best dlc for any game I've ever played. And also join a regiment, here's why;

During a siege battle I requested to be are regimental drummer, as we charged the ladder, our regiment was picked off, when we got to the wall, I went up against it and started playing as my regiment climbed up the ladder and got massacred, I was the only person alive. For 20 minutes I kept playing against that wall with defenders tring to shoot this annoying drummer who wouldn't stop playing and wouldn't die. Wave after wave of my regiment came and got massacred. Those defenders hated me.

12/10 will make defenders go deaf again

This is an amazing dlc. Its only drawback is that there is no singleplayer apart from a custum battle. this game still has plenty of players and is plenty of fun. there a variety of gamemodes but seige is the one i play the most and i would say is mostenjoyable commander battles are good but sometimes lag a bit if their are to many units on.

overall i would say this is a great game that will run on nearly any computer and has endless hours of enjoyment.

Although this installment is multiplayer only, I fully recommend it. It is a well fleshed out expansion for Mount & Blade: Warband and would recommend picking it up considering it is polished and provides unique combat elements to the series that are otherwise not explored due to the time period in which the previous installments take place in. I found using the new rocket weapons to be very fun, and all the new artillery pieces in this expansion are interesting to use. The combat uses the same tried and true mechanics as the previous games, but the weapons have been expanded upon. Overall I recommend this game for fans of the series, but would not recommend buying M&B:W solely to play this expansion.

Napoleonic Wars is a very fun and cool addition to Mount and Blade: Warband. It adds cool artillery and the ability to build fortifications. It's also pretty cool to participate in line battles. I give this DLC a 10/10

You can join a regiment and do line battles, if you don't know what that is, then youtube it. It's really fun, but if that's not your style, then there are other ways to play the game. If you prefer american civil war than Napoleonic era, then there is a mod called North vs South that has plenty of player base. speaking of player base, if that is what you are worried about, then don't. There are a lot of people that still plays this game.

Brought in the sale, thought I would try one game and then get the dog in from outside because it was snowing (8:15pm)-

Checked my watch which seemed like 15 minutes later because the dog was barking (4:53am) Thought one more then I will get the dog in..

Checked my watch again because the dog had stopped barking (8:37am)

WARNING.... This game will make you lose track of time and will kill your pets if left outside in the snow...

Great game if you love the Napoleonic Wars. Such a playable game, 1000's of regiments to choose from but be aware it is a Multiplayer game only. Althought you can do Single Player Battles. Also if you want to improve the game it can be easy to mod and there are tons of mods already out there.

a nice addition to the mount and blade warband warband game.

you can choose to fight for the UK, France, Russia, Austria and Prussia

it's always fun to play just the normal match modes where everything depends on your aim and some luck.

the Jailbreak version in this game can be one big cluster♥♥♥♥ at sometimes thought

This downloadable content is absolutely amazing - there's no doubt about it. Not only are there guns, but there are unique classes and countries to fight as. In this downloadable content, there are muskets, rifles, cavalry muskets, a whole bunch of different swords and admin weapons. The admin weapons include the Ban Hammer (if a non-admin is hit, they are banned for 30 minutes from the server - however if an admin is hit, they just die. This is a one hit kill melee weapon), the shotgun (fast reload and very powerful shots) and the Admin Grenades - and yes, you guessed it. The grenades kill a bunch of people in one go if the people are in it's killing range. In addition, there are also Admin Horses which can only be killed with Admin Weapons and are super fast.

