This is what every Warband player should download as fast as possible!
Gameplay-wise I see only pros and no cons at all. I think the best thing about Floris mod pack is that it only adds to the game. If it changes anything, for example tournaments, then there is most likely an option to turn it off and make Native-like again!
That's why Native players will not miss anything of standard Warband, but will additionally find a whole bunch of cool features! I cannot even decide what feature I like the best - maybe joining a lord's army as a soldier? Maybe ships? I bet I still haven't discovered everything yet!
However, what is inevitable when using custom modules, I have experienced some technical problems. Crashes occur, not regularly, but they are still a nuisance. I have also found out that for me expanded tournaments don't work at all - the game crashes when I try to enter one. For now on, I had to turn them off and stick with Native ones. The game also lagged a few times and I had to restart the computer.
On the other hand, however, I haven't noticed many bugs, really. It's really nice that a mix of all these different modules can run that smoothly and not interfere with one another.
+It's still Native, but much better!
+A LOT of features, big and small, that should be implemented in Native to begin with!
+Generally no bugs
-Technical issues and crashes
I wouldn't give it a 10, though it's almost perfect. If only the mod was more stable (though it IS quite stable) it would be definitetely the best grade. However, giving 9 would be too cruel for this single downside, therefore I decided to give this 10. After all, it's still the best Warband module out there!
Rijn the Specpyre feels a bit like a mashup between Zelda and Castlevania. Sold? Sold.
On a more serious note... Quick breakdown of the game
Gameplay: usual top-down ARPG view and gameplay, save points, all the classic goodness. Some weird collisions here and there (the first boss for example), but it feels about fine. Minor gripe: hotkeys 1-4 are fiddly as usual (AZERTY keyboard).
Music: pretty good, sets the mood in a fit fashion.
Looks: just what you see in the screenshots. A bit square, but nothing off-putting.
Story: Can't begin to tell how good the writing is. The only one minor problem is, in fact, the title of the game. That says a lot. Apart from that, reading the game books is a pleasure in and of itself. Well worth the price for them alone.
