Gamertell has posted a mostly positive review of Paradox Interactive's PC game Mount & Blade.
From the review:
"Mount & Blade is a bit of a paradox with the way it is set up. It's not a hardcore gamer's game and it isn't a casual gamer's game. Halting somewhere in the middle, it's a bit of an acquired taste with a simple story that mixes Elder Scrolls character building and the Medieval II: Total War game play...
The game in its entirety is fun, though it is an acquired taste. You either love it after the first hour or so of playing it or you absolutely hate it. However, if it does grip you (or can get past an initial negative reaction), you'll be finding an addictive game that won't even let you go after the end of the story."
