Mount and Blade Warband is a great game. I would recommend skipping over the original Mount and Blade unless there is a specific mod that you want to play that is only available on that version. Similar to Minecraft, Warband has a great longevity because of mods.There are tons of mods out there to play once you get bored of the base game, which make this game a really great value.
This Game is so Great!Kveni | Nov. 11, 2014 | See all Kveni's reviews »
This was one of the games that my friends and I would literally sit down and play for hours, just because of how amazing it was. It was one of the games that allowed you to play as a knight and actually siege a castle, or defend your castle, whatever you wanted to do! You could roam the land in search of enemies, or people to take prisoner. It gave people so much freedom to do whatever they wanted, and combined aspects of an RTS game, with a Third Person camera angle when you are actually down on the ground fighting. This was one of the games that showed that you don't need to have amazing graphics or game goals, because if the game is fun, that's all that matters! of course, you can get the newer Mount and Blade games that look great, but this is a classic!
One of The Best Games Ever MadeAducan | Oct. 23, 2014 | See all Aducan's reviews »
This game, in my true opinion, is the 2nd best game ever made. Really, I mean that. The thousands of hours I have put into the game are a testament to that. The only game that surpasses it is the sequel, Warband, but I tend to treat that as more of an expansion to this masterpiece than a whole separate game.
Why do I like this game so much? Lets list down some points:
The Scale: Battles are huge and you truly feel like one of many. You may be a degree tougher than your men, but you are no Demigod. The battles are, in terms of size, almost like an RTS.
The Combat: Easy to learn, hard to master. The combat in this game is unique, and anyone who has played War of The Roses and, to a lesser extent, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare should feel it become familiar after a while, as you begin to slaughter dozens of those filthy peasants in quick succession and with elegant grace. Then you'll go into the multiplayer, where things really heat up...
-The World Map: The game possesses a world map, inhabited by 5 super powers; The Nords, Rhodoks, Swadia, Khergit Khante and the Vaegir, all of which have their own strengths and weaknesses when it comes to combat, and all with unique geographical areas. The Nords hold the coast, the Khergit inhabit the rugged Tundras, the Swadians open fields so as to make the best use of their cav, the Rhodok use the natural hills and mountains in their kingdoms to make excellent use of their spear/ crossbow build up and to counter enemy cav and the Vaegir inhabit a land of snow and cold.
-The Mods: The modding community breaths fresh life into the game, providing countless new worlds and scenarios to participate, HUGELY extending game time. Star Wars Conquest will be my favorite mod ever for a long, LONG time.
There are bad sides to the game as well, including the slow progress on the World Map at times and the terrible diplomacy mechanics, but nonetheless it's still a great game. I'd recommend buying Warband, as it fixes many issues with the original and has a much more active community.
So what are you waiting for? Buy it, and ride into legend.
Mount and Blade... What is it?adrianching7 | June 18, 2014 | See all adrianching7's reviews »
Mount and Blade is a thrilling free-roaming sandbox game where you can be anything you want like a mercenary, merchant, Lord of a piece of land etc. The best feature that has made me hooked into the game is the fact that we can lead huge parties of men and fight parties like a real army would. The battle stimulation in this game is absolutely the most spectacular and realistic I've seen in any game I've ever played. There are also siege's in this game to give it a more realistic taste to the game. If you are looking for some hard-core FPS games set in the medieval era then this is the game for you!
A great collection of games, simple but great.GeorgeStorm | Jan. 20, 2014 | See all GeorgeStorm's reviews »
Mount & Blade is a corker of a game, despite it's iffy looking UI, basic sounds and graphics, the gameplay more than makes up for it. You control a character, starting at the bottom, wandering about the map, able to do whatever you wish, build an army, become a knight, marry a Royal Lady perhaps? The two game modes are the one mentioned about, where you control your group on a map, able to see towns, other groups and the landscape, when you come into contact with another group, if they're hostile (which they often are) then you'll be taken to the 2nd mode, which is a 3D battle view. You control your character as you hack, slash or shoot your way through the enemy. It has a simple yet complex enough to make challenging and fun combat system, slightly customisable to allow angled strokes and blocks. With a wide variety of weapons, armour and other items allowing you to tackle combat multiple different ways., whether it be a mounted archer, a sword and shield bearing footman or even a lancer! The collection includes both expansions/sequels which add more items, more quests, more everything really whilst still keeping the core of the game the same. Fire and Sword adds in firearms which change the gameplay somewhat, and personally is my least favourite of the 3. It's also very moddable, with hundreds if not thousands of mods available doing all sorts of things, whether it be just changing the map, or a complete overhaul with custom units, quests, items, the whole lot!
