The Romance of the Three Kingdoms series is the Madden Football of console strategy games. Each year a new installment is released with slightly tweaked rosters, a few new music tracks, & maybe a couple of novel, off-the-field modes to play with. Despite the slight differences though, the actual game play never changes drastically, and the objective is always the same: khổng lồ win the Super Bowl, which in the case of the Three Kingdoms games means to unify ancient, war-torn China. Koei"s 10th Romance of the Three Kingdoms game doesn"t do much khổng lồ mark the occasion, but it still offers the same esoteric war strategy experience that keeps dedicated fans coming back time và time again.

There are 650 quality officers in the game, và if that isn"t enough, you can create your own.

When you vì set out to lớn conquer the land, you"ll get a break from the menus in the khung of a turn-based strategy battle system. You can choose lớn let the computer fight the battle & just wait for the results, but you"d be missing out on the best part of the game. Once you assign a force lớn attack a city, you"ll march to the city và a battle will commence. Lớn win a battle you have lớn destroy the main gate of the city, destroy all of the enemy troops, or defeat the commanding officer. There is a 30-round limit to fulfill one of these conditions, which keeps the battles from becoming tiresome. The turn-based battle system is similar to that of any other turn-based strategy trò chơi in that you move on a grid and attack enemies with various types of units. There"s a rock-paper-scissors dynamic lớn the battles--foot soldiers are strong against archers, archers are strong against mounted soldiers, & mounted soldiers are strongest against foot soldiers. This makes for fairly well-balanced battles because it means a small force still sometimes has a chance against a much larger force. Once you breach the city walls, the battle continues within the city, where you"ll have lớn defeat any remaining enemies.

In addition to lớn battles và administrative tasks, you can also participate in one-on-one duels & debates against other officers.

These are simple minigames, và for the most part your participation is voluntary. By winning duels & debates you can capture enemies, force a new diplomatic policy on another officer, or just increase your fame. The duels & debates are simple và usually brief, but they offer a welcome departure from the rest of the game.

Whether you"re in a duel, on the battlefield, in your castle, or just exploring the countryside, you won"t see much in the way of impressive graphics. The character portraits & backgrounds have a colorful hand-painted look, but the rest of the graphics are strictly utilitarian. But that works just fine for a strategy game where most of your time is spent reading text and checking stats anyway. There"s only so much that can be done to dress up a thực đơn screen, so fancy visual effects take a backseat to the interface, which is perfectly acceptable for a trò chơi of this type.

The graphics aren"t great, but they"re functional for a strategy game.

The music and sound effects are also about standard for a Romance of the Three Kingdoms game. The soundtrack is appropriately dramatic, with heavy chanting & powerful war drums, but it"s kept subtle enough that you won"t realize it"s there until you find yourself humming one of the tunes. The sound effects are few and far between, và most take place during battle. You"ll hear the same few sounds over & over, but again they fit the need here, & they aren"t repeated to the point of becoming annoying. There are no voice-overs in Romance of the Three Kingdoms X; the dialogue is text only.

Romance of the Three Kingdoms X may not be quite the grand, celebratory leap forward you might expect from such an anniversary, but in keeping the game play familiar Koei offers perhaps the best reward lớn the longtime fans who have kept the series alive for more than 15 years. This trò chơi probably won"t convert you if you aren"t already interested in the strategy or history of it, but if you can get past the bare-bones presentation, you"ll easily get wrapped up in the deep strategy and intriguing storyline this trò chơi has lớn offer.
