I've been playing this game since when it was still a mod (When there were only three factions instead of 5), and I have to say, unless you are planning on getting into the regiments in the community, you shouldn't get it. Public play isn't that fun in my opinion, and the game it self will get very bland after awhile if you don't join a regiment/clan. I've been in the same clan for almost four years now and I haven't regretted it.

So how do clans/regiments work in this game? Well obviously there are events. But not events just based on the skills on the players, but on their commander as well. Its a lot more complex than most games involving events. The events in these games are called linebattles, for obvious reasons being that most regiments fight in lines and use line tactics. If you have ever played Empire or Napoleon:Total War, think of it that, just scaled down and with you as one of the officers/rankers.

Most events have their own rules for each class, but this is a rundown on each class in a event AKA linebattles.

-Line infantry/Foot Guards
Line infantry and Foot Guards have to be in lines to fire, being shoulder to shoulder and either firing together (called a volley) or at will. Most regiments move out in columns 1 or 2 ranks depending on the linebattle's rules. They are the best infantry units in the game at melee stat wise (Foot Guards being the best), however you will find that riflemen or light infantry might still be able to beat someone in melee depending on their skill. They can also form some type of anti cav formation. For example, actual Napoleonic War tactics were if enemy cavalry were close by they would form a square, which usually was two ranks deep with the officers, musicians, and flag bearers in the middle of the square.

For its price, this DLC gives you what amounts to little more than a multiplayer-only mod in no way superior to other mods done by amateurs and posted for free on TaleWorlds' modification forums. The only unique aspect here is that it's been officially commissioned by the gamemakers, given a few lines of spoken dialogue, and charged money for it.

Mount & Blade is incredibly diverse in its modding capabilities, and over the years since its first release, has seen people mod the game to play as realistic Medieval or ancient combat, to Feudal Japanese settings, even to modern era gunpowder mods set in the American Old West or even World War II.

This mod in particular does what I've long thought to be a fun challenge for gamemakers such as those behind the Call of Duty franchise to explore; the days when firing off a single shot was a big deal and often resorting to the bayonet was more likely to save you than stopping to reload.

History Channel games tried this approach with their Civil War games, and avoided the need for formations or fellow soldiers by having it be "special ops" type missions involving one man as a spy.

But this mod shows that such a thing can be accomplished and can be fun. It works out wonderfully here, it could work out amazingly well as a Call of Duty game.

The biggest problem however is that the limitations of the historical technology would mean that more stuff would need to be added. If gunplay is to be hindered by realistic reload times and poor firing accuracy, additional gameplay features need to be given; expanded melee combat, perhaps, specialized tasks to be accomplished, many different game modes and wider variety of weapon choices.

First I would like to point out that I have Mount & Blade Warband. Second, I understand what a DLC is and how to activate a Serial Key on Steam. Third, I purchased this directly from Amazon and not another seller. All that being said, this product does not work. The Serial Key provided is not valid.

I guess it depends on what you like, but this is by far one of my favorite games of all time. Graphics don't even matter. Fire&Sword was trash, and Warband 2 isn't out quite yet (this review was posted 1/2/2012). If you want to get into regiments aka clans, you will want a steam account. You can also buy this game from Steam as well.

Also, I take into consideration that playing a laggy game in Napoleonic Wars it really still fun, because you fire muskets and shoot cannons. Melee may be very difficult if you're ping is over 100.

Tons of players play this game, I have recently been in a game with 200 players, a full server. When you see that many, I wouldn't even care if I had 150 ping, grab the artillery and start firing! XD

They are Strategy games, also RPG, also First Person Medieval/Napoleonic Weapon wielder! And you can build an army to be with you!

For JRPG fans, I would say that this is an equivalent of a Westernized interpretation of Konami's SUIKODEN franchise; sans the focus in Plot/story.

I've always wondered when they were going to make a full game like this , I remember playing an old Half Life mod with bayonets and ridiculously slow reloading times, but this knocks it out of the park. Its fun and takes awhile to get used to. Overall great game.
