Anyone else playing?

I just finished Domination campaign with Oda on Normal. Spammed Ashirogi spears and just human waved my enemies. Now Playing Chosokabe on Hard, arrow spam this time, lot more fun to see entire units cut down (to the last man usually) long before they can reach your lines.

I have not simply because I have been sucked up into WOT and now I am starting my old close combat mods:

I see a fair bit of the original in this iteration but not enough for me to bite.

I find that it has been a massive improvement over the original, the inclusion of navies and the massive improvement to archer accuracy balances the game significantly. The game also has an extremely good AI in comparison to other options, main issue so far is that the AI seems to be somewhat free of an economy and can field full stacks of troops with a single castle.

Normal is actually too easy for me, I took Kyoto (it crushed an entire army utterly but I had sent 3 full stacks so I overran them), the rest of the world declared war shortly after but I still won.

This always bothered me in the Total War games. I enjoy the economic aspect of running an empire, but the computer players have seemingly no limit to try to keep any budget. It was a pain in the butt to get any trade deals in Shogun 2, even though I had access to three different trade ports.

To be fair basically all games have this flaw, the AI don't have the limits of an economy.

I've never had that issue, Medieval 2: Total War seemed more player economics controlled but the AI had there economics triggered down by difficulty modes. Empire: Total War economics seemed more vital, even with the AI. All the smaller countries for example had difficulty getting strong armies. All the countries with a large ammount of provinces and trading ports seemed to be the greatest threat. Even when you severely cripple them by taking provinces and taking away there key trading ports. It takes awhile but you gradually notice there ability to gain a menacing military not as likely.

I haven't bought Shogun 2 yet (saving my gaming budget to upgrade to a new PC) but I can't imagine they'd mess up the economics that badly for it. Btw, I hear Shogun 2 has a Multi-player campaign mode. Anybody try that yet?
