Excellent medieval sandbox game that won't be brought down by it's somewhat clunky-ish combat.

Probably the worst of all mount and blade games, i own the whole collection this is the worst of them. If you want a better version of this game get Mount & Blade warband, it's like this game but just better.

Skip this game and go straight to Mount & Blade: Warband. Its the same game with a different map and smaller hit boxes.

If you do buy this game alway keep in mind that it is a sandbox game with no end so you decide when it ends.

If your looking for a review on this game you've come to the wrong place, but if your looking for an outstanding pie recipe you've come to the right place.

Ingredients:
1. 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
2. 1/2 cup white sugar
3. 1/2 cup brown sugar
4. 1/4 cup water
5. 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
6. 1 pinch salt
7. 5 apples - peeled, cored and sliced
8. 1 pastry for double-crust pie

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
2. Combine butter, white sugar, brown sugar, water, cinnamon, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, remove from heat and set aside.
3. Roll out half the pastry to fit a 9-inch pie plate. Place bottom crust in pie plate; pour in apple slices.
4. Roll out top crust into a 10-inch circle. Cut into 8 (1-inch) wide strips with a sharp paring knife or pastry wheel. Weave the pastry strips, one at a time, into a lattice pattern. Fold the ends of the lattice strips under the edge of the bottom crust and crimp to seal.
5. Pour butter-sugar mixture over top of pie, coating the lattice, and allowing any remaining sauce to drizzle through the crust.
6. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and bake until the crust is golden brown, the caramel on the top crust is set, and the apple filling is bubbling, 35 to 40 more minutes. Allow to cool completely before slicing.

I suggest if you are going to buy a mount and blade game buy mount and blade warband or wait for bannerlord because mount and blade warband is much more fleshed out with better game concepts.

The original. A true classic, a true milestone and one of the best games I have ever played. Play Warband instead though, it's even better.

This Medievil sandbox game is fun, enjoying and relaxing to play. The comabt is simplistic but also fun. The choices in this game are many from making your own empire to helping an already existing faction take over or just hop around each faction being a mercenary. The gameplay is easy to understand and fun and the added need of strategy in some battles makes the game that much more fun. However, the graphics as well as customization are to be desired as character customization is quite rough and very few options exists for facial hair, hair color, hair styles, and overall facial features. The graphics are there but look rough and edgy making the game hard to really appreciate it's true beauty. This game also boast an impressive skill set allowing for you to spec into many different weapons as well as skills and attributes. This game gets an overall of 8/10 with the graphics and customization spoiling it's potential.

I started out with a horse.

I named it Dipsy.

I lost her after a few bandit attacks while I was romaing around the map, and was devestated

Swore to avenge Dipsy.

Went to village of peasants and spoke to the elder.

Recruited 4 farmers.

2 Hours later all of the bandits are dead across the map and I have 200+ soilders, my own land, 10 bandit slaves who had a part in killing Dipsy, A fortune of money, the hand of a beautiful nordic princess and horses for all of my heroes and some of my troops.

All the horses are named Dipsy.

We are the Dipsy Rebellion.

10/10 would rampage again.
