The attention to detail is absolutely insane. The graphics are really good. It’s hard to believe it only took Tecmo Koei just two years to develop a game with this level of detail. There is also dual audio available, for those of you that prefer to play with the original Japanese voices. You can customize the game’s difficulty to your liking or you can use the pre-set difficulties for each scenario. There is a ton of content in this one, and after writing my Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence – Ascension Review, I can easily recommend that you get the game today. If you’re looking for a complex and robust strategy game, this is the one you need!

Ascension is at its best when you allow it to wow you, let it win you over… It requires as much patience as the developers had, but it rewards you. With that, Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence – Ascension is a staggering accomplishment, and a pretty darn good game, too.

Despite largely being a repackaging of last year's game, 'Nobunaga's Ambition: Sphere of Influence - Ascension' makes smart changes to the formula that immediately pay off. The new game still controls a bit wonky using a controller, but the revamped user interface does make the strategy title more accessible. The future looks bright for Tecmo Koei's strategy series, and its new focus on individual officers is definitely the way to go.

Unifying Japan has never felt so personal. Ascension is as much about your own story as it is about Japan's, and what will be best for your clan is not always necessarily what will be best for you.

This game, like its predecessor, is very niche and very serious, but it’s a very worthy and very intelligent complement to last year’s Nobunaga’s Ambition.

Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence – Ascension is a hell of a game built upon an already solid framework. This blows the already great Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII out of the water, and is an essential purchase for anyone who enjoys complex strategy games, or has a passing interest in Japanese history.

A great strategy title that hides itself behind some pretty inaccessible beginnings. What it lacks in visual flair it more than makes up for in strategic depth. The political system especially gives a great simulation of the trials of leadership. For strategy fans, this should definitely be on your radar. For anyone new to the genre, give it a go but be prepared to exercise patience while you learn how the game works.

What happens when you take an already excellent strategy title, tweaking the little things while adding a new layer of depth? You wind up with an outstanding game that is more of an enhanced game than a true sequel, but no matter what you call it Nobunaga's Ambition: Sphere of Influence - Ascension is an excellent strategy game that once again proves that they can exist on consoles as well as PC's.
