Description official descriptions

The sequel to Romance of the Three Kingdoms. The game concept is still the same, though they did improve a lot of features that one may consider 'disturbing' from RTK I (e.g. Generals dying easily due to disease, etc.). RTK can be said to be much more 'stable' where players no longer have to worry that much about time length in the game, as the game take a slower time rate to allow the players to build up their forces without much interference. The RTK II gameplay and interface is closely similar to Nobunaga's Ambition II.

Probably the easiest of the early Historical Simulation Series games from Koei

The Good
The detail on the historical information (it is in all of Koei's Historical Simulations), the names of rulers, what happened when it really did. There are many scenarios, starting in the late second century and going to the three rulers coveting control of China (Liu Bei, Cao Cao and Sun Quan). It is actually the easiest of the early Historical simulations Kou Shibusawa produced and designed. It was a bit looser on giving more gold for more peoples loyalty (In January), and more rice for full land value (in July) than the others in this series.

The Bad
You can not recruit other rulers once you have captured them, they must be released (if theres an open space) or executed. The music got annoying after awhile because the tracks are too short.

The Bottom Line
Any History buff should play this, especially if its Chinese History you are into.
