Computer Gaming World (CGW)
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.
