VBlogger review Mount & Blade:
As is true with many ‘indie’ games, the market is fairly narrow. Mount & Blade is a role-playing game, and has a certain fantasy feel, but it is not an epic fantasy game. It is more like a game wrapped around a fairly simple idea: mounted combat that works.

That pretty much defines the game and the appeal. If you have played fantasy role-playing games and wished for mounted combat, this is an easy game to recommend. If you have played games like Two Worlds that offer limited mounted combat and wished that someone would do it right, this is an easy game to recommend. If you love games with detailed action-based combat systems, just get out there and buy this game already!

Pros:
+ Best mounted combat ever
+ Solid combat system in general
+ Immersive environments
+ Budget Price

Cons:
- Lack of compelling story
- Graphics lack variety
- Indistinct soundtrack

The verdict? A very simple "buy it" which I have to say I agree with.
