Very open ended.
Join lots of factions and team up with lots of people also tons of side quests.
Addition of firearms lends a new tactical dimension to battles.
More involved historical campaign.
Financial and trade caravan tweaks make it easier to earn money.
Great team deathmatch multiplayer.
Often outnumbered in battle and it takes a while to get into.
Guns tone down the pure mayhem of battles.

The introduction of guns proves to be a largely entertaining one, and the new multiplayer maps and mode are useful additions too. However, With Fire and Sword suffers from some issues with the balance of gameplay, and also drops some of the good stuff...60

I won't blame you if you've gotten this far without having heard of Mount & Blade. It's like the independent game for those sick of "mainstream" independent games, and while the franchise has been around for years, its simplistic graphics...70

Mount & Blade is one of my favorite indie games ever and is truly unique as a sandbox action RPG with real-time, large-scale battles. The first one was great, but standalone expansion Warband added so much more, including a fantastic, albeit laggy,...83
