**Review for Reforged edition only**
If you played Native a lot and you wish for a bit of challenge then this dlc is for you.With many adjustable options added in reforged edition you can now set your sandbox however you like. Ignoring the campaing you have 3 sandbox options to choose from

*Regular-u start at lvl1 just as you did in native you have several starting options to choose from which will affect your starting stats,money,gear.

*Lord-u start as a lord u still have the same options as if u would start a regular sandbox with one small difference.You start at level 17 u allocate your skill hower u like then you choose your faction.You start with your own village plus you get a bunch of troops within your party and positive standing with few lords from your own faction.

*King-all from above but instead of governing your land you have to take care of your whole kingdom now.It's wouldn't recomend this option to someone who is just starting since it is quite challenging if you not 100 % sure what you doing.
Additional features:

All other features like working in the farm or in the lumber mill are pretty much useless since it won't be rewarding at all and it's boring.
Having a dog companion ? personally i hate (horse ?) animations on the dog plus (horse?) audio which is very frustrating at some point during the game.
Hunting is cool if u deep in enemy territory low on food and raiding a village is not an option.I guess it's cool as the last resort.


This deserves it's own paragraph as it was a common issues for many players before reforged was released.
With new mechanics affecting the gamplay like blood loss ,stamina, massive morale drops etc. Game could be impossible for new players , the options to turn some of them off was there from the begining however i would say pretty scarce comparing them to what you can adjust now.You can set your own goals like becoming infamous raider or iconic Ruler and you can progress towards that goal however you like.If you want to slice through 20 enemies on your own go on adjust everything on easy and you set. But try the same thing on realistic setup and u screwed by the peasant with his bearing rake if you wont be extra carefull.

In overall i would recommend this game to anyone who likes a bit of challenge because then you will enjoy it most.However if you just a casual gamer try it out as well with so many different options regarding game difficulity even your 4yrs old sister can run a kingdom or raid whole britania razing everything to the ground.

So yep. Do whatever you like folks tener is not that much for a dlc anyway one fatty burger less and you on it.

Trying out the Story mode.

I create my Character, its almost like the regular one but with some extra options to chose personality traits, religion and etnicity.
I barely start when I need to go shoping, make dinner and what not IRL so I leave it in the tutorial since I could not save yet.
I forget it several hours, return to finnish it so I can save.

The attack does not come! I guess I waited with it paused to long.

The ships archer fire at something in the water for several minutes and I wait and wait.
While running around the boat I slip and fall into the water, the attack is then triggered.
I wake up, set out to start my epic Viking life.

I see 4 Robbers, instead of running away I scream for Odin! and charges the 4 men with just a rusty knife.
My agressive attack is successful, I manage to cut everyone as they swarm me, routing two of them while the other two keeps hacking at me from behind their shields.

Hurt and soaked in blood I finally manage to cut them down, starring wildly after the other two.
I see one and runs after him, his wounds are bleeding and he finally colapses unconscious from blood loss.
I lot the corpses for their meager possesions, finding only rags, some coins and some stones.
In my frustration I take the unconscious man captive intending to sell him for what I can get.
While going back I spot the man who got away, still hurt but determined to get myself two slaves instead of one I throw rocks at him from a distance until he colapses.

Back in town I sell them, sleep and drink, joins a meele bet on myself and wins the price.

10/10 would Viking again.

Viking Conquest has not recieved very high praise from fans or critics, due to it's many bugs and the lag that is often present on the battlefield. However, I believe this game is incredibly immersive and well worth its price tag.

+Beautiful Soundtrack- Like the other mount and blade titles, VK has a soundtrack that befits its medieval timeline.
+Overall, it's just a beautiful game, with slightly better graphics than Warband or Fire and Sword.
+Large campaign map- While all Mount and Blade campaign titles have a big map, this emcompasses the entirety of the England isles and all the different kingdoms that made it up, Denmark, Freise, and Noregr.
+Overlooking Image- When you visit any settlement, there is the usual options presented to you, as well as a large overlooking image that shows the city and it's citizens milling about. There is even an option to disable this should it cause any lag.
+Combat, just like in all other M&B titles, is fun and easy to learn. VK adds in "advanced combat," which adds in positions like shield wall into the commands for your units. It also allows for 750 units on the battlefield, other than 150. The lag doh
+Storyline- It has a storyline where you play as a man hell bent on revenge. This storyline takes you all through-out England, to every unique location on the map, and to the scene of historicals battles as well as fictional ones.

-The lag- While updates fix the lag in some areas, in others, such as large battle combat, there is fairly intense lag.
-Bugs- There are quite a few bugs in VK. Some little, some annoying, some game-breaking. The storyline, while neat, presents a whole number of more bugs as gameplay is changed and not really done well.
-Horrifyingly ugly women- Like Mount and Blade is not known for its pretty graphics or women, but these girls are just plain hideos.
-Attractive Men- While this might be a plus for some, when the men are prettier than the women, it cuts the immersion.

This game recieved a lot of hate on its release for being unfinished, unplayable, and too laggy to be worth it. I believe that this used to be the case, but several updates have brought the game to playable and I think it deserves more attention now. It's fun, immersive, unique from the other titles and not in a bad way. Buy it peas

On Linux? Tux says No!

Forget this mod. You can have Wizard levels in shell scripting and it will still crash. Actual dumpster fires are more reliable.

Why are you still here get as far away as you can.

