NA: SOI has close to 2000 historical officers with each having individual stats and tactics. This is a game that is a lot more tactical, utilizes different diplomacy features, and has so much more depth to it than TW S2. It has every historical clan in the game unlike TW S2. TW is more about managing individual battles and has some diplomacy. NA: SOI is more about managing your territory with roads, farms, crafts, population, clan, officers, and building an empire to unite Japan. Both games are about historical Japan that is about it. In reality they are totally different. It's like comparing Mario Cart to an in depth racing simulation like iRacing.
Using real historical events this game requires a lot of strategy and real time combat in order to destroy your enemies and take over feudal japan. This all sounds great but it lacks a lot of depth that you just want to see after being able to do things in games that are half the price or even more at times. the performance isn't very good either, i had issues getting the game to start because it doesn't like fraps for some reason and then it crashed a number of times. Its quite a let down considering i had heard a lot of praise about this franchise.
