Chinese Translation Updated

Hello all, just a little update to let you know that the small update you received was to improve the Chinese Translations for the game, which you can select from the game's config window. Shouldn't affect anything else, so don't worry about it if you're not interested in Chinese :).

Caribbean! is now released!

Hello Mount & Bladers!

Today marks the day that Caribbean! goes on full release. After almost a year of Early Access, Snowbird Game Studios (developers of With Fire and Sword) have worked with your suggestions to bring you this release version! It's a unique project and a very different game from when it was first made playable.

As reflected by the name, this project isn't a TaleWorlds or Mount & Blade game but a project developed by Snowbird Game Studios, using a licensed version of Warband's engine, tailored in areas to the specific needs of the title. Given that, you can expect to see a lot of differences, when compared to games from the Mount & Blade franchise.

Caribbean! is now available to purchase on Steam.

Why would you visit Poland, Ukraine, or Russia to experience slavic culture when you can just play Mount & Blade: With Fire and Sword?
Purchase obscene amounts of vodka or fight the tartar horde, this game has it all!

Tis a good but nuanced game. I could only recommend it to people who really like Mount & Blade and are interested in Polish history. Game has promised patches that never came, the "Black Mace" story quest (Ukraine/Zhaparozhie) is still broken IIRC haven't done it recently. The game is also incredibly imbalanced and the firearms are the worst of it.

The sad part is that it's not the inclusion of the firearms, but rather their mechanics. You can reload a a full-length rifle while galloping on horseback, I'm not even exaggerating sadly.

Like I said good but nuanced game. Only buy if you really like M&B and Polish history.

Mount & Blade: Fire and Sword is the third game from the game series of Mount & Blade. A sandbox game that takes players to control a character in an open world map with multiple major and minor factions.

Those who have played the previous/other games from the same series will know exactly what I am talking. If not, take a look at my Review related to M&B: Warband for a complete knowledge of what the series and its games are about: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198060352365/reviews/


So, I’ll begin my review by writing about the bad aspects of the game which are many...


No character background story:

That lack of such feature before your adventure can even begin, gives you the feeling that you will be playing with a completely random character. Unlike of what happens to all the other previous games in the series, Fire and Sword does not have a custom character background history.

Same engine and mechanics as in the previous game, Warband:

There is absolutely nothing new in Fire and sword that wasn’t been already seen and experienced in M&B: Warband. From the graphics and textures, what changes are that only muskets and matchlock pistols were added as a main weapon in the field of battle.

In few words, this game feels like an average community made mod/expansion, and not an actual game produced from a company who managed just before, to release the best game from its series that defined the whole concept of what a true sandbox game should be.

Even more bugs and errors:

Despite Warband having some issues with some insignificant bugs and errors that could be easily fixed most of the times, in Fire and Sword, not just it has the same bugs and errors but also other more bugs when you wish to do an action, but also in the quests themselves that can ruin your entire gameplay if you are unlucky enough not to create a save file before you accept that quest.

Boring and repetitive:

Even when both games follow the same concept of sandbox with a very similar if not the same gameplay style, the way the campaign map is designed being only made of grassland and more grassland instead of the 4 elements seen in Warband, such as the Desert, Snow, Grassland and Montains.


Unbalanced game:

Despite being interesting at the beginning, once you have invested some time in the game and in your campaign progress, you will realize that the game ends up by making you looting villages, sell items, hire troops and fight.

The players routine in the game to achieve success and power is a never ending repetitive loop.

Now finally, to the good aspects:

Music:

The music in this game is wonderful I must admit, to hear the piano and the violin while you shoot and slain people is very pleasing and mixes perfectly with the time period where the game is based on.

The age of gunpowder:

The addition of firearms and armies based on it in a Mount & Blade game is unique and indeed a surprise to players who enjoy shooting and slashing down opponents!

Conclusion:

I would rate this game a 20 out of 100 or a 1,0 out of 5,0 stars. The same exact graphics and game mechanics as in Warband in a game that could easily contain success, but failed miserably... a huge disappointment.

I honestly love this game, despite the many things that are much worse than Warband. For one, the graphics are a tad worse (not that i care anyway) and personally i find some of the armour in this game to be absolutely hideous, understanding that this is a different culture of course. but lets get to a list, shall we?

Pros:
-Guns!
-Explosives!
-crouching!
-seems to run smoother than Warband
-You can hire and customize mercenaries of your choice
-more indepth caravan system
-fighting feels more challenging, in a good way
-for sieges, there are more options to choose from before commencing the assualt. also you can blow holes in the wall
-this is more of a personal thing, but, different cultures and factions, like Sweden and Poland (although i do love Warband's factions)
-you can have a not-so-fancy-gentlemen's-duel with random drunk tavern guests, (this is where the thrust only swords can come in handy)

Cons:
-Enemy firearms can be OP at low levels
-some weapons are specifically thrust only
-rather boring early game
-the map is rather bland compared to Warband
-the explosives have a limit, if you have 5 bombs and use 5 bombs in one battle, you have to buy another 5 bombs because the other 5 bombs get removed from your inventory
-Modding is more limited, unlike Warband's Module system (however, there is a WFAS enhanced mod that makes the game awesome)


That is about all i can think of right now. If you do get this game, look into the WFAS enhanced mod i mentioned above to make your experience a bit better.

