Gosh, I will start this review with one sentence...no, better, one INQUISITION, YOU, YES, YOU, you there sitting on this chair, YOU. WILL. BUY. THIS, GAME. this game it's just...man...it's just the game, I mean it's warband, but with way improved well..."diplomacy" I guess I can put it in this way, and some handy options, as for example you can speak with the elder of a village just clicking with one button, instead of doing all that work to do so as in warband, I mean, don't get me wrong, Warband it's a damn awesome game and i'm not trying to say which is better, but this game as I have said is almost the same as warband...Oh and of course RIFLES and BOMBS

I want to like this game, I really do. But the combat feels so... Unfair, and short. Having played Warband for many hours, this game just didn't feel the same, and mods reflect a general dislike of this game. Something about it makes it feel shorter, and clunkier. This is a game that in my eyes just didn't live up to my expectations. If you want a more balanced combat system, with each class having advantages and disadvantages, then go to Mount and Blade Warband. If you want quick, ranged battles with the battles being dominated primarily by musketmen, then this is the game. If you want a gunpowder multiplayer experience, Mount and Blade Napoleon.

So good! Watered-down crap graphics but the gameplay and combat is incredible! Sword fighting comparable to Dark Souls. You have the ability to have 500+ AI controlled soldiers in your army you build and train, you can give them commands and make them group up into formations! Very strategy based and with the introduction to Firearms it creates infititely more strategy decisions! 8.9/10.

It is a very good expansion to the Mount & Blade series! Although the Napoleonic Wars DLC trumps this one in popularity, it is still worth the money to buy this DLC.

The Multiplayer has very few players (One or two active servers with a few dozen people) and in my opinion is ok compared to Native M&B Warband. However, there is no focus on ranged over hand-to-hand combat as both are used no matter your preference. There's archery, musketry, swords, shields, spears, crossbows, etc., etc.

The part I really like is the Singleplayer campaign, despite it being similar to the other DLCs. I just have a liking to this one in particular over the others for some reason, probably the guns (Since Mount & Blade Vanilla and Native Mount & Blade Warband don't have guns :D)

My rating, With Fire & Sword of course! :P
8.5 out of 10

I honestly do not know why so many people seem to like this game. Graphics could be from 10 years ago, sound is awful, controls are unintuitive and clumsy, NPC's just stand around like statues waiting for some interaction. Quite simply it is a bad game. I only spent £7.99 on this thankfully but to be honest 99p would have been too much.

Warband Is A Lot Better! Even The Original Is More Fun! If You Want Guns Get The Warsword Conquest Beta Mod From Nexus!

Pretty similar to Warband, and still good, and the graphics are a very small amount better. However, I can't seem to get in to it as much as I do Warband..I would say just play Warband, its better than this one, with ♥♥♥♥ tons of mods that can mostly emulate what this game has. I honestly wouldnt buy this game, if you have the money for Warband. If you have the 20$ (or only like 3ish dollars on sale) Buy Warband, It's an excellent game. But this one is still ok, its basically the same concept as Warband, but for some reason I just can't get in to it like I can Warband.
