Jul 14, 2012This game is simply one of the greatest DLC's I've ever bought for any game in my history of pc and console gaming. This game has good graphics, great sound, great content, and a great organized community. The servers, like any Mount and Blade game can hold up to 200 something people. You probably have a lack of sleep within the first few days of your purchase.… Full Review »
Jun 24, 2012I have played many,many games of many different genres but this is one of rare games that made me feel like part of something part of well organised system..not just random rambo action. If you join a regiment (something like a clan) and attend regiment battles ..you will be amazed like battle recreations of 18th century. this is money best spent on a game in last 2 years and belive me i bought many games… Full Review »
Dec 2, 2012The servers are constantly lagging, melee combat is choppy and imprecise, your gun is inaccurate as hell more than 5 feet away and is faster to scavenge a new weapon than reload, the physics are crude, the maps have no weight and the sound has much to be desired. The maps are so large you will spend half the game running back to where a random bullet killed you, most classes are pointless, and cavalry has the steepest learning curve of any game I have ever played.
You will hate this game when you first play, and the feeling will never go away. As of writing I have played 18 hours during the last week and I love this game with all my heart. The gameplay should be frustrating to the point of being unplayable, but it is the most fun I remember having in a long while. There are so many game modes to choose from and so many ways to play, but you NEED to check it out. The community is wonderful, there are always games and I get totally immersed in the game. Sure, I shout expletives every now and then when I get hit and lose my last (or only) life, but then I'll snap off a quick shot and jump for joy when I score a kill. I once spent an entire siege battle walking towards the enemy walls playing the fife or advancing with my hands up in surrender and died time and time again. I ended up 1-22, and I had an absolute blast.
This game should be the worst design in modern memory, but it is stellar and enjoyable. The first few rounds will be an exercise in patience, but once you get the hang of it, you'll come to love this unique gold-encrusted turd.… Full Review »
