Enjoying Shogun 2? - Page 2

post #11 of 66
Watched my brother playing, looks like a return to form. In other words it looks a lot like Rome Total War, which is a very good thing.

i was a BIG fan of Rome, and disappointed by Empire (was burnt by the bad game and how it was released) so buying this was a gamble but given that most user complaints seem to be about the lack of DX11 at launch (which i can live with) i decided to take the plunge. boy am i glad i did.

just got through *checks* 84 mins of gameplay and i really like it. i really really like it. the UI is so pretty and period specific, the gmae runs well, and it's fun. it's like they stripped the fluff that had been building from Empire and Napoleon, went back to basics, and refined it. really it feels fun and it's so immersive. i thought i'd only been playing for 30 mins LOL. tomorrow... tomorrow i'll probably be just playing.

i do think it needs AA though.

here are some pics.













i'm really enjoying it. hopefully that lasts . oh, and do not underestimate Bow Ashigaru

What kind of performance all you all getting?

at 1680 x 1050, everything maxed except for (SSAO and depth of field unticked)... maybe average 35 fps in battles... dips down to the 10-30 when zoomed in.
