After playing both (on trials/free weekends) I lean towards WOTR myself, but probably because I played a lot of mount and blade I don't mind the control system. That and well.. mounted combat!
Given that its $5 this weekend I might just have to buy it.
Of course when chivalry is $5 I'll probably get that too.
I agree though, its a pity there aren't more TOGgers involved in WOTR. I know they are the same genre of game but they both really have different 'feels' and I think one can enjoy both and get something different from each of them.
