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

Before i start my review i enjoyed the game but if your looking for more content and more things to do I would get Mount & Blade warband.. Reason has more things to do, fixed a lot of bugs on mount & blade and a lot more mods. Trust me and go purchase it. Its literally identical than this one..

Mount & Blade is a really interesting game. You start off as a nobody and you work your way up, including your army. While you hire people for your army, you must have weapons and food for them. If no food they will leave you.You can do quest by doing small things around town and delievering messages from kings to other kings. You can always siege castles and villages if you want to get supplies.

Pros
Big battles
Attack villages and castles
Nice inventory system

Cons
bus
no multiplayer
Not Many mods
