A Hidden Classic

Jon, Amazon
10 August 2013
  • Summary: True strategy. If you can figure out the controls and the interface, which may take a little while, you can become a truly great commander. I love this series. The battles can range from massive to skirmishes and the campaign is relatively short, but it changes based on whether you win or lose your...

Fun Game, But Just Misses Perfection (3.5)

KC Charles, Amazon
11 February 2012
  • Summary: Kessen was the first RTS game I played for a console (as opposed to a PC), and it (almost) didn't disappoint. I won't discuss the story too seriously because frankly, the storytelling didn't really compel me (for those who are interested, Google "Battle of Sekigahara" and the general time period...

  • Summary: This is one my favorite games from the old ps2. I replayed this one over and over again. Its not to hard to master and the game is kinda short, but i`m a sucker for all things feudal japan and this game gave me a good fix.

Really good

  • Summary: If the goal behind Kessen was to create a spectacular-looking display of medieval Japanese warfare, it succeeds and then some. If the goal was to make a good real-time strategy game, however, Kessen fails.

Nice Intro To Japanese History and A Great Game Too!

Randy Schadel "Kurotatsunoshi", Amazon
7 February 2002
  • Summary: First off, this game has taken some critical hits for being too easy. Keep in mind that the first time through you are playing at INTRODUCTORY level (level 1 of 5), at which it is extremely difficult to lose. For a REAL challenge, try the skirmish battles at level 5..

One of the BEST GAMES EVER

A 12-year old gamer, Amazon
3 January 2002
  • Summary: Incredible game! Awesome graphics and great strategy. It does give people the wrong impression in the beginning, with the fairly-boring but nessicary tutorial. But once you get to the battles, be prepared to be blown away!

Underrated and misunderstood

L. Zhang, Amazon
30 November 2001
  • Summary: I think this game is underrated. It is actually a great game that suffers a little from misguided expectations. Koei never makes games that are truly mainstream -- this game comes about as close as it does (except Dynasty Warriors, but those aren't designed by Koei).

How can you go wrong!!

Jason Colucci, Amazon
9 November 2001
  • Summary: Ok! If you are fan of war simulators and have played the PC game Shogun: Total War then get ready to be blown away. Kessen is the best 17th century Japanese war sim I have played.
