Not quite as good as Sengoku Musou 2 Empires, but still pretty good
KOEI-TECMO brought back the systems from Empires 2. The systems themselves are improved and add some new twists. The battles themselves are different than Empires 2, much more like Empires 3 where there are good paths and bad paths to take. The game (at least on Normal) revolves around the timer and how you can run through the 12+ officer spawns + the bases and still get the boss in 9-12 minutes. It doesn't seem that you can confront multiple officers with a disadvantage, not because you can't win, but because it would take too much time usually. Definitely worth buying if you haven't played any SW4 titles; also worth buying if fan of previous Empires titles.
