Absolver blends For Honor-style perspective with unique mechanics inspired by the martial arts.
It’s rare to find a three-dimensional fighting game where weapons aren’t a core part of the experience. This has always bummed me out because unarmed martial arts combat is every bit as interesting and fun to watch as swordplay. Absolver, a new fighting game experience on Xbox One, scratches that itch. And while the game’s lackluster campaign experience and the small shared multiplayer world are disappointing, Absolver nevertheless stands out as one of the most unique and fun fighting games of this generation.
