Sure, it looks great and for those of us who like this kind of thing, it plays extremely well, but Kou Shibusawa must be able to crank these things out in his sleep and it's really starting to get kind of old.
Of course, watching numbers rise and fall really has to thrill you to enjoy any Koei game, but this time the enhanced graphics and smooth command interface seem to hide the number-crunching behind political intrigue and battle strategy. Wall of Fire adds spice to Romance.

Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV is another example of exemplary gaming by the developers at Koei. Strategy fans should rejoice at the release of another of these titles. But, as I have said previously concerning Koei games, they sometimes drag a little and can become quite tedious to play. So don't bother getting this game unless you're interested in no-frills strategy where a smart diplomat can be just as important as a mighty warrior.
