Mount and Blade: Warband is the first sequel for the action role-playing video game Mount and Blade. First announced in January 2009, the game was developed by TaleWorlds and was published by Paradox Interactive on March 30, 2010. Warband expands on the original game by introducing a sixth faction, increasing the political options, allowing players to start their own faction, and incorporating multiplayer modes. Reveiws of the game were generally favourable, with the addition of multiplayer the most highly praised element.
The game is really fun an addictive but it still looks like an alpha. Most of the games features could do with a lot of polishing, specifically dumb AI and horrible siege battles. Multiplayer could also use a few improvements, since at the moment it doesnt take advantage of the games medieval setting (there is no command structure, use of tactical play isnt encouraged, etc.).Overall this could be a really great game and I hope TaleWorlds keep working on it.
