No, the melee is more fluid and precise than the wild flailing offered by M&B. And it isn't trying to be a sim.

You might not notice it so much in battles with several hundred combatants where you're just riding around and swinging at dudes wherever you can, but M&B is not even close to "mindless swinging" in mano-a-mano melee. You can swing from either side or overhead and stab, and unless you're using a big shield, that matters as to which direction you need to block in order to avoid being hit. Of course, you do need to be playing with the difficulty set to standard levels (it defaults to something like only 1/4 of damage being dealt to you) for blocking or getting around their blocks to really matter. Or play in multiplayer, which is really the low-budget originator of this fad.
