What I love about this game is the fact that it's got huge battles of over 1,000 troops the naval battles are kinda boring though.
These are so much better then empire and the general speeches return and your generally IS NOT TO BE USED IN FIGHTING because he could be killed real easily the AI is fantastic as well
One thing I like about the sieges is that in shogun the castles are tired and that makes alto of choke points of where you can defend which all owes for more strategy in defense much more then Rome or medieval 2.
The most beautifully campaign map ever and I like the way you can Rotate the map 360 degrees to view the mountains from Avery angle.
The diplomacy has been much Improved before it was like " your boarders touch ours so I attack You were allied so I attack you.
the best and the most historically accurate TW game yet no screaming women or war dogs or gladiators here.
