I really can’t stand talking down about videogames. It’s an industry and hobby that I truly love. That said, I can’t overlook all the issues for the console versions of this game. It feels like very little was done to make it a more streamlined console version. From menus, to font size, controls, and more. It looks extremely dated, like something that somehow got shelved in the early 90’s.
For a newcomer, there won’t be much to enjoy in Mount & Blade: Warband‘s console release. Mainly, because of how divisive the game is by itself. If you can overcome the game’s obvious technical limitations and control problems though, you’ll find an impressive western role playing game that emulates the older, more classical games in the genre.
Mount & Blade: Warband is a very niche title that requires a great deal of time invested to actually get to the enjoyable parts. It's also filled with flaws that are hard to overlook, the graphics look horrendously dated, the combat controls are clunky, and there's so much repetition here that it will put off the majority of players. A certain subset of players will adore what Mount & Blade: Warband offers, but those that do will likely enjoy this more on PC.
