Mount and Blade is a wonderful game, however there is no point in purchasing this game - not long after this original release, Mount and Blade: Warband came out. It's largely the same game, using the same map and same general mechanics, but with the inclusion of multiplayer and achievements. There's literally no advantages this original game has over Warband, so it's not worth purchasing.

If you're trying to complete your library or support the developer/publisher? By all means. But if you're looking for the game to purchase, pick up Mount and Blade: Warband, instead.

Do you feel like a future in human trafficking? How about chopping pirates into bite-sized pieces? Always wondered what shoving a pike up somebody's bazingahole would be like? Feel like proving your love to someone by killing some poor innocent sap? Ever wondered what kind of crunch a person makes when they get run over by a horse? If you answered yes to any of the above, Mount & Blade is for you.

There is literally nothing you can't do in this game, and if it's not already there, you can just mod it in. The community is massive and friendly, and there's always new lands to explore courtesy of an endless number of free and paid-for addons. I cannot recommend this game enough. Quit reading this bloody review and go buy it already!

Mount and blade was the start of a epic series this game when i first got it i bummed of it i had tons of fun with joining your own faction and raising a miny army to bring around with you equiping yourself with armour and weapons like swords and bows you can run into battle with minor soldiers or charge in there with horses with a baddass knight style army this game is a must must buy if you like mount and blade it may not have as many features but its still definetly a great game 88/100
