“※PS4 version review/ I first played Nobunaga's Ambition on the NES about a million or so years ago, and obviously things have changed a great deal.”

“※PS4 version review/ If you've been patiently waiting for a deep and engaging PS4 strategy title, look no further than Nobunaga's Ambition: Sphere of Influence. While it certainly doesn't do anything new to win over those who aren't fans of the genre, it does more than enough to sap away the hours of anyone who's willing to wrap their head around its complex workings.”
80 – Push Square

“※PS4 version review/ To wrap up it’s a simple pattern of development, diplomacy and war spread across two phases, council and active, that gets you addicted to Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence, but it’s the game’s systems and layers of complexity that keep you coming back for more.On the thirtieth anniversary of Nobunaga's Ambition, Sphere of Influence proves to be a suitable successor for the franchise, offering the single most complicated and compelling simulation to ever come to console.”
