About the Game

MASTER THE ART OF WAR
In the darkest age of Japan, endless war leaves a country divided. It is the middle of the 16th Century in Feudal Japan. The country, once ruled by a unified government, is now split into many warring clans. Ten legendary warlords strive for supremacy as conspiracies and conflicts wither the empire. Only one will rise above all to win the heart of a nation as the new shogun...The others will die by his sword.
Take on the role of one Daimyo, the clan leader, and use military engagements, economics and diplomacy to achieve the ultimate goal: re-unite Japan under his supreme command and become the new Shogun – the undisputed ruler of a pacified nation.

Total War: Shogun 2 is almost perfect in every way. It has great graphics and optimization, spectacular gameplay and balance, and the sound effects immerse you into the game. I could actually write a review on this games music alone. This is one of the best Total Wars in gameplay standards, but the only thing this game lacks is cultural variety from other Total War games, which isn't too much of a problem considering the game is based on only one country. Other than that, I can't think of a way they could improve this game anymore. It is simply a masterpiece, and one of my favorites.

Shogun 2 is the apex of the TW series. The period covered in this title is a fascinating blend of old and new period military strategy. It has excellent animations, units, graphics, sound, layout and has many mods that can be applied to extend your gameplay. The AI is "good enough" and the single player is simply superb. I have played over 1000 hours on this title and can recommend it to anyone interesting in this genre.

Total war Shogun 2 is a beautiful strategy game that really allows the player to be immersed in what is one of the most overlooked periods in ancient history. Shogun envelopes you into 16th century Japan and challenges you to control some of the strongest families during the Sengoku jidai or age of war. The challenge that is posed against you is to overthrow the shogunate who has betrayed your family , therefore striking you to pursue unifying and controling Japan. With the highly acclaimed single player which contains the Civilisation style turn based gameplay to the real time strategy from the likes of Command & Conquer and competetive multiplayer, you will never be stuck with nothing to do.

The multiplayer incorporates a unique personal avatar system that was introduced in Napoleon total war and has been reworked, adapted and enhanced within the newest total war title. The user has an avatar which can be created and edited from the start of the multiplayer experience. Throughout the multiplayer battles and through gaining single player acheivements new items for your general can be unlocked to make your leader dominate the battlefield with his new shiny greaves . Upon winning matches you start to conquer the area's of Japan, allowing for seperate unlocks to units and retainers (buff cards) which gives the multiplayer some replayability and continuinity.

8/10 -
*Great strategy with beatiful visuals and great competetive Avatar multiplayer*
*Lacks greater unit variety in the single player*
*AI has improved massivly since napoleon total war however still somewhat lackluster*
*Wonderful mix of real-time and turn-based strategy really makes this game a winner*

Total War: SHOGUN 2 is a strategy games and the next installment of the Total War franchise. The game is set in mainland Japan in the 16th century in the aftermath of the Ōnin War during the Ashikaga Shogunate. You play as one of the Japanese clan and aim to become the new Shogun. The game feature less units variety since all of them are Japanese, but each faction has their own bonus and each generals and characters now has specialization which can be unlocked as they gain experience from battles. This game is even better as this is the most polished and best Total War for me, now also has Steam Workshop support so custom content can be made and downloaded easily. This is the best Total War game yet, I recommend this.

Rating 9/10
