The supreme art of war.
As leader of one of twelve competing clans, use political ambition, military brilliance and ruthless cunning to unify 16th century Japan under one undisputed shogun: you. Master your clan’s unique martial strengths to triumph in spectacular real-time battles and dominate the turn-based campaign map.

Command samurai, ninja and warrior monks in spectacular real-time battles across snowcapped mountains, around fortified hilltop citadels and through fields garlanded with cherry blossom.
Assert your dominance over a turn-based campaign map by developing infrastructure, researching new technologies and using clever diplomacy and covert agents to bend rival clans to your will.
Act wisely in your negotiations, display mercy on the battlefield and follow the ancient ways of Bushido and Chi to earn honour, strengthen your generals’ bonds of loyalty and improve your status with other clans.
Refine your strategy with the help of an in-game encyclopaedia containing both gameplay information and historical detail, then execute it using an intuitive and beautiful interface inspired by Japanese woodcut prints.
Contains all add-on content packs including the Rise of the Samurai Campaign expansion, which challenges you to establish Japan’s first shogunate in a stand-alone campaign set 400 years before the events of the main game (Blood Pack not included).

Shogun 2 is probably the most complete overall Total War experience to date. The units are well-balanced, the campaign map demands careful strategic planning, and the overall aesthetics are clean and elegant. That's not to say that it's perfect. There are issues. But most of these minor quibbles are characteristic of the franchise and not shogun 2 in particular. While Rome 2 introduced some great new innovations, Shogun 2 is just more polished than its successor. Plus, Shogun 2 has those hilarious movies following the exploits of those oh so not sneak ninjas. As a side note, Fall of the Samurai is a standalone expansion and usually isn't offered with the Shogun 2 collection, at least on steam. The screenshots that would appear otherwise probably came from Dragon War battle pack (part of the collection), which allows owners of the base game to play with some Fall-type units in a series of set battles. That being said, Shogun 2 and Fall of the Samurai are different enough that they deserve to be marketed separately. All in all, shogun 2 is one of the best titles the genre has to offer, and I've sunk more hours into it than I care to admit.
