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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Its actually challenging! Instead of just spamming rhodoks or nords you actually have to think here. Musketeers are vital to a healthy strong army, but are terrible in combat, infantry is high damage but not very hardy and calvary is EXTREMELY EXSPENSIVE but hold a raw power unseen by any force on earth besides the German Blitzkrieg, but be warned, these arent the Swadian tanks weve come to love, charging a musketeer wall head on is a mistake and you WILL lose men! constantly refresh your reserves. As always make sure to keep your factions kept within your army to one or two as desertion is common. Be warned, you are no longer the god wielding death and mayhem with your heavy armor and two handed weapons as seen in warband, shaking off all but the most powerful blows, in this game you are very, very vulnerable early game and even late game you are still able of being beaten. Armor and weapons are exspensive and money can be hard to come by, COMPLETE FAVORS TO GET MEN. PERIOD. GET DAT TOWN RELATION STAT AS HIGH AS A KITE BECAUSE WITOUT IT YOUR ARMY WILL DWINDLE! AND IF YOU RUN INTO DESERTERS EARLY GAME PAY THEM OFF! THESE ARE NOT THE IDIOTIC NORD AXEMEN THAT YOU CAN RIDE AROUND AND SABRE ONE BY ONE, THESE ARE MEN WITH MUSKETS AND CALVARY OF THEIR OWN THAT CAN AND WILL 1 HIT KILL YOU, YOUR FOLLOWERS, AND EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOUR MEN. MY FIRST PLAYTHROUGH I HAD 20 SCYTHE WIELDERS AND RAN INTO 6 WINGED HUSSARS. NEEDLESS TO SAY I WAS CAPTURED AND MY ARMY DECIMATED. GREAT GAME

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.
