I found M&B's mechanics take some geting used, especially combat. Once you develop an understanding of what's going on and what to do, the game really starts to open up. It doesn't help that you start off all alone with a low-level character with no one else in your party. That's the challenge though! Tournaments are a good way to learn the fighting mechanics. Level up by fighting small parties of bandits (a horse makes things loads easier) and recruit villagers to your party, who will also level up. Launch sieges against castles or defend your castles against sieges. Eventually, you get a lordship and maybe even kingship, but I haven't gotten that far yet.

Mount & Blade is one of the best games of all time. However M&B Warband is pretty similar and better.

Do not buy this game - but not for the reason you think!

Mount & Blade is a fantastic game, and I've invested many hours in it.

The problem lies in it's "Sequel". You see, Mount and Blade: Warband is less a sequel, and more just Mount & Blade 1 with more features. Up until a few weeks ago, they were the same price too.

There is literally no reason to ever buy Mount & Blade 1, when you should just buy Warband. Just go buy Warband.

What's worse, when I bought Mount & Blade, I was given a guarantee that I'd receive free updates for the game forever. They got out of this by abusing a loophole and creating a "Sequel" game.

In short - M&B is insanely fun. But if you want it, go buy Warband instead.

Mount and Blade is a very fun game, however I believe that Mount and Blade: Warband is vastly superior in many ways, bettering the experience as a whole and reccomend you buy that one instead.
