About

MASTER THE ART OF WAR
In the darkest age of Japan, endless war leaves a country divided. It is the middle of the 16th Century in Feudal Japan. The country, once ruled by a unified government, is now split into many warring clans. Ten legendary warlords strive for supremacy as conspiracies and conflicts wither the empire. Only one will rise above all to win the heart of a nation as the new shogun...The others will die by his sword.
Take on the role of one Daimyo, the clan leader, and use military engagements, economics and diplomacy to achieve the ultimate goal: re-unite Japan under his supreme command and become the new Shogun – the undisputed ruler of a pacified nation.
Game Features Total War: SHOGUN 2 features enhanced full 3D battles via land and sea, which made a name for the series, as well as the tactical campaign map that many refer to as the heart and soul of Total War. Featuring a brand new AI system inspired by the scriptures that influenced Japanese warfare, the millennia old Chinese “Art of War”, the Creative Assembly brings the wisdom of Master Sun Tsu to Total War: SHOGUN 2. Analysing this ancient text enabled the Creative Assembly to implement easy to understand yet deep strategical gameplay.
  • CONQUER the islands of Japan in the 16th century. Lead vast armies of samurai and fleets of giant warships into breathtaking real-time battles.
  • BUILD your kingdom on the inviting and turn-based campaign map. Wield economic, political, and military power to amass wealth, armies, and influence.
  • SCHEME according to the "Art of War" by Sun Tzu. Use fire and siege tactics, spies and assassins to adapt to the ever-changing conditions on the battlefield and throughout your kingdom.
  • BATTLE ONLINE and experience the main campaign in two-player mode. Then join epic online battles with up to 8 players and lead your online army to glory in special campaigns.

Very interesting game with the Blood DLC a Must!

But it is also very difficult in my Opinion to have a lot of fun;-)

In my Opinion, the best Game in the Total War Series so far. If you like Strategy Games you should definitely take a look at this Game.

Shogun 2 Total War, like its two Predecessors, is great, as are the Rise of the Samurai and Fall of the Samurai Extensions. What is already emerging here, however, is the Evolution of CA's DLC polo towards expensive DLC, unfortunately.

This Total War Game is clearly the best besides Fall of the Samurai. In My Opinion, better than the new Rome 2. Even after over 300 Hours it is still Fun without End to drive the Enemy off its Castles ^ ^.

Still not Boring After almost 140 Hours of play. Versatile Possibilities and exciting Battles. The Extensions bring more Fun and also have a Variety of new Units. Everyone likes the Strategy and likes a Game of the Total War Series, Shogun will definitely love.

Fantastic Game! The gamergate/anti-SJW crowd has become everything they supposedly used to hate about SJWs, and what's sad is that they can't even see it. Pervasive outrage and overreaction? Check. Attempting to influence game content to fit their ideological views? Check. Constant sense of grievance and victimhood? Check. "Censoring" the creative process by calling for boycotts/review-bombing games? Check. It's almost self-parody at this point.

A Very good Strategy game that revolves around Japan mann experiences great Battles up to 40 Units per faction man learns to quickly find Himself in the Battle range Positively: Big Battles it is easy to find in the Battle with the Dlc Dragon War Battle Pack modern Time Many Mods & Maps from the Workshop Negative: Units react far too late or do nothing When I say there that unfortunately happens very often Archers bug: Fire Arrows last short and the unit does not shoot because the time is short Farzit: Large one succeeded It totally was game unfortunately reactions time but can recommend mann and has already fun to watch the bloody animations with the blood pack
The game feels not like a new part in the Total War franchise. It is more like a revamped first part to be honest. It has a bunch of new features and fancier graphics but that’s pretty much just it.
