For Honor Alpha Preview

ForHonor03For the last few days, I’ve been putting time into one of my most-anticipated titles — For Honor, from Ubisoft Montreal.

Although the game isn’t out yet (it’s currently due to release in February 2017) Gamecritics was given some “alpha” codes to get an early hands-on. A number of features were disabled and large portions of the content were not available, but this limited slice gave a very good idea of what the full title will deliver… And it’s kind of awesome.

Far Cry 4 Review

Too Large a Portion

Far Cry 4

HIGH Flying the buzzer low over the foothills, seeing a herd of deer chased by a pack of wolves.

LOW In the middle of a successful stealth approach to a major mission, I clipped through a rock and drowned inside it.

Design By Committee
