This game was what really got me into pc gaming. I'd spent many hours playing games on console, but nothing like this. The absolute freedom and learning to be humble in picking my fights and enemies sucked me in to this game. Sure I wanted to tell the king of Vaegers to ♥♥♥♥ off and that this was my land, but i couldnt, I had to work to try and obtain even an ounce of what he had.
You work for everything you want in this game, and you work hard. But damn is it satisfying when you get it. If you are into a uniquely open world style game with 3rd person combat, as well as a small army to amass and multiple kingdoms to work for and eventually overthrow (if you wish) then this is your game series. It will give you almost every single facet of choice in what you do as long as you put in the time needed to obtain those goals.
As of this review the games in this series don't have amazing next gen graphics by any means and the combat animations aren't going to blow your mind in any way. The honest truth is that the gameplay is so well done that you wont even know/care about either of those things (unless that is all you're looking for).
It's hard to put into words how much you can do in this game series and how much you may appreciate it if you give it a run. But I guarantee if you're looking for the most bang for your buck you'd have to try really hard not to get your moneys worth from any of the mount and blade games, including this one! :)
Please feel free to upvote this if you feel the same way! I'd love for more people to enjoy these games with us!
(Note: this review applies to all of the current Mount and Blade Games, with the latter, especially Warband, being superior.) )
