7 hours of playtime in a row can't lie. and still only on half way for becoming shogun and 2/3 of japan remaining unconquered. after some more day's consisting of my agents (mostly ninjas and some metsuke and monks) taking out generals and setting riots, my Uesugi war monks finishing off the Date and later my once-so-allied Hojo thats the kind of gameplay you can get. and more since its pretty huge. every decision you take has a very high role, if not now then later and surely when your japan gets divided by you and the rest. diplomacy works very well, my whole faith depended on it, having a marriage with the Oda and some other clan, preventing them to go berserk against me like the rest.
