One of the BEST Games out there by FAR....Riddix123 | Nov. 28, 2013 | See all Riddix123's reviews »
The Mount and Blade series has been one of the favorites for a long long time. I remember playing the first one about 7-8 years ago and I was hooked. The idea of a First Person Hank n' Slash was just heaven for me.
Mount and Blade doesn't really need to exist as Warband expands on everything. More factions, more weapons and much more variety in the game world.
With Fire and Sword adds guns into the mixture, I for one find the guns way to overpowering and I usually find one lucky shot by the enemy takes me out in one and that really annoys me. But one features that I love is the multiple endings in the game. You can take on "Special Missions" from faction leaders and find yourself deceiving there enemies . It is so immersive.
I have clocked a total of 96 Hours in both Warband and With Fire and Sword. I haven't had much experience with he online Multiplayer but from what I have played the swordplay and gun play machines are still pretty solid and the teams are evenly matched the majority of the time.
Overall this is a Must Buy. Even if you just by one on its own just to see if you like it. Its still worth it.
Also Taleworlds are Working on Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord. I cannot freaking wait.
Good series on the right trackStuman31 | Nov. 25, 2013 | See all Stuman31's reviews »
I have played all three of the Mount & Blade games, and they were all good, and they are all similar, so you could get away with just owning one, but if you were to ask me which one.... Im not sure which i would recommend. The original Mount & Blade was where i was able to log my most hours, and personally i find combat a lot easier and more enjoyable in this one. However the downfall of this game is that it doesnt really ever end. With the other two i find the combat becomes a little more awkward, but these two games are more expanded than the original (you can have companions and there are achievements etc). Warband and Fire & Sword are pretty much the same too, it just depends on which era you are more interested in playing. Ultimately i think these games are all building blocks for a great epic game, that they havent cracked just yet. Well worth a look in
Wonderful Medieval RPGcybrxkhan | Nov. 14, 2013 | See all cybrxkhan's reviews »
The Mount and Blade Series is a rare gem among RPGs. Despite its outdated graphics, I’ve found it one of the most engrossing simulators for medieval warfare and politics. Unlike many RPGs, you aren’t a “chosen one” or a superhero of sorts - you are just one of many people struggling to gain power and glory. There is no real main quest, which gives you a lot of freedom to achieve your goals - if you survive, that is. For some this sandbox gameplay - which bears some resemblance to the Elder Scrolls series, in a way - may be too overwhelming and confusing, and I would not recommend the game for those who don’t like sandbox games. To me, however, this lack of structure gives the game a much more immersive feel, particularly in the beginning, when you have to find ways to survive against bandits and ruthless nobles. Unfortunately, as wonderful as the game’s concept and ideas are, it can get somewhat tedious once you get the hang of it - this is where mods really help, and the dedicated modding community has developed many mods for all sorts of players and tastes.
Best game out therecup99 | Nov. 9, 2013 | See all cup99's reviews »
This game is by far the best game i have ever played. It is realistic the combat system is great, and it has a good online community. This is my favorite game for the PC, and my favorite game overall. The armor, weapons, and horses, are all changeable and all look unique with their very own stats. I recommend this to everybody because it is a fantastic fighting game.
teaches you what the heck a couched lance isgwynplaine | Nov. 4, 2013 | See all gwynplaine's reviews »
That's when you hold the lance tight against you and use it to ram the other guy, just like in jousting tournaments. The game is a long adventure in single player that eventually and hopefully "snowballs" when you upgrade your units and have an all star team of NPCs. There are twists and turns in the campaign, but building up your character to own on the battlefield and sieges is what defines the game.
Multiplayer is a different affair - where you're not the star of the show but just another foot soldier. It's definitely more challenging and may be more fun for deathmatch and multiplayer fans.
The game comes with plenty of mod support and is an enormous amount of value for what you pay. There's something for everyone in this game.