Update #2-Sep 1, 2016 @ 9:44pm

It's been well over a year since I last updated this review, and since then Viking Conquest has recieved some major enchancements with the Reforged Edition. Many of the original bugs and crahes have been ironed out, and after 12 hours of gameplay in the last week, I have yet to experience any technical issues or glitches. I am still confident that Viking Conquest is an excellent source of entertainment, even moreso with the latest game features. In conclusion, I highly encourage anyone who loves the Dark Ages and M&B to pick up a copy of this DLC.
Valhalla awaits! :)

P.S Still surprised over the fact that 1,700+ took the time to like/dislike this review. Thanks.

Update #1- Dec 12, 2014 @ 11:57pm
-Fixed some spelling errors
-Found crashing to be constant, and needs to be addressed

I would like to also add a thank you for all the people who took the time to look at my review. Please leave feedback in the comments below, or corrections. Thanks again! :)

What I've seen thus far:
-Redone UI, new feel to game.
-Two different types of SP (Storyline and a Sandbox) along with difficulty settings
-Fresh character creation screne
-New additions to character creation, including ability to pick ones religion, nationality, and personality
-Animation enhancements
-Greatly improved village scenes. Structures are not just flat, detailess objects anymore; instead, they have dimensions
-Village AI bettered as well, pathfinding and whatnot needs tweaking; children added
-Historically/semi-historically accurate map
-Two new religions, Christianity and Polytheist Norse religion
-Army cap greatly improved
-Parties actually have a moving animation on map, along with icons that follow the party leader- which represents troops
-Altered system of recruiting, you need the permission of village elders to even recruit in their village; can hire veteran troops but certain level of reknown is needed beforehand.
-Naval combat is given a larger amount of attention and emphasis
-Dialouge changed, many new lines and choices
-New historically fitting currency
-(obvious) Reskins and additions of troops
- Not 100% about this one, but early on I visited a priest of Odin; he asked if I could pay $300 to equip and recruit Scandinavian 'holy warriors'; this may suggest that you can lead wars of faith.
-New buildings (ex. monstary)
-(Super Obvious) New map, with slightly better graphics

A few negatives features:
-Experienced lag and a few texture issues (there was a hole in the map at one point, small however)
-Unexpected and quite random crashes
-Issues with the music not playing

OVERALL: I would totally reccomend the game at the moment. Unless I encounter some game breaking bug, I will continue doing so. If you can overlook the bugs and issues, that is. Reasonable price, I might wait for a sale though.

The poor reviews are out of date. This is a superb Viking game. If you like Mount and Blade, and you like vikings, this is for you. Raid, plunder, sell villagers to salt mines and stand as the speartip of the Norse Invasion. Or the shield against it.

Or, you know, wander around Ireland doing manual labour and looking for a dog.

This mod was made by the Brytenwalda team, who made that mod outstanding. The launch of viking conquest was initially buggy and thus the resulting negative steam reviews that idiots haven't bothered to change and abandoned the game and never came back. There was one other problem the initial game was lacking content, it did probably have more stuff than native but it still felt empty compared to brytenwalda.

Now the game is no longer buggy and its decently optimized (As much as can be on the warband engine but with better graphics than native). The lack of content has been fixed with the released reforged edition which adds more content. It really is a great module with lots of good features that i wish were in other warband mods, and which i hope carry on into bannerlord. They aren't adding any more content since its finished but they are still doing some balancing patches. I would buy it now if i were you or wait for a sale.

So let me start out by saying that most of the bugs are fixed, let me emphasize, MOST, I have encountered some gamebreaking bugs, but they only happened once in the amount of hours I put into this, but still an issue. But if you didn't play because of that specific reason, you can come back now, because it finally works.

Here's my review for M&B: Warband - Viking Conquest

So I personally think this DLC was incredibly well made, the sea battles are fun, the regular battles are fun, and the whole Campaign they made for you is really REALLY cool. You'll find yourself having to make some difficult choices, whether to help a Jarl or not, who may seem more than he appears to be, you'll have to decide whether to help a poor villagers daughter escape from a Jarl, if you want a ship. It's just really cool. However there is one thing that really freaking bothers me. The tournaments. These pile of ♥♥♥♥ tournaments are so ♥♥♥♥ing rigged it's ridiculous. I can't win any of them because me and my team always get stuck with crappy weapons while the other teams get throwing spears and big ♥♥♥ swords and axes, really pisses me off. Hopefully in the future they make tournaments easier, because right now, it's freaking impossible for me. I also have a major problem with the recruitment system in this. Not only do you need permission from the town, but you have to PAY them to let you recruit, you could do some tasks for the King and try to ask him to give you permission to recruit in all of his land, but you not only need to be on his good side, you need 150 renown, which surprisingly takes a while to get. You could solve this by checking Easy Recruitment at the start of the game, which allows you to recruit from any city or village without permission, however, it makes them free, which bothers me because you can mass up a big army quickly and it kind of breaks immersion, if they make it where you don't need permssion, but it still costs money, it'll make the immersion much better for me.

So if you want a fun, action packed DLC, to an already phenomenal game, pick this up, it's a ton of fun, except for the tournaments, ♥♥♥♥ those tournaments.

The DLC adds a lot of interesting elements and new battle features (like sea battles), however, it is very buggy, and prone to crashing especially during large siege battles. This does not happen with native warband or any other DLC/Mod.
