What Gamespot Users have to say about Total War: Shogun 2 - Fall of the Samurai

  • User Rating 9

    Fall of the Samurai takes the familiar formula of the original game, and just improves it in almost every way possible.

    Fall of The Samurai, the latest expansion of Total War: Shogun 2, takes us back to the late feudal period of Japan and presents us with one simple task (well, maybe not that simple) – choose sides in ...

    Takes TW and adds rifles, railroads, coastal bombardment, and a better advancement tree.

    Fall of the Samurai is an amazing game. It combines the best of melee combat with the best of Napoleonic style warfare.

    Fall of the Samurai is an amazing game. It combines the best of melee combat with the best of Napoleonic style warfare. For only 30 dollars you get a completely redone campaign with new ui even. This ...

    This game is set during the the late 1800s where the western powers start to influence the Japanese way of life but most importantly their warfare. This game has a new campaign map with it being exten...

    It is a great game. I bought it for me and a friend of mine so we can play coop but...

    Rated on April 22, 2012 by wm_maw

    Samurai, guns, and explosions. What's not to like?! Obviously these aren't the only things in this great game.
