Postcards from Sengoku Japan: The Mori’s Last Stand

This entry is part 5 of 10 in the series Total War: Shogun 2

Making a game’s visuals spectacular is a technical achievement. Making them beautiful is an artistic one, and at its best, Shogun 2 delivers both. Here, as a vastly superior enemy army marches out of the fog, the Mori clan prepares to make its last stand. (To be precise, my last stand. This is what happens when I attempt an econ strategy before securing my borders.)

    But did you win. That does look like a nice defensible bridge.

      Unfortunately no. Too many enemies and their troops were better than mine (they had several units of samurai, I had mostly ashigaru).

  2. Josho says:

    You’d think the bridge could be burnt down. Doesn’t solve the problem of the other river crossing though.

    That’s what I liked with Company of Heroes is being able to destroy bridges, and subsequently rebuild them again.

    • Peter Sahui says:

      True, since you can burn down the castle gates.

      CoH did so many cool things, didn’t it? I wish I could enjoy that game more than I do.
