Shogun 2 review

 
My thoughts on TW Shogun 2:

As a huge Total War fan and a total Japan fan, I couldn't wait for this game. Especially because the only Total war game I never played was the first Shogun. The graphics are very similar to Empire TW.. well probably because it's the same engine; but the units seem much more detailed and more individualistic.

At first I wanted to start the campaign with the Oda clan, but this gets pretty hardcore, as you start in the middle of the map surrounded by enemies. So I switched to the Shimazu and became Shogun in 110 Rounds. Oldschool Total War gamers should start with difficulty hard, as the enemies are just to weak, even if they combine their powers against you.

Likes:
- Huge map (even though it's only Japan)
- Generals/Agents have a reasonable skilltree
- As allways very tactical (terrain has a bigger role now)
- Everything is very detailed and historically correct (as far as I can tell)

Dislikes:
- The variety of units isn't as big (as Rome for example; but well it's only medievil Japan)
- It's hard to use all diplomatic methods in some helpful way (other clans aren't very talkative)

All in all, this is a great new part in the Total War series; even though I haven't played the new and probably better online mode. If this review was somehow helpfull or simply interesting - feel free to follow
