Summary: I have never heard of this game, my boyfriend convinced me in buying it. It looked like a fun game and i found it at a game store for $3, so why not. Biggest mistake i ever made i am glad i only spent $3 on it. It was so dull and boring. You practically do nothing. i wanted to give it 0 stars but it wouldn't let me. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!! even if it's really cheap don't buy it.
Summary: All I really have to say, is that this gamed looked promising inside the store. The game disk box cover and the writing on the back side, made this game out to be something really special, nope, nothing special about it all, other than being one of the confusing games I've played in quite some time. To me that game play was horrible, the action was a tad bit slow, it's almost like they tried to incorporate a RPG and a FPS all in one.
Summary: This game was really interesting to me because of how much I had to think in order to even begin the game. There are many things about the game that I like but I will keep it short. The graphics are descent. The gameplay is absolutely incredible. If you have to sit there for an hour over one battle, then you know its a good game. The fact that you get to choose what to do to strengthen your army made me actually feel like I was the one in control.
Brilliant. game, for those who like KOEIs games...

Summary: Kessen 2 is a game which suits me fine. Good graphics, Cool music and excellent gameplay. However, if you are not into ROTK stories and strategy / Epic battle games maybe you should avoid it as it can be somewhat tedious. The story is excellent and there are alot of cool characters and plots. I played it non-stop (Well, almost. I went to work in between the sessions) just because I wanted to know how the story would unfold. I still play it sometimes.

Summary: As one of many players with a background in old-school strategy / war simulation games, I have played several installments of KOEI's Romance of the Three Kingdoms. So naturally, Kessen seemed worthy of further investigation. What you probably already know is that the Kessen series covers the same historic period as the RTK series. And it has the same great personalities of all the Generals. So what makes it unique?
Summary: OMG... U ppl dont just get it its not china, its japan and the reason i rate it the best is because it has samurais and ninjas plus funny parts but if they had more higher rates in kessen 3 i would have rated kessen 3 the best
Summary: I got Kessen 2 for christmas a long time ago, around when it came out. Since then it has kept me entertained. I dont play this game constantly, every once in a while I'll see it in my gaming library and decide to pick it up again. After you beat the game as Lui Bei, you can play through as Cao Cao and select the difficulty level for either campaign. This gives the game some replay value. Yet I don't feel that I need to think that much with this game.
Summary: I am most likely not alone when I say I bought this game because it was on sale for around ten dollars. Koei has had quite a bit of sucess with the ROTK based games, but they seem to have slipped a little with this one. The graphics are good for the most part, but the animation is, at times, choppy and un-fluid. But I can live with that. The dubbing...oh the horror... Couldn't the US editors have tried at least a LITTLE bit better to time it right?
