Summary: a great real time strategy game that has huge scale battles of epic and cinematic preparations. Great to just sit back and watch the cinematic battles pal out. Also incorporates some light empire building that is solid but nothing innovational.
Summary: It was a truly groundbreaking game and even today it has great climate and still offers some decent strategic challenge, well balanced and simply very enjoyable. I started with this one and played every Total War game since.
Summary: Wow, just wow, this game is REALLY good. Of course its lacking some of the features of later total war games (such as battles being playable that aren't ridiculously hard to play) But for its time, this was beyond a masterpiece!
Summary: love it. just rebought it from online game vendor. best Â£8 i ever spent to get the gold edition. not greatly graphical but i never enjoyed the strategic battles, i just love the strategy map and moving large armies to impending doom or victory
Summary: DISCLAIMER: I am a Japan-buff and games based on the Sengoku period of the Shogunate Wars have to be really bad for me not to enjoy them. Now imagine how much I enjoyed one of the BEST strategy games ever!!!

Summary: I love feudal Japan. I've been editor for a magazine on feudal Japan for over ten years, have made kimono, and love watching Japanese movies for hours and hours. I have the Shogun board game, and play that quite a bit.
Summary: I have been playing Shogun for almost three weeks now. I've read most of the reviews and will comment on some of the common themes and add my own review. Shogun is an RTS game, and it is done better than Gettysburg or the Close Combat Series. The battle segments are well done.
Summary: Shogun is a great game. This game is divided into two modes, the turn-based strategy mode (like Civilisation and Risk) and the real-time battle mode (like C&C and Ground Control. This is actually the first time that this mix succeeds in one excellent game.
