The Mongols did it, but that was a long time ago. Now it's your turn to conquer all of China in Romance of the Three Kingdoms III, KOEI's latest simulation of diplomacy, economics, and war.
 
Many paths, then, make for a rich and evocative tale of the journey to the Emperor's chair. Koei has brought many spices to this, their third telling of the tale. For the first time, it is possible for the worthy gamer to envision himself as one of the many heroes, so true is the telling, so rich the background of the tale. Those marginal warriors who wish a simple fight, devoid of passion, lacking in subtleties, will be overwhelmed by the experience. On the other hand, those with fire in their blood, who relish the thought of battling the best leaders of Chinese antiquity, will find rapture in The Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Go now, and conquer...
 
The changes Koei has made in RTK2 bring the game closer to the form of the novel. These warlords didn't operate in a black-and-white world; their fates rose and fell many times, and they had to deal with familial and political obligations as well as the military and economic ones. Koei's enhancement of the diplomacy, the treachery and the joint military ventures brings out more of this chaotic flavor.
