Summary: I think that I am Paradox fanboi as i own or at least played i think every their Europa-like game. Some gave me more fun then other and for example i love EU3 and after all expansions that i have it's just masterpiece for me - the same with hoi2. But with Hoi 3 they went to far for me making it just too big and complex. Here - in Sengoku - at least till patches and expansions (if there will be any) they went in totally opposite direction dumbing in down too much.
Summary: Once again, paradox interactive shows it's fans the true meaning of not providing a decent manual to enjoy their products. This time out, the Interface is slightly improved but poorly optimised for resolutions above the norm. The game in itself, requires the player to have a working knowledge of previous paradox games, namely Crusader Kings and EUII: Rome. Like most Strategy Titles from Paradox, this latest offering offers little, it's Crusader Kings set in Japan.
Summary: Click Expand for Full Review ================================================================================ A Comment on the Game, and Paradox's Vote Rigging: Some of the negative reviews are well deserved, and some of the positive reviews are bogus upvotes by people sent here by Paradox directly from their Forums (pathetic Paradox, you've sunk to a new low).
Summary: The shame of some game developers knows no boundaries these days... Look at Paradox, for instance. They actually invite their FANBOY zealots to come here and vote for their 'favorite game' in order to RIG THE SCORE. This is CORRUPTION at its best. Have a look at their forums and see for yourself how pathetic those people are: http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/showthread.php?
Summary: It's a good strategy game, but I would be amazed if most people stuck around long enough to find that out. There is absolutely no tutorial, and the mouse over tips aren't always what you are looking for. If you haven't played any of paradox's previous games, and you don't like learning by trial and error, I would stay the hell away from this game.
Summary: I saw an ad for this so thought I'd download the Sengoku demo as its out this week. I spent my lunchtime trying to play it but had absolutely no idea what I had to do. There was a loads of text to read which is fine I guess, but no instructions so I ended up just randomly clicking on things. Couldn't work out who I was! The Japan map looked quite nice but there wasn't much happening.
Summary: Not much seems to happen, so I was a bit disappointed. Maybe I'm playing it wrong. I don't think Paradox have made a bad bit of software, I generally like them in principle, but I wouldn't really call it a game. I prefer real-time battles, or other Paradox games like Mount & Blade.
Summary: Absolutely gorgeous grand strategy game, with a bit faster pace than other pardox titles and lighter on the economic site this character driven gem is absolutely addictive. You have to put some effort in learning the gameplay of course (e.g. reading the manual), thirty minutes of flying around the map won't do the job. Maybe the previous critic (andreks) should try tic tac toe (the war edition) as deep strategy is certainly not his domain.....
Summary: A fairly shameful display if you ask me. I spent thirty minutes flying around the map wondering what was going on. I should've learned from the shoddy demo that it wasn't worth my money. Refund?
