About This 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.

Game Features

Total War: SHOGUN 2 features enhanced full 3D battles via land and sea, which made a name for the series, as well as the tactical campaign map that many refer to as the heart and soul of Total War. Featuring a brand new AI system inspired by the scriptures that influenced Japanese warfare, the millennia old Chinese “Art of War”, the Creative Assembly brings the wisdom of Master Sun Tsu to Total War: SHOGUN 2. Analysing this ancient text enabled the Creative Assembly to implement easy to understand yet deep strategical gameplay.

  • BUILD your kingdom on the inviting and turn-based campaign map. Wield economic, political, and military power to amass wealth, armies, and influence.
  • SCHEME according to the "Art of War" by Sun Tzu. Use fire and siege tactics, spies and assassins to adapt to the ever-changing conditions on the battlefield and throughout your kingdom.
  • BATTLE ONLINE and experience the main campaign in two-player mode. Then join epic online battles with up to 8 players and lead your online army to glory in special campaigns.

Overall, the game is great. However, the developers seem to have forgotten about the game soon after the release. Glitches and bugs reported just after the release haven't been fixed yet and will not be. Furthermore, the game in multiplayer co-op mode is painful to play because every once in a while there is some glitch corrupting the saves (probably a desync between host and a second player) - a problem that hasn't been addressed from the day one. Shame really, the game is great in single player but if you wish to play the campaign with your friend you may have a hard time with reloading save from 20 turns before in order to fix an issue. BTW: for some reason reviewing the DLC - Fall of the Samurai is unfeasible, and one thing worth noting is that the base game is much less glitchy and buggy as the expansion is.

Terrific, great game. 4/5 Stars. I would personally give it 5/5 stars- if the game itself was a little more in-depth. Theres no story mode- but imagine every fight at an overview where you may control each unit and watch it literally fight, thats what gets you this game! This game is not for people who want a storyline, but for people who love free-play. I have owned the game for a few months now, played it on two different laptops(a 5year old and a Month year old). My 5-year old laptop does NOT run it as well, but I am able to play it just fine, so long as I do not try to speed it up, I encounter little to no lag issues. With regards to my month year old laptop, I was able to run it perfectly, and the detail that the units get is 100% worth getting the game. Individuality is a huge aspect.

Having played this game for like 200+ Hours i gotta say i'm giving it a 100% good review and i will explain why i recommend this game to anyone who has interest on Japanese History.

Pros
- The game has an authentic array of units at its disposal
- The campaign is so realistic than anyone who controls Kyoto shall be involved in the Realm Divide wherein all the family clans in Japan will become your worst enemies
- The best thing about Shogun is the agents. Why? is because they can make a difference in the game like Sabotaging Armies, Committing Arson and Assasinating Generals and Faction leaders. Aside from that they can administer settlements and apprehend spies from other factions
- The movement points that you can build a railway to easily transport armies across Japan
- The General can rally and inspire wavering troops that are falling back
- Lastly offcourse no Total War game would be complete without the battle. The battle has a new animation system that you can even see Samurai decapitating enemy warriors and blood splurting all around the battlefield.

Cons
- I can't think of a bad review for the game the only thing that bothers me is the price of the DLC's so if you want to play this game better buy it on Sale just like what i did.

All in all absolutely excellent. Maximum replayability of any total war, and with the best multiplayer of any total war. I have over 1k hours on it after 2 and a half years. Definitely reccomend over Rome 2, Attila, or Warhammer.
