    Mount & Blade: Warband is one of the most unique experiences available on PS4. It's a game that people will overlook due to the slightly out dated graphics, but for those that do take the plunge, a polished and addictive gem awaits them.

    A true curio in the most literal sense, Mount and Blade: Warband will sharply divide PS4 players according to the premium that they place on aesthetics. For those who can look past such failings though, hundreds upon hundreds of hours of play awaits with a game that combines medieval combat, strategy and role-playing quite unlike any other. Just don’t stare at it eh? It’s rude.

    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.

    Mount & Blade: Warband is an awesome "Middle Age simulator". If you are not afraid of an hard initial approach and love roguelike mechanics, this game could give you a lot of hours of pure fun. The translation on console has however some defects, like the less approachable combat system on pad, the strategic component that is more difficult to use and no mod support.

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

    Bewildering at first, but with time you can discover a surprising amount of depth and originality. Sadly this PS4 version is rather unnecessary with poorly optimised controls and no mod support.

    Better late than never? I disagree. The visuals are outdated and although there are some interesting control schemes at work, the appeal that the pc version generated a few years ago just isn’t there.

Multiplayer is not played as much it should, but this is primarily singleplayer game. Campaign will entertain you for a long time. game mechanics are really good, but could be better. But if you look it's game from 2010, I think it deserves some recognition for what it really is. Masterpiece! Expand

This game looks crappy, almost everythign from combat to controls, horses feels clunky. BUT it is soooo hilarious to play. Having a medieval team death match or laying siege to a castle. I had so many laughs.

    You got several swords, axes, bows, crossbows, hammers, falchions, whatever, twohanders, shields, throwing dars, javelins, polearms. A really nice repertoire.

    If you want to have total chaotic mayhem and even like a little bit of teamkilling (oh yes you can do that en mass there) this is your thing.

    Now excuse me I have to take down horse riders with my doublehanded axe while being only in loinclothes, then I have to kick my teammate of the castle wall.

    I love this game, I've lost so many days and weeks playing it. I first played it on PC years ago and when my PC broke down I was so annoyed II love this game, I've lost so many days and weeks playing it. I first played it on PC years ago and when my PC broke down I was so annoyed I couldn't play it and now it's on PS4. Graphics aren't as good as newer titles but this game is still good. The controls take some getting used to as I am used to playing it on PC but this game is still very fun.

    Side note - Mount and Blade 2 Bannerlord is due out at some point this year and has better graphics and probably gameplay, if you want to get an idea of what this is going to be like then buy Warband and play it. You won't regret it

    There is one severe flaw that makes this game virtually unplayable.

    The directional blocking and swing controls are connected to the R3
    There is one severe flaw that makes this game virtually unplayable.

    The directional blocking and swing controls are connected to the R3 stick which controls the camera. As well, pushing the R3 toggles the camera to a close view which is very sensitive and the camera constantly moves in and out during battle.

    Readjusting the camera while in battle makes the game very frustrating.

    I was so excited when I saw this game on PS4 and bought it the second I got home from work. However I stopped playing due to frustration.

    Please add an option to use the L3 stick for battle and I will start playing this game again.
