I wasn't sure what I was expecting from this game... but I'm glad I managed to buy it and play it. This, personally, is much more of a good wargame than Shogun: Total War.

Very fun game! It's an open-world game that allows you to raise armies, fight in tournaments, pillage villages, be a robber and take everything away from whomever you choose, be a lord of a castle and much more! It's really worth it if you buy it during a big sale event where it's like 50-75% off. I bought it for $10 just to realize a few days later that it was then on sale.... But yeah anyway this game is totally recommended by me! Hope this review helped!

With a game that crashes do often, and they refuse to fix it, at least add an autosave feature.

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.

Although this game is great, I would recommend getting mount and blade: warband instead of this. It's basically the same game but with alot better features ( Such as multiplayer ). Just my opinion.

Pretty neat, but Mount and Blade: Warband is bigger, better, and has more mods to go with it. Get that instead.

Still a "yes" for a good game though.

As much as I love it, there's no real reason to buy this one as Warband fixes all the problems with this game and adds new content while only being $10 more dollars. Buy Warband instead, it'll be the better buy in the long run.

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, as well as some general questline/mechanic improvements - it's basically the same game, but more. There's effectively no advantages this original game has over Warband, so it's not really worth purchasing. The one exception to this rule is that there were some mods created for it which did not get ported to Warband, so take a look at those via a Google search to see if one of them might be up your alley.

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.
