This is the first game in Koei's highly regarded historical strategy series based upon the life and exploits of Oda Nobunaga, the heartless Japanese warlord who is grudgingly given credit for unifying the nation under the Emperor's rule during the latter part of the 16th century AD. Nobunaga's efforts were eventually solidified into the Japan we know today by one of his chief lieutenants - Tokugawa Ieyasu, first of the Tokugawa shoguns.

One of the most ambitious historical sims yet conceived and second only to the Romance of the Three Kingdoms series in terms of worldwide popularity. Pretty standard stuff as historical sims go, but well done and gives you a chance to experience some of the history behind one of the oldest continuous monarchies in the world. Highly recommended.
