Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord's Archery And Close Combat Gameplay
Positive: 16 out of 20
Mixed: 4 out of 20
Negative: 0 out of 20
May 12, 2020Overall Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is a great game. It’s a case of if it’s not broke, don’t fix it, but it’s been improved on with some beautiful graphics and refining of basic gameplay. TaleWorlds continues to polish it with patches and listen to their community about it. This is hands down one of the best games that let you charge with your cavalry archers while you charge ahead with your lance to end banditry in the area and everything in between.
Nov 23, 2022Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is very much a superior sequel in so many ways. It’s still a bit of a brick wall to get past in terms of understanding its finer points, but keep hammering away and you will find them.
Dec 31, 2022Mount & Blade 2 transports us into an endless chaotic world full of events, battles and amazing adventures. At times it feels like a victim of its own complexity — some of the game's intricate systems don’t mesh together or never work as advertised, the economy is flawed, there’s a frightening dearth of conventions… Yet this elaborate medieval world will eat up at least a hundred hours out of your life.
Oct 31, 2022Slightly or greatly improved in most areas, still lacking in a few others when compared to Warband and its essential mods, Bannerlord is an altogether updated version of the Mount & Blade series' addictive gameplay and the undisputed king of Sandbox RPGs.
Nov 2, 2022Mount & Blade II Bannerlord is a perfected version of a medieval sandbox game concept where you alternate between territory conquest, large-scale battles and the progression of your character and your kingdom. The few AI wanderings and the repetitiveness of the quests and dialogues do not detract from this exhilarating sandbox where your story is written as you make decisions and take actions.
Oct 30, 2022Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord takes you to the Calradia and then makes you drink wine from someone's skull. Good game but still has the potential to be better. I can't wait to see it.
Nov 15, 2022Though Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord provides a fun outlet with its battles and the strategies you can employ within them, everything else is lacking in comparison. You might get a solid 5-10 hours of enjoyment out of the campaign before you it dawns on you that there’s not much else to discover but a disappointing realisation.

Feb 19, 2023Warband'ın üzerine büyük eklemeler yapılmış. Oyunun kendi alanında tek örneği yok. benzersiz bir deneyim sunuyor.
Oct 30, 2022Mount & Blade is a one-of-a-kind series – an incredible blend of RPG, strategy and action set in a vast medieval setting that you can loseMount & Blade is a one-of-a-kind series – an incredible blend of RPG, strategy and action set in a vast medieval setting that you can lose yourself in for hundreds of hours – and Bannerlord absolutely takes it to the next level.
The game's predecessor, Warband, is one of my all-time favourite games, and Bannerlord improves on it in almost every way. The graphics are fantastic, family, clan and kingdom management is far deeper, the roleplaying system now includes more skills and hundreds of perks, and alternative professions like trading and blacksmithing add much needed activities beyond battling.
But it is the battles that are the clear highlight for me. There's something special about playing the role of a lone soldier (or Lord, or even King) on a huge battlefield with potentially hundreds of combatants on each side. The atmosphere is incredible, and there are so many memorable moments that have stuck with me – the first time I heard the distant rumble of enemy cavalry, watching helplessly as a trebuchet projectile arced its way towards me and my soldiers, flanking the enemy's charging infantry with a carefully placed and well timed cavalary charge, finding the enemy King in the middle of a battle and slicing him down, and so many more.
There's just so much potential for emergent stories within each and every battle, and it's an experience completely unique to the Mount & Blade series.
Finally, and perhaps most promisingly, is the modding scene. Bannerlord is already the 11th most popular game on Nexus Mods, and 150 mods have been added or updated in the first 5 days since release. Small features that people complain about being missing from Warband, like feasts, duelling and deeper companion back stories, have all already been added by modders.
Like Warband (and Skyrim for that matter) before it, it's mods that will take Bannerlord from being a great game to an all-time favourite that I keep coming back to again and again for the next decade.… Expand

I don'tMount and Blade Bannerlord 2 is probably the best medieval game of its kind. The mods are very annoying and can be a problem at times. I don't think it should exist in such a game. For example a mod,
a subsequent way in which a man can be dismembered during the battle, or that there is a possibility that a part of his body will be cut off during the battle, in my opinion such a thing should be present in the game itself! But all in all, all praise for the game and
TaleWorlds Entertainment, I'm a big fan and I expect some dlc or even a third part of the game to be even better than the current one!… Expand
Nov 2, 2022It's 10 for the first 10 hours. Then it's just an annoying grindfest for hours and hours. You need to spend long hours to become somethingIt's 10 for the first 10 hours. Then it's just an annoying grindfest for hours and hours. You need to spend long hours to become something meaningful in the game, even if you succeed to complete this grinding, you will end up doing same thing over and over but in different shape. Nothing in this game feels anywhere near being finished. It feels like it pushes hard to be an RPG, but fails miserably. The game simply lack of any depth and everything in that fictional world is pretty much bland and uninteresting. For a text based RPG, even the story and dialogues are basic, as if it's written by a mod developer. And oh, mods. Without mods, this game would be a bigger disappointment than Cyberpunk 2077… Expand
Feb 13, 2023The TaleWorlds team has deserted multiplayer development and left us with a barren and soulless experience. A game that has taken roughly 12The TaleWorlds team has deserted multiplayer development and left us with a barren and soulless experience. A game that has taken roughly 12 years to release as an "improvement" upon warband. This is pure lies and not true. Warband was leagues beyond bannerlord, it had better combat, better equipment selection and better gamemodes. In fact, the game is new and multiplayer is mostly dead. The only content that exists is multiplayer mods, those are made by reverse engineering code that TaleWorlds hasn't released for public use. it took almost 3 years for us to get custom servers so we could host. This game is not "new", it just released but it's been in early access for better part of 3 years. We were invited to alpha test the game and the developers flat out told us that things were not changing and this is the direction upper management had chosen to go. I am deeply disappointed in this game.… Expand
