  2. Great value and modding community
    by Kaiser-e-rum, USA - Mar 18th 2018

    Don't let the graphics turn you off, this game is worth it at any price, the modding community is fantastic and rivaled only by a few others,some people will say to play the game unmodded first and I mostly agree outside of a few minor mods like Diplomacy and battle sizer for larger battles. Making the game even better, you don't have to have a top of the line PC to enjoy it,can't wait for Bannerlord, and remember there is a mob for everyone for this game,Praise King Harlaus and long may he feast!

  3. Let down by controls
    by green_knight, United Kingdom - Feb 21st 2018

    I am writing this review with a torn heart. On the one hand, I really appreciate what this game is trying to do - the graphics, while not the bestests evar are good enough and smooth enough to allow full immersion; and I wanted to love this game.
    I found it unplayable because the gameplay is *too* immersive - you have to mimic your character's moves closely with that imprecise instrument, the mouse - move to left and click, move up and right-click, each stroke has a precise counterstroke. The game also gives you a perfect horseriding simulation - you'll find yourself going round in circles and being ignored by your horse - but my hand-eye coordination, combined with occasional computer lag does not allow me to actually PLAY. The only way I could hit targets when mounted was to halt the horse and stab feebly. Which is a shame, but however nice this game looks, it is not worth the time to learn how to master even basic controls.

  4. One of the best medieval games
    by Claus M.1, Denmark - Dec 21st 2017

    - Detailed economy
    - You can set difficulty all the way from very realistic to you can beat an army of 100 single handedly
    - Interesting combat and sieges

    - Some sidequests are near impossible to solve
    - Graphics are dated
    - RNG

    Mount and Blade 2 Bannerlord will be my game of the year, no doubt. This is great to play while waiting.

  5. Mount and Blade Warband Review
    by Caleb Schwab, Australia - Nov 28th 2017

    With Mount and Blade Bannerlord coming soon, I figured to give Warband a shot beforehand as I hadn't played in years. Bought the game again to see that it is still as glorious as I remember. Graphics haven't aged as well, however this is a game where the amount of content heavily compensates for the visuals. Good buy.

  6. Fun
    by Paul Fischer, USA - Nov 22nd 2017

    The graphics are outdated now, but it was alot of fun to play. There is a good storyline and intuitive gameplay. Harking to the name, it was also one of the first games to effectively incorporate equestrian combat.

  9. A brut gem
    by Yoann L.1, France - Feb 26th 2017

    The graphics may be outdated, but at lesat you can run this great game on basically any toaster! The gameplay is nice: epic battle in the field or in cities and castles, lots of quests even if they could be more divers.
    If you ever get bored with the main game there's multiplayer battles and tons of mods!

  11. Charge into battle
    by Bebeto, Romania - Nov 26th 2016

    Ideal game for the strategy/roleplaying elitist, and the power hungry obsessed.
    The perfect example of a replayable game.

  12. Great game
    by Samanevi, Czech Republic - Oct 22nd 2016

    I spent a lot of time playing this game. After some time, it can get pretty repetitive but overall it's a really good game.

  13. You know what you're getting
    by SigmaPsi, United Kingdom - Aug 7th 2016

    It's M&B - slightly janky, quite dated but fun all the same. A New M&B is due out soon.

  14. The best one of all M&B games!
    by Yeves Hummels, United Kingdom - May 26th 2016

    I am a M&B fan and this is my favourite game of all the series.

    The game itself is really attractive because of its sand-box feature and everything in the game is highly personalised. There are plenty of ways to write your own story, develop your heros and build up the relationship with the characters in the virtue medieval world. If you like history, you can also find a lot of elements related with some major civilisations in the Middle Ages.

    The MODs of this game is another great feature, you can find many interesting MODs of this game with various historic periods.

    Another good thing is, even your computer is not out-of-date, you can probably still enjoy the game. The minimum requirement of your hardware is not high, but if you own a powerful computer you can then enjoy the fantastic graphics.

    If you are considering other games like Chivalry, I think M&B would be much better with its game depth. After all M&B is not only a medeival war simulator and melee combat is just a small part of the game.

    The final suggestion is, actually this game, along with its DLCs, is quite popular and it is on sale very often. It is possible to cost you less than £5/$8 to get this game, just pay attention to the on sale news!

  15. Great Medieval Action/Adventure/RPG style game.
    by Lionel, Switzerland - Mar 16th 2016

    Nice, really nice and inovative game. Good combat mechanics with quite realistic approche to it. The ability to fight on horse is very well achieved. Very captivating gameplay if you like that style of game with a nice character progresion and total freedom of action. However, having no story to follow and limited choice of action that can be undertaken, once you reach high level, well, there isn't much to do left outside becoming the master of the world which tend to be a very repetitive process of agression, fight and siege to gain total control of the map. I would have loved to be able to manage my estates and my subjects more in details and with more control but that is not possible. There are tons of MODs out there that can somewhat aleviate this gap but it is not part of the original game. The online counterpart is, while being fun and engaging, just a series of battles or seige where no character progresion is possible outside the scope of the action itself and therefore you start from scratch at every session. You die quickly until you spend enough time to master the combat moves, if you do. But overall, this game is really worth it for any medieval fan.
