Shogun 2 Total War trailer beautiful, dishonorable


3:30 PM on 09.02.2010



The new trailer for Creative Assembly's latest Total War game, Shogun 2: Total War, is quite beautiful, and not just because of the pretty pretty graphics, but because it shows off some actual gameplay footage, rather than the vague teasers and cinematic-cut promos from earlier.

In this first pre-alpha "battle report", Kieran Brigden and Ingimar Gudmunsson run commentary on a battle to show off Shogun 2's tactical AI, which is a thing that strategy grognards have given Creative Assembly a lot of crap for over the last few Total War installments (and rightly so). From what it looks like it appears to have improved from before. That said, my real problems with Total War AI came up at the strategic level, so I'll have to wait on another trailer to see if that's changed any.

But that's another matter, for earlier I called the trailer "dishonorable". It certainly is, because Brigden dared call the Takeda faction "evil and dastardly". Such an affront to the Tiger of Kai, especially from a guy playing the barbarians in the Chosokabe clan! Jerk certainly deserved to be right buggered in the opening stages of the trailer.

Check out the trailer for six minutes of strategy fun, and the screenshots for pretty pretty graphics.
