If you're a fan of the Japanese era/setting (like moi) then i don't have to say anymore.
but if you haven't played many strategy games, then..well let's talk about that.
the game is split into 2 modes, Real time battle and Turn based mode
you can go the whole entire game without going into battle mode,
but it gets boring.
Strategy gmes aren't usually like this.
Command and Conquer: real time shooting/command troops
Civilization: Create an empire and take over the world
Total War: turn based/real time battle.
so if you like the whole idea, then yeah this game is most definitly for you.
but if not..then you might want to try a game like Way of the Samurai. (which is just a hack and slash)
which are set in the Sengoku era and such. but if you don't mind controlling people/armies..then sure!
watch some Gameplay and then decide for yourself. :)
