"A great wargame" - By Shawn (Chicago, IL, United States)
I read some reviews on line of this game and it seemed a bit daunting at first. I watched a few youtubes as well ( make sure to search for gameplay to get a real feel for it ) and I'd have to say I'm blown away. I've been looking for a wargame with modern units ( though this is set in the cold war era so not today modern ) and this really fits the bill. It's got a great multiplayer segment, as well as skirmish, however with only a single AI opponent. Speaking of the AI it's quite challenging, I've played a few skirmishes and its always been challenging, the campaign is also great moving you though some different alternate history during the cold war era. All and all a great buy, the game sync's with steam as well and it was seamless. Runs well in windowed mode, ... full review
if you are an rts fan or simply like modern warfare, you have to get this. to me, its the most interesting take on the rts genre, which has been kinda stale gameplaywise,except for the likes of coh, dow2.
the game is set in the late seventies to mid eighties, the height of the cold war between nato and warsaw pact. you play either side, and develop your deck from hundreds of military units from tanks to planes to infantry, etc. this is a land based battle however so there are no ships. deck building to me is one of the funnest parts of the game. here you can choose the make up of your army. you may opt for a generic nato army or you may choose a more nation focused, specialist deck that gives you a few advantages and limitations, a british armored batallion for example.
Hello fellow gamers! World in Conflict is a strategy game, which totally busted my expectations. it has campaign and multiplayer modes. My favorite is multiplayer. If you are fan of strategy games which have goooood graphics and gameplay buy this game!
One of the best strategy games I have played. I have not played much online yet, but I have loved playing against AI. The campaign is nothing great, but you dont buy this game for the campaign. You buy this game for online play or with friends via lan. Easy download with no hiccups. Very pleased with game and purchase.
I agree with 3D Viking's statements, with a slight tweak.
I would say that if you have the original game, getting this complete edition is really not worth it. But, if you are new to the game, this complete package is well worth it!
This game has a very simple/slick interface, fantastic graphics and sound. Don't expect this to be the COH series, where you have to base build, and take many little control points (circles). This is more of a real time tactical game. The SP campaigns are fun, but MP, especially where you communicate with your teammates, makes the game very fun. Do not look to this game for using the deep reaches of your intellect, or to have your micromanagement needs met. For that go to Men of War, and its clunky interface.
The second downloadable content pack for "Total War: SHOGUN 2", Fall of the Samurai deals, naturally, with the end of the samurai era and the beginnings of modern Japan.
Fall of the Samurai takes place during the Boshin War of 1868. Unlike the Sengoku period of the default game, which was about warlords seeking their own power, the Boshin war is a dedicated "civil war" between those who support the Shogun and those who support the Emperor. The Imperial side is traditionalist, supporting a return to the old ways and the isolation of Japan. The Shogun's side is modernist, favoring greater trade with the outside world. While each side is made up of multiple areas and factions, the two greater sides are very concrete and meaningful in the game.
Like the standard game and the Rise of the Samurai DLC, "Fall of the Samurai" has its own aesthetics ... full review
