Summary: I tried the demo and it wasn't to my taste. I was hoping for something with a bit more action, and all I got was lots of adjusting spreadsheets. But some people will like this style of "intense strategy", so try the demo you've got nothing to lose.
Summary: Sengoku will never be a great game, though it could be a good one with a little bit of work. -Bugs: There are still plenty of them, some serious. For instance, players are being randomly defeated by a clan named "No Character". I had one game where I was unable to select my home territory.
Summary: If you have never played another Paradox title before you should avoid this game. Go for EU3, Victoria 2 or HoI3. All three of them are cheaper and better. No tutorial and no manual for a game like this is ridiculous. The interface needs some major work. Apart from that the mechanics seem solid but wholly unremarkable and lack true innovation that sets it apart. After a few patches the If you have never played another Paradox title before you should avoid this game.
Summary: Spent YEARS playing EU2, spent MONTHS playing Vicci (ONE), spent WEEKS playing Crusader Kings, spent minutes playing this pile of junk. Please Paradox. DO NOT RELEASE THE SAME GAME OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
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.
Summary: In a nutshell: A glorified game of Risk. The Fanboys come here, at the request of the developers, to push the score up but this game just doesnt cut it. If you want a real strategy game, look elsewhere and dump this poor excuse of a game in the gutter, where it belongs. And Paradox, stop telling your Fanbois to come here and give it a high score. It's really pathetic to see such an In a nutshell: A glorified game of Risk.
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.
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: 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: 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.
