    Turn-based strategy given the "Angry Birds" treatment. Simple fun with limited depth (I'm perplexed how other reviews claim otherwise). Single-utility units and single digit math. If you're a fan of the genre, this is a dumbed-down incarnation that might provide a few hours of entertainment. Strictly for novices of strategy games or light-hearted fun with friends.

    This game is just solid fun. It has enough depth to make the hardcore happy but is easily accessible by new players. The humor is definitely there.
    This game feels like it takes whatever made castle crashers fun and woven it in wax on and wax off style.
    The online lobby system needs more work. It took me a minute last night to figure out you have to keep searching to find a game..don't

    The online lobby system needs more work. It took me a minute last night to figure out you have to keep searching to find a game..don't just let the search idle.

    Also the game is new and not many people are playing it online yet. Xbox definitely needs to advertise this game.

    Have run into a couple glitches like where at the start of the match the game ends quickly and the host automatically wins. I'm assuming this will be corrected. This game is a blast. You owe it to yourself as a gamer to have this.

    Oh and it has asynchronous play; so you can play turn based against other Xbox players, windows 8, and windows phone 8 players....that's just sweet.

    Skulls of the Shogun is a nice turn based strategy with a positive attitude and enough depth. [May 2013]

    Skulls of the Shogun is irreverent, challenging and, most of all, fun. It masterfully mixes humor with well-balanced gameplay to keep players coming back for more. If strategy is your thing, this is a must-buy.

    Accessible, surprisingly innovative and completely engrossing. [Issue#95, p.87]
