684 hours divided by 24 hours is 28 and a half days. About a month. With that month, I could've:
-Worked extra shifts
-Got a girlfriend
-Worked out
-Became a sociable and likeable person
But I can do most of that stuff in Warband so its okay

Sweat pours from my brow as i close in for the last kill of the round, i sense the eyes of dead players spectating watching my every movement.
I swing left, then block right to cancel throwing him off guard, i repeat this swing then cancel action about 10 times before commiting to the hit.
My sword connects with his dirty russian rags, his hands clutched at the vodka bottle he was using to fight me i lean in close to hear his last words, as he lay there in the snow dying he types out in all chat:' noob, spin 2 win not even good lol', the round ends and the chat fills with abuse.
I sit back in my chair and pluck a loose pringle from my neckbeard, i mutter to myself ' free weekend players' before typing bg no re.
7/3 gr8 game 4 me, highly rektommend Carpal tunnel and loss of all social skill worthwhile.

One of the greatest Multiplayer experiences I have ever had. The singleplayer isn't that bad either! I've just been too hooked with M&B MP that I have given M&B SP zero time. I hear nothing but great things from my singleplaying friends though. If you buy this game, I recommend getting the Napoleonic Wars expansion. It's multiplayer only, but that is where I have had the most fun. There are several different game modes. The first is called Siege. In where a defending team must protect their castle from Enemy advancement until the timer has run out, however, keep your head well hidden from them Snipers. As defending team lives are limited to just five. Or less, depending on the time you joined the map. The attackers however, they have unlimited lives but in order to get to you, they must breach a hole in your wall with cannons and then storm the breach; which normally results in your bayonet stuck in their chests as you sing Rule Britannia; or mention the Kaiser if you're playing as Prussia/Austria.
The next gamemode in M&B MP is Battle. In Battle, both teams have just one life. And there is no respawning until the round is complete, so if you charge ahead early on and get mowed down by 6 Cavalry who have joined together and created a small posse, then you're going to be waiting 5-6 minutes for the round to end probably. That can be frustrating so I recommend teaming up with your teammates, rather than go lone wolf assasin style. The game also features TDM and DM gamemodes, I don't need to explain these. As they feature heavily in pretty much every game with a gun or sword and has multiplayer.

Overall, I recommend M&B to anybody if you're a fan of the era it's set in, and are war crazy. Or if you like the RPG and open world elements of the singleplayer. The game also has a VERY strong modding community. And you should try out some of the awesome mods. This was a fantastic experience.

It's not Warband until you see a naked madman running at you with a sword as long as he is tall.

I created my character, Gave him some points,
Gave him a name,
Chose his backstory,
Spawned in the game thinking to myself " I'm going to easily rule this kingdom with my mighty beard "

* Gets knocked unconscious with a wooden club *

* Wake up only to find i've been robbed of everything, My beard cut off and has been taken prisoner only to be ransomed as a sex slave *

10/10 would try and fail to be king again!
