Amazing mods for Vanilla game, superb edition of the Total War series,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Total War: Shogun 2 - Gold Edition (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
I am long time fan of the TW series, having played all editions from the original Shogun to Rome 2.
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.
