Reviews

“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

Become Shogun of Japan in Paradox Interactive's Sengoku!
There is a huge amount of clans in the game, where the player can start out as the leader of a clan, or just a vassal of a clan's family. This allows different playstyles, such as starting out as the head of a clan and immediately going to war, or breaking free from your leige and forming your own clan and forcing your leige to commit seppuku (ritualistic suicide). The game also puts the aspect of religion, as upsetting a religious group will cause rebellions to spawn near a temple, shrine, or church of that particular group; having good relations will grant the player bonuses. Although the teminology and mechanics of the game are hard to learn at first, it's easy to understand.
The soundtrack is amazing, as well.
Would recommend Sengoku to a friend.

A tricky game to get a handle on, but the premise is fun. Perhaps not as well executed as other games of its kind. Still, I had a good time poking around in it.

I only sort of recommend this game; Europa Universallis and Crusader Kings are better games, more expansive and flexible, especailly after you've picked up some of the DLCs but when on sale this makes a cheap, narrow alterinative.

This game is a great start for the Sengoku era, it could be even bigger with some kind of DLC or a SENGOKU 2. For those who are familiar with Paradox games like CKII would feel like this is a interesting but a easy game. I like the theme and that it differs from the usual games, what is also expected taking the cultural differencies in factor. I recomend for everyone to try this game and let's hope, that Paradox will work on it to make additional tasks aviable for this game in the future. Althoug I just started this game I quickly came into understanding what is what. Also achievements whould be nice. If You are interested in strategy games this is worth consideration even if for a brief while.
