This is one of my favorite mods. It keeps me entertained and its pretty accurate of what the middle east would have been like. It has a lot of easy bandits and deserters early in the game which makes it sooooo much easier to play and most have decent armor so you can get better things faster
Game looks nice but the controls don't feel natural enough for me and I don't feel there's enough of an interaction with the opponents. Fights seem based on repeating patterns. I couldn't see a round clock and this removed any sense of urgency to fight so slow, boring but successful patterns could be used to fight.
