Summary: This game is great. As a fan of RTS games and samurais, this was like a dream come true. Most of the bad reviews are not about the game itself, but the fact that this game requires a lot of hardware. I am running this on my ASUS G75vw-ds72, and it runs just fine although it can get slow at places.
Summary: I am a long time fan of this series, dating back to the first Medieval Total War. The last title I played was Empire Total War which was also good but not nearly as refined as this game. Here is my breakdown of the good (+) and what could be improved (-) + Smaller scale.
Summary: Total war does it again. They can't seem to make a game i don't enjoy. Well here goes days of my life....thanks a lot shogun 2, you time sucking beauty. This must be what its like to be Christian Stewart.
Summary: I am a Total War series enthusiast and I was very happy with this Shogun series. I was most excited with Rome version then followed by this. This game portrays Japan in detail and I found this game to be quite interesting and fun.
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.
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.
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!!!!!
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.
Summary: I absolutely loved Total War: Rome, so I figured that an Japanese setting would be amazing. On a side note, I did not enjoy Empire that much. Anyways, there are hardly improvements that plagued the older games. For instance, the AI auto resolve is terrible.
