So my computer isn't the best. The only games I can run are Minecraft and most Flash games. Somebody reccomended this game to me, and said it'd probably work on my computer. I bought it, and it ran amazingly! It's great to finally have another game I can play without my computer exploding like an N64 trying to run No Man's Sky. The combat is complex and exciting, and is extremely diverse. The graphics, though simple, are charming.

Except for the humans. I tried for at least thirty minutes to try and make a good looking character, but no matter what I do, he always ends up looking terrifying. The map is a fun way to get from place to place. Fighting looters is fun, and, though it happens quite often, it's always exciting and fun.

I got this game in a complete back for 75% off. Even though the titles after are good, this game destroys them in one way, which makes it way better and more playable for me. This way is combat. The other games have a function where your sword moves in the direction your mouse is moving in, while this particular game basically sets your attack in the direction of the nearest enemy. Although this sounds a lot more basic, I prefer it, along with a lot of other people.
The graphics are about what you'd expect from a 2008 title, especially from a game of this type. The scales of some of the fights are really quite amazing, even though sometimes if you're fighting a massive enemy army they have to send the rest in as reinforcements or something. This is because at the time of this game's release (over 8 years ago), there wasn't really good enough hardware to have LOADS of enemies on screen AND let you fight. (Some RTS games at the time had a lot of enemies, but the graphics were inferior and you couldn't actually fight since they're RTS titles lol).
I recommend this game to anyone who wants to invest a lot of time into one game, but also to people who don't have loads of times, as you can save and quit the game at any time you want. Seriously, GET. THIS. GAME.

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!

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.
