If all you had to do was fight, Mount & Blade might have been a winner. TaleWorlds Entertainment has come up with one of the most innovative and user-friendly re-creations of combat ever seen in a first/third-person RPG, with exciting battles on foot,...

Mount & Blade Review

 

Owing to the lack of an overarching storyline, Mount & Blade is a game that's difficult to get into at first. If you can get past the growing pains, however, it offers a compelling, dynamic world that you are free to explore at your leisure and a...

A dynamic world that changes and evolves both because of and in spite of any actions you take in the game. Absolutely the best horse-mounted combat I've seen in a game. Building an army, pledging yourself to a liege lord, and laying siege to castles is...

The dated graphics are going to turn some people off. The lack of a story or any sense of clear direction at the beginning of the game will also lose some people. There are still some bugs that cause the game to crash

Where a lot of games start out very broad in scope, it's often not very long before you realize the pool is only a foot deep. Conversely, this game's open-ended model may feel shallow at first, but the longer you play it the more the game world opens...

Role Playing Games are my favorite genre by far. Unfortunately, RPG's have long been tainted with magic and occult references, thus making it hard to find a good game to whole heartedly recommend.

Paradox Interactive was cool enough to provide us with three games for review lately, and having enjoyed space combat with Dark Horizon and the conclusion to an eerie adventure in Penumbra: Requiem, it was time to mount up and ride into an open world...

While the editor's review brings some good points in, it doesn't seem like he played the game for very long. He doesn't describe battles at all, and his main concern was with the townspeople not responding to attacks. I don't think he became a vassal,...

The new RPG from Paradox and independent developer Talewords is a different take on the same old medieval warfare scene.

Mount & Blade is a bit of a bare bones medieval combat simulation that shines in the gameplay department. Basic graphics and lack of depth hold the title back, but there is no denying that the gameplay is where the meat and bones are at and I can see a...

TaleWorlds Entertainment's "Mount & Blade" brings PC gamers the most realistic cavalry combat ever to be seen, but there's not much else to see here.

Amazing soundtrack ; Sound effects are top notch ; Combat is intuitive and easy to learn ; User interface is simple ; Character customization is quite in-depth ; Completely open world

No story at all ; Terrible visual presentation ; Boring and pointless army system ; No real end to the game ; Quests are all extremely boring ; Landscapes are far too bland ; Price is far too high

Hardcore realistic Medieval fans aside, this game should be avoided like a crazy ex-girlfriend.

Indie gaming is very appealing. Thanks to development tools becoming more accessible and resources such as the Internet, independent developers all over the world are creating and distributing wonderful video games to satiate the appetites of gamers...

My final verdict is that I obviously did not enjoy Mount & Blade. It was too sandboxy for my tastes (I prefer more story driven RPGs), I wasn't into the combat, and I just generally found the game boring and sometimes needlessly frustrating. I can...

You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it play poker

Good horse-riding ; Some addictive RPG elements ; Adequate graphics

Combat is hit-and-miss ; Generic medieval world ; Still feels like freeware

While the horse handles rather well, the heralded mounted combat is patchy. The archery is OK but largely ineffective with large numbers of enemies, and the sword/knife/axe hits are annoyingly random in their effectiveness (which applies to on-foot...

Mount & Blade - PC Game Preview

 

Thundering hooves, a flashing lance, and nearly a ton of armored man and beast, skewering and scattering a nearly helpless unit of light footmen. Think Braveheart. Think El Cid. Think Kingdom of Heaven. But this time, think that you lead the armored...
