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.

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.

A decent MP game, I really like the battle mechanics, and the Graphics/UI. Only problem is the gamers themselves with some rather annoying games, but those are the clans and regiments.
Over all, a nice addition to M&B Warband, though i would like to see Calradia made so it too is in a Napoleanic time-period(like the Calradia-Imperial Age mod)

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.

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!).

I dont know why but as of the day I've purchased it, it'll only launch warband, and not give me the option to do the napoleonic wars selection like you should be getting. I still think it looks like a good game though. If this does not change, I'll have to e-mail steam support.

UUUUAHHHHHHHH GOTT SCHUTZE DEN KAISER

But yeah, pretty worthwile if you ask me. The game's community is pretty active, and even if you're not in a group for it, it's still easy to find full public servers.
