The editors at Bit-tech are offering up the latest review of Mount & Blade: Warband, in which they award TaleWorlds' standalone expansion pack with a 7/10.
Does Warband represent good value for money for those that already own the original? Probably not, unless you're a stalwart of the multiplayer, frankly. Are we disappointed that Warband didn't get some of the fixes it so desperately needed and are we annoyed at some of the incredibly basic oversights in it's design? Yes to both and, yes, in many ways these ruin the game.
But, is Warband a fun and addictive title that we think we'll probably be playing for a long time to come regardless of these issues? Yes a hundred times yes.
