Recensioni

“It’s a setting that’s seen rarely in video games. European conflict dominates the strategy landscape and seeing a fresh perspective is very welcome. The fact it’s addictive and enjoyable is even better. This is history made fun.”
8/10 – Strategy Informer

“Sengoku is in every aspect a wonderful simulation of its time, and a historic marvel for strategists.”
9/10 – Gamegrin

“...a game that provide such rich strategic scope that it will very likely be the only game armchair strategists need for the remainder of the year.”
4,5/5 – Digitally Downloaded

Paradox Interactive games have either been a hit or miss for me. Some players get easily bored of these type of games. Although sometimes I do too, I will give Paradox Interactive credit for Sengoku. Despite the approach of the game, Sengoku failed to achieve anything like its predecessors or successors.

The game is focus on war and how Japanese Feudal lords were aiming for their own supremacy. Sadly, this is where the games fail to give the player any incentive to continue playing. I felt that Sengoku was a test for Paradox Interactive to create even better games. Compared to other great titles like Crusader Kings 2 or Victoria II, Sengoku is such a letdown.

Overall, Sengoku is a game that is not on par with Paradox Interactive's standard. Despite my disinterest in Sengoku, I have to applaud Paradox Interactive for their future games. Sengoku was a test for Paradox Interactive and the game studio found their luck with their successors.

If you are expecting a game like Crusader Kings 2, or Europa 4, forget it. It is like a cheap shell of those games and while it does have very similar mechanics and visuals, the gameplay sends you to sleep.

I already beat the game and built everything. I watch the playthroughs, took my time before purchase and made sure this game was something I wanted to spend my money on. It is very much like Crusader Kings, but that game can last forever. If this was $5.00 instead of $10.00 I would not complain. I just expected more bang for my buck.

This game... oh man this game. It's basically CKII lite set in Japan. That's not necessarily bad, but you will not enjoy this game if you keep comparing it to CKII. Aside from that, it's pretty fun. There are a couple of unique features not found in CKII, such as the Religious Factions system and the goal in this game is pretty clear - Become Shogun of Japan. There aren't flexible starts like in most of Paradox's grand strategy games. Another unique thing about this game is that sieged provinces automatically become yours. That means expansion is quick in this game. That also means that you can lose all of your land pretty easily. This game, although inferior to CKII, is still very fun and interesting. Rewrite history, and unite Japan!

In Sengoku you control a Japanese noble in the Sengoku Jidai period. You develop provinces, hire and direct armies, conduct diplomacy, and once your noble inevitably dies, you continue playing as his heir. This continues until someone manages to unite half of Japan for 3 years, thereby becoming shogun.

The game is very similar to the next game by Paradox Development, Crusader Kings 2, The main difference besides the setting being that whereas CK2 is (arguably) primarily about the relations and personalities of characters, Sengoku is primarily about waging war.

Declaring war in Sengoku is as simple as spending some honor. (You need no casus belli.) However, you don't want your honor to fall too much, or your subordinates will cause you trouble, so you need to replenish honor by making gifts of money and land, acquiring titles at the imperial court, build temples, etc.

Unfortunately, while this honor mechanic is fun, it doesn't really keep you occupied very much, and unlike CK2, it's the only non-war element of the game with any real substance to it. There's very little depth to diplomacy, plotting, dynasty-building, or ambition-chasing; the economic model is very simple; and there is no tech-tree. At any time that I wasn't at war, I set the game to maximum speed until I had enough resources to start another war. There simply wasn't much of anything to do.

Unfortunately, combat isn't any better than in CK2 either. It's mostly a matter of creating a big stack with a decent leader and sending it to the enemy. You get to decide where the armies go, but once you meet the enemy and combat starts, it's all purely abstract with some numbers going down over time. It's more fun than it probably sounds, but not a lot more. And again, CK2 does it better, since there you can at least divide your troops over the flanks and center, assign leaders, and utilize a greater variety of troop types.

In conclusion, while I can't say that Sengoku is a bad game, I simply cannot recommend it, since it's been so thoroughly obsoleted by CK2.

I bought it while it was on sale for 2.49 and I don't regret it whatsoever, I'm hooked. It boasts a massive array of personal, politcal and military tasks for you as the leader of your clan to tackle. Easily worth the purchase; as someone who loves these kind of games I'll be playing for quite some time.

A interesting strategy game based in the lands of Japan. This game spans the period of time when lords were constantly fighting for territory. Considering that I'm writing this review without having played any of the other games made by the developer I can say that this game is good from my understanding of it. There are some pros and cons I feel that need to be brought up, though take into account I'm not a expert at evaluting games.

