    Euro Truck Simulator 2… I’m not even joking when I say I want to try that out. If it drops below £20 I’m gonna buy it.

    Can’t think of anything more tedious. The popularity baffles me.

    The popularity baffles you? Not very bright are you….

    @1 It’s fun when you’re able to get in. I struggled half of my play time to find a workable server, and when I did, it was buggy as hell. But I’m a sucker for anything related to swordplay, and boy, this is good!

    @1 and 5, I played the tutorial and was impressed but whenever I tried to filter the servers it would just go blank and restarting the game didn’t seem to do much.

    I had other things to do so didn’t try much but I’m guessing you think this is worth playing? It strikes me as a first person War of the Roses which to me, sounds awesome. I do own Chivalry, just not got around to playing it properly yet.

    @6 Give it a try. It is pretty much a War of the Roses FPS, but a bit more on the arcade side of things than WotR. The swordplay is bloody satisfying aswell. And the tutorial is probably one of the best I’ve tried so far :P.

    Beware that it’s really buggy, though. Looks more like an Alpha build to me.

    When I tried to play Chivalry the lag made it pretty much impossible. When you’re relying on split second timing, you can’t have people bouncing all over the place.

    It was a lot worse than I ever saw in War of the Roses.

    The gameplay itself felt a lot like Mount and Blade, which is neat. But they do need to make it run smoother than that.

    @2 Demo here:

    I tried it out myself, but I thought it felt a bit like a cheapo unity game.

    @7, Cheers, I will definitely try again this week when I get a chance.

    @8, Nice one. The breakdown on the store page makes it sound pretty good and the fact it didn’t review badly made me tempted. I will definitely give the demo a go.

    WotR is very M&B, based on the tutorial only I thought Chivalry combat was very Oblivion/Skyrim.

    @8 Yeah, it’s lag is bad, but War of the Roses was even worse to me. But when you know everyone else has it, you can kinda rest assured that you’re not the only one who’s drawn back by it :D.

    @10, I thought WotR played fine, lag-wise anyway. I never really had any problems and if I did, it wasn’t hard to find a better server.
