War of the Roses was a refreshing return to fast paced medieval warfare, something I haven't had much fun with since Mount & Blade Warband. The sword play is fantastic, along with archery which is implemented well. Cavalry are a little overpowered at times, but I guess that is befitting of a large horse covered in armor with a knight sitting atop it.
Some may recommend Chivalry : Medieval Warfare as an alternative, but to me that seems as pointless as recommending Call of Duty to Battlefield players or vice versa, people like what they like. Each game has its pro's and con's, and personally I like WotR better due to my time spent in Warband.
The game however is fairly difficult to get into, but once you figure out the basics you can have a lot of fun experimenting with tanky knights or quick footmen, or just snipe away as a ranged character. If you expect to be good straight away however, you are probably going to have a bad time.
All things considered, its a great game.
