Summary: This is my favorite game of all time. I played video games since i was 8 and i've tried many; but Shogun 2 is something different. I am not big on reviews, but seeing a 3 star rating on such an epic game doesn't sit well with me. I've put 608 hours into this game and replayed it countless times. Graphics are amazing ( make sure to get Darthmod, a great free addition to an already epic game). All soldiers look differently not like a bunch of clones.
Summary: I got this game completely out of wanting to use the advanced weapon systems in it. I can say that it satisfied it, the game does a great job with showing how old melee tactics cannot alone win you the battle anymore. You must use a lot of unconventional tactics against your foe to take them down. The combat is lighting fast and if your not careful you can lose 100's of men if your not paying attention. I really liked this game.
Summary: First off anybody who bought SHOGUN 2 FALL OF THE SAMURAI and try to load SHOGUN 2 will be surprised at how fast it takes to load from steam. It took 25 seconds not kidding 25 seconds happened so fast I thought I was having problems with steam. The FALL OF THE SAMURAI and SHOGUN 2 are very much compatible with each other. Even though SHOGUN 2 THE FALL OF THE SAMURAI is a stand alone sequel.I am very pleased with SHOGUN 2 and very glad I bought the game.
