    An excellent turn-based strategy game taking place in from feudal Japan that will delight all field tacticians, who miss a more exotic battlefield and different warfare styles. [Issue#284]

    Sengoku Jidai: Shadow of the Shogun continues from where Pike and Shot: Campaigns left off, introducing a rarely visited setting of feudal Japan, including battles in the Korean peninsula. The simple, but robust turn-based game mechanics, along with appealing visuals make the battlefield shine, but the thin campaign layer leaves a lot to desire. [Aug 2016]

    An in-depth wargame featuring the titutar Sengoku Jidai, the Japanese invasion of Korea and some other interesting scenarios. Overall, a very good battle simulator.

    Without being too vague and wishy-washy, this is a good game that is purely good because it doesn’t throw ton’s of information at you, it doesn’t overwhelm you with options and situations.

    Sengoku Jidai: Shadow of the Shogun is a turn-based strategy game that is very demanding for the player, but it rewards you with very funny gameplay and its historical accuracy.

    While Sengoku Jidai’s historical accuracy and tactical focus made a strong first impression, I found that the more I played and understood its mechanics, the less I enjoyed it.

    Very steep learning curve
    Tutorial teaches very little, you have to go through the manual at least once to learn all the basics

    Very steep learning curve
    Tutorial teaches very little, you have to go through the manual at least once to learn all the basics
    Need much micro-management for large battles, often you would find you units blocking your own units, out of move suddenly when you thought you have enough AP to perform a flank
    Worst thing about this game is forced pursuit.
    Great, you route a unit finally but your own unit would pursuit it without asking you, the commander and thus open up its flank which is very stupid and hard to avoid.
    AI is not bad, not too challenging or too stupid. You often find you are defeated by the game mechanics because it is too hard to understand.
