Любимица. Но заданий можно бы и побольше было и разных. На 10 виндос не работают моды без вылетов. Умерла быстро, но самые лучшие и душевные моды были именно на неё. Красивая, душевная, запоминающаяся. За сделанное детство и тёплые чувства я готов простить ей те мелкие сколы, и просто поставить 10-ку ;)
The interplay between mounted and dismounted soldiers, archers, knights, and the wide array of possible troops and equipment means that Mount & Blade has some of the coolest, most engrossing combat of any RPG ever.
literally the same game as its sequel warband.
(honestly I don't know why their metascores are separated, dino horde for instance is treated the same and changed more.) nothing unique or different about it. warband was an update, basically a great big patch that was sold as a separate game somehow. dont buy both, skip this you'd already have it with the improved warband release.
7/10because warband got 8 from me, warband with mods got 9, nothing gets 10 unless its perfect. I should dock them for selling a content patch as a whole new game(at best it was an expansion, so dlc) and the "mount and blade pack" containing this and warband gleefully gives the impression they aren't the exact same game seems a bit of a ripoff but I liked it too much to justify that actually eating points.
warband is mount and blade with the addition of splitting off to your own side, marriages(both smaller changes than that sounds) and the upgrade of arabs from raiders to a kingdom(even that is kinda meh as an addition, I actually liked the old map without them). and multiplayer. multilayer is the big deal.
don't buy this buy warband. this is just warband without multiplayer.
that said awesome.
This game is pretty good and i find it weird me saying that.
I downloaded the demo at first and after about half an hour i quit it uninstalled it and quite ignorantly just passed it off as a bad game. Something happened to me that doesn't usually happen to me though, i felt this urge to play it again and i decided i would try it again, The second time playing the demo i started to like it, before i knew it i'd wasted 8 hours going on the demo and creating new characters once my time was up (hehe i am not so rich)
I decided if the demo had taken 8 hours of my time, I'll buy it, that was my justification, i did and i'll never regret it. Absolutely brilliant game from what looks terrible in terms of graphics and interface.
The thing is... you can spend hours, training your men, making peasants turn to knights, to take on a HUGE city, so you can have it as your faction, You'd think, after beating the city with an army you'd raised from scratch that you'd be able to have that city. Nope, If you take over territory you get a small chance of owning it, the king of your faction ultimately decides and he usually offers you compensation of 900 Dennars (The Ingame currency), which wouldn't even be able to buy you a new sword, horse or piece of Armour, taking into the account the men you have lost, and the wages you've paid for said men in training you make a considerable loss and you see some other poncy lord sitting in the castle that he had (probably) tried and failed to take for himself.
Now, you may say i ranted a little bit there but it's a core game play mechanic and i think it should have had a little bit more thought put into it.
Oh combat, i have to tell you about this because you use the mouse to control your swings (which direction etc) and i was a little bit unsure of this method, It isn't brilliant but it REALLY isn't as bad as i thought it would be, and with a bit of practice you do in most cases get the sword swinging the way you want too, mounted combat is awesome too, especially with a long weapon it's so fun riding past someone at high speed and then slicing them up before they even get chance to swing, it's so satisfying!!
Graphics i would say aren't bad, I've seen worse and in certain lights the game does actually look really good.
I gave this game a seven because of un-immersive character conversation, bad weapon selection system and the occasional bug.
If your thinking of getting it, play the demo, you'll get a really good idea of what the game is about and how it is played.
Quite disapointing. On paper, it has good user reviews, is an innovative tactical game, and support linux... I jumped in too fast. While i can confirm all those pros, it is not enough to compensate various limitations.
First, the graphics seems as old as the game theme ;) With every option activated, think about an engine like an high res quake 3 (1999), with low poly count, worse lightmaps and a lot more repetitive texture. I'm not usually very judgmental about graphics, and I can play most retro roguelike games or "smartphone 3D" games but M&B fail to provide the minimum imersiveness that i can tolerate for 3D.
Then, the controls and activities are neither newbie-friendly (I could not complete the TUTORIAL without using google), and character combat is clumsy without giving any depth to the gameplay in my humble opinion. I'm not saying it's hard, I like hard tactical games (XCOM...) or TES series action-oriented combat but I dont like them frustrating.
I had unrealistic expectations when I saw the regular price and reviews. The regular price is quite extreme for an indy game with flaws that only medieval combat fanatics will be able to overlook. Any one else will find more value and fun in AAA games on sale or less ambitious but more polished and reasonably priced indy games.
Un "jeu de rôle" (entre grosses guillemets) bricolé par un bande de crevards qui n'avaient aucune idée de qu'ils étaient en train de faire ou de qu'ils voulaient faire... Du coup, on se retrouve avec un merdier affreux qui a bel et bien l'air de n'être jamais sorti de sa phase beta (et de sa bêta attitude).
Tout est fait à l'arrache ici, tout est si mal fait qu'on se demande comment ils ont fait... ni fait ni à faire, ils auraient mieux fait de faire autre chose ! descendre les poubelles par exemple ! ainsi, le combat est injouable, le canasson est tellement con qu'on ne le jouerait même pas comme tocard dans la troisième et graphiquement, ça se traîne quelques générations de ****.
Une daube irrécupérable donc qu'il ne faut certainement pas toucher, même avec un bâton. Une plaisanterie pas drôle, une mauvaise farce qu'il faut vite évacuer en tirant la chasse bien à fond !
