Mount and Blade: Warband


Mount and Blade: Warband
At first glance there isn’t too much to this game. If you think that you are SOOO wrong. I am astounded by how deep this rabbit hole goes. Like so many reviews out there, I have countless screenshots and videos of me playing in order to review it. I don’t know where to start or what to write down.

Having the political dealings including wooing Noble Ladies, gaining the approval of your King, moving up in the nobility ladder, warring factions with independent standings with each Count and Lord. You can take and hold castles, plunder and raze villages…

Awesome medieval weapons and physics based damage. A horse at full charge and you swinging a sword or mace is devastating. If has the feel of Total War battles except you control one guy and issue commands to your troops. Stabbing your way to victory.

And oh my the modding community is thriving. Including Star Wars mods…
