    Graphics are horrible, at least pixel games like terraria can be pretty, this is just ugly.
    Movement in general is a bit slow and clunky. Stay away from the multiplayer! It's horrible. Combat is mediocre. It can get repetitive. (Good things) The ability to lead an army of your own is great. There are several mostly customizable followers. Followers stats can

    (Good things)
    The ability to lead an army of your own is great.
    There are several mostly customizable followers.
    Followers stats can passively affect the rest of your troops, as long as they are in your army.
    Building your own kingdom is fun.
    Fighting in the wars is fun, especially when you have your own kingdom.
    There's some strategy to the combat.
    You get to join your army in first/third person battles, leading them from the battlefield.

    (Side-notes)

    I recommend getting this game on the PC instead if you can, the PC version has mods that make the game much better, the controls, and the multiplayer on PC are also somewhat better.

    I have to be honest, after only a few hours of playing the game, I got bored and lost motivation to keep playing.

    Any player with a taste for a medieval warlord’s life and a tolerance for dated graphics shouldn’t pass up the chance to sink their teeth into Mount and Blade: Warband. Though the PC version may be a bit easier to recommend thanks to the prevalence of mods and a more established community, folks without that option will do just fine on consoles.

    No mod support, lesser multiplayer features, so why? Is this some kind of practice run for Mount & Blade 2?  [Nov 2016]
