Most people do not like With Fire & Sword. I see why this is true. The guns often one shot, the single player is often more based on caravan running than fighting, and it's in general a pain in the ♥♥♥. The only way to get any action is to fight a nation, as there are too many patrols in the game for bandits. However, the customization of mercenaries and the actual fighting is TONS of fun. If you can wade through all of the boring ♥♥♥ start of the game, you will find glory. I had fun with this game, but I reccomend simply getting Warband with Napoleanic wars, unless you REALLY want singleplayer with guns. 8/10

Aye, over thousand hours have been sunk in Mount & Blade With Fire and Sword.
And why I've sunk so many hours in this game, you may ask,
The answer is: because I really love the time period of this game and I find it most interesting part of history.

But let me tell you what the game is:
The game is basically reskin of Warband with muskets with the singleplayer which is a sniper simulator in a nutshell.
Multiplayer is full of pike-spammers (is that even a real term?), badmins, musket snipers, horsearchers who can headshot you miles away and stupidly fast infantry (like Crimea and Cossacks) who can almost outrun a horse.

I have very negative thoughts of this game and only good thing is the time period of game.

Perhaps this is bit harsh judgment but buy this game if you are masochist, perhaps then you will find this game fun.

Edit: review updated with more explanatory content and (hopefully) better grammar.

Для бОльшей аутентичности очень советую поставить WFaS Enhanced mod, игра без него смотрится далеко не так аутентично. Хотя сама по себе она целиком оправдала возложенные на серию надежды: Графика лучше, геймплей бодрее, система взаимоотношений НПС и персонажа теперь нечто большее, чем то убожество, что было в первом M&B. Я очень удивлён что игра стоит дешевле других частей, но это уже причуды разработчиков. Поскольку эта игра может считаться одной из фундаментальных творений игровой индустрии на то время, ставлю ей 9/10, да и то лишь за изредка встречающиеся баги, связанные с текстурами.

There is not a lot of games if any like this. it has battles that you can take part in battles between hundereds of troops, then eventually become king if you wish. this game is so good, i feel bad for buying the collection for 8$ on bundlestars. i have zero complaints with this game, its simply perfect.

Awesome combat system and immersive world. Even though based on a fictional novel it feels historically relevant as you battle in the name of your homeland.

Highly Recommended.

It's an awesome game if you like sword-fighting, or firing bows. Or if you just want a medival game full of both sword and bow action. So yes, if you like medival games, this is one of the good ones out there. I totaly recomend it!

Classic Firearm weapons and 17th century war description and unuseless armor
If you play this game now you will see how quickly single person die.
전작 마운트 앤 블레이드에서 뭔가 허전했던 무기를 추가한 느낌 입니다. 총기도 사실적으로 묘사가 잘되어있고 이시대에 갑옷이 얼마나 약한지 보여줍니다. 다만 상위버전임에도 불과하고 그래픽이나 버그수정을 개선안한점은 이회사의 단점이라 할수 있겠습니다.

This is a game that doesn't need to exist. It's essentially a Warband mod, and honestly, even for that it isn't even the best warband mod I've seen. Hell, its not even the best warband mod that the developer sells (that would be Napoleonic Wars by the way). Just buy Warband, and if you've already played it to death, go download Brytenwalda for it. You'll enjoy yourself a hundred times more than playing this.

With Fire & Sword is a version of the game Mount & Blade, the game that claims to be a mix of a role play game and a wargame. The most obvious changes are the replacement of crossbows with firearms, a new map and the 16th/17th century setting. This is the time that warfare gradually changed from melee based to firearm based.
(A side note: the setting actually mixes aspects of the 16 century setting with that of the 17th century. The halbediers belong more to the former century and the musketeers/cavalry more to the latter.)
There some other changes. There seem to be more quests and the recruitment system has been overhauled. However, at the core the game is the same and as such has the same problems as the old game, such as a rudimentary battlefield mechanism, a nonexistent storyline, a simplistic dialogue tree, superficial boring personalities and tedious repetitive battles of which there are way too many. And these problems are now compounded by the introduction of firearms.
With muskets you can kill an adversary from the other side of the map and what is more.. he can do the same. In fact the ai is actually better at shooting because it isn't bothered by the fact that from a distance avatars are so small that you can't make them out right.
My first half hour was spend being shot to pieces. The only way to escape that fate is by moving in an unpredictable pattern so the enemy can't take aim properly. In the meantime you either have to try and kill them with your own firearm(while moving about in a random way!) or with your sidearm. Battles turn therefore into tedious hit and run activities in which standing still is an invite to be killed on the spot.
The milita that you can recruit at the start is woefully inept to deal with anything better than looters and once you have enough of them to actually have a chance to win a fight, your army is so slow that you can't catch deserters, brigands and such because they are faster than you. So you either have to fight enemies who are superior to your inept troops.. or hope to corner a band of ruffians,which involves you in chasing them across the map hoping you won't loose sight of them when the night sets in or when they run into a wooded area.
In fact the best thing to do is not to recruit any militia or infantry but to go from town to town to find and hire mercenary cavalry or heroes so you can overtake your enemies or have a chance to runaway from them when they are too strong.
In any event the game seems to promise to become a protracted boring game, like the basic game was, but now you can use firearms and play on a map that represents eastern europe.
The game is neither a good role play game nor a good wargame, because it doesn't implement either aspect well and it amazes me that people actually consider this game to be good.
But I guess tastes differ..
