"Still the same excellent game with many tweeks"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Building on the original title the ceators have made Mount and Blade Warband a much more responsive enviroment. There are factions within factions and every action you make has consequenses. A fantastic revamp and upgrade on the original, without losing any of its charm. So many areas have been attended too including the trade system, weapons, armour, A.I in general is just a lot better.

Multiplayer – nice addition. I have found that there are few nz servers/players on Steam and when you do play inline it is ridiculously hard – Timing is everything and is different from the single player game. I have found it not uncommon for one person to have 40 kills to one death. Hacking comes to mind but it is probably because the person has spent 100's of hours playing nothing but Warband multiplayer.

Overall the new features alone are reason enough to buy the game and the multi player aspect is a good system if you have the time to relearn how to fight.

"Geared for Multiplayer"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

M&B Warband expands on the original by adding a new faction to its sandbox campaign, the Sarranid Empire (Based on the various Arab Caliphates of the middle ages).

Warband also adds new items and maps, while improving the graphics from the original. Most of the tweaks however are aimed at the new multiplayer mode with the new control options in singleplayer only useful as practice for the multiplayer.

That said Mount and Blade Warband is an excellent game that I would recommend to anyone looking for a Medieval fix.

"Awesome"
4 stars"

I keep getting addicted to this game, what it lacks in graphics and voice acting it makes up with great gameplay and the new multiplayer adds more value to the package that the original did not have, my only problem is its exactly the same game as before, just with a new faction and a revised map and a multiplayer that I wasn't sure about first since in the trailers it sounded just like the castle sieges which wasn't my strong suit, but after playing it for a few hours it really is fun aswell.
