First you mount

Then you blade

then you get in to deep politics and everyone hates your insides and you become a prisoner for several hours.

Edit: I recommend buying warband though if you're looking into buying Mount and Blade, It has a lot more content and is basically the same game.

It used to be a negative review, for I wasn't seen the need to buy this particular game, when we have Warband. But... it turns out that Warband singleplayer can't be achieved when you're not connected to Internet. So now I see the point to hold this game altogether with Warband. I suggest you to buy the whole bundle, where will be Warband, Napoleonic Wars and Fire'n'Sword.

I'm in love with that game, I've bought it triple times. I've spended thousands of hours riding and hacking, over and over. Basic Mount'n'Blade runs even with the very dull PCs, like ones we use in offices, you know - with lame videocard, very short amount of RAM... it all doesn't matter! All you need is some free time (you can't play it during your working time, like some facebook flashgames) and testosterone. Yeah, I repeat - in there you'll be riding your horse and constantly brutally punish whoever gets in your way, in that glorified, one-of-a-kind simulator of medieval mercenary.

If you play while connected to the Internet, and have at least a discrete videocard on your PC and 2Gb of RAM - go straight for Warband, which includes this game PLUS gorgeus multiplayer. Plus achievements, trading cards, all of stuff you'd expecting on Steam. But if you suddenly find yourself somewhere in Australia, or just on the farm where you have only outdated laptop from the early 00's... This game is one of the best that you can play out there.

Game itself deserves 8.5/10 mark for its uniqueness and impact on the gaming world. Although as a sandbox RPG-like it is quickly wears off, as a medieval simulator, it's just keep going. And going. And going. Much like that battery rabbit, or the Civilization game.

The game is really awesome. 100% worth buying. It has really lots of benefits:
  • Realistic battles
  • Open world
  • Battle location depends on your map position so that you will almost always have different battle landscape
  • There are lots of skills in the game, which makes your charecter really individual.
  • GREAT party system!!!

Шикарная игра, однозначно стоит своих денег. В игре куча плюсов:
  • Реалистичные битвы
  • Открытый мир
  • Локация битвы зависит от Вашей позиции на карте в момент начала битвы, благодаря чему ландшафт битвы почти всегда будет разным.
  • В игре много раззных скиллов(умений) для персонажа, благодаря чему он точно будет уникальным.
  • ОТЛИЧНАЯ система набора и прокачки отряда!!!

Get Warband, it is far superior to this one. This one is only okay, good for its time.
