4.0 out of 5 stars Addictively Fun! March 27, 2012

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Set in the late 19th century Japan, in years of the Boshin way, "Shogun 2: Fall of the Samurai" allows the players to choose a clan and join one side of the battle: Will you join the Emperor, and embrace the changing times and technology? Will you stay loyal to the Shogunate, who tries to retain the old ways of honor and the way of the sword? Or are you the bold type, who chooses to reject both their values, and start your own republic?

The new gameplay tweaks seen in "Fall of the Samurai" are unique to Shogun 2. Gone is the religion and rice supply mechanic, and they are now replaced by clan factions, and a modernization score. Steam ships and rifle units make their way into the game, causing a change in traditional battle formations and tactics. Modernizing quickly will allow you to build the bigger, faster, more accurate guns faster, but will cause unrest amongst the populace. After all, the people aren't used to cramming decades of Westernized Industrial Revolution within the span of a few years. Staying true to the old ways will certainly be a challenging task, and it's up to you to choose who emerges from the smoke: hot lead, or cold steel.

All praise aside, there are a few qualms with the new addition of Fall of the Samurai. Co-operative campaign desyncs are still a problem (although no longer as frequent as before), and many units lack the beautiful CG introduction and agent videos. Units speak in awkward Engrish, which result in sometimes funny, sometimes confusing situations.

Overall, Fall of the Samurai is a great game, albeit lacking a little in polish. If you're looking for a game that gives you the most bang for your buck, look no further!

4.0 out of 5 stars Last gasp of a dying empire? April 24, 2014
By JPG
Verified Purchase
So first, I own all of the Total War titles except Rome 2 - which I have no plans to purchase at this time - way, way too many negative reviews. I have experienced Shogun 1 and Medieval 1 in depth, Rome 1 somewhat, and now this one. I will eventually get around to the ones I have not yet experienced (MTW2, ETW, NTW). Total War was absolutely awesome in its first incarnations. Shogun 1 is still an incredibly deep and rewarding experience. Medievel 1 is also... except for the bugs that break games... *sigh*. Rome 1 is also very interesting and brought into play some additional elements that made it rich and engrossing. I need to complete the Rome 1 experience though in order to say much more about it. Since then? Dunno... I am concerned though.

Ok, on to review of Shogun 2. This is not meant to be a detailed review ala a game site, more a purchase review to see if you should buy or not. There are plenty of good, accurate reviews on game sites for those details.

So the good first. Its pretty, really, really pretty. Production values (as they say) are high. The strategy map comes alive and changes with the seasons. The new naval battles are fun, if a bit simple and sometimes buggy (the bugs tend to work in your favor though). Managing morale is key to winning these.

Now the medium. Land battles are also fun, but seem easier than the original. I dont think its just practice on my part, I think its something to do with the design, but I have not done sufficient research to put my finger on it yet. The interface is decent, some parts very nice, others not so much. Unit icons? ... not an art style I would have chosen. The agents were slightly improved but not enough from the original.

Now the bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it July 3, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It's so difficult to get a good and mostly accurate depiction of this time period anywhere outside of Japan, they really brought it all together and made it work in an amazing way. I was giddy with excitement to try out all of the new weapons, ships, trains (which are a bit of a pain), and agents. The change of focus definitely changes the gameplay a good deal, but this only served to streamline the experience. At least, that's what I found. It's possible that it's a bit on the easier side, and though the realm divide has changed for the better, I do think that you should still be able to make rival clans defect afterwards, especially the small ones. But this doesn't create the annoyance that it did in the other versions as much, so it wont stand in your way so badly.

I hope they're planning on going further with the timeline, I'd love to play Meiji Oligarchy: Total War. The new naval warfare is FAR more interesting, and the challenge is still there. You may need to re-learn certain things about the game because unlike Rise of, the counterparts in Fall of act significantly differently. As I mentioned, the train line is cool, and you'll want to be using it all the time, but it takes ages, or really good planning to actually take all of the provinces to set it up, and then takes quite a long time to use it to move troops.

Lastly, it's great there are mentions of bakumatsu heroes but I have a feeling the developers don't care for the personality of historical figures. For instance, playing as Tosa, you get control of Sakamoto Ryoma. Even after becoming the Imperial Vanguard, his loyalty is ridiculously low. It's funny because Ryoma was the person who first really thought up the idea of a national diet that controlled a democratic unified state under the imperial rule.
