Mount & Blade starts you a sandbox world that allows you to build up the forces you want, hire different followers to fight for you, trade, and take jobs for different factions, possibly becoming a higher ranking member of society. Battles can be small skirmishes with just you against a few enemies or involve 100s of soldiers. You can use a variety of weapons, both melee and ranged, including mounted combat where you can make use of bows or lances. Melee combat involves you swinging your weapon in different directions or thrusting while blocks are done by moving your weapon to the correct side of you to deflect blows or making use of shields. The game can get fairly repetitive as mostly you are just going to be fighting battles and raising your skills, there's not much in the way of tactics, well made maps, or that many options when it comes to interacting with the world. Fun game that is well worth the price.
Honestly, I played this Mount and Blade game for HOURS on end and I loved EVERY MINUTE OF IT! The game is huge and beautiful (well, at least it was for it's time) and offers the player tons of awesome content to explore and discover. You can make your own factions, hire a crew, and fight enemy factions that think they are better than you are! There are also awesome castle siege fights, that are long and intense, keeping you in the action every step of the way. The combat is also something worth noting, as it can take a while to master the, well, more diverse style of combat that this game has to offer. TOTALLY worth buying is you like Medieval games!
I see Mount & Blade as the WRPG equivalent of Minecraft. You can go anywhere and do whatever you want. You can barter, you can also craft gear, hire escoprtment, become king, become a soldier, anything that NPC's can do, you can too. The controls aren't the best, but they're good enough and the combat is pretty engaging. If you like doing whatever, you'll love it.
This is a great game especially if the non-fantasy medieval era appeals to you. It has RPG elements and the combat and gameplay is top quality even for an older game. I would highly recommend this game to anyone who plays games from the Total War franchise and has ever thought I would love to take command of one those soldiers and fight along side them. It can be played in first or third person and the fighting is satisfying. There are some problems which come with the age of this game. Battles are limited to (I think) 100 people on each side but once most are dead reinforcements come in so it's not that much of a problem. So if you want 500 vs 500 at the same time it isn't possible. Graphics are good considering the age of the game. Great steam community and Mods make this a must have for me.
Mount and Blade is a medieval role playing game; after you have created your character, you find yourself thrust into the harsh world of Calradia. Although there is no fixed storyline to follow, your first task is survival. The game is open and the player is free to do as he wishes, here is the freedom to which I alluded at the beginning. Even if the battle is prevalent, is for the most part optional. The player can make money looting or exchanging goods between towns and gain experience. The game offers a basic dynamic economy based on supply and demand. The army of the player can be formed by taking the various NPCs (heroes or companions) that are found in the inns of the city, and the mercenary soldiers. The player can increase the maximum size of the army by investing points in certain skills to level up, or gaining fame by winning battles. The player decides the development of the skills of fellow PNG using them to supplement its own. The world of Mount & Blade is a living world, the armies of the NPC belonging to five factions constantly move on the map to do battle. Some of the quests that we are entrusted make events happen that change the geopolitical structure of the continent of Calradia. The flaws of the game are essentially two: the graphics are stuck to 2005; Also the game is a lot 'repetitive.
