Mount&Blade - With Fire and Sword Review @ Eurogamer

by Dhruin, 2011-05-11 22:31:55

Eurogamer has reviewed With Fire and Sword, finding it too similar to the previous games - but less some attractions - for a score of 6/10:

Despite a fat cache of solid faction-specific missions, the new historically-inspired setting just doesn't seem as colourful or as evocative as the old cod-medieval one. In Warband, when I needed a break from trade or banditry, village-nurturing or mercenary chevauchées, I'd search out the nearest tourney, go a-wooing or, maybe, spar with a few of my merry men. In With Fire & Sword there are no tournaments, no marriages or hands-on troop training. The developer has left them out for reasons of historical accuracy (which is fine) and failed to replace them with interesting substitutes (not fine).
