Mount&Blade has just been released, after being in development for awhile; it's a single player RPG thing, quite unique and very fun. You start out randomly in one of the five (six?) countries on the map, and can do almost anything with time. Gain favor of kings to command their armies, or start a war somewhere else just to take over your country's castle, or go around killing villages like a crazed hamster, etc.


I just started playing it a few days ago...Anyone else tried it?

Played it when it was beta, and yes, it kicks arse. I think Scud played it too.

Indeed, and it's a great game and a unquie experience.

I'd happy to see it is finally "released", but given the short supply in retail outlets I think I'll just have to order my copy from Play.com.

It looks decent for being free(?), but if I'm going to be playing single player I'll probably just play Oblivion.

The whole game is free until level 8 and/or 30 in-game days, after that you must purchase a cd-key (to unlock the game) or start a new character with again the level and time limit.

I'm downloading it right now, so I'm hoping it's decent, at the very least.

And Scud, you forgot a third option: uninstall.

But after playing it you'd realise your third option doesn't exist unless you have half a brain and have no tatse in games.

I mean, blimey, Morgorth - Mr gun-shooting FPS man with an attention span of a gnat plays Mount and Blade and it holds his attention, so it is that good.

This is so much better than Oblivion in most ways. Try it .

Anyway, currently I'm a vassal of Nord and have almost a 50 man army of Nord Huscarls (kind of like the teutonic knights of aoe2, but not slow). Soon I'm gonna invade the Kergate Kahnaite and take a few castles. =)

Nords are gh3y. I am uhh... you know, vassal of the green guys, was it? With three villages and two castles, AND commander of the entire military (I even get to order the king where to attack), plus a force of 100 mounted mercs, try to beat me in open terrain combat.

I've played the free version to death since when the full version only cost $5 (and when the game was very very buggy) and I still haven't bought the full version. Perhaps I should, as it's incredibly addictive, entirely enjoyable and also plays great on my ancient pc!

I just downloaded it, I find it virtually impossible to fight from a horse with a lance.

Other than that it is quite fun.

I remember that feeling, but you get better at it. The game has a relatively steep learning curve, but once you get used to it the combat is very intuitive.

I can't fight from a horse at all. Not for lack of trying, either...

Then I pwn you both!
It's taken a lot of practice, but with my latest level 8 character (ie demo cap) I achieved 30 kills thus far, all of which from horseback.

You should buy the game Kor; at high levels you are able to turn up the difficulty and have better AI without getting completely pwned.

Anyway, matty a small fun fact: if you hit just right with a charged up lance from a horse, it'll do 'couched lance' damage, which is quite large.


The latest event in the game for me:
I was being an evil guy and looting villages for money/food, when suddenly two enemy lord's armies came in and found me there. So I had to 3v1 (farmers and swadian knights/sharpshooters). I got pwned.
BTW, game is much more fun if you turn up the AI and damage your units take in options. By default it's all set to easiest.

Guess I'll be the first to say I'm not a fan.
I played the beta a while back and just went back to shotting things with a mp5. Maybe the final version will be better?

If everyone likes it apart from you it might just not be your type of game.

Have you trial-versioners had any experience with siege combat yet? Plenty fun.

Yes, I've had a few tries at that. Sieges are great fun, but they can be very difficult. I once foolishly entered a besieged castle and then had to help defend it. Unfortunately this went entirely pear-shaped as I got knocked out in the first assault and my entire party got killed or captured in the following rounds of combat. I also once got knocked out during an assault: I foolishly picked my own path on the walls to try and outflank the enemy, but when I actually reached them it dawned on me that I was the only survivor. I got into a fight with the enemy lord and was soon surrounded and knocked out.

Come to think of it, all sieges I participated in were lost by my side, but in a previous version of the game I actually won a siege a few times, which is excellent. I really like the fight in the inner keep.

Yeah, I currently am starting my own faction.

I just took Wercheg (a Nord town, biggest one) from the Nords with an army of about 80 nord huscarls and about 40 mixed archers.

I won't be secure for long, though; all of Nord is going to come after me soon and I will probably die. I just garrisoned my whole army in Wercheg and me and my 3 heroes (cracked up on Trainer for quick army making) are going out to recruit s'more.

Do not press the mouse to attack with your lance, build up speed with your horse, and then soon you will see your character couche the lance under his arm....and just line the tip up with an enemy torso and you'll kill them outright!

My tactic in battle is often start mounted with a crossbow and/or some javelins and then dismountand attack the enemey on foot once my ammo is used up. But most of the time, plate armour with a tall shield on my back and armed with a heavy voulge I can take down anything.

....I really need to purchase the full version.
