A free-to-play spin on the classic Robin Hood tale, Sherwood merges it with what any love about modern PvP games.
Building on the aesthetics of Middle Ages Europe, Sherwood is rendered in stylized polygons, with a wide range of customization for your player character.
Sherwood has abilities unique to Co-op, and maps in environments ranging from seaside pirate ships to nighttime forests.
I Love the way they have the tutorial text integrated into the game’s background scenery. It both blends really well while still catching the eye of the player.
Everything is very visible, but not in a way that’s jarring or takes out of the gameplay. The 3-d word effects for headshots or explosives add a fun, cartoony element. Leaderboards also appear as physical objects in the game, which make the standing feel more solid.
Overall, it’s a fun simple game, that lovers of Fortnite and Apex will enjoy, especially with friends that might be new for this genre.
