For Honor has a premise that speaks to me and engages me instantly. Vikings vs. Knights vs. Samurai in an epic showdown with intense, violent hand-to-hand combat? Where do I sign up? What the game does so well though is not just its clever (if not a little bit silly) concept, but instead the incredibly intricate combat system that is the glue holding the experience together. The campaign only really serves as an appetizer for the main course that is multiplayer, which has more than enough meat to bring value to this tasty, brutal and addictive experience - when it works, that is. But more on that later.
