Summary: Shogun 2 is an amazing game. The gold addition is a bang for your buck. The game is fun and challenging, and you sometimes feel as your in the game. It runs nicely on most computers. I play on my laptop and it runs very well. Shogun 2 is amazing.
Summary: This has a lot of the best of what the Total War series has developed. It's the most involved and enjoyable of the series and the most difficult. Now a big army isn't enough. Economy is even more sensitive than it was in previous editions and once again the battle engine is much improved.
Summary: The majority of reviews and previews of this game all said that it would include all of the available DLCs (minus the Blood Pack) but it does not include any of them except for the Rise of the Samurai!!
Summary: Shogun 2 and fall of the samurai are two of the best made total war games of the series. They will keep you entertained for 100's of hours. The multiplier is great and the campaigns will allow you to conquer all of Japan in 3 different time periods.
Summary: I actually wanted the game with the Hattori clan, but it was unavailable and this version was rapidly becoming harder to find in disc form. The startegy and style is epic in nature and I have played all of the age of empires games, company of heroes as well, and this title is by far my favorite.
