The original Mount and Blade: Warband by itself is hilariously fun with chaotic multiplayer and the ability to customize your chosen class and including its several gamemodes, but NWs is EVEN MORE CHAOTIC BY FAR.

Long-range firefights are now quite common, many, many classes are available PER NATION, the new maps are quite nice, cavalry is still seemingly inevitable to destroy your lines, arm and bear several artillery pieces against your foes, and simply blow the heck out of forts. A massive melea or charge effort is always going to occur around every step. THIS OFFICIAL MULTIPLAYER MOD IS BY FAR CHAOS, CHAOS, AND MORE CHAOS!!!

NEW FEATURES: Obviously the maps are new to it. There are several fun maps to choose from, with several different styles, etc. Also, buildings can be destroyed by explosive attacks from artillery in the game, so don't expect to be invincible in them.

Another neat feature is the engineer/sappers classes. They allow you to build your own fortifications anywhere and however you like (requiring buildpoints as the drawback). Sappers are essential in Siege Battles to patch up those destructable walls and breaches....

As for Sieges, they are insanely fun and always full of action and constant pushes to overwhelm the defenders' defences. Firefights and artillery are always a major danger for either side. Watch as your comrades that are slightly ahead of you get mowed down by defending fire as they enter a breach. SIEGES IN THIS GAME ARE VERY FUN TO FOOL AROUND WITH, SO DON'T HESITATE TO TRY 'EM!

As for the Mount and Blade: Warband - Napoleonic Wars' COMMUNITY goes, it is quite decent. The fact they have EVEN MORE IN-DEPTH AND MORE MODERN-LIKE MILITARY RPGing and Regiments make the Regimental/Clan EXPERIENCE almost THRICE as good as the original clan combat (of course if you like constantly meleaing with enemies as always).

If you are lucky, you can find an amazing group of people that host immense battles including many different regiments at the same time per team, with a sole or several main leaders for that entire team (RPG!, RPG!).

Overall, I felt that this dlc was terrible. First, lets start with what this game actually did well. It had really nice detail in graphics and sound, and good unit variety. The good unit variety allows you to choose a soldier to play as to your liking. That is all I can really say good about this dlc. To begin with how this dlc was was bad, lets first discuss the use of muzzle loaded guns in a M&B game. It does not work well because first, the guns are so innaccurate that I found most of my frustration with not being able to shoot a guy 10 meters away from me. The guns are so painfully inaccurate, that you would be better off charging with a bayonet than trying to actually shoot somebody. Second, the guns take around 10 second to reload. This is very annoying because somebody on the enemy team will just flank around and shoot you, or just charge at you with the bayonet. And of couse, you must be standing for the whole reload, and that creates a lot of stress because you will be shot at the whole time, and that is how I would usually die. Next, the maps are very glitchey. There will be a lot of walking through barrels and tents on certain maps. To continue, the spawning system is outright broken. You will either spawn across the battlefield from the enemy, or at very close range. I found that to be the most sloppy aspect of the whole dlc. That is why I give the Napoleonic Wars dlc a 3/10 as my final verdict. I really want my money back, and I highly reccomend you don't buy this dlc to save yourself the frustration.

A dlc that is worse then most mods featuring only multiplayer support, don't buy this as many mods do the same thing and include singleplayer content.

The reasons, why you should get this game:
Regiments
Pretty good melee system
Pretty nice events (including tournaments) hosted by community.
Historically accurate factions & units
Some interesting game types on servers, scripted by community.
Shooting is meh for me but without it, this game would not be interesting.


The reasons, why you should not get this game:
Some really disgusting bugs that can ♥♥♥♥ you off
Sometimes servers are being pretty laggy

I still recommend this.

Its amazing! Such a blast to play. Just some annoying connection and graphical bugs. Singleplayer would have been nice as well. But even with these gripes, the online gaeplay is some of the best I have played in a long time.
