If you are looking for anything fundamentally new or different in this series, you won't find it here. Those who don't know this series might find the excessive micro-management daunting. Those who liked the previous ROMANCE titles, though, will discover that this is the best ROMANCE game yet. The inclusion of new technology (and the resultant weapons), special abilities to generals, SVGA graphics and improved city management, not to mention a very catchy soundtrack, should be enough to entice old warlords back to the Three Kingdoms for another go at uniting the warring states of the Middle Kingdom.
Das Ur-Romance oder auch Bandit Kings of Ancient China fand ich gut. Auf diese x-te Neuauflage in nahezu unveränderter Machart kann ich jedoch verzichten. Grafik, Technik und Bedienung sind völlig veraltet. In Sachen Spieltiefe braucht sich Romance 4 nicht zu verstecken - bis man auf einen grünen Zweig kommt, ist viel kluges Management, effizientes Kämpfen und geschicktes Verhandeln gefragt. Normalsterbliche machen aber trotzdem das, was Chinesen jahrhundertelang um die Verbotene Stadt machten: einen großen Bogen.

The Romance of the Three Kingdoms games were always a little rough-hewn, but managed to succeed nonetheless because of their depth and content. They offered sweeping strategy gaming set in the politically charged atmosphere of China's Warring Kingdoms epoch, with a rich cast of characters and solid gameplay. In each, you played leader of a kingdom, responsible for raising and equipping armies, capturing other cities, increasing the wealth and happiness of your citizens, and forging alliances with other leaders, each with their own unique characters. The goal is to bend all of China under your yoke.

Det är allt administrerande som Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV faller på. Efter ett par timmars pulande med att utöka åkerarealer och gå igenom de rekryterade personernas tjugoelva olika attribut blev det här spelet för mycket.
