Skulls of the Shogun Review - The Digital Fix

Ask a hardcore strategy gamer to name a turn-based tactical title set in Japan, and they’d probably offer up Total War: Shogun 2 and Romance of the Three Kingdoms before starting to struggle. Japan is no stranger to tactical play but given its remarkable feudal history it’s surprising how little the period is mined for gaming gold, and of the few that do emerge, fewer still make it to western shores. 17-Bit’s debut Skulls of the Shogun comes to this near-deserted table with several bold hooks: catch the eye, simplify the numbers and, most importantly, make the game look and feel accessible. There’s an interesting twist thrown in too - the game’s entire cast are dead. (PC, Skulls of the Shogun, Xbox 360) 8/10
