A MUST BUY, 20 Sept. 2004
SHOGUN TOTAL WAR is a brilliant game. for a fiver its amazing and the graphics are just superb for what you pay for. the game is set around JAPAN in 1542 (which increases through your campaign) and is divided by different warlords (DAIMYOS). each one is setting a goal to become SHOGUN of japan and rule all the lands of which other warlords once ruled. you start from the rags and work your way up with higher technoligy from sword to musket and skills as you select your certain type of clan which specialise in different warriors. e.g ninja , no-dachi. As you wage through your campaign you start to command thousands of troops at an epic scale and skill.
And you get other little games like HISTORICAL BATTLES and other campaigns , plus you can set time back when a great MONGOL ruler called kublai khan attacks the shores of japan and wants to rule over the samurai in the 1200 hundreds.
A GAME WHICH WILL KEEP YOU OCCUPIED FOR HOURS.
