Mount & Blade is much like its successor Warband only with a few notable differences.

Personally I think this game is amazing, but if you want to get the full RPG Experience then it might be better just to get Warband if you're not a game collector like myself because it offers more features.

On the other hand, Mount & Blade has this really awesome mod called Star Wars Conquest
http://www.moddb.com/mods/swconquest.

PROS
- Includes Steam Trading Cards
- Singleplayer and Multiplayer types available
- Has a large number of popular mods available

CONS
- No Steam Achievements
- Graphics

My Rating: 10/10 (Recommended)

Mount & Blade- A medieval game that captures the feeling of being a knight pretty well. It's really awesome, especially since it's a open world game. So far things were going for my adventurer, named S9y The Unbeyond. I had a decent party size, was doing quests. Money in my pocket.... Until then I accidentally joined in a war. Now I know what you're thinking...

How does someone accidentally join a war?!

Well.... You see I had a quest to stop this war with 2 kingdoms, and the only way was to convince the lords to stop fighting... Which of course, didn't work, because the lords' wanted 7200 denars to stop, or you could persuade one of them, at the sacrifice of our friendship. But I wasn't friends with any of them, so to become one of the lords' friend, I did some quests. This was working... Until I got a quest about meeting a spy. I skimmed over it, and accepted not thinking of what this would do. Then as I soon I pressed it, 3 other kingdoms had declared me a enemy.. Even though I went back and declined the quest. So.. I couldn't stop the war, and the time to complete the quest ran out. So now I'm unintentionally in a war, with 3 other kingdoms.
Oops.

Other than than that, nothing eventful happened. It was really just a typical afternoon. (At least I'm getting paid to fight in this war.)

8/10 Would accidentally war again.

If this game looks good to you, I suggest Mount & Blade: Warband. Warband simply has more features, although this is practically the same game. Warband has a multiplayer, more immersive gameplay and includes the ability to rule your own kingdom; which this lacks. It is simply not a good idea to buy both this and Warband, you will likley be disapointed, unless of course you buy the full collection. So basically my advice is, either buy Warband by itself, or the full collection.

I recently got the older Mount and Blade games on Steam and I have been enjoying playing both of the older games again. While my favorite Mount and blade game is still Warband, its nice to see the roots of the series.

Mount and Blade is an RPG, but there is minimal plot, and for the most part its up to you to decide your characters story. Mound and Blade games are very open ended, and have tons of stuff to do. I recommend anyone who likes RPGs try the Mount and Blade games, while there may be some other games like the Mount and Blade games out there, Mount and Blade really did find its niche, and it sure has gotten a lot of fans since then.

Have you ever wanted to have your own band of mercenaries in the times of swords and shields. Well now you can.

Pros
-Character Customization

-Companions with cool backstories

-Feeling like a badass with your own personal army at your back

-Arena Combat

-you can take over the whole map under your kingdom of choice(very big map)

-With mods you can play this game in the star wars universe

Cons

- control of army limited to Halt , retreat , and go

- lots of grinding to get a big army

Get Warband instead. More bang for your buck. Nevertheless, this is still a great game, just outshadowed by its little brother

Amazing amount of time spent playing this game. I love it so much more than the expansions - I prefer this combat style to the newer version because it seems a lot less wonky. Anticipating the sequel so hard.

This is the type of game that you start playing and hate, then you keep playing and slowly your hate turns to love. Best played with mods that cater to what you want. It can be cluncky and confusing but well worth it.

This is a great game, too much fun. BUT... BUY WARBAND... they are the same game basicly. Warband should not be sold separately, it should be downloadeble for this game, or even just an update.

I felt bad because of buying both....

still recommended if warband is more expansive than this one....

Ever wanted to fight as a knight in massive battles where you attack either ranged or close quarters? Bow and Arrow or Sword and Shield? Well, how's about the ability of taking over castles, raiding enemy villages and overthrowing kings? Well then this game would be the best one to keep you busy for hours. Epic gameplay, graphics are farely outdated, but still, it makes for a great game and a terrific journey to the days in which thee might slay thine enemies with great reposte and a tiny army for great measure.

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.

  • 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!!!
