Such a masterpiece...but i cant play it:
by bombrero on April 11, 2012
Pros: Amzing optimization
Old school,realistic battles
Good combat system
Gives an AMAZING realistic feeling
Cons: No Field Of View settings,which is amazingly unfortunate to those like me that suffer from motion sickness
I cant play it more than 20 minutes without a headache and nausea
If you are propense to this kind of sickness,i dont recomend it to you AT ALL
Summary: This is how a hack and slash sandbox should be,its indeed truly amazing: fluent combat,which is easy to learn but difficult to master,army commanding,raids,and an ...
Summary: This is how a hack and slash sandbox should be,its indeed truly amazing: fluent combat,which is easy to learn but difficult to master,army commanding,raids,and an amazing inmersion and realistic feeling.
I also love the landscape,which happens to have a very good graphics in my medium-low pc,
But if you suffer from myopia (which raises up the probability of having motion sickness in short field of views like the one of this game),or you are propense to motion sickness,DO NOT BUY THIS GAME,since theres no fix for the FOV...And it's really a pity
Difficult to master, phenomenal to play

Pros: Satisfying to play
Hours of fun
A real journey
Cons: Not enough help, or maybe thats just because I played it with the difficulty cranked up to 100% without tutorials to guide me =)

Summary: Its really hard to describe the feeling you get when you crush an opposing army while raiding their capitol city; it's just something you need to experience for yourself to actually know how fun the combat, AI relations, and realm can be. That said, when your storming said castle and you get absolutely destroyed then drug through the dirt, striped of inventory and army, it sucks hard. If you can get past that though, M&BW is a superb game and well worth the 20-30 bucks US$.

Pros: Good graphics, good sounds, a game where the limit is your imagination. Very realistic within the parameters of keyboard and mouse.
Cons: Personally I don't like having to log on to internet to install, but hey, no biggie.
Summary: Turrible huh, as the previous review said. Mmmmm.
I didn't find that. I found the graphics to be perfectly acceptable (or is that exseptible). In some cases hugely pretty. ...
Summary: Turrible huh, as the previous review said. Mmmmm.
I didn't find that. I found the graphics to be perfectly acceptable (or is that exseptible). In some cases hugely pretty. Is it an easy game? No, not at all, in fact it is really challenging (thank God), staying on a horse and shooting an arrow into a target takes practice and real skill, as does sticking a lance in something. This is a game to which you need apply yourself, but if your one of the guys or gals who like the kind of game where "in this area we slaughter 2000 goblins, then in the next area we slaughter 3000 spiders" then stay away.
The combat system is so much more than click and bash, there are multiple options which are eminently mouse friendly and there is a sense of realism which is absent from most RPGs.
And there is no magic, no fireballs from the sky, no special powers, just good old fashioned hard combat.
Summary? If you know what "warband" means, if you can read and write, if PC gaming for you needs to be challenging, interesting and sheer fun, rush out and buy it. If however PC gaming is just mental chewing gum to fill hours that would be otherwise spent gazing myopically into the void, then stay well away.
A good game for it's audience, especially for the price
by Saishuuheiki on April 8, 2010
Pros: Intense combat which is easy to start, difficult to master. Many things to do in the open-ended single player. Generally good system and game modes for multiplayer. A good mix between role-playing game and first person shooter (albeit medieval)
Cons: Graphics are nothing special. Single player has many problems on release, but patches are being put out
Summary: A very nice improvement over the original Mount and Blade. While you could argue it's what Mount and Blade should have been, with it's included multiplayer, given the ...
Summary: A very nice improvement over the original Mount and Blade. While you could argue it's what Mount and Blade should have been, with it's included multiplayer, given the price of both being half that of a normal game it's not as if prices are unfair. If you don't own the original, you should just buy Warband as there is little reason to own the first since this is an all-around improvement. While some will complain that the game is unforgiving for new players in the multiplayer combat, you can't ask other people to go easy on you. You can simply stick to games with fast respawn like team-deathmatch where it matters little when you die, allowing you to get practical experience. This combined with a good forum community can get you up to speed quickly.
While the graphics are nothing special and the camera position can seem odd, you can always switch it back to first-person perspective if you find it too disorienting.
This isn't the type of game you buy for next-generation graphics or superb special effects anyways: This is medieval combat, it's all about the blades (and occasional hammer)
Strange & hard at first, addictive for hours.. months.
by eholbrook on April 7, 2010
Pros: The totally open-ended. Do what you want. No script to follow. The vast array of weapons, ways to do battle, types of soldiers you can lead (or fight) and castles you can storm and take over.
Cons: Takes awhile to get your character up to speed, able to shoot accurately, ride a good horse, get good weapons and lead a decent amount of fighters. Unless this turns you off in the first day or two, this is perhaps more of a good than bad.
Summary: Alot of people complain about the graphics. The game is not about the graphics exactly. Or they complain it's too hard. It is hard. skills build up slowly, you ...
Summary: Alot of people complain about the graphics. The game is not about the graphics exactly. Or they complain it's too hard. It is hard. skills build up slowly, you can't do much for the first few days of playing this game except roam around fighting wandering bandits. Get past all that and you will find a huge huge game that is totally open ended and you can build you character up to leading hundreds of warriors and knights, storming castles, taking over towns and cities, and eventually taking over the entire continent by defeating the other 5 or 6 realms with kings and lords doing the same as you are. I played the original from the day it came out and still have it on my drive today almost 2 years later. Graphics? Just ok. Controls? perfect once you understand them and that they get easier as your character gets better. Bows and Arrows are painfully hard at first but can be one of the deadliest weapons as you keep practicing but yeah it takes weeks (real time, not game time) to get to this point. This is not a scripted, "do this then this and you win" type of game. This is a medieval version of conquer the world city by city and if you think you can do it in 2 hours... 20 hours... 50 hours, you are sadly mistaken and shouldn't buy it.
There is no magic. No spells. No special potions. Just riding, fighting, looting, chasing, conquering, watching hundreds of characters around you in realtime first person 3D all doing the same as you try to defeat the other armies.
I have yet to find a game I've played so often, for so long, month after month. To me, it never gets old. Graphics don't make a good game, re playability does. The only other games in this class of re playability might be civilization and SimCity.This one is right up there in terms of being a classic.
Reminisce of the Old Days

