i never played Shogun but i played the hell out of Rome and Medieval II, and when ever i get a good bit of time free i play either Empire or Napoleon, depending on the mood.

But i've liked all of the Total War Games, though Empire is a bit difficult while the revolution is going on, Although i am thinking of restarting since Washington was killed like in the second battle i fought.

Empire is so underrated. It with Darthmod is the best TW experience you can have, it's like a real time polished Europa Universalis 3.

I've been playing a ton of Third Age for Medieval 2 lately as well. Mods can fix even the worst TW games, but here's to hoping Shogun 2 is great out of the box. DX11 and 50+ thousand man battles sounds so appealing.

Is that really going to be the determining factor? I've yet to play a game where I notice.

Man, was anyone able to play the historical battle easily? The moment I was betrayed, I got killed by them.

Thanks for the post
I dl'd the demo, and there is actually a tutorial that shows you the campaign and most if not all of the new features for S2:TW in both the campaign and the battle map.

yeah its a tough battle, but once you play through enough times to develop a good strategy and get used to all the new units then it gets a bit easier. it really annoying though when the camera gets yanked away from you just to have some guy yell at you and say that your your ally is a lazy douche.

YES. i love both of those mods for both of those games, they are simply awesome. Darthmod is almost an entirly different game then empire, and who doesnt love reliving all of their LotR fantasy moments in a TW game

TW games have an amazing mod community that continues to add life to the series with every new mod.

After playing the short campaign I managed to do a lot better in it. I thought I was about to win until I had about 400 units rout (COWARDS). Was down to 3 stacks of my spear men, 2 archers and 2 samurai units. Had my samurai flank while the spear men charged head on and had my archers pelting them with arrows.

I apparently didn't time this all to well though since my samurai were fighting off some other units before getting to the last remaining ones so by the time they arrived to flank my spear men and archers had fled whilst only maintaining minimal casualties.

I think I will try again later tomorrow and win for sure this time.
