So yeah, I really love this game. The story is essentially Koei-lite and nothing to write home about, but the gameplay will have you glued to your NES for hours at a time. It’s a shame Capcom has yet to continue the series because, despite the game’s age, it feels very undated and fresh. If you want a one-of-a-kind experience for your NES, you owe it to yourself to play this.
The control is spot-on, the music is catchy, and the graphics are both bold and bright, a trademark of all Capcom games. A surprisingly fun RPG.

I did not enjoy this RPG as much as others. I would only recommend it to the hard care RPGer. Also if you are familiar with the characters and storylines from Romance of the Three Kingdoms you may have an easier time with this one.
