This game is AWESOME!!!!

I created a character whose father was a thief. After he disappeared whilst I was a wee lass, some tradesman took me in and taught me stuff. I then went on to poach animals for a profit... (This was all in the character creation process!)

(Game starts) I rode my horse off into that direction (me thinks West) and came across 5 Looters. They weren't very nice. I wanted more of a challenge with my first real combat, so I threw all of my throwing knives away! (I actually missed. very hard. damn hard.) I spent the next 25 minutes ( I kid you not) trying to run over the little buggers with my horse. Yay!!!

My review, or rather my suggestion: Use a freakin' sword!!! Add to your character at a later time the ability/usage of throwing stuff.... *whew*

Best Sandbox I ever played. A bit buggy at the end, still is the best medieval combat simulator I had play so far. Totally recommended.

Very cool RPGsimmanagement with a fun combat system. Very dated graphics (looks like a little lower res Oblivion). This game reminds me of a choose-your-own-adventure or an old DOS text RPG with a mix of open world and party management and a very unique, great combat style. It's very fun to play.

This is probably the smoothest running game I have ever played. You go from menu to in-game to overworld in a fraction of a second. No loading whatsoever.

Parts of this game (the worldmap) have the feel of that old flash game where you were a fish that only got bigger by eating smaller fish, avoiding larger predators on the landscape.
Parts of this game (party management/dialogue/quests) feels like a RPG like Skyrim.
Parts of this game (combat, especially on horseback) have the fast-twitch satisfaction of a shooter or a sports game.

Solid game. Especially for >$10.

I would recommend getting mount and blade: warband instead of this. It's basically the same game but with alot better features

an ok game and good fun as the attack system is well made but a couple of annoying glitches: you can take castles without going to war but this will cause them to attack your castles

well if you just look at the hours i have playing it that should just about sum it up. One of the best sandbox games ever almost the same as GTA. So if you like GTA you will love this game.
