The enthralling Shogun 2 and its two expansions, Rise of the Samurai and Fall of the Samurai make up Total War Shogun 2 Gold Edition, a collection that gives you the whole strategy game shebang.
It still blows my mind how many strategy fans have not played this game. It was one of my games of the year back in 2011. If you're thinking about getting in with this release, be warned: it will suck you in.
