5.0 out of 5 stars Good game! My son loves it!, 4 April 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Shogun 2: Total War (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Ok.
So, you may have to download the game from steam, but that adds security. Yeah sure, steam requires you to download it, but then you don't have to use the disc again to start it, it runs from your hard drive many people think its futuristic, you don't have to worry about disc damage, which I find beneficial.

The game play is excellent, so what if it's the same as all the other ones? Call of duty is always the same, Halo is always the same, Gears of War is always, the same.

Its the "GENRE" so it's bound to be similar, it's how they make the game, all game designers leave similarities between their games, it's like a trademark.

The only thing I am disappointed with in this game, is that unlike previous games, every faction has the same units (besides their single unique unit) but different abilities for those units. But this is not only historical (which the game is) but also on a smaller scale, Empire: Total War was worldwide, so there were many countries with unique units, this is one country, one nation, so you cant expect huge variety. This also balances the online features, on previous games, one faction would have a much more dominant role in terms of units. But because you play as a one faction, with similar units, it balances nicely.

The online is excellent in versus mode with a big learning curve, so is the co-op and co-op versus. Worth a buy!!
