If you can get over the lackluster production values, you'll find an incredibly well-paced and engaging game that immerses you into a remarkable world that you can do what you will in. You can be the hero, the villain, or just a guy or gal trying to get by. This is a game for anyone who has a yen for history, the Middle Ages, knights, and medieval warfare.
Mount & Blade really feels more underdeveloped than it does flat-out bad. There are some really promising innovations and design ideas here. It would be intriguing to see what TaleWorlds could do with an Oblivion-sized budget. As it is, though, this RPG provides a lot of sizzle and little steak. It is still worth keeping an eye on, as the developers and an ever-growing mod community are continually enhancing the game. Just don't expect too much right now if you're coming to this indie from more professional games with higher production values.
Mount & Blade's strong RPG elements, in-depth army management aspects, and amazingly addictive combat system balance out its mediocre quests and half-baked sandbox gameplay. The lack of a story is unforgiveable, but it's hard to not concede the game is still worth playing after all - even if only to repeatedly brightly stain your swords with the blood of your fallen enemies.
