Shogun: Total War is the first instalment of the Total War series that would go on to create an intriguing new procession of mixed genre games. Shogun is set in the Feudal Era of Japanese history and the overall premise is simple. You must take control of one of the several warring factions battling for ultimate power in Japan and defeat all the others that stand in your way. I have to say, slaugh... read more

"Year of release: 2000 Why? The Total War series continues to evolve, but concentrates mainly on the European theatre now. These games are fine, but I doubt there are many people who would disagree with how game-worthy samurai are and how interesting they perform as warriors! Just because they came first, Creative Assembly seems to have forgotten them. I'd love to see Shogun given a modern make over. What would I change? The unit cap in Shogun was quite frustrating, I'd at least make it higher "

The first aspect of Shogun to master is the 'world map' screen. It is in fact a map of Japan split into various territories, each governed by different warlords, your own army or masterless rebels. You can only see territories adjacent to your own provinc” read more
