  • Excerpt: Sengoku was released on 13th of September 2011. As most (if not all) games by Paradox, it is a real-time strategy. Not like the old Age of Empires, Starcraft II nor Men of War. The strategy games created by Paradox are special - the player starts the game controlling a certain number of provinces. Through diplomacy and war, the controlled region is supposed to grow larger, and the final result is to reign the whole map.
  • Pros: Graphics, The style of Paradox, Time-consuming
  • Cons: Almost same as CK (2004), Time-consuming

Sengoku

Strategy Informer
6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Sengoku is an interesting mix. If it wasn’t so daunting, it’d pick up more fans. 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. All it needs is a better tutorial system – some handholding through the cherry blossoms.

Sengoku – PC Game Review

Armchair General
27 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Games focused on the Japanese Civil War ( Sengoku Jidai ), which lasted from the middle 1400s to roughly 1600 AD, have been popular lately. I really don’t mind this. The Sengoku Jidai was an extremely volatile era which left us several examples of new innovative war tactics and unique diplomatic avenues. All these efforts culminated in the military and political unification of Japan.
  • Pros: Beautiful strategy gaming map with immersive gaming music, in-depth diplomatic and political mechanics, unique character-based faction strategy game, and quick load times compared to other Paradox Interactive releases.
  • Cons: Military and warfare aspects are an afterthought. Tutorial system uses pop-up boxes that are annoying to the point where they may no longer useful to some players.

Sengoku Review (Windows PC)

Gamers Daily News
21 September 2011
  • Summary: Overall, if you are a master of strategy titles, you might really appreciate this game once you get into it. For the majority of gamers, it is going to be extremely off putting because of the lack of tutorial and the very steep learning curve.

The Wargamer
15 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Japan, historically a tiny island that isolated itself from the rest of the world, has had its share of internal strife. Most notable was the Sengoku period, where clans from all corners of the land fought for the Shogun crown. The first major computer game to touch on this conflict was Shogun: Total War, which recently had an enjoyable sequel in Total War:Shogun 2.
