Summary: My biggest complaint would be once again, they need to get back to the basics. Medieval II was, in my opinion the last GREAT Total War. The Empire, Napoleon, ect... really went downhill and unfortunately, Shogun 2 is right along the same lines. The complications of playing the large strategic mag need to be kept to a min, b/c the tactical battles are what makes the game fun. In Shogun 2, the battles are good.
Total War: Shogun 2 - Limited Edition (PC): Technically brilliant, failed to engage
26 September 2012
Summary: I have been a fan of the Total War series since the first Medieval game (I missed out on the original Shogun). There's something about the mix of micromanagement strategic planning and fast paced battles that appeals to me. With this in mind I bought this game soon after it was released. It immediately became apparent that the studio had worked hard on improving the graphics since the (already beautiful) last outing.
Pros: Graphically stunning, improved ai, new innovations
Cons: lacks engaging storyline, little difference between clans
Excerpt: "The game itself like most total war games is fun and interesting to play, however after a while you do tend to find yourself bored and restricted by the very limited numbers of units and the slightly repetative battles. The game seems like a slightly dumbed down version of medieval total war with alot less units and versatility. So at the moment unlike with most of the total war games there are no expansions (due to being so new) and no really good ...
Pros: Fun, Beautiful animation, Good Realism and as always historically accurate .
Cons: Lack of Units, Repetative Battles . No Decent mods at the moment .
Excerpt: Sinceramente, um dos piores da Série, e sou viciado em Total war, eles cagaram o jogo todo, desde gráficos com estilo colorido de bonecos da nicklodeon, até a jogabilidade que foi queimada de erros, por isso digo, se quer jogar um Total war jogue Medieval 2 ou Rome, pq realmente esse Shogun deixou a desejar como o Empire... o que não me deixou dar nota zero foi pela história e pela batalha marítima que ficou um menos ruim...
Summary: J'ai acheté ce jeux car il a bonne réputation comme étant un super jeux de stratégie. Étant un grand fan de Age of empire 2 pour l'époque. Je me suis dit aller pourquoi pas au vu des avis il serait aussi bien que Age of Empire 2 à l'époque, et qui pour reste toujours le meilleur jeux de stratégie. En fait un jeux de stratégie très difficile à prendre en mains après 30heures de jeux. Il n'y pas de conseille pour débuter pour pourvoir gagné d façon ou d'une autre.
Pros: je cherche .
Cons: difficile à prendre en main et trop répétitif .
