Shogun Total War was released June 13th 2000. This game had more memory than many other PC games combined! In short nothing less than a true gaming PC was going to be able to run this at full graphics and even then it would be a strain on your computer system. This is a turn based RTS game in which one controls dark age Japan with armies of samurai. Just imagine as the game loads and you find your self in control of an ancient japanies city building communities, armies, forging trading between other warlords, and even hiring ninja’s for sabatog and assassination. This game was nothing short of amazing with hundreds of possible hours of different and unique gaming options. Just imagine as your army comes on to the field and you movie toward the enemy castle. Your troops are scaling the walls, as the enemy archers fire down upon your ever advancing troops. Some of your men break moral and begin to run when your general mounted on horse back rides in and rallies your troops and they finally scale the wall each unit entering unique combat between the enemy troops. I’d give it 8.5 out of 10 stars and recommend it highly!.
