10/10 This is three quarters of your Mount & Blade experience.
On this game there are massive communities in which people create regiments, these regiments all compete in weekly linebattles together with an average of around 160 players every battle.

Amazing DLC for a game, runs well on most computers, definitley worth giving a try. The community is pretty great too (mostly). People tend to form regiments and host events which can be pretty fun, my most enjoyable experiences ingame were with the 54th Regiment of Foot. Probably one of my favorite games I've ever played, and I've played a lot of games, both on Steam and off of Steam.

I reccomend this game to everybody, other than those who play strictly for story, for it lacks a single player campaign.

Napoleonic Wars itself is a great DLC, being a member of "regiments" (clans for those who don't know what one is) is a good experience. Community is ♥♥♥♥ though.

With me! With me!! Charge!!!

Napoleonic Wars is a really addicting game. It has some great moments especially with friends. Just the other day in command mode, a friend called for me to save him. He was the last man in his unit of line, an officer who's men fell to a swift cavalry charge. He was running towards me while being pursued by a single lancer, another officer in fine head dress, who was adamant to run him down. I was a captain of Hussar Cavalry, while I ordered my men to hold position, I alone raced forward to save him. Positioning my horse between he and the Lancer, I charged from a trot to a full gallop and ran him through with the razor point of my saber. Once you get past the lance tip, it is a bit like killing rabbit. He was thrown from his horse, dead, as the beast ran back to their line. I saluted my officer friend with my saber and he did the same. We both returned to the line, the day's fighting had only just begun.

These are the kind of moments you can expect in Command Mode of Napoleonic Wars. If you are a fan of the time period or the great book series "Sharpe" by Bernard Cornwell then you will love this game. You can even role play as the 95th Rifles from the series as the Greencoats are present on the United Kingdom side. I, however, usually play the French. Look for me on the battlefield, my name is Jean-Luc Pierre.

This DLC is absolutely genius. There is some single-player functionality, but it really shines in multiplayer. The Napoleonic Wars community has piles of player regiments (clans) that are happy to train you for 19th century combat as a rifleman, line infantry, cavalry, or artillery. My personal favorite aspect of this game is the commander battle. Fighting in a 20-player commander battle is truly an epic experience and requires a lot of tactical awareness and teamwork.

My only complaint is that in commander battles, you cannot manually change the angle of your regiment, but have to basically 'drag it out' in a really ad hoc way. Other than that one fault, this is the best value DLC of the decade.

Excited to see this DLC revived in Bannelords, in particular...

Mount & Blade: Warband - Viking/Vanilla/Napoleonic Review

Video Review

With a little polish and a plug in the hole, Vikings will become another welcome addition to Mount & Blade franchise. Just give it some time.
