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.

Excerpt: Er du kørt sur i, at multiplayer-action altid skal foregå med maskingeværer, granater og kampvogne, så skulle du måske tage et kig på middelalderspillet War of the Roses, der lader dig skrue dig ned i fuld rustning og tampe løs på dine modstandere med meterlange sværd.
Summary: For omkring 800 år siden var verden en helt anden. Krig foregik til hest eller til fods mens man svingede adskillige kilo skarpslebent jern over hovedet, mens man klyngede sig til håbet om at komme fra slagmarken med alle lemmer i behold.
