Very few people have seen this game, but it had a blend of both real-time combat (via troops moving in formation) and personal honor (go rescue your daugher singlehandedly from your opponent's castle. Do this and other game mechanics successfully, and you will slowly control all of Japan!
The formation combat was a bit slow and not all that exciting.
The Bottom Line
Another of the great Sid Meier's triumphs, although not very well known.
