Mordhau's deep melee combat system creates moments of gory multiplayer medieval magic.
High skill cap melee combat is equally rewarding and daunting, though the archery and support roles could use some work.
If you can push past the steep learning curve, Mordhau's brand of chaos is addictive and hilarious
Steel meets flesh in this violent but refined take on large-scale medieval combat.
In the end, Mordhau is a goofy yet realistic medieval combat game that caters to a ton of different players. Many will grind games in order to best perfect their skills with their favorite weapon. Then there's me, who literally runs around the battlefield playing a musical instrument that adds absolutely zero gameplay value to the team. That's the beauty of Mordhau -- the individual moments tend to outweigh any of the design flaws or technical glitches that are present.
Even with the struggles over the last week, the launch of Mordhau has clearly been a success for Triternion and players alike. Even as horrible as I am at the combat it is impossible to deny the melee fighting is a welcome reprieve from the usual first-person shooter or Diablo-esque hack-n-slash combat. The dev team seems intent on keeping the community updated on issues as they arise, and they have already announced they will be adding more content to the game.Score: 9.0
Mordhau is a slap in the face and a pleasure at every moment. Much more than a spiritual sequel to Chivalry, it's an exciting game. Deep, easy to understand but hard to master, it's a breath of fresh air for video games.

While there are certain aspects that would love to see improved, I am confident that those who are even mildly interested in it will find plenty to keep them coming back.
Mordhau has to be your first choice if you're looking for a real challenge. With 3 addictive modes and realistic combat, paying for Mordhau is not going to make you regret

Mordhau's incredibly satisfying melee combat and slapstick ultra-violence make for a riotously good time on the medieval battlefield, though a lack of maps for the best mode and lingering technical issues are cracks in the armor of this otherwise thrilling multiplayer slasher.
