Between the abundance of battle royale games and the glut of more traditional multiplayer entries, there's no shortage of ways to eliminate our friends online. Hood: Outlaws & Legends attempts to cut through the competition, spinning the familiar player-versus-player formula into a single tension-ratcheting, objective-based mode. The simple set-up sees two teams of four competing to complete a heist, which involves stealing a key, scoring the loot, and escaping scot-free. The three-pronged goal is pretty straightforward, but a good deal of depth and nuance -- from unique character classes and their medieval arsenal to engaging progression systems and the presence of AI enemies -- make for some thrilling matches.

The necessity to rely on stealth as much as all-out action also adds a nice strategic layer to the rob-the-rich-give-to-the-poor proceedings. While all the elements are in place for a fun, refreshing multiplayer romp, Hood isn't without its flaws. Playing with a well-oiled team feels fantastic, but trying to coordinate with strangers on the various critical objectives can be a bit chaotic. It doesn't help that the matchmaking system sometimes pairs new recruits with more seasoned outlaws. The game's most glaring issue, though, is its lack of content. While it's promising a future road-map full of new features and content, it currently only has the one mode. Still, what it does, it mostly does well, while also providing a welcome respite from the usual multiplayer monotony.
