GamerZines| War of the Roses: Final Verdict

Gamerzines writes:

Some games take advantage of a hole in the market, others build on the success of their competitors, and the rare few are a labour of love. That’s exactly what War of the Roses is, an obscure third-person multiplayer love letter to medieval combat during a fifteenth century dynasty war. A theatre where clunking metallic warriors with big swords face down each other while archers try and snipe them from afar before being crushed by a lancer charge from an opportunistic, yet skilled, rider.

It isn’t hard to see why that premise should be a multiplayer goldmine of close calls, funny stories and acts of heroism, and Fatshark has created an experience which offers exactly that, with support for up to 64 players on five different maps in two different game modes. On the surface those slender playing options don’t excuse a digital-only game hurtling towards a full on RRP, but what you’re really paying for is this game’s originality and attention to detail. (PC, War of the Roses) 80/100
