Mount and Blade: Warband is a standalone expansion to Mount and Blade. It adds several new features, such as a multiplayer mode and some changes to the singleplayer mode. As such, I think it would be a good idea for you to wait until the price drops if you bought the first Mount and Blade, and you aren't interested in Warband's multiplayer. If you didn't get the first M&B, I recommend that you buy Warband.
Graphics: Warband's graphics are like M&B's graphics. However, there are added options (such as antialiasing) that improves Warband's appearance. Character animations have been redone. I like the new animations, as they seem smoother. Attacks while on cavalry no longer go right through your horse's head. However, the attack animations don't look as forceful as the animations in the first M&B.
Certain old meshes, like the horrible looking bandit vest, are still present in the game.
General Additions/Changes: The gameplay has been improved with additional features to spice things up. For example, players can now kick enemies, making their foes open to an attack. Throwing weapons can be switched to melee weapons with the press of a button. Enemies are more difficult to hit because the hitboxes were changed to be more accurate. Lancing now has the option of being like it was in the first M&B, or it can be made more difficult to use. The new faction, the Sarrinid Sultanate, have a very unique and interesting feel to them. There is a much larger variety of banners to choose as well.
Singleplayer: The singleplayer mode has been improved quite a bit.Read more ›
Warband delivers a much needed update. Not only has Taleworlds completely redrawn the map of Calradia from scratch, but they've added a ton of features. The game will play a lot like the original M&B, but with a lot of added features. The biggest feature is the idea of marriage. Players can establish political connections by taking a wife or husband. This adds a new element to the game, and actually makes the player's sex an interesting factor in the game. Male characters will start off more liked by the nobles and have an easier time getting established with the lords, but the female characters will have a huge advantage late game by being able to marry a warlord.
Other features include jailbreaks, which, while currently a bit buggy, add a new level of difficulty to the game. When your companions are captured after you lose a battle, your forced to sneak into an enemy castle and bust them out. To add icing on the cake, you need to do wearing nothing more than regular clothes and a walking stick. Once you fight your way into the jail, your companions will help fight their way out. Its a cool feature, but unfortunately there's a bug where your companions don't listen to your commands at the moment.
Multiplayer is a whole new game in itself. Once you think you've gotten good at M&B, you sign online and get your bum handed to you in a hand basket. Player vs player fights are immensely challenging, and very well balanced at the moment. Multiplayer really goes to show that, although the game is intuitive and easy to learn, there is a lot to master.Read more ›
-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).

Meh. I hadn't expected this game to be quite so simplistic, both in terms of graphics and in game-play. As with most Paradox games, it has a tendency to get bogged down in minutia. Read morePublished 6 months ago by N. Perz
