One of the more expansive RPG's, with an excellent melee combat system. The various factions offer a variety of play styles if you are willing to specialise. However, it's often more rewarding to take a hodge-podge of units from 2 or 3 factions. The castle combat is not incredibly deep, or interesting. It is, in fact, one of the weakest parts of the game. It bears little relation to actual siegecraft, and very little in terms of actual strategy. Compared to the open field combat, there is very little to it. The politics in the game is interesting, but really the game only opens up when you strike out on your own. Making alliances to wipe out the annoying faction who keeps attacking you will make you feel like a master strategist, and it is absolutely glorious. In general, the companions are more annoying than useful, but they are all unique and interesting characters with their own backstories and motivations. It is a pity that they level up slowly, and you when you pick up a new one they are invariably low level and a hindrance in battle. Even with its many many flaws, this is still one of the most amazing games ever made. Buy it, and you will not be disappointed.
Mount & Blade was the first PC game i have bought. And Warband was the second game (multiplayer, more realistic combat, more mods) +Mounted combat +Bows, javelins +Blades, spears +Training +Tournaments +Army vs army combats (with mods you can make it like 100 vs 100) +Lots of mods. (for example: lotr, game of thrones, hundred years etc) +More realistic combat +Not only level system but also combat weapon experience system too. +Better multiplayer game modes (for example: castle sieges with real players or open world games like persistent mod) -You can not feel outside like the elder scrolls. (when at outside villages or combats it goes to 3rd person map view) At last: Give it a try. You will LOVE it!
Lost over 1400 h playing this game mods napoleonic wars and sword of damocles there where more bbut napoleonic war sweet dam if you like linefighting and charging into enemy lines with byonets then this is the game for you join a regiment and start playing you wont regret it i didnt
U know, although it is a old game with a poor graphic, it's still a excellent game with a lots of mod which can bring much more fun to you. It's because the game system was excellent and you won't feel bored with it.
Mount & Blade Warband. I found out about the game when I was watching some youtubers and really liked the gameplay of it. I played only games like Anno before i actually got into this 1st person medieval game and it was quite a change. I no longer had to build a city and keep the economy running, instead I had to slice the enemy forces and maintain my army while slowly building up for my empire. I am a bit unhappy about the world map that mb warband presents the player as it seems so cold and unfriendly, but I never play a game of this genre before. The menus bug me alot since it only gives you a few options and seems very limited in the actions you can take. I havent even found a mod that changes these elements but I played the game anyways. In my opinion a lot of potential is lost that way, simply because sometimes the quests are repetitive and you need alot to get in favor of someone of a good position. One of my main criticism is directed at the "base building" or castle building because there is none. I would really like to see my own castle stand against my enemies and filled with my own recruited men who fight for me as their king. Considering the circumstances it was made in, it's a really good game for a low budget turkish company
