  • Summary: Fall of the Samurai, the first stand-alone expansion for Total War: Shogun 2 , is set during Japan's Boshin War of the 1860s, a civil war that began as an ideological struggle over the shogunate's pro-Western policies. Clans opposed to these policies fought to overthrow the shogunate and return power to the emperor, and over the course of the war, both sides were compelled to embrace armaments like Armstrong guns and ironclads.
  • Pros: Stands alone but you can spar with Shogun 2 players, Modern era units add more bang to the Total War formula, Off shore bombardment breathes new life into navies, Mix of new and old units lets you bring swords to a (Gatling) gun fight
  • Cons: Long load times, Railroads have limited utility

(PC Review) Total War: Shogun 2

The Entertainment Depot
20 April 2011
  • Summary: Total War: Shogun 2 is a fantastic return to form for Creative Assembly. Not all of the series’ problems have been stamped out, as the AI will still renege on agreements and declare war without cause, and some of the new features land with a thud (Realm Divide), but the package is such a step up from the last few years that those are small annoyances when compared to the positives of an improved AI, streamlined interface, and character customization options.

Total War: Shogun 2

  • Excerpt: Som jag redan konstaterat i min hands-on så är alltså nu cirkeln sluten. Creative Assemblys framgångssaga började med Shogun: Total War och nu, elva år senare, är vi tillbaka där det började. Fast mycket har hänt, mycket har förbättrats. Varje ny del i Total War-serien har (oftast) varit en förbättring av konceptet och har alltså likt Sid Meier’s Civilization bara blivit bättre med åren. Shogun 2 avviker inte från denna bana utan är faktiskt den bästa delen i serien.

Total War Shogun 2

  • Excerpt: Après une escapade à l’époque de la poudre, avec Empire puis Napoleon, la série Total War revient à ses classiques : le massacre à l’aide de bouts de métal pointus qui font corps avec l’ennemi. Cap sur le Japon féodal dans ce nouvel épisode. Après avoir remis au goût du jour Medieval : Total War avec un Medieval 2, la série fait de même pour Shogun. Historiquement, Shogun : Total War fut le premier opus de la franchise.

Test : Total War : Shogun 2

GameHope
12 October 2014
  • Summary: Konnichi wa petit scarabée. C'est la brise sacrée du matin qui m'amène vers toi aujourd'hui afin de t'enseigner les rudiments de la guerre, la vraie. Pas celle du fourbe caché dans les buissons ou camouflé dans la boue. Ici, jeune crevette, tu apprendras la guerre stratégique, celle où le cerveau prime sur le muscle et où le champ de bataille s'avère être un vrai échiquier. Tu ne connaîtras ni la peur, ni la couardise, ni la poltronnerie.
  • Pros: Graphiquement monstrueux, Un système de batailles au top, Une option "diplomatie" profonde, Une période historique très dense, Vos aptitudes tactiques mises à l'épreuve, Techniquement très solide, Une bande-son subtile
  • Cons: Un gros PC ou (presque) rien !

Total War torna nel feudalesimo con Shogun 2

21 December 2012
  • Summary: Shogun 2 Total War, in definitiva, è un gioco estremamente valido che sarà sicuramente apprezzato dai fan degli Rts o, perlomeno, da chi ama Total War. La profondità strategica della serie di The Creative Assembly viene riproposta qui in tutta la sua magnificienza, condita da possibilità di personalizzazione che prima semplicemente non c'erano in Total War.
  • Pros: Conferma la profondità strategica tipica di Total War, La personalizzazione dell'esercito in Shogun 2 raggiunge livelli inesplorati in un Total War, Ottima componente multiplayer, Motore grafico ottimizzato
  • Cons: Non è certamente rivoluzionario, La componente gestionale, per via della presenza del solo Giappone, è meno profonda
