Summary: I put 200 hours into this game and then left it to play other games; but when those games get boring, I find myself always going back to Chivalry. Why? There is no other game where you can put your melee slashing skills to the test against other player controlled characters. Sure there is War of the Rose, but even then the mechanics are much different and less satisfying and less tactics involved.
Summary: If you can snag this game during a Steam sale like I did, you can get it for as cheap as $6. Hours and hours of fun. There aren't really any other games like it. First person slasher, great real-time combat. There is so much potential for new player created maps etc. I compare it to Day of Defeat, but with swords and arrows instead of WW2 guns. Good amount of gore and bodies, great sound and atmosphere. Buy it.
Summary: This game for the price is awesome, have spent countless hours playing and slashing my way to victory. There is a learning curve but don't get frustrated, stick with it and you will over time become better.
Summary: I've owned this for about a year, and just bought 2 more copies for friends. Love the game. Things to note: It's an entirely PvP game. Not much else to it. Don't expect a Mount and Blade style of gameplay. The game is very sensitive to ping/latency issues. I'm not sure if this is the nature of the gameplay or issues with their net code. There is a hefty learning curve.
Summary: I spend way more hours than I care to admit playing this game. The melee combat system is very intuitive and everything's well balanced. For anyone looking for anything a bit different then "Brown and Grey Desert Shooter 349" this is exactly what you're looking for! The community is still very active so it's easy to find servers with good ping.
