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.

  • 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.

My Japanese history professor commended me for my extensive knowledge of feudal warfare and pronunciation of historical names. But he was annoyed when I kept yelling "A shamefur dispray!" whenever my classmates left the lecture hall to go to the restroom.

In one turn I...
-murdered 10,000 christians
-married my only daughter to my 43 year old general, hoping it would keep his loyalty (it didn't)
-assassinated two priests whose only crime was trespassing
-let dozens of my own men starve in the snow, on purpose, so I could capture Honma Island a turn early
-made that same general commit suicide, for honor or something
-burned Kyoto to the ground just to show everyone how much I truly care about my 'Shogun' status
-spent all my money on a gold mine, instead of food
-put down a rebellion that was my own fault for not providing enough food
-totally f-ing fell in love with this game

...

P.S. she was 14 D:
