For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill.
To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill.”
– Sun Tzu, ‘The Art of War

NEW YORK, September 12, 2011 - From the makers of Europa Universalis and the Hearts of Iron franchise, Sengoku is a strategy game with a difference. Focusing on the rich cast of characters, this strategy RPG allows the player to take control of a clan leader, or subordinate, and rise to prominence in your attempt to become an all-powerful Shogun. Fight to unite the land of the...

“... balancing the ambitions and reach of supposed surbordinates is the most intriguing and satisfying part of the game.”

“... there’s something seductive about the first moments of discovery, the point at which anything is possible and the pioneer spirit pushes aside the vexed bureaucrat and his concerns about taxation, gazing at the horizon...

“Sengoku is in every aspect a wonderful simulation of its time, and a historical marvel for strategists.”

“... a good game that is recommended for strategy lovers and history buffs and can offer a nice alternative take on Medieval Japan for any fans of Total War: Shogun 2.”

“The setting is pretty much the same as that of Total War: Shogun 2 but there's much greater detail to Sengoku...”

“if you have an interest in Grand Strategy and medieval Japan then this absolutely needs to be on your list”

”Fans of Paradox’s other RTS games will likely feel at home with this one…”

"There are hours of entertainment to be had in Sengoku, and with the game developing differently depending on your actions, there is certainly a lot of replay value to enjoy."

“…Sengoku, if anything, is most notable at creating outstanding stories to tell of your ascent to Shogun.” 

“…if you love feudal Japan and all of the drama’s and plots, you won’t find a closer representation of the time than in Sengoku or you’d be watching a Kurosawa film!”

“...a rather enjoyable portal into the world of feudal Japanese military politics and strategy.”

“Pros: Fun and pretty easy to get into and get lost in.  Crisp and interesting graphics with intuitive interface.  Wealth of historical characters, factions, and interesting and challenging strategy.”

“Sengoku has a fun strong RPG feel as well as the military action”

“In the end I highly recommend this game to serious strategy gamers”

“If, <sic> you enjoy a more cerebral experience that favors long-term planning over impulsive decision making, then Sengoku’s absurdly deep diplomatic system will likely be right up your alley.”

”If you are willing to sink a hour or so into learning the game there is a surprisingly short learning curve for the basics that will have you scheming and plotting your way to power! “

“Great game. Fun to play and above average in quality. You should try it.”

”Overall the game is polished, the map is gorgeous, and the emphasis on goals other than war is a refreshing change from the vast majority of strategy titles out there.”

The fact it’s addictive and enjoyable is even better. This is history made fun.”

“... i...

“It’s depth and simplicity is fairly well balanced, and the focus on diplomacy makes for a very different experience from say, a Total War game (not to mention much lower requirements to play)”

“The strategy and setting in the game is enjoyable, design and graphics attractive although simple and winning wars against rival clans satisfying.”

“The length and depth in this game is huge and there are numerous clans to lead, allowing you to take different approaches to the game each time.”
. enjoyable, challenging experience that forces players to think before they act, and consider the political implications of their every move; for that, I commend it.”

 “Highlighted by the character management, this grand strategy game gives you just enough to do”

If you have never played a Europa-engine game before, then Sengoku is the absolute best place to start...”


“This is not for everyone, but if you want a feudal Japan political simulator, it provides hours of entertainment.”
“…I have no doubt that fans of Paradox's brand of strategy, encapsulated in games like Europa Universalis III and Crusader Kings II, will eat it right up.”

 “…the more I played this game, the more I enjoyed it.”

“…the actual map of Japan is easily the best thing in the game, packing in more easily-digestible information than an edible library.”

“Sengoku is, in many ways, a remarkable game and it’s one that many gamers, looking for something more nuanced than the spectacle of other more action heavy games, will appreciate.” 

“The replay value of the game is actually quite impressive with no two games playing out the same way even when your starting positions are identical.”

“If Japanese-flavoured strategy games are your thing and you appreciate the style of game that Paradox Interactive produces then Sengoku is well worth a purchase.” 

“If you're a sucker for Japanese history and grand strategy, consider this an essential purchase.”


A complicated and concise title...

“Sengoku is an undeniably addictive game and it is the difficulty that makes it so deep.”

“This makes for an unusually deep strategy experience that requires the player to think beyond the idea of occupying a patch of land and simply planting his flag there to claim it as his own”

“The sound is by far the most interesting piece of the presentation. I could simply leave the music on in the background and work all day as it is traditional Japanese with koto, shamisen and shukuhachi.”


“Sengoku is grand strategy at its most accessible.”
“’ll still lose hours to running your clan and it’s hard not to enjoy yourself as the plots provide ludicrous opportunities and ultimate victory comes so close, only to be snatched away as your influence shifts.”

“…if it's a deep, absorbing grand strategy title you are after and you are a more of a content over presentation kind of person then Sengoku delivers in droves”

“Sengoku is an example of a niche title that is executed with style, solid mechanics and provides an incredibly engaging, robust experience that rewards the patient with a wealth of replay options, including custom scenarios and the chance to live out centuries of rich history.”

“A very fresh take on the real-time strategy genre”

“Overall this is a good Strategy blend”

“If you are a fan of Feudal Japan and wanted to give a go with something a bit different to Europa Universalis or Hearts of Iron you will not miss with this title!”
