Summary: These folks Sold me a game with a invalid key! Don't buy from them because they have no way of knowing what they are selling you. I asked them to send me another game and refund my money and that way I'm a happy buyer and I tell my friends and they wouldn't do that. Do not buy from these people!!!!! They don't get not even one Star from me!
Summary: For me, after a brilliant start with Shogun, Medieval, and Rome, the Total War series got too bogged down with a glut of unit types. What I liked about the first three was that the simplicity of tactical knowledge required - pikemen > horsemen > archers > pikemen - to play the game did not create a simplistic battlefield. In the tutorial for Shogun, when a depleted squad of archers on a hill take out a rushing unit of samurai, the game shows its intention.
Summary: I don't know what these clowns are complaining about, but I absolutely love this game. Granted, Steam sucks complete a**. But you know what? If it weren't for Steam, the only PC game you would ever play would be some worthless port. Your first clue in that this might be a decent game is that there is no PS3 or Xbox version. This game was made exclusively for PCs and takes full advantage of my new setup.
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.
Great game, definitely recommend any Total War series products.

Summary: Great game that has numerous possibilities and scenarios. Campaign mode is excellent as always with all the different units available for your control. Shogun 2 is definitely a great buy and series that will provide hours of fun and enjoyment. I highly recommend people to try this product out if they enjoy playing any of the games from the Total War series. The interaction of the characters in the game also bring the product to another level.
Summary: Shogunt Total War is simply one of the best RPG games of the year. To those who have played before TOTAL WAR games, know that this is the best Total War game yet. Many of the best rating game websites put the game with a score of 9/10. Of course, as it is a big game, it is also a gigantic installation. It will take almost 15gb form your hard disk, but believe me.
Total War: Shogun 2 is unlike any other RTS out there and is worth a look @
28 July 2011
Summary: Total War: Shogun 2 is an excellent, in depth game with many features both online and offline. I bought this product because I am an RTS freak, I love the RTS genre to a fault, and while this isn't what most people would consider a normal RTS, it is exactly for that reason that I love it.
Summary: UPDATE REVIEW: I'm starting to more corrupted save files now and lost hours of game-play, very frustrating! Reduced rating from 4 stars to 2 STARS. It was fun while it worked though. As another reviewer has stated, it's best to download the game from Steam. Just get the serial key from Amazon, activated and download it from Steam. Amazon's game download service has always been slow for me. I usually get about 2/3rds of my speed.
