    If "Shogun" was comparable to a Katana. It would probably be the sharpest Katana of its time.

    When this game first came out I had instant flashbacks of Nobunaga's Ambition. A game that was nearly impossible for anyone who tried. "Shogun" was an instant classic by my standards. The combination of the strategic map... Read Full Review
