If you're reading this review, I'm going to assume you're one of two people.

1. Someone who has never played a Mount & Blade title before
2. Someone who has played Warband, and is wondering if this game is worth getting

If you've just now found the game on steam and haven't played Warband, I'd recommend buying Warband instead. It's a bit more expensive, but all in all it's a more polished game with some nice new mechanics that doesn't exist in this game.

If you've played Warband alot, and really like it, I recommend buying this game. Sure, the gameplay is a bit worse than Warband, so if you want to play Native, I'd just recommend Warband. So why do I recommend it? Mods. Soooo many mods...

So, if it's on sale, I'd recommend you getting it, seeing as how many mods there are here that will never come to Warband. If you haven't played Mount & Blade and don't give a ♥♥♥♥ about mods, just buy Warband.

I'll give it a positive, even though it's a bit of both negative and positive depending on who you are.

I would highly recommend getting Mount & Blade: Warband over this game.

But, if you must play this one (Mount & Blade), check out the mods.

You will enjoy them.

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.

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 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.
