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.
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...
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.
Summary: Fun, a little over the top but a nice addition that should have been thrown in the game but for a dollar can't really complain. Iv'e seen a couple decapitations and a lot of blood squirting upwards from vertical slices that get my monitor messy but luckily I watch dexter so easy to clean up.
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.
Summary: This addon to Total War: Shogun 2 is only moderatly successful. I had trouble getting into the game, whereas the original immediately captured me. For some reason, the dual clan leaders is distracting. I have played the original several times but could barely get through "Rise of the Samurai" once.
