Fun for Paradox Fans only.

This game is just like many other paradox games less on the action, more about the tactics, political and management of a nation or clan for this example. If you love Civilization , the Total War series and star craft mainly because of the battle factor you will not be a fan of many of paradoxes works.

I love this mainly because i have Japanese blood and its fun to mess around with a lot of the history , and maybe even setting a name for your family even though in real life they were treated terribly.

Sengoku is a fun game, for those who can love the paradox style, i would sure like more options available in this game, although i feel the time period isn't very good for a paradox game due to the fact that the era is called the Warring Periods.

Good fun for Paradox fans

This game is fun if you're a fan of Paradox's other strategy games like Europa Universalis. The mechanics are quite similar with changes to fit the period and place.

This game is huge in terms of controlling a samurai family, every Daimyo/family can be controlled, can award loyal samurai's or ones with good stats a fief(s) or daimyoship, has detailed historical map of Japan during the warring states period, has up to 4 Guild slots to strengten your land or armies and so on

Overall it is simpler than EU and Victoria. Managing your clan and family is one of the most distinctive features. I've enjoyed it.

A precursor to CK2

This is a good game made by Paradox, but it's not amongst their best. It plays similarly to Crusader Kings 2 because Paradox used the game as somewhat of a features test for CK2, particularly in the form of character-to-character interaction. When you play, you control a Japanese family and have to use war, intrigue, and marriage to build up your territory. Unlike most other Paradox games, though, this one has a victory condition: have 50% of Japan under your rule. Because of this, the game tends to focus more on military matters than other Paradox games (especially CK2).

It's a solid game, and if you're a fan of the Japanese historical setting, then you should pick this up. The Total War: Shogun games take place around the same historical period, but they are very different games. There are no playable battles here... only top-down grand strategy. I personally prefer that, but your mileage may vary. Either way, if you've enjoyed other Paradox games, then you'll like this one, but you'll probably end up playing Crusader Kings 2 more, as it is a bigger and deeper game.

One of Paradox' finest

Excellent grand strategy game with elements of an RPG. This is a good buy for anyone who plays the main Paradox franchises. Basically, this game plays like a Crusader Kings 2 without naval elements, but with a clear goal; unite Japan.

Interesting game

All Paradox grand strategy games are very, very good. You can control almost everythig your clan do and it takes a long time for you to make the best decisions. Anyhow, when your armies are well equipped and trained they'll be unstoppable!

Sengoku is lot like Total War: Shogun 2 BUT is also has a lot of differences. The gameplay, for instance, is completely different. Maybe because of the historical period, all the units are, sort of, the same.

The challenges are difficult but you'll feel really great when you conquer and destroy your rivals! Sengoku is an very good grand strategy game, you should take a look on it!
