It perfectly captures the life of a rouge!

Summary: I Love this game! although the graphics are a little dated the game play is PERFECT. Lots of good features like Marrying into a royal family or commanding you group of knights is massive battles!
Summary: WOW the weapons in the game are way too inaccurately portrayed. Those flintlock used to be rather inaccurate (with today's standards), but they were not THAT INACCURATE! You can not even shoot a soldier standing 10 meters away from you. That is not accurate at all. If you do not believe me go and read a few military history papers about the subject (preferably written be real historians, and the more up-to-date ones).
Summary: I don't know why people are giving this game such high reviews. I've been a fan of M&B since it came out, but I hate this one. Half the servers are no shooting allowed, just lame bayonette fighting. Seriously? I cannot fathom why, since this game has the exact same melee mechanics as the original M&B, except that it just has the god awful almost always 1 shotting bayonette, that has terrible physics. The original M&B was a 9/10 for me, it was just missing multiplayer.
Summary: I get on to look at the servers alone, ton of players play it. It replaced the mod that was out called Mount&Musket. Absolutely incredible game! I love it more than Warband! This is a DLC (or as I call it a mod) for Warband. You must have Warband to play this game.
Summary: The servers are constantly lagging, melee combat is choppy and imprecise, your gun is inaccurate as hell more than 5 feet away and is faster to scavenge a new weapon than reload, the physics are crude, the maps have no weight and the sound has much to be desired. The maps are so large you will spend half the game running back to where a random bullet killed you, most classes are pointless, and cavalry has the steepest learning curve of any game I have ever played.
Summary: This game is addicting. When I first got it I played 4-5 hours a day. I'm not even good at it, I get dragged around by bandits 10 per play. The game runs kinda slow on my vista so i have to dull down the graphics all the way to play normaly. They are pretty good when there at normal though. But what I do love about this game is that you can do anything. Its a cross between Skyrim and civalization, and its for a great price (btw its cheaper on steam).
Summary: Despite what it may seem, NW actually feels like a proper expansion rather than a mere re-skin of Warband. Acting more like a self-contained game, Napoleonic feels much more smoother than Warband and creates some epic battles as small groups of soldiers attempt to push their way through gun and cannon-fire to reach besieged castles and forts.
Summary: Previously i said this game was boring, but i simply spoke too soon. Playing public games is very repetetive due to lack of cooperation. Line battles are the real drive of the game, and are endlessly fun. This is a MUST buy.
Summary: This game is simply one of the greatest DLC's I've ever bought for any game in my history of pc and console gaming. This game has good graphics, great sound, great content, and a great organized community. The servers, like any Mount and Blade game can hold up to 200 something people. You probably have a lack of sleep within the first few days of your purchase.
