Is Shogun 2 the best Total War out of the box? Absolutely. Does it need Darthmod for veterans? Also a yes.

I am not knocking on CA, they finally got their work together with Shogun 2. You're actually gonna be astonished at how polished it is. Smooth performance, tons of subtle detail (A pack of deers grazing around a bloody, gory battle is wow) and there are no bugs or bad AI to speak of.

But what Darthmod does is improve an already great foundation. It fixes the slow teching, it buffs economy so you're not broke, it makes unit sizes as big as CA promised on IGN interviews (500 man units, finally) it enhances animations and overall just POLISHES the experience. It doesn't change, alter, ruin, experiment or play with anything like the, still great, Darthmod Empire. For Shogun II it's truly like a fan patch.

I fully recommend Darthmod Shogun II to anybody after their full playthrough. It is, essentially, the epitome of how a community can make a great game perfect and it should not be missed out on. I only wish the launcher was a little more convenient, I can't tell if a setting is actually on or off besides from memory (A check box would be nice) and the lack of co-op campaign support stabley is sort of sad, but you can live with it by setting to failsafe default values.

Great mod, great team, great reviews, great base game--get this.

Improved my game vastly now instead of ten minute battles they last up to half an hour (depending on how many units are in the battle.)
