|Graphics||9.5||The graphics are near perfect for a styled game like this, samurai swinging swords and spears around in sengoku jidai. You won't find anything like this anywheres else looking as good as it is. However you will need a modern pc in order to run it at maximum graphics, which is well worth it|
|Gameplay||8||Gameplay is great, The morale works as intended, if your units drop to a certain amount of men left they start getting nervous and then waver. Causing them to retreat to your set up regroup point or shatter, being unable to be clicked on and retreat offscreen for the remainder of the battle. Cavalry do what they're supposed to do, they are used for flanking, charging men without spears and helping chase down routed enemies. Ashigaru are Peasants armed with weapons. Very low morale but comes with huge unit sizes with the ability to combat cavalry but do bad in normal melee against better melee units. Samurai are Samurai, better than ashigaru, but more expensive. The normal type of samurai which is Katana And Yari And No-Dachi which is a big katana are what we are going to cover here. Katana Samurai are easily outmatched by cavalry. Yari Samurai are easily outmatched by Katanas, The balance is great. No-dachi is basically katana samurai but if you charge with them they literally take twice the amount of units they are and bring them down. Like chuck norris as their spirit animal they go in and clean up everything. With a banzai ability stopping them from routing. The only problem is Multiplayer veteran balance which I won't cover in this review, however do not let this deter you from buying the game. The music is EXTREMELY well made. we're talking about music on par with Animes soundtracks such as SAO ,Your lie in april and BoT while still on par with some classical pieces I feel. You should honestly pay for the soundtrack.|
|Multiplayer and Co-op||10||Multiplayer balance is mostly fine, it's rock paper scissors dressed up with samurai units and some variety such as siege weapons, now you're probably wandering " This game game out 4 years ago, I bet the community is dead " It's not, if you want to buy this for multiplayer then I recommend it. Averaging at about 5,000 people playing every day (EST) and maybe more on the weekends, this game is far from being dead. and you buying it will help the game grow back to it's former glory of 25,000 people. Now explaining rock paper scissors in shogun 2, Spear beats cavalry, cavalry beats swords, swords beat spear. bow beat everything at range but everything beats bow in melee. |
this game has a form of RNG, Think payday 2 but without masks and colors you're getting armor pieces and retainers. Retainers boosts your armies stats, gives you helpful stats for your general and does other useful stuff. Some retainers are LEGENDARY and only have a 1/1000th Drop Chance, while giving you extremely powerful abilities. Example here is Legendary Retainer : Tengagoken Katana, gives your entire general unit +10 Melee attack. If you complete armor sets you also get retainers ONLY available if you completed that armor set, you can also wear the armor on your generals avatar and it can be seen in battle. I'm not covering naval because I don't play naval.
Co-op campaign is another means of multiplayer under the multiplayer button. It's campaign but with two people and you can go head to head or play it together. More details for the same things under campaign.
|Campaign||9||Campaign is brilliantly done. so many ways you can replay it, and many difficulty settings for the die-hard. It includes most of the notable clans during the sengoku jidai era, while most smaller clans get wiped out in the first 25 or so turns. theres trade routes to boost your income you get to by ships while also giving you that item you're trading so it may not be in japan being highly valuable. You have a general system where they get traits overtime and rank up for a special skill tree, they also get retainers aswell. There is a research tree like many Total war games where you research what you want to learn with it branching down from two choices " Bushido " and " Chi ". Bushido is ment for military means and getting better units, chi is ment for civil/diplomatic means while also giving you access to some units or agents. Agents are useful for many things such as apprehending ninja agents or infiltrating a castle and setting it ablaze with assassins.|
|Replayability||10||I can easily see people getting 3,000+ Hours on this game, theres nothing to NOT do. You can do campaign custom battles reinactments with friends conquer japan on multiplayer do Co-Op campaign, the possibilities are endless. Of the time i've had this the only reason I don't have over 3,000+ hours is because I have a Youtube channel to worry about, Piano/Music Theory, and other games.|
|Overall||9.5||No game can be perfect, except this one. There are such tiny issues i've found its the only reason it's getting a 9.5. Other than that it would be a MASTERPIECE|