Pros:
-Somewhat addictive, possible to play this for hours. I keep finding myself returning to it.
-Quite fast-paced and fun depending on who you play
-An interesting take on Japan, relevant for those with some interest for that country
-Satisfies military and management minded people

Cons:
-Difficult. One moment you could have a lot of territory, the next thing you know half your nation is in civil war, which is tricky to manage (Though this could just be my skill!)
-A little hard to get into. I found it quite difficult to really understand what I was doing at the start.
-Unbiased starting positions. It is part of the game to choose who you want to be but sometimes it just seems impossible to play some nations.
-Those damn Ikko-ikki. Stop invading my territory goddamit!

Note: Summary at the bottom of the review.

If you are interested in Japanese history, you probably already know that the Sengoku Jidai or Warring States (C.E. 1467-1573) is a defining part of it, culminating in the Tokugawa Shogunate. This game places you in control of any one of a large number of clans in this era. From there, your strategy skills decide if it will be your clan that rises to unify Japan, or fade into obscurity. It is impossible not to compare this to Crusader Kings though, with which it has a lot in common. You can call this a "proto-Crusader Kings", as some of the systems are the same, but it still lacks a lot of the things that made CK2 so brilliant! Even so, it has a charm all its own.

Through diplomacy, assassination, warfare and alliances, you can change history, which is always fun, right?

Pro:
*A fairly deep strategy game from the masters of the genre, Paradox.
*A setting that will have you hooked if you love the period.
*Frequently on sale for hardly more than a CK2 or EU4 unit pack.

Con:
*Falls short of its brilliant sibling, Crusader Kings II.
*Takes some effort to understand the mechanics, which can be complex.
*Battles aren't really that involved, the conquest is where the fun lies.


Summary:
The game is similar to the excellent Crusader Kings II, though it lacks some of the brilliance and fun of CK2, not to mention the scope. Nevertheless, it succeeds in being a very detailed and interesting strategy game set in a defining moment of Japan's history. 6/10 -Recommended.

9,99€ -75% = 2,49€ till 15.9.2014 I suggest this game since it's really awesome and so much to do.
In my opinion since it's an old game it's not worth buying in full price, but currently with just 2,5€ it's worth so much!

I don't undestand people saying in reviews that there is not much to do in this game. I don't understand what kind of Ruler they were since everything is playable from a great big clan with tons of wars... to a minor vassal in a peaceful nation.

Forge alliances, intrigues making plots, if you are a low standing individual in a big clan.
Gain honor and then lose it due to wars.... siege castles with big armies or just attack them losing a lot of soldies with 10,000 attack a force of 1,000 and win over provinces! Grand titels , become ruler of japan.

I don't see why people are like it's crusaders etc. well i played them too - and i prefer the samurai over the noble european stupid middle ages.

This is a strong strategy game but very confusing because there is no tutorial. Took me a little while to get used to it and i still don't understand all the mechanics of the game. overall it is a very engaging game i love the plot screen but my leader keeps on getting killed by ninjas. I'd give it a 7/10 and it is only worth it when it is on sale.

Do not spend massive bucks on this wait till a sale.

In my Opinion,

8/10

Worth the $: Yes

Game: Sengoku is a great Paradox Interactive strategy game very similar to CK2 with less depth and complexity but still filled with depth to keep it interesting. It is a great game for those people interested in getting into more in-depth games. In Sengoku you choose who you want to play under what clan and you try to rule the clan and expand the clan to own over 50% of Japan. Japans map is massive and seems to bigger than CK2's map and at the least equal in size just because Japan has been divided so well that it makes the map bigger.

Goods:
-Replayibility
-Great game mechanics
-Massive map
-Many characters
-Ninjas!
-Difficult

Bads:
-Weak AI when it comes to their unit strategy.

A lot of people say it's just JapaneseCrusader Kings 2 and they are kind of right; Sengoku operates on a slightly older, slightly more broken version of CK2's engine. That being said, if you like CK2 you'll probabyl like it for what it is. It is more intimate, as the game only deals with the island of Japan. It is horribly fractured in this time period so there is plenty to do, whether you simply want your dynasty to live, usurp your leige's title, or unite all of Japan. It isn't that expensive as is and frequently goes on sale, so if you are 100's of hours into CK2 and sick of looking at a Karling blob or Mongol hordes, pick this up.

A small game, but very complete nonetheless. Set during the Sengoku era, "Sengoku" (yes, no ♥♥♥♥) allows you to play as a daimyo, or a lord if you prefer it. Treaties, treasons, assassinations, wars, religions: choose your way to become the Shogun. With a gameplay similar to Crusader Kings II, decent graphics (but that's not the point when you play a wargame) and an historic accuracy that can be perfected with the mods (oh, yeah, mods-friendly), Sengoku is a game that I like playing. The replay value is theorically infinite -theorically because one can easily be bored to see the same map again, and again. If you love wargames, or Japan: go ahead.
