The ONLY dlc where it's more fullfilling to make friends with the entire enemy team as the drummer boy than it is to be #1 on the leaderboard.

10/10 would buy again.

Now this dlc is a special case. It is actually really bad but for some reason it's the most fun and addictive dlc around for Mount and Blade. I have played this game for a while so I think I have some right to criticize.

Let's start with the UI. It is a bit 3rd party, second hand, dollar store stuff but does it's job. The font drives me crazy as it is bad and the same throughout. Who ever does this job needs to have their contract reviewed (sorry). However if you own Mount and Blade you would already know this.

There are also some bugs, like building stuff. The engineer class is cool but to build you need to use some weird right-click hammer thingy then hope you are looking in the right direction when you build something. Then to construct you need to hit the construction with the hammer while crossing you fingers that you don't miss which makes the building process quite long and tedious.

This game is also very sloooooow. You will likely spend most of the game moving around than actually shooting or battling. And don't get me started on reloading - remember these are muskets, and they like to remind you they are.

I have also noticed that this is a copy-paste game. The difference between Mount and Blade: With Fire and Sword and this is pretty much nothing except for some new sounds, textures and gamemodes. So ctrl-c, ctrl-v *type* *type* is what you're getting for $12.99NZD.

Another point is that after a little while you will start to use something fairly often - the chat system. If you don't like racist jokes or offensive statements you will be alienated at what some of these guys say. Since you can create characters anonymously and change usernames at will, you can expect a lot of Donald_Trump and godie♥♥♥♥♥♥'s joining your match.

So after all this why should you buy it? I don't know why to be honest. I actually never really thought of this stuff before I wrote it. But for some reason it has that team spirit feel when you play - even under all the political and useless messages you really feel part of a team and it's fun watching guys do stupid stuff for attention which can sometimes make you laugh so hard you fall off your chair. This dlc brings together all Mount and Blade fans into one online never-ending match and it can sometimes be really boring or really fun.

In the end it's worth it. Just hope you get on a good server.

This DLC is almost essential if you are buying M&B Warband. The native module for the game is loads of fun, don't get me wrong, but if I'm not going to be playing the single player campaign, I will almost always find myself playing Napoleonic instead. The multiplayer has a wide variety of game modes, as well as maps (the number of which is essentially infinite since anyone can create a custom map and use it on a server he/she hosts.) The community in this game is fantastic, with the exception of the rare jerk who decides to massacre the harmless musicians. I wish Napoleonic had a single player campaign like the native and Viking DLC, but the multiplayer is enough fun that you'll hardly ever notice a single player's absence.

With the next Mount and Blade coming out this fall, I think everyone who's played this game is very excited, but I think it would be a travety if Bannerlord doesn't have a DLC like Napoleonic Wars. I cannot recommend this DLC enough.

10/10 would play Amazing Grace on bagpipes again

Great game! Easy to learn, but hard to master. Epic line battles with fun scenarios. It can get laggy at times, but it is a small price to pay for such a fun expeience. Various historical roles have to be filled and the path to victory lies in teamwork. Each unit is accurate to its historical background, which allows for good immersion. There is strong playerbase with many regiments recruiting for competitive battles. I highly recommed it to fans of history and good combat.