Pros: I like how you can do stuff and kill people and get stuff from them and build stuff and own a village and get stuff and own a castle and lose it and own a kingdom and kill stuff
Cons: Not enough cowbell.

Summary: To judge whether or not a game is good is that you must judge it from a basic human psychological viewpoint. Humans have gone through a phase in history very similar to this, because it attracted us. We enjoyed owning lands, running down peasants with swords, etc.. Those kinds of things were just a lot of fun. Then some pricks came along and said people had feeling and we couldn't have fun anymore. I hated them. Now, we are reduced to having fun killing people on video games, but it's better than doing something productive like donating money to the red cross. I think the human race is screwed anyways because the sun is expanding and we can not support life on other planets because they suck and we're all going to die. So yeah. Bye.

This game is quite honestly turrible.
by boogeyman_returns on April 5, 2010
Pros: Honestly, there is nothing good about this game. Wait, there is two things. I like when i close the program and i liked it when i threw out my computer after playing it.
Cons: The game gave me motion sickness from the awkward view when you are riding a horse. The graphics are PS1 quality and the game would have still looked bad 6 years ago. This game was a scar in my mind, one that will take a long time to heal.
Summary: The bottom line? Don'y buy this game. Why Steam would even accept thIs product for downloading i dont know, The game will make you sick, the combat is trash. ...
Summary: The bottom line? Don'y buy this game. Why Steam would even accept thIs product for downloading i dont know, The game will make you sick, the combat is trash. The camera is completely wrong for this type of game. There is no killcam so i can not se how i died, but it usually is from me being impaled while riding my pony. The game is a shame, a mockery if you will if you will, upon the gaming industry, Long have we tried to bring ourselves into the mainstream forms of media. The medium does not need a game like Mount & Blade: Warband to hold it back. What the hell is a warband anyway?
