Not really worth it. Get M&B Warband instead. It has everything this one has and more.

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.

This game is AWESOME!!!!

I created a character whose father was a thief. After he disappeared whilst I was a wee lass, some tradesman took me in and taught me stuff. I then went on to poach animals for a profit... (This was all in the character creation process!)

(Game starts) I rode my horse off into that direction (me thinks West) and came across 5 Looters. They weren't very nice. I wanted more of a challenge with my first real combat, so I threw all of my throwing knives away! (I actually missed. very hard. damn hard.) I spent the next 25 minutes ( I kid you not) trying to run over the little buggers with my horse. Yay!!!

My review, or rather my suggestion: Use a freakin' sword!!! Add to your character at a later time the ability/usage of throwing stuff.... *whew*

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.

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.
