Fall of the samurai is more better than Shogun 2.
Map way more bigger = more challenge. For once, ambushes was actually slightly relevant. I'm not sure but I think i saw a girl general in there on battlefield..
And i was actually pummeled pretty hard in fall of the samurai compared to shogun 2 even when I started as oda. Played as choshu and won but actually came pretty close to losing but I pulled off a few heroic wins or what npc would call, me pulling a jew moment in battlefields.
But there's stupid moments as well, I was all chilling on this nice hill, and this a band of spearmen want my hill and i was like no so they're like charge! And i'm like bang! And the next, they're running for the life. Sure, charge my rifleman on open territory. >.> Threw 3k+ spearmen in attempt to dislodge 1k which also had several royal marines in it. And they only killed like 150 soldiers across all my units. AI needs work in the area where they don't have any ranged units vs my rifleman.
