Medieval Mayhem Strikes True

  • Excerpt: I think most gamers are like me in that we like all things medieval. Even the good old Dungeon and Dragons we grew up playing was basically a medieval world, although one filled with monsters and dragons, and quite a few fair maidens who needed saving.

  • Conclusion: But at the end of the day, you get out of this game what you put in – Skill Is not an unlock, is the motto the guys are going with at the moment. In a way, this game could turn out to be more skill-orientated than Counter-Strike.

  • Conclusion: LOOK AT MY HORSE, MY HORSE IS AMAZINGSo Much Customization - There's so much customization for your 4 potential custom characters in this game that it's almost a flaw. Not only do you choose 5 perk trees that branch out into insane details, but your weapons are customizable all the way to the base.

  • Conclusion: A slight but fun third-person medieval melee game. It’s definitely different, but needs more bulking out.

Hooked Gamers
7 October 2012
  • Conclusion: The graphics engine of War of the Roses gets choppy on the highest settings, even on powerful machines that do not flinch when running Battlefield 3 on the highest settings in Full HD. The game also suffers from some technical issues and the game crashed three times during my time with it.

  • Summary: After you lose too much blood and collapse to the ground, there's nothing as unsettling as watching helplessly while your foe towers over you and proceeds to stab a broadsword through your ribs to finish the job. Or hoists his shield over his head before bringing it down on your skull.
  • Pros: Combat is chaotic and fun, Tons of weapon customization options, Beautiful map designs
  • Cons: With only two modes, battles can grow repetitive
