Summary: This game is amazing best one of the total war series. Gameplay is great not to difficult to learn. some parts are challenging but a quick google search for tips will help you through the parts that may be challenging to learn. Enjoyable from beginning to end. Awesome expansion packs! It changes the time of the game (year begin to year end) so the expansions aren't just something to nickle and dime the player.
Summary: I have been playing TW since the original Rome, and still have all my games and go back and play them once awhile just to take a break from the new. What a difference, I have to commend on the team that made the latest and greatest Shogun 2, just from the field of battle to the game map, especially the naval warfare detail. The only thing I want to make aware is the downloaded version.....
Summary: Just started playing this night so take it for what it's worth. My comments are only incomparison to total war and its not a step up in my mind but rather a nice addition. It doesnt seem to have the cultural and physical growth of cities like previous total wars so thats a change but very intriguing plot and graphics may suffice. ;I'm still undecided but intrigued nonetheless.
Summary: Very addictive and fun game but our rig has to me excellent. I got very into it and then all of a sudden it would freeze on me but luckily there was a auto save feature. Game play confusing at first but after you get a hang of it it's amazing. P.S.
Summary: just what i expected from the total war series! i got a new computer quad core just to play this game!!!!!!!!! playing it on intergrated 4200 hd till my psu comes in the mail for my radeon hd 5670 1gb. is fun and addicting i will say but very time consuming, i would play from like 6pm-11pm not even noticing it lol but still having trouble trying to play online too cant really get the one on one multiplayer but still the game is fun still.
Summary: Killer game. if you like history you'll love this one. this is a turn based game "solo" and in the internet "group" play. You can customize just about every thing with the internet play. but the solo is more confined, but still way cool. the graphics will rock your world if you have the video card for it. The one I won on e-bay was a down load only. so if you do not have broad band made sure you bid on CD-rom format. Took me for ever too down load.
