    all of the reviews so far have been very positive stating a return to the more focused style of rome and medieval without sacrificing the epicness that empire provides. ai is also said to have improved. i was originally going to pass on this one but now i am second guessing myself as i am a fan of the series.

    anyone going buy?

    if the reviews are all good and consensus on forums is the same I will

    I loved shogun tw prolly my favorite (rome being second) of the total war series. hopefully they do a good job and it's just as epic as the original only with more units and better graphics

    I'll be buying this. So pumped for multiplayer campaign. The beta version of it on empire was EPIC.

    apparently dx11 will not be ready until 4-6 weeks after launch. so mid april. the game will ship though with full dx10 msaa and what not. that may spur people into waiting to buy it.

    Pre-ordered it 2 months ago. It seems Total war doesn't disappoint... well not me at least.

    empire disappointed at launch imo. But they did a good job of patching and the modding community filled the other holes

    I didn't play it a launch but apparently it sucked several degrees of suck. Thankfully according to the reviews I've read so far Shogun 2 is nowhere near as buggy as Empire.

    They never fixed empire. They released napoleon as a cash in and left empire to rot; I didn't buy nap on principal. Even the community mods never fixed the diplomatic AI or made the battle AI much of a challange.

    Rumour was the AI programmer just left just before release.

    Just less than 2 days to go. I have steam version pre-ordered.

    I favor Koei's Nobunaga no Yabo tendo over Total war shogun 2 since Koei's game is overall more accurate in everything, but it will be good to have an alternative game dealing with Sengoku era.

    Also pre-ordered Yakuza 4 and Ar Tonelico Qoga.

    Although DA2 disappointed me greatly, March is going to be good with new games flooding in.

    Edit : I hope Total Shogun war 2 won't suffer from a recurring issue of Koei's Nobunaga no yabo. It's that Shimazu clan in later Senguku era is unmatched in both authority and military power in Kyushu. And if you pick a clan that's located far away from Shimazu, it becomes impossible to stop them later.

    Romance of three kingdom games were a test ground for koei to test new features and then approved features were implemented into Nobunaga no yabo series. That is how it has always been.

    It's made by the same company, even by the same division, so yes, the arts are going to be similar. But romance of three kingdom has kinda been abandoned by koei.

    I play the Japanese version. Since I've been playing it for so long, I memorized kanji names of samurai. I couldn't remember all though since there are 800+ samurai in the game who historically existed. The game is released on PC, Xbox3, PS3. You might get an English version for Xbox360 and PS3 in 2011, but PC version has never been published anywhere outside of Japan.

    P.S. I play PC version since graphic is so much better for PC.
