Summary: Really fun game, the multiplayer is great (well except when you come up against 10 star opponents with all cav armies) after I got through my first campaign, which is much (a ton) harder than any total war game that I've played before (Empire, Medieval 2, Rome), I started to have doubts on if I should have purchased Fall of the Samurai.
Summary: A fine edition to the Total War franchise. This game needs a patient hand to navigate the menu system, and handle the battlefield. However; it is a joy to play, the different take of venue for this great game system was very welcome. It is slightly different than the other editions, I believe it reflects the mind set of the Japanese, romanced or not. My only caveat is the Steampunk pairing of services that is required to install and run the game.
