Skulls of the Shogun takes the somewhat stuffy genre of turn-based strategy and peps it up for the modern attention span. Based in feudal Japan -- or, rather, a mythical, skeleton-infested Japanese afterlife -- Skulls of the Shogun places you in the bones of the fearsome General Akamoto, who, on the verge of attaining the shogunate, was betrayed and killed by a subordinate. In the afterlife, he continues his crusade -- just because.


RATING T for Teen

PLOT A strategy game in Japan of yore

DETAILS Xbox 360, Windows Phone, PC, $15

BOTTOM LINE Fast-paced
