if anyone has ever played mount and blade, they have come to experience an awesome combat sim ....of coarse the game is still in development, and the graphics are kinda lacking....

so what im wondering is, are there any other games that are similar to this one for the pc?

im looking for a pc game with large scale wars, when i play a hero individually, but not like dynasty wars style where one of my swings can knock out 20 guys ....thats something that i appreciated in mount and blade, that i could potentially be strong, but only if i applied enough skill to understand the opponents weakeness, and i couldnt kill mutliple people in one swing, i felt equal like the rest of the troops.

anyway , if there were some way to find that happy medium, of dynasty warrior graphics with mount and blade combat mechanics, that would be an amazing game, with large scale wars going on.

feel free to suggest anything or ask for more detail :)

I really wish I could recommend something but I've yet to experience another gamethat captures whatMount & Blade offers.

That being said, you may want to keep an eye on Savage 2. It's slated for release this year and will bring anice graphics engine, as well as a variety of combat options (ranged, melee, mounted). While more action-oriented than Mount & Blade's combat, it's the closest thing I can think of. It's an RTS/FPS hybrid meant to be played online so if you only want singleplayer games I can't really suggest anything, unfortunately.

google mount and blade , the official website is tale something .com you will see it ...

but the game is fantastic , mount combat, you can shoot arrows, cross bows from afar, and it feels powerful and realistic ( compared to other games) , the sword combat is great, you can dismount people by killing their horse, or just charge in with a lance. its a good game, to bad its lacking in graphics, but its got the main idea down, good old killing fun :D

I played mount and blade and loved it...great game. I especially liked themount combat. Another game that satisfies me like mount and blade did is the Guild Wars series...dont get mounts in it (yet) but it is a great series.
