For fans of Mount & Blade
, April 3, 2010
This review is from: Mount & Blade: Warband - PC (Video Game)
This game is for fans of the first game that wanted a little more in the game. It is basically an improvement of the first Mount & Blade. If you haven't played the first one then you should definetly try this out. This game is amazing when compared to what else is out there. There is so much to this game and it is really immersive. Here's a couple of the cool things about this game...
-You actually fight the battles out instead of just letting your armies go at it like in other games
-You can become many things including a lord, a sword for hire, merchant, etc...and none of the options is ever closed off to your character.
-You not only fight roving bandits, deserters, and other armies but you can actually lay seige to castles and ACTUALLY BE A PART OF THE SEIGE. This means that you build the seige weapons and utilize them during the attack on the castle.
-The combat is more responsive than the first game but you may have to change a couple of the options to make it work like you want it to.
-You set the pace of the game. If you like to play slowly and be more strategic then you can do that by slowing down the combat and spending your time in the world building up your army, then send your army into combat without you. Or you can travel around known areas for raiders and be in constant battle and even declare your sword for another lord right off and go toe to toe with other armies and spend the game taking cities and castles.
If you haven't played the first game then I would give this a five star rating. Otherwise, this is mostly the same great game with some improvements (basically an expansion).
