War of the Roses Review | Blistered Thumbs

BT writes: Paradox Interactive kind of reminds me of your neighbor’s dog. Not in a chewing up the furniture way but more in a way that he’s usually best appreciated when he isn’t digging through your backyard or trash. What do I mean by that? Paradox Interactive seems to have this knack for picking at genres that already have established kings. Not that only one game can occupy a genre, merely that some of the titles they publish come out the other end as “lite” versions of meatier fare. Their more interesting titles distinguish themselves though, and often keep an admirable air of originality to them, such as Crusader Kings II or Magicka. War of the Roses keeps a little of that air, but can’t help but make me feel like they’ve been digging up some azalea bushes somewhere. (PC, War of the Roses) 6/10
