Excerpt: I was anticipating the release of Total War: Shogun 2, the latest sequel to the Total War series from Creative Assembly, for some time. Though the game delivers beautiful battlefield graphics and a draw-dropping strategy map, it lacked variety upon release and failed to grab the attention of many of us for more than a couple campaigns. Therefore, many Shogun 2 gamers turned towards mods to fulfill their Sengoku war gaming needs.
Excerpt: Shogun: TW puts players in the role of an ambitious daimyo, or provincial warlord. In feudal Japan this was a powerful but dangerous position. The authority of the Imperial family had eroded centuries before and each daimyo was the de facto ruler of his own territory. Seems that game is partly inspired by Akira Kurosawa's wonderful film Ran and the book Shogun by James Clavell. Shogun:TW is fully 3D for gameplay reasons, not just to make it look better.

Summary: Shogun: Total War offered more than I expected. The potent combination of turn based strategy and real time battles makes for an event that is rarely matched in other games. More often, we are given one of the pieces of the puzzle, rather than an amalgamation of both. Since you can simulate the battles, all fans of turn-based and real time strategy should find something to like in Shogun: Total War.
Conclusion: But it isn’t just the visuals that are great about the battles, there is some very good AI in Shogun as well and a very comprehensive combat system. There are a number of way that you can set up your forces, combining them into larger units, giving them offensive or defensive stances, and a bunch of formations to boot.

Summary: Depuis la sortie de Rise Of Nations, quelques douze mois se sont écoulés soit la durée généralement constatée avant de voir apparaître la fameuse extension que tout jeu de stratégie à succès se doit de posséder.
