The game was based on the teachings of Sun Tzu, the Chinese strategist, who believed in the indirect approach: search for comparative advantages, use your forces with economy, surprise and deceive, and only fight limited wars. The medieval Japanese setting (relatively small armies made up from a limited number of distinct units fighting on different terrains), served as the perfect substrate to implement these strategies.
I have played every single Total War game since and they were all a joy to experience - yet nothing surpassed to the first Shogun. Until now.
KNOW THY SELF, KNOW THY ENEMY. A THOUSAND BATTLES, A THOUSAND VICTORIES (Sun Tzu)
The gameplay has matured, deepened and acquired a number of new features, including some RPG additions. We now have Mastery of Arts, a tech tree branching into Bushido (warfare) and Chi (governance & finances). There are now hero units, inspiring the troops, going after the enemy general or turning the battle at that crucial point.
Generals are upgradable and modifiable, increasing their effectiveness and making them indispensable. The honorable death of a seasoned general will affect many aspects of your overall strategy and may prove the decisive point of the entire campaign. Which is why subterfuge is so important.Read more ›
But if you just love watching 20,000 odd guys running at each other with blades it's still awesome + you can buy a blood pack for 99p on Steam if you're into a gorey like play, you can watch guys heads get lopped off.
I bought this game well after its release due to not having a computer able to support it but when I got a newer laptop and could play the game it was only on lowest unit sizes and graphics but still the game looked amazing. Which only got better when I built my custom desktop.
The game is set in Medieval Japan during a time known as the Country at War. This was a time when the Japanese major clans were at war with each other and each sought to unify the country and bring peace, although with themselves in power. You are in charge of one of these clans, there are 11 clans to pick and each have their own bonuses, unique units, starting locations, difficulties and colours.
Several of these clans were only available via DLC but are included in this package.
The Gold Edition also includes the add ons which are the Rise of the Samurai and Fall of the Samurai, with all of the extra DLC. These redesign the map each time, give new clans to play as and new units to use.
The game is divided into two separate parts. The main campaign map is where you will build your settlements, units, move agents and armies, set finances and negotiate with other clans. The other part of the game is real time battles where you are able to control your army and fight the battle how you would want it fought by moving the units as you please. Mine has always been a wall of spears with archers behind whilst melee specialists flank the sides and cavalry goes for archers, general and retreating units.
There are a few faults with the game in my opinion but it isn't enough to ruin gameplay or the fun you can have with the game. Currently game is £21 but it has been out a few years now and two other games soon to be three are out so I think it is little too expensive still.
Based on the emotional connection and sheer enjoyment, this installation is the best, of what TW has to offer. Yes, the original Rome was ground breaking, but in Shogun 2 both graphics and gameplay come together. You will be invested in your characters, declare war upon enemies (who now have faces, so you can hate individual generals, daimyos) have super skilled ninjas etc.
Since Rome 2 was a failure of epic proportions, I have reverted back to playing Shogun 2. With the available mods, such as radious or darthmod, the game further improves (significantly! Whatch youtube videos for proof), . If you know the TW series, than you need no explanation. However, to those of you who do not, I highly recommend you start your journey with this piece. It will be worth it.

Had to order this as Steam wouldn't allow me to install from my original Shogun discs. Installed fine with only a small update from steam.Published 9 months ago by Steven Hand
Don't get it via disc does not let you download and they give you a set day for a return and if you can't do that one or any other ones well you've wasted money like me.Published 11 months ago by oliver kee
