Mount & Blade n’a pas attendu Warband pour être un grand jeu, mais une chose est sûre : avec cette extension stand-alone très réussie, il devrait marquer durablement les esprits. Finalement, peu importent les améliorations d’un rendu visuel dont beaucoup de joueurs avaient réussi à s’accommoder. Mais les nombreux petits ajouts dont s’enrichit le gameplay (l’arrivée d’une nouvelle faction, la possibilité de courtiser une dame ou de prétendre au trône...) renouvellent suffisamment l’expérience en attendant l’arrivée des premiers gros mods. Qui plus est, l’option multijoueur, tout aussi classique soit-elle, est une vraie bonne surprise car elle se révèle particulièrement accrocheuse. Il faut avoir vécu des batailles épiques opposant des dizaines de joueurs pour le comprendre. Pour moins de 30 euros, c’est donc la promesse de nombreuses heures de plaisir, sans compter celui – non négligeable – de soutenir un petit studio indépendant qui le mérite.

Mount & Blade: Warband may not have a carefully guided plot or even reasonably attractive graphics, but it recreates the sensation of living in a medieval world like few other games by allowing freedom to decide your own approach to carving out your destiny in a dynamic world of rapidly changing alliances. Controls are awkward at best, making it tough to appreciate how good the combat is, but there's a lot of fun here, especially in the eight multiplayer modes for up to 32 players. As a veteran of the PC version, which I love, I feel bad not being able to recommend the console version more highly, but this port doesn’t fully allow Mount & Blade’s charm to shine through.

Mount & Blade: Warband features some innovative ideas that many other games in the genre haven't explored. The focus on the political nature of warring countries as well as the actual combat gives players multiple ways to play. It is unfortunate that many of these features are left largely unexplained, though, and they require more than a small amount of trial and error to figure out exactly how to proceed. The steep learning curve and low production values may put many people off, although its open-endedness offers players far more replayability than many other games in the genre.
