SEGA and The Creative Assembly are proud to let gamers everywhere know that a demo for Total War: Shogun 2 will soon be available on Steam. The demo will allow all armchair samurai to test their skills in epic land battles and on Total War: Shogun 2’s gorgeous new campaign map.
As you probably know Shogun Total War 2 is about to being released..
Before Creative Assembly shaked the pc gaming with Shogun Total War (the first not fully 3d), to play in the feudal japan, in the medieval age, in the Roman Empire or in the Napoleonic Age, there were other games, so here a little show of those games…
Back in the Stone Age, the first Total War game was a masterpiece, never before was seen such a great rts engine with thousands of units in the field with scenographic and epic battlefields, after some time it was introduced the Rome Total War, which was in Full 3D and the last Empire which added naval battles and multiplayer campaign with Napoleon..
I wonder how this Shogun 2 will be? Maybe we will see samurai climbing the walls of castles, Rifleman will build defensive trenches, furious and spectacular sword fights, full multiplayer support or arcade scene like in a old Amiga game Lords of the Rising Sun.. since now technology and powerful cpus allows for all this goodness.
The following are pbem (play by email) online strategy games. Please note i have excluded from this list Age of Conquest cause i found a virus on the game page, but the others games seems fine.
