  • Excerpt: The expectations for Shogun II: Total War are high. Not only is the series known for its top quality, it also has been going on for quite a while and it’s getting increasingly difficult to keep innovating.

  • Excerpt: The first time I played a Total War game was right here at Cheat Happens. It was within my first year as a full time reviewer, and I knew little about it. After an almost non-stop ten hour session with the game, I gave Empire: Total War a nearly perfect score and had a new favorite series.

  • Conclusion: The Total War Community, especially in recent years, has become a bit hard to please. We're confident though that this will meet most of your expectations. Given the nature of the franchise, don't expect a ton of depth on the scale that Paradox manages, but there's enough here to play around with.

  • Summary: Way back in 1999, the release of Shogun: Total War came as something of a revelation to PC gamers. Creative Assembly had delivered one of the first, if not the first games to effectively marry the depth of traditional turn-based games as with the pace and excitement of real-time combat.
