Image, you are a famous Japanese General in the War-time period of Japan. In this period of time, there is only chaos and wars in all parts of Japan . And now you are the one who is destinate to conquest all parts of Japan and stop the civils wars by eliminated your opponents and unite Japan under your rule.
What am I talking about?? Guuyuu! This game is made by KOEI, who is very famous because of the Sangoku and Gunyuu series they made. KOEI also is one of the oldest Computer game company in Japan. How old? Let me put this way, If I remember correctly I played the 1st version of sangoku on my "i286"!! Besides that, at one point KOEI was the leading SLG maker in Japan (not sure if they still are or not?) And Sanguko (or Gunyuu) is running on most kid's computer. But, If you were to compare this game with starcraft or AOE (age of empire), this game would be a joke!! For the fact that they still using the same style as they did in the first version. (No fancy graphics or cool short movies and 60+% text base SLG) But If you are one of those Die-Hart KOEI's SLG fans, then this game is a must in your collections of KOEI games.
The game itself is base on the history of Japanese War-time period, but it never tell you any story on it. Well, think about it. Did Age of Empire tells you cool stories in the game? Besides you don't really need to know the story or the history to play this kind of game.
Well, it really depends on your "taste" of games. I personally give it a 6/10, but my friend think this game is a 10/10.
No cool or any fancy graphics. Like I said before this game is 60+% text base.
