The Game:
Review 1:
Mount & Blade: Warband is an enigma, it’s a game I look at and think “Wow, I really shouldn’t like this as much as I do”. Developed by Taleworlds , it’s a game that tries to emulate a hostile land with warring factions. It’s a game that chucks you in at the deep end and kind of just tells you to get on with it. It’s a game that I completely suck at, and I have no problem with this whatsoever.
Mount & Blade has been around for a few years now; having garnered itself a bit of a cult following on PC the remake of the original title, suitably named Warband, the release expands on what the original Mount & Blade had to offer. Warband offers updated graphics, the ability to start your own faction along with with an entirely new one to play with, and most importantly, multiplayer.
Mount & Blade is about combat: that’s the majority of what’s on offer here. Combat in Warband is pretty unlike anything else I’ve ever played, it’s an incredibly simple yet somehow deep system that takes full advantage of directional swings. Using the right analog stick, you move the camera in the direction you want to swing your sword. It is initially a little bit awkward but once you get the hang of it, it’s a system that starts to feel incredibly intuitive. Unfortunately the actual movement of characters ends up letting the fantastic combat system down. I never really found myself missing the use of a sprint button until I had played Warband, as movement across battlefield can be sluggish unless you’re on a horse. Fortunately, this is easily forgotten during the midst of battle; especially when you’re surrounded by 7-8 raiders trying (and usually succeeding) to stab you in the kidney.


I say they usually succeed, but truth is, they pretty much always succeed. Mount & Blade: Warband is an incredibly difficult game. I’ve played the game for around 15-20 hours, I’ve not made a whole lot of progress, but I’m honestly fine with that. There isn’t a whole lot of progress to be made though, much like any other RPG sandbox, the world is what you make of it. The obvious route for many people is the ability to build an army or faction, and see just how well you can dominate the world. I found myself diving right into the arena fights, winning tournaments and making a name for myself. I think this is where the true magic of Warband’s fairly shallow narrative comes into play, because those that manage to actually role play this game are going to get a lot more out of it. There’s so many potential options for role-play on offer here, you can be a trader, a fighter, a mercenary, a lover and my personal favourite, an archer.
Bows are just one of the many weapons available in the game, but there are also crossbows, two handed swords, lances, maces and pretty much every medieval weapon you can think of. The beauty of Warband’s combat system means that every single weapon feels different, meaning it’s incredibly easy to find yourself specializing in just one or two. I found myself switching between a bow and a two handed sword, making me nimble at a distance but a force to be reckoned with up close. Horseback combat is even pretty good as well, the horse obviously gives players a speed advantage, but it also makes them a much bigger target.
Presentation is probably Warband's biggest problem, the game does look like a slightly prettier version of Elder Scrolls Oblivion. I can see a lot of people instantly dismissing the game for not looking on par with something like The Witcher or Dragon Age; I don’t personally find it an issue, in this day and age of glitzy triple A titles, it’s nice to see developers spend more time on balancing the experience, than buffing the edges to make them shiny.


While the single player may lack a solid narrative or sense of direction, the multiplayer is an absolute blast. Once you’ve gained the confidence needed from playing single player, multiplayer is where you’re going to spend the chunk of your time. Warband offers players the standard selection of modes, from death match to capture the flag; what makes them interesting is just how frenetic the experience is. There’s a class select system at the start of each round that gives you the option to change your load out, although it is possible to switch between deaths as well. Players that perform well are given gold which can be spent on more powerful weapons mid game. From start to finish, each round genuinely feels like a war has taken place. You might be dominating one minute, taking down foes as they come at you, but get complacent and you end up taking a pike to the back of your neck. As frustrating as death is, it never becomes annoying, in multiplayer it often comes down to a mistake you made as a player. This in turn etches you into returning to the battlefield, claiming revenge on your adversary.
Excellent multiplayer aside, the single player does fall very flat. There’s nothing ever really happening, it doesn’t ever feel like there’s a big picture. As awesome as role-playing is, it can only last for so long. AI characters in the world are mostly pretty dull, serving no purpose other than an information point. Missions usually just involve moving from point A to point B, and usually a person dies. The real chunk of the single player will come from how much you want to put into it, and how much you enjoy the concept of building your own army. Having said that, the AI companions are usually pretty terrible, they often go down pretty quickly, although they can be leveled up! You’ll often find yourself asking them to hang back using the command functions, while you go in swinging - thinning the enemy's numbers.

There’s no doubt that Mount & Blade: Warband is one of the most unique experiences available, and I can honestly say it’s one of a kind. It’s like a really terrible looking car, that in fact has a V8 engine beneath the bonnet; it might look rubbish, but it’ll kick your arse all over the shop. Solid combat and addictive multiplayer make it incredibly easy to overlook some of the titles other shortcomings making for one of best medieval combat experiences on PS4….. It’ll might even be better than For Honour...

