Product Description

Amidst a nation divided, it was Nobunaga¿s Ambition to silence the cries of war and usher in a new era of lasting peace. Step into the role of Feudal Japan¿s most powerful warlords and turn this magnificent vision into a reality. In the latest edition of this classic simulation series, the acquisition of knowledge and a firm grasp of technology are even more crucial to establishing the groundwork for the future of the country.

Only with the mastery of these three elements, the Iron Triangle, will Nobunaga¿s Ambition be realized and a nation united under one sword.

Overview :
It is Sengoku aka Warring States periods in Japan. The land is in turmoil and it is up to you to unite it.
I suggest going over the tutorial to grasp some basic command of the game. It should took around 45 min to 1 hour depending on how quick you complete it.

Now to the fun part:
There are 3 different mode to play on .
Unification - basically, you can choose any daimyo and conquered the whole land, the best and time consuming of all mode.

Local - same as unification but concentrate on local level like conquered Northern Japan, Southern Japan, and others.

Challege - Complete a certain objective in a given time . There are 2 challenge at the beginning but there should be more challenge unlock once you complete those.

On Unification and Local mode, they have same scenarios but once you complete those, they would unlock more scenario for later period.

Gameplay :
It is insanely hard on hardest mode, even normal mode already hard. Don't expect yourself to go out and capture an enemy castle right away like in ROTK 11(romance of the three kingdoms) which have 3D map and real time battle much like this one. You will lose terribly and once you do, expect bad thing to happen.

Building, so many building and land to build but you must build a district (core building) then you can build sub building. Like if you build a farm, you can build rice paddy, fishery and barrack around it. And yes, you do need lots of rice paddy for provision , also gold is important too.

War, the fun part and also the bad part, you don't carry your own resource when waging war, instead your provision (rice) is in the clan. You wandering around too long, you lose morale = unit destroy once morale reach 0.

This game is digital crack for strategy gamers. I picture myself beating old ladies up in the street to take their money so I don't have to work and can play this game longer and longer. It is by far the best strategy game I have ever played. It is simply amazing, especially if you plan the unification mode. It a very difficult game and the AI is very smart and challenging. But be warned you will become hooked. Still buy it!!

Its hip to be RTS, apparently. Or so at least is the treatment this game gets. Rather than just another Nobunaga's Ambition, this one gets a clock that allows you to play it in real time. Finally, no more waiting on other peoples turns between months.

The Graphics and sound- The graphics work but everything is about 4 pixels big. I played this on 52 inch tv and I still had to squint to see things at times. At the very least, they are functional. The map is HUGE so I can see where some graphics and processing limitations would take place. The sound is serviceable but nothing worthy of a grammy. I think there are like 4 tracks; 1 Demo intro, 2 normal peacetime, 3 War, 4 dialogue static cut text.

Game play and control- When you aren't besieging a castle, you are running your province. You set zones for agriculture, commerce, culture, science, trade and so on. You also research sceince and have research pacts with allies. Thats a new dimension on the series. It feels like this game is trying realy hard to be Age of Empires or Civilization but in a good way. You can also build defensive sturctues that turn your simjapan into a tower defense game. this is also cool. As you play, you will get a feeling for what province should do what and which ones should be manufacturing guns or horses while, which ones should be maxing out their commerce. Therein lies the fun of these games, Micromanagement!

Recruiting new samurai has always felt like HR busy work in NA but you need to keep an eye out for who is good at what strategies and technologies. You want your think tank guys to be spearheading your research and you almost as smarty guys constructing new zones for newly conquered cities.

Anyone who has played the Nobunaga's Ambition series of games knows what an elaborate, complex and beautifully strategic game they are getting into. For those who don't, please read other reviews to get a more general idea of what NA is all about.

That being said, players experienced in the NA series will most certainly be pleased with Iron Triangle. While a new time-lapse system offers a greater sense of time passing and the "iron triangle" approach to technology/culture/might turns some previous concepts on their head, the game in general stays true to the time-tested formula of high strategy and detailed top-down management. Players are likely to also enjoy the new twist on the battle system, which makes the battle field a detailed strategic resource in and of itself. Players who remember Rise to Power will be pleased with the newer, sharper and more colorful graphics. The artwork is also fantastic, with highly detailed portraits and stills, wonderfully era-accurate interiors and architecture, and more detailed models than in previous versions. The soundtrack to this game is gorgeous and never really gets old. One problem I do have is that text in the game can be quite small (even when compared to the previous Nobunaga's Ambition offerings on PS2), and so some words are difficult to read from a distance. The tutorials are extremely effective, and the in-game help system is detailed and generous with information about nearly every aspect of the game. This is a good thing; you'll most certainly be using both tutorials and in-game help to their fullest in order to gain any sense of mastery over this behemoth of a strategy simulation.
