection reliability and quality can be the same, hopefully these kinks can get resolved quickly in order to keep people interested before new titles begin eating into the player base. The best news is that if the game interests you be sure to go pick up the demo on the eShop to try it out for yourself before you need to buy it.
