In Total War: Shogun 2 you choose from one of 9 (10 with Ikko-Ikki dlc) clans, each with their own unique traits and skills and each with their own RPG-style warlord to lead them. Use a mixture of diplomacy, political manoeuvring, province building, research and special agents such as Ninja assassins or Geisha spies to get your enemies exactly where you want them. An intuitive user interface and a lovingly-created, complex and detailed campaign map make it both easy and enjoyable to build and run cities, recruit and move troops and issue commands – both noble and dishonorable, all with the aim of mastering enemy forces and seizing their lands.

one of the first RTS games i've ever played and a real good one too

A fairly 'lean' strategy game in all regards, which is both its strongest point and also the thing that eventually makes me leave it for a while. Aside from the setting, the game is really carried by how satisfying the fundamental spear/bow/cavalry mechanics are to execute.

Battles are a lot of fun, the map strategy part not so much. Diplomacy is really gamey and rudimentary which is fine from a sort of setting-agnostic game design point of view but given the setting I'd have preferred some more involved choices on that front.

The economy and research mechanics kind of start feeling more or less fake the more you figure the game out. "Just produce more yari ashigaru" frequently ends up being not only the best decision militarily (lowering the usefulness of researching higher tier units) but also economically as well (lowering the usefulness of both research and investing in economy buildings). I know you don't have to play optimally on every difficulty mode, but I don't like that like 70% of the higher-tier unit roster feels like extravagance rather than upgrades you're desperate for.

Para amantes de campanhas japonesas, este jogo lhe faz sentir como se fosse o proprio oda nobunaga. Possui o combate entre unidades de infantaria mais bonito da franquia
