Mount & Blade: Warband

Game review - 6 agree

Some aspects of this game are great, others worse than you might expect.
On one hand, this game has a brilliant combat system. You can swing your sword/axe/mace/whatever in several directions using only one mouse button, while using the other mouse button to block attacks. you can fight from horseback and there are lots of weapons available.
On the other hand, this game has no story at all. there are only a few generated and therefore boring "bring me a cow" "kill that bandit" quests. The AI ist not good either. It's one of the dumbest AI i have ever seen. All that the enemies (and companions) can do is run straight at you, doing some (seemingly) random attacking and blocking. the AI doesnt avoid any obstacles. You are facing a huge army but your cavalry dies because of some tiny tree or rock. they get stuck on it and get slaughtered like sitting ducks. even if there is only one tiny rock on the whole battlefield, you can be sure some cavalry gets stuck on it.
brrb.

Still this is one of my favorite games. There is nothing more satisfying that hitting your opponent in the face with a huge sword, from the back of a speeding horse :D
