Game Review:

What is the axiom of war? There isn't much benefit to it because of the tragic losses faced on both sides of the warring nations. It results in death and separated nations. Of course, it can lead to good in the case of some situations, such as the American Revolution, which led to the freedom of the Colonies, which has become the current world power, America. In most other cases, wars lead to nothing good or special. War has been recreated on nearly every medium, movies, TV, music, and games. Now, even those people that are not eligible for military service can experience the horrors and fame that come with war. Strategy games have been on a steady rise since its birth of computer gaming. Gaming experiences have been recreated, covering all of human history, from before the common era in Age of Empires and to the far future in Imperium Galactica II: Alliances. Now with Shogun: Total War, we're tossed back in time about 400 years to the time of warring Japan.
