Mana Pool: "Mount&Blade: Warband is from Paradox Interactive, and is the sequel to the original Mount&Blade. It’s a sort of simulation strategy action RPG-thing set in a fictional medieval world. This may strike you, dear reader, as an unhelpful description. For someone like me, who came into Mount&Blade: Warband without knowing anything other than being told, “You should play this. It’s good,” sorting the game into a neat genre box is not an easy task."
