Best Xbox One Games #32 – For Honor
Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
Synopsis: Prominently considered a test of wills and skills between opposing factions in single and multiplayer fashion, For Honor supposes who would win in a battle between Vikings, Samurai, and Knights. Each play style brings champions of the fold, complete with customizable equipment and varied skills in combat. Some will want to swing behind a shield, others will want to bleed your dry. Whatever you choose, you must bring an able mind and a sound body to the front lines of war.
Why it’s one of the 50 best Xbox One games: Rare is it that a game comes around that is dynamic in scale. There are plenty of large-scale combat modes like Dominion and Skirmish that focus on taking down enemies in battles over time. On the other side of the coin, there are modes like Duel, Brawl, Elimination, and Blood Bath where combat is boiled down to raw combat on a smaller, more personable scale.
That ability to play the same action game using RPG elements, letting you tinker a fighter that fits your play style, speaks to the power of For Honor as a title. You make of it what you will, whether you want to be a huge, victorious coward that outruns opponents, bash enemy combatants off bridges with your burly size, or play somewhere in-between.
