4.0 out of 5 stars Top of the Total War Trophy Closet April 4, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
This review is for the original Shogun 2 Total War and not for Limited or other special versions of the game. I haven't played Limited Edition or any other version so am not qualified to critique those. I also do not engage in multiplayer so I have nothing to say about multiplayer. If you're looking for critiques of any of the aforementioned then this review will likely be of no use to you.

Also, thusfar I have only played the game on Normal difficulty. I cannot speak to potential improvements or degradations at higher difficulties.

On with the review...

Shogun 2 Total War from the Total War series is absolutely the best. It absolutely blows Empire out of the water (a game with which I was not very pleased). When Empire came out I believed CA was going in the wrong direction with the series. Whatever they were doing, Shogun 2 definitely put the series back on a fair heading.

I will start with the negative:

AI:

Land Warfare: I haven't noticed a difference to the AI performance on the Battle Map. Despite what I've read I've not seen the AI attempt to flank me with cavalry. The cavalry charges straight ahead at my missile troops everytime. The AI melee infantry does not allow their missile troops adequate time to wear down my own missile troops or my line units. They march right through their arhcers ranks and conduct a frontal assault. To put it simply, if they transferred the AI capability from M2TW or ETW to S2TW you wouldn't know. They're all the same.

Naval Warfare: The AI is no better than it was in ETW. In fact I'd say on the Naval side of things it got worse. In ETW the enemy attempted to maintain some semblance of a formation as if fought.

5.0 out of 5 stars KAN-ZEN March 15, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Standard
About a decade ago Shogun: Total War was the masterpiece that launched one of the best Strategy simulation franchises in gaming history. It was a perfectly balanced game that combined turn-based strategic decisions with real time battles in a beautiful interface made in the style of medieval Japanese artworks.
The game was based on the teachings of Sun Tzu, the Chinese strategist, who believed in the indirect approach: search for comparative advantages, use your forces with economy, surprise and deceive, and only fight limited wars. The medieval Japanese setting (relatively small armies made up from a limited number of distinct units fighting on different terrains), served as the perfect substrate to implement these strategies.
I have played every single Total War game since and they were all a joy to experience - yet nothing surpassed to the first Shogun. Until now.

KNOW THY SELF, KNOW THY ENEMY. A THOUSAND BATTLES, A THOUSAND VICTORIES (Sun Tzu)
The gameplay has matured, deepened and acquired a number of new features, including some RPG additions. We now have Mastery of Arts, a tech tree branching into Bushido (warfare) and Chi (governance & finances). There are now hero units, inspiring the troops, going after the enemy general or turning the battle at that crucial point.
Generals are upgradable and modifiable, increasing their effectiveness and making them indispensable. The honorable death of a seasoned general will affect many aspects of your overall strategy and may prove the decisive point of the entire campaign. Which is why subterfuge is so important.

5.0 out of 5 stars Total War at its best! August 30, 2011
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
For me, after a brilliant start with Shogun, Medieval, and Rome, the Total War series got too bogged down with a glut of unit types. What I liked about the first three was that the simplicity of tactical knowledge required - pikemen > horsemen > archers > pikemen - to play the game did not create a simplistic battlefield. In the tutorial for Shogun, when a depleted squad of archers on a hill take out a rushing unit of samurai, the game shows its intention. To me, the Total War series aims to be intuitive wargaming, and Shogun 2 is the best one of those yet.

First, a brief introduction for non Total War players - and this is the first game in the series that they should be picking up. Shogun 2 is three games in 1: a Turn-Based overworld map (Think Civilization), a squad-based Real-Time-Strategy battle system (The best in the business), and a unit-based RTS Naval battle system. You start by picking a clan, your goal is to take over Japan. There are also multiplayer modes, but they are reorganizations of the three basic engines above. It's all very simple, and instead of that being a poor choice for the designer, instead of that making a game without depth, in Shogun 2, that's exactly what they need.

When other game designers say, "We aimed for a streamlined, simplified experience," I groan and take that game off of my Looking Forward To list. But when Creative Assembly said the same, I became more intrigued, having been disappointed in the series' last couple of games. They had become overly-complex with too many units to keep track of, and too much going on for the player to be able to focus on what makes the Total War games great - intuitively building your empire and crushing your enemies.

This game has everything you would want from a Total War game, where you have large number of options of how to achieve victory while also having very specific factions.
