Fate of the Dragon is a large-scale real-time strategy game that depicts one of the most famous and turbulent periods in Chinese history - the Three Kingdoms era. Following the collapse of the empire at the end of the Han Dynasty, heated opposition divided China into three Kingdoms – Wei, Wu and Shu, and the age of rivalry of warlords dawned.

As one of the three warlords, lead your kingdom in building your own regime, develop new technologies, establish strategic alliances and create a mighty army in an attempt to control the three kingdoms and reunify the nation.

A disgrace to the RTK saga. Possibly one of the most over-rated strategy games known. Indra is stressed (20014) 2.8 Stars2.8 Stars2.8 Stars2.8 Stars2.8 Stars

If you're wondering what are the four Chinese characters on the cover mean... It stands for "Three Kingdoms Proud through the Ages".
