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.

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.

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.

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.

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

I hesitated to buy this game but all for nought. Once I started playing I couldn't stop. I felt a real sensation of rivalry against the Rhodoks and Nords and competition with my fellow Khergit Lords. I still have a lot to go but I feel this is a great investment and would recommend to any one if they're looking for a sandbox RPG with lots of mods. I haven't even touched those and I'm juiced to play them!

If you love medivial times and commanding units in a third person command setting, then this is the game for you. Kings, queens, lords, ladies, and you form your own story!

It has that awkward indie game charm. Vanilla gets old quick but the mods are absolutely fantastic. Modding is pretty simple and the game is as modable as Skyrim, possibly even more. Combat is amazing and is the most realistic sword play I have ever seen besides Mount&Blade Warband.