Very Good....

Rating: 8/10
- Gameplay: 8
- Multiplayer: 8
- Campaign: 10
- Learning Curve/Depth: 10
- Community: 8

Great addition to Warband, this DLC allows you to really see the gamplay come out in spades! New factions and weapons are definitly fun!

Fight battles in first person using your horse and sword when you feel lucky and conquer the world as well in the strategy view. This game never seems to stop giving new twists and turns with its great sandbox environment. This game is a lot like sisters, one is always prettier and this one is not that sister (that is NW) but this one has a ton of personality!

- FPS Battles
- Overhead open world conquering
- Strong Character Development
- Strong Team Characters Developed


*Note graphics are dated because the game was released a long while ago but there are modifications available that bring it up to date!

**Quick update 12/27 about the story line, it is a bit flat to start with but then again it is a sandbox game so you are making the story up as you go!

"Mount and Blade With Fire And Sword is so bad" That right there is a lie. This game is great, if you're a singleplayer fan then get this, yes it also has multiplayer but not as superior as Warband's. The singleplayer in this game is amazing that I can't describe it. Yes I have a little hours on it but I used to play warband and this 3 years ago on desura.

9/10

Pros -
-Good singleplayer
-More choices than skyrim (incomming hate)
-Fun
-Endless
-Multiplayer
-Can run on the crappiest of computers

Cons -
-Graphics suck
-Guns are OP
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Rating from me - 9/10*

Props to my good friend RedAlpha for giving me this games as a Christmas gift. Thanks alot, buddy. Fire & Sword, as a standalone expansion to Warband, is almost mechanically identical to it's relative game and has everything from it that makes it good, but there are tweaks and alterations that set it apart from the game enough to justify it as it's own separate title. Not only changing the weapons that the skills constitute and the armor and apparel to go with the new, much more advanced and recent setting than Warband, but to go with that, they added guns and grenades (Hence 'Fire and Sword'.) which is my favorite selling point in this game, because of this, they changed the ranged infantry from Archers to Marksmen, whom you can command to form rows thanks to the new additions to the order-giving system this game has. However, Fire & Sword also shares the two infamous gripes I have with Warband: Frustration with regards to difficulty, and as mentioned in the Warband review, letting a snail win a race to you while you're -riding a horse.- Oh well, just like Warband, this gets a 9/10, an impressive.

okay my review:
Maps 5.5/10.0
Well you might ask me: why so low score? just because they didnt make castles historically accurate, and just a few unique buildings, while the eastern europe was filled of them. Example: my country's capital Vilna (Lithuanian spelling: Vilnius) had a river getting into two pieces, a very steep hill with a great tower on top and walls surrounding. the tower on hill is even today staying there. you could google it too. Trakai, that village nearby, was no worse, it had huge great fort in a island which was in a huge lake, altho what i've seen was a random village with a few houses ingame. The map could've been more accurate.
Combat + Units 8.0/10.0
The game, has great combat, altho sometimes AI gets easily stuck or it forgets to fight and other funny buggy things. sometimes they even bug out so hard, but still its good.
But the units, you could've make a bigger variety of them, because i am pretty sure there was not a lack of unit kinds there. I like the ones that you made, but some are little inaccurate.
Storylines + Quests 7.5/10.0
The Quests from cities are a little boring: if you do much of them, they repeat quickly...
Storylines are good, but sometimes buggy.
Factions 9.5/10
Well they're great, but it would've been more amazing if we wouldve had prussia, ottomans, austrians too!

Overall calculated rating of these things from me is 7.625/10.000

this is a really good game, but if you're a fan of Mount&Blade games don't get this one, get Mount & Blade Warband & Napoleonic Wars first and then get With Fire & Sword if it's in discount.

The only bad things in this game it's that is harda s f#ck cuz' of the ♥♥♥♥ing dudes poppin' yo' ♥♥♥ up.

But still, good story, good gameplay and good graphics.
11/10 ign.

Fire & Sword is like the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ little brother of Warband. The Singleplayer is like watching paint dry even with the additons of should be badass items like grenades. The range of clothing and weapons is dissapointing unless you want to wear the same ♥♥♥♥♥♥ top in various sizes and colours all game. The game is not worth buying just for singleplayer. The only thing that comes close to saving this game is the commander game variant in Multiplayer out of my 120 odd hours about 100 of it was spent in that gamemode, it had a better feel to it than even the commander mode in NW. The smaller squad sizes and abiltiy to choose your troops specifically, gives the gamemode a much more tactical feel and when you loose a man, it hurts, it would actually sadden me when one of my 6 childeren took a bullet to the head.

I will still reccomend the game because of this one gamemode, without it the game wouldnt be worth it. Even with the gamemode I would wait for a sale of the game as paying full price for it is as stupid as the game itself.

Ahh Mount and Blade... this is my first game in Steam. If you like this type of games just buy it without thinking about it! You can make custom battles, campaign, multiplayer and have much fun killing men with different types of weapons (sabers, bows, muskets, something like the fist grenade ever, spears, broadswords, swords...). In campaign you can hire men and conquer the map killing your enemies (almost eveyone) earn money and honor and become the mightiest faction in the game! I highly recommend this game!
