It's hard to really compare RoTK to anything else on the VC at the moment. It is undeniably unique, but I doubt many people will get the full value out of it. It requires a lot of time and effort and much of the game is spent simply keeping check of resources and indulging in diplomacy. If you're after something action packed then steer well clear, however if you feel that the current drop of VC releases fail to tax your grey matter, then you could do a lot worse than download this.
Romance of the Three Kingdoms is a near-impenetrable series of strategy games based on the famous Chinese novel of the same name. However, the series has garnered enough fans over the years to warrant more than 20 different incarnations across platforms ranging from the Nintendo Entertainment System to the PlayStation 2. Now the series has made its way to the Wii in the form of Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV: Wall of Fire for the Virtual Console. Originally released for the Super Nintendo in 1995, the game is now available for download for a steep 800 points ($8). Just like all the other Romance of the Three Kingdoms games, IV is a dense, esoteric strategy game that can be rewarding, but only if you're extremely patient or well versed in the mechanics of the series.
