With this game on sale today, would it be better to get the Original Shogun 2 or just to skip to Fall of the Samurai? I haven't played either of them previously, but I have dabbled with some of the other Total War games.

If anyone has any insight that would be great.

@jeffsekai: They're both great, and different enough to warrant playing both imo.

Well in general the original concerns clan wars fought in feudal japan. Fall of the Samurai introduces non-japanese forces which include heavy artillery and firearms. Fall of the samurai is kind of like an expansion that takes place in a different time period and shakes up the mechanics quite significantly. If you only get one I would say fall of the samurai has everything the original did (expect the campaigns obviously) and has a lot of diversity and very great campaigns of its own.
