Summary: There was a mix up by Amazon when they issued me 2 store cards with different acct. # . By the time they got it fixed I still had not received the 2 items that I paid for. Now when I look at my "orders list" it says they delivered the 2 items on the 23rd of this month. I did receive a package from Amazon on that day with only my name on the outside, no paper work inside and 3 sets of pot-holders. I wonder if I will ever get what I paid for?
Summary: This software is already out dated. You can buy it and it will run but if you intend to play against other gamers over the net, you'll have to buy additional content. Let me rephrase, you won't HAVE to buy it but if you don't you'll be pitted against those that have paid extra and they will stomp you with their paid-for superior units. You read it right. Pay up or play at a disadvantage. This is extortion and Creative Arts should be ashamed.
Summary: I would love to sit here and say this game is great, and it is in single player. Single Player is amazing....if you like playing by yourself this game is perfect. BUT if you prefer Network Play this game is BAD. I cant finish any network game without getting a out of sync issue. I bought this game 2 times....one for me and a friend to play. We haven't been able to finish one game together without the game freezing and going out of sync.
Conclusion: I loved the Total War series, until it came to Shogun 2. This game was advertised as having an AI system "which obeys the Art of War, and actively reacts to your decisions during battles". It does neither. Worse, it openly cheats - if you send an army at an enemy province, you can watch as the AI gifts itself entirely new, large, experienced, well-equipped armies in said province, and uses them to grind down your invasion force before throwing them out in counter-attack.
Conclusion: I recently purchased this game, And it took nearly six hours to install 4 of which was used downloading the last 25% from steam, Now i don't know why it cant just be like normal and install files directly from the disc like every game iv played in the last ten years of playing, It didn't load at any point a waste of 7 pound Dreadful.
