Blend Games writes: "Riding a horse into battle with loyal townsfolk at your side will redefine calvary battles in this non-fantasy, medieval game. Adventuring across vast lands, joining factions for security, or sieging lands for control, all makes up the general gist of Mount & Blade. I would probably say it's a game that might best be described as a realistic version of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
Indie games rarely receive the kind of acknowledgment they deserve in the world of video game journalism. But every once in a while an indie game will break through the crowds and actually do something so true to form, so original and so polished that people actually start taking notice. Mount & Blade is little bit like that. While the game is officially available as shareware, it hasn't been completely released quite yet."
