In the year 2000 my Mum bought a home PC and so I went to a games store to look for something to play. I always had a thing for ninja and samurai and Japanese history and culture in general so when I saw this game on the shelf and how many awards it had recently won I thought I'd give it a shot.
Let me just say, this isn't just nostalgia speaking. I loved it back then and I would still occasionally play it up until September last year when I finally bought a modern gaming PC and got the sequel. Even so, I'm sure I'll probably return to it from time to time. It has the most replay value of any video game I have ever come across.
Wow, just wow, this game is REALLY good. Of course its lacking some of the features of later total war games (such as battles being playable that aren't ridiculously hard to play) But for its time, this was beyond a masterpiece!
love it. just rebought it from online game vendor. best Â£8 i ever spent to get the gold edition. not greatly graphical but i never enjoyed the strategic battles, i just love the strategy map and moving large armies to impending doom or victory
Посчастливилось начать знакомства с серией именно с первой части. Япония периода Сэнгоку-Дзидай прекрасна и многие часы пройденные в игре тому доказательство, но оценивая игру в 2021 ограниченность всех механик и возможностей бросается в глаза.
