Romance of the Three Kingdoms XI


Romance of the Three Kingdoms XI is yet another installment of the classic Chinese strategy game. If you're a fan of the RotTK series, you're sure to enjoy this one!



This is a very immersive strategy game, and you need to accept that it'll take a long time to play. Not long as in "millions of maps that you get to explore while non-stop fighting your enemies". It's long as in "first you have to build your barracks. Then you have to slowly build up your enemy. Don't forget about all the hassles of moving supplies around to keep your army fed and taken care of."

Your world is set in historical China, in the early 100s / 200s. There are literally hundreds of characters, and if you've been playing these series, many of them are quite familiar. You are actually learning some history while you play a game :)

The graphics are quite pretty, especially during some of the cut scenes. It is like watching a Chinese painting come to live. In the battle you get some 3D rendering of what is going on, but the focus is not on fast-moving button mashing. It is very much about strategy, about managing your resources.

This game will appeal to people who want to sit down for many hours at a stretch, delve themselves into what their troops are doing, how each area is being managed, learning all the glossary terms, becoming a Chinese historian.

For gamers who want a quick hack-and-slash for a half hour before dinner, they will become frustrated and bored with the attention needed to get through this game.

Well recommended for serious strategy gamers. Make sure you go through the long tutorial first, to get a solid grounding in how the game works.
