PVKII Beta 2 Review


Intro
Pirates, Vikings and Knights 2 is an Half Life 2 Multiplayer Mod with features melee weapon combat instead of only firing weapons.
The game is about 3 "races": The Pirates, The Vikings and The Knights.
The Pirates are a fast slashing race with a love of firearms and explosions.
The Vikings are more the strong dumb slashing race.
The Knights are slower but have crossbows and big swords.

Gameplay
The gameplay is similar to Half Life 2 and other HL2 mods, but the core difference is that the combat is based around melee weapons and not firing weapons.
There a few ranged weapons, like the throwing axes, the bows and the muskets.
Every "race" has 2 unit types:

  • Pirates
    • Skirmisher - Has an Musket, Sword and a big ton of explosion
    • Captain - Has an big Musket, a big sword and a cool parrot
  • Vikings
    • Berserker - Has an Big axe and a axe and a sword
    • Huscarl - Has an big axe an axe and a shield an throwing axes
  • Knights
    • Heavy Knight - Has an big sword and a sword and a shield
    • Archer - Has an bow, crossbow and a dagger
The maps have different goals, sometimes you need to capture a point and in other maps you need to steal gold chests to win.
You also have an power bar, this bar will go full if you hit an enemy, if the bar is full you can do a special move.
You can also power boost attack by holding the attack button and releasing it when the power boost bar is full to do maximum damage.



Graphics
In beta 2 all maps look a lot better and the new unit just look perfect and fit good in with the old units.

Replay Value
Played PVKII can become a bit boring but with all the maps and the big difference between the "races" the game keeps it fresh and for 0 USD the mod is awesome!

Verdict
PVKII beta 2 is very awesome and it needs to be played even though it's a bit wacky it's lots of fun and it's always fresh.

Score: 9/10
