3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been so much better... 3 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Fire and sword is the third installment in the Mount and Blade series. I've spent countless hours playing the previous two games in particular Mount and Blade Warband. The gamplay in this series is amazing, its a vast sandbox enviroment with fabulous battles. You can fight it out in seiges of towns and castles and there are many many different designs of these which requires variation in tactics for attack and defence. In the previous incarnations you start the game as a poor mercenary on the Continent of Calridia. The continent is broken up into six kingdoms with each fighting for supremecy. You can join one as a mercenary or vassal and in warband you had the ability to become king of your own kingdom and fight it out with the other rulers. You earnt money by betting on yourself in tournaments, by trading goods between towns and cities, or by selling loot taken from the corpses of your adverseries. It would take me far to long to go into the merits of the previous games but they provided me with months of enjoyable gameplay with good single player plus multiplayer options. My biggest critisism of the old game would be the graphics. The graphics to me are peripheral compared to the gameplay, but an improvement in this area and the character interaction would have made warband an amazing game. But all things considered I think it only cost me 15 and I spent more time probably playing WB than I did playing all the other games titles that distracted me last year for long periods, Dragon Age (pc), Fallout 3, (ps2) Red Dead Redemption (ps2).

So whats different in Fire and Sword? Well firstly its a historical setting. The game is set in Eastern Europe and the factions are historical 17th century. Not so bad so far. The basic gameplay is the same, but with the addition of gun powder.

4.0 out of 5 stars More and better Mount and Blade 17 May 2011
By Rob
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Firstly the game installs via Steam, which will be significant if you are one of those who hates Steam with a passion.

The original Mount and Blade was basically Pirates! (the original, not the Disney style remake) on horseback crossed with a miniature Total War. The player wandered the game world with your band of warriors fighting pitched battles on your horse and with your sword in what was basically a sandbox environment until you either got bored or conquered the world. The game is also incredibly moddable and there were and are a dedicated community of modders playing with it.

Warband added more flesh to the bones of the game in the form of a little more story and slightly better and added a really great fun multiplayer feature.

If you have never played any Mount and Blade previously then it is a game where the player controls a hero in third person view (there is a first person view but it isn't really practical to play the entire game from it) and commands his army in battle (in a limited fashion) while fighting alongside them. Combat is carried out third person shooter style using the wasd keys to move and the mouse buttons and mouse to attack and block.

Fire and Sword has a lot in common with the two earlier games - the basic set-up, Lords, wandering bandits, recruitable heroes etc are very similar - but in a few key respects there is a much larger change than between the original game and Warband. The game is set in 17th Century Eastern Europe and has two key features that are different from the two previous offerings.

Firstly it has firearms, which add a fun element to battles. Guns are incredibly powerful, so you have to be very careful in how you attack enemies as a volley of Musket fire will take your character down very quickly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fire and Sword 17 Sep 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword could be considered the first true sequel to the original Mount & Blade, considering it offers a new setting and a new period (Warband was just a great expansion pack). Unlike the original, Fire & Sword doesn't take you back to the fictional kingdom of Calradia, but instead to the real world of 17th Century Eastern Europe, as various factions fight for control of the land.

You start out as an adventurer who helps out a band of French Musketeers, before setting off on your own. The set up is similair to the original Mount & Blade - get up on your horse, recruit a band of followers, raid enemy camps, and try to make a name for yourself. There's a number of factions you can join, from the Polish and Muscovites, to the Cossacks and Swedes - and each have their own styles - for instance the Kingdom of Sweden is heavy infantry centered, the Cossacks have plenty of light cavalry, etc.

A major new addition to the game is that the battles are now centered around musket warfare. No longer will you be able to win a fight with just a good sword arm. This new style of fighting provides plenty of new challenges - and frustrations. Muskets take ages to reload, they run out of ammunition quite fast, they are very inaccurate, but when you do manage to make a hit they can be devestating - one bullet can take down an enemy. The down side to this of course is that it also applies to your character. One well aimed shot, and you've lost the battle. This can be particularly disheartening early on in the game when you have weak armour (or none at all), and you face a large force of musket and arquebus heavy troops. Enemy volleys can also decimate your own army, forcing you to go on long recruting hunts after large battles.
