The value of this game is in that it actually showcases just where exactly current high end mobile GPU's are. A game that is made exclusively for the highest end mobile hardware is something extremely rare, even the most graphically advanced Gameloft and EA titles are made to work on midrange and upwards.

Gaming feels hollow on mobile devices anyway. I'd rather pay $15-20 and have the full game with all content intact. All major titles nowadays using the F2P model strips gameplay content from the game so that you'll buy premium items with real money and cater the difficulty to the game so that you'll have to rely on real cash to help you get the equipment you need to advance. All in all, for a "free" game, you'll pay $100s if not over $1000 if you want to fully tap into the game and all of its content. Game developing studios don't care about their customers anymore, it's all about how much money you can pit from people's pockets that might be willing to pay.

Mount and Blade Warband is awesome. And a bit of a correction, as this game's single player and multiplayer components are separate. The single player is the one that allows you to conquer castles and do the roleplaying elements. The multiplayer is just standard stuff like team deathmatch, capture the flag, as well as some of its own modes like Siege, and the multiplayer mods are brilliant, I particularly like cRPG and Napoleonic Wars. I can't imagine M&B would be very playable on a phone, it is a pretty complex game that Im not sure would even translate well to a gamepad, much less a touch screen. I highly recommend it for compuiter
