How do you feel about railways? If your answer involves the words 'expanding' and 'empire', then Fall of the Samurai may be the Total War: Shogun 2 expansion for you. This standalone campaign is set just before and during the Meiji Restoration period, which as people who've been to Wikipedia will know is when Japan's feudal system finally came to an end. (It's not called Fall of the Samurai for nothing.)

Alongside new clans, units and countless other bits and bobs, the campaign features more technologically advanced units, including Gatling guns and steam-powered, artillery-equipped ships. Well, what else would you expect from the most modern Total War setting to date?

a glorious scramble for power elevated by some fantastic new units. Shame about those boring boat battles.
