I've had better

Amazon Customer, Amazon
4 May 2014
  • 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.

Not as much evolution in the game as I wanted

James A. Gallno, Amazon
8 April 2014
  • Summary: The basic total war style remains the same. The graphics and map change but the game experience is much the same. I'd like something that spanned Civilization (Big tech tree) + Total War (big complex battles) + Individual level Role Playing (Dragon Age or Mount and blade) allow jumping between levels. However this game is much like Total War - Empire, just in Japan.

Sub par game

Brett Holden Hoover, Amazon
9 October 2013
  • Summary: The game is just too complex and for those who are not die hard Total War fans will have problems going through a long campaign mode. The in-game battles are fun and at times difficult but the challenging type of difficult. The economic part of the game is just downright frustrating and for me was the thing that killed the whole game for me. As a fan of Japanese history I was excited to play this game but I never was able to feel comfortable or excited about any clan.

Haven't played it yet after 24 hours...

  • Summary: Amazon's download speed is atrocious. I started my download a day ago and it still claims it will take somewhere from 12-16 hours more to download. I was getting consistent 11-12 mbps for the first couple hours, now I'm lucky to get 500 kbps. So many others have had this problem it needs to be addressed.

Gold Edition missing content

  • Summary: Shogun 2 is a great entry in the Total War franchise. Detailed reviews of the core game and Fall of the Samurai stand-alone expansion can be found on their respective Amazon pages and elsewhere. For those who are new to the game and wonder what this Gold Edition is missing, here is a list.

Similar to Total War: Rome

  • Summary: After playing Rome, Shogun got boring quickly. While there are some differences, the battle is much too similar for seasoned Rome players like myself.

For a total download time of something like 4 days. :( The game is fun to play and I enjoyed the game but the download time was hard to take.

Fun but a lot of bugs

Greg, Amazon
16 October 2012
  • Summary: I love the game, the new characters are a lot of fun and I think it is a great continuation of the shogun series. The game still has a lot of bugs. You have a 1/3 chance that the entire map turns to ocean after a battle and you then have to save and reload the campaign to fix it. From what I read online this is happening to a lot of people. The load times are unbearable, to load the game takes up to 5 minutes!

Least favorite of the series

chris, Amazon
22 August 2012
  • Summary: I have played every Total War game since MTW and this is my least favorite. I think the best part of the Total War games is the variety. In this, there is really none to speak of. I am familiar with and understand this part of Japanese history. I know you can't reall add other cultures but every single clan in the game is basically the same. Same units make the battles rather boring. In Rome TW you can go up against Greeks in one battle and then Gauls in the next.