One thing that I really enjoy about this game is the modifications you can get for it. The downloadable content is basically a mod by itself, but these mods that I'm talking about are modding... the mod. Pretty awesome, right? So anyways, there are mods that can be found on the Flying Squirrel Entertainment Forums, and they are absolutely amazing. The mods range from character class skins for different countries, flag selection skins, weapon skins, sound mods, animation mods - there are so many different mods, you really have to see for yourself. One mod that is extremely amazing is the NW Enhancement Mod; this mod changes textures, sounds, skins - the lot! Oh, and did I mention that you can get CUSTOM CROSSHAIRS? Now that... is amazing.
FSE Forums - Enhancement Mod: http://www.fsegames.eu/forum/index.php?topic=9907.0

Next up, I'm going to tell you about regiments. Almost everyone who plays this game is in what we call regiments. Just like the original Mount & Blade: Warband, a regiment is very much like a clan and the base game also includes them. What makes the gameplay in this DLC with regiments amazing though, is the battles that involve hundreds of people. Imagine this: there are hundreds of weapons, perhaps a hundred weapons or more per team. The regiments all have to refer to formations. Line Infantry have to line up to shoot, Riflemen have to spread out, and Lights have to have a couple men's spacing between them in a line in order to fire at their targets. THIS is why the DLC is so great. It's completely different to the base game!

In addition, these regiments are sometimes more than regiments - they are communities. They are friends that play other games with each other as well as this game. By playing this game, YOU can have a special bond with other gamers. This game is a very fun game, I can tell you from many hours experience. I've been in a whole range of regiments and have pretty much experienced this game like no other. This game does, I believe, require you to be in a regiment, for you will miss out on SO MUCH FUN. If you don't believe me, check my YouTube uploads - I have some funny moments compilations up there.

This game does have a mod - I think - to have a campaign mode, however I haven't played that at all. That's something you can look into for yourself. I believe this game could be better with an official campaign update to the game, but that's just my thoughts on the game. I would recommend this game to anybody who would like to try something new - this game really is a whole new experience. Also, another good thing is that this game can EDUCATE you on some Napoleonic times strategies and soldier rank names, and weapons, etc. It really is an amazing game. :)

My second or third match ever.

There was an artillery breach on the fort walls.

The enemy was shooting everything that went through.

Allies were hesitating to go in.

I had a drum.

Started playing and walked calmly into the breach.

Everyone follows me, guns ablaze and bayonets fixed.

Some guy comments on chat: "this drummer is really an inspiration, standing his ground and playing amidst all the bullets"

Everyone on my team gets murdered around me.

I'm the only one left, still playing the drums in a corner.

An enemy flautist joins me on the concert at the corner.

We played for two minutes while everyone murdered each other around us.

We died at the end.

-10/10 Go buy this game, now.

I have put in, at this moment in time, 3,800 hours into this game. If that alone does not speak for how great of a game this is, then I can bring up a few points. Firstly, this game has THE best combat system in any game. The closest game I can think of (which still falls short) would be Chivalry. This game and most importantly, the Napleonic Wars DLC, rids us of pay to win or leveling up to get better weapons so you can make up for your poor skill. The time you put in pays you back by learning new tricks to get past the 2-4 directional attacks and blocks of your enemies. The skills you possess are direct reflections of how much effort you put into it. Secondly, the community is great, regiments (clans for those not in the know) are all over and meet together in events or linebattles as well as facing off against each other in 1v1s to see which regiment is superior in shooting, melee, tactics and teamwork with your fellow reg members. One event you may fight alongside another regiment where you work together to defeat the other team made up of many regiments themselves. While in the next you are opposed to each other and must fight those you relied on in the last event. And if regiments aren't for you then the pub life is ok too, there are many servers where all players are welcomed to fight it out in melee only servers, duels, battles and sieges, of just a few gamemodes to name. There is much to do and many people to meet from all over the globe. I hope this helps you in deciding whether to purchase this game or not, I have been meaning to make a review, but after all the time I spent in it, I didn't think my words would do it justice. Overall, I highly recommend this game above everything else and the Napoleonic Wars DLC is a must.

Without doubt the most brutal combat experience you can ask for, The cannon demolishes the wall and you and your men charge the smoke filled breach, warcalls and musket fire drown out all other sound, you look a man in the white of his eyes and thrust your bayonet wildly in his direction. And then you die bloody and forgotten on the battlefield.

its like living out "the trooper" 10/10
