A tactical strategy game set in feudal China, Dynasty Tactics is an offshoot of the Dynasty Warrior series. The game puts the player in the shoes of one of 3 military leaders. Through strategy, acquired military might, and diplomacy, the player must strive to conquer the game's 60 cities.
Battles take place on a 3D grid, in a turn-based format. Through deft use of battlefield tactics, including a deep combo attack system, players must meet certain requirements to win the battle. Multiple paths through the game (including multiple endings) will keep armchair military generals coming back.
The game is based heavily on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, a Chinese historical epic that is a blend of actual history and fantasy. (More information on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms can be found here).
