Star Wars Conquest is a Mount&Blade; module which transforms a medieval world into the far, far away galaxy... with the same premises than the original game, this module offers an open sandbox where the player can do anything he wants. Based on a Galactic map and hundreds of planets.
It's a really impressive modification. Especially when you consider how large the game world is and the amount of changes made. With the original stormtrooper armour and such, this is the greatest mod for Mount & Blade so far. But there are some issues dragging it down unfortunately. Random crashes, unbelievably hard starting areas (when you can't escape from gangs) and a few things in the dialouges that propably forgot to be changed. For example, in the dialouges when you want to join a faction, they haven't really changed that much. It really takes you out of the experience when you're talking to Emperor Palpatine and he sounds like he's from the middle-ages. The same goes for pretty much the people on moons/smaller worlds and they talk to you as if it's still the dark ages.
The AI is also a bit confusing, sometimes they can't hit the broadside of a barn if they were inside it, and sometimes they can hit me in the head from across the map. Lucky shots? Perhaps, but it's very frustrating when it happens in larger battles. And in larger battles, when the friendly AI reaches a certain distances from the enemy, they automatically switch weapons to swords/knifes and rush the enemy. This is unfortunate because sometimes, having your soldiers fire at the enemy in a bit closer range is far more profitable then having them go gun-ho into enemy lines.
So in conclusion, a fantastic mod with a few negatives that drag down the score because it throws you out of the experience pretty heavily.
Also, what is up with the bars? If you accidentely click on a patron inside it, they will tell you that you are an enemy and EVERYONE will immediately drop what they are doing and kill anything that moves. And I'm not kidding. So don't click on any other then merchants/bartenders in the bars. Or you'll spark the next galactic war for some reason.
Amazing at adding a whole new type of game play to Mount and Blade by creating the Star-Wars Universe with great possibilities to create the very wars and fights you always wanted to see from the film. Needs a lot of improvements and development still;however is a superb mod for a start... really fun to play .... download it using the Free demo of Mount and Blade and have a go yourself.
