Same music as the original eh? Mount and Blade is all you need really - mods for it add what is in Warband. I think Fire & Sword only adds a story the player can follow but it's generally the same. I think I'll pass on this and wait for another Mount and Blade that changes the music, graphics and has true sieges with catapults. I got bored with Warband because it added little new and this seems to be the same really. The original however was great.

Nah Warband is really what you need.

The original has poor graphics and no multiplayer.

Not with the latest patch. The retail version I brought has Warband graphics. The patch brings the graphics on par with Warband and even contains the same music. This is why I got bored with Warband. Also mods for the original add kingdom control. So apart from the missing mutiplayer, the original is pretty much all you need if you're a single player.

Warband is optimized better, adds better modding options, and has better hit detection.

I was wishing that they ported the game to the Warband engine after all this time. I've played the Russian release already. It would be nice if they decided to release the source code.

Don't know who you're talking to Evil Angel but the original is on par in the graphics department with this new edition. Check out the screens for it. The retail version released in 2008 is the same graphics. The only difference with Warband is that armor textures are slightly different and the sky boxes look better but these sky boxes were mods for the original that Taleworlds used for Warband.

Check out the The Revenge of Jdhihisswiherefj's trailer which uses the Expanded Gameplay III mod which adds improved textures for the world map that are better than Warband's map, new animations, sounds, armor and kingdom management.

"Noob"? Ah. It's people like you who make me weep for the human race. I have both the original and Warband too and both are almost the same. The original now has Warband's music and graphics. Warband only has new sky boxes, textures and a new faction and mods for the original add that stuff anyway. Even this latest installment is built on the same original mount and blade engine. If that doesn't appear obvious to you, then that's your own fault. I don't mind supporting INDIE developers but as someone pointed out - mods add all these features into the original. Here's another video of the original:

Would've loved new music, sounds and animations. Maybe improved graphics as well, especially the unit models.

What about the awesome new multiplayer mode with armys of bots? I'll probably buy this(When it goes on sale, of course) just for that! Nice thing about this, is that Warband's price will go down so I can buy it;)

views seem very mixed on this release. however, i see little to no difference in graphics, no music change and little innovation (no discredit intended). i mean, this is something mods can do, it just seems to be maps, skins and maybe sounds (for firearms).
of course, the story will be interesting and good, and the price is also good.

Write some music and pay a high school band to play it for you. Seriously, some of the music in Mount&Blade: Warband sounds like something the Freshmen at my school would find easy.

I won't be getting this expansion, $15 is too much for how little features it actually adds. Sure the non-linear campaign is nice, but we already had firearms in countless mods for mount and blade, theres really not a lot of improvement- especially since the sieges still look problematic, this should have been the priority of the game-- yet doesn't look to be the case (look at the bottle necks in the video- this shouldn't be happening! for that matter more choice in your position and seige equipment would be nice too.)

I'll wait till the next official expansion tbh. I've supported TaleWorlds since the start but this third party expansion seems really lacking compared to Warband (which introduced the political systems and new combat systems).

I may pick this up when its on sale though.
