Total War: Shogun 2 – Fall of the Samurai Review

“The music was a great enhancement to the game, containing relaxing traditional Japanese string and wind instruments that gave you the feel of being in a Japanese garden. The stronger drums and gongs added to the intensity of battle situations. The more modern music adds some more classical elements not usually associated with traditional Japanese music, but that core is still there. Songs like “Battle of Shinobue” and “Northern Wind,” from the original, encapsulate the very essence of the samurai, while “Winds of Fate” and “Beautiful Blade,” from Fall of the Samurai, retain the same instrumental elements but with a tone of sadness, as you leave tradition behind. The result is a subtle shift in music that mirrors your decisions in the game.”
