Review: Skulls of the Shogun | GamingUnwrapped

Jake of GU Writes - "I remember a day when the turn based strategy genre was full of new ideas and great games. Fire Emblem, Final Fantasy Tactics, and more graced me with a new sense of empowerment and responsibility as I commanded my units. Playing those games became an obsession, as I fantasized about them even away from my gaming devices. Recently, the glorious turn-based strategy genre was reinvigorated by XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Following it were several other entrants in the genre, one of which is 17_Bit’s Skulls of the Shogun – a game that reminded me of those glorious feelings. While it may not be as obsessively engaging as XCOM or Fire Emblem, it is a great joy to play, and a testament to the strength of a genre that doesn’t get the credit it deserves." (Mobile, PC, Skulls of the Shogun, Xbox 360) 8/10
