Total War: Shogun 2 (PC)

 

When the first Shogun: Total War came out, its real-time battles made you feel like you were playing through the epic battle scenes from one of Akira Kurosawa's samurai films. Shogun 2 is like playing through a new, remastered edition of that game,...

Total War: Shogun 2

 

My last experience with Total War was the regrettably mediocre Empire: Total War (or is that Total War: Empire now?). It was such a step backwards so as to scare me off the quick-to-follow Napoleon: Total War; however, success in any field means...

Shogun 2: Total War Review

 

I was out of the loop when the first Shogun: Total War came out and by the time I found out of its existence, after the release of Rome: Total War, I just couldn't go back and play it.

Shogun 2: Total War

 

There are a lot of words that can describe Shogun 2: Total War; artistic, gorgeous, stunning, but none of them would say enough. With a new, smaller focus, Creative Assembly has created a stunning world you have to see to believe.

You'll have access to unlimited movement, a surplus on pretty much all of the resources you'll need, and perhaps the coolest feature is for one day construction.

Shogun 2: Total War

 

A decade-old series turns in its best installment yet.

Shogun 2’s only major flaws are outside the game. Shogun 2 is much less friendly to modders than the series has been in the past; the hardware requirements (and consequent loading times) seem a little bit high; and occasionally drop-in battles are hard...

Total War: Shogun 2 Review

 

Shogun 2 reenergizes and reinvents the Total War franchise.

AI that can play its own game; immense replay value; Total War embraces multiplayer; fantastic level of detail, beautiful artwork and epic visual style

Some crash issues; AI still has some holes in certain situations

Shogun 2: Total War Review

 

Total War developer Creative Assembly honors Japan, strategy gaming, and their own reputation.

There must be some mistake. Whatever game I've been playing lately -- the splash screen says it's called Shogun 2 and was created by Creative Assembly -- can't be from the same folks who made a spectacular mess of Empire: Total War. It's certainly not...

Total War: Shogun 2

 

A game of chess

Visuals and audio are stunning. Superb AI

Somewhat steep learning curve for beginners

Locations vary too, which always makes the game more playable, with lush vegetation in some locations whilst other areas have snow covered mountainous terrains that look imposing. The time of day that battles take place also varies, and can change the...
