War of the Roses review

You can play War of the Roses in a team death match or in the conquest mode up to 64 players. Since it is a multiplayer game, you won’t be able to find a single player campaign in it. When you play the game, you will notice some similar concepts to other medieval games. However, you will notice some unique features as well because it is built from the ground up on Fatshark’s own propriety engine.  The game has a learning curve and it is extremely accurate. You won’t find any difficulties in getting used to the accuracy of your target because of the strategically developed skills used in the game.

Seven maps are available in War of the Roses for the convenience of players. However, Fatshark and Paradox are in the process of bringing new updates to the game on a monthly basis. It will be good news for the players who need more customizations on the game. Four base profiles are available in War of the Roses and they are designed to be played in all levels. All the custom profiles will not be perfect for all the situations in the game. Therefore the players can always fall back to the base profile during their needs.

Eh. I think this game is a good deal better than this review makes it out to be. It certainly not perfect nor is it amazing, but I do love the combat and how easy it is to just jump into a game and go.

Single player might have bulked it out nicely and made it worth the cost. Seems a pretty glaring omission given how much of it is based on M&B already.

I may pick this up on sale one day, it seems interesting. But I’m not a huge fan of low-fantasy.
