War of the Roses Review | Saving Content

Excerpt: "Paradox Interactive is no stranger to historical accuracy and allowing the player to change history in their favor. Ripping pages from the archived headlines of the 30-year war between the Lancasters and the Yorks that took place between 1455 and 1485 in England. About every 20 minutes, you are reliving those stories in War of the Roses thanks to developer, Fatshark.

It is entirely possible you’ll be “Instakilled” when playing War of the Roses. It doesn’t happen very often, but there are just some wounds you can’t recover from. But for the ones you can, you can be bandaged. You can bandage yourself, which takes an awful a lot of time (even with perks to speed this up). Or, your comrades can bandage you at a quicker pace. Even when you’re down, you’re not always out. If you are killed, you can be revived by a team-mate, should he not be skewered by a lancer on a horse while doing so." (PC, War of the Roses) 4/5
