"It's a tighter, more focused experience than the continental sprawl of "Empire" and "Napoleon", sacrifices none of their intricacy, and brings improved AI to the battlefield....

Your best bet if you want to have fun becoming the Shogun

Fanatical User

An amazing Total War game focusing on a very interesting historical setting, and becoming one of the best (if not the absolute best) strategy game focusing on the Sengoku time period. Between the mods available and the absolutely phenomenal battles you will see in the game, you will be hard-pressed to dislike the game if you are a fan of the genre or have an even passing interest in it. That being said, it is far from a perfect game. There are some pathing issues (although far lesser than the ones in previous titles), and there is little replayability value unless you really want more of the same, since, while differences between factions are noticeable, they are far from being great enough that you are expected to play the game differently.

after the playing the game for 2 campaigns, it works well with what it gives me and is just like every total war game but better, the only thing i hate is the vanilla realm divide, which is like a brick wall to my progress, good thing we have mods!

The definitive Total War game, SHOGUN 2 gives you complete control of your clan as you look to unite Japan. The sheer wealth of options available is dazzling and, as always, Creative Assembly have managed to take the series to new heights, continuously improving their flagship franchise in exotic locations.
