Additionally, muskets and pistols can now be used as sidearms in hand-to-hand combat to quickly drop your foes.

As a veteran of "The Deluge" M&B: Warband mod-,
-I can safely say that this game, which should
have been released as DLC for Warband as it brings
NOTHING new to the table-, not only pales in comparison
with [The Deluge] mod, but by doing so, the devs failed to achieve
what they had set out to.

I though this was going to be a good game, better than Warband. Guess what? It wasn't. It's exactly like M&B:W but with a smaller troop recruitment, Want to play as a Warlord that conquers land? Too bad. This game takes away the feel that you can conquer every single village,town,fortress,castle, and Capital. This is a good game overall(Graphics, Storyline ETC.) but the gameplay isn't that good, I though it would be like M&B:W but with cannons. It wasn't. (I also got it for 75% off, thank God I didn't get it at full price.)

Mediocre compared to Warband, feels unfinished. I would only really recommend if you have a fetish for muzzle loading weapons and people standing in rows, in which case it can be a lot of fun.

It's honestly almost the same game as warband, don't get me wrong, I love warband. It's just I'd pretty much rather play warband since they have better mods...

Everytime I get captured, I immediately have to go through at least 20 instances where the group that captured me keeps running into me and I can't go anywhere. So annoying

YEs! this game has everything that made Warband great plus early era guns and cannons! i put off playing it for a while, because i was worried the guns would be too overpowered and sometimes they can be. you can be mid to late game and be a super high level with tons of health and armor and get murdered by a couple stray bullets, but it's not something that's going to happen a lot. especially if you play smart. i think this game requires much more strategy than Warband. in warband, by the time i've level 40 or so, i can wade into a battle and kill 20-50 people on my own and it's much harder to do that in this one because of how much damage guns can do. you also tend to have more casualties during battle and numbers tend to matter more. it's like they took all the good parts about warband and added to it. more quests, a new world, new factions, more and different weapons (including primitive grenades). beyond all that, the various factions have their own storylines which i did not need, but kind of love. playing as the polish will have some different quests from the swedish which are different from the russians which is different from the crimeans. the addition of the story elements add some believability to the various relations between the factions because you learn why they like the factions they like and hate the factions they hate.
if you played warband and like it, you'll most likely enjoy this game too. if you haven't played warband, i recommend getting the mount and blade full collection and playing warband first, then coming to this, because there are some major differences in gameplay. i assure you the addition of guns and bombs adds much more depth and strategy to this game than warband had to it. that's not to say warband was bad or too easy, just that guns make it easier to kill than swords. which we all already knew anyway.

> A Russian Warlord tells me to collect some stuff from Moscow and deliver it to another Russian Warlord

> I go to Poland

> I sell the things for 4000 gold

> I stole 4000 gold from Russia

I now plan to create a huge army, take over Russia and Ukraine and reunite the Soviet Union

Very good game but only if you're into this type of games. It's cheap ♥♥♥ hell both on sale and off sale, right now it's like $1,24 which is a focking joke, even soda pop costs more than this gem. And I'd tell you that it is defintely worth even $20. But enough about it's value. Game has a lot of content as for such game, entertainment is almost endless, for example I've never finished any of main quests but still enjoyed it tremendously. I spend few hundred hours (off Steam) with this and never got bored. I would recommend it especially for people that aren't familiar with XVth, XVIth and XVIIth century Poland, Ukraine, Russia and Crimea - it's a great way to learn more about our culture and history. It might somehow clarify, for not acknowledged, why Crimean Crisis occured, what's going on in the Ukraine and why are these countries so important in present day world.

Graphics - even though I've taken under consideration the fact that is outdated, it still sucked for its times: 4/10 (doesn't matter much if you enjoy the game itself)
Music - stays in the climate of those times and those places: 9/10
Content - enough for such game: 7/10
Gameplay - many times I've had batter things to do (like study to not be a ♥♥♥♥ing failure) but I rather played F&S: 9/10 [disclaimer: difficult to stop playing once you get into it]

Dude just focking play it, it's 1.24 for focks sake

Just Buy it. And feel the power of a weak, inaccurate, and slow to reload gun that make swords a viable option.
