No 2 player for Story mode really killed it for me. I was really looking forward to playing this with my son, but now one of us has to blitz through the story mode in easy mode to unlock the players we want to play. Half the fun is leveling up the generals, and doing that alone while the 2nd player watches is lame.
I am very glad I rented this and not purchased it and been stuck with a lemon of a game. If Koei reads this please put out a patch that allows 2 player story mode.
