Personal review
Un juego de multijugador melee medieval, o MMM, en la Inglaterra prerenacentista.

Puedes manejar a 4 clases por defecto, e infinitas personalizadas si pagas por la version premium.

Como recomendación jugaría en F2P y sólo pagaría por la versión de pago si el juego me gustase mucho y decidiera que quiero tener a un ballestero/caballero/trabuquero o mejor equipamiento, ya que el tiempo que conlleva desbloquear las perks y armamento para crear tus propias clases es, a mi parecer, excesivo.

Si he de reseñar que es un juego que premia enormemente la habilidad y el planear tus acciones (ir 1 contra 3 no es muy sensato, hacerlo en un pasadizo estrecho teniendo el arma de mayor alcance puede serlo)

De lo mejorcito de las guerra en tiempos más nobles (como demuestra el acuchillar a un enemigo abatido)

Official description
War of the Roses is a team based third person action game set in 15th century England. Two rival branches of the Royal House of Plantagenet - the house of Lancaster (the reds) and the house of York (the whites) – fight over the throne, and the player is thrown into the fray.

The years of 1455-1485 in England are an extraordinary setting filled with conflict, treachery and bloodshed. In the wake of the "death of chivalry" at Agincourt in 1415 and the introduction of gunpowder, warfare changed - the gloves came off, so to speak. The old and the new clashed on the battlefield while personal vendettas motivated the desire for war.

War of The Roses sees players go toe-to-toe with their opponents using authentic and visceral weapons of the time period including broad swords, long bows and battle-axes.

Key Features:
* Customize Your Warrior - Choose your fighting style and select from over 30 play-style changing perks that let you create truly unique characters with special abilities like eagle eye or shield bash.
* Choose Your Gear – Make your selection from over 30 authentic weapons across 10 weapon categories with your choice of blade type and metal type. More than a dozen customizable helmets and various armor types to choose from. Even create your own coat of arms with near limitless combinations as you choose your division, ordinary, charge, and crest.
* Groundbreaking Mounted Gameplay - Melee combat will never be the same, mount up and experience new tactical and visceral thrills
* Train to be the Ultimate Warrior - Experience a deep leveling system as you rise through the ranks, gaining new titles, weapons, gear, and much
* Mass Devastation - Up to 64 player competition in both Team Death Match and Conquest modes. Battle online through 7 historically inspired war zones as you experience the conflict between Lancaster & York first hand.
