Nobunaga's Ambition: Taishi is a slow-moving strategy game that needs long hours of play, a complex user interface and a smooth and annoying system of instructions rather than being useful to newcomers. On the other hand, the title provides many historical information about feudal Japan and real characters and battles from this era.

Maybe the years are a weigh heavily for this last Nobunaga's Ambition or maybe the consoles are not its home anymore but Nobunaga's Ambition: Taishi feels old, clumsy and hard to play on a DualShock 4. It good features are covered by its defects.

Nobunaga's Ambition: Taishi is certainly the kind of game that you can get lost in, constantly muttering 'one more turn' while losing sleeping and playing into the wee hours of the morning.

Nobunaga's Ambition: Taishi is an interesting, but painfully slow and uninvolving strategy game that I want to praise more, but in comparison to its contemporaries, I can't help but feel it still needs work. Shame, as the strategy flavor of Nobunaga's Ambition has always appealed to me, but in practice it feels sluggish and makes me yearn for strategy games I'll enjoy that much more.
