About this game

Developer: Creative Assembly
Content Rating: Teen


The player plays the role of both the clan leader and general, alternating between the campaign, where the player manages his land and armies turn by turn, and the battles, where the player takes control of the army on the battlefield in real-time. In the campaign, the player needs to oversee the development of settlements, military production, economic growth, and technological advancement. The armies and units are organised and moved around the stylised campaign map by the player to carry out battles with other factions. In addition to fighting, the player is able to engage in diplomacy, political maneuvering and the use of special agents to gain the upper hand. Ninja and geisha are also present in the game as assassins and spies.

With Shogun 2, Creative Assembly proves it can move forward by taking a step back. There may not be any truly revolutionary additions here, but the tightly-focused map, extensive streamlining, and rich opportunities for strategic gameplay inject a welcome freshness into the series. Considering that its only glaring downside is the unstable multiplayer implementation, Shogun 2 may very well rank as the best of the Total War games.

Shogun 2 demonstrates an admirable re-setting of Total War's sights. It's a tighter, more focused experience than the continental sprawl of Empire and Napoleon, sacrifices none of their intricacy, and brings improved AI to the battlefield. In the final count, it's consistently thrilling, grand in scope, surprisingly atmospheric, and bloody hard to put down.

Shogun 2's delightful and all-encompassing world, coupled with its excellent production values, artful interface, deep strategic campaign, and thrilling real-time battles, makes it more impressive than its predecessor was a decade ago. Its only real flaw is the stability issue that occurred almost exclusively during multiplayer campaigns. Overall, Shogun 2 is just about everything you could want from a strategy game and is easily the apex of the Total War series up to this point.
