What Gamespot Users have to say about Total War: Shogun 2
Shogun 2: Total War is great, gorgeous, entertaining and wonderful, yet i still can't say "this is THE game".
I have been a fan of the Total War Series since ever but i have only played Rome: Total War, some of the first Shogun Total War plus Medieval 2 Total War and I just started to play Shogun 2: Total War about three days ag... Read Full Review4 of 6 users found the following review helpful
After being drowned in first person shooters for YEARS now and games with little thought, this was completely refreshing! I'd thought RTS style games were dead, with each installment of Command and Conquer getting more r... Read Full Review3 of 8 users found the following review helpful
Beautiful campaign and battle maps, cool fighting, smooth, but oh so shallow. The game, sadly, gets boring, and quick.

For all the effort put into this meal, just a little more gravy would have made it perfect...
Just started playing it. It is beautiful visually, and deep, but there are a couple of features the lack of which disappoint. The naval system seems a bit limited. While acknowledging that at the time Japan was *not* a p... Read Full Review1 of 5 users found the following review helpful
They've polished it, tweaked it, and refined it...and it's great. Perfect? No. Are there still things I'd like to see added. Yes. But it's still great and alot of fun. It's certainly my favorite of all the total war g... Read Full Review3 of 5 users found the following review helpful
Clever, beautiful and brutal, but strangely dissapointing...
I find myself conflicted when trying to summarise this game. Everything appears to be correct, everything appears to run well.. but something doesn't feel right. Thats not to say I haven't enjoyed playing it, but there i... Read Full Review9 of 12 users found the following review helpful
