The game has a problem with SLI. I had the same issue.

The game runs totally maxed at 1080 with a single OC'd 480 like butter.

Turn it off, and you should be gold. =]

I like the game, but i'm starting to get bored after only 127 hrs. I've reached the point where I can play it for an hour, and then happilly walk away, rather than 5-6 hrs.

Main thing I don't like is the naval battles, not so much the actual battle, but on the tactical map, there isn't enough reason to actually get involved in battles, unlike empire, where it was a main feature. But then I guess that reflects real life. 18th century warfare was all about naval power, much as today it's about air power.

I thought it was but I never liked the time period of those games so I am biased

123 hours I have on shogun 2 according to steam. Beaten the game 4 times on various difficulties and using different tactics, lost a few games on the higher difficulty

I don't like the multiplayer aspect to much but it is still all right and the coop campaign functions correctly most of the time.

I like it just because of the nostalgia and how much I played the original Shogun.

Empire and Napolean are my favorite time periods. I like the European tactics of the time, and fighting like "gentlemen". Until my lancers hit you from behind and you all break and rout.

Demo is on Steam...I didn't really really like the unit control though I can't rmember why, but as far as I could judge from the demo it was better than the average RTS. My guess is the battles get really large fast, though that might be a good thing.

I am still playing King Authur the Role Playing game (which is an RTS) and once I get done with that single player RTS I think I will pick up Shogun 2 for multi-player
