** Armstrong guns are infamous among the fanbase for being high up in the running for the title of "Most horrendously powerful unit in the Total War series".

** Armstrong guns are infamous among the fanbase for being high up in the running for the title of "Most horrendously powerful unit in the Total War series". The only thing that stops them from becoming too powerful (and more useful than Parrot guns) is the lack of high-explosive shells for demolishing infantry and fortifications.


Added DiffLines:

* GoddamnBats: The most persistent annoyance that you'll be subjected to is sea trade route raids and port blockades by hostile fleets. It can get bad at the start when you have no money to spare on ship construction and fleet upkeep and will get even worse when realm divide/final stand begins.

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeArt: While [[BrokenBase like all of the games]], there are always varying opinions on ''Shogun 2'', but the quality of its polish and art direction is rarely debated. The multitude of Japanese woodblock-style artwork used inside the game were [[DoingItForTheArt all created entirely by the art team]], and [[ShownTheirWork their fidelity]] caused some people to wonder in error where these authentic Japanese pieces used inside the game came from.

* SpiritualLicensee: The ''Fall of the Samurai'' DLC may as well be a prequel to ''Film/TheLastSamurai''. One reviewer even called it "the TomCruise DLC."

* MostWonderfulSound: There's nothing quite like the advisor saying "My Lord! A glorious victory will soon be yours!" because it usually means the enemy is on its last legs.

Added DiffLines:

* GameBreaker: One of Realm Divide's harshest effects is the loss of your trade partners, costing you thousands in gold income per turn. Well, if you establish vassals ''after'' Realm Divide, those vassals won't be affected by the Realm Divide diplomatic penalty and would love to trade with you. Just don't try it in ''Fall of the Samurai'' -- vassals retain their Shogun/Emperor allegiance and still hate a Republic clan.

** Basic starter units never quite go obsolete, and in fact can be surprisingly effective, especially as they gain experience and receive province-specific or ranked general boosts. [[ElitesAreMoreGlamorous Samurai are more interesting, varied, and technically more powerful]], but that doesn't mean a lot when yari ashigaru available from everywhere can still best them, especially with a well-utilized yari wall (think along the lines of European pikes). On a similar note, bow kobayas are the only boats you really need to win just about any naval engagement, especially after you research fire arrows. What bow kobayas lack in boarding capability, they make up for with high maneuverability that allows them to kite many boats that are slower. (Sengoku bunes are one of the few boats that can outpace them, but only if the wind is in their favor.) Any other boat, no matter how big and imposing, can eventually be burnt to destruction. For FotS, the situation is similar to the base game, at least in terms of land battles. You can win with nothing more than spear levies and line infantry, both quite rudimentary units. If you want to research artillery tech, you never need to go past the early availability of parrott guns as they are already quite effective.
