It's simply a random map with a few building and two armies.
The samurai easily defeat the "Japanese Army" but then of-course takes ages to destroy the gates and buildings.
On a historical note, I believe the Samurai and the Japanese were on the same side.

Not at all like the movie, you should have filled in the names. More cannons would have made it even better. Also, it was the Samurai town that was being attacked, they did not want to fight at all. Finally, the battle was very disproportend, I might have been able to win not moving as the enemy attacked only with small groups at a time. Hamish, you were right, the Samurai were like Europe's Knights or Lords, but Tom Cruise movies defy tiny things like facts.

A poor looking map. But it was really tense when I tried a full fledged assult. I attack with all my men, and almost my entire army was desimated! I took my Last Samurai (Aldrin), and about twelve samurai that survived, all wounded, and sneeked around to the enemy fort while they wasted my town. I destroyed most of their town and then they came looking for me. So I destroyed the rest of the village and then ran. They broke into small groups and I would attack them. Finaly there was about five riflemen left, and I had the leader, and two samurai. It was a close battle and I won with only my Last Samurai (Aldrin) left alive at about thirteen health. But it was not a good game.
