Summary: The War of the Roses was a big old 15th Century dynastic squabble between two Plantagenet houses, York and Lancaster, for the throne of England. It ended in a Lancastrian victory, the reconciliation of the two houses, and the creation of House Tudor.
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.
Summary: For those who need a refresher in early Renaissance England (let’s not scoff – most of us do), the War of The Roses was a time of hereditary wars fought between 1455 and 1485, and involved two parties; the houses of Lancaster and York, both fighting for succession to the throne.
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: 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
