Hardcore Gamer Writes "Nobunaga's Ambition: Awakening isn't casual friendly, but like most endeavors can be a worthwhile game for those willing to invest the time."
The more experienced and patient of strategy fans are sure to enjoy the newest entry in one of Japan’s longest-running gaming franchises, but newcomers might struggle to get into it due to its deep learning curve and conspicuously limited tutorials.
WTMG's Oliver Shellding: "I personally wouldn’t return to this game in the future, even if they do manage to bring over the Japanese audio so it doesn’t sound like a 70s martial arts dub. The amount of detail is intense, the campaigns are especially long, and the exceptional animated sequences are few and far between from simply staring at a small map and even smaller menus to do a multitude of tasks. This game is definitely for someone, and, if you’re even remotely interested in Japanese history, this is an incredible feat of a title. But it’s too big of an ask for too little of a reward. I’ll let history stay history."