Review 2:
Graphics aren’t everything - but they’re something. The sandbox-style RPG Mount & Blade: Warband is perhaps best compared to a work like the Bayeux Tapestry, a 230-foot long strip of cloth in northern France detailing one of the landmark events of the European Middle Ages. Background details barely show up at all, the people look two generations removed from Gumby, and the weavers couldn't even keep the lines on the border straight. Yet it's stunning to behold. Some parts look like kindergartners made it, but it has soul and heart, and its images remain better embedded in my memory than some of the busy masterworks of the renaissance.
Mount & Blade: Warband, which is likewise focused on a medieval setting, feels a little like that. It already looked a decade old when it first came out on PC in 2010 (and received a review score of 8.1), and some minor updates to its Xbox One and PlayStation 4 release do little to make it look remotely modern. Slight variations on the same eight or so ugly faces populate its six kingdoms. Knights and peasants alike jank about like robots. Details like grass often vanish when you’re just a few yards away, and if using a game pad the tricky controls sometimes become annoying. And yet for all that, this remains a role-playing game that does a better job of conveying the rags-to-riches journey than a game like Skyrim.

Look past its shabby exterior and you'll find depth, replayability, and ambition that few competitors can match. It doesn't show you the ropes much, aside from a tutorial for its unique combat system (which lets you control your attacks with most weapons from multiple directions), and the way it drops you into its world with scant explanation can be off-putting in this age of carefully orchestrated, world-saving plots told from the perspective of gruff, named protagonists.
Never once does it hint from the outset that you can win your own taxable land through a strategic marriage, nor does it tell you you'll probably have to fight for that potential spouse's favor in a duel. The character-creation screen hints at least suggest you can make your living as a merchant shuttling goods from the deserts of the south to the snows of the north along with fighting, but it says little about the opportunities to herd cattle rather than winning glory of the battlefield.
One of the best parts about Mount & Blade: Warband is that it's not just about you. Few other combat-driven RPGs do such a great job of creating the semblance of a living world. All the while you're out clearing bandits for lords or delivering letters for kings, the diplomatic relations of the surrounding kingdoms are shifting and evolving, possibly making once-comfortable jaunts a risky prospect but a few in-game days later. In contrast to the relatively static land of the Elder Scrolls, this isn't a place where the inhabitants wait around for you to do something before pursuing their own self-interests.

Nor is it a place where a single dude can forge a place for himself in the world with pluck and plot armor alone. You’re not a superhero in this world, so captivity and failure happen often in the early hours, sometimes pulling you from near-greatness to crushing poverty within minutes. The frequent auto-saves for the single save file per character heavily punish mistakes or just bad luck, such as getting overwhelmed by too many enemies in chance encounters as you gallop across the world map. As with many things in life, to survive in this cruel world you're going to need some help. More specifically, you're going to need a war band.
A memorable band of brothers they're not. Warbands are usually little more than trainable troupes of mercenaries and peasants you pick up in towns, and they have little by way of personality. However, keeping them happy with steady pay is almost as tough of a struggle as actually fighting.
Few moments in games lately have thrilled me as when I charged up a ramped siege tower on my horse and impaled the two archers waiting on the ramparts with my spear. Then, whipping out my sword, I rushed down the wall cut down the four players in my way. If Warband had an Over-watch-style Play of the Game highlight, that would have been it. When all of Warband's combat elements come together – multiple weapons, great mounted combat, and sieges – and the controls get out of the way, it works so well that I almost entirely forget that it's as ugly as a bacteria sample from the Blarney Stone.
Mount & Blade: Warband may not have a carefully guided plot or even reasonably attractive graphics, but it recreates the sensation of living in a medieval world like few other games by allowing freedom to decide your own approach to carving out your destiny in a dynamic world of rapidly changing alliances. There's a lot of fun here, especially in the eight multiplayer modes for up to 64 players.

If you fancy playing a first/third person medieval fighting game, with the ability to ride horses, charge into battle, hold siege to castles, marry a noblewoman and have no access to guns then Mount and Blade: Warband is definitely a game I'm sure you'll enjoy. With literally thousands of overwhelmingly positive comments about the game and most reviews I've read paint the game in a very positive light despite its shortcomings, plus the ability to modify the game using hundreds of free mods this is a game well worth adding to your library. You'll find loads of mods (that add loads of extras to the game from different locations, different character models, weapons, castles and so much more) . There are a lot of controls to remember. i personally have a crib card on my second monitor to remind me of the controls. There are several tutorial;s that you can complete to get used to the various weapons and horse riding. Well worth playing if you've not played the game before, or as a reminder if its been a while (like me). Despite its aged graphics I'd give this a 9 out of 10 for fantastic game play and the ability to modify the game.

..................................Moderator comment.....................................

The site has been giving away games since 2006. Since the financial crisis of 2008, many developers ceased to exist, and games became significantly cheaper (for example a typical arcade game used to cost almost $20 before the crisis; now, over 10 years later you can get most arcade games for $6 or less. When you take account of inflation, $6 now is equivalent to around $3-4 back in 2008. Because of this the giveaway of the day team were forced to reduce the number of giveaways to weekends only because there were fewer developers willing to give away their games. Things steadily got worse, to the point it was almost impossible to find developers willing to give away large numbers of their games. Also over the last decade, many other free game sites have sprung up, plus the Indie bundles where you can get games for as little as 90% or more off the usual price have flourished. The present giveaway and others like it were one way the giveaway team could continue to find free games. Technically they are still free giveaways, because they are being given away at no cost except for a few moments of your time.
The name of the site earned a lot of respect and has an excellent standing with all the major search engines. For that reason, the original name of the site has been retained. If they were to change the name of the site now, it would almost certainly be the death knell of this particular project; that has served the community well over the last 12 years, giving away hundreds of thousands of games. Also, we still get free games at the weekends.
