Preview: Sengoku; the Total War killer | Digitally Downloaded

Paradox Interactive had guts to green light Sengoku.

Luckily, the game is shaping up to be far more interesting than what the Total War game was.

Hey, I love Paradox's strategy games, but how is this a Total War "killer"?

Its not even in the same genre, Sengoku is 100% Turn Based Strategy, while Shogun 2 Total War has real time battles.

An entirely different game, just because its in fedual Japan doesn't make it in direct competition with Shogun.

Some sites are desperate for hits.

Sengoku isn't a turn based strategy game, actually. It's real time, though you have the ability to pause the game.

The similar setting and concept to the game is going to draw comparisons to the Total War games. It's inevitable. Dig beneath the surface and yes, of course it's a very different game, but people need to play the game first to realise this, don't they?

I wouldn't want anyone to miss out on this game on the mistaken assumption that it doesn't have the same brand power that Total War games do.
