GamerNode | War of the Roses Review

GamerNode Senior Editor Mike Murphy writes: "Gamers currently live in a world dominated by the modern military shooter. We have the Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, and Battlefield franchises making tons of money on today’s theaters of war and the soldiers who fight the battles within them. After all these years, some are beginning to think that the genre is growing stale; that studios should create new games to challenge the status quo. This is the task undertaken by Fatshark and Paradox Interactive in War of the Roses, a team-based multiplayer title centered on a far more historical military age: the middle ages. The result of this attempt is a valiant one that, while fun, also exhibits a fair share of clumsiness and borrows from the formula that these AAA franchises have made the norm." (PC, War of the Roses) 3/5
