Summary: Will not install on my Windows System. Called a computer professional in (at $100/hour) and he could not install it. Checked all Help Lines and consumer advice columns -- nothing. Might as well use it as a coaster! Will not be buying any other editions of this game! Very disappointed 11 year-old!
Summary: It is stand alone Japanese warfare for all three era's. I am very impressed. The culture of the samurai is glorified, and intermingled within the culture. It is very insightful to what went on back then, and why things are the way they are today.
Summary: They created a graphical masterpiece here... Unfortunately, they over simplified unit production.... everyone seems to have the same units and it cheapens the experience by making geography the only differentiating factor. It lacks the diversity, simplicity, and playability of medieval 2. It would be great, if not for having to be judged against the first shogun and medievals.
