It's huge improvement over its predecessors and from the very first moments of the game to the last battle of Kyoto, you will be captivated and wanting more. There is a sense of satisfaction when you finish the game at just how good the journey was but best of all, there is an engaging multiplayer mode that opens up Shogun 2 for additional play. It may be a war game but everything in the middle has been included, from your citizens to their religion, geishas to monks and an insightful tech tree, it all comes together perfectly. It's a game to die for!"
