skagit | May 11, 2013 | Review of Total War: Shogun 2 - Fall of the Samurai

I bought Fall of The Samurai as a Total War fan-boy who happened to skip Shogun 2. As a result, I am dying to buy Shogun 2. Fall of the Samurai contains all the features I would have hoped to have found in Empire. The AI is fairly competent, and better: aggressive. Rather than stay in formation and take shot after shot from your artillery like in past games, the AI takes the fight to you, even if it's not to their advantage. The graphics are a major improvement, and the map, while more linear feeling than previous installments, is beautiful and full of strategically important locations and resources.
