Hands down, Best Game Ever for me so far!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mount & Blade: Warband Demo [Download] (Software Download)
So I got a bang up ToshLaptop, 6GB/1GB dedicated Sys/Video(NVid) RAM, Awesome System! Windows 7 was great at first, then I increased game graphics and after instability I came back down to usable optimal greatness! Game goes on so long and is so good that playing for so long, sometimes I start losing it and have to stop. I have played non-stop for 48 hours at a time now about 5 times, I quit that though. I have almost finished taking over entire country for 1st time, only a few Nords left to tackle. Gotta keep your vassels (Lords) happy or they will defect on you, no more than -95 rating is recommended or account them corrupt and lose them, all the more for the rest, but you do need them to help you for group effort to overcome the other factions. I have played several video games and this is hands down the best, esp. if I have had sleep and in good mood. I first did tasks to help the big cities, found a cause to fight for a leige that was banished. She disgusted me after giving my 1st Castle Storming to another so I then became a Leader myself and took over her Swadia. I am a guy but play as a woman because I thought she would look great, not the case really and now it is harder but challenging as a woman so next game will be as a man and I can marry .... look out ladies! *S* I have yet to find out if I can create a peaceful nation yet? I hope so, I like to fight but would like peace for the villagers, they are always getting the rough end of things and I feel sorry for them, they help me lots because I have always been kind to them. The big cities too, they each allowed me to buy a business because I helped them and engineered their trust and got really rich for that. You will need money!!! With a business in each town you get rich really fast and can lose out fast during wars as they fight you AND take your money. That about covers it, have a blast. Can't go wrong, if free download does not run, you don't send in $25 so you can play on from the free 7 levels they allow you. If you got/get a system that can run it, for $25 you can be entertained until you grow tired of the game and I see that happening to me somewhere around 2020 at my being 70 years of age, hahahah.
