Simplified Chinese Added!

Hello all, just a little update to let you know that the small update you received was to add Simplified Chinese to the game, which you can select from the game's "Properties". Shouldn't affect anything else, so don't worry about it if you're not interested in Chinese :).

A fantastic sandbox RPG, just as good as it's successor, Mount and Blade: Warband. Endless replayability value, and a game that you can easily put 100 hours into. Buy it.

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.

Take over castles, kill thousands of men, manage your own army, relations with lords/kings/cities/towns/factions, pillage and burn (looting, my favorite), and a huge map with 5 different factions that you choose to join. You can either be a jerk and chase down peasants and slaughter them, or you can drive bandits out of small towns or stop the enemy lord from pillaging the neighboring town. Be involved in battles for cities or castles with hundreds, maybe even thousands if u want to (i have). Now you have to start off right because i have 1 good character and 3 other bad ones. so dont fool around and get captured by bandits or a mean lord. When you get to my level (which is probably real bad compared to some hardcore mount and blade fan out there), you can battle bandits all by yourself, and just bow them down as they come at you. its a great game with neverending places to capture and people to kill (there's a limit of places, but the people just keep comin! how many babies have to be born with the fact i have killed 35k people)! Worth the money too, trust me, I am a stickler for buying games for any kind of money. This better persuade you to get this, or i will have to send my army of 650 men at you ( would be more troops but they are quite expensive, and i start losing money fast if i go for any more. 112k monies. i do love my money.)

I love this game to death, but DO NOT buy this. Get warband for the same price but with huge improvements. This is an amazing RPG that I love, but warband just has it beat
